You know the little MTV Spaceman? I always thought MTV had deep pockets but I’m starting to get the feeling they’re not paying him enough. It has gotten to the point that he’s had to find other projects on the side to be able to afford his lifestyle. Some of the gigs are outright dangerous as well. Like when he had to travel deep into space to entertain the rest of us in the new Gravity Bonanza slot.
Pragmatic Play might build and fuel the rocket but it’s clearly Spaceman’s show. He’s not only risking a lot and working his glutes off, he’s doing a fantastic job as well. From the looks of this extravagant backdrop, all of us are in for a treat.
Can Spaceman deliver another sensational performance? Let’s find out!
What Planet Is This?
Even though the landscape looks a bit too sandy for any civilization to flourish, it does look nice. I mean, who can argue with the view, right? The various stars and planet symbols back up the overall theme and I like the variety. Choosing a colorful grid really makes the game pop and with the Spaceman calling the shots as a conductor, you know you’re in good hands.
It’s a great looking game but considering it’s by Pragmatic Play, I guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Bet Limits: €0.20 – 240
Paylines: Cluster Pays
Release Date: September 28th, 2023
Features: Black Hole & Gravity Bonus, Free Spins with Random Multipliers
Cluster Wins and Tumble Feature
Playing on a bigger 7×7 grid is always fun and to be preferred over smaller ones like a 4×3 etc. It’s a cluster pays kind of slot and in order to get the Tumble feature rolling, you’ll have to put at least 5 symbols together for a win.
For those of you new to the Tumble feature, it simply means that whenever there’s a win, all symbols involved are removed and replaced by new ones, possibly leading to another win.
Experienced players also know that by using the Tumble mechanics, a win can turn into a much bigger one.
Black Hole and Gravity Bonus
Adding a Black Hole to the game is a smart move and maybe this is how the ones who are not at an Elon Musk intellectual level can find out how they actually work. The symbol isn’t hard to spot, once it appears.
Only one of them can show on a spin and whenever it does, a random symbol is selected and sucked into it. After a Tumble, if more of them show, they will also be sucked into the hole. All of them are then collected in the Gravity Bonus, which you can find on the left.
When the Tumbles are over, your Gravity Bonus will pay out and hopefully it’s a big one!
Free Spins Can Be Bought
I will cover the Free Spins in just a second but I wanted to mention the fact that you can pay for them by clicking on the Buy button, sitting on the left side. The asking price is 100x your bet, which isn’t bad so it’s definitely worth considering.
Enter the Gravity Bonanza Bonus Round Extravaganza
Whether you’re into astronomy or not, the real action is waiting for you in the bonus round. What a surprise, right? You’ll get there either by paying for them like I mentioned above, or collecting 3 or more scatters. Depending on how many you can score, you will get between 10-50 Free Spins.
Since I wasn’t good enough to do it on my own, I had to go for the buy option. As you can see in the image above, I ended up with 4 scatters, resulting in 15 Free Spins.
How to Score Black Hole Multipliers
The Black Hole is very much in play here as well. It can hit with a random multiplier of 2x up to 10x. Not only can you maximize the Black Hole effect, you can also get up to an additional 50 Free Spins by landing 3 or more scatters.
Get More Spins
During my test run, I managed to retrigger them not once, but twice, for another 10 Free Spins on both occasions.
Wins, Wins and More Wins
I’m not sure if it was pure luck on my end or if this is just what kind of wins are waiting for you on this planet but wow! Thanks to the Black Hole and the retriggering of additional Free Spins, I managed to pull off quite a few big wins, which of course makes one love the game.
It Doesn’t Always Pay Off But It Can
No matter how much they ask for when you take the Buy-route to Free Spins, it’s always a risk. It’s never a guarantee you’ll make that money back but this time it paid off. I spent Ξ160,000 which ended up getting me 15 Free Spins. My original bet was Ξ1,260.
When it was all said and done, much thanks to the impeccable guidance of Spaceman, I was able to pocket Ξ197,064.00. Clearly the number looks a lot bigger than the actual value but hey, it’s still a win in my book.
Gravity Bonanza – Pass or Play?
Great graphics and popping colors will always get your attention from the beginning but not all games manage to hold on to it. I wasn’t sure what to expect from Gravity Bonanza but enough happens in the base game to make me want to keep playing.
As in most cases, the full experience comes from the bonus round. If you never make it there, which happens a lot in slots, you will be missing out. I’m happy that I was able to cough up the 100x for Free Spins as it was a great time and I will definitely recommend giving Gravity Bonanza a shot.
He presents shows, he’s being handed out as awards and now he rules the intergalactic adventures at Pragmatic Play. Is he the swiss army knife of slot and can do it all? He might be and I’m curious in what surroundings he’ll pop up next.
