Yesterday, Stakelogic, an innovative iGaming provider based in Malta, released Spartans Vs Zombies Multiplays™, a slot that combines zombies and the historical stories of the Spartans, with their upcoming battle, as the zombies landed on the wrong city-state at the wrong time!
However, the main task of the player is to help the Spartans win the battle and save humanity. The battle represents the apocalypse, because the fate of the world depends on the outcome.
True to its title, the main theme of the game is zombies and the Spartans, the citizens of Sparta, which was a city-state in Laconia in ancient Greece remembered as a formidable military land force in 650 BC. The game takes place in Sparta, with rocky trails and stairs leading to the top of elevated areas.
The game is enhanced by Multiplays game mechanic, which pays out wins on the first 3 reels. However, if the fourth reel contributes to a win, it pays off again and again if the fifth reel boosts it further.
To win, players must form a combination of 3 similar symbols on the reels where symbols are separated into low-value, high-value, Wild and Scatter symbols on a dynamic 5×3 grid that offers 20 paylines. Furthermore, making a winning combination of any type of symbol awards players with a cash reward or activates a bonus feature where players can win additional rewards.
The basic low-value symbols are the 10, J, Q, K and A cards, while the high-value bonus symbols are a helm, a spear and two building structures with pillars. A combination of five-of-a-kind low-value symbols is worth 1.50x to 4x a player’s bet, rising to 5.50x to 10x for five-of-a-kind high-value symbols.
The game has high volatility, with a default RTP of 95.88% and a maximum win of 7,000x a player’s bet. Moreover, as for the RTP, there’s a chance for it to rise up to 96.1%, where players will experience beneficial results from their spins.
This slot game can be played on any device.
Spartan and Zombie Wilds – these Wilds can replace any symbol except the Scatter to make a winning combination. Furthermore, Wilds get sticky in the Zombie free spins feature, and the second Wild comes with a multiplier.
Wild reels – throughout Spartan free spins, every Free Spin permits reels 2, 3, and 4 to convert into Wilds. When this occurs, the full-stack Wilds occupy the reels, which automatically increases the chances for players to make a winning combination.
Spartans and Zombies Meter – this feature generates an individual number of symbols each time they land on the reels.
The Zombie meter is set to 3 each time a Zombie symbol lands on the reels throughout the base game. After that, the heart on the Zombie meter is reduced by 1 and activates the Free Spins feature when the meter is full. However, when there are no more hearts, the Zombie meter resets.
On the other hand, the Spartan Meter sets hearts to 3 for any Spartan symbol that lands on the reels throughout the base game. The same rules apply as for the Zombie meter.
Spartans Vs. Zombies Battle Bonus – through this feature, players witness the action where Spartans and Zombies battle, and those who win award players with matching Free Spins.
Players must land 3 Scatters on the reels to activate this feature. However, Scatters are only available on reels 1, 3 and 5.
Spartan Free Spins – when the Spartans emerge victorious from the previous feature or when the Spartan meter fills up the base game, this feature is activated.
Throughout Spartan Free Spins, players are automatically awarded with 10 Free Spins with a 2x multiplier and 2 bonuses.
Players can choose 2 shields prior to the start of the feature. Every shield increases the number of spins or the global multiplier.
Also, players can receive 1 extra Free Spin if the Scatter appears on the reels throughout the feature.
Zombie Free Spins – when the Zombies emerged victorious in the Spartans Vs. Zombies Battle Bonus feature or when the Zombie meter is full, this feature is activated.
During this feature, players are automatically rewarded 10 Zombie Free Spins and there’s a possibility that 1-2 Sticky Wilds will appear on the reels.
When 2 positions are taken with Sticky Wilds, the second one has a multiplier from 2x to 10x. Every Scatter through Zombie Free Spins awards players with 1 extra Free Spin.
Super Stake – this feature is triggered in the base game, when the player can increase the possibilities of activating Free Spins.
When the feature is triggered, the wager is doubled and the paytable is not.
Bonus Buy – throughout this feature, the player can purchase any of the Bonus rounds at a price. For example, Spartans or Zombie Free Spins cost 100x and 200x a player’s bet individually.
Moreover, the player can also purchase a random number of Spartan or Zombie Free Spins for the 150x a player’s bet.
Commenting on the launch, Andrew Fraser, Product Owner at Stakelogic, said: “Spartans Vs Zombies Multipays™ is our most action-packed slot to date and puts players at the heart of an epic battle. We have given players a war chest of bonus features, from Wilds to Free Spins, Multipliers and more, to help them emerge victorious. This really is a highly volatile slot that promises to put players on the edge of their seats from the first spin to the last.”
