Right now, zombies are just about as popular as they’ve ever been. Between the slew of zombie movies, books, and even television shows that are currently available, it’s clear that the walking dead are just as scary to audiences today as they were 50 years ago. Strangely enough though, there haven’t been very many slot machines that have focused on zombies – until now.
Zombies is a brand new slot machine by Net Entertainment that’s all about surviving zombie attacks (while also making a tidy profit). In the game, players will have to navigate an appropriately creepy landscape while killing zombies and matching symbols. It’s a 20-line, five-reel slot machine that allows players to spend up to ten coins on each line. Seven different coin values are offered, allowing players to customize the cost of each spin.
About The Game
In Zombies, players have the chance to match a wide variety of gory symbols. In order to win prizes, at least three of the same symbol must be matched on an active payline, running from left to right. For smaller wins, there are the old standbys: tens, jacks, queens, kings and aces, each drawn in the style of a zombie-induced blood splatter. For bigger winnings, you’ll have to match things you might find during a zombie apocalypse, like weapons, gas masks, eyeballs and brains. The biggest win is for a rotating saw that is certain to be an effective anti-zombie weapon. Five saws will earn you the game’s biggest prize: 1,000 credits for every coin wagered – something all of us slots geeks will be hoping to hit im sure!
While a theme as fun as zombies could probably carry a slot machine on its own, Zombies also contains a number of special features designed to spice up gameplay. Of course, there is a standard wild symbol (simply the word “wild”) that can substitute for any of the other symbols in order to make a winning payline.
However, there’s also a giant stacked wild – a rampaging zombie – that makes appearances on the third reel. This zombie is three symbols long, and part or all of him can cover the center reel. However, if you only get a partial zombie on the reels, you’ll receive a little help: after scoring your initial wins, a nudge feature will help you score extra wins by moving the zombie up or down one position.
If you want even more wilds, keep a look out for the random wild feature. On any spin that doesn’t result in one of the game’s other features, up to six symbols can randomly turn wild – a development can turn any spin into a huge win.
The game also has a scatter symbol (biohazard canisters). If three scatters appear on any spin, you’ll be rewarded with five free spins. Each spin comes with a different multiplier, starting at the standard 1x and moving up to 10x by the final spin. In addition, between spins, you’ll get to kill a number of zombies, earning instant bonus credits.
Zombies is sure to be a hit among players who have a love for horror movies, thanks to the creepy atmosphere it creates and the great zombie-themed features hidden throughout the game.
