Set in deep space, Swedish operator NetEnt’s Big Bang Slot is a five-reel slot with three rows, 25 Paylines and a vibrant colour palette. Travel to the furthest corners of the universe in this classic game, initially launched in early 2014, that’s all about progressive multipliers.
Its stunning graphics may remind you of the popular Starburst, from the same operator.
How to play
Spin away from 0.25 to a relatively modest maximum of 20 a spin. The standard controls are here, including Max Bet, Quick Spin and Autoplay. Equally, as players have come to expect, it works just as well on mobile (iOS and Android) as it does on desktop.
The usual lesser-paying playing-card values A through 10 join five gorgeously detailed planet symbols on the reels, in red, gold, green, purple and blue, of which the red planet is your biggest payer. (Wins pay out from the reel furthest left.)
Special features in Big Bang Slot
The game has a Wild, with that word emblazoned on the symbol, against a blazing sun. It does its usual thing of standing in for regular icons and appears on any of the slot’s five reels – you won’t find any Scatter symbols, however.
Big Bang Slot Bonus features
Unfortunately, this game doesn’t have a free spins round. However, it does offer the following main perk:
This nice little earner (displayed to the left of your screen for you to keep tabs on progress) boosts Payline wins by a factor of at least 1x – up to a hefty 32x maximum. If you land a winning combo on any particular spin, the meter goes up to the next-highest multiplier value, steadily increasing your chances of tidy winnings.
The multipliers go from 2x to 4x, 6x, 8x and 16x. So to get that x32 multiplier, you’ll need to land six wins consecutively. (Subsequent wins also have a 32x boost slapped on them.) But follow up with no winning combo and the meter sinks back to 1x.
The bigger wins come from landing four or five of a kind, at least at the lower level of the multiplier meter. Some have said they found it hard to progress beyond the 4x level. Nonetheless, this game’s excitement lies in how far up the multiplier ladder you manage to climb!
While Big Bang Slot doesn’t feature a progressive jackpot, you can win up to 268,032 coins.
Return to Player
Variance in Big Bang Slot is on the medium-to-high side, so you may find lengthy gaps between the biggest wins, although you have a 50% chance of a win on every spin, and, therefore a 50% chance of working your way up that multiplier ladder. Meanwhile, RTP or Return to Player is 96%.
You’re bound to love the stunning design of this slot. You’re also in with a good chance of some out-of-this-world wins! Big Bang Slot is also quite a simple slot to play, and is ideally suited to the novice or more casual player. It certainly won’t be for you if you insist on a free spins round or are a committed high roller.
