Astro Legends Lyra And Erion Slots

We have to give credit to Foxium, they went all out on the backstory of the slot machine created for Microgaming online casinos. A synthfunk star who is also a shapeshifting musical guardian finds herself stranded on the planet of Libretto, an abandoned trading hub which houses an A.I called Erion, who was a gatekeeper of galactic trade. Left alone with nothing to do, the A.I. listened in on human radio waves and became a huge synthfunk fan – so much so that he is currently keeping Lyra prisoner so she will play her music for him. Now, you must help our heroine escape Erion, and return to her groovy adventure! The game is played on a 1-2-3-3-4-3-3-2-1 board with cluster pays. The title’s bonuses include multiplier Wilds, Sonic Re-Spins and Lyra’s Spirit special feature.

How to Play

Even if you do not care about the convoluted theme, the slot provides some cool sci-fi graphics. You can see a distant world with twinkling lights, while the surface of the planet you are stranded on is littered with mining shafts, showing its previous function. But the greatest visuals are saved for the special features, where Lyra uses her music to break down rocks, or transforms into a wolf and flees a pissed off, crystalline robot trying to keep her imprisoned. Astro Legends: Lyra and Erion is played on a wholly unique 1-2-3-3-4-3-3-2-1 playing field, where pays are granted when five or more identical symbols appear adjacent to each other horizontally or vertically.

Betting Options and Payout

Gamblers can wager between $0.10 up to $10 per spin, which is a good bet spread for casual players. The game has medium to high volatility, with an RTP of 96.5%, which is above average compared to other Foxium releases. The maximum win is worth a mouth-watering 15,000x your total bet. Suddenly, the $10 maximum bet makes sense!

Symbols and Extra Features

Icons include the letters Q, K and A, as well as peridot, amethyst and garnet gems. A red orb acts as Wild and can grant a multiplier between 2x to 5x, while the Stardust bubble is Scatter. When gamblers successfully land a winning cluster, there is a chance the Sonic re-spin will play. The winning symbols are frozen in place, while Lyra’s music reveals other icons on the reels. If the cluster pay is expanded with new icons, then another re-spin is granted. Otherwise, the bonus ends there. Stardust Bubbles appear randomly on top of other symbols. Lyra will pop them to reveal between two to ten points, which go into the stardust collection. Once the meter is filled to 100, Lyra’s Spirit special feature is played. Our synthfunk star transforms into a wolf and begins to flee from the A.I. The wolf has three lives and can run down one of three paths players pick for her. Erion will target one path for the first three levels, and then strike two paths from the fourth to the seventh level. Each time the wolf is hit by Erion, it loses a single life. If gamblers succeed in escaping Erion, they get an additional 20x prize, on top of all the gems they collected while fleeing.

Our Verdict

The jackpot alone is mouth-watering enough to keep us coming back to the title, but Foxium treated us with some amazing graphics and fun gameplay on top of that. We can only hope the developers continue down this path – as far as we are concerned, this is a well-earned perfect score.
