Alien Robots Slot from NetEnt
Slots which features either aliens or robots are not uncommon – though this title from Net Entertainment had combined the two.
These alien robots come in the shape of colorful humanoid and canine forms, giving these characters something of a friendly air.
You’ll find both win lines and the ‘all ways’ system in place – while you’ll find a free spins bonus round with expanding wilds, which can certainly boost that bankroll.
How to Win on Alien Robots
When you first play Alien Robots you’ll find both the win lines and the ‘all ways’ system as the default setting, meaning you’ll win both ways. The pay table actually shows 2 different sets of payouts for each symbol, the ‘win line’ payout much higher than the easier to achieve ‘all ways’ payout.
The highest paying symbol is red humanoid robot, which pays 10,000 coins for hitting 5 in a row on a win line and 1,500 coins for 5 in a row under the ‘all ways’ system. The orange humanoid has top payouts of 5,000 coins and 1,000 coins respectively, while the remaining 3 alien robots (yellow wheeled humanoid, green canine robot and a classic blue robot) pay between 3,000 and 500 coins on the win lines and between 750 and 200 coins using the ‘all ways’ system. The standard symbols are completed by the playing card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A, which are the lowest paying on the reels.
Wild symbols are represented by a slightly worried looking green humanoid robot, with the word wild emblazoned across the bottom of the symbol with flames coming from the word. This wild will substitute for any other symbol, giving you the opportunity of many additional wins.
Expanding Wilds and Respins in the Alien Robots Feature Round
The scatter symbol is a blue alien spaceship with green smoke emanating from the bottom, which looks like it is either landing on earth, or making a quick getaway! If you hit this scatter three times or more across any of the reels, you’ll activate the free spins feature. The minimum 3 scatters earn you 10 free spins, while 4 or 5 scatters earns you 20 and a massive 50 free spins respectively.
During each of these free spins the wilds take center stage, as they will immediately expand to fill an entire reel. Not only that, but that reel will now be held in place and you’ll get a free re-spin where all of the other reels will now spin. This can be particularly profitable, especially when you manage to land more than one expanding wild across the reels.
Colorful Design and Setup
This NetEnt designed slot is high on color and fun. The backdrop to the reels is a space scene with stars sparkling. Each of the aliens has a quirky design which is only added to by the ‘robotic’ animation when any of them form part of a win line. The pixelated playing card symbols and the win line indicators add further color to the game, giving the slot a really fresh look. Alongside the game you’ll hear the gentle beeping sounds of alien robots as well as the smooth whirring of the reels.
The game has a total of 30 win lines and each of these will come at the cost of 1 credit, although you can opt to play any number between 1 and 30. However, if you want to play the ‘all ways’ system as well, this will come at additional cost of 30 credits. These 60 credits, are set as the default amount and you’ll choose the coin value for each of these credits.
Alien Robots is a simple yet entertaining video slot with some unique aspects. Having the option of playing both win lines and making use of the ‘all ways’ system makes for a very different game, where you’ll earn those smaller ‘all ways’ wins on a very regular basis, while those bigger ‘win line’ wins will come as a nice boost your bankroll. The free spins feature is a good one too, promising some very large payouts at times thanks to the expanding wilds. Multiple wild reels can combine well with the 2 payout systems at times.
