Escape to deepest space
The reels are set in deep space, with the game title across the top and a few stars and planets in the background. The reels feature brightly coloured, jaunty symbols, starting with the 9-A playing card symbols and followed by a moon, satellite and ringed planet, and in top place, a rocket and a moon-lander, each paying out a whopping 1500x on five or more in a row.
Make a bet on the space race
Making a bet in Merkur's Spacemen is about as easy as clicking Spin. In fact, it's a one-step process that takes all of about three seconds. Simply choose a bet amount from £0.05 to £10, which is across all five paylines. Then, all you need to do is spin to win. Alternatively, just hit Max Bet to make a £10 bet. There's no Autospin in Spacemen, so you'll have to keep hitting that spin button each time you want to see those reels spin again.
The Black Hole Wild not only pays out massively on its own account, but it also substitutes every other symbol, apart from the Scatter, helping you achieve those payline wins sooner. In fact, when it acts as part of a winning payline, it doubles the wins on that payline - a great little feature that can really add to those wins. The Scatter, an Astronaut, again pays out big when it appears three or more times on a payline, but it also triggers 15 free spins when three or more appear anywhere on the reels. During free spins, symbols are all played as scatters, which means three or more of any symbol matching anywhere on the reels will pay out as if they were on a payline.
One of the major draws of this game is that the wins are surprisingly big, should you get five or more of a Wild, Scatter, or the top earning symbols. Apart from that however, it’s a pretty accessible and low impact game, with an easy to grasp format and some playful retro graphics.
The space theme is an eternally popular one, especially with those of us who grew up in the 1970s or those of us hoping to be one of the first passengers on a commercial moon rocket. Whether you're familiar or new to the free slots world, have a spin on Spacemen today, and you never know, you may be able to sign up for that trip to the moon, after all!
