Zombies is a NetEnt title from 2012, it’s an apocalytic slot game that features gory graphics and is quite rewarding as a slot game. The bonus game in Zombies is 5 free spins during which you’ll get to shoot at the incoming zombie infestation! Lots of zombies will come at you, and you’ll get to shoot at them with a shotgun. This game isn’t short of blood and gore.
There are 20 compulsory paylines, and fans of NetEnt slots will be used to this setup. The minimum bet per spin is $0.20, and the maximum is $200.
This is arguably the best zombie-themed game when it comes to graphics, as NetEnt opted to go for a comic book style, and it works great. Not only that it allows depiction of brains, eyes, half-mutilated walking dead and lots of blood, but the artwork is really well done. All the symbols you’d expect from such a game are here – Chainsaw, Eye, Brain, Axe, and of course a lot of zombies.
Wild symbol can appear on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5, and reel 3 is reserved for the Stacked Wild which can appear as a single symbol, a Stacked Wild of two symbols, or ideally a Stacked Wild covering the entire reel 3. When the Stacked Wild appears on your reel partially, it is nudged up or down to cover the whole reel when it complets a winning bet line or when it can complete a winning bet line after the nudge. What this means is that the Stacked Wild will be your friend every time and will complete some big wins, even if you aren’t lucky enough to see the full stacked symbol at first.
That’s not all for Wilds. There’s a Random Wild feature (see screenshot below), where random Wilds appear anywhere on your reels (only in the base game, not during free spins). You can get up to 10 Wilds with this feature, and it can bring some very nice wins when triggered.
When you land three Scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4, you’ll activate the free spins game and will get exactly 5 free spins. After each spin, the zombine infestation in the abandoned shopping mall will get worse and worse, and your character will shoot some zombies with a shotgun to win coins. This means the free spins game is combined with a pick-a-box bonus feature, or, better said, pick-a-zombie.
Also, after each spin the win multiplier is increased and the five free spins will have a multiplier of 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x respectively. This is infact a three-in-one bonus feature as you get free spins, multipliers, and prizes for shooting zombies.
Zombies is a slot game with a very good payout. Theoretical return to player (RTP) of Zombies is 97.20% and that means you can make some money on this slot game, especially if you trigger the bonus feature early in your session. Not only that this is a good paying slot game, it is in fact among the top five or six NetEnt slots when it comes to RTP, so it’s not just for zombie fans – it’s for every serious slot player.
