Battlestar Galactica game tells the story of a warship that is tasked to protect what remains of the human civilization, after a savage attack of the Cylons on their planets. The TV series that started airing in 2005 is the one that inspired this slot machine, not the original one from the 70s. Slot developers will often choose a TV series or a movie to create a slot machine based on it, after getting the official license and permission to do so. Microgaming is the developer that managed to obtain the license for this popular science fiction series. This game is modern, sports 243 ways to win, and can pay $3,750 at most, before any multipliers get a chance to work their magic.
Betting and Prizes
As any other slot with ways to win will do, this one also asks you to use a certain number of virtual win lines, 30 in this case, so you don’t have to wager on each individual way to win. 30 to 300 coins are used, with 1 to 10 coins per line, and with denominations that reach a maximum of $0.25. The line bet is at $2.50, while the maximum wager is worth $75.
The paytable values change each time you modify your wager, so it’s going to be easy to figure out how much you can win. With a $75 wager, the largest reward is at $3,750. It might seem low, but it’s a pretty standard figure for a game which doesn’t have regular paylines.
Battlestar Galactica Slot Features
One of the things to keep in mind here is that from time to time you will have various game modes trigger, bringing you different types of features along. You might get the Ion Storm, which turns 1 to 5 reels into wild versions. There is also another mode called Run, where you form combinations starting from both sides, or Fight, where you get free spins and split wilds.
If you’re interested in the more common types of features, the wild is present, sports the logo of the Battlestar Galactica ship, and it will pay $1,500 if you form its combo of five symbols. Otherwise, the wild comes in stacked on the 1st reel and acts as a substitute for others.
The Fighter is the scatter of the game. Paying the largest amount, up to $3,750, it offers its features and prizes by appearing anywhere on the five reels. Get 3 or more, and you will be rewarded with 15 free games and a 3x multiplier.
Theme & Design
The design of Battlestar Galactica online slot is quite impressive, featuring images with many of the actors which were also part of the show. Get a winning combo, and a short video sequence starts up, with something that happened in the series with that character. Unfortunately, they couldn’t resist and they used poker cards as well for some of the symbols.
Give Battlestar Galactica a try, and you can do it for its features and graphics as well, not just for the choice of theme. I wouldn’t expect a huge payout out of it though, just a lot of smaller ones.
