We would all like a second chance at something if the opportunity came along and this is the beauty of slots that contain respin and free spins features. This gives players another free opportunity at bagging that all-important winning slot spin. Some slots utilize this feature regularly in the base game whilst others save the respin feature for the bonus round.

Fire Blaze Jackpot Slots

Playtech are leaders in games that give players respins, this is especially the case in the Fire Blaze Jackpot series of slots. Here whilst the reels are spun, if 6 or more special symbols, which most commonly come in the shape of Orbs containing cash prizes or stars, land on the reels, then players are taken to a second screen where the re-spinning can commence.

This bonus is played on a grid rather than a reel platform and all the prizes bagged from the base game spin are transferred over onto the bonus grid. On this grid platform, players get 3 respin chances to add further prizes to the ones that triggered the bonus in the first place. If no more Orbs land on the grid during the 3 respins then the original prizes transferred over from the base game are awarded. If further Orbs land, then this retriggers the respins and they reset back to 3 until 3 consecutive losing spins are played out.

Other Respins Formats

Some slot games utilize respins as part of a special feature that is part of the base game. Slots such as King Kong Cash rely on Kong to awaken from his slumber to trigger a special feature that enlivens mundane base game spins. One of the features involves locking matching symbols that have landed next to each other. Once Kong locks the symbols in, the reels respin, if more matching symbols land on the reels to produce a winning sequence, then another spin is awarded until a losing spin ends the streak. The key to landing a big win with this feature is all dependent on what symbol is locked into position. Premium symbols offer the best chance of recording a big base game win, but the respins need to build up the symbol count considerably.

Wild Respins

Other forms of respins can be triggered by stacked wilds such as in Age of The Gods: God of Storms. Here a special wild that is represented by a ship sail needs to land fully stacked to trigger the Wild Wind Respin feature. Once this happens the God of Storms himself, blows the wild across the gaming platform one reel at a time, until it drops out of view. If this special wild lands on the 5th reel, then this triggers the most respins, and each respin is met with an ever-increasing multiplier of up to x5. This is the main bonus round in Age of The Gods: God of Storms.

All these features give players some extra play on the house, and they also increase the chances of landing a decent win. This is why players love slots that feature respins in all their various forms.
