Flux is a cosmic online video slot powered by Thunderkick. Set in space and with a futuristic soundtrack, the 5 reels of Flux consist of shining, rotating 3D crystals of a variety of bright colours. The game features 15 pay lines across 5 reels, and 3 varieties of bonus game which the player can choose from.
The brightly coloured rotating crystals are the standard symbols in Flux, ranging from lower value to higher value. These are joined by a rotating, silver B, which is the bonus symbol, and a golden W, which is the wild. The wild substitutes all other symbols except for the bonus, and can assist in creating winning combinations for some substantial wins!
The bonus symbol is the one you’ll be watching. 3 of them landing on your reels triggers the bonus game; any additional bonus symbols landing will simply throw in some extra free spins on top. The bonus game centres around free spins, however the player has a choice between 3 different versions. You can choose to play 16 free spins which allow you to win both ways on the pay lines (from left to right and right to left). You can choose to play 12 free spins but with an additional 3 rows added to the reels, creating better chances of a win. Or, you can select 8 free spins with the additional 3 rows as well as the win both ways feature. As aforementioned, any additional bonus symbols mean that the number of free spins in each option will increase.
In terms of theme and design, I found Flux to be a little on the basic side. As vibrant as the reels may be, it lacks the dazzling qualities of similar-themed games such as NetEnt’s Starburst, and appears a little retro in comparison. It does, however, manage to set a lovely ambient mood, and I particularly enjoyed the varied features of the bonus games that the players can choose from. The bonus game may not trigger as often as I’d like but it is worth it when it finally lands. Although not my favourite space-themed game, I would definitely return to Flux to play again.
