Play’n Go is constantly pushing the envelope on new video slot games. With Space Race, you can tell right from the introduction that you are in store for something quite impressive. The graphics are very impressive, and the sounds give you a glimpse of what is must be like to travel in a rocket towards outer space. As impressive as the graphics, it isn’t until you experience one of the bonus games that you will really feel like you have taken flight on your way to exploding your bankroll.
The first thing you need to do before strapping into the rocket ship is to understand all the different symbols that are flying around in Space Race. The low paying symbols are the Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and Ten symbols. The rest of the symbols pay significantly higher amounts of money. They start at the moon, then the earth, the satellite, and the astronaut. Getting 5 of these symbols on a payline will reward you nicely, but it is the bonuses in Space Race that will give you the best chance of hitting it big time.
The scatter symbol is the meteor shower, and 3 or more of these symbols will send you to the free spin bonus round. This is not your average bonus round by any means. Once the free spins are about to begin, five large flaming meteors will come crashing down each reel, destroying all the symbols and replacing them with new ones. The entire game shakes and rattles during the free spin feature, simulating what it must feel like in a rocket being bombarded by these giants. Each spin begins with the flaming meteors crashing down onto the reels until all your free spins are exhausted.
The next feature of Space Race is when you get 3 or more of the bonus capsules on the screen. You are them transported to space where the communication center tells you that you must successfully land your ship on the moon to score the jackpot. In order to land the ship, you need to avoid all the meteors. The first part of this bonus feature, you are shown a grid, where you must position your vessel. Meteors then slam into the grid, hopefully avoiding your ship. Each successful mission gets you closer to the moon, and to a smaller grid with less choices. Get past all the grids and land on the moon, you get a huge bonus in your bankroll.
The Space Race wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols. Land 5 of these wilds, score 5000 coins for your efforts. Set the autoplay feature on Space Race and get comfortable in your chair as you blast off into space with the chance to really grab some serious coins. This game looks and sounds like the real thing, with plenty of excitement around every turn.
