Not every slot game has to have 30 or more paylines. There is still a place in the market for the old style of machine with just one payline. But as Microgaming proves with their game “Astronomical,” a one line slot game can still have a modern feel to it while also using some of the traditional fruit and number signs.
The game itself is, unlike many modern online slots, quite simple and not at all complicated. You can play from 1-3 coins on each bet, with the smallest coin, or unit, being $.025 and the largest being $5.00. So the most you can bet on any spin in $15.00. But if you bet the maximum coins and hit the maximum payoff, you will win $8,000.
Astronomical Slots has a futuristic setting and background, with the key symbol in the game being the Astronomical Logo. In addition to offering the maximum payout, this logo also functions as the game's Wild symbol. Get a win with one Wild and your payoff is doubled. Get two and it is quadrupled.
The second best payoff in Astronomical Slots comes if you get three of the ringed planets on one line. If you bet the maximum, three planets will pay off 800 units. The other icons are very familiar, at least to long-time slot players. The symbols are Cherries and Bars. There are single, double and triple bars in the game. Three triple bars pays 300 units for a three coin bet.
There are a total of eight ways to win in Astronomical Slots. Three Astronomical signs offers the biggest prize. Any two cherries has the lowest return. You will simply get your coin or coins back if you get two cherries. All other wins require the same symbol across the board, or in combination with the Wild Astronomical Logo.
It's a good idea to play the maximum coins in this game. Like a Royal Flush video poker machine, the maximum payoff in Astronomical is only given if you've played the full amount of coins. If you do, you'll get four times the payoff of one coin, not just three times.
You might say that the special feature of Astronomical Slots is that there are no special features. There is no bonus round and no chance to win free spins. Instead, you've got a game which is wonderful in its simplicity while still offering the chance for a large payoff.
