Second Strike Overview
Second Strike in UK slot by QuickSpin has an old-fashioned touch, and the theme is fruity. Like most old school games, the story is quite simple and straightforward. The background also maintains simplicity with an entire screen of purple and a few dashing red and gold patches. A player looking for a game with minimal litter will get hooked real fast.
There is a 5×3 grid with 10 fixed pay lines. Cherries, watermelon, plums, and grapes form low-paying signs. They are quite easy to spot on the casino reels and that perhaps makes up for their meagre rewards. Meanwhile, diamonds, stars, sevens, and bells are quite hard to come by for they are the high-paying icons. As it happens in many casinos online, here the golden wild replaces other symbols creating extra winning combinations across the reels. However, the frenzy sets in when the second-strike feature activates. The marker on the outer wheel lights up after every win, and that commences spinning. Identical symbols get added to the reels when winning symbols land. The greater the combination, the more the identical icons that appear.
While the game has 100 jackpots, a scatter is sadly absent. Free spins too are conspicuously missing. That said, the single bonus round available in conjunction with a good RTP facilitates players’ chances to get a good return on money wagered.
