A new Super Hero Rises – Electric Diva from Microgaming

Electric Diva Slot by MicrogamingThe world’s worst fears have been realized. Insidious aliens have laid siege to Spark City, and the military’s destructive girth has proved powerless to stop them. Low and behold, in the darkest depths of the metropolitan’s underbelly, a heroine rises.

Born of super hero strength, Electric Diva emerges from the shadows. In her original form, she is a near mimic of Marvel’s super hero, Elektra (but without the sais). Donning a sexy, red leather suit, the sable haired beauty has the ability to transform into a purple-skinned, demonesque goddess complete with blue hair and twisted horns.

The weapon of choice for Electric Diva is – you guessed it – an electric guitar that blasts currents of static energy towards the enemies; in this case, hordes of nasty, floating alien machines determined to overtake the planet.

As intriguing as the darkly themed Electric Diva Slot is in theory, you won’t experience hardly any of this unless you unlock the special bonus feature, which leads us to…

Electric Diva Slot Features

Microgaming’s latest release is a 5 reel, 40 payline online poker machine that, while imaginative in plot, is really nothing more than another cookie cutter of its newest Free Spins slots format. However, the music is decent – a drawn-out riff of electric guitar that I can only describe as a mix between blues and soft jazz – and it’s got enjoyable graphics, if you like the dark super hero motif.

Electric Diva Slot SymbolsSymbols include the Dark Electric Diva, Normal Electric Diva, Bats, Scorpions, Aliens and – as always from Microgaming – the playing card symbols of 10 through A. The Electric Diva logo is the Wild, doing the traditional job of creating more opportunities for winning combinations.

A pair of Scatter symbols include crossed Electric Guitars and those dastardly Aliens. The guitars are just standard scatters, paying a multiple of the triggering bet when enough appear anywhere on the screen; 4x for three, 40x for four and 200x for five.

The real ambition for players is to land 3 or more Alien scatters on the reels in a single spin. This brings up the Electric Diva Slot Bonus Game, which is the only thing worth playing for in this medium variance reel spinner.

The paytable info delivers a seemingly disappointing message about this free spin game. Note the low number of free spins player’s start with in the image below.

Electric Diva Slot Bonus Game

However, the initial bonus game should increase those numbers before the free spins get rolling. The Electric Diva takes to the streets, transforming into her demon form to battle the horde of otherworldly creatures. 18 aliens fly onto the screen, and it’s the player’s job to shoot them down. Behind each alien is a reward of either 1-to-10 additional free spins and 1-2x multipliers. Each reward is collected and added to the ensuing free spins until the player shoots down the lone alien with ‘Start Free Spins‘ message beneath.

If you don’t feel like shooting down the aliens yourself, you can always press on the guitar pick in the bottom left corner that cleverly reads “Auto Pick“.

If you get lucky enough to stack up a max 8x multiplier during free spins – and line up just the right combination of symbols on the reels – you can snag this game’s highest possible payout of 140,000 credits.

Electric Diva Slot is now available at Royal Vegas and other leading, Microgaming powered online casinos.
