Space Wars slot review (Netent)

Space Wars slot review

This bodes well for the rest of the game. The aliens look funny and come in all colours, giving this slot a cheerful feel. The bunch’s orange-coloured alien seems graphically loosely inspired by the evil kingpin Martian, visiting our beautiful planet with ill intent, from the semi-funny Hollywood movie, Mars Attacks! That movie wasn’t much of a blockbuster. Let’s see if this video slot can do better.

Netent’s Space Wars is off to a good start with a fun intro that introduces all the starring aliens

In the background, you hear sounds from outer space, which, after a while, will space you out as well.

Keep on reading to find out what else this Netent video slot has to offer.


Space Wars payout rate and variance

The game has an excellent 96.8% theoretical payout rate and high variance. Occasionally, you encounter small payouts, but sometimes you don’t win anything at all several spins in a row. Though, with each win, aliens shoot through the galaxy, giving you a little something extra that will make your head spin!

Space Wars gameplay and features

The game has 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols. The betting range is set between $€ 0.40 and $ 200 per spin. There are 40 fixed paylines.

The game’s symbols are mostly different aliens: a red crystal, orange alien (the Martian?), yellow alien, green alien, blue alien and purple alien. They also come in similar coloured junior versions!

The junior aliens pay the least; with five identical symbols, they yield between 1 x and 1.5 x your bet. With 5 of the same symbols, the purple alien award you 3.12 x your bet, the blue alien 3.75 x, the green alien 4.37 x, the yellow alien 5 x, the orange alien 10 x, and the red crystals get you 25 x your bet.

The wild symbol speaks for itself: It replaces all symbols. The great thing about this game is that they are Stacked Wilds. This way, you can make delightful combinations!


Free re-spin with additional stacked symbols

A Scatter symbol with a free spins bonus is unfortunately not included, but that doesn’t mean you can’t win free spins! After each winning combination, you get a free re-spin. Once you hit a winning combination, the aliens appearing on the payline are cloned. The clones are then collected in the right-hand cabin. Now and then, this made us smile, by the way.

During the re-spin, the cloned aliens will spin as Stacked symbols on the reels. In combination with the Stacked Wilds, for example, this can literally and figuratively add up! If one of the higher paying symbols drops, the re-spin can be very lucrative. Bring on that war!

Space Wars is not the first and certainly not the last video slot without a free spins bonus. It isn’t always a necessity. Other entertaining slots without free spins bonuses include Netent’s Big Bang and Arcade Bomb (Red Tiger Gaming). They’re very profitable online slot games nonetheless!

Additional options

Well appreciated by Quickspin fans, the game offers an accelerated spin option. Furthermore, you can view your Game History with your latest wins (this is only possible if you’re playing with real money), and you can set your space bar as a spin button.


Our verdict on Space Wars

Graphically, Space Wars is outstanding. The intro and clone effects will also immediately grab your attention. To win big, though, you have to hit the Stacked symbols and Stacked Wilds combinations.

Especially for players who like to take some risk and are into high variance slots, this is a very suitable video slot. There are some dry spells, but Space Wars can certainly reward you handsomely!

Netent, I will try my luck for sure sometime in the future and battle the aliens again!
