Space Race Slot Game Review
Space Race is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 20 fixed paylines from Play ‘n Go.
The game derives its name from the competition between the two main Cold War rivals, the United States and the Soviet Union, to gain the upper hand in space exploration.
The backdrop to the metal-framed reels is a multi-colored view of the galaxy with occasional shooting stars bisecting the Vista.
The visuals in this game closely resemble earth with just small dashes of sci-fi.
The imagery includes some space rockets, planet Earth, the moon and a space race logo.
