Northern Lights and Microgaming team up again, this time to bring you the unique Timelines, a slot based on wormholes, time travel, and a whole bunch of other concepts science is still trying to fully understand. This sci-fi inspired slot is visually exquisite, with futuristic imagery and a dark, yet striking colour scheme.
The 5x3 reel set stands in front of a wormhole which adds a sparkling purple to the colour scheme of the slot’s theme. Looking past the imagery, the gameplay is excellent too, with the unique timeline feature that allows you to travel back to the past as symbols from previous spins are added to the current reel set. Add to that, an impressive free spins feature and the possibility of multipliers on each spin, not to mention a potential max jackpot of up to 9,500x your bet.

How To Play Timelines
How to Set Your Stake
You’ll see a row of game icons on the right-hand side of the screen, one of which is a stack of coins. Pressing this icon will reveal a screen displaying all the available bet values you can choose from. Simply pick your chosen stake per spin value, this will be in place until you alter it, which you can do before any spin.
How to Spin the Reels
Once your bet value is set, press the central icon, which is also the largest, to place the bet and spin the reels.
Timelines Bonus Features
The centrepiece of the bonus features included with the Timelines slot is the titular Timelines Bonus. There are five mini reel sets above the main reels, which will fill with symbols as spins occur, so the results of your last five spins will always be displayed above the reelset. If you land a clock symbol on the main five-reel game grid, up to 15 symbols are pulled down into the main reelset for the chance at extra wins.
Not only can these be regular symbols, but they can also be multipliers or scatter symbols which can help trigger Epic Strike. The Epic Strike feature is another perk of the Timelines slot and triggers when three or more diamond scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels. These scatters will give a payout, from 1x your bet for three symbols, all the way up to 4,000x your stake if you land 10 symbols on the reels.
Three wormhole scatters and you’ll enter the Timelines free spins feature, you’ll get 10 spins and both multiplier symbols (which take the place of wilds in this slot). Clock symbols are more likely to land in this feature, giving the chance for more triggers of the other features.
21.co.uk Review of Timelines
It isn’t often that a slot appears in the iGaming world that could be considered truly unique, but Timelines manages to be exactly that. Not only is the time travel theme and associated design different from anything else you’re likely to find, the Timeline feature with its mini reels displaying previous spins adds to the originality of the game.
Add to this an instant jackpot of up to 4,000x your bet, and the free spins feature with its increased chance of landing multipliers on any spin, and Northern Lights Gaming and Microgaming has created a classic.
Microgaming, one of the most prolific developers in the online casino industry, has no shortage of other options to take a spin with, we’d suggest starting off with Thunderstruck II, Immortal Romance, and Shamrock Holmes Megaways.
