To start this pixelated retro adventure, you’ll need to place a bet first. Your options go between £0.20 and £40 per spin. The higher your bet, the higher the Multipliers in play. Max your bet out, and you’ll benefit from great Multipliers that can spice your spins up.
While it looks like a retro arcade game more than a slot, the mechanics are deeply rooted in slot games. You spin the reels by hitting the big button on the right. The sixth reel from below will then spin to reveal the different space crafts that shoot the rocks on the screen. There are various types – some shoot only once, others shoot 3-4 beams that can destroy several rock symbols. The most powerful are the white/red ones that shoot a blast that clears a reel in full, which can be handy if there are Modifiers on the reel.
The base game action mostly revolves around the two metres that flank the reels. On the left, you have a green metre that fills whenever a double rock symbol is destroyed. The red one on the right fills in the same way. Once full, the green metre will permanently update your fleet. There are 4 space crafts in it – the ones that shoot only one beam are most common, while those that clear full reels are less common. If you’re lucky, the green metre will add another one of the less common spacecraft in your fleet, increasing your chances at clearing reels easily and delivering better rewards.
When the red metre is full, it will add a unique Modifier to the grid. It can be a Multiplier or another kind of Modifier that aims to improve your wins.
