Apollo Rising is a bit different when it comes to the number of the reels and rows. There are still 5 rows and 100 pay lines, and this is something that I have seen before, but I am not used to play games with 8 rows. But, this is probably a game that is attractive to me because it is different from what I am used to play.
When it comes to the special features I might say that there are none. Everything is happening during the base game. There are no free spins and special bonus rounds. The only feature here is the Rising Respin feature. The thing with this feature is that it happens on a regular basis so I feel like it is a part of the base game. Namely, every time there is a wild on the second, third and fourth reel then the wild turns into a rocket and covers the whole reel. It also rewards a respin for 1 wild; you get 2 respins for 2 wilds and 3 respins for 3 wilds. The idea here was to get all 3 wilds and to get the central reels covered with wilds.
Most of the times during my game session I was getting the 4th reel wild and no wins from the respin. I have to say that this game is definitely worth trying. To be honest with you, do not expect a lot. It is not that the game does not have a potential but because in reality it does not pay a lot.
