The Captain Shockwave slots game can be found at casinos offering Genii software. Genii is one of the newer software developers in the online gaming market. Alongside many of the smaller casino software providers Genii focus heavily on slots games. The House Edge/RTP of the Genii slots games is sometimes listed within the paytable for the newer games in their catalogue. For the older games, as Genii is partnered with UK licensed operators and the UKGC license requires the publication of this information, RTP figures can be found on numerous casino sites. As such we know that the house edge for Captain Shockwave is 5%.
Big Game is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The game plays over 50 paylines, playing from left to right.
Wild – The Wild symbol is “Captain Shockwave”. The “Captain Shockwave” symbol will substitute for all symbols other than the Free Spins and Scatter symbols. Any win with a Wild symbol will be doubled. The “Captain Shockwave” symbol is also the most valuable symbol in the game, with 5 of them as part of a winning payline earning you 6000 coins.
Free Spins– The “Dog” symbol is the Free Spins symbol. 3 or more will trigger the game’s Free Spins feature.
Scatter – The “Boy” is the game’s Scatter symbol, meaning that 3 or more will pay out regardless of paylines. 5 will win you 100 coins.
Free Spins – Landing 3 of the “Dog” symbols will award you with 10 Free Spins. 4 of the “Dog” symbols will award you with 15 Free Spins. 5 of the “Dog” symbols will award you with 20 Free Spins. Free Spins can be re-triggered during the feature and all wins are multiplied by 4.
Captain Shockwave is Genii’s first attempt at a superhero game. Captain shockwave uses the power of something or other to produce shockwaves that I can only imagine blow his opponents off their feet. The game fails to live up to the concept, looking far from inspiring. The symbols lack detail, the background is also lacking in any substance, all of which means that the game looks seriously underwhelming. This is a big disappointment as anything involving super heroes really needs to blow our socks off these days. The features also fail to grab the attention, with wilds, free spins and scatter symbols, but nothing within those features to add some extra playability. The house edge isn’t the highest we’ve seen but it is still a fair bit higher than we would really want it to be. All in all, I would not recommend this game. If it is super heroes that you are after there are far better games out there offering more excitement and better value for money than this.
