What would you do if you suddenly had the power to alter time? Would you travel to the future and see what the brilliant minds of next century will bring? Or would you travel far back into the past to change the course of your entire life? No matter what your time bending wishes are, we can all agree on one thing: It would be absolutely incredible to control time the way it controls us.
Now you can get a taste of what it may be like with the Time Bender slot game from Arrow’s Edge. This futuristic slot game combines a touch of Doctor Who with a good old-fashioned slot game experience that will have you hooked.
There are 5 reels, 3 rows, and 40 different paylines in Time Bender. This is a bit different from many of Arrow’s Edge’s slot games. The number of paylines in this game is fixed at 40; hese run from both left to right and right to left. Your prize is multiplied by your bet per payline. The minimum bet per line is $0.02 ($0.80 total) and the maximum bet per line is $6.00 ($240.00 total). The autoplay feature allows you to automatically play between 5 and 50 spins.
Unlike many slot games—especially 5×3 and 5×4 slot games—there aren’t many symbols in Time Bender. All of the symbols in this game will only pay a prize when you match 3 or more of a kind on a single payline. In order from least to most valuable, these are the symbols in Time Bender: J, Q, K, A, hand, time machine, and man. The maximum reward from these symbols is 800x your bet per line, or $4,800.
Some reels will be highlighted during each spin. If the three center reels (2, 3 and 4) are all highlighted in one spin, they turn into a colossal symbol and a respin is triggered. Reels 1 and 5 respin and the center reels become all one symbol, giving you tons of chances to win big. Your triggering bet is used for this feature.
The wild symbol may only be partially displayed on the reels. In this case, the wild is nudged up or down to cover the entire reels. A colossal wild will also be nudged up or down to cover the entire reel.
The whirling optical illusion symbol triggers the bonus game. Select a ring from the outer layer to reveal a prize.
Time Bender, like all of the slot games by Arrow’s Edge, is easily available to play for free online. Doing a Google search for “Time Bender slots” will bring up many online casinos where you can try the game out without having to create an account. If you want to play for cash, though, you’ll need to sign up with an online casino.
Since this game requires Adobe Flash Player to run, you can’t play it on your mobile phone or tablet. Furthermore, Arrow’s Edge doesn’t make mobile versions of any of their games, so you’ll have to have a desktop PC or laptop to play.
All in all, this is a pretty slick slot game. The design is really nice and the reel mechanics feel just right. The background music is so light you might have trouble hearing it, but it’s the perfect soundtrack to a time traveling adventure. The interface is also very easy to use and offers all of the settings you’d typically want (except toggling paylines).
The extra features in this game are awesome. You get a bonus game that gives especially lucky players many chances to win, the nudge wild feature, and the colossal respin feature. Thanks to these 3 features, boredom won’t be a problem when you’re playing Time Bender.
There are two jackpots in this game—a cash grab and a super slots jackpot—but they don’t mention how to win them.
Whether you’re a Whovian or a slot player looking for something new, Time Bender is at least worth trying out.
