Hello to all the gamblers my next review for evolution which is a net entertainment slot 25 pay lines, minimum bet 25 cents per spin. I have played from time to time this slot and in general I think is a nice slot if you are lucky ,the main problem I face with this slot is that I am always losing ,I never found it hot ,I hope soon I will find it hot and will return my losses I have playing it. The slot reminds a little bit of elements maybe is the graphics or the music but in general I think they look like.
My latest experience at this slot was a loss ,I started spinning having 50 euro to my balance and after some times I found my self having only 15 Euros left to my balance I continue spinning and I hit 3 scatters and I 10 free spins ,my winnings were 1and half euro lol ,I continue spinning and I hit again 3 scatters this time I won around 5 Euros ,at the end I lost all my balance .
The features of the slot are the free spins if you hit 3 scatters you win 10 free spins ,4 scatters 15 free spins and 5 scatters 20 free spins, during free spins there is the feature evolution, were each winnings combination and all the same symbols will evolve in a higher pay symbol level ,it can really give you a nice win if lucky, but when I won free spins which I found really hard to do so I do not have much luck
Well is a nice looking slot with a nice feature during free spins so I recommend it but personally I prefer other slots most of the times ,if I had to rate this slot I would have given it 7 out of 10
Good luck to all the gamblers with a lot of winnings, review Arestis 80

Evolution by Netent is one of the most advance slot in terms of graphics and sound and it has feel of evolution of life from below the sea to the animal living on land thousands of years ago. It is a 25 liner slot that has 5 reels and symbols enclosed in jelly fish like skins. Now coming to the point, the returns are only average for the base game. You will have to toil, spin again and again to get a good winning combination. Low to high roller game is possible but generally it should be kept low to have plenty of play time so that you have more probability of activating free spin bonus round. Free spin bonus round gets activated when you 3 or more free spin symbols on the reels giving you 10, 15 and 20 free spins for 3,4 or 5 scatters. 4 and 5 scatters are next to impossible and 3 scatters also occur very rarely. But once you get free spins , you have chances to compensate for the base game and over it, win something to take away too. I have activated this feature only once since i have started playing on this slot though in fun play i have activated it 3 to 4 times... Only time i activated it i won $45 on a bet of $0.02 ( i bet generally 0.02 on this slot) winning 2250 coins in free spins. This is possible because of the evolution feature which activated when you get winning combination in free spin round and the symbols that cause winning combination evolves to a symbol higher in evolution series or suppose three "J" form a winning combination then these gets converted to "K" paying higher amount of money. 5 of a kind in such case results in huge wins or even 4 of kind may pay you as much as 200 to 500 coins. But apart from this free spin round, i find the game has very less to offer for the invested money. If netent could introduce a new bonus round in this games sequel , i am sure i would be the first one to play that..lol.. But overall i would rate this graphic rich slot with decent to good returns an 8 on 10.

Evolution is one of the best netent game in my eyes. First of all, this game has amazing graph, i can place it on second place after elements, and to be honest i am not sure, which one from this two slots better in case of beaty, elements or evolution. Both looks amazing, and why even judge them, better just open and enjoy. One thing that i did not like in this game it is base game. It is really annoying and boring, because it is impossible to get some nice win in base game, if only 5 scatters which will pay 100 x total bets. But i never had this 5 scatters, but spend on this slot more than 50 hours total, and this is a lot of time i think. My best result - 433 x total bet after freespins, triggered by 3 scatters. Number of scatters very important on this game, because more scatters - more freespins. In freespins lowest symbol after they appear on winning combination change to better, till the end when all creatures will become best paying symbols, and when all cards symbol becomes aces. Freespins features is really unique, and i never see something like this at any other slot. Also it is always fantastic to see how many best paying symbol comes to reel, and then boom, big win on the screen, and nice sounds. Unfortunately sometimes freespins not want to evolution, and result of freespins is poor, but of course they simple can not pay all the time to us.
Conclusion: From the all sides this is great and interesting game. Perfect graphic and perfect feature idea from netent allow me to give this slot 8 stars, i can give 9, but base game is simple not interesting at all, boring, annoying, without any fun. You playing to get freespins only, and this is of course not good.

basic information about slotThis game was released from 2012 year, or 2011. I play this game frequently on many casinos, and i like it!
idea of the slot Idea of slot is evolution of ancient orgranism, and this game has underwater theme. Interesting theme and good looking slot at all.
freespins and bonus gameThis slot have no any bonus games in the paytable, but it is possible to get freespins. For freespins i need to get 3 or more scatters. 3 scatters will award with 10 freespins, 4 scatters award 15 freespins ,and 5 scatters award 20 freespins. On this slot number of freespins is very important, because the more spins i have, more chances i have to win big. Freespins on this slot is unique, and i never see on any other slot this feature, every picture can evolve to more good paying in this slot. It is possible to achieve only two pictures during the spins - best paying squirell, and Aces. I have this few times, and my win was more than 400x bet size, and cool that i get it from only 10 spins. For 20 spins i think it is possible to achieve unique big win, because it is possible have many spins with best pictures. I never hit 5 scatters on this game, few times 4 scatters but wins was really bad because i did not get nice evolution.
personal gameplayMy gameplay is good with this slot, i like to play this game while i have active bonus on my account, i think it is easy clear bonus with this game. Biggest freespins feature for me was around 500 euro, but i am not remember my bet size. Also this slot usually gives me wins of 100 - 200 euros. Very good and interesting slot, but sometimes it is hard to get scatters for freespins.
best place to play Redbet, whitebet, heypoker, betsafe, and many others netent casinos.

I quit shortly from playing at BetSoft, Microgaming and iSoftBet casinos yet to enter again after a long time in a NetEnt casino . Evolution is one of the slots here that has 25 paylines, and whose graphics quality is very close to that of the number one choice slot in NetEnt „Elements: The Awkening“. Beside this superlative appearance quality, when it comes to the general game playing in my opinion this slot is still average.
The theme of the slot is the evolution of different creatures on Earth starting from marine life and advancing towards terrestrial life. All symbols pay here from 3 upwards, but while marine creatures pay small amounts, the amounts paid by terrestrial creatures are bigger (since they are more evolved). The „Wild“ symbol is very, very rare in this game (about a Wild is present once every 3-5 spins). The slot has one feature, namely the Free Spins and the symbols that trigger this round have here also the role of scatter, paying anywhere on the screen from 2 upwards. The number of free spins is 10, 15 or 20 ( given by 3, 4, or 5 Free Spins-Scatter symbols) and the winnings acquired during this round do not differ too much from the amount earned during normal spins. During the Free Spins round the so-called „Evolution Feature" is triggered. It consists in advancing the quality of all the symbols contained in a winning line (which eventually can lead to higher wins). But if you're not lucky, a Free Spins round (got about once every 100 normal spins) will not help too much here.
As I said with 25 paylines the total minimum bet is 25 cents. At this bet one should expect that on average about once every 3 spins, to have a gain of somewhere between 15 and 50 cents. Thus, on the overall the slot is a loser and the losses although not very large, are significant (at 25 Euro/100 spins played, one will loose on the average between 5 and 7 Euro) .
To make a brief summary, the slot is good due to excellent graphics but in terms of earnings generally offered is average compared to other NetEnt slots. Moreover, at least I have not been particularly attracted by the rats on the screen (which here represents a step in the evolution of terrestrial living things).

Evolution is a 25 Payline video slot from NetEnt that always gives me the knack to play it. It almost gives me the same interest I have with the slot Elements: The Awakening, they both have their unique way of expressing their styles! What makes me interested about Evolution is the fact that there is one feature that potentially can bring about mega wins with the start of just 10 Free spins. It can be more free spins for scatters higher than 3! I love the way scattered Free Spins symbols land especially the very last one, as if making a sound from a cannon or from a gun although I think that exact sound should sound more slower, louder by 20% while it echoes...that way it makes triggering the free spins more treasured , dramatic and epic. I would definitely lean against my computer waiting for suspense to kick in then I would expect optimistic results coming from matched symbols on the reels! The second the free spins became real the screen moves upward to show a place brimming with life, then later showing me I've won 10 free spins. There are no multipliers on this feature but...the symbols which evolve say for example, from a 10 symbol will become a Jack. Any symbol upgrades by one higher symbol until it reaches the highest symbol, the Draconius Rex. I always get amazing wins from free spins and the way it wins and goes to a point where a bunch of same symbols comes rushing on the reels! The biggest win I've had for only $1 is $163. There were so many Draconius Rex symbols on every reel giving me two 5 of a kind symbols, one on a "W" payline and another on a "V" shaped! I was literally cheering for more! It turned into a chain reaction of winning symbols if the reels are cooperating aggressively! The Wilds inside the feature is a major big help I'll tell you that! Another reaction stirred itself the moment I saw the meteor destroy that "place" filled with life. It was like a moment where for example my hard worked is completed such as a project or something I built for a long time then it gets destroyed by something or someone unexpectedly giving me the words, " NNNOOOOO!!! All my hard work!!!". It's all good knowing I made large winnings in the free spins after the meteor hit :) ! Evolution by surprise gets a 9.5 out of 10!

Hello! What will you think if i told you that i know slot which has amazing sounds, amazing graphics, and very interesting freespins round? Of course first you think - you will want to play this slot. And i present to you evolution! This is my one of the favorite online slot, i love it so much, but like with many others slots, i had amazing runs with it, and i had bad runs with it.
Evolution not so interesting in the base game, excepting the people who really enjoying not only with big wins, but enjoyning graphic that your eyes will love, and sounds your ears will love. But honestly paytable in the base game is pretty low, and i never had wins over x100 total of my bet in the base game. But freespins... For 3 scatters you get 10 freespins, for 4 scatters 15, and for 5 scatters 20 freespins. In freespins you can watch evolution of the symbols. It means, you get freespins and on first spin you landed three of a 'ten' symbols. Now all symbols 'ten' will be a jacks till the end of freespins. And this is with every symbol, so if you enough lucky, you can get 3-4 spins on which will be only aces and best paying symbol on the reels! Yeah... I had few such bonus rounds, and believe me this is great feeling to see such spins, every spin - very big win, like 100-200x of your total bet. But if you will be very lucky, imagine you had 10 such spins... Oh, i never personally see such thing, but i believe this is possible, and this is of course increase my interesting in this slot.
I say big thank you to net entertainment for this slot, i love it, i love everything with it, and of course i want to ask you a question: ' why you still reading this and do not made deposit and start playing this slot' ?

Evolution is one of the best slots available on the net in terms of graphics and innovation. Does it however reach the same height in terms of entertainment and wins? I think every software provider, Net Entertainment in this case, should strive to offers the best type of games with exciting features and graphics which make players come back.

When I first saw this slot I wasn't too sure what to think of it, except that I often mistook it for another NetEnt game - Elements the awakening. Both games have a similar type of look, and names for that matter. So I was easily confused in the beginning.

Evolution has 25 paylines in total and 5 reels. Each reel has three rows while the game also features wilds, which can replace other symbols except the free spin symbol of course. The wilds only appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. All symbols in the Evolution slot are made up from primitive creatures.

The paytable shows what they are called, but I simply have no clue what these terms mean lol. The symbols resemble squirrels, rats, frogs, snails and piranhas. The best paying symbol is that of the squirrel.

Something to really look forward to is the free spins in this game. You need at least 3 free spins symbols to unlock this feature. Depending on the number of symbols this number can increase to 20 free spins. I once had 4 of those symbols awarding me 15 free spins.

During free spins the symbols of a winning combination will simply vanish and be replaced by a higher paying symbol. I think this is quite unique and haven't seen anything like this before from Net Ent, or other software providers - simply brilliant.

This slot doesn't have the potential to award huge prizes like some other games, but it does however award smaller prizes very often. My biggest hit on this game was during free spins, hitting 220x bet size thanks to various squirrels and some wilds.

During base game it often gives you 1x up to 5x bet size. If NetEnt created a better paytable I'm sure this game would rang among the crème de la crème of NetEnt slots.

My final rating for Evolution is 8/10.
