About Space Miners
Initially, the Space Miners slot from Relax Gaming is played on a six reel by three row grid. The grid is blocked in by rocks above and below that, and when mined, will reveal more grid spaces. Speaking of space, that is where we find the grid. There are many other rocks floating around in the background as well as other miners who fly by from time to time. The rock we are working on though is the main focus.
Wins are awarded for matching between three and six symbols in any position on three or more adjacent reels. This is a cascading slot, meaning winning tiles are removed and replaced by new ones. The process is repeated until no new wins are made. Any connecting rocks are then exploded to bring more symbols into the game and increase the number of ways to win. If you manage to get rid of all of the blocks, then you will be playing with up to 1,000,000 paylines. In Space Miners, you are able to win up to 50,000x of your total stake, which can happen when you have expanded to the max number of ways to win.
This game has a space mining theme, and the little alien characters look very much like the ones you find in Reactoonz. Symbols of the game include four differently coloured crystals as the lower payers and five alien miners, the red of which is the highest paying. The space cart full of crystals is the wild symbol and will expand to fill all vacant positions. The wild can also substitute for all other symbols to make a winning combination. When landing the spaceship bonus scatter you can trigger the free spins bonus round.

How To Play Space Miners
How to Set Your Stake
On the left side of the black bar that runs underneath the grid, there are plus and minus signs that can be used to toggle the size of the bet. Bets can be as small as 10p and as big as £20.
How to Spin the Reels
Directly in the centre of the bottom bar you can find the spin button. This is a circle shape and clicking on it will spin the reels for one rotation.
Space Miners Bonus Features
There are two power up features in the base game and four during free spins. These will help you clear the rocks in a much faster time. There is a horizontal power up which will destroy all of the rocks in a horizontal line and there is one that does the same for verticals. Then there is a cross power up which will only land during free spins. This can destroy rocks both horizontally and vertically. Also restricted to free spins, there is a 3x3 power up that blows up everything in a 3×3 area.
Landing three spaceship bonus scatters during the bonus game will trigger the free spins feature. Six free spins are your reward and any extra scatters that hit will deliver two more additional free spins. Landing a scatter during the bonus round will result in one extra spin. During the feature, any rocks that are removed will stay vacant for the rest of the feature to increase the amount of ways to win.
21.co.uk Review of Space Miners
Space Miners is a very easy on the eye video slot from Relax Gaming that feels like it should be part of the Reactoonz series. The exploding of the rocks is a great new twist in slot gaming. This feature can eventually lead to 1,000,000 ways to win, with a possible maximum win of up to 50,000x your bet.
