Second Strike Gameplay and Bonus Features
The main thing about this game is the Second Strike feature, which gets triggered on any symbol line win. There's an outer wheel that consists of 52 different positions populated by game symbols, and when you land a win that involves some symbol, that symbol will light up on the wheel. The marker will start spinning, and if it lands on the correct position, more symbols will be added to the reels. If you had a three-of-a-kind win you'll get 6 extra symbols, if you had a four-of-a-kind win you'll get 8 extra symbols, and finally if you had a five-of-a-kind win you'll get 10 extra symbols, which means you'll have all 15 positions on the reels populated by the same symbol and will therefore get a full board win.
Diamond is the most valuable symbol as it pays a whopping prize of 100x your bet, so the maximum possible win on a single spin in this game is 1000x your bet. Seven, Star and Bell are the medium value symbols and they can pay 20x, 15x and 10x respectively. The four fruit symbols – Watermelon, Grapes, Plum and Cherry – aren't worth much and they can pay 4x at best. There is also a non-paying Wild symbol that can help a lot.
With this kind of paytable and a very generous Diamond symbol, as well as the game mechanics that can help you land that full board win whenever you land five-of-a-kind, Second Strike is a great game in which you can win big. Variance is, of course, a bit high, but the potential to win big is here and that's uncharacteristical for Quickspin. So if you want invest real money and play a Quickspin slot in which you can win big, this would be the one. Actually, this would probably be a slot game in which it's the easiest to get a full board win. Simply land five-of-a-kind and have a marker land on one of the highlighted positions, and you got a board full of the same symbol.
It gets even easier if you happen to land more than one winning combination on the spin, as then all the symbols will light up on the outer wheel, and your chances of getting extra symbols double. Whenever you get extra symbols, they will be placed on your board randomly.
