About the Game

The Lab has a great premise and it is delivered wonderfully. The backdrop is a swirling vortex and the symbols of molecules and chemicals complete the entire look and feel of the game.

SYMBOLS

The Lab is full of chemical symbols. Each of them has a payout starting from 30 coins and stretching out to a whopping 1000 coins! Below is an outline of the symbols and the possible coins they can fetch you.

Water (H2O) = 30 Coins
Oxygen (02) = 40 Coins
Gold (AU) = 60 Coins
Pink Molecue = 100 Coins
Purple Molecule = 200 Coins
Blue Molecules = 500 Coins
Green Molecules = 1000 Coins

WILD SYMBOL

There is no Wild in the base game. But the Lab Logo functions as the Wild in the Free Spins round.

SCATTER SYMBOL

The Scatter symbol in The Lab is represented by The Lab logo. But as it goes with Science, precision is key. The Scatter needs to appear in the exact centre of the vortex on reel 2. That is the only way to trigger the Free Spins Feature.

You will be awarded 10 Free Spins. There is a possibility of increasing the number of Free Spins. If you land +1 or +2 symbols, the sum of the respective amounts will be added to your Free Spins. 

BONUS MULTIPLIER

The symbol with the X represents the bonus multiplier in this online slots game. Whenever it appears on the screen, any winning combinations will be instantly doubled!

COMPOUNDING BETTING OPTIONS

To mix things up further, The Lab offers 1 of 3 Betting Strategies that players can select.

1) Jumper: The bet doubles on each consecutive win. This can go on for a maximum of 10X the original stake. However, a loss will reset the betting level

2) Leveller: An interesting deviation from the bet above, Leveller will increase the bet level by 2 if there are 5 losses in a row. This will go on to a maximum of 10x the initial bet

3) Booster: The bet will increase by a level upon each loss. This too can go on till a maximum of 10x of the original bet.

The Verdict

The Lab is easy enough to play but its made very interesting with the betting strategies. The game is futuristic, exciting, and best of all you don’t feel too guilty spending hours on it as you feel like you’re brushing up on your high school chemistry!
