Two Match Wins
So few games have such a well laid out paytable, so just let the ease of use sink in for a second… Right, now that we’ve given time to the design, let’s look at one of its features, the two match win system.
Most slots allow a win when three, four or five of a kind have been lined up, with few exceptions to this rule, but Space Tale said ‘oh hell no’ to that, and has made a match of two worthy of a win. We like how generous this feels, for it means we get a lot more out of the money we punt, which is good going as we can wager as much as 150 per game!
The two of a kind match does have a drawback though: it pays a lot less than the others combinations, but hey, at least it pays. Normally you’d have to weep when getting only two symbols, whereas now you can rejoice.
Without a pilot, you’re going to achieve nothing of great importance here, and so you’re going to have to set about winning some bonus points if you’re to ride on a rocket ship to mars. One catch though, we have no clue how you actually do that.
Spielo may have come up with a clever bonus round, but in doing so they’ve made understanding it a tad harder; we know we need points, but we don’t know what generates them. We know we need to keep getting rocket icons, but do they need to be matched or can they show up alone? If we’re stumped, just imagine how you’re going to feel playing this; this is a poorly thought out system for sure.
Mining for Gems
Resources out in space are lacking, this we know from the countless other games we’ve played, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be found. It just takes some hard work, and by that we mean you need to keep going until you hit a set of three or more jackpot icons.
That’s right, Space Tale sees the return of the jackpot symbol, a great way of getting large piles of cash on top of all the other money floating about out there in space. Unlike in other games from the brand though, it seems the jackpot is progressive in size. What is more, you’ll need a max bet playthrough to obtain it. We guess you can’t avoid minor hiccups when out exploring the universe
Good Triumphs Again!
There may be evil out on those reels, but you’re going to beat it back and stem the tide, and you’re going to do it all from inside your home. Well how about that.
Space Tale is a grand adventure, despite looking to the contrary, and while you may find some of the mechanics of gameplay messy in places, the overall playability is good. This is high quality gaming, from a brand that has stood the test of time and just keeps on delivering. If you want a little bit of everything, you’re going to get just that here.
