Space Wars Online Slot Basics
Space Wars is an innovative online slot game creation by casino software provider Net Entertainment. The game tells the story of a number of extraterrestrial alien species, who are involved in an intergalactic struggle to attain a powerful red space crystal.
The game includes 5 reels and 40 paylines, and features 4 rows of symbols instead of the typical 3 rows in many slot games. Also included in Space Wars online slots are stacked wilds that appear on reels 2 and 4, and a unique Cloning Pod Re-spin feature that stacks reel symbols on the reels after every win to create more winning combinations.
Game Graphics and Animations
Space Wars is, like its name dictates, set the depths of outer space, against a purple, mauve and dark blue background in which a large planet and a cluster of illuminated asteroids dominate the top left-hand corner of the screen. These planets and asteroids have also been animated to move occasionally in the background, giving the game’s visuals a more lifelike feel. The game’s pay table is futuristic in design, and the slot reels are completely transparent to draw players’ attention to the number of quirky animated characters on the reels.
Each character represents an alien from a separate species, all which are different colours and trigger unique sound effects when involved in a winning combination on the reels. Each alien’s animations also vary when involved in a win, and when a large alien symbol is involved in a win during a re-spin he will wave his gun around enthusiastically.
Space Wars Reel Symbols
On the reels of Space Wars are five different alien species, each of them orange, blue, green, purple or olive in colour. These aliens are all quite different in appearance, and have comical individual facial expressions and physical designs. There is also a ‘Wild’ logo symbol and a cluster of the sought-after red crystals featured in the game’s storyline.
The red crystal logo is also the game’s jackpot payout symbol. Landing 5 of these symbols on an active payline will award players the game’s jackpot of 1,000x the bet. There is no standard scatter symbol in Space Wars.
The Space Wars wild symbol is the white ‘Wild’ logo. This wild symbol appears only on reels 2 and 4, and can substitute all other symbols in the game, appearing in both the base game and during re-spins. This wild symbol is also a stacked wild, which stacks on the reels randomly during the game to create fully wild slot reels.
Cloning Pod Re-spin Feature
The game’s main feature involves the state of the art cloning pod situated to the right of the reels. When a winning combination is landed on the reels, the characters involved in that combination will light up and be transferred to this cloning pod to be duplicated. The next spin will automatically become a free re-spin, and the cloned characters from the cloning pod will be displayed on the reels as stacked symbols to create more winning combinations during the re-spin.
