Resident Evil 6 Slot Review
The Resident Evil series is one of the most popular survival horror series within the whole gaming community. From the original opening cinematic of the zombie from the original game to the appearance of Nemesis in Resident Evil 3, the series is known for epic moments.
It’s no surprise that they would have turned one of their titles into a slot game in order to give fans an even bigger taste of Resident Evil. Developed by Skywind and based on the Capcom series, Resident Evil 6 slot is all about saving the world whilst trying to win some cash prizes as well. Enter the world of survival horror.
As you open up the slot, you’ll get the opening cinematic from the Resident Evil 6 video game itself to get you in the right mood for the slot. You’ll notice that the slot seems to have a border stylised with the design of Resident Evil 6, it looks as if it’s optimised for mobiles. It can be a little jarring for people on desktops but it’s playable.
The top of the reels features a still from the game with certain lights highlighted to create a more animated feeling. It’ll come to no surprise that the 4 main characters of Resident Evil 6 are key figures on the reels. They each come with their own abilities and are literally taken from the game itself. Chris Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, Ada Wong and Jake Muller are all big features in this slot.
It’s a little disappointing to find out that Sherry Birkin, Helena Harper and Piers Nivan are missing from the slot entirely despite these characters being mains as well. Perhaps if Skywind included these in somewhere, it’d feel even better.
Between spins you’ll find Resident Evil 6 theme music playing between spins and eerie sounds to create a terrifying atmosphere for the slot. Honestly, the design is brilliant for the slot but is let down by the optimisation for mobiles and tablets.
It’s completely traditional in the sense of gameplay with 5-reels and 25 paylines. All you do is to match the symbols in order to win extra bonus rounds and cash prizes. The spin button, autospin and turbo button can be found to the bottom right of the reels. Note that the turbo button may not be available in the UK. The paytable and game rules can be found at the top left with other settings being available at the bottom right of the screen.
As expected for a slot based on a video game, Resident Evil 6 slot is a high volatility slot. The RTP is at a reasonable 95.09% which is about the average for an online slot. Perhaps, the biggest letdown is the base payout of 3,000x your stake by landing wilds on all 5 reels. You can win other payouts such as 1,500x your stake with 5 of a kind Ada symbols and 750x your stake for 5 Chris symbols.
Perhaps one of the most inventive branded slots for a video game. It has 4 of the main characters from the slot game and uses visuals from the game to make it feel more than just a cash grab. What is disappointing is that they’ve ignored the other protagonists and this may put some Resident Evil fans off.
The biggest let down has to be the maximum win of 3,000x your stake, which feels a little low for a high volatility game. Despite this, it’s an inventive and fun enough slot that most players will enjoy this. If you love Resident Evil games or just horror slots in general, then you should definitely check this one out. For the best experience, try this out on mobile.
