About Mars Attacks Slot
Mars Attacks slot is an online casino game created by Blueprint Gaming. It is played on a 5x3 reel platform with 20 paylines and has a theme surrounding the Hollywood cult film from 1996, when aliens ‘invade’ and surround the top cities in the world. The two highest paying symbols in the game are the skeleton wild and the Mars Attacks logo. Other high paying symbols include Martians, a ray gun, TV and an eyeball.
By finding 3 bonus symbols, the Mars Attacks bonus round will be triggered. There are then 5 different mini-games that can be played and if you wish to go for a different feature then you can gamble. Keep an eye out for the 5 modifiers that are possible on any spin too: Sub-Zero Laser, Mega Shrink Ray, Expansion Cannon, Radiation Blaster and Abduction Beam.
Access Mars Attacks on mobile, desktop and tablet devices, either at home or when you’re on the move.
How To Play Mars Attacks
Knowing the function of the buttons in the Mars Attacks is really important, and the best way to gain all knowledge of the game is through accessing the paytable icon. This can be done by clicking the Menu and then the Paytable, which will bring up the value of each symbol in the game. Further details on the bonus rounds can be found through clicking the ? button.
Making sure your bet amount is correct is crucial too, and this can be edited through using the up and down arrows above and below Total Bet. The minimum that a bet can be reduced to is £0.10, while the maximum is £500. Once you have decided on a bet amount, you can set the Mars Attacks slot to play through one full round by clicking the Spin button to the right of the reels.
If you would like to set up the Mars Attacks slot to play through a set number of spins automatically, you can do so by clicking the Autoplay button just underneath Spin. 10, 25, 50, 75 or 100 spins can be set up. You will also have the option of setting up a loss limit or a single win limit, which will stop Autoplay if either of those numbers are hit.
Mars Attacks Modifiers
In the Mars Attacks slot game, there are 5 modifiers that can be activated at random during any spin of the game.
Wilds that can substitute for other symbols will be fired onto the reels in random positions, which may help form winning combinations.
Mega Shrink Ray
When the Mega Shrink Ray comes into effect, the symbols will shrink until there are 5 symbols in each reel. The number of ways to win during this modifier will then be increased to a huge 3125.
The abduction Beam can remove symbols from the reels as the Mothership hovers above, causing a new reel set to cascade down from the sky.
A mystery symbol can be added to the reels which can expand to cover other positions nearby too. In the end, they will all transform into the same symbol.
The Sub-Zero Laser modifier will freeze winning symbols into place, then the reels will spin again. The re-spin will carry on until the win can’t be improved.
Mars Attacks Bonus Rounds
Land 3 or more Martian bonus symbols on the reels at any time to trigger the Mars Attacks bonus round. At the beginning of the round, you will choose between 5 zones on the map to determine which mini-bonus you will receive. The choice is between Europe, Asia, Africa, America or Australia.
There will be suspects on the board in the Spy Hunter round, and the objective is to choose them and reveal either Humans or Martians. With every Martian that is revealed, you will be awarded a cash multiplier. If you are able to land 3 Humans, any bonus winnings will be collected. By choosing the Martian Ambassador, a big money boost will be awarded.
We Come In Peace
In the We Come In Peace bonus, containers will appear at the side of the screen. The banks will fill up, and the value will be awarded as part of the bonus winnings panel, with a multiplier or big money bonus added. By revealing the Martian Orb, an explosion will occur and the round will end.
The DNA Analysis round will credit you with 5 Free Spins to play through on a 5x4 reel platform. Expanding DNA Wilds will be active during these Free Spins too, which can make their way down the reels eventually coming to a stop. After each spin, the Wild will expand by 1 position, potentially forming more winning combinations.
During the Martian Takeover, 10 Free Spins will be credited which are played on a 5x3 reel platform. In this bonus, Roaming Wilds are active and the Roaming Robot Wild may actually fill an entire reel. At the end of each Free Spin, the Roaming Robot Wild will move once to the left, exiting the reels if it was on reel 1 previously.
In the Final Stand bonus, unlimited Free Spins will be awarded. These are played on a 5x3 reel platform, with a special advance symbol potentially appearing on reel 2 for Humans or reel 4 for Martians. When they are found on the reels, their respective progress bar will be filled. The Humans have the ability to multiply wins whereas Martians can eliminate particular symbols. If either the Humans or Martians progress bar reaches the final segment then the feature will come to an end. A victory for the Humans will see a big money boost added to any outstanding winnings.
If you would rather Gamble for a different bonus feature then you can do so. The Final Stand cannot be gambled though as it is the biggest bonus round that there is in the Mars Attacks slot. If you win the Gamble, you will get the bonus round you have gambled for. If you lose it, you will lose the bonus round you had, but will be awarded a Mystery Win Prize instead.
Jackpot King Progressive
Huge amounts of money could be won on any spin of the Mars Attacks slot thanks to the Jackpot King Progressive feature. If 5 Jackpot King symbols appear on the reels at the same time, you can then attempt to collect Crown symbols and move up the ladder. If 15 or more Crown symbols are landed, the Wheel King will be activated, which has big win multipliers and the Progressive pots of the Royal, Regal and Jackpot King amounts. The Jackpot King is the largest and will be a massive amount of money if you are able to claim it.
