The Spin Lab Slots

The-Spin-LabThe Spin Lab doesn’t have a very clear theme for its players, but you do get the idea that it’s inspired by a futuristic lab, a place from a few hundred years into the future. NextGen Gaming usually relies on different kinds of designs, but here they decided to do things differently both with the graphics and the unusual features which are used when it comes to the bonus game.

The game feels unusual for this developer, giving up to $20,000 cash in prizes, while keeping the same layout with 5 reels/25 lines. A bonus game is part of the slot’s attractive features, along with scatters, free spins and all sorts of wilds and multipliers.

Features of The Spin Lab

There are some standard features in this case, meaning the wild and the scatter, but there is also a very unusual bonus game, where you get to choose the features which you want to take advantage of.

First, let’s take a look at the wild symbol, sporting a rather abstract image of various shapes and colors, in a digital environment. The wild symbol is easy enough to explain if you’ve played slots in the past. It can be part of other combinations of symbols if it appears where it is needed, by taking the same role as those other icons which are on the same line. You can use one or more wilds, together with one or more regular matching icons, and the regular icons will determine the wilds to help form a combo based on them. Wilds are also capable of awarding prizes of their own, as long as they land going from left to right, with at least two icons. Payouts can go up to 1,000x in that case.


The scatter has a pearl like image for it. It’s a symbol which is capable of triggering the bonus game and it also gives you prizes by being in two to five locations present. No matter where these symbols have appeared, you will get paid between 50x and 625x the bet.

Spin Lab Bonus

The bonus game is the unusual part of this slot machine. It needs 3+ scatters to get it triggered, and once inside you get to decide what your bonus game should be like. You pick three features for the free spins which will follow next. You only get 5 free spins, but the features which you choose can be quite profitable. Each row of features you can pick from has three choices for you. You get one feature from each row.


The first row has the pink choices. First, it’s the one called Symbols The Same, where DNA, Molecule, Atom or Cube icons are selected at random and are turned into the same symbol. Second, there is Symbols Stacked, where one of the same four types of symbols are chosen at random and it comes in stacked for the duration. Symbol Prizes is the third choice, which gives you a prize for each symbol that appears of a certain kind.

The second row has the wild features on it. One of them will give you stacked wilds, another will add extra wilds to the reels, while the third one offers multipliers of up to 10x for the wild wins.

The third row starts with All Wins Multiplier, which doubles all prizes obtained during the free spins. It continues with Pays Both Ways, where combos are formed from right to left as well, not just left to right. The third option doubles the number of free spins, to 10.

Betting options and jackpots

The coins which are used by the game vary from $0.01 to $2. You have 25 paylines to work with, and they require just as many coins. You also have to wager extra for the special features. A total of 40 coins are used at all times, to cover the 25 lines. The betting range is between $0.40 and $80.

The game’s prizes will give you wins of up to $2,000, but there are multipliers of up to 10x to take advantage of during the free spins.

Design and symbols

While the design of The Spin Lab is unusual, that doesn’t make it a great choice automatically. The background image has various shapes on the blue wall, with electricity going from the wires from time to time. The reels are occupied by poker cards with a honeycomb like structure and with different colors. DNA, atoms, molecules and cubes are the rest of the symbols.


Symbols: Wild Logo (1,000 coins), Globe (scatter, 625x the bet), Cube (800 coins), Atom (600 coins), Molecule (500 coins), DNA (400 coins), Ace (200 coins), King (200 coins), Queen (100 coins), Jack (100 coins), 10 (100 coins) and 9 (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

The slot might not have the world’s best design, but it works well enough. It pays well and it has features which impressed me, so I suggest you to give it a chance.

The The Spin Lab slot machine is offered through the NextGen platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
