PlayTech brings us an online slot based upon the iconic arcade video game Space Invaders. They have taken the classic arcade machine, which was ever so popular in the 1970s and played by millions all over the planet and created this superb slot game. PlayTech has gone for the retro aesthetic with pixelated graphics, the iconic aliens and some interesting gameplay elements as well.
Slot Basic Information
PlayTech has done justice to the legacy of Space Invaders as you will get the feel of the classic arcade game straight away. The symbols are the recognizable aliens, spaceships, flying saucers, monsters and planets. All the symbols can appear as stacked with the highest value symbol is the planet, which can reward you with 150x your line stake.
Unfortunately, this slot does not allow players to earn any free spins, but there are bonus features in this slot.
Invaders Turn Wild
The first of these features is the Invaders Turn Wild. As you play the slot, you will notice that there is the arcade game’s cannon underneath the reels. It will move with each spin, and if the cannon stops underneath reels two or four, it will change any of the low-value symbols on the reels into wilds if doing so brings you a reward. Wilds double the value of what you have won. They also can replace everything else in the reels as well.
UFO Wild Feature
There is one other main feature which is the UFO Wild feature. As the game is going on the iconic red UFO will appear on occasion. It will go across the top of the reels. It won’t necessarily stop every time, but the hope is that it will stop on the same reel as the cannon. When they do lineup the reels stop spinning, the cannon will fire at the UFO automatically. When this happens, you will get a respin of the reel. Within this respin several wild symbols will be added. This could help you get a bigger win. You can get up to nine wilds in this way but the more that you do get, the more likely you are to win as the combos add up.
The game is very straight forward to play; all you need to do is click on the spin and watch the money roll in hopefully. The spin button is positioned below the reels in the centre of the screen. The other controls are on the left and right of this central button. These buttons control how much money you want to put on each spin. There are indicators in other parts of the screen, displaying your total winnings and your current balance.
Space Invaders slot on Mobile
The Space Invaders slot has been adapted for both smartphones and tablets. The design is pretty similar to that of the desktop version with just the positions of buttons, and some elements moved around to fit the device screen size.
