Astro Anna Slots Judge interview

Hello, and thank you for taking the time for this interview! Today we will talk about the newest Lady Luck Games slot – Astro Anna, which looks a bit different than a typical slot machine. Tell us more about the game creation and why you have decided to use pipe mechanics in Astro Anna.

Cosmic-themed slots are very popular among players in many markets. We`ve realized that we are missing this theme in our expanding portfolio. Therefore we`ve decided to explore this path.

Astro Anna is a fearless cosmonaut on a mission to explore Mars. This journey is very difficult and has a lot of bumps on the way. She must fix the spinning pipes and provide fuel to her spaceship. During her expedition, Anna faces a lot of challenges. It`s difficult always to provide the fuel flow and fight hostile aliens simultaneously. Our fearless fighter never gives up and works her best to keep her extra-terrestrial vessel up and to run.

Lady Luck Games introduced innovative pipe mechanics for the very first time last year in the Mr. Alchemister game. The slot gained big popularity among players and casino operators. We`ve decided that those mechanics will be perfect for the cosmic-themed slot. Our design and development team added a couple of twists to make our newest release even more entertaining.

Can you please tell me a bit more about the main gameplay and features?

Astro Anna is a 5reel, 5rows slot with 11 symbols that represent sections of a pipe that can connect to two, three, or four sides of the square it lands on, connecting to a pipe in the surrounding squares. Once the pipes spin into a complete connection to the sides of the grid, a prize is awarded. Additional features are random multipliers land on pipes increasing your win if they land on the connected pipe.

Astro Anna also offers a Free Spins bonus round that is triggered by connecting 4, 5, or 6 prizes on one round; players can receive 10, 15, or 20 Free Spins, respectively. When the gamers are lucky enough to trigger 7, 8, 9, or 10 prizes during one spin, they will also be awarded a multiplier up to 20x, which will be added on top of the initial multiplier, displayed on the counter while entering the Free Spins Round. The multiplier is sticky and can increase during the bonus game up to 50x.

The game also has a Buy Bonus feature, where players can bypass their way to the Free Spins round at any time. They will have the option to choose between Rocket Fuel 10 Free Spins, Space Plumbing 20 Free Spins, or the Astro Extreme Random Option.

What audience did you have in mind when creating this game, and who is its ideal player?

Astro Anna is a game that can entertain open-minded players that are seeking highly entertaining slots with unconventional mechanics and gameplay. Even though the pipe mechanics are very innovative, this slot is very straightforward and can be easily enjoyed by experienced players as well as newcomers. We are certain that anyone who likes fast game flow, space-themed adventure, and fantastic graphics and animations will appreciate the effort we have made to create our fearless cosmonaut Astro Anna.

What is next for Lady Luck Games? Do you have plans for 2023 already?

We are a team of very busy, creative individuals with millions of ideas. Therefore, we can`t wait to start 2023 with some fantastic titles! First, the great news is that our three-year co-development agreement with King Features allows us to create branded slot games. In August, we released Beetle Bailey, and in a couple of months, we will deliver yet another fantastic title, Popeye. We`ve also partnered with Big Time Gaming so that players can expect Megaways in our upcoming titles. Apart from that, we always crave to develop new features and mechanics. Therefore, we hope for some innovative and exciting titles to come up out of our brainstorming.
