Space Race Review
While you’d be right in thinking that this game revolves around a space theme, there’s also much more to it than that. With the chance to guide your own rocket through a hazardous meteor storm and with free spins on offer, Space Race is one free slots game that you’re not going to want to miss out on.
Luckily, this game’s also available on mobile and tablet devices, so you can jet off to space whenever and wherever you feel like it.
Even though you will venture to space in this game by Play n' Go, you’ll be pleased to know that Earth will still be in your sights, as the moon, an astronaut and the Earth will all be seen during this game.
Zaps and beeps will be heard throughout this game, which just adds to the exciting feeling that you’re embarking on a heroic space mission to save planet Earth.
Gamers have the chance to choose how many of the 20 paylines they want in play, how many coins they want on each payline and the value of these coins. This allows for all players, from wannabe astronauts to fully fledged space invaders, to tailor this game to their budget with minimum bets of $0.20 and maximums of $18.75 per spin.
The lowest-paying symbols in this game are the card symbols (yes, this is even the case with slots games in space), while the Earth and the probe pay up to 500 coins and the astronaut up to 1,000 coins for five of a kind.
More astronomical prizes are won when you get the wild icon on your reels, as these provide up to 5,000 coins for five of a kind, as well as any other winning prizes when it works with a combination on another payline.
The meteor storm is the scatter symbol, and when five of these appear on your reels you won’t be diving for cover, as they offer you up to 300x your total spin amount.
Don’t be fooled by the “warning” sign either, as it is this that will trigger the bonus round, and the rocket will trigger the other feature.
A Race to Space
For the first bonus feature, you’ll need three or more rockets to appear on your reels. This will trigger a bonus game where you’ll have to guide your rocket through a meteor storm.
With cool 3D graphics in place, you’ll be presented with a grid and will have to choose where you want your rocket to go on this grid. Meteors will then start flying and crashing; if they miss you, you’ll be awarded a prize and will be taken to the next round.
There is a shield that will protect you from your first meteor strike, but as the grids get smaller with each round, it does become more of a challenge.
Three or more warning symbols will initiate the other bonus game, and during your free spins these icons will turn into extra wilds, helping you to create more winning combos.
All in all, Space Race is full of rocket-fuelled fun.
