How To Play Orion Slot

It’s always a good idea to view the paytable before you play slots online. With this in mind, click ‘View Pays’ to see the bet line mappings prize symbol values and learn how the special features work.

Orion is the highest value symbol and will pay 1,000x your bet line stake for 5 of a kind. Wild symbols appear in stacks and substitute for all symbols except scatters. In order to make a winning combination, matching symbols must appear in succession from left to right on an enabled bet line, beginning at the leftmost reel.

Scatter symbols are the exception to this rule and can combine anywhere on the reels. Get 3 or more scatters for a payout of up to 50x your total stake, for 5 scatters. This will also trigger the Orion’s free spins feature. You will be awarded 8 free spins, during which any portion of a stacked wild will slide to fully cover the reel. Get 3 or more scatters in the feature to add 8 more free spins to your remaining total.

Setting up this game is a simple process and we recommend that you click ‘Expert’ to open up the full range of user options. You can then use the ‘+’ & ‘-’ buttons to set your number of bet lines, coin value and number of coins accordingly. The total cost per spin will be displayed in the ‘Bet’ box. When you’re ready to play, either click ‘Spin’ to play manually or ‘Autoplay’ to initiate up to 500 automated spins.

The ‘Options’ menu allows you to set up quick spins, turn on/off various game sounds and alter the graphics quality. Click ‘Stats’ to see your number of spins and biggest wins for the current session. The speaker icon in the top right controls the volume and the question mark opens up a help menu.

Orion Slot Tips

You can play Orion video slot at Slotorama and Comeon Casino but it’s not available on mobile. You can use bonus cash to play Orion but it’s not used to headline any welcome packages, so there are no free spins offers for this slot. We don’t recommend this game for playing through the wagering requirements of a casino bonus, as it’s pretty risky.

We tested this game at £5 per spin and found that while we only went 5 spins without winning at the most, the majority of wins came in at less than our total stake. However, because the wilds are stacked, we did get a few nice wins of £65, £100 and £117.

The best chance of a big win comes in the free spins game, where any portion of a wild that is on a reel will slide to cover it completely. Our first free spins game was extremely disappointing and we only won £9 which is very poor for a feature such as this. However, we persisted and managed to align 3 stacks of wilds during our next free spins game to win a total of £879.50.

Is Orion The Right Slot For You?

Orion slot is a medium to high variance game, so you will need to be willing to take a risk in playing it. Although not likely to change your life, there are some big wins to be had but you will need an expendable bankroll to chase them.

The return to player (RTP) is 95.21% which gives the casino a house edge of 4.79%. These are not great terms for long-term play, so we think this slot is best played sporadically. Keeping your stakes low will reduce long-term losses and allow you to pursue some relatively big payouts.

It’s an attractive slot to look at and the dramatic music certainly holds your attention when spinning the reels. This is even more predominant in the free spins game when electric guitar chords are overlaid with the orchestral score to great effect. There’s also a fantastic visualisation on the starry background that makes you feel as if you’re hurtling through space at speed. This all adds to the excitement of the feature which while hard to trigger, can produce some favourable results.
