In terms of graphics and the feel of the game is shares a lot with it’s predecessor and the Lord of the Rings slot of course.

Battlestar Galactica has some extra features to enhance the gameplay for us slot players.

Here’s the video preview:


It’s a 243-way slot and includes the Wild Storm feature (as used in Dark Knight and Thunderstruck 2).

There are also 2 types of free spins games.

It’s a 243 way slot with a load of add-on video content and some achievements which will see you rise through the ranks of the Battlestar Galactica hierarchy.

  • Multiple game modes containing unique bonus features and special functions
  • Normal base game includes the Ion Storm Wild reel feature that triggers 15 free spins with 3 or more Scatter (each of the free spins wins are multiplied by 3x) – Thos eof you familiar with Thunderstruck 2, Immortal Romance and Lord of the Rings will be familiar with this.
  • RUN mode wins pay left to right and right to left winning combinations (win bioth way)
  • When an FTL symbol lands anywhere on the middle reel it causes all the Royal symbols to jump of the screen and award additional wins
  • In FIGHT mode, random symbols can be turned into wilds at any time as the Cylons and Colonials battle it out over the reels.
  • These Wild symbols can split into double wild, and three or more Scatter symbols will award five free spins with the ability to earn additional free spins
  • Ranking achievements: progress will promote your players from Civilian all the way up to 8th rank of Admiral while unlocking continuous Battlestar Galactica video content, giving your players the ultimate gaming experience

The soundtrack to this slot is stunning, really atmospheric and it changes according to each game mode.

The Ion Storm feature (in the limited time I’ve played so far seems to pop up more often than in TS2 or LOTR).

When switching mode into Fight Mode (that’s the green mode) the wins pay both ways (left to right and right to left) This mode also introduces a special character on the middle reel which always results in a 5 of a kind – the symbol scrolls to give you a winning 5 of a kind – very nice feature!

In red mode the middle window random symbol is removed and it’s back to thee scattered ships awarding free spins.

After a set number of wins you will be promoted through the Battlestar Galactica ranks – beginning as a cadet you’ll become a Private and on up to an Admiral 8th class!

Scatters are great but not so great in Fight Mode (Red mode) I got 4 scatters and only 5 free spins – for less than 10 euros the first time. IN normal mode you get 15 free spins, much better value seeing as the random wilds in Fight mode are pretty few and far between.
