Quickspin presents a 5 reel and 10 fixed paylines slot Second Strike. This delicious fruit, bells, stars, lucky 7s and diamond symbols slot offers you the prospect of winning up to 10,000 coins per payline if you can land five sparkling diamonds on a payline!
Standard graphics and sounds
Let us be honest, none of these symbols are very original nor are they part of some exciting theme. The classic fruit slot has been around for a long time and while there are some variations, the basics are all the pretty much the same. The symbols are colourful and easy on the eyes and the background colour scheme is a mellow and reflective purple hue. The sound effects and music are standard making it difficult to differentiate the slot from similar slots to this point.
Second strike feature
The Second strike feature is the aforementioned variation and it is triggered after every payline win with 3, 4, or 5 of a kind. A coloured marker spins in a clockwise rotation highlighting the symbols that form a rectangular border wheel around the 5 reels. The marker slows down and eventually stops. 6, 8 or 10 symbols corresponding to the number of symbols that had originally triggered the feature are randomly placed on the border wheel and highlighted in yellow. Should the coloured marker stop on one of the symbols then you will be awarded those symbols, which are then copied down to the reel overwriting symbols other than the one that had originally triggered the feature to begin with. This could create new paylines and increases pre-existing ones.
Wild logo symbol
The game offers the standard wild symbol, which can appear on any space and substitute for any symbol.
The variance for Second Strike is closer to medium with pre-determined bet sizes ranging from €0.10 all the way up to €100. The developer lists the theoretical return to player (RTP) at 96.22%. For disclosure purposes, I must admit I generally find fruit theme slots to be monotonous and uninspiring but I must say two things in this game's favour. First, the potential of winning up to 10,000 coins is nothing to snicker at! Also, I did like the idea of the second strike feature and in practice did manage to trigger it every so often while playing. As far as fruit themed slots go this is one of the better ones and I suggest you give it a look if this type of slot wets your appetite.
