Relax Gaming has taken our Slot of the Week award into outer space on a quest for interplanetary resources with the launch of Space Miners

Relax Gaming has taken our Slot of the Week award into outer space on a quest for interplanetary resources with the launch of its Space Miners title.

With an RTP of 96.47 per cent and a high volatility level implemented within gameplay, this 5×3, 1,000,000-payline video slot incorporates a maximum win potential of up to x50,000 the bet.

Commenting on the launch, Simon Hammon, CPO at Relax Gaming, said: “We are hoping that life on Mars, and beyond, proves to be as fruitful as Elon Musk has suggested it might be. Space travel is always a fun concept to create and we can’t wait for players to enjoy what we think is the best game in the solar system.

“Relax Gaming has created an entire galaxy’s worth of games to date, but we think a wide range of audiences are going to really love Space Miners.”

Starting with the symbols within the game, these include four low-paying gems x0.10, x0.20, x0.30 and x0.40 for three, four, five and six-of-a-kind wins, respectively. These are followed by five square-shaped space miners offering values ranging from x0.60 to x5 for six-of-a-kind wins. 

Furthermore, bonus symbols are used to trigger the free spins bonus, while wild symbols will always expand to fill all open positions on the reel and substitute for all other symbols when evaluating wins.

Additionally, incorporating features such as a free spins bonus, expanding wilds and power-ups, the latter help break through the reels faster with the chances of winning increasing as the reels do. Every normal spin will feature two power-ups and free spins will always start with four. 

Destroying blockers that include a power-up will trigger the respective feature: cross destroys all blockers in a horizontal and vertical line; horizontal destroys all blockers in a horizontal line; vertical destroys all blockers in a vertical line; and 3×3 destroys all blockers in a 3×3 area. It is also possible for power-ups to interact with each other.

Moreover, to activate the free spins bonus, players must collect three bonus symbols during the main game, awarding six spins. Any additional bonus symbols collected will also award two extra spins.

Once the player has entered the free spins round, any blockers that are removed will remain open for the entire feature. Additional bonus symbols collected during the free spins mode will award one extra spin. 

Finally, incorporating a buy feature, players in permitted jurisdictions have the option to purchase the free spins bonus at the cost of x100 the reference bet size.
