Sparky & Shortz Slot Review

Play ‘n GO has been on fire these last few weeks, with a stellar slot seemingly coming out a day after the other. Sparky and Shortz is not exempt from this rollout and is arguably probably one of the better games from Play ‘n GO this month. Sparky and Shortz take place on a planet called Alpha Labori, which is on the brink of extinction, and its only hope are the droids Sparky and Shortz! Sparky is a maintenance robot, and Shortz is a life-saving robot that is on its last legs. Sparky’s job is to get Shortz in working condition to get the planet in order. However, there isn’t much time left until destruction comes.

Sparky and Shortz has a maximum payout of 10,000x your bet, which we love. Additionally, there’s an RTP of 96.28% and high volatility. This is a bit over the average for slots of this type and over Play ‘n GOs go-to 96.2% RTP. Read this Sparky and Shortz slot review to get the full breakdown of how this slot holds up.

Apocalyptic Alpha Labori

The grid for Sparky and Shortz is incredibly impressive. Firstly, the soundtrack is clunky, jarring and space age-y. The soundtrack really adds to the overall sci-fi feel of the slot. If you have seen Disney Pixar’s “Wall-E”, you will find some similarities, particularly empathy towards robots!

Low-paying symbols are pretty satisfying, depicted by different bright and colourful space rocks. The high-paying symbols are the winners, represented by three other aliens, which can reward you up to 10x your total bet if you manage to land a winning combination of 5 across a payline. The high-paying symbols can sometimes land stacked, which will be depicted on the grid with the aliens coming out of their conservation tubes and extending to large scale aliens that will take up most of the reel. The Wild in Sparky and Shortz is what appears to be a galaxy within a glass tube. This can land anywhere on the grid and substitute for any symbol. Land anywhere up to 5 symbols, it will pay out 20x your bet. Look out for the power cell symbol – this will be your key to trigger the bonus round.

The game is based heavily on multipliers. During the base game, they will continue to increase. However, after a non-winning spin, they will reset.
