Cosmic Cat & Sonic Boom · August 27, 2014

Normally when we review a space & science fiction themed slot, we discuss just one online slot. In this section we will be taking a look at two online slots. They are both recognised as classic slots and they were both developed by an award winning online casino software provider called Microgaming.

The two slots that we will be taking a look at here include Cosmic Cat and Sonic Boom. They can both be launched instantly in your browser over Microgaming’s non-downloadable Flash casino platform, or from within Microgaming’s impressive download client. Both of these classic slots can be found in approximately 90 perfectly secure Microgaming powered casinos.

Cosmic Cat has 3 reels and 1 winning payline. The symbols consist of Single Bars, Double Bars, Triple Bars, Mice and Cats. You can play with 1 or 2 coins per spin and this means that the lowest cost per spin will set you back just 0.25 coins and the maximum cost per spin will set you back 50.00 coins.

Therefore this slot is ideal for low rollers and for high rollers. The Cat is the Wild Symbol on this slot and it will substitute all of the other symbols on the reels and the top prize to play for is worth 1000 coins. Cosmic Cat is available in the real money mode and in the free play demo mode.

The other slot, Sonic Boom, also allows you to play with 1 or 2 coins per spin. The lowest cost for just one spin starts from as little as 0.05 coins and the most that you can spend on one spin is 50.00 coins. The symbols on the reels include Cherries, Single Bars, Double Bars, Triple Bars, Supersonic Jets and also the Sonic Boom Symbol.

The Sonic Boom Symbol on this slot is also the Wild Symbol and it will substitute all of the other symbols on the reels. The top prize to play for on this slot is 2500 coins. Whenever a Wild Symbol helps to form a new winning combination, that prize will automatically be doubled and if two Wild Symbols help to generate a line win, that prize will automatically be quadrupled.

If you want to play on either of these classic slot machines right now, you can find them over at several top Microgaming casinos such as Gaming Club Casino, Spin Palace Casino, Jackpot City Casino, Ruby Fortune Casino, Crazy Vegas Casino, Euro Palace Casino, Royal Vegas Casino, All Slots Casino, Golden Riviera Casino and Betway Casino.

Big Bang · August 6, 2014

Big Bang first appeared online back in January 2013 and it can now be found in more than 150 NetEnt powered online casinos around the world. “Big Bang continues our tradition of creating best-of-breed video slot games for the online casino market,” said NetEnt’s Chief Product Officer, Simon Hammon, at the time of its release.

This could be classed as a UFO themed slot, but it is mainly recognised as a spaced themed slot, a galaxy themed slot, or even as a science fiction themed slot. It has 5 reels and every spin will always be played with the full 25 paylines active. In other words, there is no way that you can adjust how many paylines each spin is played with.

This means that the lowest cost per spin will set you back just 0.25 coins (when the coin value is set to 0.01 and the bet level is set to level 1) and the maximum cost per spin will set you back up to 50.00 coins per spin (when the coin value is set to 0.50 and the bet level is set to level 4). This wide betting range makes Big Bang an ideal slot for low rollers, high rollers and everyone else in between.

If you look towards the left hand side of the reels (next to reel 1), you will notice a unique Multiplier Meter. Each time a line win occurs this meter will increase by one value. The lowest value on this meter is X1, and then it can climb to X2, X4, X8, X16 or X32. This means that you need six wins in a row to reach the maximum X32 Multiplier. The only special symbol on this slot is the Wild Symbol (the Sun) and this will substitute all of the symbols on the reels.

There are no other special symbols top keep an eye out for on this slot and there are no other special features or bonus rounds available. However, this awesome Multiplier Meter is a great special feature and it seems to boost your prizes after almost every other spin. “Much like space, there’s so much to discover within Big Bang that players are bound to come back for more and more on the reels,” added Hammon.

You can play on this slot either in the free play mode or in the real money mode and some of the best NetEnt casinos that do now have this game available include sites such as Tropezia Palace Casino, Mr Green Casino, bgo Vegas, Casino Euro, Casumo Casino, Bet365 Vegas Casino and Unibet Casino.

Terminator 2 · July 16, 2014

Terminator 2 is a stunning online slot machine that was produced by Microgaming. This slot officially arrived in casinos on June 4th 2014 and it is based on the Hollywood sci-fi movie of the same name. Microgaming signed a licensing agreement with Creative Licensing Corporation, which represents Studiocanal for Terminator 2 licensing.

“Microgaming is an expert in licensing big brands and we had no doubt that they would create a T2 slot that would perfectly represent the film's legendary status,” said Rand Marlis, the President of Creative Licensing Corporation. He then added, “The end result really has surpassed our expectations and the online game is a masterpiece; I'm delighted that it is now live for everyone to play and enjoy. Working with Microgaming is a real pleasure and we look forward to a long-lasting relationship.”

This new 2014 slot has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin. The Scatter Symbol is the Time Travel Orb and the Wild Symbol is the Burning T2 Logo. When three or more of the Scatter Symbols appear anywhere in view, a Free Spins Bonus Round will trigger and then an extra row of symbols will also be added to the reels. This will give you 1,024 ways to win per spin instead of just 243 ways to win.

During the Free Spins Bonus Round, T-1000 symbols can transform into other character symbols to generate new winning combination of symbols. There’s also a special feature on this slot called T-800 Vision and once this triggers, some kind of guaranteed coin prize will be awarded.

The Terminator 2 slot can be launched instantly in your browser and it is available in the real money mode and in the free play mode. You can now find this epic Microgaming slot machine at various fully licensed online casinos such as All Slots Casino, Gaming Club Casino, Golden Riviera Casino, 32Red Online Casino, Jackpot City Casino, Spin Palace Casino, Royal Vegas Casino, Platinum Play Casino, Betway Casino and Royal Vegas Casino.

“We've taken the core elements of the iconic Terminator 2 film to create an online slot that does the brand justice. Visually it is stunning and it has a fitting game mechanic that is completely unique to the online gaming market,” said Microgaming’s CEO, Roger Raatgever.

He finished by saying, “Our operators and their players will be awestruck by our creation; we are incredibly excited about the game launch today.” All of the comments contained within this article came directly from the official Microgaming website.

A Click Me Bonus Round will automatically trigger when three or more of the Rayguns appear anywhere in view and all you need to do here is click on a gun to reveal an instant cash prize.

The great thing about the Click Me Bonus is that that you get to keep on making picks until you reveal the word ‘collect’ and this bonus feature seems to trigger quite often. The other main bonus feature will trigger when three or more of the Girl Bonus Symbols appear anywhere in view and the aim of this game is to help the marine save the girl in order to win big prizes.

This is an awesome science fiction themed slot from Betsoft Gaming and it has some really big prizes to play for. If you are lucky enough to be able to register with one of the Betsoft Gaming casinos that does actually have this game available, we can definitely recommend checking it out.

The Great Galaxy Grab · June 4, 2014

The Great Galaxy Grab is another great UFO/Sci-Fi themed slot from Microgaming and this game can now be found via the download client at several fully licensed Microgaming powered casinos. This slot could even be classed as a pirate themed slot or as an alien themed slot. It has 5 reels and 25 winning paylines and it is available in the free play demo mode and in the real cash mode.

There is quite a lot happening on this slot and it is literally packed with special features and entertaining bonus rounds. Therefore we recommend heading straight to the paytable when launching this slot for the very first time. The Great Galaxy Grab Logo (the letter ‘G) acts as both a Wild Symbol AND as a Scatter Symbol, plus the Steel Scarlet (female character) is also a Scatter Symbol.

The Wild Symbol will substitute all of the symbols on the reels apart from the Steel Scarlet Scatter Symbols. Also keep an eye out for the Captain Bronzebeard symbols. This is the highest valued symbol on the reels. You will instantly be awarded 10 Free Spins when three or more of the scattered ‘G’ symbols land in any position across the reels and all wins that occur during this Free Spins bonus round will automatically be multiplied by 3X. You can win up to as many as 240,000.00 coins during this bonus round and Free Spins can also be retriggered.

The main bonus feature on this action & feature packed slot is called the Space Chase Feature and this will trigger when three or more of the scattered Steel Scarlet symbols land in any position across the reels. Each time this feature is triggered, you get to travel along the space chase trail to unlock a new bonus feature (aka a new Galactic Location).

The main bonus features include the Bank Bonus (first location), the Refuel Bonus (second location), the Diner Bonus (third location), the Saloon Bonus (fourth location), the Casino Bonus (fifth location) and the final location is the Mall Bonus. Additional prizes called ‘Happy Endings’ will also be awarded for completing the Space Chase Feature. As mentioned, you’re better off viewing the paytable for a better description on how each unique bonus feature works.

This may not be one of Microgaming’s most famous online slot machines, but it is definitely one of their most entertaining. The Great Galaxy Grab slot from Microgaming is well worth checking out and it can now be found in numerous fully licensed online casinos such as All Slots Casino, Jackpot City Casino, 7 Sultans Casino, Royal Vegas Casino, Platinum Play Casino, Golden Riviera Casino, Golden Tiger Casino, Crazy Vegas Casino, River Belle Casino and Spin Palace Casino.

Aliens · May 14, 2014

Aliens™ is a brilliant online slot machine that was released in April 2014 by a leading online casino software provider called Net Entertainment (also known as NetEnt). This is a branded slot machine which is based on the 20th Century Fox movie, Aliens™. This is a cult classic movie that was released in 1986 and starred a young Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley.

This awesome slot has a popular science fiction/alien theme, but it could also be classed as a U.F.O themed slot. It has 5 reels and 15 winning paylines, it can be launched instantly in your browser (no download required) and you can play on this slot either in the real cash mode or in the free play mode at a growing number of NetEnt powered casinos. Although this is a NON-progressive jackpot slot, it does have a huge top prize to play for which is worth as much as 570,000.00 coins.

When you start playing on this slot, you will automatically be presented with a fantastic video intro (which can easily be skipped) and then as soon as this has finished, just hit the continue button to start playing. You will then be taken straight to the reels where you will begin play at Level 1 (aka The Search).

Only after having collected a sufficient amount of multipliers in the Alien Activity Meter (which is visible just above the reels) will you be able to advance to Level 2 (The Encounter). Level 2 plays out more like a shoot-em-up platform game and to help you in your quest to defeat the aliens, it is possible to collect more fire power (known as Ammo Clip Reels) after each encounter with an alien creature.

Destroy all of the Aliens that try to attack you at this level and you will be able to advance to the final level, Level 3, which is also known as The [Queens] Hive. Once again, you have to destroy as many aliens as possible and also the hive in order to win cash prizes. It is actually possible to destroy the Hive with one single grenade.

If this happens, you will receive the maximum prize available. The best thing to do would be to head straight to the paytable for a better description of how each individual level works. This action & feature packed slot from NetEnt has some really impressive 3D graphics for players to enjoy and the accompanying sound effects are also superb.

This is a thoroughly immersive slot which should only take a few minutes to get used to and it can now be found at sites such as Casino Euro, Mr Green Casino, Unibet Casino and BetVictor Casino, plus it has already found its way into more than 40 other great NetEnt powered casinos. We recommend playing on this slot in the full screen mode and with the volume turned up.

Transformers – Battle for Cybertron · April 23, 2014

Although the Transformers slot from IGT Interactive doesn’t feature any little green men or UFO’s as such, we thought that it deserved a mention because it’s one of the best science fiction themed slots available online today and it has become really popular with the wider online gambling community. It can now be found in some of the best IGT powered online casinos.

Transformers – Battle for Cybertron is a non-downloadable slot which was released in September 2013. This action packed slot can be launched instantly in your browser over a flash casino platform and it is available in the real cash mode and in the free play demo mode at approximately 45 different online casinos. It features some electrifying graphics with awesome accompanying sound effects and it has 5 reels and 40 winning paylines.

The game is based on the cult-classic cartoon of the same name, which many of you may already be familiar with. The Bonus Symbols and the Wild Symbols are both really easy to identify and the cascading reels can trigger a feature called ‘Free Fall Symbols’ after each spin. As soon as a line win occurs, the winning symbols which appeared in that line will vanish from the reels, causing new symbols to fall into their position from above. This will keep happening until there are no more wins available.

There are five different Mystery Bonus Features which can randomly trigger at the conclusion of any spin. These special features include Optimus Prime, Megatron, Grimlock, Shockwave and Ratchet. Each robot represents a unique special feature and each feature guarantees some kind of prize once triggered. For a better description on how these Mystery Features work, head straight to the paytable when launching this slot for the first time.

The main bonus feature on this slot is actually a Free Spins Bonus Round and this will automatically trigger when three or more of the Bonus Symbols land in any position across the reels. Once triggered, you will be given the option between four different Free Spins modes.

If you choose Megatron, you will receive 5 Free Spins with an 8X to 10X prize multiplier. If you choose Optimus Prime, you will receive 8 Free Spins with a 4X to 10X prize multiplier. If you choose Shockwave, you will receive 12 Free Spins with a 3X to 5X prize multiplier and if you choose Bumblebee, you will receive 15 Free Spins with a 2X to 4X prize multiplier.

This is a brilliant sci-fi slot from IGT Interactive and it’s definitely one that we can recommend checking out. Some of the best online casinos that currently have this game available include sites such as Mr Green Online Casino, bet365 Games, BetVictor Casino, Paddy Power Games, Betfred Games, CasinoEuro, Jetbull Casino, Casino Luck and Unibet Casino.
