NetEnt is blasting players into space once again with the sequel to its Space Wars title in its latest slot, Space Wars 2 Powerpoints.
Space Wars 2 Powerpoints is a 6×6, avalanche slot that incorporates the company’s Powerpoints mechanic.
Space Wars 2 Powerpoints include a Free Spins Powerpoints mode, along with a traditional version of the round, an Avalanche, column/row blaster, zapper, bomb and multiplier wilds.
During the game, a matching win awards the Powerpoiints. In both the mian game and free spins mode, Powerpoints get added to the collect metre. As the player fills this up, they will move up the level, increasing the multiplier in the process.
Moreover, if 1,000 Powerpoints are collected, the player triggers the free spins mode. The number of spins awarded will depend on the amount of Powerpoints awarded in the main game. Once this round commences, the number of rows in the round will expand to eight.
In addition to the above, the title comes with a column or row blaster function. If a player achieves a four-symbol horizontal match, in both the base and free spins game, it awards a column blaster symbol.
This will remove all symbols, except for wilds and feature symbols. Furthermore, Powerpoints will be added to the metre.
Alternatively, if four-matching symbols land vertically, the row blaster symbol is awarded. The process is similar to the above but, instead of horizontal, the symbols removed will be removed vertically.
Included in the title is the zapper, which is revealed when five or six matching symbols appear. The zappers remove a number of symbol types, depending on how many land.
A bomb can also appear on the grid when a winning cluster of vertical and horizontal matches. In the bomb feature, all symbols, except for wilds and feature symbols, that are around the bomb are removed from the reels and Powerpoints are added to the metre.
In addition, a three symbol match will award a wild symbol that appears in place of one of the removed symbols. If the multiplier wild, which can go as high as x25, becomes part of a match, it will multiply the Powerpoints awarded.
