Space Invaders Slot Review

For many people of a certain age, their first encounter with computer games was playing Space Invaders in the arcade. Nowadays the idea of hanging around a big machine watching your friends spend their dinner money on shooting aliens may seem like an odd idea. Thanks to Playtech, Space Invaders has been given a new lease of life in the form of a brand new slot – it’s retro in style and it even looks like the computer games of old.

Space Invaders slots is a 5 reel 10 payline game which draws inspiration from the old classic. The slot is “encased” in an arcade cabinet and the graphics nod towards a gentler era of computer fun. At you can choose to play from as little as 1p per line right up to £20 (max bet £200).

On each spin the cannon – at the bottom of the screen – randomly moves. If it finishes on reels two or four and aliens are on the final reel then these are blasted to become ‘wilds’. This is the Invaders Turn Wild bonus. A second bonus, which is the UFO Wild respin, activates at random and it can create up to nine overlay wild symbols on the reels before a re-spin is triggered.

Visually we love Space Invaders and it definitely takes us back to the old days of the arcade game. However slots wise we felt it lacked in the feature department. Perhaps it’s not easy coding in an actual space invaders shooting game into the a slot, but that would have made for an awesome bonus feature. As is the wilds are nice but there’s nothing else to look forward to!
