Max Damage has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin and it has a couple of special symbols to keep an eye out for. One of these special symbols is the Wild Symbol. This is the Max Damage Logo and it can land on any of the reels and it can also appear stacked on any of the reels by up to 3 symbols high. The Scatter Symbol is the Green UFO and the only symbol that the Wild Symbol will not substitute is the Scatter Symbol.

The Scatter Symbols can also land on any of the reels and when a minimum of three show up anywhere in view, the main Free Spins Bonus Round will trigger. When this happens you will instantly receive 15 Free Spins and a 2X Prize Multiplier. After any Free Spin a single ALIEN SPACE SHIP can land in any position on any of the reels. When this happens, Max will blast that position into a guaranteed prize. Blasting the Alien Spaceship will also turn it wild.

The second highest valued symbols on the reels are the Wild Symbols and the highest valued symbols are the Scatter Symbols. Huge prizes will be awarded when five of the Wild Symbols or five of the Scatter Symbols land across and of the ‘Way Wins’. If you enjoy playing on this slot, you may also want to check out an arcade-slot from Microgaming called Max Damage and the Alien Attack which has been available in casinos since 2012.

Speaking about this new slot at the time of its release was the Head of Casino Games at Microgaming, Mike Hebden. He said, “When we released Max Damage and the Alien Attack in 2012 it presented something completely new to the industry. To our delight, the game was an instant success and has remained popular with players ever since. The natural next step for us was to take this in-house brand and enhance it - not only by branching out with a new online slot but improving the existing game, to ensure its longevity.” We obtained these comments from Microgaming’s official website.

You only need one Ray Gun Symbol to appear on reel 1 (the leftmost reel) for the Alien Weapon Feature to trigger and the other Bonus Symbols must land on the two outer reels (reels 1 and 5) for the Alien Attack Bonus to trigger.

The Wild Symbols are the top-paying symbols and they can substitute all other symbols on the reels apart from the Bonus Symbols or the Scatter Symbols. Three or more of the Scatter Symbols showing up anywhere in view will instantly trigger 8 Free Spins and during this Free Spins Bonus Round, Comic Strip Wild Symbols will be added to the reels.

In the Alien Weapon Feature, the triangle on the gun will randomly pick a number from 1 to 4. The gun will then fire this number of shots on to the reels and each symbol it hits will turn in to a Wild Symbol. Only symbols on reels 2 to 5 will be shot. Scatter Symbol and Wild Symbols CANNOT be shot.

In the Alien Attack Bonus, choose one of the three characters (Verity, Zeke or Indian Warrior). The aim of this bonus round is to kill as many aliens as possible and each character will use a different weapon to destroy the aliens. The Aliens will attack in three waves. You just have to select an alien to kill. Each kill will award either cash prize, extra ammo or a 2X multiplier. You will receive an additional cash prize for killing ALL of the aliens.

One of the special features on this slot is called The Wild Invaders Feature and this seems to trigger after almost every other spin.

Stacked Wild Symbols can appear on reels 2, 3 or 4 (any of the centre reels) and when this triggers, a UFO will appear from the top of the reel, transforming the reel below in to a Stacked Wild Reel.

However, there are two other entertaining bonus features which DO guarantee some kind of win each time they are triggered.

This bonus round will come to an end when there are no more picks left. The other bonus feature on this slot is a Free Spins Bonus Round and this will trigger when three or more Scatter Symbols show up in view.

You will receive 6, 7 or 8 Free Spins and during this bonus round one of the centre reels (reels 2, 3 or 4) will become completely wild and this can generate some huge line wins.

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.

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.
