It is undeniable that "The Zombies" is an extremely attractive slot both for its design and innovative features incorporated on it. As its name suggests, the plot of this game revolves around the daily life of a family of zombies comprised of mother, father, daughter and son, happy and proud reflect the typical family in The Zombie Nation, always smiling but apparently, judging by what I have seen throughout the game, they need to have always some homemade weapons at their disposal as a preventive measure against possible attacks other zombies may do.
This slot has good pictures, good animation, and quite a nice electronic music as background, its format is 4 x 5 reels, with 50 paylines and you can choose from several bet levels choosing between 1 and 5 coins (expressed as follows: 50, 100, 150, 200 and 250) and choosing the value of coins between $ 0.01 and $ 1.
One of the most original features on this game is called "Pick a Spin" and consists in the possibility to choose one of two ways when spinning the reels, these modes are "power game" and "easy game", in the first there is less likelihood of success but more chance of getting bigger profits, while the second provides more hits but generally smaller, and each mode manages its own set of symbols.
Remainder special features are:
- Zombie Dance Party: a round of 10 free spins is triggered with the appearance of 3 or more scatters with the image of dancing zombie family. The feature can be re-triggered more easily because more scatters are drawn during the free games, and every time you do it, two turns are added to your round. There are also additional bonuses involved on parents / zombie bad combinations, better explained on information section of game.
- Zombie Game Bonus: this round is triggered by parents / bad zombie symbols combination and involves throwing the bad zombies one of these four objects: rubber duck, boot, football and claxon. Each object grants a bonus of different value and have 3 attempts to strike bad zombies and each time you fail delete your accumulated bonuses, if you fail the latest shot, you get a bonus 9x as a consolation prize to be added to bonus resulting from the combination parents / bad zombie, which varies depending on the number of symbols matched and then multiplied by your bet. This feature has the best potential for big winnings.
As you can see, features of this game are quite complex and I just described them in a general way, and I consider it important to read and understand them before you start playing, because when I had my chance, I hit my first two shots and I missed the third one, for which I chose the rubber duck, and as expected I had to resign myself to get a consolation 9x prize.
Overall the game is very nice but you need to understand it, because otherwise you could become discouraged by low rates stipulated on paytable.
