Personal testers opinion about Aliens slot
This is a fantastic game, but there are a few “but”. Never change the value of the stake during the game. After increasing the bet, the cycle starts from the very beginning. After the big winning, you need to finish the game. I recommend skipping the value of the stakes of €7.5 and €15. Unfortunately, for an unknown reason, Aliens online slot was removed from all casinos. Possibly that there was an error or bug that players could use for winning money. The game does not work now. The reason and time for returning are unknown.

Appearance and graphic design of the Aliens online slot
The game follows the movie trilogy about Aliens. While triggering Aliens slot, we see an extended intro that creates an appropriate atmosphere. The story takes us on a spaceship that was attacked by aliens. The graphic design is beyond praise. There`re many animations and detailed symbols. It's not clear from the beginning what you need to gather or collect. There are a lot of small icons which are either added or disappear. It immediately seems unusual that during the roll of three symbols in the pay line, the machine turns with a common for search bonus (or scatter) symbol.
The slot machine offers the game on the five reels in three rows on the fifteen active pay lines. It has two consecutive bonus games, wild symbol, the multiplier of the winning and re-spins. Maximum win is 570,000 coins. The minimum value of one coin is 0,01€. The maximum amount of the coin is €1.
Usual spins: The Search
During usual spins of Aliens online slot, there is the alien`s activity counter with nine cells at the top of the screen. All winning symbols (except wilds) are put there (for each symbol you get +1). These symbols are put in the counter from newest to oldest (left to right) winning. Thus, the number of symbols in the counter will increase their multiplier.
If the same symbol wins on several lines, it will be added to counter only once. Symbols are added from left to right. If you didn't win anything in the current spin, the symbol that is situated on the left would be deducted from the counter. In this case, the multiplier for that symbol is returned to the standard (1). If a player wants to increase the stake, the counter will be reset. Full counter triggers the free spins feature (Encounter).
The bonus feature Level 1: The Encounter
On the first level of the free spins feature level, you must break through the corridor to get to the queen of the hive. You have ten spins to reach the hive queen. At the beginning of the feature, all symbols from the counter are transferred here with their multipliers. During the first spin, the cheapest symbols will appear in the middle of the field. With each new spin more and more expensive symbols will appear.
After each spin, the "wheel of ammo" appears which can add more spins. You can win the maximum +2 ammo (+1 or 0). The counter shows the remaining ammo. With each spin, one ammo is spent on protection against aliens. When ammo is empty, the feature ends.
Level 2: The Queen of Hive
The second level of the bonus feature is triggered if you survived at first one (got extra ammo to the very end). Now your task is to destroy the alien`s hive until you`re out of ammo. The involved symbols in the round are: grenade, health hive counter, bullets counter and two reels. At the beginning of the level, the weapon is loaded with four bullets, which lasts for five spins of grenade power. The counter of the hive's health is full at the beginning of the level.
Firstly, grenade damage level and the multiplier of this damage is chosen randomly. Grenades are thrown into the queen, and then one cartridge is used to protect the soldier. The multipliers appear randomly, increasing the damage from grenades from 1 to 10 times more. The scale of the hive's health has four stop-points. When health ends, and the hive is destroyed, the player receives 240x of his total bets. For example, if you played for €10 and went through all the levels, you will receive €2400 for the winning.
The spinning continues until you have ammo for protection. If bullets finish before you destroy the hive, the bonus stops, and you return to the usual spins with an empty counter of alien`s activity. You will get all coins that were given at stop-points at hive's health. Best combination that kills Queen of the hive with 1 grenade is 10 and 10x.
