NRVNA: The Nxt Xperience™ Slot

 

For starters, the missing vowels are not a typo, it comes from Netent who decided that the name might sound more funky without them. Meet NRVNA: The Nxt Xperience™, the neon-style new slot from Netent, initially released exclusively to the Betit Group, the company behind casinos like Thrills, SuperLenny and Kaboo, it became generally available in the third quarter of 2016. Can’t make my mind up whether the theme is underwater or deep space, both with sun rays breaking through from the top. Netent claims that it transcends time and space, giving us an out-of-this-world experience.

 

Remains to be seen if a rather simple looking game with typical slot symbols as well as Multiplier Wild and Free Spins with a random extra feature will be sufficient to elevate us to that level. But, lets not judge the book by its cover, as I usually say and first take a better look at the game.

Slot Details

The game was probably one of the last to be released in Flash format, with Flash 10 or higher needed, before the HMTL5 era was heralded. I am going with the deep-space theme option after looking at it again with a distant light breaking through the darkness from the top. The game window and symbols all appear in neon colors, not my preferred taste but then it doesn’t look too bad either. Graphics and animations are Netent’s crisp and clean standard, no fault to find there.

NRVNA: The Nxt Xperience is a 5-reel, 3-row, 30-pay line (adjustable) video slot with a Multiplier Wild and Free Spins that come with a NRVNA Wheel which will award additional features. Bet sizes go from $0.30 – $150 with the assistance of denominations from $0.01 – $0.50 and bet levels from 1 – 10. TRTP is a rather comfortable 96.6% and the variance I can see being medium to high. The slot is available on desktop, mobile and tablet on all OS platforms.

Pay symbols in ascending order are the 10’s to A’s catalogue plus horse shoe, four-leave clover, bells, seven’s and cherries. Lowest line pay is 5OAK 10’s with 2.33x bet while the top pay is five of a kind “cherries” with 66.6x stake increasing to 7x or 200x stake in the base game if a Multiplier Wild completes the line and up to 2,000x stake in Free Spins. Wilds are star icons on a purple sphere transforming into the word “wild” alternating with x3 multiplier if it completes a winning combination. Scatters are a diamond shape on an orange sphere with minimum three needed trigger the bonus round.

Free Spins Feature

Netent has equipped the game with a Free Spins bonus round that comes with a special feature they call NRVNA Wheel. The amount of Free Spins is based on the number of scatters landing on the screen. 3, 4 or 5 scatters will award 10, 20 an 30 Free Spins respectively. Unfortunately, no pays for scatters, we have to make do with the spins, no massive multiplier for 5 scatters a la Dead or Alive.

The NRVNA wheel becomes visible on top of the game window once the Free Spins start. After every spin it will move into the front and randomly award an additional multiplier or up to 2 extra Free Spins. The multiplier wheel will turn only if the spin revealed a winning combination.

This is the moment where the slot has its highest win potential. Hitting a 5OAK with Wild on the line plus getting a 10x multiplier on the NRVNA wheel will pay already an impressive 70x bet for 5OAK 10’s and a massive 2,000x bet for the cherries.

The options on the NRVNA Wheel are:

  • Winning spin: extra multiplier up to 10x + extra free spins, only one of the options or nothing
  • Non-winning spin: extra free spins or nothing

Multiplier Wild

One of the best features on NRVNA is the Multiplier Wild. In both, base game and Free Spins it will multiply wins by x3 if it lands on the winning pay line. That is a pretty rare sight these days, usually you see them doubling the win, tripling makes it that much more desirable as even the lowest symbol 5OAK will award then 7x bet in the base game.

Final Words

Are we going to transcend to outer space when spinning the reels on NRVNA: The Nxt Xperience™? Hmmm, not really sure, I guess we will be still on earth but could be sitting on a great amount of money after scoring a 30x multiplied win on this slot in Free Spins. Theme and sounds are not really convincing me to give it top marks but the potential for good wins is undeniably present with the two combined multipliers in Free Spins and relatively high pays for 5 of a kind. At the same time it makes the slot more volatile with larger downswings and swift short big winning bursts a medium to high variance game is typically known for.

Hence, I urge some caution when playing NRVNA as it could become a quick balance drainer when in cold mode. The Free Spins feature seems to hit on average every 150 spins, in between it can go sometimes dozens of spins without paying more than 1x stake, hence the caution I mentioned. But, no doubt, it has potential for super mega wins.

 

Good Luck!
