There are a lot of great movie genres out there, but it’s hard to place any of them above spy movies. For more than 50 years, people from all over the world have lined up to see spy flicks such as those from the James Bond series. Because after all, is there anything better than a high-speed car chase complete with gunshots, explosions, and of course, a beautiful woman for the prevailing hero.
License to Spin by Arrow’s Edge puts you in the shoes of movies’ great spies with cool symbols, a cityscape background, and some great spy music to set the mood. While this game may appear super simple, it does have a couple of extra features.
There are 3 reels, 3 rows, and 3 paylines in License to Spin. The paylines in this game are fixed so your line bet will always be multiplied by 3. Your bet per line can be as small as $0.10 ($0.30 total) or as large as $80.00 ($240.00 total). The autoplay button allows you to automatically play between 5 and 50 (increments of 5) spins automatically. There is a Cash Grab jackpot and a Super Slots jackpot, but no information on how you can win either of them. These may only be available in for-cash games.
All payouts are multiplied by your bet per line. The first tier of symbols in License to Spin pays for matches of 3 of a kind on a payline. In order from least to most valuable, these symbols include the black club, red diamond, red heard, black spade, martini, gun with silencer, speedboat, and car. The highest reward from this tier is 40x your line bet. The cop and spy symbols both pay for matches of 2 or more—up to 60x your bet for 3 spies. The woman with the martini pays for landing 1 or more symbol, although you’ll need to land 3 symbols for the huge 1,000x payline win that can net you up to $80,000.
Landing a wild symbol on reel 3 gives you 3 respins while the wild moves to the left. After the second spin, the spy will shoot at the slot; an unsuccessful shot triggers the Shaken Not Stirred bonus round, and a successful shot triggers 3 more respins where the wild moves to the right.
In the bonus game, you get to choose between 1 of 2 glasses to reveal a prize. You can choose to collect your winnings or take whatever may be in the other glass.
License to Spin can be played on any computer with an internet connection. All you have to do is find an online casino that offers this game and you can get started instantly. If you want to play for cash, create an account and deposit some money.
You can even play License to Spin on smartphones and tablets at these same casinos. Just search Google for the game and try links; if one link says it doesn’t work with mobile devices, try the next one until you’ve found one that works.
So, is License to Spin worth giving a shot? I would say so. The biggest thing this game has to offer is a different experience. Most slot games these days have 5 reels and quite a few paylines, but Arrow’s Edge chose to keep it simple with this game, and it’s a decision that paid off. There are only 3 paylines in this game—each running straight across the reels—which makes it nice and simple.
The design of this game is done pretty well. The music is great and the symbols all make sense; otherwise, the design is pretty similar to a lot of Arrow’s Edge slot games.
If you’re tired of playing the same 5×3 slot games with 100 paylines and tons of bonus games and free spins features, you should try out License to Spin.
