Spectra is the New Neon
Spectra is a 4-row, 5-reel, 30-fixed payline slot. Its glowing symbols resemble the neon lights of Vegas and contrast sharply against a black background. Beams of colored light strobe out from the symbols during gameplay. Synthesized tones of an electronic keyboard dominate the soundtrack creating a futuristic mood. The overall graphics quality is rather flat and unimpressive. When compared to the delicious 3-D animations of iSoftbet’s similarly themed slot, Neon Reels, Spectra falls disappointingly short. Especially, for players that favor playing in a virtual reality setting provided by SlotsMillion online casino. While the bright symbols appear virtually the same, Neon Reels stands out with its bold, sharp graphics and eye-popping, exciting win animations.
Spectra displays all values for Balance, Total Bet and Win in cash only beneath the 4 x 5 reels at the bottom of the slot screen. This online slot offers several Total Cash Bet options ranging from 10p – £100 at Mr Green. All winning combo values listed in the Paytable are shown in cash. As players change Total Cash Bet selection, the pays change to reflect possible winning outcomes. Wins are highlighted on the reels as groups of matching symbols brightly shine.
Spectra has 10 electrifying slot symbols that consist of geometric shapes and some classics such as Red-7s, BARs and Bells. Each and every symbol pops out on the reels in vibrant color against the inky blackness. There is only one special symbol – a Stacked Wild. The Stacked Wild is actually one long symbol that can fill an entire reel taking from as little as 1 to as much as 4 symbol spaces at a time. This symbol can form its own winning combination of 5 of a kind, and it substitutes for any regular symbol. There are 9 regular symbols. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: BAR, Red-7, Bell, Clover, Pentagon, Diamond, Square, Triangle and Circle.
Spectra’s gameplay is left to right only, so get 3+ of any regular symbol or 5 Wilds to form a winning combination starting from reel 1. Spectra’s highest paying slot symbol is the rainbow colored Stacked Wild symbol which pays 20x the Total Bet for a 5 of a kind match along a single payline. This symbol gives Spectra the potential to award up to 600x the Total Bet along all 30 paylines. The highest paying regular symbol awards 10x the Total Bet for a 5 of a kind match. Spectra’s Stacked Wild Re-spins Feature combines with these symbols to give this online slot the potential to award up to 2400x the Total Bet on a single wager.
As with many Thunderkick online video slots, Spectra offers an Autoplay option. It ranges from 5-5,000 consecutive spins. Press the ‘stop’ button to bring Autoplay to an end manually. Game Features include: click the ‘spin’ button while the reels are spinning to stop them more quickly. Toggle sound on/off via the ‘speaker’ button
Spectra Bonus Features
Stacked Wild Re-spins: If a spin yields 1+ Stacked Wilds on or adjacent to a payline, a Re-Spin is automatically triggered. During the Re-spin, the Stacked Wilds ‘nudge’ in a vertical direction toward the center of the reels giving the chance to achieve even more Wild Substitution wins. New Wilds that appear trigger an additional Re-spin.

Light Up the Screen with Neon
Thunderkick slots have continued to impress time and again with exciting, new concepts and innovations. Perhaps the fact that Spectra comes close on the heels of the company’s unique Babushkas video slot contributes to making Spectra seem a bit ordinary by comparison. It has several retro slot symbols, graphics that we’ve seen before, and tried-and-true Bonuses. It certainly cannot be said that this is a unique innovation which may disappoint fans of Thunderkick slots. That said, it possesses a solid slot design concept, graphics that won’t take long to load and a soundtrack that is mercifully mutable.
We took the demo version of Spectra for a test spin at Mr Green online casino. Over the course of 100 spins, this online slot produced 2.5 wins every 10 spins or so. Of those wins, 48% were profitable with the largest Win amounting to 6.5x the Total Bet (not including Re-spin wins). Wild Substitutions only accounted for a few of those wins. Stacked Wild Re-spins activated 5 times out of 100 spins. The largest Re-spin win amounted to 7.5x the Total Bet.
One of the many things we love about Thunderkick slots is that the company publishes info about hit rates on its webpage that is accessible to any player that wishes to have a look. Thunderkick shows that Spectra will produce a Big Win about every 100 spins, a Mega Win about every 535 spins, and an Ultra Win every 1470 spins.
