Online Neopolis Slot Mixes Past and Future
In the 1960s, the popular animated TV sit-com The Jetsons presented America with a humorous look at the future: basically, all the styles and mod cons of the Eisenhower age transferred to a space colony. The RF Neopolis slot from NextGen Gaming, available at online casinos, puts an ironic twist on this paradoxical mix of retro and futuristic. It stays true to the flying cars, art-deco-on-steroids architecture and visiting alien spaceships of the Sixties imagination, while peopling the game with platinum-blonde space vixens inspired more by Barbarella, the big-screen adult sci-fi hit of the same era.
The Neopolis slot is set in the space city Neopolis, a riot of pastel skyscrapers and innovatively shaped hotels in the background to the five reels. Flying saucers piloted by green aliens swoop past, occasionally colliding. Another nod to Sixties design is the reel frame, fashioned as the grille and red tail fins of a car from that era, complete with rocket-flame brake lights. Of course, the flying cars of The Jetsons also incorporated the fashions of the day.
Fixed Paylines and Fruit Machine Symbols
Players must bet on all 25 paylines to play the Neopolis slot, and they can only adjust the total bet per spin. This can be set at 0.50, 1.25, 2.50, 5.00, 6.25, 12.50, 25.00 or 50.00 in the appropriate currency. The game automatically assigns line bets across all 25 paylines, and the credits listed on the pay table must be multiplied by one twenty-fifth of the bet per spin to find the true prize.
Again referencing the gambling machines of the Jetsons era, the Neopolis slot uses classic fruit machine symbols in base play. True to the paradoxical theme, these are rendered in shiny, up-to-date 3D designs.
500 Credits in Top Payline Win
There are four fruits, of traditional design with a glossy 3D update, on the Neopolis slot reels: a lemon, an orange, an olive and a bunch of grapes. They all pay identical prizes: 5, 20 or 100 credits for three, four or five matches. Three flashy diamonds, one green, one red and one blue, also win identical prizes: of 10, 25 or 150 credits for the same matches.
Completing the theme, the Neopolis slot rounds off its ordinary symbols with three Lucky 7s, in pale blue, bright green and gold-trimmed red. They win 2 or 3 credits for two of a kind, and their prizes increase incrementally until five of a kind pays 200, 250 or 500 credits, respectively. The sexy space vixen is the Neopolis slot’s Wild. At random, she will appear full-length next to the reels and fire her space gun to add a random extra Wild to the spin. This happens more frequently during the free spins round.
Five Bonus Features to Boost Prizes
The Neopolis slot logo is a Scatter that can deliver up to 2,500X the total bet and 10 bonus free spins. A second Scatter, a flying car labelled Bonos, delivers a randomly selected bonus game whenever three or more appear. This could be the Couples Bonus, Roulette Bonus, City Bonus or Robot Factory. Each bonus offers a variety of extra spins, instant prizes or bonus multipliers.
