Look and feel
Alien Robots puts the player in the world of cute robots, bearing a resemblance to those used in the Pixar film Wall-E, but also with the feel of a 1980s arcade game. The slot has a deep space backdrop with laser beams dividing the gameboard. The gameboard spins in the traditional style, with robots of varying shapes, colours and sizes representing the higher value payouts.
At the lower end of the payscale players will find the familiar ace-through-ten playing card symbols, although these are rendered in blocky pixels to maintain the futuristic theme. Sound effects include robotic bleeps, clanking and mechanical whirrs which play throughout the game to embellish the atmosphere, and all robot symbols have their own unique payline animation.
While Alien Robots offers 243 ways to win, the game can also be played conventionally as a 30 payline slot by adjusting payline options. Using the plus and minus arrows below the reels, players can toggle the bet level and coin level.
A toggle allows players to choose how many paylines they wish to play, and playing with all 243 ways enabled costs 60 coins at a chosen denomination. Coin sizes range from £0.01-£0.50 and bet levels range from 1-5. The adjustments make the slot playable for between £0.01 and £150.00 per spin, and there are separate paytables featuring for the 243 ways to win mode and conventional payline-based play.
The Alien Robot symbol is the Wild symbol used that acts as substitute to all other symbols to complete a winning combination, not including the Scatter symbol. An optional bet mode can be enabled or disabled.
Alien Robots has a free spins feature where up to 50 bonus games can be won. It is triggered whenever three or more UFO scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels and players will receive 10, 20 or 50 free spins, which is determined by the number of triggering symbols, with Wilds now becoming more valuable. During the free spins, the Wild symbol will trigger the expanded Sticky Wild feature. The Sticky Wild will cover the entire reel and while other reels are re-spun which gives players an opportunity to score several winning combinations with a single spin.
