Every now and then, a new online casino game comes along that has the potential to create a whole new theme. Today, we might just be looking at one with Space Miners, the latest of Relax Gaming’s online slot games and one that has some attractive features. There are cascading reels that open up more rows when win sequences happen to a possible 1,000,000 ways to win, while you can also trigger a free spins feature for some bonus added value. To add to that, this is now one of the casino games you can play at our casino site with up to 50,000x your stake as the maximum win. Are you interested to hear more?
Space Miners is quite a unique theme and likely took some creative brainstorming by the fellas back at Relax Gaming. It takes place in space, as the name suggests, with comical little aliens manning the show. However, these aliens are miners, using mining carts on rails transporting loads of gemstones around the place. Not quite the modern perception we all have of space. Regardless, you'll see that the grid consists of 6x10 blocks. However, there are only 6x3 blocks that see symbols spinning when things get going. The objective is to break open more blocks to increase the number of paylines as the game progresses. You do this by achieving win reactions through the cascading reels. Cascading reels is a mechanic you’ll see in most Megaways titles, such as Well of Wilds Megaways and Reel Spooky King Megaways. It sees wins trigger another spinning of the reels straight after that can result in another win, which in turn triggers more movement of the reels to possibly trigger another win, and so on.
Let's talk wagering. The maximum bet you can place in Space Miners is 20.00 per wager, while players can stake as low as 0.10 for more conservative bets. This is one of the slots online you'll find here with higher levels of volatility, meaning more significant win values but wins coming less often. Just to reiterate, the most you'll be able to win is 50,000x your bet, which of the many online casino games we host is definitely up there with the highest.
There’s loads of colour and eye-capturing design in Space Miners, which isn’t only helping out by the background to the reels but also by the symbols. The lower paying icons are represented by four valuable gemstones, all of them carrying identical values. The symbols that carry higher values are five aliens that could actually be monsters. The red alien with the crazy look is, by some distance, the highest paying regular symbol.
Look out for the wild symbol in Space Miners, as it will act as any regular icon in the game to make up winning lines. There's also a bonus symbol that the wild can't substitute, and this is the spaceship.
As mentioned above, breaking open blocks is what you really want to do, and you do this by achieving win reactions. Opening up all blocks on the 6x10 grid will bring 1,000,00 paylines into play. Also, breaking open blocks with peculiar icons on them leads to a sequence of multiple blocks breaking open.
The way you trigger the free spins is by collecting bonus symbols. You can do this by landing three bonus symbols on the same spin or by acquiring them via win reactions. Once you've collected 3 of these symbols, you'll be awarded six free spins. However, any extra bonus symbol collected during the win sequence will add an extra two free spins. During the free spins, any blocked blocks that are broken open will remain open for the duration of the free spins.
Space Miners is a slot machine that gives the impression that loads is happening, but what we see is really just expanding reels that have been around for a while. Still, the visuals and sound effects are really cool and make this way of doing it far more fun. All in all, this is one of the most entertaining online slots we've played in a while, although it can never hurt to add more free spins to the bonus feature.
