When someone mentioned that BetSoft would be coming out with a new game entitled 'Event Horizon' last year or so, my first thought was of the movie of the same name. That was a science fiction movie, about time-space-warp theories that not everyone would enjoy nor appreciate. When the game came out, there was nothing about time, there was nothing about space, there was nothing about warping. The only common thing the movie and the game shared, was time - time required to watch the movie and time required to play the game. Is that good or bad? Well, if you have the time, then read on! Hehehe.
One came from NetEnt, one came from BetSoft. Similarly with another similarity, there was Starburst and there was Fruit Zen. Which one I like more? Aah! Hands up who know me well enough! Hmm, too bad I can't see the hands, but anyway, my award goes to Fruit Zen. So, one up for BetSoft! Hehehe. And what about Twin Spin and Event Horizon? Aah! Hands up who know my answer! Hmm, still can't see those hands. Ah well, maybe none went up anyway. Hahaha.
The competition between Twin Spin and Event Horizon is exactly the same as with Starburst and Fruit Zen. NetEnt has the upper hand in all cases, because their promotional and publicity activities are so much more aggressive than BetSoft's. Try and look for this Event Horizon game in casinos, and you can hardly find them. Twin Spin is like everywhere, in every department store! Hahaha. But I'm not concerned with all that. What's more important to me is how they both compare, and which would be better to play.
Paytable wise, both games have identical win values, no differences at all, everything are exactly the same! Graphics wise, Twin Spin uses 2D presentation, Event Horizon uses 3D renditions, so Event Horizon looks more attractive and appealing than Twin Spin! Game play wise, well, this is to individual preferences and tastes, as usual. But had BetSoft gone really aggressive like what NetEnt did, my vote would certainly go for Event Horizon! Right now, every player has played Twin Spin, every player has fallen in love with Twin Spin, Twin Spin can be found easily, Twin Spin can be played in many favourite casinos, so Event Horizon loses on all these counts!
I have only played several hundreds of spins on Event Horizon, but many more spins on Twin Spin, so I cannot really conclude a more reliable comparison between the two. What I've noticed so far, is that Event Horizon can go as much as 17 spins without paying anything at all. Twin Spin can go 20 spins and more! Just as with Starburst and Fruit Zen too. So the fact is, Event Horizon pays more regularly and more frequently than Twin Spin can. Which would and could pay more?
Theoretically, both are identical! Practically, I really don't know! Each game's RTP may not be the same, each game's configuration may not be the same, so even identical games like these two may not play and pay in exactly the same way! Some may prefer Twin Spin more, some may prefer Event Horizon more. For me, none has my preference at this point in time.
