Update: Please note that the online slot game Space Enigma, will not be available to play on Mummys Gold Online Casino
Mars. David Bowie wondered if there was life on the Red Planet, Elon Musk wants to colonise it, and we’re still waiting for someone to actually get there. Trips to space whenever we feel like it is one reason we’re thrilled to announce that Space Enigma, a new online slot, will be here in February.
Believe us, though, there are other reasons we are excited about this new online casino game too, and Expanding Wilds, Bi-directional paylines and Multipliers are just some of the others.
Space Enigma’s provider is none other than Microgaming, one of the most trusted names in online casino gaming. However, the team responsible for the slot is one of the provider’s independent creative partners, All41Studios. We can’t get enough of some of the studio’s earlier releases, so the question on everyone’s lips here is whether the upcoming slot game with 5 reels and 10 fixed paylines will make the grade. From the look of things, we wouldn’t be surprised if it exceeds all expectations.
Gems In Space
An old poem famously compares twinkling stars to glittering diamonds, but as everyone knows, millennials don’t buy diamonds. Instead of filling the farthest reaches of the galaxy with the hardest stone known to humanity, the Space Enigma designers went for a rainbow of coloured gems.
Players will see the golden yellow of heliodor, blushing red rhodonite, rich pink garnet, the gorgeous green of peridot, entrancing blueish-green Afghanite, pretty purple iolite, and beautiful blue kyanite. The colours of the symbols pick up the jewel-like colours of the galactic setting, but none of those stones do it like the Space Enigma, a multi-coloured star-shaped crystal, does.
The standard online slot symbols can form winning combinations from left to right and from left to right, and those payouts could be generous. The multi-coloured crystal can help players win, and it even can let players enjoy more winning chances. How good could those chances be? Well, players can stand to win a whopping 1000x of their total bet.
Wild Crystal Power
We have a sneaking suspicion that when playing Space Enigma, players attention will be focused on the 3 middle reels. Those are the only reels on which the Wild multi-coloured star-shaped crystal can land.
When looking closely, players will see that the crystal appears to contain the colours of each of the other stones. This is not just for decoration. Instead, it means that the special slot symbol can combine with any of the others to form a combination that pays.
Whenever the Space Enigma lands, it will expand. By filling the reel that the Wild landed on, the symbol could participate in an incredible number of wins – and that is not all. Players also will win a Re-Spin every time the Wild lands on reel 2, 3, or 4. This gives them an additional chance to land a winning combination, and Respins can continue until no winning matches land.
Playing the Game
The fixed paylines mean players have to play with all of them active on every spin, but they can adjust the coin value and bet level to a level they feel comfortable with.
Players can go the route of playing for the absolute minimum of 0.10 per spin, or can play with bigger bets. Players could even play the slot for as much as 100.00 per spin.
Pre-launch testing by the developer calculated the Space Enigma RTP as 96.27%, which is more or less what we have come to expect from online slots in the Microgaming stable. All41Studios also indicated that the hit rate is 19.86%, and that the game is medium volatility.
A Sure Winner
Space Enigma is simple, but the appearances of the Wild will take the action up a few notches. While all those Wild substitutions and Re-Spins are going on, players can see crystalline shapes, enchanting colours, and a soothing space scene of nebulous clouds and twinkling stars.
