Blast Your Way to Wins in Pixel Invaders Slot
There are a handful of games that completely stand apart from the rest with how much influence they have had on the industry. Tetris, Super Mario Bros., Pac-Man, and, of course, Space Invaders which was first released exclusively on arcade systems back in 1978. Space Invaders has since seen ports, sequels, and homages on just about every gaming system ever created.
It’s no surprise that such an influential game has seen its fair share of imitators, a trend that the slot world has not been immune to. GameArt is the latest to attempt to imitate greatness with its latest release, Pixel Invaders slot.
Are you ready to blast off?
Pixel Invaders slot is built around the huge 7×7-symbol reels which offers endless possibilities when it comes to ways to win and bonus features.
The energy ball can land on the reels on any non-winning spin. The space it lands on and the space above, below, and to the left and right of it will all be destroyed. As the slot employs cascading reels, new symbols will fall into the empty spaces, giving you a chance to complete a winning combination. The supreme comet works in much the same way as the energy ball but will destroy the entire row and reel of symbols on which it lands.
There are not one but two ways to trigger a round of the Pixel Invaders slot’s free spins feature. The first is landing four or more scatter symbols. The second is charging the fuel level, which is done with seven consecutive cascades during a single base game spin.
The slot has four different levels of free spins. The level that you trigger will be dependent on the number of scatter symbols you utilize to unlock your round of free spins. Four scatters will trigger level one and each subsequent scatter symbol will unlock the next level. If you unlock a round of free spins by charging the fuel level, the free spin level will be selected at random.
- Level 1 – awards 20 free spins with a 1x multiplier
- Level 2 – awards 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier
- Level 3 – awards 8 free spins with a 4x multiplier and unlocks Mega Wild (2×2) symbols
- Level 4 – awards 5 free spins with a 10x multiplier and unlocks the morphing symbols feature which will transform all instances of low-paying symbols into high-paying symbols.
If you’re not keen on waiting around for your ship to arrive in space dock, you can select to purchase an intergalactic trip to a round of free spins.
Is Pixel Invades slot blasting off or crashing down?
I was not expecting Pixel Invaders slot to live up to the Space Invaders name, but that’s exactly what it did. The slot is pretty much the perfect slot game adaptation of a popular video game. The graphics are perfect retro goodness and the gameplay is packed with features both in the base game and during free spins. GameArt has done an astonishingly good job with this one!
The slot has medium to high volatility which gives it some variability between consistent small wins and rare big wins. The standout feature is, however, the huge 50,000x max multiplier that will allow you to play for up to €300,000 in winnings betting at just €6 a spin. Plus, if you want to bet at the €0.40 minimum, you’ll still be able to expect some pretty impressive wins. The slot has an RTP of 96.33%.
