The big yellow button with two dark pointers dominates the lower-right part of the screen. Use it if you want to activate the 7x6 grid. Next to it, you’ll find a fast forward button that speeds up the spinning animations. On the right side, there’s an auto-play button that allows you to use a certain number of auto-spins. Click on the Stake button to change the total size of the bet. Players can play with as little as €0.20 and as much as €80 per spin. Of course, there are many other values between these two.
On the right side of the screen, you will also find a speaker icon that lets you turn the music on or off and three white lines that will reveal the paytable present in this online slot.
First of all, we should point out that to create a winning combination in the 4Squad slot, you must create a cluster of at least five matching icons that are found on adjacent positions (horizontally or vertically). There are nine basic symbols in this online slot. The least valuable ones come in the shape of playing card suits in different colors. With the help of spades, diamonds, hearts, and clubs, you can win 3, 3.5, 4, or 4.5 times your bet respectively. You will need 20 or more matching icons like that in a cluster to get the highest prizes.
Of course, you can expect even more with the help of the high-paying basic symbols. They are represented by the four superheroes (Quake, Strike, Burst, and Beam) and the Power fist. Thanks to these symbols, you can win up to 5.3, 6, 8.1, 9, or 50 times your bet. There are special symbols too, but they are non-paying symbols.
Players should expect just one 4Squad bonus feature, but it’s an innovative, fun, and potentially lucrative feature. Before we explain how it works and what you can expect from it, we should mention the orb that serves as a wild icon. It can replace any missing symbol to help you finish a winning combination on the grid.
There are four progress bars in this game that are filled whenever you make winning combos with the corresponding superhero. If you fill all these bars, you will not get 4Squad free spins – just a single free spin, but all four superhero features will be active and only high-paying symbols will appear on the screen. This means that you will get a chance for big wins.
If you fill the green bar, you will remove all low-paying symbols and new symbols will come to their place. Once the blue bar is filled, random symbols are swapped with wild icons. In most cases, this will lead to a winning combination. Whenever the red bar is filled, you can expect random symbols to be cloned on the reels. Wait for the yellow bar to get filled if you want to get a multiplier worth between 2 and 10 times your current win.
The good news is that the 4Squad RTP is within (or even slightly above) the industry’s standard. So, players can expect a Return to Player percentage of 95.72% in this online slot. You will also find volatility on a medium level. That means that, theoretically, players should hit wins relatively frequently and the size of their prizes should be decent.
