Many of us spent our childhood playing our favourite arcade games, such as space Invaders and Galaxian, and now thanks to Thunderkick we have a slot game which has been made in their image, Spectra.  Those arcade games from years ago, compared to modern day games, seem quite outdated, but their popularity right now couldn't be higher, and that popularity is what Thunderkick have tried to tap into with this five-reel slot.  Spectra, as well as having five reels, also has thirty fixed paylines, meaning all thirty paylines will be active for all spins.

Our Verdict: Spectra is a very simple slot game, both in design and gameplay.  Despite a simple design, Spectra has some nice graphical touches.  The slot has a futuristic space look to the background and reels, but the sort futuristic look you would associate with a 1970's video game. The game also is bright and colourful with some neon lines and the soundtrack and sound effects feel appropriate to the look of the slot.  The slot also has a fun little bonus feature, wild re-spin, which if triggered can lead to some really good prizes for you.

How to Play: Spectra is a five-reel slot game, it has four rows and has a fixed thirty payline structure.  This fixed payline structure means they all will be active for every spin, meaning you will need to simply select your stake before starting.  Players will be able to bet between 10p and £100 per spin.  Once selected you will start to spin the reels and to win you will simply need to land a combination of three symbols on a payline.  The value of the payout you will get for landing that combination will depend on the value of the symbol, a number of symbols which landed in and stake per line.

Wild Symbol: On Spectra there is just one special symbol which is the wild symbol, the symbol with multi-coloured "W" on it.  The symbol is special as it has the ability to substitute for all other symbols on the reels including the bars, red sevens, bells, and clovers.  The wild symbol is also stacked on the reels, leading to more opportunity for it to create winning combinations.  The wild symbol can also produce its own winning combination if three or more of the wild symbol land on a single payline.  If you land the full five "W" symbols, you will win the top prize that is on offer on Spectra.

Wild Respin: There is only one bonus feature on Spectra, and that is the Wild Re-Spin feature.  This feature occurs every time you land a wild "W" on the reels, or next to payline just off the reels.  After the win and subsequent payout the wild stack will move one place towards the middle row and you will be awarded a free spin. For this free spin, the wild symbols will be frozen in place.  This will continue until the wilds reach the centre row and the free spins, or re-spins will end.
