As a developer of online slot machines IGT has been entertaining players for more than a decade. The theme of Apollo Rising sees you heading off to a nearby space station to rescue Blue the dog and Bananas the monkey. The game’s theoretical return to the player ranges from 93% up to 96.5%. It has 5 reels (5 by 8 rows high) with 100 paylines and offers a total jackpot payout of 25 million coins.
Apollo Rising sci-fi slots is not for the faint hearted because it’s only reserved for the bravest of astronauts. However, if you’re up for the task it offers loads of payouts during the base game and a highly lucrative bonus game.
Against the back drop of the reels is the universe. Paying symbols are cards icons from 9 to A, Blue the dog, Bananas the monkey, male and female (red and yellow) astronauts as well as the wild that offers a re-spin when it appears. At the maximum bet per spin you’ll receive 300 coins for 5 orange (male) astronauts. From a graphical point of view the animations are vibrant, easy on the eye and colourful. The game can be played on mobile devices like Androids, iPhones and tablets.
As you strap on your space suit there’s a certain amount of risk involved but the rewards make it worth your while. With 100 winning lines there’s a lot to play for. The minimum bet per spin is 1 coin up to 30. The latter bet allows you to wager up to 3,000 coins per spin making Apollo Rising suitable to high-value players.
Finding Blue the dog and Bananas the monkey in space is like trying to find the proverbial needle in a haystack. The only difference this time round is that the haystack is space. But don’t despair. Blue and Bananas left you several clues in the form of matching symbols making it easier for you to find them.
When a matching icon appears across the reels you can win up to 80 times your bet. If Bananas pops up you can win as much as 150 times your stake. Blue on the other hand offers you a payout of 100 times your bet. It’s pretty obvious that Apollo Rising video slots is no slouch when it comes to payouts. After all space travel is risky business.
Your mission just received another twist. Mission control just informed me that Blue and Bananas aren’t the only two that needs to be rescued but your co-pilots too. They’re the ones wearing those bright coloured space suits (orange and yellow). If you rescue them they’ll show their gratitude by offering you a payout of 300 times your stake.
Wild Icon: Also known as the Rising re-spins feature. When it appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 it triggers the bonus game. For your efforts you’ll receive a free spin. Each symbol triggers a free game. The rocket transforms all the wild symbols which expands to cover the entire reel. During the free games these wilds remain locked on the reels (sticky) and turn additional symbols into wilds.
Apollo Rising offers lucrative payouts, a Rising Respins bonus game and loads of twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat. One can say it offers a bit of everything. I consider it a medium variance slots.
