The Back to Venus slots game is produced by BetSoft. BetSoft are one of the smaller slot development companies on the market at the moment and have recently started offering their own casino platform. The company was founded in 2006, entering the slots market 4 years later. Betsoft do publish the Return to Player (RTP)/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help files. As such we know that the house edge for is 2.93%.
Back to Venus has 5 reels and each reel is 3 symbols high. The game uses 20 standard paylines, playing from left to right.
Wild – The “Asteroid” symbol is Wild and will substitute for all symbols other than Bonus symbols. Wilds will only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 but when they land they will stick in place for an additional spin.
Bonus – The Bonus symbol is the “Rocket Ship”. You need 3 or more of them on a single spin to trigger the Free Spins feature. The “Rocket Ship” symbols will only appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Prickly Sticky and Respin – This is a random feature that can only appear when you fail to land a winning combination. It is important to note that it will not appear on every failed spin, just ones chosen at random. When this happens a random symbol will be chosen to stick in place whilst the rest of the reels spin again. If it does trigger you are guaranteed a win, as the reels will continue to spin until a win occurs.
Flowering Wild Boost - This is a random feature that can only appear when you fail to land a winning combination. It is important to note that it will not appear on every failed spin, just ones chosen at random. When this happens there is an increased chance that additional Wild symbols will land on the reels.
Free Spins – If you land 3 Bonus symbols you will be given 10 Free Spins and any Wild symbols that land will remain in place for the remainder of the feature. There is also an increased chance that Wilds will land. If you land 4 Bonus symbols you will still only get 10 Free Spins, your Wilds will be sticky but there is also a chance that your Wild symbols will come with a multiplier.
Double Up – After any win you can risk what you have earned by pressing the Double Up button. You bet half or all of your winnings and will win or lose based on the toss of a coin. You can attempt to double up as often as you like, until you lose.
Back to Venus is a reprise of another very successful BetSoft game that impressed back when it was first released. It is rare that a sequel to a slot ever impresses me all that much as it tends to just be a rehash of what came before. However, a few decent features and a good house edge and all that can be forgotten. Well, guess what? This slot comes with a few good features and an excellent house edge. You get 2 random features. You get Wilds that stick around for 1 extra spin and you get Free Spins that come with some exciting modifiers. Add to this a slot that looks brilliant and BetSoft are onto a real winner here.
