With a title such as ‘Apollo Rising’, you might be excused for thinking it’s another slot game that has a theme taken from ancient mythology. Well it’s not because in this slot from IGT we’re in outer space. Apollo of course being the name of the space ships that took men to the moon in the 1960s and 70s.
The game has a cartoonish look to it and is a bit different from some of the slot games you’ll have played. That’s because there are five-reels here but a total of eight rows with 100 fixed paylines. Those 100 paylines are a fixed amount. Playing the game costs between £1 and £1000, that means it’s really handy for players who just want to have some fun and you high rollers out there determined to win big cash prizes.
The futuristic look to the game is continued in its symbols. There are male and female astronauts in space suits that seem to have some kind of jet pack fitted on the back. There’s also a bit of experimentation going on with this Apollo space mission, hence there being a monkey symbol and a dog symbol. I wouldn’t fancy having the job of cleaning up after those two. These high value symbols take up more than one of the rows with the two astronauts taking up three and the animals two. That increases your chances of getting some good winning combinations.
The wild symbol in this game is simply a glowing ‘Wild’ that is only seen on the second, third and fourth reels. This can help you get some winning combinations by substituting for other symbols. There’s a really special feature with this wild symbol which we’ll come to in a moment.
The other low paying symbols in the game are the Nine to Ace playing cards. Probably one too many and it’d have been good to see some more theme related ones.
Playing the game isn’t that difficult at all. Most games have the main control buttons underneath the reels but in ‘Apollo Rising’ they are to the right of the reels. It’s possible to set an autospin feature with a choice of between ten and fifty automated spins. The paytable and game rules for this slot are below the reels. These are really handy to take a good look through. Then have some free games and prepare yourself fully for the space voyage that lies ahead.
You’re never going to want to turn down some free spins are you? Well in ‘Apollo Rising’ there’s the Rising Respins feature. There’s no scatter or bonus symbol in this game so to trigger this you need to get the wild symbol anywhere on the second, third or fourth reels. When that happens, the wild suddenly transforms itself into a wild rocket. This covers all of the reel it appears on and gives you a great chance of getting some winning combinations.
Where do the free spins come into all of this? Well, you’re given a respin and the number you get depends on how many wilds appear at the end of the spin. Two wilds get you two respins and three give you, yes you’ve guessed it, three respins.
It’s also possible to get more respins if those wilds make another appearance. This bonus feature can really get you some big wins, especially if you can get at least two wilds appearing. Three doesn’t happen often but if it does then sit back and count the winnings on their way to you.
Another enjoyable game from IGT that gives the player plenty of opportunities to get some good wins. The theme is a good one for sci-fi fans and the eight rows and futuristic sounds add to the fun. The Rising Respins can definitely get you some good wins if your luck is in and those wilds make an appearance.
