For us, the word Symmetry means something being perfectly in proportion, and if there's more than one object in question, then each would be the mirror image of the other. In Realistic Games'
Symmetry slot, however, the symmetrical aspect refers to the way in which you can create winning combinations. Using big shiny jewels, gold ingots, 7s, and wads of banknotes, you can score cash prizes in the usual manner. But if you want to unlock the slot's Symmetry Bonus, you'll need to trigger it by creating a symmetrical pattern which awards you the top jackpot. And for added excitement and extra value-for-money, Realistic Games has included a second bonus game where you can re-spin the reels to land more matching symbols that will enhance your win.
More about the Software Provider
Realistic Games is an exciting online slots manufacturer whose games can also be played on mobile devices. Although, it's a relatively new brand on the market, Realistic Games has already won the title of Best Mobile Supplier at the 2016 EGR B2B Awards. The company is particularly fond of making three-reels slots such as 8th Wonder, Hot Cross Bunnies, and Sunrise Reels but also produces five-reel slot games such as 6 Appeal, Time is Money, Riverboat Gambler, and Randall's Riches.
Appearance and Sound Effects
Symmetry blends several themes to give you a dark Victorian-style mosaic background which features the name of the game, and overlays it with the semi-transparent reel set which shows influences of classic slots in its 7 symbols, as well as a money theme with the gold bars, wads of cash, amethysts, sapphires, rubies, and diamond symbols. And, as such an unusual-looking game wouldn't be complete without an equally zany soundtrack, there's upbeat pop-py music which becomes quite catchy after a few listens.
At each side of the reel, there are two spin buttons. The larger of the two is the one that spins the reels while, the smaller button lets you set up the Auto-Play feature to spin the reels 10, 25, 50, or 100 times on your behalf.
Bonuses and Special Features
You can create winning combinations by getting three or more matching adjacent symbols anywhere on an active payline. There's no wild symbol and no bonus symbol, so if you're not very experienced in playing online slots, Symmetry is ideal.
You can trigger the Bonus Round with three of the same symbol anywhere on the reels. Once the bonus starts, you must tap the Start button to pick a reel at random. A re-spin is then awarded with all of the reels that don't contain the selected symbol re-spinning, and when they land, they are guaranteed to feature between one and three of that symbol.
For us, the biggest highlight of the game is the Symmetry Bonus, which is triggered when you activate the Bonus Round with a symmetrical pattern. Symmetrical patterns are formed when the first and fifth reel match and the second and fourth reel match, and the Symmetry Bonus gives you a full house of matching symbols along with a generous payout.
Symmetry uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and ten paylines, and has an RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 95.56%.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
The unusual combination of Victorian influences, fruit machine symbols, and gemstones makes Symmetry an online slots game that immediately stands out from the crowd. But, it's the quirky gameplay and two bonuses that make it really unusual. You might find it to be an acquired taste, but in our opinion, once you've tried it for the first time, you're highly likely to come back for a second try.
