Twisted Turbine: Slot Overview

Developer Fantasma Games likes to use unusual themes as we've seen previously in titles like Flower Fortunes Megaways and even more so in Desert Shark. Their futuristic themed slot Twisted Turbine is no exception and has been matched with some equally unusual mechanics. Along with a unique grid layout are several features that need to be played through to fully grasp how they work. The paytable is super detailed, packing in a ton of rules, so let’s pick them apart to get to Twisted Turbine’s gist.


The last few Fantasma slots have been heavily fantasy-based, yet Twisted Turbine heads in the other direction – the future. The 5-reel grid area is set in an industrial complex, like a factory, or lab, full of robots. Gadgets and monitors litter the place while the grid itself spins on a giant rotating turbine. The robots themselves seem heavily inspired by The Iron Giant, a 1999 American animated science fiction action film produced by Warner Bros. If you haven't seen that one, take a break from the slots and go watch it.


The grid layout is a bit different from what you may have seen before and is laid out in a 5-3-1-3-5 formation. In normal circumstances, having one symbol on the middle reel would seriously retard the chances of landing winning combinations. To compensate, Twisted Turbine uses a win-all-ways system which provides 225 ways to win. Here a hit occurs when three or more identical symbols land on consecutive reels, starting from any reel.


Playable from 40 p/c to £/€200 per spin, the game offers solid potential which mixes well with the high volatility and an RTP rating of 96.51%. The way features build-up does mean there can be a lot of dead spinning going on - something to be aware of.


Another thing you’ll automatically spot is that symbols come in one of two colours, red or blue. There are four in each colour group – bolts, batteries, fire/electricity, and robots. Since only one symbol can land on the middle reel, only one set of coloured symbols can win per spin.

Five of a kind values range from 0.5 to 2 times the stake, so they aren’t particularly valuable in one-off wins. Helping matters is the golden ‘W’ wild which can substitute for any regular symbol to make a winning combination.


Twisted Turbine: Slot Features

Avalanche feature

When a winning combination is formed, the successful symbols are removed and new ones drop in and replace them. Known as the Avalanche feature, these continue until no new winner is created. You can only create winners made up either of fire or electrical symbols in a single set of avalanches. This is determined by the symbol on the middle reel.



Turbine Robot Credit Win feature

You’ll notice a pair of Turbine Robots (Fire and Electrical) that sit at the top and bottom of the reels. Each one has a meter. Land a winner made up of fire symbols and it fills 1 position on the Fire Robot’s meter. The same applies to the Electrical Robot when you win with electrical symbols.


Known as the Turbine Robot Credit Win feature, you’ll win a prize equal to 1 x your total stake every time you fill the 2 parts of a robot’s meter in a single set of avalanches. The meter then resets to 0.




Twisted Turbine feature

The Twisted Turbine feature is where things get a little strange. Fill the meter of the Robot at the bottom of the screen and reels flip 180 degrees. The avalanches then continue as normal. More importantly, each Rotation within a single set of avalanches brings an expanding multiplier into play.


In the base game, the Rotation Multipliers are 1x, 2x, 4x, 10x and 20x. You can check what the multiplier currently stands at in the meter at the bottom of the screen. The multiplier resets to its standard 1x at the start of each spin.




Free Spins feature

Land 3 or 4 bonus symbols on the same spin and your reward is 10 or 15 free spins in the Free Spins feature. The Turbine Robot Credit Wins feature is in play during the feature.


So too is the Twisted Turbine feature. The potential multipliers on offer are even bigger in the free spins than the base game. Each free spin starts at 1x but can rise to 3x, 5x, 15x or even 50x if you get on a roll with the reel flips.


Retriggers are possible too. Landing 3 or 4 bonus symbols adds another 10 or 15 free spins to your total, with no limits.



Twisted Turbine: Slot Verdict

The features section might not have made a whole lot a sense. Basically, you want avalanches to draw out as long as possible. In this way, they build up prizes in the Robot’s displays and win multipliers along the way. This procedure gets a kick during free spins because they do not reset. The longer, the better too, since the game carries an impressive potential of 9,500 times the stake if you can get the turbine rotating like there is no tomorrow.


It might require a fair amount of patience to do so though. Twisted Turbine can be slow going at times. If you like your slots moving at a steady pace, then Twisted Turbines probably isn’t for you. It’s more complicated. You don’t need a degree in engineering to grasp how it all goes, though it might shorten the learning curve.


Twisted Turbine is a slot that sits firmly in the snowball variety of games. One spin is all it takes to kick start a chain of events that can get quite lengthy at times, building up decent Twisted Robot Credits and multipliers as it goes. You’ll need them too, to counteract the downtime which can be significant, but, is the price you pay when spinning this type of slot.


When you weigh everything up, Fantasma Games has done a clever job of integrating an original reel setup, with a win-all-ways system, and several intricate features. For the most part, Twisted Turbine balances out quite well and doesn’t get too weighed down by all of the disparate elements. If you like spins to turn into long drawn out sequences of events, Twisted Turbine might be worth a look.
