Evolution Slot Machine
Evolution is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot game from the talented team at Net Entertainment. Unusually, the reels spin from the bottom of the screen rather than from the top, which makes for a unique playing experience. The game features some rather interesting creatures as the symbols and they come complete with their own scientific names. The creatures include flying rodents, mice with manes, deep-sea serpents and new age dinosaurs.
The playing card symbols are suspended in jellyfish-type organisms which are as usual the lower values in the game. All the symbols float in a dark, mysterious liquid that could be an ocean or lake. Surprisingly calming and peaceful music plays in the background as you spin the reels and enjoy this interesting game.

Bonus Rounds and Payouts
The Free Spins Round in Evolution is activated by spinning in 3 or more Free Spins symbols. The Free Spins Round takes place in a separate setting that has a terrestrial quality as opposed to an aquatic one. The low value creatures in the game will 'evolve' into higher value symbols each time a winning spin is spun during the Free Spins. The music, in addition, changes to a more rhythmic beat to add to the excitement of your free spins! Landing 3 FS symbols awards you with 10 free spins, 4 symbols grants you 15 and 5 symbols will give you 20 free spins to play with. Varying multipliers are also added to the free spins. At the end of the round a meteor will soar onto screen and send your reels sinking back into the ocean and back into the base game.
The highest value symbol in the game is the Dracanius Rex (or the flying rodent) and awards you with up to 500x your bet for 5 of a kind. The other 'creatures' are also high value symbols, with the playing card jellyfishes being the low values.
Additional Game Features
There is, as with most online slot games, a Wild Symbol which is clearly labeled. This symbol appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and the symbol can substitute for any of the standard symbols in the game except for the Free Spins symbol. The Wild assists in your wins and is active during the free spins round.
Albus Slugus, Bestla Dentum, Basilisk Hairicus, Basilisk Pluma, Draconius Rex, 10, J, Q, K, A .
The Wild in the game is clearly labeled as 'WILD' and replaces all the other symbols except for the Free Spins symbol.
The Scatter symbol is the symbol that is marked as Free Spins and it initiates the Free Spins Round.
NetEnt shows off just how good they are at putting together unique and creative games in this evolutionary slot. The theme is certainly different and should attract a wide variety of players to the game. The graphics, as usual for NetEnt, are done excellently and have a realistic 3-D quality. Each symbol has been lovingly designed and each creature seems to have its own personality.
The look and feel of this game is what really gives it an edge over other slots but the Free Spins and Multipliers are not to be forgotten about. There is loads of winning potential in this game (hence the high RTP of over 96%). Sit back, enjoy and let Evolution take place!
