HOW TO PLAY SPACE MINERS
Space Miners starts out as quite simple. There are 6 reels with 3 rows. Your job is to arrange matching symbols from left to right, starting with the leftmost reel. There are no fixed Space Miners paylines – the symbols simply need to be on adjacent reels to record as a win. This means that there are initially 729 ways to win. All of this is a fairly common slot mechanic these days, but the best is yet to come.
As we already noted, you’re here to mine asteroids. In practice, this means that winning symbols will destroy the rock tiles in the blocked rows. Symbols that are part of winning combinations will destroy any blocker tile next to them. You are then awarded an automatic respin whether you destroyed any blocker tiles or not. With every respin, all symbols are removed from the grid, and new ones tumble down to replace them.
This means that a single spin can keep winning for as long as the tumbling symbols keep forming winning combinations. Better yet, the more respins you get, the bigger the further the reels will expand. Destroy enough blockers, and you can end up with up to 10 rows and a million ways to win!
Relax Gaming Space Miners effectively conveys a feeling of “mining” for more rows and better rewards. Especially because multiple matching symbols on a reel contribute to the winnings multiplicatively. This means that opening up more rows increases both your chances of winning and the size of the payouts!
