The Solar Nova slot is a slow burn that might just explode and consume your wallet, or leave you with hot fiery riches of 10,000x your bet.
Set in the far reaches of space, overlooking a dying sun, this Solar Nova mobile slot looks huge, set on a 9×9 grid with beautiful gems that create a win when 6 or more symbols touch.
This is a cluster pays grid slot with avalanching wins, meaning one spin of the reels can last a lot longer as winning symbols explode and more come tumbling down.
But it’s the wild symbols that will explode into your heart, with the solar wild always in the center of the game, reminding you that wins come easy, and the rocket wild symbols moving around the screen on each win, increasing by a +1 multiplier when it does.
That’s something to bear in mind when you start playing. Not unlike the Jammin Jars 2 slot, it feels like you are getting lots and lots of wins but none of them feel like it’s getting you anywhere.
That’s because you need two things to get big wins in this Solar Nova slot machine: big multiplier and big clusters.
In the base game, you get that using the wilds for the most part. That Solar wild in the middle of the reel can randomly change a horizontal or vertical row of symbols into any one of the same symbols, and the rocket wilds have an increasing multiplier on each win.
Both reset on the next paying spin.
As we said, this is a volatile video slot game. The base game is a pretty space journey through the stars, but it takes a while to get to the Sunshine of wins.
You get there by getting 3 rocket wilds on screen, or you can simply buy the bonus. Either way, what makes the Solar Nova free spins bonus special is that the rocket wilds stay on screen and start walking around one spin at a time.
They might even teleport around the screen, guaranteeing a big win. These multipliers can multiply each other, giving you huge wins. That solar wild, if it’s part of 8 wins during the free spins, turns into a massive 3×3 wild.
It’s pretty hard to get there, but facing a dying sun is dangerous business. But this Solar Nova casino slot does have incredible energy that surprised us, but in a good way.

Cluster Pays and Avalanching Wins: Matching 6 or more symbols touching horizontally and vertically will create a win. When you get a win, those symbols explode and more will come tumbling down from above.
Wild Symbols: The W can replace other symbols in a win, and can contribute to multiple clusters wins.
Rocket Wild: The rocket wild substitutes for all symbols. If it's part of a cluster win, the symbol will randomly move to an adjacent position.
Every rocket has a multiplier, which increases each time it is part of a win. If there is more than one rocket part of a win in a cluster, the multipliers multiply each other.
Symbol Teleportation: The Rocket Wild can randomly trigger to teleport anywhere during any spin, to increase your chances of winning.
Free Spins: Three rocket wilds will trigger 6 free spin bonus round. The three rocket wilds will stay sticky throughout the free spin bonus, and the multiplier increases with each win. In the free spin, there is a maximum of 4 rockets appearing at any one time.
Solar Wild: The Solar Wild always appears in a fixed position in the middle of the game on every single spin. It can be used as a normal wild or:
This Iron Dog Solar Nova slot has lots of wilds, and lots of features, it's a shame that it takes so much work and such big multipliers to get to that 10,000x your bet max win.
That said, once you accept that this is a volatile game where you need to hit some pretty dramatic free spin bonus round, this is a fun machine to play.
Fans of the Jammin Jars slot will appreciate these mechanics, fans of more easy-going grid slots will not. But once you see those rocket wild roam around the screen with bigger and bigger multipliers, you'll want to come back to this far-reaching solar nova.
