Verdict & Conclusion
One can summarize the game as an exciting journey in outer space and that is exactly what Star Trek is all about! The gameplay is maybe not amazing, but the journey towards outer space is not a failure because the slot is fun. It’s also quite an experience to play the slot, because it’s not ordinary or average. The features are peculiar and there are stars in the gamefield that pass by while you play.
It might take a while to grasp what is going on in the slot and it can appear as somewhat complicated. However, keep on playing, the game will become more entertaining when you understand the features and what is happening.
The music played while you play is the famous theme music from the TV show, that is of course appreciated if you are a Star Trek fan. The slot is a must try and it’s certainly an experience for a slot enthusiast. It’s fun but not “that fun” and some extra spice like better features could have been added to make the slot more appealing.
However the slot is definetly worth a couple of spins and if you are a into
Star Trek, unlocking levels might be something for you. The game is not a SlotHit, but it’s a decent space game with wonderful special features and footage, that offers plenty of fun for Star Trek Fans.
