Astro Legends: Lyra and Erion 3D slots is a collaboration between Microgaming and Foxium, we haven’t heard about ‘Foxium’ before we crafted this online slots review. At times we’re stumped with all the join-ventures going on of late between major software houses and lessor known developers.
”The features in Astro Legends: Lyra and Erion’s treasure chest makes it an enjoyable space adventure slots with plenty of winning spins.”
Any how it’s best we rather focus on the slot machine. So, what’s the game all about and why should you play it? To begin with this joint-cooperation hits the tarmac with a RTP (return to player percentage) of 96.5% and offers a non-progressive jackpot of 15,000 coins on one spin plus it has 10 paylines and 5 reels.
It’s a 1980ish sci-fi themed slots that teleports players to the universe of Oratorio, must say it’s got a nice ring to it. Our heroine ‘Lyra’ must save her world from impending doom in the form of a malicious artificial intelligence created by the evil Erion. It’s pretty obvious what your job is here; as you spin the reels you must save Lyra and her world from Erion. By doing so you’ll find yourself in an alien world with multipliers from 2x to 5x, sticky re-spin clusters, a Lyra pick’em bonus and a funky audio track.
Symbols that weave their way across this intergalactic slots are various high value crystals (garnets, amethysts, peridot), Erion, cards from Queen to Ace (low value) and wild. Astro Legends: Lyra and Erion comes with a respectable RTP of 96.63%.
When it pitches in 3 hexagonal cells the wild multiplier (2x to 5x) spices up play during the main game when it substitutes symbols adjacent to it.
The re-spins feature is triggered on each random spin during the base game. When it’s played winning symbols stick to the reels as the reels spin again, as long as you hit a winning spin, the reels will keep on spinning.
During regular play the Stardust Bubble overlays a position on the reels randomly, points from 2 to 10 are revealed when Lyra pops it which accumulates in a separate meter. Once you notched up 100 points you’ll trigger the Lyra Spirit Bonus round which we’ll discuss in the next section.
Lyra Spirit Pick ‘Em Bonus
Lyra is the cool looking space gal with the electronic keyboard, as she tries to escape the clutches of the evil Erion and Libretto she turns into a wolf. Once the bonus round is played you’re given a choice between 1 of 3 paths (pick one). Each path is loaded with magic crystals.
Erion will do everything to stop Lyra from making good her escape. Now, if you picked the path where A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) casts a spell, you’ll forfeit a life. Succeed in passing all 7 levels with at least one life in tact you’ll score a cash prize of 20x your stake.
One has to give credit where it is due. We give Microgaming and Foxium top marks for the arcade-like gameplay along with the interesting display of bonus rounds and betting strategy. Key to winning is to gain as many sticky re-spins clusters and wilds with multipliers that shoot up to 5x.
