About the Solar Nova slot

Iron Dog Studios has taken a step away from its normal type of slot game to bring us Solar Nova. This is certainly not one of their normal layouts - as they tend to stick to Megaways and standard layouts. The Solar Nova slot is a gemstone-themed game that has a touch of the old classic Starburst thrown in.

The slot is great - not one of the most original, but it takes a well-known theme and adds in some Iron Dog flavour. The colours are bright, the gems are glowing, and it looks like a game of Jewel Crush, but with the added bonus of being able to crush some big wins. So, head into the outer limits, grab a winning cluster and try out for some astronomical wins.

Solar Nova Gameplay

Whatever device you want to play on, you can spin for anywhere between £0.10 to £50 on this huge 9 x 9 grid packed full of 81 colourful symbols. In the middle of the grid you will see the solar wild symbol. This symbol will stay there throughout the gameplay, while the other 80 symbols will drop randomly around it.

The Solar Nova slot has high variance, meaning it will pay out at a lower pace. The game doesn't run on a standard payline model but uses a cluster pays system. You will need a minimum of 6 matching symbols together either horizontally or vertically to generate a win. As expected, the more matching symbols you get in a cluster, the better. The base number is 6, and the best paying clusters are made of 25+ symbols. Gems of different colours will have different payouts. You can see the fullt list in the paytable of the Solar Nova slot, by clicking the trophy icon from the menu.

Apart from the main Solar Wild symbol, there will be secondary wilds called Rocket Wild symbols. These can drop randomly - and, just as with all wilds, they substitute for normal paying symbols and help to fill out multiple clusters at once. Land the right symbols and you can win 10,000 times your stake!

Solar Nova Bonus Features

The Solar Nova slot stands out from other gemstone-themed slots with its main features:

Tumble feature: The tumble feature is also known as the cascading feature. It basically means that the winning symbols will be removed and replaced with new symbols every time. If these new symbols create new clusters, the process repeats until no more wins are created.

Central Solar Wild: As well as acting as a wild, this symbol can also trigger other random features - the Solar Flare feature and the Solar Nova feature. You can read about them below.

Solar Flare: The Solar Flare feature works together with the Solar wild and might change symbols in its column or row into matching symbols. The feature can get activated on any random losing spin in the base game. In a free spins round, this can also be triggered on winning spins.

Solar Nova: The Solar Nova slot gets its name from this famous feature, which is exclusive to the free spins round. Here's how it works. The Wild Solar can get upgraded to Solar Nova with the counter maintained throughout the duration of the bonus. The Solar Nova feature will make the wild increase its size to 3x3 for one tumble.

Rocket Wilds: Rocket wilds have multiple roles. They replace standard paying symbols, and also have a multiplier role. It's worth mentioning that the Rocket wilds are not removed by the Tumble feature. They move to a random position nearby when being part of a win. When generating a win as part of a tumble, the multiplier increases by 1.

Symbol Teleport Feature: This special feature of the Solar Nova slot can trigger randomly - and it will cause the Rocket Wild to switch places with a standard symbol to help generate wins.

Free Spins: You will need 3 Rocket Wilds to trigger the free spins round. When this happens, you will get 6 free spins. The Rocket Wilds move to a random adjacent position before each spin and after being included in a win.

Solar Nova slot Review

If you know your slots, then you will already be familiar with games like Solar Nova. It offers a mix of Starburst aesthetics with gemstome crush-style gameplay. Solar Nova manages to take a popular theme and add some features not seen elsewhere to it - especially the very unique Sticky Solar Wild symbol.

The Solar Nova slot does have the feel of Jammin’ Jars, especially in the free spins round - with the 6 free spins triggered and the multiplier wilds. However, there are for sure unique elements that take you on board for an astronomical adventure. Rocket Wilds start moving around, away from each other, and towards each other - generating great winning potential.
