The publisher of slot machines, table games and video poker machines Nucleus Gaming introduced us recently to its latest slot machine called Spin to Ride.
Honestly, the result is rather pleasant visually and the game play of the machine has nothing to envy to the greatest hits of recent years. With a theme dedicated to the world of American bikers, the video slot takes us to the entrance of a bar at night, while a biker stands proudly on his bike, closely following the successive spins, all By attending to his occupations during various animations.
The Spin to Ride slot machine and its look
If you have always felt that you are “born to ride“ and the passion of the slot machines animates you, then the video slot Spin to Ride should really please you. On the graphics and visual side, we face a five-row machine structure on three rows.
The reels contain symbols with the effigies of the main character, the aspirant Pete; The same biker that one finds in front of the rollers on his bike, as well as a third to the skull shaved and their bike pounder named Hell-on-wheels Helen. In addition to these characters, there are symbols of dart games, bottles of whiskey, billiard balls, or wallets, Zippo or motorcycle wheel.
Overall, the rendering is very nice on this slot machine. The graphics are beautiful, the atmosphere that escapes the machine reflects well the universe of American bikers. However, we will see in the last point of this review that there is too much resemblance between the work of the publishers of Nucleus Gaming and that of the workshops of the publishers of Betsoft, which we are very embarrassed. For now, we will simply say that the Spin to Ride slot machine is a copy almost consistent with its elder Betsoft Slots Angels.
The video slot Spin to Ride offers 30 pay lines from left to right. One of the recurring game functions is the re-spin offered on the third roller as soon as a gain is lifted. After a gain, the central roller is rebooted free of charge. At each re-spin, a gain multiplier increases to peak at times 5.
In a second step, by accumulating 3 figures of the aspirant Pete on the reels 1, 2, 4 and 5, you can activate the game mode of free spins. During the free spins, the central roller Turn into Wild Full to promote your chances of paying combinations, while all your gang joins you to cheer you up!
The face symbol of Hell-on-wheels Helen gives you access to a click and win bonus game. Cumulate them on rolls 1, 2 and 5 and then choose one to discover an immediate gain.
The icing on the cake? By displaying 5 successive symbols of Pete aspirant on pay line 1, you will win the progressive jackpot of this video slot.
Finally, another bonus game is offered if you combine 3 face from biker to shaved head. Then you will have to determine which of three bikers will win a street race.
We really liked this creation of Nucleus Gaming. What we dislike very much, however, are the amazing and very similar resemblances to slot machines from Betsoft editors.
To give you an idea, just compare the presentation pages of these two game editors. In this case, about the Slots Angels slot machines from Betsoft and Spin to Ride from Nucleus, themes, characters, symbols, game functions and up to the number of pay lines are similar…
We do not know what to think about it. It is quite surprising in the e-gaming industry to see such similarities. We will try to find out more soon…
