Microgaming and Foxium team up to bring slot fans a gaming experience that is literally out of this world, with Astro Legends, a unique and intriguing slot sporting a hexagonal design with nine reels (layout: 1*2*3*3*4*3*3*2*1). The theme combines the retro feel of the 80s with cosmic fiction as the two main characters, Lyra (a rock musician from Earth) and Erion (an extra-terrestrial musician), face off in an intergalactic battle of the bands.
- Winning combinations are formed when at least five matching symbols connect within the reels.
- The game features six standard symbols; an amethyst, a garnet, a peridot plus Q, K and A struck into rock
- The wild symbol can only appear in the three pink-edged positions on the reels and when it assists in forming a winning combination (by replacing all other symbols), it will apply a multiplier of up to 5x.
This feature can kick in at random after a win in the base game. All involved symbols will then lock in place; Erion will emerge fro his hole and block all other reel positions, after which Lyra will blast them all away – any resulting matching symbols will improve the win and another respin is awarded. The bonus ends when there are no more matching symbols.
Lyra Spirit Bonus / Stardust Collection
Every now and again a star shaped as a bubble will float onto the reels. Lyra will pop them and the value which emerges (between 2 and 10) will be added to the total in the top left-hand corner. When the total reaches 100, it activates the Lyra Spirit Bonus and she turns into a wolf. You must then choose one of three tracks for her to run across, avoiding rocks placed by Erion and picking up gems which will increase the multiplier for any wins. The round ends when you have made it through 7 levels, or lost 3 lives. Any remaining lives will add a 20x multiplier to your total win.
Astro Legends is a great looking slot with an interplanetary soundtrack to match. The main feature doesn’t take too long to trigger and when it does, delivers handsome wins. This game comes with an RTP of 96.63%.
