A look to the past
Space Invaders was first created in Japan by Taito and released back in 1978. It featured a fighter ship, which players must control and destroy fleets of alien invaders that are trying to progress down the screen. Time was of the essence and the game was a hit all over the world. Older players will remember the original Space Invaders with a warm and fuzzy nostalgia; however, the new iteration hopes to attract a younger crowd to the Space Invaders family.
The Space Invaders slot machine game is set in an old-school arcade cabinet complete with traditional-style buttons. The symbols featured are the same, so you will see the space ships, cannons, the moon. and a monster that experienced players will recognise.
There are 10 payline available in this Ash Gaming slot and you can win with combinations both from right to left and left to right. As each spin is taken, the ship will travel the screen to line up with a reel before it shoots the lower value symbols. These symbols can turn wild.
Bonus features and wilds
There are several random wilds, along with a UFO wild that appears when the gun fires at the alien ship. The wild symbols are then released onto the reels. An easy to play and follow game, the features are regular enough to keep players on their toes throughout the session. The symbols you will find include three aliens - one blue, one purple and one green. These aliens can give you 20 times the amount of your initial bet.
All the combinations in the game are made up of three, four or five identical symbols appearing on a payline. You will also notice icons such as the flying saucers, huge aliens, a planet and space cannons. As these are not as common, they can reward you with up to 150 times your wager if you are lucky enough to find them.
Throughout the slot, there are consistent throwbacks to the original game. This will take older players on a trip down memory lane as they battle to save the day. The easy gameplay is in line with the arcade version and features five reels and 10 paylines. The aim of the game is to collect winning combinations of symbols on the paylines, which will in turn release the cash prizes. The + and - buttons allow you to choose your wager - all you need to do then is simply place your bet.
Choose the turbo mode to add a little boost to your reels; alternatively, pick the autoplay mode so that you can choose your wager and enjoy automatic spins. When you've had your fill of this game, why not try one of the hundreds of others we offer?
