Ever wondered what an alien music and crystal themed online slot would look like? Don’t worry, Microgaming and Foxium have you covered with this new release, a slot machine with high-end graphics and an unusual layout which will have you winning as much as 15,000x the stake in one round.
Sporting 5 reels which rely on clusters of symbols to deliver your prizes, Astro Legends: Lyra and Erion offer you big wins of up to $150,000 and will also incorporate wilds, multipliers, Sonic Respins and the Stardust Collection. Add to this the RTP of 96.5%, and the good news keeps piling on.
Betting and Prizes
You’re going to get a fairly limited range, of $0.10 to $10, which is understandable if you consider how much you can get from the game. No need to know what the line bet is worth, the paytable tells you how much you get back as a multiple for the total amount wagered.
The ultimate payout is going to come via a cluster of 22 or more Garnet icons, delivering 1,000x the bet in that case. Have all three wild multipliers to help out, at their highest value, and the jackpot could be worth 15,000x the bet then. With the right wager, you could get a win of $150,000 from just one very lucky round of Astro Legends.
It’s obviously a game with high volatility, but it also has a decent-sized Return to Player, set to 96.5%. You may or may not be lucky while playing this game, but over the course of its life the slot should return a fair amount of money to its players.
Astro Legends: Lyra and Erion Slot Features
The game relies on the Cluster Pays system, which is available in an increasing number of slot machines these days. You need 5 or more symbols in order to get a win, and they need to be of the same type and next to each other. The clusters have different payouts, depending on how many symbols are involved and of what type they are. As many as 22 icons are considered when forming a combo. The combinations need symbols to be in a diagonal and touching at least one other from the group. Vertically arranged symbols are not considered, even if they’re next to each other.
The Multiplier Wild is added to three red cells, and when appearing there it will have a random multiplier, varying from 2x to 5x. You add up the three values, to get the total multiplier which can be applied by these wilds when they’re together. The most you can get from them is 15x.
Sonic Respins can be activated at random, provided that you get all winning clusters in one round to use the same symbol. It will hold the involved symbols, and will respin the other positions. This continues for as long as you keep getting new symbols of that type, to improve the original clusters.
Another random feature is Stardust Collection. It has you collecting points each time, until you get 100. This triggers a new feature.
Lyra Spirit Bonus is that feature, which gives 3 lives to the wolf and you have to go through the 7 levels provided. Wins are collected, and the longer the wolf survives, the better the rewards.
Theme & Design
It’s going to feature some aliens and futuristic guitar players, but if you look closely this awesome design relies on images of gems and crystals. You get garnet, amethyst, peridot and several Royals for its symbols. It looks impressive, considering the basic icons which were used for it.
I liked Astro Legends: Lyra and Erion, it’s a slot machine which has a lot to offer, with unique features and excellent graphics inside.
