Flash Velocity Slot Game
The Flash is a DC comics superhero who first appeared in 1956. Barry Allen, a police scientist, became the Flash when he gained his super powers when a bolt of lightning shattered a case full of chemicals and spilled all over him. Joining the Flash on the reels are enemies Captain Cold, Mirror Master and Gorilla Grodd, while the Flash symbol plays a very prominent part in this real money slot. For 10 extra credits you can activate the bonus bet, which unlocks the ‘Rogues Feature’ where you’ll enjoy free spins with many added extras.
How to Win on Flash Velocity
As you might expect, The Flash himself is the most important symbol on the reels. Firstly, he acts as the wild symbol, substituting for every other symbol apart from the bonus and the scatter, ensuring many additional wins. Any wins where the wild symbol is used will be multiplied by 3x. He is also the highest paying symbol on the slot, worth an eye catching 10,000 coins for landing the maximum five in a row.
Next on the pay table are the Flash’s enemies in Captain Cold, the Mirror Master and Gorilla Grodd, each of these paying 250 coins for a full house of 5, while a clock, Flash’s fast moving legs and a golden Flash symbol pay 150 coins. The standard symbols are completed by the playing cards J, Q, K and A. All win combinations at the game pay from left to right.
During play, the Flash may appear at any time and add ‘Speedster Wilds’ as he zooms across the reels. This will turn a random number of symbols wild and then the reels will be re-evaluated for any new wins that come your way.
This Amaya designed slot has a ‘Flash’ scatter symbol which pays out when you land two or more across any of the reels. You’ll win 2x your total stake for landing two scatters, while 3, 4 or 5 scatters see you win 5x, 15x and 100x your total stake respectively. If you have the additional bonus bet activated, three or more of these scatters will also see you gain entry into the bonus round.
Flash Velocity Slot Bonus Games
The bonus round sees you enter a free spins feature where you’ll have 12 spins, while all wins using the Flash wild will be subject to a 10x multiplier. Before you start you’ll have to choose from between 3 enemy based options.
Captain Cold – If a Flash wild appears on the reels, Captain Cold may freeze the reel. This will turn it into an expanding wild for 1 respin.
Mirror Master – After any of the free games, the Mirror Master might take you back in time and replay up your last four spins.
Gorilla Grood – Grood will jump in front of the reels and place a single wild in a random position on the reels, giving a much greater chance of a winning spin.
Design and Setup
This game is set against the backdrop of a city scene, where chaos reigns, as smoke is pouring out of the top of high rise buildings and rubble is scattered across the streets. The symbols on the reels are based upon the comic book representation of the Flash as opposed to the TV series, adding a nice mix of color to the game, even if the symbols are a little basic at times. However the added animation of the winning symbols does really add to the game. The accompanying sound seems a little basic too at first, but the bonus round and winning sound effects are excellent.
Like the majority of online games, The Flash Velocity slot has 5 reels, although each of the reels has 4 symbols as opposed to the more usual three. Due to the slightly oversized reels, you’ll find a total of 50 pay lines at the game, although you can choose to play any number between 1 and 50. To add the additional bonus bet, you have to play all 50 lines and each spin will cost 60 credits. The coin value per credit ranges from just 1c all the way through to $20. The slot has an auto play option where you can set the number of spins manually or use the ‘advanced’ option to set rules for the auto spins.
If you take away the ‘bonus bet’ option, this game isn’t one that will really excite, so I’d certainly recommend that you do activate it. The feature makes the game and each of the three choices makes this bonus round play very differently, making it a feature that you’ll want to land again and again.
