Data

Galactic Speedway is a 4 reel video slot with 16 paylines. The hit rate is admirable, but this is true only because of the presence of the Rotator special bonus feature. Thanks to it, the Galactic Speedway is a generous video slot. Players can enjoy this disco era slot with an entry bet of at least 0.48. The minimum coin value and bet per line is 0.03 and the maximum is 3, times 16 paylines, the maximum bet is 48.

The top jackpot prize is awarded for landing 4 of a kind, and the highest prize is 15x the bet. This makes Galactic Speedway a low variance slot, entertaining and rewarding in the long run.

Features

The action is set in space, far, far away. Memorable elements from the aforementioned movies are in the center of attention. Besides the DeLorean and the Tron Lightbike, there’s another symbol that portrays a Jet Pack, probably the designers are hinting to the Rocketeer movie.

Doc’s time machine, the DeLorean is the Wild and it substitutes for any other symbol, except the Scatter and the Special, Bonus Symbol. It’s also the highest paying symbol. The Scatter symbol is represented by the Jet Pack and landing 3 of them, triggers 10 Free Rounds.

Lastly, the best part about the Galactic Speedway is the already mentioned Rotator feature. It’s simple, but if you start evaluating it on a higher level, it’s a masterpiece. The Rotator is triggered by landing at least 2 Special, Bonus symbols. Don’t get confused, because the Special Symbol resembles the other two symbols, one of which looks like a Nebula and the other looks like a Star.

Special Features

The Rotator features works like a regular Re-Spin, but the entire symbol grid rotates. The reels do not actually re-spin, but because of the rotation, symbols that otherwise couldn’t connect with the left most position now can. As we view it, it makes the game unpredictable. You just won your bet amount back, and you get another chance at winning, with the same identical symbol structure on the reels.

If this was a 5x5 slot, the hit rate would definitely be higher. We’d like to see a sequel of the Galactic Speedway, with a bigger symbol grid. Maybe have other iconic movie scripts as the basis for the overall theme.

3 or more Scatters bring 10 Free Spins. Furthermore, you can retrigger the feature and win more Free Rounds.

Conclusion

Fans of the movies we mentioned will instantly get the urge to play Galactic Speedway slot. The Rotator makes the slot distinctive. Moreover, when’s the last time you played a 4x4 video slot with 16 paylines? It’s time to spice things up a bit and move away from the standard 5x3 symbol grids. Due to its nature and the higher than average hit rate, many online casinos do not allow players to play Galactic Speedway with Free Spins. We kindly recommend you to give it a go with real money bets, mainly because of its profit potential.
