Barcrest's Money Mad Martians Cosmic Cash
Barcrest's Money Mad Martians can be played for Real Money at the following site:
This space themed Barcrest slot has become a popular choice for video slot players throughout the United Kingdom, this is a fun slot to play with its vibrant graphics and three different bonuses.
The game play is very similar to the land based version and the three bonuses can be very rewarding, firstly this game contains shuffling reels which means the reels may shuffle to award a win at the end of a losing spin, this happens quite often and helps to keep your bankroll going whilst you search for the jackpot.
If you land the bonus symbol on the first, middle and last reel then you have a chance of hitting the Asteroid bonus, one of the reel symbols will contain the bonus and the other two will award a small multiplier. If you are awarded the Asteroid bonus you will need to select one Asteroid from the 24 hovering around in space, this will either reveal a Martian or a multiplier. On the first pick there is a chance of hitting the planet bonus which can award the jackpot of 500x your stake!
However if a Martian is selected, surrounding Asteroids explode and will also be revealed, this will continue if you hit another Martian (like a chain reaction) which is how you can clear all the Asteroids. The bonus ends either when no picks remain or all the Asteroids have been revealed. The final award consists of the sum of all revealed multiplier values times your total initial stake.
Back to the planet bonus ... if you were lucky enough to hit this on the first Asteroid pick then you will fly into space past three different planets which represent pot values as seen on other Barcrest games, the purple planet awards the lowest prize, the Earth like planet offers a slightly better win but you really want the Martians to stop at the Fire jackpot planet which awards a whopping 500x your stake, this is by far the best feature on the game and also the most potentially lucrative.
To summarise this is a fresh game from Barcrest, very well designed and generously structured with a house edge of 5%, this game does seem to keep you playing for much longer than many other slots we've played, probably due to the frequency of the bonuses and the shuffling reels.
A game definitely worth playing and will remain a favourite for many Barcrest fruit machine fans.
