Does anyone remember the Atomic Age? Well, there won’t be so many people left today who can recall it, as it’s a period that occurred following the detonation of the first nuclear weapon, known as The Gadget. This took place during World War II – more specifically, July of 1945. This led to many people believing that an atomic age was upon us, and popular culture really took this to heart, with multiple books and films being created surrounding such during the following decades.
This online slot game from Rival Gaming also utilises that idea, bringing a very retro feel to the reels. Having been created back in 2012 it’s one of those games that doesn’t have the greatest graphics, but that doesn’t take away from the overall entertainment value. Upon the reels you’ll find symbols that start with a plate of blancmange, a strawberry sundae and a bottle of orangeade. Then comes a retro record player, a vintage television set and a satellite. Atomic Age’s highest paying symbols are the space rocket and the image of an atom.
Playing this Rival slot will provide you with a layout that consists of five reels and three rows in total. Alongside this, 15 pay lines have been added to the game, but you can adjust them if you wish to bet on fewer. Speaking of your bet, you can customise this as you see fit, with the opportunity to choose a coin value between 1p and £1 being the first course of action. Then, simply select how many coins you want in action per line between one and five, and you’ve got a maximum bet possibility of £75 per spin.
When you see the symbol of a UFO coming into view, you’ll know that this is the wild addition to Atomic Age because the word is written on it. This one can stand in for all other standard symbols, with the exception of the scatter symbols.
The wild can also form wins consisting solely of itself, so if you manage to spin five of them into action on a pay line, your bet will be multiplied by 7,500x.
There are two separate scatter symbols available on the reels of Atomic Age; these are the vintage cash register and the pink Cadillac. Scatters are able to show up in any position and still provide you with a reward for doing so. Five of either of these appearing in any location on the reels will multiply your bet by 50x over. Yet, both of them will also activate their own separate special feature rounds, too.
You need to spin three or more of the cash register scatter into view anywhere to activate the Cash Register Bonus function. In the same vein, if you spin three or more of the pink Cadillac scatter into view, then the Drive In Bonus round begins. From both of these, you can nicely boost your win balance with a small side game.
Atomic Age has quite the intriguing theme behind it, and it’s not one that many other developers have made use of, even after all of this time, so it feels unique. That’s what helps it to stand out amongst Rival’s other offerings. With the inclusion of two special bonus rounds and a wild symbol to benefit from, the entertainment value is truly enhanced. Of course, it would also benefit from having updated graphics, but this is all down to when the slot was created.
