How to play ZombiesClick here for a print friendly version
Zombies have been a fixture in pop culture for decades, and now, they have infected the world of online video slots. Zombies™ from NetEnt™ is a highly entertaining slot game that will have you feeling as though the walking dead are creeping up right behind you. The background is an image of an abandoned mall, reminiscent of the classic zombie film, Dawn of the Dead. Creepy music plays every time you take the reels for a spin, and when you win, you might jump out of your seat with the music that starts playing. Fans of zombie movies and people looking for a good scare while they play slots are certain to be entertained by this incredibly imaginative game.
Whether you have played numerous online slot games before or if this is the first one you are deciding to try out, the basics of getting started are simple. After a spooky introduction, you are able to determine how much you want to bet for each spin. After you have all that squared away, you hit the big green button at the bottom of the screen to spin the reels. Some basic symbols you have likely seen in other slot games can be seen. A, K, Q, J and 10 pay out lower than other symbols, but they certainly feel right at home in this game because it looks like someone wrote them out in creepy blue blood. Some of the other fun symbols you are going to find scrolling through the reels include a severed eyeball, bloody brain, chainsaw and so much more.
There is the traditional way to win in this game, which entails getting three or more of the same symbol within a pay line. However, there are more inventive ways Zombies™ results in a payout. Keep an eye out for the zombie virus containers. These are the Scatter symbols in this game, and if three appear anywhere on the second, third and fourth reels, then you are awarded with five free spins. After each spin in this round, you are given an additional multiplier, so on your last free spin, you could potentially win quite a bit.
Something else to watch out for in this slot game is the Wild symbols. These can appear anywhere on the first, second, fourth and fifth reels. These can be used as a substitute for any other symbol to increase your chances of winning. The only thing it cannot be used for is as a Scatter symbol. You might even end up getting the Stacked Wild. This one can only appear on the third reel. An entire zombie will take up the entirety of the reel. Another possibility is getting the Random Wild feature. You will know you have entered this round because two zombie heads are going to take over the reels. These heads get shot in the head six times because that is how you kill a zombie, and six Wilds are awarded throughout the table. Even if you have played numerous slot games in the past, you have never played one like this before.
