Alien Robots slot from respected developer NetEnt plays on a conventional 5×3 grid and is themed on extraterrestrial creatures and robots, with a cast of cool, colourful characters. Play 30 Paylines or double your stake and benefit from having up to 243 ways to win.
Originally released in 2013 and updated in December 2020, this 3D game is a vibrantly coloured affair, punctuated by squeaks and pips – presumably the sounds of aliens communicating.
What’s more, it combines beings from another world and artificial lifeforms in one absorbing theme. But there’s nothing scary or alien about these robots, despite the title – they’re here to help you win!
How to play
Symbols on the reels include the standard less valuable playing cards A through 10, and these are joined by red, yellow, orange and dog-like robots. Win by landing three icons or more from left to right on an active Payline.
And if you’re lucky enough to land five red robots playing at the top bet per spin, you’ll be looking at a tidy 10,000-coin payday.
What’s more, with the bet range from 0.01 to a high-rolling 150 per spin, you can enjoy Alien Robots however devil-may-care or cautious you’re feeling. Pick your bet level from 1 to 10, and your coin value between 0.01 and 0.50.
Finally, the Autoplay function is here if you want to set the reels to turn and then just kick back and enjoy the game.
Alien Robots Slot Special Features
The Scatter is the UFO symbol, and the game also features a Wild symbol, an alien, pink-eyed robot. The latter does its standard thing of standing in for all other icons bar the Scatter.
As usual, you’ll need three Scatters to activate this. Once it kicks in, you can win up to 50 wager-free whirls. Three, four or five Scatters will land you 10, 20 and 50 freebies respectively.
The good news is that the round can be retriggered with another hat-trick of Scatters. However, you may find the perk doesn’t trigger particularly frequently.
Expanding Sticky Wild feature
This kicks in if a Wild appears during the free spins mentioned above. It then expands to cover the whole reel and the reel respins, boosting your chances of walking away with a hefty prize. Afterwards, the icon goes back to being a regular Wild.
There may not be a progressive jackpot, but the top prize here is 50,000 coins.
Return to Player
RTP or Return to Player in Alien Robots slot is a healthy 96.3%, while variance is on the low-to-medium side.
You should enjoy this game and get your head around it pretty quickly, even without prior slots experience. And the option to buy more ways to win is a real cracker.
What’s more, NetEnt has paid strong attention to detail in the design of this slot, even if some reviewers have said the animations aren’t as sharp as those in other NetEnt games, such as Guns N’Roses.
The set-up is pretty basic, so Alien Robots slot is a great choice if you’re still perfecting your skills. It’s also fun, cute and with a retro-style, Space Invaders-like feel to the graphics. Equally, you’ll love it if you simply can’t be doing with lots of extra complicated features.
