Nowadays it is customary for Microgaming to launch high profile games with much fanfare. One of the first Microgaming titles to get pre-release publicity was The Great Galaxy Grab. Launched in 2009, it was the 500th title in the Microgaming portfolio. There were two new aspects in The Great Galaxy Grab online pokie. It had graphics in 3D. It was based on a story that was given effect in the bonus game. You can play The Great Galaxy Grab video pokie at all Microgaming online casinos like Casino Mate, Spin Palace and Royal Vegas.
The story is narrated in an animated clip as the game loads. Captain Bronzebeard is spending too much time with his new space galleon, Stella. His wife Scarlet feels slighted and takes off into space after stealing Stella’s heart. The captain, accompanied by his crew Deckhand Dan, Trusty Rusty and Dozer, give chase. The lead characters in the story and the hot spots in the space chase are the symbols on the reels.
The Scarlet scatter symbols trigger the Space Chase bonus game. Every time the feature is triggered you play the next game in the sequence. In all there are six exciting bonus features in the Space Chase, each played at one of the galactic hot spots. The captain firsts visits the Astrobank to withdraw funds needed for the journey. You also get to select 6 Astro Doubloons and win bonus credits. The captain has to fill up his spaceship, so the next stop is the Gas Station. In this bonus game you have match four of the same fuel logos in order to win a multiplier. The third stop is at the Diner. You choose one of the items from the menu for bonus credits. If you think you have not won enough then you can change the order twice. In the Saloon you play some gambling games. In the first one you have to predict which card is higher in order to win bonus multipliers. In the second game you have to complete a poker hand for bonus credits. The action then shifts to the Casino for more games of chance. You spin the wheel to win bonus multipliers and if you are lucky then you will get more re-spins. The captain realises that he needs to buy gifts for his wife in order to placate her. So the Space Chase ends at the Mall. You buy gifts and win bonus credits for each purchase.
