A rather unusual anime themed 100-payline slot game from IGT. This futuristic looking game utilises an unconventional reel structure along with an interface that looks like something out of a cheeky science fiction TV drama. Apollo Rising is an great game to play and offers plenty of quirkiness.
Bonus: Rising Respins Feature
Rather than a standard 5 x 3-reel structure, Apollo Rising offers you eight rows of action on each of the 5 reels. This configuration is known as 'colossal' in some other games that also utilise it. The key here is that all 100 paylines are active on every spin. All you have to do is determine how much you are willing to wager on each payline.
Symbols can appear stacked on the reels, and often do. Stacked symbols increase your winning potential along with a Wild symbol that appears on reels 2-4. The Wild symbol also acts as the Bonus symbol in this game. It triggers bonus play whenever it appears.
In terms of gameplay, the Apollo Rising interface is a bit different. Controls are found to the right of the reels rather than below. At the centre of the control panel are + and – buttons used to adjust your line bet. The large, yellow button with the blue arrow is the 'Spin' button; to the right is the 'Auto Spin' button while the 'Settings' button is to the left. Above the buttons are all the displays for keeping track of your winnings, your current balance, and your total bet for the next spin.
Apollo Rising Slot Special Features
The Rising Re-Spins feature is the only special feature in Apollo Rising. It is triggered whenever you land a Wild symbol during base play. That symbol will do two things. First, it will automatically transform into a rocket that will expand to cover more positions and potentially generate more wins. Second, it will award one free spin for every Wild landed. Fill all three centre reels with wild symbols and your win will be substantial.
