Gears of time is a 5-reel, 3-row featuring wild substitutions, a time traveling feature, free spins, time charged wilds
As you guessed the game is themed around time travel and forming clusters is the way to trigger time traveling events in this slot game.
During the main game, you play on a 5×5 grid area in which the game will select randomly 5 positions. You form winning combinations by forming clusters and every winning cluster will disappear and new symbols will cascade to take their position. The process repeats itself until there are no winning clusters formed. And of course you get the chance also to land wild symbols which are depicted by a wild charge and will substitute for other game symbols. The latter will assist you in forming winning combinations.
Cool part is that there are also random positions that are visible on the grid. The more clusters you form in any of these random positions are formed the higher the chance to trigger time traveling events. Read further the Gears of time slot game review to find out more.
