Not to be confused with the hit comedy series ‘The Big Bang Theory’, the Big Bang video slot game by NetEnt is a space-themed slots game. It’s a 5-reel, 3-row, and 25-payline kind of game with an identifiable Wild because it has the word written right on it.
It’s flashy because it involves planets, stars, galaxies, nebulas, and every other heavenly body of different colors and sizes. It even comes with a free version you can try out for yourself.
In terms of gameplay, you have your usual matching game where you’re supposed to get 3-of-a-kind or more (as well as 5-of-a-kind only on certain symbols) in order to win prizes. The game is over when your winnings are depleted or if you lose interest altogether.
You can control your bet level, coin size, and when you can spin. You can also pick Autoplay mode to allow the reels to spin on their own for a set amount of spins. The Max Bet plays the game with the highest wager possible, with the maximum 4 coins per line on all lines at the maximum size of 0.5 per coin.
Although the jackpot isn’t progressive, the game has a unique Multiplier Meter that increases payline wins by 1x to 32x. Every spin that results in a winning combo is increased by the meter to the next value, thus your wins are constantly raised.
The game also has a Wild symbol (as mentioned above) that substitutes all the symbols and helps serve as the filler icon that completes combos. However, the game lacks Scatters and, as a consequence, Free Spins that are usually activated by Scatters.
The game doesn’t have Free Spins. This means in paid games with stakes, every spin is paid for and you’re limited to the number of coins you bet and the number of coins that will survive after every losing spin.
It also has a really small jackpot of 1,000 coins. It’s a more accessible jackpot but players who are used to getting bigger will probably opt out of this game. However, the real value of the game comes from its Multiplier Meter.
The graphics and presentation of the game is superb as well. It even has an excellent soundtrack and what bonuses it does have makes it worthwhile to play.
Space is supposed to give you a humbling feeling as though you’re a microscopic speck of dust in the cosmos in light of how small our solar system or galaxy is in this vast and ever-expanding universe. The ever-expanding multipliers add to that awe-inspiring theme.
The non-progressive jackpot of 1,000 coins does not. In fairness to the game, it promises that you can win up to 268,032 coins if you keep playing and winning with the Multiplier Meter system. However, the lack of Free Spins, Progressive Jackpot, and Scatters make it inferior to many other slots out there.
