Forget UFOs, it’s all about birds in the Pigeons from Space slot by Playtech and Rarestone Gaming. This unique outer space adventure has Blue and Purple pigeons as part of the main action. Landing both will trigger the Free Games feature with 6 free games, but there’s also a Respin feature to enjoy. These can all lead to max wins of 5,000 x your total stake. Keep an eye out for Wilds and Crop Circle symbols in the bonus features too as these could lead to some big wins. But how does this game compare to similar slots already on the market? Find out below in our unbiased and detailed Pigeons from Space review.

Pigeons from Space Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

Reels/Paylines: 5 reels + 36 paylines

Stakes Range: 10p to £20 per spin

RTP: 94.95%

Max Win: 5,000 x bet

The Pigeons from Space lot is played on 5 reels and comes with 36 paylines. The reel setup is a little different from your usual video slot in terms of looks, but it still plays the same in that all wins pay on adjacent reels from left to right, starting from reel 1.

Stakes range from just 10p up to £20 per spin. While it may not cater to those who prefer much larger stakes, it should still cater to most pockets. The default bet size is £1, so make sure you adjust your total bet if you want to spin away at less than that. Simply hit the coins icon below the spin button to change your stake.

The Pigeons from Space RTP is 94.95%, which is well below the industry average of 96% for an online slot. When it comes to volatility, this game is in the medium to high range.

The maximum win is 5,000 x your total stake, which isn’t bad but not as high as I thought it would be considering the RTP rate and variance levels. Your best chance of landing the top prize will come during one of the bonus features. More on those further down.

Theme – watch out for the blue and purple pigeons

Theme: Space

High Value Symbol: Sphinx

Compatibility: Mobile, Tablet, Desktop

The theme in the Pigeons from Space slot is a unique one. The title gives it away as it is indeed about pigeons in space. Blue and Purple pigeons in little flying saucers to be exact. These are the key to triggering the bonus features. The characters remind me of the Italian pigeons from the classic Animaniacs cartoon series.

The unique reel setup is great and the visuals are bold and colourful to really grab your attention. The whole setup is really nicely done, and I’m a fan of the soundtrack too. It’s really simple but it ties in really well with the overall theme.

On the reels, the A-J Royals make up the lower-paying symbols. These are joined by iconic landmarks around the world as higher-paying symbols – the Opera House, the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, the Statue of Liberty and the Sphinx of Egypt. The Sphinx symbol is the most rewarding, paying 0.3, 0.8 or 1.5 x your stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

The game’s Wild only comes into play during the bonus features, but it pays up to 1.5 x your stake if 5 of them land. Here’s a useful list of the symbols you will come across in the game:

Pigeons from Space Mobile

Slot provider Playtech deploys the latest HTML5 technology for all of its online slots. Pigeons from Space can be played on PCs, laptops, mobiles and tablet devices. The funky reel setup works really well on a smartphone with none of the visual quality compromised.

Pigeons from Space Bonus Features

There are 2 main bonus features to enjoy in the Pigeons from Space slot game – a Respin feature and a Free Games feature. The Wild symbols come into play during both bonus features and Crop Circle symbols can also land to deliver some potentially big wins. Let’s run you through how both features work, starting with the Respin feature.

Respin feature

If either a Blue Pigeon or a Purple Pigeon lands on the reels in the base game, the Respin feature will be triggered. Note that if both land, you will not trigger this bonus feature.

You will start with 1 respin, but another one will be awarded if a Blue or Purple Pigeon symbol lands. If a Blue Pigeon lands, all Wild symbols it drops will remain on the screen during the whole feature. If a Purple Pigeon lands, the Crop Circle symbol it drops will remain for the duration of the feature. The value of the Crop Circle will be paid once at the end of the bonus round.

As mentioned, 1 additional respin is awarded for every pigeon that lands on the reels. If no pigeon lands on a spin, the feature will come to an end. It’s as simple as that.

Free Games feature

pigeons-from-space-slot-free-spins-feature

This bonus feature is triggered when Blue and Purple Pigeons both land on the reels in the base game. As part of the triggering spin, the Blue Pigeon will drop Wild symbols and the Purple Pigeon will drop a Crop Circle symbol.

You are awarded 6 free spins, and there’s no potential to land any more than that as no retriggers are possible. Any Wilds or Crop Circles that are dropped will remain on the screen until the bonus feature ends, with any cash prize on the Crop Symbol being paid at the end of the feature.

The Respin feature cannot be triggered during this bonus round

Originality








A lot of slot providers churn out your run-of-the-mill games all too often, which can come across as quite lazy. That’s certainly not the case here as Playtech and Rarestone Gaming have produced a fairly unique title in terms of theme and reel layout. I like the way it’s been done and it makes a refreshing change to the usual 5×3 or 5×4 reel setup.

The Pigeon from Space slot isn’t packed full of features, which is one of the things that pulls its overall rating back, to be honest. That and the low RTP rate of 94.95%. But the 2 bonus features it does offer are pretty good, albeit fairly simple.

If you’re looking for new slots that are a little different from the norm, this is well worth a try. But if it’s in-depth features you’re after, I’m not sure this one is for you. But feel free to try our demo first as it’s a great way to test out the game before deciding if you want to use your own funds at one of the best online casinos.

For more unique gameplay with a space-related theme, check out NetEnt’s Space Wars 2 Powerpoints and Push Gaming’s Space Stacks slot. Both have completely different layouts from the norm and come with some fantastic bonus features.

Pros
  • 5,000 x bet max wins
  • Fun Respin and Free Games features
  • Great on mobile
Cons
  • Low paying symbols
