The original 70s arcade game Space Invaders was created by Tomohiro Nishikado in 1978. This game was a worldwide hit and is very well deemed as one of the precursors of today’s video gaming. Space Invaders online slot is a 5-reel, 10-payline slot designed, developed, and powered by Playtech.
As with the original arcade game Space Invaders, the slot’s theme is all about defending the Earth from “space invaders” or extra-terrestrials. The graphics of this video slot is a bit modern compared to the 70s game. Included symbols are spaceships, 3 pixelated aliens, planets, space monsters and flying saucers. All symbols can randomly appear stacked. The planet gets the highest value with its 150 times your bet.
Graphics and Sounds in Space Invaders Slot
Space Invaders online slot brings back memories of the old arcade game. It has that same retro graphics and sounds that somehow adds to the popularity of the video slot.
Invaders Turn Wild and UFO Wild Feature
The cannon placed below the reels will fire when it stops under the second or fourth reel. The bonus round is the Invaders Turn Wild feature, with the cannon blasting away any low value symbol on the above reel. It then turns itself into Wild. This Wild could double the player’s money if it creates a “win”.
Another bonus round is when the UFO that flies above the reels can trigger the UFO Wild feature if the cannon and the UFO align when the reels come to a stop. The cannon’s alignment with the UFO is a sure win to the player as shooting the UFO entails a reward of a free spin with up to nine added Wilds. The best is to get at least 5 Wilds for huge winnings. Landing 7 Wilds leads to an unbelievable 455 times your bet. Winning 20 times the stake is easy once you get “lucky”.
Space Invaders could very well bet on it’s way to becoming a top video slot for online slot players. Playtech made sure that all types of gamers could easily familiarize themselves to the play style and layout of this online slot.
