Achieving new ranks is going to unlock the new game content. Battlestar Galactica slot is available on desktop and laptop computers and is easily accessible because no download and registration are needed. It requires java flash player activated. There is no mobile version of this pokie.
One starts off as a civilian which is the first rank, and by spending more time playing this pokie, a player receives more experience and its rank can go up to admiral’s which is the highest. Besides that, each new rank brings new video content from original TV-series. Gameplay revolves around activating one of the three different modes and of course gaining random bonus features such as Ion storm at the right time. Slot machine’s Battlestar Galactica symbols are divided into two groups. The first consists of standard symbols. Some of them are numbers and letters, and some of them represent recognizable faces from Battlestar Galactica show. Starbuck and Apollo wage the most, Ellen and Tyrol the least. The second group is made out of special tokens such as wild and scatter. Wild token looks like a Battlestar Galactica logo. It substitutes for any ordinary symbol, so one can land a winning combination, except for the scatter, and also creates wild stack when landed in the same place as a previous one. It stacks only on reel one during the normal mode and free spins feature. As for the Scatter symbol, it looks like a Ship. Winning combination is created when 3 of them appear on the reels and it is calculated by multiplying scatter symbol combination payout by the total number of regular coins bet. During the normal and fight mode, landing 3 to 5 of them will unlock free-spins bonus game.
Normal mode is activated by landing 3 Battlestar Galactica scatter symbols and it triggers free-spin feature giving player 15 free-spins along with 3 times multiplier. This can occur only once during playing. Wins in this mode pay from left to the right and combination has to start from the first reel. If it starts from the second or any other column, it will not be cashed out.
Step up the game and collect more money with the Run mode, because in it, wins pay right to left and as well left to right meaning that one of the symbols must be displayed on first or the fifth reel. It also occurs randomly. Look out for the FTL symbol when playing in this mode, because if it lands on the middle reel, it will activate Jump bonus mode and transform any ordinary symbol into a mystery one giving extra wins. In this mode the Ion storm bonus is unavailable.
The last one is Fight mode. It can only be activated during the run mode. Standard symbols randomly turn wild as the Colonials battle Cylons on the slot. Wilds can even split into two giving the opportunity of gaining extra wins. One can also gain free-spin feature in this mode by landing 3 or more wilds giving the bettor extra 5 spins but with no multipliers.
- Ion storm: Activates randomly during the normal mode. In this game, up to five reels are turned fully wild. Ship and Battlestar Galactica logo do not appear in this period of time. Multiple winning combinations are paid out per pay way. If one lands more than one combination with different symbols, all of them pay out. If combined win consists of different tokens, only the highest one valued is going to be paid out.
- Jump Bonus: FTL symbol landed on reel number 3 activates it only during the run mode. It substitutes for any other ordinary ones and is displayed in all the empty positions. Scatter and Wild tokens can’t be replaced. Symbols that are not included in this state are Jack, Queen, King, Ace, and Ten. Wins in this mode are paid out by the same rules as in Ion storm feature.
