Prepare to be launched into an intergalactic adventure, in Relax Gaming’s newest release, Space Miners!
Calling all players! The cute and cuddley Martians need your help as they hop from planet to planet, searching for unknown planetary riches that are no doubt out of this world. Your job is to collect Power-Ups that help break through those tough blocks and unearth the hidden wealth that’s buried deep below the surface. As the reels expand, so do your chances of winning big! Along your journey, prepare to be wowed by the Respin feature and impressive Free Spins round. The magic doesn’t end there, double Power-Ups are just within your reach, that help to ensure your survival on your next mission.
We’ve seen the bottom of the rabbit hole in Plunderland and did a spot of train-hopping in Money Cart Bonus Reels, so it seems only fitting that we try our luck on an unknown planet surrounded by cute little Martian Aliens. What could possibly go wrong?
Space Miners has an out of this world theme, excuse the pun.
Space Miners takes you on a trip into the vastness of the cosmos in the company of loveable alien creatures who are keen to fulfil their duties at the galactic mining station.
The graphics here really are superb, and the sounds are great too. You do wonder if there was any inspiration from the smash hit Reactoonz here though. The similarities between the two could be coincidental, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Relax Gaming had Reactoonz in mind when they made Space Miners either.
Overall, Space Miners looks great, and it sounds great, but how does it play?
Space Miners has a variety of betting options for players to choose from. For those who prefer a lower stake, the minimum bet available here is £/€0.10 per spin. For those who prefer a higher stake, the maximum bet Space Miners can be played on is £/€20 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two.
The highest paying regular symbol in Space Miners is the Red Alien, this is closely followed by the Orange, Green, Purple and Blue Aliens. Lower paying symbols fall to the Gold, Green, Purple and Blue Gem Clusters.
Wild symbols substitute for all symbols except Scatters. Wild symbols will always Expand to fill the entire reel.
Space Miners is a 6 reel slot with up to a whopping 1,000.000 Ways to win. In order to form a win you will need to connect 3 or more of the same symbols from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
The most important job the Martians have is to clear the grid of Tile Blockers. This makes way for more symbols to drop onto the reels and increases the ways to win. The base game starts off with a minimum of 729 ways to win. Each time a winning combination is formed, a Respin is awarded. All Tile Blockers that sit adjacent to any winning symbol, will be destroyed and another Respin will be awarded. Respins end when no more winning combinations are formed.
In addition to this, Space Miners also features Power-Ups. These work in a similar fashion to the Power-Ups we’ve seen in Cluster Tumble. More on this below.
Certain Tile Blockers on the reels are equipped with Power-Ups. These can be activated by destroying the Tile Blocker it is attached to. Each base game spin has a minimum of 2 Power-Ups and Free Spins will always start with 4 Power-Ups. The Power-Ups that are available are as follows.
It is possible for Power-Ups to react with one another.
Landing 3 Scatters in any position on the reels, triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 6 Free Spins. Any additional Scatters that may land, award +2 Free Spins.
The maximum amount of Free Spins that can be awarded during the initial trigger is 12 Free Spins.
Once Free Spins begin, all Tile Blockers that are destroyed, will remain unlocked for the duration of the Free Spins round.
Any additonal Scatters that land, will award +1 Free Spin.
If the maximum win capacity of 50,000x is reached, the Free Spins round will immdeitely end and all remaining Free Spins will be forfeited.
For those on another planet and are outside the UK, you may benefit from a Bonus Buy option.
This can be purchased for a generous 100x your current bet.
The RTP when purchasing Free Spins increases slightly from 96.47% to 97.14%.
Space Miners is a prime example of how the brilliant minds at Relax Gaming can produce quality and exciting titles.
Space Miners feels like it was born to be something that brings together a lot of our favourite space-like games, There’s an obvious Reactoonz inspiration in there, and it’s not entirely dissimilar from the likes of Cluster Tumble either when you really think about it. However, despite the suspect inspiration from multiple fronts, it really does feel like Space Miners is something new and exciting in its own right.
In our minds, an exciting slot should have more than just one exciting feature, and Space Miners certainly does. The Power ups really makes the Base Game exciting, and the Free Spins really is the cherry on top with its even more exciting demenour and formidable potential. Speaking of potential, the potential here is huge! 50,000x is the maximum win cap in Space Miners, and we’re confident enough that it could do it too.
Many providers state maximum win values, but some rarely hit them, if ever. We’ve seen the likes of Money Train and others from Relax hit their win caps, so we’re confident that Space Miners could too, if the conditions were perfect.
Overall, Space Miners is another fine slot from a provider that has already brought us so much, and it could certainly be a contender for slot of the year for 2022 already!
