Space Zoo RTP, Volatility, & Max Win

Space Zoo has a theoretical RTP of 96.22% and a Medium Volatility rating. Backseat Gaming has also included a lower RTP alternative of 94.29%.

The medium volatility rating gives players opportunities to hit bigger wins, though they tend to be smaller when compared to slots with a High volatility rating. However, the risk of hitting smaller wins is far greater in the short term. In addition, Space Zoo offers max win capabilities of 10,000x your bet.

Space Zoo Special Features

Space Zoo is equipped with an exciting Wheel of Fortune feature that awards up to 5 unique modifiers, as well as a Bonus Buy option.

 Wheel of Fortune

When the Wheel of Fortune symbol lands during a game round, it triggers the Wheel of Fortune feature with 1-3 Spins. Each spin can award various modifiers which are automatically applied to the main reel set.

At the end of the Wheel of Fortune feature, the Wheel of Fortune symbol will transform into a Wild. In the base game, the Wheel of Fortune can generate 1 of 4 modifiers.

  • Added Wilds – Randomly places 2-10 Wilds onto the main reel set.
  • Symbol Upgrade – Upgrades all Low-paying symbols to a new, randomly chosen High-paying symbol for that spin.
  • Global Multiplier – Activates a Global Multiplier of x2, x3, or x5, boosting all wins for the current spin. If multiple Global Multipliers are awarded, they are added together. During Free Spins, the Global Multiplier sticks until the end of the round.
  • Cash Prizes – Cash prizes are dollar bills with a fixed value between 2x and 1,000x your bet. They are added behind symbols and are collected when a winning combination occurs on positions that hold Cash Prizes.

During Free Spins, an additional modifier is added to the Wheel of Fortune.

  • Extra Free Spins – Awards between +2 and +5 Free Spins.

Bonus Buy

  • Bonushunt Featurespins – 3 Times more likely to trigger Free Spins (2x your bet).
  • Wheel of Fortune Featurespins – Guarantees the Wheel of Fortune symbol to hit (50x your bet).
  • Free Spins – Awards 10, 12, or 14 Free Spins (100x your bet).

Backseat Gaming is still fairly new to the iGaming community, yet they stand out as a promising provider, guided gently by the illustrious Hacksaw Gaming. Lord Venom was the start of something beautiful, with Backseat Gaming going on to deliver a number of exhilarating releases.

It’s not every day you see zoo animals floating around in space, but when you do it’s something you won’t forget in a hurry, with Backseat Gaming keeping the theme light-hearted and fun. Gameplay also falls under these categories, keeping Space Zoo free from complex features and mechanics.

The Wheel of Fortune is a nifty feature which introduces 5 unique modifiers into gameplay. The modifiers themselves are not unlike anything we’ve seen, yet they prove fruitful during the base game and free spins round. Added wilds is the least satisfying of them all, with the Symbol Upgrade and Global Multiplier being the best of the bunch.

With the Wheel of Fortune feature able to hit more frequently in Free Spins, it can be a long-winded round indeed, but seeing the results unfold is worth the wait!
