Alien Robots™ (EOL)
This game is End of Life but feel free to read about it here
With 243 Ways to Win and the chance to win many Free Spins, Alien Robots™ could be the video slot you’re looking for. This NetEnt video slot is inspired by little likeable alien robots. Some look friendly and some a little bit moody. However, none of them will harm you. Despite their different characters, they all have one goal in mind. Rewarding you with the nicest wins possible. One of the robots is acting as a Wild and one as a Scatter while the other robots are responsible for high payouts.
Not one software developer is offering so much variety in their themed slots as NetEnt does. I do believe it’s not always easy to come up with an attractive theme that is interesting for a major part of the players. I’m sure that not everybody will be interested in Aliens or Robots in daily life, but if it comes to video slots I do recommend Alien Robots™. The design might bot be that spectacular. However, it is packed with extra features and that’s what most players are looking for. So forget about the design and go for 243 Ways to Win, the Wild, Expanding Wild, Scatter and Free Spins.
243 Ways to Win
Rather new for NetEnt video slots is the opportunity to win in 243 different ways. Why settle for only a few bet lines if you can have 243 Ways to Win? Bet lines have been replaced and every combination from left to right is a winning one. Consequently, a win will be awarded every time a combination appears on the reels.
When Alien Robots™ was launched, 243 Ways to Win was the new format of slots that removed the constraints of bet lines. Wins are calculated based on left-to-right combinations all depending on their position on the reel. Despite the fact that Alien Robots™ has left the NetEnt stage, the 243 Ways to Win are still available in several NetEnt slots. Ghost Pirates™, Twin Spins™, and Twin Spin Deluxe™.
At the present time, you don’t have to settle with one way to win or with bet lines. This feature is used more and more by developers. Even though you get the choice to either play with 30 bet lines for half the bet, I do recommend to keep the 243 Way to Win feature activated. .
Not only do you have the choice to play with either 30 bet lines or 243 Ways to Win, there are also different levels and coin values. Choose up to level five to increase the chance to win. The coin values are there for you to raise your total bet for higher winnings. You can choose between six different coins starting from 0.01 up to 0.50. This results in a total bet of 150.00 per spin.
Don’t worry as you won’t be attacked by Wild robots, but there is one robot slash alien that plays the role of Wild. Actually one of the leading roles and that’s a good thing since the Wild in general substitutes for all other symbols in the NetEnt slots although the Scatter symbol is excluded in this case. Not only does the Wild appear during the main game, but also during Free Spins where it will expand. Normally NetEnt casino slots offers either an Expending Wild or a Sticky Wild, as can be found in the Jack Hammer video slot, but in Alien Robots™ NetEnt combined the best of both. When the Wild appears during Free Spins, it will not only expand, but it will also stay there. Additionally, a Re-spin will be awarded.
UFO Scatter symbols
Although we would rather avoid UFOs, I’m sure you can’t get enough of the UFO Scatter in Alien Robots™. They bring luck instead of trouble due to the Free Spins feature that’s activated when three or more of the UFO Scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Obviously, the more the better as five Scatters will award 50 Free Spins.
Generous Free Spins
Let the journey of big winnings begin at the moment three or more Scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. There they will activate 10, 20 or even the extraordinary amount of 50 Free Spins. When luck is on your side you do have the chance additional Free Spins will be activated. This will happen when again three or more Scatters appear anywhere on the reels. Combined with the Expanding Wild feature, Alien Robots™ could go for the ‘Most Generous Free Spins Feature Award’ if you ask me.
Why Alien Robots?
With a maximum of 50 Free Spins combined with Sticky Wilds and Expanding Wilds, Alien Robots™ doesn’t have a lot to offer. Neither the design had much to offer. This all was forgiven as soon as you hit the Free Spins feature. However, it didn’t save the game from exit the NetEnt Casinos during the big fat HTML5 update.
Now Alien Robots™ isn’t available anymore, you might find a connection with the Cosmic Fortune™ slot instead. This space-themed slot entails riding off into space and chasing down bad guy UFOs. The theme is fantastic as the retro, 8-bit space villains fill the entire screen.
