EyeCon sends up classic 1950s B-Movie sci-fi in Galactic Girls in this high volatility 7,776 payline slot. The studio achieves those paylines thanks to a 6×5 reel case, though rather than actual set paylines the game operates a Ways to Win system. Meaning all adjacent symbols pay left-to-right in whatever formation they land.
Over recent years increasing numbers of slots fans have chosen to play Ways to Win slots over regular payline systems, and the Galactic Girls online slot uses stacked symbols to add value to the pay structure. The reelcase sits amongst a Martian landscape between a classic flying saucer. While the arrival of Emblem Scatters is heralded by a tractor beam that shoots down from the space ship. And all accompanied by classic 1950s rock ‘n’ roll music.
Pros & Cons
- High volatility means when the big wins come they come big!
- Incredible variety of bonus features, which can all be triggered.
- Cheeky use of the 50’s retro theme and soundtrack.
- Even high symbols don’t offer huge payouts.
- High paying game symbols won’t appeal to everyone.
- So many bonus features can seem confusing.
How to Play
The betting interface in Galactic Girls is simple to use and understand. The coin stack next to the reels indicates the bet toggle, which uses a simple bet slider to adjust your bet up and down. The circular spin button sits next to it, with the autospin feature offering between 5-100 spins at various levels.
While in many Ways to Win slots like 1 Million Megaways BC you will see symbols complete wins and then disappear to allow more symbols to fall in their place to make further winning combos, Galactic Girls doesn’t offer any such cascades. Instead, all wins kickstart a retro antenna beeping and tot up before adding to your gaming wallet. Land three Emblem Scatters to trigger the game’s Free Spins bonus feature, during which additional features can be earned.
The Galactic Girls of the game’s title all appear in classic 1950s pin-up style, though if Quentin Tarantino were shooting it as a movie. Hot pants, short skirts and cleavages are all on show from Peggy, Geraldine, Rita, Joyce and Natsumi. They are the game’s high-paying symbols, and all pay out the same value of x0.32 your bet for landing five across adjacent reels. These symbols all appear stacked though, so landing five full stacked symbols will of course earn the highest payouts.
Feminists and modernists will no doubt have their heads in their hands, as each Galactic Girl emits a cheeky noise to add further sex appeal. Interestingly Galactic Girls shows off more flesh than the Playboy Fortunes slot from Microgaming, which you would assume would be the other way round. The low-paying symbols are less risque 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace, paying homage to Star Trek with an orbiting swoosh around them. The game’s Wild symbol is a 1950s TV and substitutes for all symbols except Scatters.
The main bonus feature in Galactic Girls is a Free Spins feature, from which additional bonus games are awarded.
