Free Space Tale Slot Machine - Instant Play Game
Please Choose an Option:
When your slot starts off with a narration, you know things are about to get serious! We’ll admit, it got our hopes up for a moment. But our briefly raised expectations were quickly dashed. Because the entirety of this story boils down to stopping the bad guy from using his super powerful weapon. And really, do you even need any more story for a game like this? Just leap into the fray, start spinning the reels, and don’t stop until you snag that awesome progressive jackpot!
It starts off ambitiously. But even at first glance, IGT’s release suffers from its age. But while it’s somewhat bearable during the event scene, the actual reels are a lot more disappointing. The symbols appear a touch too blurry for our liking, and the background image is a little too simplistic for our liking. It’s a shame, because what is there does look quite cool. Some of the alien designs are downright freaky, after all. We were also pleasantly surprised to find that Space Tale has its own animations. They’re not the best thing we’ve ever seen, but they’re better than nothing.
Gameplay will immediately feel familiar to any long term fans of this software provider. It uses all the same core elements as previous IGT slots. A 5x3 board with 9 flexible paylines which pay left to right only. A special feature triggered by collecting enough bonus points. A progressive jackpot only available after setting your bet a certain way. A free spins round with nothing extra added on top of it. Games borrowing ideas off of each other isn’t that big of a deal, usually. But when it’s getting impossible to tell the releases apart beyond the theme they use, then you know you have a problem.
The layout is quite functional, if a bit old school. Then again, given the age of Space Tale, we can’t really fault this slot! Still, playing an older game like this does come with some annoying complications: like setting your total bet! Rather than getting a simplified version, you have to tweak three different settings to adjust your wager. By changing the number of active paylines, credits per payline and the coin denomination, players can also set their total stake. You can bet between GBP 0.01 and GBP 90 on each spin, which is a great betting spread.
Scoring the progressive jackpot has only two requirements. First, you have to bet the maximum coin per payline to be eligible. And second, you need the perfect dash of insane luck to land that win! The other special features can also offer good prizes, but none really come close to the progressive jackpot. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any information regarding this release’s variance and RTP. And without that information, it’s that much more difficult to recommend Space Tale to anyone.

Honestly, we don’t know if this was an ambitious undertaking cut short by time, or just IGT’s developers having a bit of fun. We’d lean towards the latter, as the entire slot feels like one amusing joke. The great theme is somewhat lost in translation with the dated visuals and bog-standard gameplay. And we can’t forget about not knowing the RTP for the game! At the end of the day, Space Tale failed to impress. Here’s hoping their next venture to the stars goes a little better!
