Theme: race to intergalactic jackpots in a cosmic pursuit
High Value Symbol: Purple Alien Racer
Compatibility: Mobile, Tablet, Desktop
With a space theme, the Galactic Racers Dream Drop slot takes you on a cosmic pursuit where you race to intergalactic jackpots. Visually quite similar to Quickspin’s Cash Truck 2, you head to a futuristic city which resembles Mega-City One from the Judge Dredd comic book series and subsequent films/games.
Set on the back of a jet engine-powered spaceship, you join alien racers on a cosmic track. With a dystopian feel graphically, the soundtrack is rather understated with electronic/synthesiser sounds as you spin the reels.
On the reels, symbols include 4 low-value computer chips and 7 higher-value alien racers. The purple alien racer is the best-paying symbol awarding 2, 5 or 10 x your total bet for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.
Then you have the Turbo Jet Engine Wild symbol which substitutes for all paying symbols on the 5 reels. Furthermore, there is a Trophy Bonus symbol which is key to triggering the free spins. Below is a list of all symbols along with their payouts and functions:
Galactic Racers Dream Drop Mobile
Detecting whatever device you opt for, Galactic Racers Dream Drop can be played on mobile, tablet, laptop and/or PC devices. Compatible with iOS and Android smartphones, I recommend a larger screen for the best visual experience.
Galactic Racers Dream Drop Bonus Features
Galactic Racers Dream Drop has 4 bonus features. With Multiplier Frames that apply multipliers when wins pass through them, the free spins come with sticky Multiplier Frames. Their multiplier values increase with non-winning free spins. Finally, there are 5 progressive jackpots to be won randomly.
Multiplier Frames feature
Look out for Multiplier Frames appearing randomly on the reels. When they land, they will multiply any winning combinations that pass through them. With up to 5 Multiplier Frames appearing, wins passing through more than 1 Multiplier frame will see the multiplier values added up and applied. The Multiplier Frames then reset for your next spin.
Free Spins feature
Landing 3, 4 or 5 Trophy Bonus symbols will trigger the Free Spins feature with 8, 12 or 15 free spins or laps respectively. Multiplier Frames on the triggering spin will be brought into the feature.
Importantly, Multiplier Frames are sticky until the end of the feature. Additionally, their multipliers increase on every non-winning free spin. If a Trophy Bonus symbol lands, you will be rewarded with 1 extra free spin, with no limits.
Players located outside the UK have a Buy Feature option. Buy your way into the Free Spins feature for 80 x your total bet. You’ll be rewarded with 3, 4 or 5 Trophy Bonus symbols for 8, 12 or 15 free spins. Finally, the RTP increases to 96.5% for the non-jackpot version.
Dream Drop Bonus feature
The Dream Drop Bonus feature is triggered randomly when 1 Dream Drop symbol lands on each of the 5 reels during a random Jackpot Spin. Once in, you’ll come across a 5×4 screen with the triggering Dream Drop symbols in place.
Basically, jackpots are won by filling reels with Dream Drop symbols. Filling 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 reels will reward you with the Rapid, Midi, Maxi, Major and Mega Jackpots respectively. Here is what you’ll win:
|Mega Jackpot||€500,000 to €3 million|
|Major Jackpot||€25,000 to €50,000|
The current real-time Mega Jackpot is £2,528,806.15.
Galactic Racers Dream Drop Verdict: build up multipliers + win progressive jackpots
The Galactic Racers Dream Drop slot is another in a long line of Dream Drop games by Relax Gaming. Visually though, it does resemble a cross between Hot Rod Racers (Relax) and Cash Truck 2 (Quickspin).
Whilst you are taken away to an intergalactic city of the future, it doesn’t stand out graphically compared to other Relax Gaming titles such as the recently-released Lure of Fortune. The game feels like it’s been rushed (probably like the racers feel).
In terms of the gameplay, Wild Frames see multipliers apply to wins passing through them. The key is to get a winning combination passing through several Wild Frames which sees multipliers added together.
In the free spins, Wild Frames are sticky which increases your chances of landing wins with multipliers. Non-winning outcomes will see multiplier values increase so hopefully you’ll get a decent win on your last free spins. This can lead to 10,000 x bet max wins.
In the Dream Drop version, you have the chance to win 5 progressive jackpots. The Mega Jackpot is the big appeal with payouts of up to €3 million. At the time of writing (November 2023), there have been 11 Mega Jackpot winners so it does pay out fairly frequently.
In summary, Galactic Racers Dream Drop isn’t one of Relax Gaming’s best releases. However, it does offer decent win potential and another option if you want a crack at winning progressive jackpots.
If you want an intergalactic mission with serious win potential, NetEnt’s Starburst XXXtreme is capable of delivering 200,000 x bet payouts.
- Progressive jackpots/10,000 x bet max wins
- Sticky Multiplier Frames in free spins
- Design not as good as other Relax Gaming slots
- Very high volatility
