When Space Invaders was first launched in 1978 the gaming industry was rocked to the core, players had never experienced anything like it before. Using skill to dodge the waves of alien attacker was groundbreaking at the time. Now Gala Casino has tapped into the recent retro gaming craze with the launch of their official ‘Space Invaders Slot’.
The graphics, sound and game play are all based on the original game. This licensed slot conversion has all the features you loved from that 1978 arcade classic. Although, when I was 10 years I only remember putting money into the machine. At least now I have the chance of winning my pocket money back!
The danger of converting a classic like Space Invaders is the risk that the developers would’ve been extremely lazy and just re-skinned an existing slot machine. The arcade game is so well known that most slot players would given it a spin just to see what it was like. Thankfully the ‘lazy conversion’ route has been avoided and the slot has many unique elements that set it apart from crowd.
One of the most innovative features is the CANNON which was used to blast the aliens in the original game. In the online slot version the CANNON is still around but now it can shot at the reels, changing low win symbols to WILD SYMBOLS, leading to bigger wins.
A free spin round can also be triggered by the CANNON, if you manage to line up the alien in your sights then you could be shooting for the jackpot with multiple free spins. Whilst the jackpot isn’t the biggest online you can still drop a nice chunk of change playing this slot. However, you won’t win anywhere near the amount earned by the original game designers, the Space Invaders concept netted them a cool $600 million a year between 1978 and 1982.
Dust off the old space suit and prepare yourself for intergalactic cash wins in this iconic video game, brand new at Gala Casino.
