Yggdrasil Gaming Goes Sci-Fi In New Reptoids Slot
Reptoids slot by Yggdrasil Gaming is taking over major online casinos. With the new slot available to fiat and Bitcoin casinos, slot bettors should be on the lookout for this alien invasion that comes with wins and real entertainment.
The new Yggdrasil slot features an interesting Alien Detector that goes around the reels. The Detector can trigger either a Transforming Wilds or Scatter mode feature. Players will enjoy not just this feature but also marvel at the animations, themes, and more that make this game a must-have even in online casinos with Bitcoin.
Reptoids slot wins with Alien Detector feature
The main feature of Reptoids is the Alien Detector square that highlights a random symbol in each spin. There are two features that the scanner triggers.
One of the features is the Repto Detector. When the Scanner lands on a Character symbol, the Character turns into an alien. All of the same Character symbols around the reel turn into the alien version of the symbol. All Alien Character symbols are Wild symbols that substitute all other symbols except for the Scatter ones.
The second feature is the Free Spin Mode. Players trigger this when the Scanner lands on a Scatter symbol. This gives players seven free spins.
What makes the Free Spin Mode standout is how players can extend the mode. Players can get two free spins if they can find two Alien symbols with the Repto Detector symbol. Players can get up to six spins for a total of 13 free spins during the Scatter mode of the game.
On another note, Scatter symbols are the most valuable symbol in the game. Having at least three of these can give 2,000 coins. This is twice the amount that a player can get from matching five of the highest-paying symbols that only give 1,000 coins. About four Scatter symbols give 20,000 coins while five has a payout of 100,000 coins. Five Scatters essentially give players 5,000 times their bet amount.
Popular sci-fci Alien invasion theme
Yggdrasil, which will hold its 2017 Christmas Calendar from Dec. 1 to Jan. 3 next year, borrows its theme from B-movie sci-fi films of aliens taking over the world and pretending to be people with high political and military influence. Despite its cartoon graphic and artwork, Reptoids has a dark tone of a suspense or horror movie.
Jonas Strandman, head of slots at Yggdrasil Gaming said:
“We are very happy with how we’ve combined the Reptoids concept and mechanics into a perfect fit, which makes gameplay both intuitive and easy to follow for newcomers. Seasoned slot players will also appreciate the strong chance of big wins in the base game…’We must also mention the game’s thrilling trailer, which showcases the high-quality we aim for in our everlasting quest to offer a first-class experience in all our slots.”
The alien invasion genre is a popular one during the 50s. It plays on everyone’s real-life fear of getting invaded by extraterrestrial beings. This was a time when the Cold War was at its peak. The genre is still the main staple in many sci-fi media throughout the decades.
What makes Reptoids slot unnerving is its world. The aliens are not invading the earth with giant monument-destroying-UFOs or robots. They have already invaded and are among the highest branch of government where they can do the most damage to all of mankind.
