Emerging from the skies to claim this week’s SlotBeats’ Slot of the Week crown is Octopus Armada, the second release from Blue Guru Games.
The sci-fi themed slot features an invasion of Earth by intergalactic cephalopods intent on revenge after humanity poised their oceans – and it is the role of the player to defend our world.
A medium volatility 5×3 title with 15 paylines and an RTP of 89.85 – 95.78 per cent, Octopus Armada has a free spins round, with the alien enemies’ eight arms, nine brains and three hearts playing a key role in gameplay.
Kristian Hassall, Commercial Manager at Blue Guru Games, remarked: “Octopus Armada is our second release and a great example of some of the stronger narratives and backstories we aim to have in all our content eventually.
“With duplicating wilds throughout and a bonus that eliminates multiple symbols whilst adding free spins, you can really build some strong wins whilst enjoying the nod to the 1950’s sci-fi movie theme.”
During the base game, wilds are duplicated once or twice into new reel positions to create the highest possible win combination, and there is a chance to trigger the free spins mode during every spin with a wild.
Additionally, when the free spins round is active and four wilds are landed, every four wilds will and on the reels, with the lowest paying of the low-pay and high-pay symbols removed.
Four free games are awarded for every four wilds the player lands.
