Battlestar Galactica is a Microgaming online pokie with a sci-fi theme based on the popular series created by Glen A. Larson. The game has a top jackpot of 1,400,000 and a huge range of features which keep things exciting.
You can play at a wide range of bet levels with the lowest bet with all ways being 30c and the highest being $15. You can choose to bet between 1 and 10 credits per way so there are a lot of betting options.
The Battlestar Galactica symbol is wild for everything but the scatters and five of a kind pays up to 15,000 credits if you're playing the max amount of credits on the winning spin.
The wilds also appear in stacks on the first reel so you can get a whole reel of wilds and the jackpot on three different ways in a single spin for a 45,000 credit jackpot.
There are three different game modes on Battlestar Galactica with each offering different ways to win. There is normal mode as well as Run Mode and Fight Mode. The mode can change at any time during regular play.
During normal mode three or more scattered ships award 15 free spins with all wins tripled. The free games cannot be re-triggered but the tripled wins can give some big pays including up to 135,000 credits.
During Run mode all wins pay from left to right and from right to left which gives you twice the winning chances on every spin. Get a Faster Than Light symbol anywhere on the middle reel and you win the FTL feature.
Once won all 10, J, Q, K and A symbols re-spin and turn into a mystery symbol. This feature makes it possible to get serious wins as you can get a whole screen of the symbols.
Fight Mode features extra wilds that can add single or split wilds to any reel positions which can give you even more than 243 ways to win. There is also a free spins feature that is won with three or more ships.
Win the feature and you get 5 free games where the Guns can award extra free spins. There is no multiplier on this feature which is a bit a let down.
The games biggest jackpot of 1,400,000 credits is won with the Ion Storm Feature that can be won at any time during regular play. This feature turns between 1 and 5 of the reels wild with all five paying the top jackpot.
Battlestar Galactica has a unique ranking system where every bet you make add to your experience bar. Fill the bar up and you gain a rank and new video content for the game. This does not have any effect on the jackpots but is a nice touch that really compliments the theme.
