Galacticons – Pokies with Alien Theme
Galacticons is a 243 payline Microgaming pokie that has slipped under the radar somewhat, a game that should be more popular than it is, but one that few pokie players seem to have even heard of. Found on Microgaming casinos like Jackpot City, Galacticons takes you into the cosmos to meet funny-looking space aliens and to stare in awe at the planets and the galaxies all around you.
Galacticons has smooth, cartoonish graphics that fit the theme perfectly and look fantastic. The only letdown here is the fact that standard symbols (A, K, Q, J, 10) are used and have not been given any sort of unique touch. However, if you can look past that then you’ll find a very interesting and very well put-together pokie.
The Milky Way symbol is the wild and it doubles all paylines. The biggest symbol is the red alien, paying 5,000x for 5, although the other aliens also generate big returns as well. In fact, although we would have preferred that they had been given a different look, the standard symbols also return respectable wins, including 1,000 for 5 of the A and 5 of the K.
Galacticons has a very disappointing betting range, one of the smallest we have seen at between $0.30 and $3. It does have a high maximum win of 30,000 coins though.
The Big Bang Bonus takes place on the reels, with a black hole flying around and then generating a return depending on where it lands. The scatter itself generates the biggest win though and you can get 5,000x just for landing 5 of these anywhere on the reels.
Galacticons is great fun and it looks great as well. It is an underrated pokie that deserves much more acclaim and we definitely recommend it.
