Spectrum is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot which is brought to you by Novomatic. Available to play on all devices from 50p to £100 per spin, the game is like a classic fruit machine with a modern twist. It benefits from a Reel Locking feature where reels lock together to display the same symbol.

Visually, it’s a classic fruit machine with a modern twist. With a black background, the symbols shine in the colours of the rainbow. It does look very good though with the symbols in neon style. They include playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9), bar, double and treble bars, cherries and spectrums. The spectrum is the highest value symbol giving you 40 times your stake for 5 on a payline. The wild substitutes for all symbols.

It benefits from a Reel Locking feature – each reel spin starts with 2 adjacent reels matching. During the spin, more adjacent reels may match displaying the same symbol. This means you can get multiple reels locking together to give you the same symbol and therefore winning combinations.

Spectrum is quite a simple slot really with no free spins feature. It’s all about the Reel Locking feature where reels lock together to give you the same symbol. I’ve managed to get all 5 reels locked together which resulted in the maximum 500 times stake win.

It’s not the best slot Novomatic has released but it looks fantastic, is fast paced and has potential to pay out nicely. Spectrum does remind me a lot of NetEnt’s Vegas Party though.
