As a television series that has a reputation which precedes iteself around the world, Star Trek, is worthy enough to be developed into a branded slot game. In 2009, the eleventh movie installment was released by Paramount Pictures. WagerWorks recently produced a Star Trek slot game based on the most recent movie.
The background of the game is set in the cockpit of the Enterprise space ship. There are a variety of symbols directly from the movie such as:
- Captain Kirk
- High value card symbols
- Star Trek logo
As the highest ranking officer on the ship, Captain Kirk provides the highest payout of 1,000 coins. The other members are regular symbols. The animations of these symbols not flashy, they simply consist of lights flashing and music from the movie. The Star Trek logo is representative of the wild symbol and appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 as substitutes for all icons with the exception of bonus symbols.
For the free spins bonus round, Kirk appropriately states, “I don’t believe in no-win scenarios.” Each free spin can be taken until the player hits and wins. The player begins with between three and six free spins offered at triple the payout. The Kirk bonus game features a special symbol of Kirk and Spock that substitutes for both the Kirk and Spock symbols. The Spock bonus game introduces Spock as the wild symbol. When Kirk and Spock appear on the same reel, payouts are doubled.
The Uhura bonus delivers an extra super scatter Uhura symbol of which players can hit eight of these on the reels with all eight awarding a payout of 250 coins. Finally, the Scotty bonus symbol grants players with 10 free spins. The first five spins are assigned a payout multiplier between 2x and 5x while the multiplier for the remaining five is doubled.
The Star Trek slot game can be found at all WagerWorks casinos with the largest being Virgin Casino. WagerWorks has managed to take an excellent series and transform it into an exciting slot game complete the look and feel of the Starship Enterprise.
