Blast Off With New Space Enigma Online Pokies
Colourful gems working wonders in the far reaches of the universe is turning out to be a popular theme for online pokies. The latest offering in that vein is Space Enigma, and this hot new online pokie looks like it could very well be the most exciting of the lot.
Produced by All41Studios, one of Microgaming’s creative slot development partners, the new title with 5 reels and 10 paylines packs in stunning graphics, otherworldly music, and a variety of features. Among them are Wilds and Re-Spins. If you are tempted to explore a pokies galaxy surprisingly rich in precious stones, head over to Ruby Fortune from 27 February when this game goes live.
Our Colourful Universe
We love how online pokies graphics powered by Microgaming just keep getting better and better. From what we have seen of Space Enigma, we could lose ourselves in the dreamy space-scape for hours. It looks like some of the images that are captured by space telescopes.
You can see stars twinkle and meteors flash in between colourful swirls of gas and space dust. Of course, that is all in the background. Even more eye-catching are the gems on Space Enigma’s invisible reels!
They include golden heliodor, red rhodonite, pink garnet, green peridot, blue-green Afghanite, purple Iolite, and blue kyanite, all with a unique crystal structure. Of these, the heliodor and rhodonite are the best paying. The red stone offers 12x your s bet, while the heliodor could award you with as much as 50x your bet.
In addition to the gorgeous selection of jewels, the reels also feature the Space Enigma itself; a crystal shaped like a 6-pointed star that seems to be made up of all the other stones. The symbol is distinct from the others. You just need to take one look at it to see that it is no standard icon.
Wild Power Unleashed
Space Enigma’s crystal star is just one of the reasons the forthcoming title could be one of 2020’s best online pokies. For starters, the icon is the game’s Wild.
The symbol’s most basic function is to substitute for regular symbols when it is in a position to help create or increase a paying combination. The Wild, which appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 only, also has the power to Expand and to fill its reel, which could lead to several more wins, some of which might be utterly spectacular.
Expanding Wild and Re-Spins
Now, if that was all this Space Enigma pokies symbol did, that would be more than satisfying, but do you think that is where All41Studios stopped? Not a chance. Right, so, when it becomes an Expanding Wild, the symbol also triggers a Re-Spin – but wait, there’s more.
This altogether impressive icon, which already substitutes for other symbols, expanded to fill a reel, and triggered a Re-Spin, becomes Sticky. Pick that jaw up off the floor. We’re not joking, and we’re still not done with this symbol.
Get this – if your Space Enigma Re-Spin lands another one of those magical icons, the new one will grant you yet another Re-Spin. Yes, you guessed it. Those Wilds are all locked in place for the additional Re-Spin. It’s madness. Madness, we say, and we love it!
Uncomplicated Betting and Gameplay
For all its lush visuals and music, its entrancing designs, and its justifiably impressive Wild, Space Enigma’s betting and gameplay is comfortingly familiar. You can choose the credit value of the coins you bet.
By adjusting those values, you can spin the reels for your preferred amount between minimum and maximum bet limits of 0.10 and 100.00 per spin, respectively. The Return to Player rate, which is percentage of players’ bets that theoretically will be returned over time, has been checked through pre-launch testing. According to the provider, it is a generous 96.27%.
The hit rate is 19.86%. The new online pokie has been described as medium volatility, but we cannot shake off the feeling that it will lean toward the higher end of the scale. If it does, Space Enigma is sure to be an even bigger hit with players all over the globe. After all, who could resist something that exciting?
About the Provider
Founded last year in Tallinn, Estonia, All41Studios has already released several online pokies as one of Microgaming’s latest creative partners. The games so far have all had very different themes and features, and Space Enigma is set to reveal yet another side to the developer’s talents.
One of its very first releases in the Microgaming stable was Le Kaffee Bar. Set in a hipster coffee shop, it offers not only Scatter Collecting and a Spin Again feature, but a Free Spins round as well. The Magic of Sahara offers a glimpse into the great desert not usually seen in pokies. The story focuses on the Tuareg people, while the features include Super Stacked Wilds and Free Spins.
Space Enigma goes live at Ruby Fortune on the 27th of February, and it looks set to join the developer’s other releases as instant player favourites.
