Galacticons slot review
Whether it’s Microgaming’s cracking sci-fi-tinged slot, SpaceBotz, or Cryptologic putting the ‘space’ into ‘spaced out’ with their own cosmic slot, Outta Space, there’s definitely interest for some Close Encounters of the Very Weird Kind.
The developers behind SpaceBotz, Microgaming, have launched another sci-fi tinged slot in the form of Galacticons, a 5 reel slot that carries Microgaming’s trademark 243 ways-to-win. (Sadly, it’s nothing to do with the Real Madrid superstar footballers, the Galacticos.)
243 Ways to Win
This 243-ways system will cost you 30x your coin bet every spin, so if you’re betting at the upper line bet of $5.00, that means a total bet of $150 every spin. It’s definitely not a slot for the faint-hearted.
Win up to 20 Free Spins
On the reels are plenty of wacky, multi-coloured aliens, rocket ships and 10-through-Ace card symbols. Look out for the blue Milky Way symbol, as it acts Wild, substituting for all symbols other than the Scatters. It also pays 2x on all winning combos it helps form. The burning Sun icon, meanwhile, triggers Free Spins when you hit three or more across the reels. 10, 15, or 20 spins are yours depending on how many suns you’ve hit. By the way, five Scatters will award a 30,000-coin jackpot.
Earn Random Wilds with the Black Hole
Random Wilds are assigned to your spins in the form of the Black Hole. They land on the reels, swallow up whatever icon was there, and acts Wild for the duration of your spins. It also moves places at the start of each free spin to mix things up a little. They stay until the free spins are over.
With plenty of juicy free spins (I’m always a stickler for generous free spins) up for grabs, plus a really meaty betting range, there’s plenty to enjoy in Galacticons.
