Astro Babes is a Playtech-powered slot with 5 reels and 100 paylines – playable on all devices (such as laptops, tablets and smartphones) from £1 to £500 a spin, this space themed offering gives you wild reels if 1 of the babes fills her own reel. There’s also a free spins round where you can get up to 50 free spins
Visually, Astro Babes is set in a fictional space world – it looks fantastic. With a mesmerising soundtrack, you will see the 5 Astro Babes on the reels – you have Gwen, Betsy, Violet, Roxy and Bonny. Their individual weapons make up the other symbols – the most lucrative symbol is Bonny which gives you 8 times your stake for 5 across a payline.
There is a wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter – it will also reward you with 50 times your stake for 5 across a payline. The scatter, the rocket, is important in triggering the main bonus feature.
Look out for the 5 Astro Babe symbols which appear in 8-symbol high stacks – each reel has a colour. When an Astro Babe lands fully on the same coloured reel, the symbol turns into a wild reel. If you are lucky, you could end up with 5 wild reels which would lead to a 5,000 times stake win! This is known as the Astro Wild feature.
The main attraction is the Hyperspace Delivery Bonus feature which is played when 3 or more rocket scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels simultaneously – 3, 4 or 5 scatters will reward you with 12, 20 or 50 free spins respectively.
More importantly, the Astro Babe symbols that show up on the same coloured reel will nudge up or down to fill the whole reel. This will trigger the Astro Wild feature turning that reel into a wild reel. Essentially, you could get 5 wild reels on every single free spin!
I really like Astro Babes, it looks superb and has 2 highly rewarding bonus features if you’re luck is in. I found the Hyperspace Delivery Bonus feature to be where the real big wins will come from due to the nudging Astro Babes symbols.
I found it to be a medium to high variance game so you need patience (and luck) to win the 5,000 times stake maximum on each spin/free spin. If you like the space theme, I recommend you try Playtech’s Space Invaders which is based on the iconic arcade game.
