Propel yourself to stratospheric heights as you soar up on high for out of this world wins in the Apollo Rising mobile slot.
This is one of those IGT slot machines that, in our opinion, looks far better on Android phones and iPhones, than it does online.
The reason for this is simple – as a 100 payline slot, the reels are 5 by 8 rows high; meaning you have to play in Landscape and the symbols spin upwards, rather than downwards.
So as soon as you load it, it feels unusual and unfamiliar, unless you’re looking at it from the palm of your hand.
Though, once you take a closer look you’ll see that, actually, the Apollo Rising slot isn’t so completely alien or complicated.
It’s actually ridiculously simple, with just one big bonus feature that keeps on giving.
… and then two come along at once.
It seems incredibly coincidental that on the same day that the Apollo Rising slot game was released, Net Entertainment brought out their own version with Stickers Touch.
Though at first the two seem to have nothing in common, they share they fact that they one have one feature – as soon as the wild shows up on screen, it stays sticky and you get a free-respin of the rest of reels.
And whilst we won’t deny that Stickers stole our heart, our heads tell us that this Apollo Rising video slot is the one that hides the far larger and more satisfying wins.
Which is pretty huge, and not as hard to catch as you might think, as it has expanded wilds in the form of rockets that cover either reel 2, 3 or 4 (see images below).
And we’ve caught it enough times to know the feature hits frequently, though not always as hard you might like. Which is where the bad news come into play; this is an expensive mobile slot to play, with the minimum bet starting at 1 in cash per spin.
But that’s probably ok, as Apollo Rising needs someone to play it who’s been around the gambling block a few times, and knows the best way to budget their cash. It’s not as dangerous as many other mobile IGT machines, but if you don’t get those three wilds, this space exploration will soon run out of funds.
Still, no risk, no rewards, right?

Stacked Symbols: The space monkey and space dog come stacked two high, whilst the spaceman and woman are stacked three high. Makes it slightly easier to get multiple wins across these 100 paylines.
Expanding Wilds and Free Re-Spin: At any point, a wild in the form of a rocket, will blast on to your screen and fill up the whole of reel 2, 3 or 4.
You'll then get one more free re-spin of the rest of the reels, with that expanded wild sticky. If you get a second wild, you'll get another re-spin, and then a final third if a third wild shows up.
Mostly you'll be happy with one or two. But it's when all three show up that the big wins come into play.
The Apollo Rising mobile slot machine is a good looking game, with a whole family of Jetson like characters covering these 100 paylines.
But it's the wild rockets that will give you the kind of wins that will make you soar to whole new heights.
For fans of the original Wolf Rising slot who want something a little more modern and edgy, and have the budget to keep on spinning.
