It’s as if they are the companies’ big sign-offs for the year, the big hurrah before 2016. For Quickspin, their celebration comes in the form of Second Strike.

Although the game looks deceivingly simple, it packs a mighty punch within its reels. You can win up to 1,204 times your wager in a single spin. The game also triggers many small wins to keep you going, ranging from 5 to 20x your wager. You’ll be fed many little doses of euphoria throughout your entire gaming session. Then, out of the blue, you’ll be hit with a 40x or 60x win!
Second Strike has only one feature in its game. There are no free spins, bonus rounds, mini-games or fancy Wild symbols either! All of your attention will be directed to THE “Second Strike” feature. Here is how it goes.
The feature occurs after every winning combination that you score. After every win, the outer wheel of symbols will light up with miniature fruit symbols. A marker will then spin around the reel (like a jackpot wheel of some sort). If the marker stops on the lit-up symbols, you’ll get 6 to 10 extra symbols on the reels. You now have a second chance at scoring winning combinations on the reels. With so many extra symbols, the number of winning combinations is simply remarkable!
The number of extra symbols around the reels are determined by the length of the line win. Hit three of a kind and you’ll get six extra symbols; hit four matching symbols and you’ll get eight extra. Five matching symbols maxes out the reels and you’ll trigger an epic win.
For every 5-of-a-kind win, you have a chance of catching a screen full of the same symbols, completing over 10 paylines. This creates huge winnings in the order of 100 times your wager! The screen lights up, the crowd cheers and you take home all that money! There is your win, on your second strike.
Second Strike would be the sort of game you play as you wind down for the day. There’s chilled-out lounge music playing in the background and jewel-toned colours that are easy on the eye. The symbols are classic fruit symbols as well, which lend to that light mood.
As you smoke that cigar and hit spin on your phone, you start to lean back and slouch lower in your chair. And then suddenly, there’s that 100x win and you’re sitting straight up in your seat! The game celebrates your win with this most satisfying lights and explosion business!
It’s rare to find any game that dares to pack only a single feature within its reels. “Boring!” the reviews would read. The recent Family Guy slot packed something like 14 bonus features into a single game. Quickspin went in the other direction and did the unimaginable. They were confident that this “Second Strike” feature is fun and profitable enough to hold the show on its own.
Quickspin pulled off this one-trick-pony slot with Twin Spin – in this all-time favourite, the reels connect to give identical reels. The reels will clone themselves and practically give away winning combinations with every spin. Twin Spin has cemented its position as everybody’s favourite slot game, despite its old age. Second Strike is well on its way.
Just one simple feature in Second Strike slot can capture your attention for more than five minutes. For this stunt, Quickspin has become the most innovative game developer in my books. The Second Strike video slot is simply mind-blowing. This has to be one of the best ways to end an amazing year.
