Cyber Attack Review
Red Tiger Gaming has done the unthinkable and has produced a game that isn't about Egypt or fishing! To be fair to the developer, they aren’t the only ones and every game creator out there is guilty of following similar patterns. But not so anymore, and we now have a chance to take on a very modern scenario with a cyber attack setting the scene for this very latest slot.
Cyber Attack manages to blend the slightly vague imagery of an industrial mainframe computer with neon lights and symbols that are represented by playing cards and computer files. Naturally, the playing cards are the lower-paying while the files and the various images they represent will give you the biggest payouts. Every time you hit the spin button you're greeted by some electronic music that then fades out. So if you aren’t constantly hitting the spin button and are, instead, taking your time over this one, you will be sitting in silence most of the time.
Free spins can arrive at any time thanks to the Breach feature and while this isn't much different to waiting for Scatter symbols, it does feel a little more protracted. With a game that presents Scatter symbols, you can see them landing in various quantities throughout the spins to tease you a little. However, this random trigger—that may or may not bring a breach—can go a long time without surfacing and the adrenaline dissipates. It is a nice touch that modifiers can arrive on a failed breach though—every cloud and all that!
If you manage to hack your way into the mainframe, then Red Tiger Gaming may reward you with a potential 10,600x payout. The volatility is high and, apparently, so is the hit frequency. We say ‘apparently’ as our time with the slot didn't really reflect that stat. The RTP is 96%.
We joined this Cyber Attack with high hopes and were excited to see where the developer was going to take this theme. We haven't played a game like this before and we could feel the anticipation building. Unfortunately, this spark soon fizzled out as the game progressed and we were left feeling a little short-changed. But always keen to shine the spotlight on positive aspects as well, the non-breach triggering modifiers are a nice touch and the bonus game can produce large winning combos.
