Event Horizon is a unique a fairly original slot machine (if you haven’t played NetEnt’s TwinSpin of course) game from BetSoft Gaming. This slot is certainly predictable when it comes to imagery, but the game does contain a host of one-of-a-kind features which does make it stand out. Played over 5 reels and 243 ways to win, it is one of BetSoft Gaming’s biggest titles, and can be found at casinos across the net.
Players will have the option of choosing the value of their coins, and the number of coins they wager per spin, though not per line. Understandably, the 243 pay lines in this slot cannot be altered. Players are going to find that they can wager anything from a floor of 50p per spin on this game, up to a top stake of £32.50 per spin.
Graphically, you will find Event Horizon a trip down memory lane, to the glory days of simple slot machine gaming. This is in stark contrast with its title, which sort of implies a space theme. Imagery on the reels include high playing card icons which offer standard wins from 3 coins up to 40 coins, cherries, as well as single, double, and triple bars. The best paying icons include the bells and sevens, which are worth between 30 coins and 1,250 coins when they appear in winning combinations on the reels. Players can win as much as 5,000 coins with this slot’s non-progressive jackpot, and they will need the “seven” symbols to appear on paylines for that to happen.
Although Event Horizon is a simple slot machine game, the title does feature wild symbols. These wilds appear as globe symbols. When these orb-like symbols appear on the reels, they can substitute themselves for all other symbols in the game. There is no exception to this rule, since the substitute icon is the only special symbol to appear in this slot.
Sync Reels feature
It is hardly a bonus round, but Event Horizon does contain one other special feature. It is known as the Sync Reels feature, and it is as close to a proper bonus as you are going to get. The is the most original aspect of this game.
Every single time the reels spin, two or more of them may sync up and display the same symbols on the reels. During this spin, synced reels could expand to cover 3, 4 or even all 5 of the reels in this slot. Naturally, the more reels you have synced, the more you are going to be able to win. Only adjacent reels can be synced, but this feature happens all of the time, so you are never very far away from a big win.
So, what do we think? Well, Event Horizon is certainly original, and it is popular. In regards to the latter, we can’t figure out why. Wins may be frequent, but exciting moments are few and far between in this simplistic but creative video slot.
That all being said, this is actually basically a clone of the NetEnt classic TwinSpin which is one of my personal all time favourites (yes, I like the boringly themed slots as you probably already know by now!). The return to player on Event Horizon is slightly lower than TwinSpin but I would say that this is a good slot to play if you are looking for a Betsoft slot to run down some wagering requirements on low stake levels. Bets of 0.25 and 0.50 would be all I would advise for this slot for those purposes.
