This video slot from Net Entertainments is themed around magnets and electricity. It is a quirky game, and relatively simple by the standards of some NetEnt titles. As you would expect from this software house, the game-play is first class. You’ll have the opportunity to win big thanks to the unique magnet feature round, which can include a lot of sticky wild symbols.
This review of the Attraction slot from NetEnt gives you a complete run-down of this popular game. It is back-to-basics for the first section below, with the setup, bets and regular wins all described. Bonus feature rounds are the subject of the next section, with two main bonus games to cover. My appraisal of the slot can then be found at the bottom of this page.
How To Play The Attraction Slot Machine
In this slot you will find reels which are on a backdrop of electricity, computers and secretive laboratory experiments. On the reels you will find many testing devices and pulsating electromagnetic fields. Symbols on the reels become animated when part of a winning line, except the electromagnet, which remains constantly animated throughout the game.
The High paying symbols are various data measuring devices – you can win up to 500 coins if you manage to land 5 magnets. The low paying symbols are the usual 10 to Ace playing card icons riveted or screwed to the reels in keeping with the laboratory theme. The highest paying symbol here is the Ace and will get you 100 coins for 5. I found that the smaller and mid-sized wins came in frequently in this game, keeping my bankroll topped up nicely. There are magnetic wild symbols in this game, which form part of one of the bonus feature. I have explained how these work below.
Winning lines are fixed at 10 on this slot, which means your choices are the number of coins and the level you choose (multiplier of coins per line). You can spin for just 1c for each line (10c). For high rollers you can choose to bet $1 per line, and multiply by 10 – for a total of $100 per spin. Remember to double check the total spin amount before you start playing, it is easy to get caught out if you are not aware of how these rules work.
Attraction Bonus Features
The Magnet Feature works with the Wild symbols. This feature is unique and is not found in other slots. Every time you spin the reels, the magnet will pop up in 1 of 12 positions around the reels. There are six horizontally placed on the reels, 3 on the left and 3 on the right, and six placed vertically, 3 at the top and 3 at the bottom. The vertical positions are lined over reels 2, 3 and 4. When the Magnet pops up a magnetic beam shines out of it and it will try to attract the Magnetic Wilds. This will turn any wilds attracted to the beam into Sticky Wilds and activate free spins.
If the Wild is against the edge of the reels where the Magnet is the only one tile will change to a Wild but if the Wild symbol is away from the edge where the Magnet is it will explode into an animated ball of electricity shooting back at the Magnet and changing everything in its path into Sticky Wild symbols. This can award Big Wins and Mega Wins when there are 4 or 5 Sticky Wilds going across the whole of one or more rows. They remain active on the reels until no new Wild symbols appear on the same position as a new magnet during any Re-Spin.
NetEnt Attraction Slot Summary
My first impression of this slot was that it looked like an older game. What I found was that the magnet feature more than made up for this, and that the overall game-play was excellent. Sure, you will not be taken out of the main games into an interactive feature game with this slot, however it makes up for it with both retro charm and the chance to hit the ‘mega wins’ at any time when a magnet appears on the reels.
There is no progressive jackpot attached to this slot game – however you can win up to 50,000 coins on any one spin. I would rate this game at low to mid-variance. There were plenty of smaller wins which kept my bankroll ticking over – interspersed with the occasional bigger win when the wilds came in.
To conclude: This is not a cutting edge game, though it does have a lot of retro-charm and the unique magnet feature is very entertaining. I recommend you check out this slot, as well as the more modern NetEnt titles.
