The logo 'What On Earth' is the Wild symbol in the game, paying a nice 7500x the line bet for getting 5 of them, but this very dumb Wild symbol only substitutes for the 2 top symbols, the Blue Alien and the Dashboard. Why this is so I cannot figure out. Why it doesn't substitute for other symbols as well I cannot reason out. All I know is that this isn't a good move. There are 3 types of Scatters in the game, the Red Spaceship, the Green Spaceship and the Blue Spaceship. Why need 3 types of Spaceships? Only Microgaming knows. All I know is what on earth was going on in their minds? The Red Spaceship pays 100x the total bet for getting 5 of them, but the other 2 Spaceships can only be 3 of them, paying 3x the total bet. Why is this so? Hmm, my mind boggles! As for the other symbols, the Blue Alien pays 1000x, the Dashboard pays 500x, and the rest pay from 250x to 50x, all per line bet for getting 5 of each kind. An average paytable, because the Wild symbol disappoints, and all the other symbols have low values.
Getting 3 of the Green or Blue Spaceships, or getting 3 or more of the Red Spaceships, trigger the Beam 'Em Up Bonus game, but the Scatter symbols must be on adjacent reels. In this Bonus game, pick 1 of the 5 aliens in their spaceships to beam up earthlings to win a cash prize. Nothing big in most of them except for one nice 200x total bet prize. The rest are from 3x up to 50x the total bet amount. There is also a 'Contest' symbol, which takes the game into the next level, where your chosen alien competes with the other 4 aliens in beaming up the most earthlings. A prize is awarded for each placing. This second level game is not necessarily better than the first level, but the prize is slightly higher than in the first level.
