Take a trip to outer space with the galactic Milky Ways slot game. As soon as the screen loads and you see all the bright colours, you know you’re in for a treat – even if it’s not the namesake chocolate. 

Nolimit City is no stranger to fun, having developed some of the best slot games in the iGaming industry for several years. This dynamic slot game is simple in design but has the potential to give you big winnings; you could generate up to 5,664 times your stake if you get lucky! 

Pros & Cons

  • A good range of bonus features are available

  • Average RTP percentage
  • Experienced users might find the simple interface boring
  • Wins might not be as common as on other slot games

How to Play 

Milky Ways’ setup is pretty simple. The game is spread across five reels that span three rows, which can expand to five. 

Playing Milky Ways in and of itself is straightforward. On the screen, all you have to do is press the circular arrow button to spin the wheel. Alternatively, you can click on the spacebar. 

Beforehand, you’ll need to set your stake. If you click on the dollar sign in the bottom left, you can choose how much you’d like to place on that particular spin. 

If you click on the lightning bolt in the bottom right, the reel will spin much faster than usual. 

Okay, we’ve got all the boring stuff out the way. How do you win, we hear you ask? Simple: get three or more of the same symbol on reels next to one another. The amount you win depends on what you got in your spin. 


Milky Ways has various symbols that pay out differently. The lower-paying ones include the Jack and Queen, both of which pay out 0.50x your stake.

You’ll also notice several gems, each of which has a different payout. These are as follows: 

  • Blue: 0.75x
  • Green: 1x
  • Yellow: 1.50x
  • Red: Up to 2.50x

In bonus rounds, which we’ll talk more about in a moment, you can also find wild symbols – which can increase your payout significantly.
