Twin $pin is in some ways a game with little to offer, while in other areas it does an excellent job at giving the player something unique. In the end, the features are the ones that are probably going to win this battle for the game, and the theme is the one that will lose it. Even with the classic pub slot theme that was selected though, the quality is higher than in the vast majority of games that usually choose these symbols. The setup is somewhat unusual for Net Entertainment, which doesn’t offer a lot of games with ways to win. There are 243 of those here, on the regular setup for this kind of number, with 5x3 reels. The features consist of the twin reels which give the game its name, and regular wild symbols. A jackpot of $5,000 is advertised in the game.
Because the game comes with ways to win, not classic lines, if you would need to cover every single one with its own coin you would need to work in multiples of 243, especially since you can’t reduce the number. Developers tend to use a fixed number of coins instead, usually 25 or 30, pretending that it’s a regular game with pay lines. That’s what Net End is doing here as well, and so you have 25 lines to cover with your bets, which can consist of 1 to 10 coins. With those coins getting values between $0.01 and $0.50, the maximum line bet is $5, and so you can spend at most $125 for each round. The smallest wager per spin can be set to $0.25.
For the theme, we have a classic look, but on the modern layout of a video slot. You’re getting an abstract image for the background, colored in blue and purple, while the black reels have a combination of poker icons and classics. The Wild Logo is mentioned first on the paytable, followed by the image of the Diamond, of Red 7s, a Bar Logo, a Golden Bell and Cherries. That’s it for the classic pub icons, as the other six present on the reels are the Royals, the poker cards that you can see in most slots designed these days. There are good and bad things about the theme and the design of Twin $pin. The theme is obviously boring and lacks any kind of imagination. You do see that imagination elsewhere in the game though, so they did try to make the game fun. The choice of symbols is a problem as well, since they could’ve easily went with an all classic collection of images for them, they didn’t need to have poker cards present. The design quality is good, and I would’ve expected nothing less from Net Ent.
This being a slot which has ways to win, it’s worth noting how combinations will form, since you don’t have the predetermined positions of the pay lines. Instead, the game requires that matching symbols appear on adjacent reels, which start from the 1st reel and go towards the 5th one. You need at least three regular symbols on the first three reels, in order to get paid, and with the same symbols also on reels 4 and 5 the payouts will become even higher. The expected feature in any game these days is the wild, and Twin $pin does have it. It’s going to come as a simple Wild Logo, and it will be used by the game as part of new winning combinations. A combo can be formed with both regular matching symbols and wilds in it. The truly fun part in this game, and the one that gives it its name, is the Twin Reel Feature. Every single spin that you pay for in this game, will have two reels that are adjacent and which are twins, showing you the same symbols. As you spin the reels, you will have at least two matching symbols on adjacent positions, and maybe even more since the feature can expand. You can have triple, quadruple or even quintuple reels with the same symbols. You could end up with hundreds of paying combinations basically, if luck is truly on your side.
A single regular combination will pay as much as 1,000x, that amount coming from the Diamond symbol. Its highest value is $5,000. Obviously, the Twin Reels have the potential of delivering more than one top jackpot combo at a time, so the average RTP ends up being quite high for the game, even though it might seem simple if you discount the Twin Reels. The RTP is going to be at 96.60% in the long run.
Twin $pin has the right quality of design, a good average RTP and a unique feature that I haven’t seen other developers use before. You get some good reasons why you should try it out, as you can see.
