Space Spins Slot Review
Micorgaming recently released yet another new slot, which came as a result of collaboration with Electric Elephant. Space Spins, a five-reel, 40-payline video slot will take you on a cosmic adventure, where you will have plenty of close encounters of the third kind and where you can win up to 300 times the bet in a single spin. There are four kids of Wilds on the offer, which expand horizontally, vertically, on adjacent positions. The Free Spins feature is the central attraction, offering 8 freebies with Wilds that stick around once they appear on the reels.
The reels are set on a different planet and you will come across plenty of aliens in their space ships. First, we will talk about the Wilds. There is the standard Wild, which substitutes for all other symbols, and the expanding Star Wilds, Rocket Wilds and the Sun Wild. The Scatter appears only on reels 1, 3 and 5 and triggers the Free Spins features. The Astronaut is the regular symbol that pays the most, followed by the Blue Alien, Green Alien, the Red Planet (we think its Mars) and the Flying Saucer. J-A playing cards are used as low-paying symbols.
Fortunately for all of us, Microgaming and Electric Elephant decided to introduce human rules in the 2019 release, which made it easier for spinners to play the Space Spins video slot. The Microgaming title features five reels, five rows and benefits from 40 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts. Betting starts at £0.20 per spin and the biggest possible wager cannot go over £100 per single spin. If you like to sit back and explore the strange planet, activate up to 100 automatic spins in Autoplay. If you like to speed things up a bit, activate the Turbo mode.
Now, we will continue talking about Wilds in this section, but first, let us say a few words about the Free Spins feature. Land three Scatters on reels 1, 3 and you will get 8 freebies. The feature is played in a cockpit, while your space ship roams the vast cosmos and everything is happening very fast. During the feature, you can also land four kinds of Wilds, but this time the Wilds will become sticky. The Rocket Wild will expand vertically, from top to bottom, securing you more Wilds on the reels. The Star Wild expands horizontally, from left to right, while the Sun Wild expands to all adjacent cells. Even the regular Wild can transform itself into one of these three expanding Wilds from time to time. All Wilds that land will remain sticky for the remainder of the feature.
When talking about payouts, they are not as great as we hoped they would be. The Wilds offer the most, 7.5 times the bet for five of a kind. The maximum payout gamers can expect is set at 300 times the bet. The Astronaut is the highest-paying regular symbol, offering 5 times the bet for the maximum combination. Space Spins’ RTP is 95%.
Space Spins on Mobile
The visuals are not as impressive as in other Microgaming titles, but they are good enough to offer the same gaming experience on any device. Space Spins is playable across all compatible gadgets, desktop or mobile and you can explore different planets from your chairs or on the go, it is entirely up to you.

Set in outer space on a strange planet, the 2019 release boasts simple cartoonish graphics and a fitting soundtrack. The best part of the story are the four kids of Wilds, which can really help you land big wins, both in the base game and the Free Spins feature. There are only 8 freebies on the offer, but, if Lady Luck is on your side, you may fill the cells with sticky Wilds and win up to 300 times the bet in a single spin. Space Spins is not the best Microgaming has to offer, but it is a quite decent slot.
