Reptoids is a 5 reels and 20 paylines slot powered by the brilliant Yggdrasil Gaming. Whenever you hear of a new slot release by this company you can be certain of 2 things, spectacular graphics and a unique theme. Reptoids is no exception and comes with a 1960’s alien theme.
It’s a slot about aliens that are taking over the world by disguising themselves as humans. Don’t worry; you can outsmart these creatures with the Repto Detector feature while cashing in. We’ll reveal a little more about this later on in the review.
Put on your detective hat and expose aliens from anywhere at any time via your mobile, tablet or desktop device. The slot can be played from as little as 0.10 coins per spin to a maximum of 100 coins per spin.
The slot has a certain Men in Black type of feel to it and the 1960’s vibe might not be for everyone. If you prefer something a little more upbeat, simplistic and modern why not try the Christmas Edition of NetEnt’s beloved Flowers slot. With its festive theme, animated quirky flowers and low variance it’s a slot waiting to reward you.
Look & Feel
The Reptoids slot has a 1960’s feel to it so you can expect a vintage look with modern yet old school designed tools. The slot starts with a short intro video of a captain/ alien walking into the department and killing his fellow officers. It’s an intriguing intro that awakens the detective within. The backdrop of the slot is what seems to be a street view from the dash of a modern technology police car. The reels are a big green world map screen that seems to be the window of this futuristic sci-fi contraption. On the reels you will find a variety of people including sergeants, reporters, presidents and nurses who might or might not be aliens in disguised. These are your high value symbols and the lower value symbols are silver, gold, bronze and nickel military medals. The graphics and entire design of this slot is superb and works beautifully in making the theme come to life.
Sound & Score
The slot has a mysterious yet eerie soundtrack that gives off the feeling of all is not what it seems. It’s a subtle soundtrack that could be listened to all day, if it doesn’t work for you then you have the option of muting it. However, as with all Yggdrasil Gaming slots the soundtrack is imperative to the overall feel of the theme.
Bonus features and Gameplay
The wild symbol of the slot is any of the aliens found on the reels. The wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols on the reels except the scatter. Instead of having just one wild you have plenty of wilds to look forward to that will increase your winnings.
The scatter of this slot is a gold coin and it awards coin wins. The amount you win is determined by the amount of scatters found on the reels. Landing 2 scatters gets you 200 coins, 3 gets you 2,000 coins, 4 gets you 20,000 coins and if you’re lucky enough to get 5 scatter symbols you will walk away with 100,000 coins.
During the base game you will notice a repto detector frame that moves around and lands on random symbols. If it lands on a character that is an alien in disguise it will turn that character into a wild.
The scatter symbol is not just good for coin wins; it also activates the free spin feature. To trigger the feature you need to land a scatter in the repto detector frame. Once you’ve done so you will be awarded 7 free spins during which all uncovered reptoids remain wild on the reels.
You will also be awarded with 2 extra free spins each time you detect 2 more reptoids on the reels. Ultimately you can end up with 6 extra free spins if you manage to uncover all the reptoids during your free spins bonus round.
Is it worth playing?
Yes! This highly entertaining old-school slot will leave you feeling like a masterful detective each time you uncover an alien in disguise. It’s the perfect slot for anyone looking for a short break from reality. Reptoids have a variety of highly awarding bonus features but even if it didn’t, the gameplay would be enough to stay for. Of course there is also the perk of landing big wins of up to 5,000 times your stake!
