Sparks is a modern, colourful slot, developed by NetEnt. It has 5 reels and 20 paylines, with the option to play them both ways, and bets start from just 20p a spin. Set in some kind of alternate galaxy, these sparks bring more than just colour to the reels, and their value varies depending on how you play. The Sparks slot also features some very special expanding cloning wilds. Read on to find out more!
Step into a world beyond ours and experience the sparks of energy in their cute little shapes, resembling those that you could make with a sparkler. Your game is accompanied by some relaxing beats. Get ready to experience a wild takeover when the expanding cloning wilds enter the reels.
Two-way paylines are quite a novelty in slot games. If you enjoyed them in Fisticuffs, you'd like them here, too.
Let’s get those sparks sparkling!
Set Your Stake
First of all, you need to decide how you would like to play the 20 paylines. The amount it costs to play them, either way, remains the same. With both-way play, there may be more opportunities to land winning combinations, but the potential wins are greater if you play it one-way. It is completely up to you, and if you decide to switch after a few spins, just hit the switch button and they will be swapped.
Once you have decided on the paylines, you can then choose how much you want to stake. All paylines are in play, so remember that the coin value you choose will be multiplied by 20 create your coin bet. Minimum value is 1p per line, increasing up to a maximum of 20p.
You can also increase the level of the bet by adding extra weight to each payline. Automatically set to 1, the bet level can be increased up to a maximum of 10, and whichever value you choose here, it will be multiplied by the coin bet to create the total bet. Any wins will be multiplied by the bet level.
Value in the Sparks
Depending on which way you choose to play the paylines, the potential prizes will be different. The payouts for any valid wins when playing one way are double those of if playing both ways. You can check the official amounts on the information tab in the game, but we have listed the order of value of the symbols.
The most valuable is the red star-shaped spark, followed by the orange one shaped like a butterfly. The green, purple and blue symbols are next in value. For both-way play, top prizes across the high-value symbols vary between 100 and 200 times the line bet, and for single-way play, between 200 and 400 times.
Lower-value symbols in the Sparks slot take the form of card symbols from Ace to 10, each in a different colour and with a spark effect. Again, the value changes in line with the way you play, but prize breakdowns can be found on the info tab.
As well as the attractive and dynamic standard play, there are two bonus features in the Sparks slot, one of which is essentially a turbo-charged version of another.
The orange ‘W’ upon a glowing icy-blue background is this game’s wild symbol and can appear anywhere on the reels.
Wilds can substitute for any of the standard symbols in play, helping you to create winning combinations across your paylines.
As well as the wilds assisting in the creation of winning lines, you can also win by wilds alone. Landing three or more of them across a payline can award you wins which are multiplied by your line bet. This can be a maximum of either 200 or 400 times, again, depending on how you play.
Exploding Cloning Wild
Now for the Sparks slot’s extra-special symbol.
A red ‘W’ on a fiery orange background is an exploding cloning wild. These symbols can appear on reels 2 and 4 only, and substitute for other standard symbols.
When an Exploding Cloning Wild lands, it can either stay the same, or expand up, down or cover the entire reel.
Additionally, the symbols to the left of the wild reel will be cloned onto the reel to the right-hand side. If there are wilds on both reels 2 and 4, the first set of symbols will be cloned again.
This means that there is potential for a pretty-much guaranteed win of at least 3-symbols.

Gameplay From A Different Galaxy
At first, it may be the design of the game which draws you in. The more you find out about the game, the better it sounds, right? The choice to play paylines in both directions, and the mega wild feature, there is lots to be excited about.
The Sparks slot is another brilliant production from NetEnt with top quality graphics. Converting what could have been a basic game into something unique and special is of huge value in a competitive gaming atmosphere!
Return to Player (RTP) of this game is a healthy 96.54%.
