About Star Trek Slots
If you’re a fan of going boldly where no man has gone before, you may well have come across WMS’s excellent series of Star Trek-themed online slots.
While those games were based on the classic 1960s sci-fi TV show, complete with images and characters from the series, IGT’s tie-in covers the 2009 big-screen revamp that starred Chris Pine as Captain Kirk.
JJ Abrams’ update of Star Trek was a huge box office hit, and the atmosphere and theme of the film have been faithfully retained in the slot.
Luckily, the thrill of the Star Trek film has been retained on this slot. There’s background music from the Hollywood blockbuster, plus lots of nice sci-fi sound FX when you alter your bets and spin the reels.
The game is played over five reels with 30 paylines available. Coins are a little restrictive, with a $1 coin the lowest denomination available. However, with a maximum bet of $600 available, Star Trek is certainly a slot for the big players.
Four of the popular characters from the film are present on the reels, including Kirk, Spock, Scotty and Uhuru. 10-to-Ace icons in a Star Trek font make up the symbols.
The Star Trek icon is Wild and it substitutes for all regular icons in the game. It only appears on Reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, however.
There are four separate bonus features in the game, triggered by landing two BONUS USS Enterprise symbols on the reels plus a Kirk, Spock, Scotty or Uhuru symbol.
Kirk’s Bonus awards 3 to 6 free spins with a 3x multiplier attached. You can keep spinning until you stop winning, and there’s a maximum of 250 spins up for grabs. There’s an extra Wild included (KIRK/SPOCK) and it appears on the last four reels while substituting for Kirk and Spock only.
Spock’s Bonus, meanwhile, awards 10-15 free spins, while there are added Spock Wilds and Kirk 2x multipliers while you spin. As with Kirk’s Bonus, the reels change to feature symbols of Spock’s father and Uhuru & Spock.
Yet more free spins mayhem hits when you land the Uhuru Bonus. Here, you’ll win 6-12 free spins, while added Uhuru icons act as Scatters for bigger jackpots. Eight Uhuru Scatters awards a bonus jackpot worth 250x your total bet.
Finally, the Scotty Bonus starts off with 10 free spins with multipliers of 2x-5x. After five spins, the multiplier doubles to 4x-10x.
With four bonus features, Star Trek is a cracking game for fans of the film and decent slots alike. Free Spins-phobes will probably want something a little different to mix things up, but you can’t argue with some big bonus jackpots. Set phasers to stun and go where no slots player has gone before.
