Max Damage Pokie Machine

Max Damage is a heroic spaceman who first appeared on an arcade game some years ago and now finds himself battling aliens across a 5-reel pokie that has Microgamings’ popular 243 Way to Win payout structure.

Every bit as cartoonish and colourful as the original version, this game comes complete with stacked wilds for extra winning spins, while the free spins bonus round is given an extra twist with win multipliers, additional wilds and by having an alien invasion take place at random points within them.

Max Damage looks great even before the reels start to spin, with a background image of a planet and the stars behind the symbols that seem to float above it. The game title is above the reels, while as there are no paylines, we just see the 243 Ways to Win logo set against some type of spacecraft that frames each side of the game.

With 243 Ways to Win, players get a prize by landing 3 or more identical symbols anywhere on adjacent reels running from the one on the left and although this means that all combinations will count, it also means that players can’t just try out the game for a tiny wager.

The minimum stake however, is just 0.15 and this can be adjusted up through several different amounts to reach the maximum of 15.00 per spin. That’s not much for an online pokie and could put off many potential players, but this is one of the few downsides of an otherwise excellent game.

Lower value symbols are represented by the playing card 10, J, Q, K and A icons, although rather than just using standard versions, Microgaming have re-designed them with little rocket thrusters to fit in with the theme, and added a splash of colour to each one.

Pictures of the Earth, Max’s spaceship, a space station and Max himself make up the higher value symbols.

Extra-terrestrial Extras

The game logo is wild, replacing any others, except for the scatter, to help complete winning combinations, while it will also be stacked several high which can complete a number of lines at once. As well as this, the wild is also the highest value symbol when it lands across the reels.

A green alien, looking very happy inside his flying saucer, works as a scatter symbol, paying out 3x the total bet when just 2 of them land in any positions at once, while 3, 4 or 5 of them pay 6x, 30x and 150x the bet before starting 15 free spins. There are a couple of nice features during these games that will help to bring in some decent rewards, with all wins doubled in value throughout, and an alien attack that pays multiplier prizes.

The free spins play out against a red background in deep space and a variety of alien craft can turn up at random on any reel throughout them. Max will blast them with lasers and the spaceships explode to reveal bonus wins after which the position that they were in will turn into a wild symbol with any new winning combination that results from this being paid out before the next spin commences.

Up to 120,000 coins can be won during the free spins, making it a real highlight of a pokie that’s already reaching for the stars.

The Verdict

A pleasing style and impressive design to the game, along with symbols that are either directly related to the theme or adapted to look like they are, combine to give Max Damage an immediate appeal. That appeal is only enhanced by the bonus features, all of which should bring in plenty of extra wins.

While stacked wilds are a fairly common feature, the free spins game here is exceptional, with those win multipliers, alien spaceships and extra wilds all helping to make this one of the biggest hits in Microgamings’ extensive range.

It’s a pity that the maximum bet is only 15.00. but even players who like to make bigger bets should at least give this pokie a spin or two, as it’s a fun game that has the potential to pay out some big prizes.
