Played on 20 Paylines across a standard five reels and three rows, retro game Reptoids Slot from Stockholm-based slot supremos Yggdrasil Gaming is inspired by the sci-fi notion of humans becoming reptiles, as the government works to control them. It was released near the end of 2017.
Reels turn against an urban background, and are set in a type of console, which is the Reptor Detector for identifying aliens! Oh, and there are plenty of cool voiceovers and sound effects to keep you entertained in this 1960s-set offering.
How to play
After the brief intro clip, you’re ready to play. Set your bets as you normally would, and set up Autoplay for the reels to turn without interruption for a certain number of spins if you want to just sit back and enjoy the ride. Equally, Reptoids Slot is a mobile-friendly game.
Bets kick off from a trifling 10p, while there’s a top price per spin of £100. Among the symbols, you’ll see reporters, nurses, cops, army generals and scientists, alongside several aliens or reptoids. Among the lesser-paying icons are Army medals in gold, silver and bronze.
Play in the standard way from left to right; you’ll generally need three of the same icon for a payout.
Reptoids Slot special features
The golden Wild symbol depicts the Mutants, and as usual, it replaces all the game’s other standard icons. The Scatter in this game is a gold coin. You can win with this symbol with just a couple on a Payline.
The president is one of the more lucrative icons, forking out 50x stake for five in a row if you’re playing at the maximum wager.
Activate this once a Scatter has landed in the Detector. Kick off with seven wager-free whirls, plus a string of sticky Wilds provides more payout potential. Every alien found in the spin which triggered the round stays locked in place for the duration of the feature.
And for each alien revealed during this perk, you get more freebies. Equally, should a pair of higher-paying symbols turn Wild, you’re in line for a couple of further free whirls, while all similar icons on the reels also become Wid.
The good news is that, during this round, in particular, you should have plenty of chances for great payouts.
Hit five Scatters on a single active Payline and bank a tidy non-progressive prize of 5,000x stake.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player is a solid 96.1% here, and you should find this game features somewhere in the middle in the volatility range.
Reptoids Slot is a great-looking game, but, of course, players have come to expect nothing less than top-notch graphics and 3D animations from the guys at Yggdrasil!
Overall, you should find it plays well, offering entertainment and potential rewards in equal measure, as well as being nice and user-friendly. One or two reviewers have commented on the lack of multipliers, and the time it takes to launch features, but do check it out for yourself.
