When the large list of online casinos began to burst through into the online gaming industry it was by far the slots and slot machines which were the first games to be introduced. Therefore with the growing demand for more and new and unique slots, online casinos such as the casino New Zealand have collaborated with some of the leading online games creators such as Netent. Netent – Net Entertainment – have not only produced dozens of various video slots and classic slots such as Ghost Pirates and Blood Suckers, but it has also brought these games to a whole new level thanks to their fantastic features and themes.
One of the first video slots to have been created by Netent is that of Alien Robots. But before going into further details on the description of Alien Robots, players must first be made aware of the difference between a video slots and a classic online casino slot. Although the New Zealand casino pokies comprise of both types, it is the video slots which provide more variation in reference to their means in producing high wins for players. In classic slots, players will expect to play and operate with the same form of game play as the classic fruit machines which were first introduced in land based casinos; with symbols such as fruit, jokers and BARS. On the other hand, it is difficult to generalise all video slots as each one of them comprises of its own individual features and theme which are unlike any other video slots to be found online. Therefore Alien Robots is one such pokie. Based on the theme of alien robots which spend their time travelling through space, it is up to the online casino player to spin its reels to help the alien robots in finding wins. Due to the use of state of the art animation and crisp graphics, these cartoon-like figures produce a fun and quirky game play. Among the various characters and symbols to be found within Alien Robots include five different alien robots figures and of course the standard slot machine numbers and letters: A, K, Q, J and 10. One must note however that in order to receive the highest possible payout, they would need to spin a combination of the alien robot figures while the lowest is that of the letters. But one must not fear when of not winning anything when playing Alien Robots as Netent has ensured that players have an opportunity of winning further bonus options.
Alien Robots is a video slot comprised of the standard five reels and three rows. Through a series of bet lines, bet ways and bet levels, online casino New Zealand players have the chance to choose from a maximum of thirty bet lines, two hundred and forty three bet ways and five bet levels. However as is the case with any of the virtual casino games, in order to win the highest possible amounts, players must be prepared to place the highest possible bets they can. This will increase their chances in winning more bonus coins as well as more free spins. In order to provide a more user friendly option to this, Alien Robots has also included the max bet option. By clicking on this option instead of the spin button, players will automatically activate the maximum bet lines and bet level possible within Alien Robots per spin. To revert from having to click on this option after each and every single round, the auto play will enable players to play for the max bet a selected number of rounds. This will dismiss the use of having to click on the max bet or spin button each time. Although these are useful options to play with in Alien Robots, it is the additional features which prove to be the most rewarding. These include the wild substitutions, scatter winds, free spins and the Alien Robots expanding sticky wilds. In order to achieve the Alien Robots free spins, players must achieve three or more scatter symbols in the form of alien robots’ spaceships anywhere on their reels after a spin. Depending on the total number of scatter symbols which appear, this will determine the total number of free spins. With three scatter symbols, the player will receive ten free spins; with four scatter symbols, the player will receive twenty free spins and finally with the maximum of five scatter symbols, the player will receive fifty free spins. Included with these is also the possibility of winning additional Alien Robots free spins when three or more scatter symbols re-appear. But not matter the numbers, these free spins are played at the same bet level and lines as the spin which activated them in the first place. In fact in order to achieve the maximum possible free spins of Alien Robots (five) the expanded sticky wild would need to take place. This Alien Robots feature may only be activated during the free spins when wild symbols appear on winning bet lines or bet ways. When this occurs, the sticky wilds will expand to cover the whole reel on which it appeared and will in turn be held into its position while the rest of the reels re-spin for one more time. This will allow for players to receive an additional chance in winning larger sums with Alien Robots.
It is understandable that there may be some players who might have never heard of this game or have never attended any online casino games for that matter. In these cases as well as the chance to better acquaint themselves with the pokies, online casinos such as the free New Zealand casino has enabled all its virtual games to be provided with a certain amount of free credit. With this amount, online casino players (whether they have created an account with the casino or not) will be able to test out and practice the particular game for as long as they desire. But one must note that although their features will still remain active in free mode, winnings may not be cashed out but only added to the already existing free credit.
