Star Trek – Against All Odds
Star Trek – Against All Odds Slots
I enjoyed the original IGT Star Trek slot a lot; the latest game – Against all Odds – simply blows that one away. This is better in terms of graphics, game play and the bonus rounds are amazing too. If I had not played the ‘old’ version first it would have felt extremely tame by comparison. Against all Odds is themed on the movie of the same name, and does focus on the new and younger crew.
This is a 720-ways MultiWay Xtra game. This involved a diamond shape on the reels, with 3, 4, 5, 4 and 3 rows across the screen. This system also awards wins from right to left, with any consecutive rows of 3+ symbols starting at either the left or right hand reel a winner. You’ll tune into this very quickly if you have not played using it on other games.
Graphics are stunning, and I do not use this label lightly. The reels are set against a backdrop of Saturn, with asteroids floating in and out of view. Animations and symbols (which are mostly members of the crew) are top quality too. Sounds are a mix of stirring music, beeps and space noises and quotes from the main characters. There are a lot of these quotes, and sometimes they feel a little out of context.
There is an on-reels feature called energized wilds, where you get assigned wild symbols at random. The main feature (called Defend the Enterprise) is amazing. This involves video clips of a battle from the film, and then a battle of your own. Once this is over, you go to a wheel game – and hopefully land a big prize.
