The Lab Slot Review
If you’re a bit of science geek then The Lab slots from El Studios will definitely light up your bunsen burner. It’s a slick looking slot which features chemical symbols and crystals as the reel symbols. The game is accompanied by a Jean Michel-Jarre style soundtrack which helps immerse you into the world of The Lab.
Even if you’re not into science then this 5 reel and 15 payline slot could grab your attention. It features sliding wilds and betting stategies – features we’ve not previously seen on other games. The sliding wilds activate when The Lab symbol pops in on the middle second reel. At this point the reels move across, The Lab becomes wild and you have 10 free spins – with the chance to double your winnings too.
Betting strategies allow you to set how you wager – there’s Jumper which steps up one level at a time to x10 your base bet when you win; Leveller raises your bet by two levels after 5 consecutive losses; whilst Booster jumps up a level on each loss.
The Lab slots game looks great and the symbols that include O2 (Oxygen), Au (Gold), Pt (Platinum) and H2O (water) look great when combined with the Superman-esque crystals. The swirling vortex that’s always in motion behind the reels adds to the theme.
The free spins feature is good, although don’t expect it to always generate big wins. Imagine a wild on the middle fourth reel of any slot game and then you’ll get the expectation of winning on theis feature. That said it’s uniqueness does make it stand out from other slots that we’ve played and it most certainly adds to the excitement when it drops in.
The betting strategies feature is more of a gimmick! We tried it on Booster – with our wager increasing on every loss – and just felt we actually lost more money. Instead of 15 spins at 30 coins we ended up with five at 30, 60, 90, 120 and 150 – and lost the same amount but just in a shorter time. The thing is a few pennies win at 150 coins is enough to reset you back to 30 so it’s bigger cash for small rewards. Our advice would therefor be use with caution. You can always wager up and down yourself on each spin.
The Lab slots is a good alternative from the usual NetEnt, IGT, Microgaming and Pariplay games that are around. Let us know what you think.
