Microgaming and Foxium Presents: Astro Legends

Astro LegendsI tell you, one of the best things about this business is the innovative forces behind the games that get unveiled. Technology’s constant evolvement means that the games that get released evolve too and this is good news for all involved. The end of the month at Spin Palace is always a good thing because the end of the month means the unveiling of a brand new online video slot game. This time round the game is called Astro Legends: Lyra and Erion, and it’s the combined forces of Microgaming and Foxium. Foxium is its own entity, but it’s with tutelage from Microgaming that it has created its latest gaming extravaganza. However, while Microgaming provides the platform, Foxium provides the game, and it shows.

An Epic Tale Awaits

Of the many cool attributes that comes with this game, the first thing that will strike your attention is its story, and let me tell you, this one’s been given quite the tale. Set in a galaxy far…oh never mind, it’s somewhere in a galaxy and it centres around two space-age megastars.  You’ve got Lyra, from the planet Oratorio and the frontwoman for an intergalactic band. But this alien beauty is more than just a singer whose impressive ‘keytar’ solos wow the crowd,  she’s also a peacekeeper who collects stardust from crystals and gems in order for her to shape-shift.  When she shape-shifts, it’s into a spirit form of a wolf who in turn can run at incredible speeds. Lyra is lured to the planet Libretto by the other half of this game, Erion, an alien artificial being, and it is here where all the action will take place.

Why Play Games by Foxium?

Foxium has not been around for too long, but any casino gaming company that has the backing of Microgaming is one not to be sniffed at, and the quality of the games are impressive. There’s a fine line between quality and quantity, and I would guess that any successful business endeavour would want to be possess both those attributes. Microgaming is one of those companies that has both and I suspect it sees incredible potential in Foxium, which is why it’s allowed this company to use its Quickfire software to publish its content. Foxium’s collection of really cool themes are not just inventive, they also show a company with its finger on the pulse of what excites players. In addition to creating online and mobile slot games that look fantastic, Foxium has also instilled its games with exciting and alternative takes on long-held traditions, and it’s something you’ll see for yourself when you play Astro Legends.

Playing Astro Legends

Astro Legends doesn’t play like your conventional online video slots game, or any slots game for that matter. Gone is the traditional reel structure of 5 columns and anything between 9 and 25 paylines. Instead what you’re faced with is diamond-shaped board with 22 independent reels, or more accurately, 22 positions.

Wins are achieved by getting clusters of like-symbols to appear, and you’ll need at least 5 symbols in a cluster adjacent in order to be successful.  Only six symbols populate this board and while this might seem whimsical, there’s more going on than initially meets the eye. You’ve got geometric wild symbols which are accompanied by a random multiplier of between 2x and 5x and in addition to this, a high-stakes respins round also. This respin attribute can bring about an astronomical win of 15 000 times your bet, should you beat the odds.  Finally there’s a very exciting pick-me adventure bonus game that’s engrossing on the eye and if luck’s on your side, sweet on the wallet.

In this bonus game, Lyra will transform into her wolf spirit animal and start sprinting on the screen to collect and gather gems. Erion will try and curb her progress by raising crystal barriers in her way. Luckily you’re there and the onus is on you to guide her path so as to avoid Erion’s attempts to stop her. Get her through all six stages and you’ll come out tops with 20x your bet!

Astro Legends: Lyra and Erion, an intergalactic, psychedelic, synthwave-infused casino game with great winning possibilities is available to play at Spin Palace Online Casino. Are you ready to embark on this adventure?
