Arcader Slot is currently available only in free play mode in your country.

Arcader is a fruit-themed 15-payline video slot operating on the Thunderkick software platform. The wild symbol is the letter W, the Expander symbol expands the reel it appears on and the Bonus symbol, which is the scatter in the form of the letter B, triggers Free Spins. Players are welcome to try the slot on this page for free or visit any of the Thunderkick casinos found in the listings to play the game for real money.

To spin the 8-bit-like reels filled with diverse fruit symbols, players should first decide on their preferred wager. Pressing “Bet” chooses the coin size, ranging from 0.2 to 100. “Spin” initiates the game and “Auto Play” turns the reels for a preset number of times uninterrupted.

3 scatters trigger 9 Free Spins played with a x1 multiplier, 4 scatters award 9 Free Spins with a x3 multiplier and 5 scatters grant 9 Free Spins with a x9 multiplier.

Players can acquire 1 sticky wild chance on the 3 central reels with every Free Spin. The sticky wilds remain sticky for the entire Bonus game.

Mystery symbols, the letter M, trigger the Mystery game. 3 M symbols lead to the Mystery game played at a x1 multiplier, 4 Mystery symbols result in the Mystery game with a x2 multiplier and 5 M symbols trigger the Mystery game with a x6 multiplier.

Retro gaming has become a huge phenomenon over the last decade or so and it's now at the point where a huge portion of the population have childhood memories of playing old school computer games and crave a little of that retro action for a nostalgia fix. Hundreds of insanely popular youtube channels have sprung up to fill this demand as well as retro games shops and even shows on the big TV stations such as the recent "Go 8 Bit!" so it's no surprise that we're starting to get slot machines in this crazy retro style as well.

As far as I can remember Arcader is the first attempt I have seen from a major slot provider, but I'm sure it's not going to be the last! Considering Thunderstruck's usual modus operandi is super flashy 3D graphics with limited gameplay I would imagine that this game represented something of a challenge for them, but I think they did really well!

The graphics are pretty much what you would expect with the symbols being made up of big blocky pixels. I think it looks great though and the quick "Great!" and "Nice! popups that appear on the screen after a decent win are a welcome change from the long and boring "Big Win!" animations in other games. I also love the way winning combinations are highlighted after each winning spin and the sound effects fit in with the action really well.

The game has two features, the first of which is a basic pick me round with a small twist in that more than three bonus symbols will award a multiplier to each of your picks - as high as 9x for five of a kind. Like most of these bonus rounds it can be extremely frustrating if you pick the wrong item straight away and get kicked out of the bonus immediately, but some decent sized wins are possible if you make several good picks in a row with the 9x multiplier active.

The free spins are where it's at though of course, and there's even some sticky wilds available too! At the start of each free spin one spot from the central three reels will be zapped and a sticky wild added. It's possible to get a wild in all nine spots but this is unlikely as the game can pick the same spot again even if there is already a sticky wild in place there, meaning you gain nothing. In general though you tend to end up with around five sticky wilds by the end of the free spins most of the time and wins under 30x stake are very unlikely in my experience.

I really enjoyed playing this game, I didn't even find myself reaching for the mute button after playing a few hundred spins on it which definitely makes a change for me - the music on most slots drives me crazy! This has to be one of my favourite Thunderkick games so far and I definitely recommend it.

Arcader is an old school slot created by Thunderkick. Mixed theme of space and fruits set in the backdrop of some planet or space. This 5 reel slot can create big wins especially when you get all 5 bonus symbols on the reels. This game's features include sticky expanding wilds, free spins, mystery game and multipliers.

The top paying symbol in the game is the bar which gives you a win of 20x your total stake when landing 5 in a row. The red seven is next and the standard symbols are completed by the bell, the melon, the lemon, the plum, the orange and the cherry. The wild symbol can appear as single or in expanded form and only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.

The mystery game is accessed when 3 "M" scattered symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Upon entering the game you select from tiles/squares and reveal the hidden prices underneath these tiles. There are about 20 tiles and 4 of them has an "X" mark which means end of the mystery game.

The Free Spins feature is triggered when 3 or more "B" scattered symbols land on the reels. You can get 9 free spins with up to a 9x multiplier with the possibility to get expanding sticky wilds depending on the number of bonus scattered symbols land on the reels.

I played this game a couple of times but luck was never on my side. It is very difficult to trigger the bonus feature to access free spins. The mystery game is accessible most of the time, but I bust always on my 3rd or 4th pick. Same as the north light bonus round in wild north slot. Overall I think this game looks very modern given its derived from an old school look. I normally play free rolls with this game and manage to win some free spins. This game can be very hot at times, especially when you have 4 or 5 bonus symbols on the reels. You should definitely give this game a try.

When the Thunderkick representative in Askgamblers informed that a new game would be released soon, that was last year, I was pretty excited and waited for it to come out. The day came, and Arcader was announced. I logged into one of my regular casino that has Thunderkick games, loaded up the new game, and gave it some trial runs, with some free spins at first, followed by some real money plays after that.

My initial impression of Arcader was one of disappointment. Not a lot though, but it wasn't up to my expectation nonetheless. Somehow, Thunderkick game designers liked to use retrospective aspects in their games, or maybe they had just wanted to see how the gambling market would respond to such games. If you're not familiar or unsure of what I'm talking about, it's simply about using 8-bits graphics integrated into modern 3D presentation. Sounds a little odd, but take a look at the game and you'll see what I mean. All symbols for the game are in 8-bits graphics, meaning, they are simple, basic, and without any realistic aspects of the actual items they represent. The fruits, for example, are not realistically represented as the fruits in Fruit Warp. That's the big difference in the two. My preference has always been for graphics as in Fruit Warp, never like those as in Arcader.

Putting quality of graphics aside, I must admit though that I found the background soundtrack rather catchy and lively, and with good sound effects too. I like this bit. Animations in the game are okay, within expectations, and those woman voices are acceptable too. Maybe they are supposed to be robotic or computerised speeches, to suit the theme of the game, but I could only hear them as women's voices nonetheless. Nothing bad in that, just a point to mention in passing, hehehe.

The game plays quite well, as in most of the other Thunderkick's games. They don't eat up your credits like hungry lions would eat their prey, as some games would, but instead, the game allows you to enjoy it at a slow and steady pace. I like this bit too. The features are basically the same as any other, meaning, a free spins feature game and a bonus game too, but both presented in Thunderkick's own 8-bits 3D way. The Bonus game offers 9 free spins with sticky wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4, whilst the Mystery Bonus game offers a 'pick and win' game, awarding cash prizes for each successful item picked. Pick an 'X' and you're dead! Hahaha.

DISLIKED

There's only one thing that I don't quite like about this Arcader game. The Wilds don't pay for themselves and they don't multiply any wins either. Come to think of it, neither is there any win multiplier in the free spins game. Wish they was though! Oh, what the heck, that's more than just one thing that I don't like about Arcader, doesn't it? Hehehe.
