Net Entertainment takes you back to the dawn of time with the innovative slot game, Evolution. Quite possibly one of NetENT's most visually stunning works, this 5-reel, 25-payline game is one of the few where the reels spin up the screen instead of from the top down. Evolution also thrills with an exciting Bonus Game in which creatures "evolve" to the next-higher value with every spin.

Evolution is designed for play on Mac, Windows, and Linux..


The playing screen is naturally set underneath the primordial, dark blue water life emerged from. The border surrounding the screen shows a mossy shore with glistening new plant life including mushrooms and sprouts. All of the symbols in the game are represented by creatures on various spots along the evolutionary scale and have creative-sounding names.

The five lower-value symbols begin as a one-celled organism, with each creature increasing a bit in complexity: 10 - Primo blobulus J - Blobulus astrum Q - Jellocus finnum K - Jellocus squidae A - Crustacio springum

Five higher-value symbols also become more complex as their value increases and they have equally entertaining names. They're listed here from lowest to highest value: Albus slugus Bestla dentum Basilisk hairicus Basilisk pluma Draconius rex

Smooth background music features a peaceful, new-age ambiance that marries well with the peaceful vibe of creation. The soothing sound of bubbling water plays when you spin, and wins are celebrated with an exciting burst of futuristic digital music.


Net Entertainment's creativity is evident in many aspects of Evolution, especially in the way that the reels roll from the bottom up instead of from the top down. Each symbol is animated and winning symbols appear to explode in a halo of color.

A basic Wild symbol appears only on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and it substitutes for all other symbols except for the Free Spins. It bounces around gently like a rainbow-hued bubble. The symbol you want to see most often is the Free Spin, whose design is rather like fireflies flittering around the letters, as three or more of these unlock the Evolution Bonus Game.


When you win Free Spins, you appear to zoom up through the water to the surface where various plant life is growing around you. The music also picks up to a rhythmic new-age beat. The number of Free Spins is determined by how many symbols appear. Three, 4, or 5 will earn you 10, 15 or 20 spins, respectively, and wins pay the total bet multiplied by a varying multiplier.

Each winning combination in Free Spin activates the Evolution feature. When this is active, the symbols involved in your win will "evolve" to the next level along with any other matching symbols that weren't part of the winning payline. For example, a Jellocus squidae becomes a Crustacio springum, and the lower-value character is removed from future Free Spins. Over the course of even just 10 Free Spins, this Evolution feature can cause you to rack up some serious coins in a short amount of time.

At the end of the Bonus Game, a giant meteor crashes into the earth, turning everything red in a giant explosion. Then you sink back down beneath the water and play resumes in regular mode.


Evolution's 25 betlines are fixed, so you'll bet on every line with every spin. Ten bet levels afford you some flexibility in betting, and you can choose coin values from 0.01 to 0.50, making your minimum bet 0.25 and your maximum bet 125.00. The maximum coins to win at once is 44,000.


It's odd to think of playing slot games as a peaceful experience, but the experience truly feels so in Evolution. The smooth animation makes even watching the reels flow a delight, and the symbols bounce and sway gently to the ambient background track. All values are clearly displayed and all controls clearly marked, making it easy to stay on top of your current bet and funds. For more ease of play, check out NetENT's advanced autoplay feature, which includes advanced settings where you program the number of spins you want auto-played as well as when they should stop.


You'll find Evolution fully compatible with your Mac, Windows, or Linux powered computer.
