There aren't many slots that explore different timelines and alternative realities but that's exactly the case in Northern Lights Gaming Timelines.
Released through Microgaming, this slot plays on 5-reels with 243 ways to win and features a huge amount of features including free spins, cash pots and a timeline featuring bringing back symbols from previous spins!
Sadly, there's not a huge amount of innovation in this slot in terms of the design as the background is a boring static image. The image was quite blurry on our playthrough but it looks to be an image designed to look like something in space.
Thankfully, the symbols on the reels are designed a lot better with more defined textures and each has interesting designs. The slot would definitely feel more cohesive if the background matched this level.
For the most part, there is a soft synth score in the background that plays but this is often overshadowed by the noises of the reels spinning which are incredibly loud. We recommend turning down the volume quite a bit if you are a headphone user.
One thing that is clear about this slot is the amazing gameplay. There is so much going on in this slot that you'll struggle to become bored with the multiple features and mechanics leading to loads of excitement.
Everything the player will need can be found on the right side of the screen including the spin button and bet level here.
In terms of the win potential, there's nothing overly too special going on in this slot but it's nothing too bad either - it's definitely middle of the reels. The RTP is 96.17% with a medium volatility level which is quite standard.
However, the maximum win for this slot is 9,500x the stake which can be achieved with the multipliers doubling throughout free spins. It's a great amount that will definitely leave players satisfied.
Timelines is a cool concept for a slot and the Timelines mechanic is one that should definitely become a frequent feature. The overall gameplay is pretty exciting with the other features as well.
Our only real issue with the game was the terrible design of the slot which is almost an eyesore. If it wasn't for this, then Timelines could've been a new hit slot.
Despite all of this, if you manage to just avoid the horrible background, then your experience of Timelines will be one that is unique and full of fun.
