There are not many people who have contributed to the world we know today as Nikola Tesla did. If it hadn’t been for him, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy our favourite pastime activities – playing slot machines! That’s why we have decided to dedicate a whole blog post to the great scientist and pay tribute to his genius. Let’s learn more about the best video slots inspired by Nikola Tesla and electricity!
Brought to you by Yggdrasil and Rabcat in 2019, Nikola Tesla’s Incredible Machine is a 5-reel, 25-payline video slot. Inspired by Tesla’s work, the slot boasts impressive visuals with a steampunk feel to it. The music and sound effects contribute to a mysterious atmosphere of his laboratory where the reels are set. They are home to theme-related symbols such as stopwatches, welding goggles and capacitors. The great scientists himself acts as Wild and pays the top prize.
The game offers the Energy Burst feature triggered when 3 regular symbols of a kind appear on the central reel. Low-value symbols award 3 bonus spins while high-value ones grant 5 bonus spins during which you will benefit from one of the extras. They can be a random symbol turned into Wild, 3 randomly chosen reels showing the same sticky symbols and 2 or 3 randomly selected symbols replaced by sticky Wilds. You can also win up to 12 free spins during which the game pays both ways. What’s more, during free spins the Level system is in play with fixed Wild placed in the middle of the reel 3. When Level Up Scatter appears on the reels 1 or 5, the level increases up to 5 while new fixed Wilds are added to the reels.
Another title inspired by one of the biggest inventors in history comes from Nolimit City. It uses 5 reels and 20 paylines and features some skillfully designed visuals and sounds. The game takes you to Tesla’s laboratory with the reels populated by chargers, bulbs and plugs as well as playing card icons designed to look like conducting wire. The game features two Tesla Jolt Wilds with one of them appearing in the base game to trigger the Tesla Jolt feature. Once it is triggered, one of the symbols is randomly chosen and turned into Wild in all instances.
Tesla himself assumes the role of Scatter that can award 10, 15 or 20 free spins. During the feature, you can benefit from Charged Wilds and Time-Lapse Trigger that can add more Wilds to the reels and more free spins to your tally. Collect Wilds to fill the meter during free games and you can win big.
This video slot features another scientist dabbling with electricity. It is Dr Electro, a character created by Kalamba Games, who invites you to join him on 5 reels and benefit from 1,024 ways to win. Once again, you will visit a laboratory where some curious creatures gather to provide you with an electrifying gaming experience and big wins. The game comes packed with bonus features starting with Wild that will complete your winning combos.
Keep an eye on Expansion symbols as they can trigger 5 Hyper Spins during which the game offers up to 16,807 ways to win. There is also a regular free spins feature awarding 8 freebies with Expansion symbols revealing more symbol positions and awarding extra free spins. The Hyper Bonus feature allows you to buy up to 25 free spins at a fixed price while the Bonus Jackpots feature awards 2 jackpot prizes. To trigger one of the jackpots, you need to land Wild and Dr Electro symbols at the same time.
Another electrically charged slot in this list comes from Red Tiger Gaming. Played at 5 reels and 20 paylines, it pays both ways. Reactor boasts top-notch graphics and sounds. The reels are set within a reactor and populated by crystal and machine part icons. The latter make up the upper ends of the paytable. Wild is represented by the ball of electric energy that substitutes for all regular symbols.
Look out for the Battery symbol that activates respins with extras. Depending on the number of triggering symbols, you can play respins with random symbols transforming into ones of higher value, random Wilds added to the reels, 2×2 or 3×3 Mega Wild added to the reels and up to 10x multipliers applied to your payouts.
Last but not least, we will celebrate Tesla’s inventions with a good old fruit machine. The Red Rake Gaming take on the theme comes with an electrical twist. Electric Sevens takes you to a casino where cabinets are electrically charged. The action takes place at 5 reels and 30 paylines across which you need to match traditional symbols such as lucky sevens, cherries and bars to get paid. Besides regular lucky sevens, the game features electric sevens as well. They can transform regular sevens into the symbols of the same colour.
Another form sevens can appear in are so-called giant sevens. These massive symbols can cover 3×3 positions on the central reels thus helping you create more lucrative winnings combos. Wilds will complete your wins by replacing all symbols except for Bonus. When you land 3 Bonus Scatters anywhere in view, you will get 10 free spins. Within the feature, a row of sevens slides above the reels. When you match a seven with another seven on the reel below, it turns into Wild. If you match an electric seven with a seven sliding above the reels, it will make Wild expand vertically and horizontally.
