Space Evader Gold is a scratch card hosted by Ladbrokes Casino and created by Microgaming. The name is a play on the title of the classic arcade game, Space Invaders. The theme of the game is a little green man trying to make it back to his spaceship while avoiding the perils of a dangerous planet. Space Evader Gold is a refresh of the very popular Space Evader scratchie. The high end is a little lower on the new card, but the Gold version has a more lucrative payout rate and the payouts scales better.
Space Evader Gold uses the board game format. The board has 46 positions. The types of positions are continue, jump, prize, death and jackpot. The player gets eight rolls of a die to get from the starting position to the spaceship. There is a chance that the player will not get to use all eight rolls, since if the avatar lands on a death position along the way, then the game ends immediately.
When the avatar lands on or passes a prize marker, the player wins at least that amount. In other words, when the game ends, however it ends, the player wins the amount of the last prize marker landed on or passed. Space Evader Gold allows bets ranging from £0.50 to £10, and the jackpot is as high as £200K. Space Evader Gold tends to pay out better than most games like it. The difference is the jump positions, which when landed on allow the avatar to skip ahead a number of positions.
Space Evader Gold is a fun scratch card that takes its simple and zany setup and runs with it. The game plays very fast in its default state, and it boasts a turbo mode that hard-core player will love. Space Evader Gold is an instant play game, and Ladbrokes Casino makes it available in a free arcade mode, so there’s no reason not to try the game and see what all the fuss is about. If you decide to play for real, then Ladbrokes is a great option since it’ll match your first deposit by 100 per cent up to £500.
