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
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
Probably one of the most long-awaited online slots for years, is the star trek slot machine. It is available in quite a few formats, on a few different online casinos where you can play it for real money or for free. The game is, though, only available for UK players at the moment.
This is a truly original pokie game (the word for slots in Australia) in that as you play you are taken through a voyage that is unique to you. The gameplay is really both simple to play, but incredibly complex in the number of possible outcomes there are. In fact, there are so many bonuses and games, it is quite mind-boggling.
Some of the bonus games in this pokie include all your favorite stars from the first series of star trek, including kirk, Spock and the tribbles, which may get you into tribble trouble. No doubt, a slot on The Next Generation will soon follow, with all of the great characters from that series to. Something to look forward to.
As with most of the new online WMS pokies released in Australia and New Zealand, when you play this game you always stand a chance of hitting the random progressive jackpot, no matter what stake you are playing
