Tesla Jolt has two different wild symbols. One is used during the base game and just like the usual wilds; it can form part of a winning combo. Also according to the paytable, it is the most paying symbol. The second wild is used during the Tesla Spins round.
The Tesla Jolt symbol turns one set of symbols on the reels into wilds. This means that one set of matching symbols on the reels all become wilds. Also, the Tesla Jolt symbol itself turns into a wild increasing the chances of landing bigger wins.
The Tesla spins feature is triggered by landing 3, 4 and 5 scatters on the reels on a single spin. You will be awarded 10, 15 and 20 free spins. These free spins come with a number of special extras too.
- Time-Lapse Trigger Feature – land the clock on reel five to trigger this feature. This will discharge any wilds you have in the meter and award more free spins.
- Charged Wilds Feature – when a wild appears on the three mid reels during the Tesla Spins mode, it is collected. When the reel’s meter gets completely charged, the collected wild symbols are added to the reel on top. Any wilds that have been collected are added to the reels for the last free spin, irrespective of whether the meter is full.
Sound And Graphics
Tesla Jolt pokie has a retro style, as the graphics and background are soft sepias in colours that add a real feeling of history and sobriety to the game. The graphics are quite good and you will see a science lab with machinery and equipment all over the room. There are papers on the floor indicating the fast-paced and busy life of the science team. You will also see an electricity conductor, bulbs and wires, as well as a bog wooden chest and an open window to give the scene some more atmosphere. The graphics are solid and a strong part of the game.
When it comes to the sound, the main soundtrack also adds to the darker feel and an aura of mystery around the lab. There are nice sound effects that characterize the animations, like the electromagnetic reaction between magnets and lighting.
The game has two main features—the Tesla Spins and the Tesla Jolt. The two features combined can help you rack up the wins. Players can wager from 0.2 credits to a maximum of 100 per payline. The game has no jackpot and the maximum amount that you could win in this game is 100,000 coins.
As already mentioned, Tesla Jolt will turn a set of the symbol into wilds when it lands on the reels and it will also turn into a wild. The special feature in this game is the Tesla Spins Feature. If there or more Tesla scatters appear on the reels, you will get 10, 15, or 2o free spins based on the number of scatters landed. During the feature, all wilds appearing on reels2, 3, and 4 will be collected. These are called Charged Wilds. The Charged Wilds will be released on their reel once they are fully charged which means that you must collect 3 wilds on a single reel, or if the Time-Lapse Trigger appears on the 5th reel, which also changes and becomes wild. If none of this occurs prior to the concluding Tesla Spin, all the Charged Wilds get released during the ending spin.
