Zombie Hoard Slot Machine
Try Microgaming Slots
Microgaming has a new slot release created by one of their partner game studios, Slingshot Studios. As the title implies, Zombie Hoard is a zombie-themed slot which features impressive cartoony graphics, top-notch special features and really engaging gameplay.
The Wild in Zombie Hoard is the game’s logo. It will play an essential role in the slot, so pay attention to it. You will need for it to land on the right position on the reels so it can help you form winning combos with it and regular symbols. The Wild cannot be used as a replacement for Scatters, but you probably expected that.
However, you can benefit from the Wild in another way, since it also has the ability to appear Super Stacked on reel 3 and 4 and give you some major wins.
The Free Spins feature is also present and the cool thing is that you can trigger it in several ways. Look out for the Brain symbols, because they are the Scatters in the slot. Land 3 to 5 Scattered Brain symbols and you will trigger the Free Spins. Or, collect 30 or more tokens into the stash. The tokens are the lowest-paying symbols which you collect throughout the game which can actually give you multiple Free Spins, up to 34 actually.
During the Free Spins, you will again get Stacked Wilds, but on all the reels this time. In addition, you will get a 2x Multiplier attached to all wins.
Theme & Design
Contrary to what the name of the game may imply, Zombie Hoard is not a scary slot. Actually, it features cartoon-style graphics that will portray the theme with a bit of a comedy feel. Since the slot is cartoony and involves zombies, you should not expect it to be realistic, but fun and entertaining. For symbols, you will get human brains, zombies, game's logo and playing card Royals, adapted to the theme.
Wagering & Paylines
Microgaming and Slingshot Studios have set a rather unusual number of paylines and betting range for this slot. You get 9 paylines, and since the line bet usually starts with $0.01, you get a minimum bet of $0.09. The line bet can go up to $5.00, so for 9 paylines, the maximum bet you can place is $45.00.
Now, from what we could calculate, during the free spins, you can get around $100,000.00 with the 2x Multiplier added to the wins. However, the slot is expected to give you more than a $500,000.00 maximum payout. This is a pretty decent maximum payout, one that is not unusual for a big name like Microgaming.
Zombie Hoard is not the best game by Microgaming, we’ll give you that, however, it still has a lot to offer. The Super-Stacked Wilds, the number of Free Spins, the token collection and the 2x Multiplier are fairly interesting features that can spice the gameplay up. The theme and design are cute, cartoony and fun. The payout potential is rather solid, so if you’re not totally against cartoony slots, you should go ahead and try it. However, if you don’t enjoy unrealistic slots, you may as well look for something else. There are plenty of other slots that offer payouts just like this one but feature a far better, unique theme.
