The Great Galaxy Grab is an online 5-reel 25-payline video slot machine powered by Microgaming software. It’s full of wilds, free spins, scatter pays and multiple bonus features. The paytable reflects more of a high variance slot machine, but the small wins can still keep your bankroll alive which keeps you playing longer.
The Great Galaxy Grab is a space themed slot game, with a bit of a twist. Your mission is to help Captain Bronzebeard work his way through the numerous space features for cash prizes.
The theme is well carried out on the reels and beyond, with a unique atmosphere that most players will appreciate. The paylines are plentiful, which help make more winning payline combinations on the reels. The only downside to having added paylines is the fact there are more coins required to keep them all active. The Great Galaxy Grab is a coin based game and players can play between $0.01 and $0.25 per line, up to 20 coins each. This makes for an ideal high stakes game, but the lower bets make it flexible for just about anyone. The paylines may be reduced to make the minimum bet even less, however; it’s recommended that all paylines stay enabled for maximum winning potential.
The technical aspect of the slot is more advanced than most games on the software, especially since it’s not one of the most recent games. The animations, soundtrack and interactive bonus features give you a new take on a classic game, which keeps you more engaged throughout your slot playing session.
There are scatters and multiplying wilds, which can also help substantially increase your bankroll. The wild symbol, “G” logo, will help complete winning payline combinations and multiply wins at the same time. Furthermore, three wilds will trigger the 10 free games with a x3 multiplier. During the free games all wins are tripled and the feature can be re-triggered. The scatter is Steel Scarlet, three or more of her in any position will activate the Space Chase bonus. Additionally, the scatter will award payouts based on the total bet according to the paytable.
The Space Chase Bonus is great because it gives you variety when you activate it each time with 6 different bonus features; the Bank Bonus Feature, Refuel Bonus Feature, Diner Bonus Feature, Saloon Bonus Feature, Casino Bonus Feature, and the Mall Bonus Feature. All of these features are pretty profitable, of course some more than others. The cool thing about this also is if you leave the game, the Space Chase bonus stays put until you are ready to play again and you will pick up where you left off once you trigger the bonus feature again.
There are a lot of reasons players play The Great Galaxy Grab. The jackpots are sizeable, the bonus features keep you entertained and the theme is engaging.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring™ is a 5-reel online slot game featuring animations, images, and characters from the hit movie. With 243 ways to win, free spins feature with a random wild reel, stacked wild symbols and The Eye of Sauron expanding wild feature, this game is sure to please your eyes and your pocketbook!
Or so I thought, until I tried it for myself. It appears to be a very high variance slot, meaning decent wins are very hard to come by, but when they do it’s cashout time. After trying this slot a few times, I found it ate through my money quite fast, but I will go back and try it once in a while hoping to catch it at a time when it’s feeling generous.
The paytable is very weak in my (and many others) opinion, I think if you hit 5 of a kind of anything (even on a 243-way slot) you should get at least your bet back, but on this slot 5 tens returns less than your bet. You get excited to see some stacked wilds lining up during your spin, only to be disappointed in the end result since the only time you can get a decent win is by lining up 5 of a kinds with several wilds on the screen.
Free spins are triggered when three or more scattered rings land on the reels during a spin. You are awarded 15 free spins with a random wild reel on every spin, and three or more rings retriggers the feature. Even though the free spins bonus features a random wild reel on each spin, there should be a multiplier for those free spins like many other slots have. Having a multiplier in free spins would make up for the weak paytable, but since the highest possible win on this slot is already so high I guess they decided against it.
Some people have had good luck with this slot, but many others are not pleased with this highly hyped and anticipated slot from MicroGaming.
The Lord of the Rings online slot game utilizes Cinematic Spins™ – which allows movie clips to act as moving backgrounds behind the reels during spins. Win sequences and expanding wilds also make use of cinematic clips, instead of traditional animated graphics. I found that I liked the movie clips playing in the background, some people find them distracting, I think it is definitely a good looking game.
Update: Finally hit a decent win for the bet size. Free spins hit two big 5 of a kind spins, one with Frodo, and I ended up with $68 from a 30 cent bet. See the screenshot below.
Tiger’s Eye is another recently released video slot by MicroGaming. It features 40 paylines, a free spins bonus round that features an escalating multiplier, and stacked wilds on all 5 reels.
The free spins feature is triggered when 3 or more scatter symbols land on the reels during a spin. Regardless of the number of scatters involved in triggering the feature, you are awarded 10 free spins. The great thing about the free spins is the escalating multiplier. The first free spin has a multiplier of x1 and then it increases with each spin until the last one is multiplied by 10! You can end up with some very nice wins from this feature.
There is also a “Gamble” feature that allows you to gamble a win from any spin or the full free spin feature. Pick the color of the next card drawn from a deck to double your win, you can continue doubling until a set limit is reached.
I really like this new slot, it seems to hit free spins quite often. You are only given 10 free spins, but if you hit a bunch of stacked wilds at a high multiplier, you can get some huge wins. This slot and Dolphin Coast are the best two slots recently released by MicroGaming. They have definitely been better to me than recent new slots.
Play Tiger’s Eye now at any of these reputable MicroGaming online casinos.
