Low value symbols come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, from 10 through to Ace. These symbols can offer between x0.26 and x0.83 the player’s bet, depending on the amount of matching combinations that land on a single spin. 

Next up, brown, purple, green and blue planets depict the medium value symbols, offering between x0.33 and x2.66 the player’s preferred stake. 

High value symbols are represented by golden stars. If the right amount of winning combinations land at once, these symbols can offer between x0.5 and x3.33. 

Wild text UFOs can drop into play, substituting for all symbols other than the free spins scatter. 

These wilds can randomly become directional wilds, shooting other wilds across the reels in one of eight vertical, horizontal or diagonal directions. Directional wilds will only appear on reels two, three and four.

Finally, the free spins scatter is represented by a red planet. Landing three, four or five scatters on the same spin will provide eight, 12 or 15 free spins in the bonus game mode. 


Each reel contains stacked mystery symbol positions that are replaced with one random low, medium or high value symbol at the beginning of a random spin. 

During the free spins feature, directional wilds can shoot wilds in two different directions, rather than just the one in the base game.  

Each free spin will have a random multiplier, with multiplier values of x2, x3, x4, x5, x8 or x10 available. This multiplier will change on each turn and will apply to all potential payouts on each spin. 

Landing three or more scatter symbols during the free spins game mode will retrigger the bonus game mode. 

Furthermore, players can buy access to eight, 12 or 15 free spins for the price of x60, x90 or x113 their stake respectively. 


Anastasia Bauer, Head of Account Management, Betsoft Gaming, stated: “Expansion is an original take on the spaceship genre. Using a retro art style for the animation and symbol design alongside great mechanics creates an instantly engaging experience. 

“Players will be entranced by the game’s development as well as delighted with the payouts. The broad betting range and medium volatility give universal appeal so we are confident that Expansion will be our next big hit.”
