It’s every gaming-adult’s dream come true. Tetris Super Jackpots is the latest online slots release by gaming developing giant WMS Gaming and its theme is closely based on the absolute classic that was released back in 1984. The game? None other than Tetris, of course.
243 Paylines, 5 reels and 3 rows make up Tetris Super Jackpots and the game functions much in the same way as its predecessor. Card values and tetronimoes (Tetris + Dominoes) appear on the game’s reels. The tetronimoes are representative of the four symbols of the original game.
A really nice touch is that the I-block awards the biggest payout. Anyone who has ever played Tetris will testify to the fact that no excitement matches that of seeing the I-block appear in the “next tile up” section of the original game.
A land-based casino version of Tetris was released earlier this year, and Tetris Super Jackpots is based on that release.
What would any slot game be without that special feature that can be triggered at random, for that extra measure of excitement? Tetris Super Jackpots incorporates the Tetronimo feature as its special slot feature. The feature is triggered at random during the base game. When this delightful event happens, one or two tetronimoes will fall onto the reels or will come to a stand-still just above the slot’s reels.
Symbols covered by a tetronimo on the reels will be morphed into one of the existing symbols of the game, creating a match. In the event that the tetronimo lands just above the reels, an extra row of symbols will be created. This, of course, increases the player’s chances of winning substantially.
Up to four additional rows can be created in this way.
Tetris Super Jackpots may not include a wild symbol, which is usually the key to unlocking major wins. It does, however, include a scatter symbol in the way of the Tetris logo. Whenever three scatter Tetris logo symbols land on the reels, the games free spins feature will kick into action.
The reel set expands to either five or eight rows when the free spins feature is activated. An extra bonus round is triggered in the event of a couple of Tetris watermark symbols being activated during the free spins feature.
Two rows of Tetris watermark symbols are required for this bonus event to happen.
Best of all, the game includes not one, but two progressive jackpots that can be won. This certainly puts the super into jackpot.
