Tetris Extreme is a truly unique branded slot developed by Red7 that plays just like the famous real-life video game, all the way down to the recognisable soundtrack, which is a fast-paced techno version of the 1984 original!
Rather than utilise symbols and reels, this slot sees players register wins each time a full line of blocks appear on the game screen, whenever a line is cleared a multiplier climbs up (to a total of 50x) and a new set of blocks come into play!
We have to give some major props to Red7 as this game is wonderfully designed. Behind the reels is a hypnotic scene featuring thousands of shining stars spread across a vast purple galaxy, at the bottom of the game screen is a strange rotating sphere.
The game screen itself is designed to emulate an actual Tetris screen, rather than having reels or symbols we simply have blocks in all sorts of shapes and sizes that you'd see in the original game.
When you start spinning the reels a modern take on the original Tetris theme song 'Korobeiniki' plays. It's still the same old Russian folk song you know and love, but it's got a cool techno vibe to it which gets especially heavy during free spins.
All in all Red7 have done an absolutely stellar job of giving this franchise the love it so rightly deserves, some developers don't go to all the lengths to make a branded slot feel like it's actually part of the brand, but that's certainly not the case here.
As we mentioned, players register wins every time a full line of blocks appears on the game screen (regardless of colour), whenever a line has cleared a multiplier on the left-hand side of the reels climbs up (to a total of 50x) a new set of blocks come into play! If players manage to clear 15 lines in total on just one spin then they'll automatically trigger 10 free spins!
This medium volatility 2019 slot has an RTP of 95.09%, which is a little bit lower than we like to see. In terms of maximum winning potential, players can win a maximum of 2,500x their stake which again isn't anything groundbreaking, but it's still enough to tempt us to play... Especially when you remember this game is linked to SG Digital's Mega Drop Jackpot network.
Honestly, we loved playing Tetris Extreme! Any game that strays from the norm will grab our attention, and this is one of them for sure! The increasing multipliers made for some lucrative wins and the free spins round was particularly exciting. Don't let the fairly low win potential put you off.
