Space Spins is a collaboration between Electric Elephant and Microgaming, with the former being the developer of this new slot machine, while the latter serves as the publisher. Microgaming gets exclusivity for this game, so you can only find it at the casinos that they power. The game is filled with cartoon-style cartoons of aliens and planets, humor being an important ingredient here by the looks of it.
The game takes the action to space, and places 40 active lines on its 5 reels. It makes heavy use of wild features, three different ones being part of the action you get inside, and they even become sticky for the free spins. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows with this game though, as its RTP is at a 95% , definitely not as good as in other Microgaming slot releases, even exclusive ones.
Betting and Prizes
Both lower and higher wagers are available in the game, so everyone should be satisfied. You can spend $1 or lower if your budget is limited, but there are also bigger wagers to be placed, if you want to use that option.
I’m not that happy when I see the kind of RTP that’s promised for Space Spins. This Electric Elephant release has its RTP set at 95%, while its major competitors will be above 96% for the most part.
Space Spins Slot Features
This slot machine delivers a large game area for you to play on, which for its big features relies on several types of expanding wilds, and from time to time on free spins as well. You get 5x5 reels, so there are a lot of symbols, and the 40 paylines aren’t as crowded as they might seem at first.
You will discover three variants for the wild features of Space Spins. The game has these symbols appearing on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels.
Rocket Wilds: substitutes which expand vertically, going from the bottom towards the top.
Shooting Star Wilds: these wilds expand on the row, so horizontally, going from the left towards the right side.
Sunburst Wilds: this one splits its expansion to all directions, but it’s limited only to its neighbors, which it transforms into extra wilds.
Besides these wilds, the game also has the scatter symbols on three out of five reels (1, 3 and 5). Should all three scatters appear in a single round, they can give you 8 free spins. In some ways, the free spins aren’t that different from the paid spins, but there is something extra offered inside as well. It’s the wild symbols that are once again the focus here, because this feature will make them sticky. This means that wilds will be around to help you for the entire duration of the feature, if they do trigger for you.
Theme & Design
Space Spins is a cute, cartoon-style alien-themed slot machine. The action places the reels in space, we’re given a large game area with plenty of symbols, and the images chosen for them are very well crafted. You’re seeing alien landscapes in the background, UFOs with one-eyed and horned aliens in them, while on the reels you get similar imagery (aliens, planets, human astronauts), but also a collection of Royals.
I’ve enjoyed the graphics chosen for Space Spins, and the wild features which were implemented for it are also good reasons to see what it’s all about. What is a major downside for it, is the RTP percentage, of just 95%.
