The wombat says: Ever feel like taking off and leaving the earth behind? Navigating the planets while spinning on a space station? Well, your luck’s in Wombat fans, because Milky Ways slot from Noimit City (the people behind the very excellent Tractor Beam slot) will give you all this but without the need to train as a NASA aeronaut.
Yes, this outer-space themed game comes with Solar Wilds, Milky Ways spins and Fusion spins and we’re very excited to try it out!
Look and Feel
Space, the final frontier… You don’t need to be aboard the Star Ship Enterprise to get a good view of the galaxy Wombat fans. Your reels here are totally transparent and set on a background of shifting purple gases, twinkling distant stars and colourful planets. You’ll even see asteroids floating around with cool 3D precision!
When I first saw this slot, I immediately saw Megaways, but this game is more the galactic variety.
Your soundtrack is an electro space age ditty that accompanies your spins and the theme very nicely. Well done Nolimit City!
Milky Ways slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 243 ways to win in the base game – but that can expand up to 3125 in the free spins round! Wins are formed you need three matching symbols anywhere on adjacent reels from left to right. Bets start a 0.20 and go up to 100.00 per starry spin. There´s none of your traditional pay-lines here. Head to something like Diamond Inferno if that´s more your style.
As for your intergalactic reels icons, are made up gemstones in red, yellow, green and blue plus the J, Q, K and A playing card symbols represent the lower values.
The wild is the glowing W symbol and it will land appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only – it also comes with a random multiplier which is a nice touch. It the will do the usual job of substituting for all other symbols on the reels to make extra wins for you. Finally, the Milky Ways game logo symbols is the scatter.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
All mentioned, the Wild icons come with win multipliers attached – these can be x2 or x3 your payout, but, if you hit more than 1 Solar Wild on the reels the multipliers are combined. Bonza. So, a 2x and 3x Wilds will pay you out 6x your bet, which can really help to bring home the bacon.
Milky Ways Spins
Hit 3x of the Milky Ways Scatter icons on the reels and you’ll trigger off the Free Spins bonus. You’ll scoop 3x free spins and your reels will increase by adding 2 extra rows giving you 3125 ways to win.
But there’s more! On each spin at least 2x Solar Wilds are guaranteed to land which means some chunky Multiplier wins. Plus, land another scatter icon and you’ll get an extra spin.
Get a win and your icons will be locked in place for a re-spin! This continues until no more matching symbols land…
Haven’t got time to hang around waiting to trigger off the bonus feature? Well don’t worry, you can buy it instead, at a cost of 38x the current bet level! It’s not cheap – but it could land you the big wins.
OK, you’re right, 3x free spins sounds a bit mean but when coupled with Solar Wild multipliers and re-spins you’ll find that those wins start to stack up nicely. It’s also good to see Nolimit City bring a medium-variance slot to the table instead of its usual crazy volatile games!
A good-looking game with sophisticated graphics – although this wombat is a bit sad the xNudge Wilds feature aren’t included…
Wombat score: 4.9/5
