The Star Trek slot machine - released by WMS Gaming in 2007, it became an overnight success story due not only to the brand, but also for being an innovative and excellent slot in its own right.
Now also being made by IGT (a different version), it has become a classic hit on the Las Vegas casino floor. With more version planned for release, there is a lot to be excited about for all fans of Star Trek.
The star trek slot takes advantage of WMS Gaming's new "Adaptive Gaming" technology, that gives you a unique story-line as you play.
The console itself has Bose surround sound speakers and has a special seat attached, which is linked to the gameplay. This means that when you hear a phasor shoot, you get the experience in full surround sound and also that you get to feel the vibrations of the blasts in the seat.
The combined effect of the vibrations through the chair and the surround sound are quite stunning and give the game the full - arcade machine experience, rather than that of an old-style slot
As you play the game, you progress through a Star Trek adventure, winning ‘medals’ along the way. As you get more medals, you get to play in different bonus games, like the Tribble bonus game and also the Shields Down bonus game. Unlike many other casino slots, the features here really are interactive and great fun to play.
You also get to play the bonus games for quite a long time, rather than them being over almost before they started. This results in a lot more entertainment for your money when you play
The best UK casino to play Star Trek is Jackpot Party Casino
More recently, the game has become available as a penny slot version, making it more accessible for low stakes players (like myself).
Of course, as with many penny slots, in order to play all the lines and to max bet, even in penny slot versions, it can still add-up. So, it is worth being careful when planning your playing session on the Star Trek slot game - see if you can still win the jackpot when not playing max-bet (the machines vary between casinos)
If you can find a game where the slot jackpots can be won on a minimal stake, you would be well advised to note it down and continue playing on that machine.
Even though this machine has been around for a little while, it still seems to be drawing big crowds and quite often, we saw people actually queuing to get a seat at console. There can’t be many slots in Vegas that still see that, with the exception, perhaps, of WMS’ Wizard of Oz slot machine.
There has been some considerable support for casinos to feature Star Trek slots in their slot tournaments, so we will keep our eyes peeled and will be the first to let you know if we hear of any upcoming tourneys with this slot in the future
