Sparks Slot game is a 5-reel video slot from NetEnt, with 3 rows and 20 pay lines. With a beautiful, electric current inspired design and an equally arresting musical score, Sparks tops our list of the most audio-visually pleasing slot we’ve played this year.
Sparks Slot Background
The graphics of Sparks Slots are crystal clear and displayed in beautiful HD. It is the clarity that brings out the striking patterns and colours on the screen. However, it is also fair to say that the slot looks a bit like a lava lamp, or one of those glass balls that you touch and the static electrical lightening bolts follow your fingers.
Apart from its design nous, Sparks also has plenty of features to commend it. Players can choose bet levels between 1 and 10 as well as coin values from 0.01 to 2.00.
Operators can set their own levels for minimum and maximum bet values. Therefore, it may differ from casino to casino. However, when we tried it, you could bet anywhere from €0.20 to €400.
Players can choose to play in Win One Way mode, or Win Both Ways mode. In the latter mode, winnings pay out right to left as well as left to right. When choosing between the two modes in Sparks, it may surprise players to know that the decision will affect the RTP of the slot. For Win One Way mode, the RTP is 96.56%, whereas for Win Both Ways mode, the RTP is 96.54%. Therefore, even though the pay outs may be higher on Win Both Ways mode, the overall return compared to your stakes will tend to be more favourable if you play in Win One Way mode.
The game also has Wild substitutions as well as expanding cloning wilds. These, as you can imagine, are as thrilling as they are complicated. So more on those now.

Special Bonus Features
The Expanding Cloning Wild is Sparks Slot’s most notable feature. It may sound like some forest dwelling, self-reproducing army of troglodytes, but these you’ll want to be seeing.
The expanding wilds can first appear on either the second reel or the fourth reel and substitute for all symbols. Once the wilds have appeared on these, they can either stay exactly the same, expand up and down the reels, or spread outwards in both directions.
The expanding wilds also clone their neighbouring symbols on the left and copy them onto the reel to the right. This can mould some serious winning bet lines!
