worldmatchWorld Match has announced its new multi-line slot named “Contraption”, which the company say will “revisit science-fiction adventures” and time travel – made possible due to “new mechanical instruments”. Hmm Sounds pretty mysterious to us.

The company excitedly declared in a press release today that its brand new slot will enable players to experience “the thrill of travelling back and forward in time, directly from the comfort of their houses”.

A Spin Stop feature will enable the player to stop the spin at any time, increasing the frequency of play during the session and his/her chances to win. There’s also a Bonus Game where players can win additional prizes if the combination of symbols for Bonus Game appears – opening six fob watches to win the sum of all the corresponding amounts.
