Max Damage is a slot from Microgaming that plays on a space age theme. It uses the character from one of its most controversial titles from the last three years, Max Damage and the Alien attack, a slot game that plays more like a big money arcade game. In the original title you are paid out prizes for shooting down spaceships, in this late 2014 release, there’s a return to the original casino slot reel format that online slot machine players both know and love.
Visually Max Damage is a very appealing slot that play to the classic cartoon style that will be a hit with old timers and new lovers of the genre a like. It uses just the right level of animation together with loads of bright colours to create an attractive and immersive experience that glues you to the reels from the get go. The controls have a little bit of a star-ship feel to them, giving you the impression that you might actually be blasting off for a little interstellar combat with our hero, and the planets that sit in the background do everything necessary to aid this vision.
The Music on Max Damage is an addictive synth based, space age soundtrack that features little b-movie bubble noises confirming that this is a slot game that has its tongue planted firmly in its cheek. There are the required tech-style bleeps and squeaks that you want when you hit the spin button and a satisfying thud when the reels drop into place. Everything about this slot’s sonics has that necessary futuristic edge making it an addictive and immersive experience from the first time you load it up.
Base game wise, Max Damage uses the tried and test Microgaming system of 243 ways to win across the five reels that make up the grid. This is a fixed mechanism, but you are able to adjust your bet sizing to find the perfect wager level. In addition to the standard symbols available on the grid here, there are two special symbols. These are the green spaceship scatters, which grant access to the free spin round and the stacked wilds. These combination making symbols appear in vertical clusters on the reels making it easier to hit those big multiple prize combinations that offer the richest standard rewards.
Stop in three or more of the green alien scatters anywhere in view to activate the Max Damage bonus game. This takes you to a second set of reels where all your wins are doubled for the duration of your fifteen free spins. There’s more here than just combinations and multipliers however, as during every spin there’s a chance for a single wild to be added to each reel, giving you the opportunity to hit a maximum of five wilds. Needless to say this feature has the power to blast out some top level prizes.
Slot Professor Says
I am not sure if this game has been specially released to tempt players into putting their gaming bucks into the specialist arcade slot, Max Damage and the Alien Attack. None the less it does give you a very interesting playing experience that’s simple, but devastatingly effective. I have a feeling that we are going to be seeing a lot more from this character as he’s now featured in a couple of Microgaming titles and seems to be a little bit of a herald for new developments from this operator.
The basic reel game available from Max Damage has everything you’d expect from a Microgaming slot, including the 243 ways to win system that seems to feature on all of their games at the moment. To help you hit the wins the stacked wilds do exactly what they’re supposed to do, helping you hit those vital winning combinations en masse and triggering some of the biggest prizes on offer from this space aged slot game.
Max Damage really comes into its own with the superb feature game on offer here. With the added wilds every spin can turn into an absolute cascade of big money wins that can blow a whole load of cash into your bankroll at any moment. The best thing about this is it seems to have a fairly high activation frequency, which means that you can rely on hitting it a least once a session as long as you’ve done the mathematics with your spin cost and are not trying to whack all your cash out in just a few spins. Blast off and get lucky, what more can I say.
