Galacticons is an extraterrestrial slot by Microgaming and features quite some aliens and planets. What’s more, Galacticons actually is a pretty stylish slot. A lot of time and energy seems to have gone to the animations, the background and the elements surrounding the slot. Even the music on this slot is of much greater quality than we’re used to from this software developer. However, the aspect on which Microgaming has really, totally outdone itself this time is free spins. Namely, spinning for free on Galacticons entails big wins and a special feature which could rightfully be called a black hole. Additionally, the slot has a wild symbol which also could help you win more money, and with that, Galacticons will definitely be worth your while.
How to play Galacticons?
Galacticons is a very simple slot, as long as your doing regular spins, that is. It has a standard layout with its five reels and three rows. Additionally, it has 243 ways to win, which is a very standard number on a slot with a 5×3 playing grid. The symbols you find on the reels are entertaining and the animations are splendid. However, it’s a shame that Microgaming has also used standard symbols in a slot like this. The standard symbols range from the nine to the Ace. The blue circle functions as the wild and can substitute for any other symbol except the scatter. The animation that functions as the scatter is the big red planet. This scatter will -if it shows up in large enough numbers- lead to free spins.
Free spins on Galacticons
Galacticons is equipped with exciting free spins. When at least three scatters land on your reels, you will enter free spins immediately. On Galacticons, free spins are called the Big Bang feature and it doesn’t take long before it becomes perfectly clear why they’ve chosen this name for it. Namely, during free spins, there’s a black hole which constantly moves around from one position to another. This black hole has the capacity to suck up aliens and if it does, it will reward you for witnessing his cruelties. If a scatter lands next to the black hole, it will also be sucked up.
When this happens, you will receive an additional free spin! And this is the only way to get more free spins while already spinning for free. But there’s more. Namely, when a win includes both the wild and the black hole, it will be multiplied by two. This means that you can win quite some money during free spins on Galacticons!
Pay lines on Galacticons
Galacticons has a total of 243 ways to win and no pay lines. The fact that it uses these ways to win is one of the reasons it has become such a success as it makes it so easy to know whether a win is being formed or not. There is no jackpot and it probably also just doesn’t need one. It’s refreshing to see Microgaming trying a little harder on the animations and background music. What’s more, since they have, this slot is one of their best. On the other hand, however, it is a shame that it still uses standard symbols. At the bottom of the slot, you can find all the button you need to alter your wager. Also, you will find the autoplay function down there, which is ideal for if you just want to sit back, relax, and enjoy this online game.
