The inclusive special features of this Microgaming offering are pretty novel and unique. They will ensure that you have a thoroughly entertaining experience while playing Battlestar Galactica. For example, with every spin of the reels, you will see the experience bar increase in level. This is on display at the bottom of the screen. This sees you progress towards your next rank on board the ship. As you increase in rank, you will unlock more Battlestar Galactica video content. And the more that you wager per spin, the faster your experience level fills up.
There’s also the addition of a wild icon in the game, which comes in the form of the ship’s own logo. This one is able to substitute for all other symbols upon the reels, helping you to form winning combinations. It won’t substitute for the scatter symbol though. However, it does appear in stacks on the very first reel of the game. And this occurs in both the base game and freespins modes.
And as far as the freespins mode goes, this triggers with the appearance of the scatter icon. It’s the space ship that provides the scatter icon to the game. As a scatter symbol, it is able to show up in any location and will still reward you with a pay out. Five of them anywhere will reward you with up to $750 as a pay out. And when three, four or five of them come into view, you will receive 15 freespins of the reels. Triple multipliers will also be active in the feature.
Another addition to Battlestar Galactica is the Ion Storm feature. This is able to trigger at random points during gameplay. Should it do so, it will turn up to five of the reels into completely wild reels. This feature is not able to activate during freespins though.
A secondary random feature mode can also trigger, which is known as the Run Feature. All wins will pay from left to right and right to left when this round begins. If the countdown timer icon appears on the middle reel anywhere, it will jump any of the playing card icons into a mystery symbol. This awards you with additional wins. And the Fight Feature can only occur during Run mode. This sees random symbols turn into wilds at any time. The wild in this round can also split into two and create more winning combinations. Three, four or five of the scatter icon showing up during this round will award you with five freespins. Additional freespins can also be awarded during the feature.
