Iron Dog Studio takes players on an adventure in space with the launch of its gem of a title, Solar Nova.


January 18




Solar Nova is a 9×9, cluster-pays video slot that comes with a maximum win potential of up to x10,000 the bet.




88 – 96 per cent


Symbols in the game include seven gems that are used as the normal pays. With these, the most valuable clusters consist of around 25 symbols, offering x10 to x80 the stake. 

As well as the solar wild in the middle of the grid, rocket wild symbols also appear randomly. All wild symbols substitute for any normal paying symbol and may contribute to more than one cluster at the same time.

When a rocket wild is used in a win, it moves to a random adjacent position and becomes sticky before new symbols are added via the tumble feature. Additionally, each rocket symbol possesses a win multiplier that increases by one when it is used in a winning tumble with no upper limit.


The title includes features such as tumbling wins, solar flare, a free spins mode and a bonus buy option.


Starting with tumbling wins, whenever a winning cluster hits, the tumble feature removes the symbols from the grid allowing new ones to fall into the empty spaces. If new clusters form, the process repeats until no more wins occur.

Meanwhile, with the solar flare feature, on any losing spin in the base game, the Solar wild symbol may randomly transform symbols in its row or column into the same matching symbol. This feature may also even trigger on winning free spins.

Furthermore, at any time of the game, there is also the chance a symbol teleportation feature triggers. When this happens, the rocket wild switches position with a normal pay symbol to increase the chances of a win. If more than one rocket wild is used in the same win, the multiplier values are multiplied together before being applied.

Moving onto the free spins bonus, this is triggered by landing three rocket wilds in the base game, awarding six free spins. During the feature, rockets remain on the grid, moving positions between each spin, with a maximum of four present at the same time. 

Moreover, the solar wild comes with a counter above it. Should this be used in eight winning tumbles, it will trigger the Solar Nova feature, increasing in size to 3×3 for one tumble until returning to its regular size.

Lastly, in jurisdictions where permitted, players have the option to buy directly into the free spins round.
