Zombies is a relatively old slot by software developer Net Entertainment. The slot was released in 2012 already but remains to be highly popular, in spite of the meager maximum potential win of 100,000 coins. And that is because of the stacked wilds, the random wilds, free spins, and a maximum multiplier of 10x. Also, the popularity might stem from the dark theme of this slot, which has been executed to perfection, making this slot a real experience.
How to play Zombies?
At first glance, Zombies might look like a simple slot. And that isn’t very surprising, seeing as the slot was produced in 2012. It has a standard layout of five reels and three rows, but all the animations are sharp and entertaining. The slot also makes use of standard symbols, ranging from the ten to the Ace, which have been altered to fit well with the rest of the game. Besides the standard symbols, you will also encounter scary eyes, brains, circular saws, syringes, gas masks, and axes; all the equipment you need to take on some zombies.
When you’re playing this game, it might suddenly happen that two zombie heads show up. These heads will be shot at and each hit yields a random wild, which will be added to your playing grid, alongside the wilds that were already on your reels. If you’re lucky, you will have a wild covering a complete reel at that moment. Because of all the wilds, wins can add up quickly. Also, this random feature makes sure the game stays exciting as it can show up at any time.
Free spins on Zombies
Free spins get unlocked when the scatter lands on reels two, three, and four. Also, the scatter cannot land on any other reels. If in total three scatters land on your reels, you receive five free spins. During free spins, there will be a bar on the screen which keeps track of how many times you’ve hit the zombies already. This could lead to some extra money, especially when everything goes just right.
The multiplier can get as big as 10x, and only with the maximum multiplier, you can win the maximum potential win of 100,000 coins. Don’t get startled when a big win forms. That is, when such a win forms, a zombie will pop up, which will subsequently get told to get lost in a somewhat weird way. You, however, don’t have to worry about the sound effects as they are kept modest and won’t startle you.
Pay lines and jackpot on Zombies
Zombies isn’t equipped with a jackpot and the maximum potential win of 100,000 coins also can’t be considered a replacement, as it is much smaller than the maximum potential win on most other Netent slots. Zombies is fitted with a total of 20 fixed pay lines, so you cannot alter the number of one. Therefore, if you want to lower your bet, you have to alter your coin value and/or bet level. In the bottom left corner of the slot, you can turn off the sound and activate the autospin. And this autospin can come in pretty handy for if you’re too scared to keep watching, if for if things get a little too exciting when spinning those five free spins with many possibilities to win.
