Space Race Slots

This wonderfully retro space themed slot has an arcade feel with its electronic sound effects and graphics that could come from an 80s video game. Race through the 20 paylines to trigger the meteor shower Free Spins or the brilliant rocket bonus side game. If you were ever a space junkie as a kid then this is the slot for you.

The Space Race video slot with software by Play'n GO looks fab, has great nostalgia value and some entertaining bonus features. However, as an online gambling game we need to know if it pays out, too?

Join us as we launch our review in 5..4..3..2..1..

Space Age Graphics

The slot opens with an intro animation of a voyage through the galaxy, past Earth and its orbiting satellites and to our moon. The inevitable 2001 overtones are hinted at in the backing track and we arrive at 5x3 reels of retro graphics and a space age control panel in front of us.

There's no atmosphere in space, but there's plenty of atmosphere in this fun slot with a great sense of nostalgia. Design and styling hint to the 80s, the height of the space race and our obsession with boldly going beyond our horizons.

Play from 0.01

With paylines (20) number of coins (1-5) and coin value (0.01-0.25) all adjustable betting is a flexible feast. The max bet is 25.00 and RTP is a lowly 94.23%.

For fans of Play'n Go slots the paytable and symbol payouts with feel very familiar. Low-paying playing cards are joined on the reels by the Moon, Earth, a satellite and an astronaut. Payouts for these latter range from 75x-250x your line bet for 4OAK and from 250x-1000x your line bet for 5OAK.

The game's logo Wild symbol offers the jackpot symbol payout of 1000x your line bet for 5OAK. Whilst landing rocket Scatter symbols will only offer up to 300x for 5OAK, they do pay from anywhere on the reels and it's multiplied by your total stake, not line bet.

Dramatic Free Spins

You'll notice an alarming red warning symbol on the reels alerting you to the possibility of meteor showers. This is a bonus symbol and by landing three of them across the reels this space themed slot gets really interesting.

Suddenly vast flaming meteors come streaking down the reels leaving a new set of symbols in their wake. Essentially this is your Free Spins round, but reel spins are a hugely fun and dramatic twist on the standard.

Rocket Bonus

Triggered by three rocket symbols the bonus side game is a brilliant and involving piece of gaming. You're given the mission to land the rocket on the moon by selecting the correct co-ordinates through various levels. Each stage will offer real cash rewards and you have two lives to avoid being destroyed by a meteor and game over.

In reality this is simply a Pick'Em selection based on luck, but the design makes you feel like it's an arcade game based on skill. You can almost feel the joystick in your hands.

Other Space Themed Slots

For a genuine taste of arcade memorabilia you should try Ash Gaming's wonderful homage to a misspent youth, the free Space Invaders slot.

For a space age experience on the other end of the scale then Yggdrasil's Incinerator video slot exemplifies the latest technology and best graphics on the modern market.

The Space Race Video Slot - Play for Real Money

Graphics and theme design alone would be enough to recommend this superb Play'n GO release. However, the Space Race video slot takes it one step further and offers us drama and interactivity that's all too rarely seen in online slots.

There are some good real cash prizes to be won (although, beware the RTP and remember this slot's limits), but the bonus game alone is reason enough to seek it out. We'll race you to it.
