This science fiction-themed slot has 5 reels and 243 ways to win meaning that the slot pays out when there are matching icons on adjacent reels regardless of what position on the reels they have. A winning combination is produced when identical symbols display consecutively from left to right starting from the first or the fifth reel.
There is a career progress meter that shows your current military rank. You start your military career as a private, but as you advance through the ranks, you get access to more media content that appears as soon as you hit a winning combo.
Having no paylines, the slot machine allows for making only two adjustments before every spin. First, you can select a coin size of $0.01, $0.02 or $0.05. Second, use “plus” and “minus” buttons to set the number of coins per spin (10 coins at max). So a spin bet falls within the range of $0.3 and $15.
On the reels you’ll come across playing card values from 10 through Ace. As with any typical online casino slots, they are the lowest paying icons granting a win of x5 to x80 times your coins bet, for 3, 4 or 5 identical symbols. Battlestar Galactica movie characters pay more generous rewards: five Starbuck/Apollo symbols award at a x400 multiplier, five Baltar symbols pay out x300, etc.
There are three play modes in this slot, including Normal mode, Fight mode and Run mode. They can swap at any time, each offering different bonuses and winning opportunities. The Normal mode is a base game featuring a stacked wild on the first reel. When the Run mode is randomly activated, all the reels turn green. In this mode, all wins pay from left to right AND from right to left. Besides, the Timer symbol landing on the middle reel can morph into any card symbol and create a five-of-a-kind combo.
Fight mode can be randomly activated during the Run mode. In the Fight Mode random symbols can become wild icons. In addition, wilds can split in two to build up more winning combinations.
This feature can randomly occur in the normal gameplay turning 1 to 5 reels wild for one spin.
The Battlestar Galactica symbol acts as a wild substituting for all regular symbols to finish a winning payline. Two wilds pay out 4 coins, while three or four icons award 40 or 100 coins respectively. Ultimately, the slot’s second largest jackpot of 600 coins is paid out to any player who rolls up five wild icons.
The Fighter Ship symbol is a scatter and the top-paying icon, with five of a kind scattered anywhere awarding a coins bet times x1500. Three, four or five scatters start 15 free spins at a x3 multiplier. During a free spins round you have a chance to win a tremendous 1,400,000-coin fixed jackpot if you play at max stakes!
