Oasis famously sang that "She's Electric" and although the song was not written with Microgaming's newest addition to its slots family in mind, it is certainly a perfect fit for this 5x3, 40 payline game.
As you may well have guessed, the theme of the slot is the erstwhile Electric Diva, a demanding, yet rather sultry woman who inhabits the streets of Sparks City and who faces the imminent threat of an invading plague of aliens. Not one to be put off by an impending alien attack, our plucky heroine adopts her weapon of choice, an electric guitar naturally, and attempts to send the evil invading hoard packing.
While this may seem somewhat outlandish to us, it is just another day in Sparks City and on your quest through this slot, you'll assist the Electric Diva with her attempts to drive out the invaders.
The first thing to note about the slot is that Microgaming have, once again, got the look of the slot just right. Sure, it's the usual 5x3 reels, free spins slot, but the presentation does help it look and feel different and Microgaming have certainly upped their game in that respect with the last few releases and for the modern slot fan, that can only be a good thing.
The playing card symbols are the low symbols, with a number of inhabitants of Sparks City as the high symbols, including the Electric Diva herself. My one gripe here is that a little additional thought could have seen the low symbols changed into perhaps invading aliens, rather than the usual playing card lows. On the flip side though, at least it is easy to recognise which are the higher and which are the lower paying symbols.
There's 40 paylines in operation on each spin and you can wager as little as $0.01 per line if you choose to do so, or you can ramp up the wager per line considerably and play for a lot more. This means you don't have to have a huge bankroll to enjoy all that the Electric Diva has to offer.
Of course, the proof of whether the Electric Diva can make the slots wail as much as her trusty Guitar Blaster comes in the playing and the good news for slot fans is that this is one Diva whose game is as good as her looks.
The first thing to note is that this is a game which pays out relatively frequently, although most of the wins you tend to get are not that huge. However, those smaller wins do keep your balance topped up and mean that when you hit a bigger win, you can bump up how much you win in a session considerably.
While the base game wins are not generally that huge, the fact that you can win relatively frequently means that you do tend to have a positive feeling when playing the game, but it is fair to say that the action really ramps up when you trigger one of the three main bonus features.
The first of these is the Electric Diva logo, which acts as the in game wild and can substitute for any of the high or low symbols to create a winning payline.
The second bonus is the Alien Bonus symbol and this acts as a cash prize scatter symbol. Land three or more of these anywhere across the reels and you will receive a nice cash prize that can be considerably more than the usual base game win.
The main feature however is triggered when you land three or more of the Duel Guitar Blaster scatter symbols across the reels. The more scatters you hit, the more free spins you will initially be awarded. Land three scatters, you hit one free spin with a 1x multiplier, four scatters sees 2 free spins with a 2x multiplier, while five sees 3 free spins with a 3x multiplier.
If those sound somewhat tightfisted then don't panic as you have the chance to earn up to 40 free spins in the next section. Here, you must blast the advancing alien hoard with your guitar blaster to unlock more free spins and multiplier bonuses, earning up to 40 spins and a multiplier of up to 8x your win.
Electric Diva is a slot game that also has a nifty little arcade-style bonus feature which can ramp up your initial measly free spins and multiplier offering into something far more enticing. With a jackpot available of 560,000 coins, this is also a slot that boasts a decent sized jackpot for those players who prefer to target the bigger paying slot games.
