Graphics and Theme
Set against a supernatural and eerie static forest image with a distinct blue flashlight glow, The X Files slot is visually similar to the famous TV show. There’s no animation included, which is something you might be used to if you’re regularly playing on brand new slot game releases. However the gameplay all comes together perfectly, and symbols include lower-paying A, K, Q and J alongside higher-paying TV series themed symbols ranging from flashlights, alien hands, silhouette figures and realistic cartoon versions of Mulder (played by David Duchovny) and Scully (played by Gillian Anderson) – plus wild and scatter symbols too.
The X Files is said to be one of the greatest supernatural television series out there and bringing it to a slot game was a great idea by the guys at Playtech. The dramatic background music to the slot adds to the suspense and ghostly vibe, transporting you into the TV series yourself as if you’re at the scene of the crime. It makes gamblers feel both nervous and excited as they spin to win.
Multiplier Wild Symbol
The wild symbol in the game is the multiplier wild and can substitute for any other symbol, except the scatter, to make the best possible winning combination. Every wild symbol comes with a multiplier value of 1x, 2x, 3x or 5x and a secret set of multiplier wild symbols spin beneath the main reels. Rifts on the main reels land to reveal multiplier wilds, so fingers crossed for 5 of a kind 5x multipliers to be awarded for the top 25x multiplier feature!
The scatter symbol in the game is the UFO spaceship and landing three of these anywhere on the reels trigger the Locking Rift Free Games feature.
Locking Rift Free Games feature
If you land three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, you’ll trigger this bonus feature. The following amounts equate to the following free games:
- Three scatter symbols award seven free games
- Four scatter symbols award ten free games
- Five scatter symbols award 20 free games
During the free games feature, reels are spun automatically. Rifts lock in place on the reels after landing during free spins and remain locked for the duration of the bonus round. The free games are played with the same bet that was placed on the spin that triggered them.
Game How to Play
Playable on a 5×3 reel grid with 20 pay lines, The X Files slot offers you plenty of ways to win every time you hit the spin button. First things first, set your wager anywhere from 20p to £500 per line –remember, with high risk comes possible high reward! If you’re a gamer, who likes to sit back, relax and watch the game unfold, then set the autoplay feature for up to 100 spins by simply by clicking the autoplay button to the left of the spin button. When it comes to winning, you want to try and land three or more matching symbols on the same pay line when you spin the reels. The top prize is 200x your stake for 5 of a kind Scully or Mulder, as well as for the wild multiplier symbols, so these are the symbols you want to keep a lookout for!
