One of the leading gaming companies in the world Playtech has announced that a new title will soon be added to their portfolio. It is the video slot inspired by the classic arcade game Space Invaders. As homage to one of the most popular arcade games of all time, the slot will be designed to look identically to the original game and it will be available in online and mobile casinos.
Featuring 5 reels and 10 paylines which pay both ways, the slot is a home to symbols depicted just as the icons in the arcade game including pixelated monsters and aliens as well as spaceships and flying saucers which look a bit more modern.
Famous for their branded titles, Playtech once again proves to be the leader in the production of the slot machines which are highly entertaining and provide players with nostalgic feelings.
What We Love
We love how the popular arcade game originally created in Japan served as an inspiration for the slot machine running on the latest technologies.
The combination of the retro look and innovative bonus features which are incorporated in the base game will provide players with a thrilling and at the same time rewarding gaming experience for sure. The highlight features are Invaders Go Wild and UFO Wild due to which additional Wilds are added to your reels. As they act as jokers, while your low value symbols disappear from the reels, you can create high value combinations resulting in huge wins.
What’s more, all your payouts during the Invaders Go Wild are doubled when your combinations are completed with Wild as it acts at the same time as a 2x multiplier. Another great aspect of the game is its structure which allows you to create winning combinations left to right and right to left.
What We Do Not Like
If you are not familiar with the game originally developed in 1978, you might find the slot looking awkward. The biggest problem we have with the slot is that is does not offer the free spins feature. Instead, you are provided with respins which can be triggered once in a while.
Although high value symbols come in stacks, from what we have seen in the official promotional video, it seems that they do not appear on the reels in sufficient amount to create winning combinations during the base game. In this case, you need to rely on bonus features with additional Wilds and low value symbols excluded from the screen.
If you loved to play the cult arcade game Space Invaders, you will sure be impressed by the upcoming slot and all its features.
To save the Earth from the hostile alien invaders you need to keep winning and if you use your canon properly you can turn them into Wilds and win some huge payouts.
So far, Playtech keeps the information on the payouts as well as the release date secret, but it is known that the game will be affordable at only $0.20 per spin. With pay both ways structure and additional Wilds the game promises loads of fun and nice awards.
