Gamevy’s The Link Has Been Launched
The Link relies on a geometry inspired set of symbols, while using a link concept when it comes to how they form their combinations.
It’s a minimalist design that Gamevy has put forward in this case, but it can work for it, and for the players that prefer that kind of look.
The slot has 3 reels, but manages to cram 8 lines on them thanks to that link system. It apparently can pay up to 5,000 coins in certain circumstances, which would mean $50,000 cash.
What We Love
I’m sure that there will be more than a few players that will enjoy the minimalist design style. You will notice a dark background, with tiny dots of light moving around, and in front there are the three reels with symbols on them. There isn’t too much detail introduced in the symbols, as they’re mostly shapes coming in different colors. It starts with the cross, continues with the circle, the triangle, the square, diamond, and finally, the Star Wild.
The game has only 3 reels, yet it manages to cram 8 lines on them. The reason is the fact that combos form through the link system. You need three matching icons to be present in a straight line. You get these lines of symbols in any direction, so they can be horizontal, diagonal or vertical.
A combo can very well take over a reel for itself. Since you can easily form multiple combinations during the same spin, the game rewards this type of event, and gives you impressive payouts, the more combos are formed the same round. For example, the best combo, of three Diamond or Star Wild symbols, will give you only 2x when you have a single line formed, but 5,000x if you have all 8 lines.
There is a single symbol which can be used as a feature, and it’s naturally the one they call Star Wild. The image used for it is that of a yellow star. Forming high paying combinations is one possibility you have with it, but there is also the option to get it to substitute for others.
What We Do Not Like
I doubt it will be a fun game for everyone. Some will simply find it too simple, either in the way it works or in its looks.
I suspect that it will be either a love or hate feeling that will be inspired by this slot machine. It has its pros, but its cons are there as well.
