Zap Attack Features
Zap Attack is set in the stunning and amusingly named Roswealth, a small desert town evocative of those of ‘Close Encounters’, ‘Mars Attacks’ and, well, ‘Roswell’. After choosing your bet, you’ve got the potential to land wins on 25 paylines, with an average 96% RTP.
As you’d imagine, the paylines begin from the left-hand side of the grid. 10 to Ace are your low pays, awarding between 1 to 1.5 times your bet for a 5 of a kind. The 5 characters—sheriff, waitress, old lady, shovel-carrying hick and alien—are your mid to high pays.
5 matching symbols will win between 2x and 10x the bet, although Alien symbols pay out even if only 2 of them drop. Your Wilds come in the form of Flying Saucers, and they can substitute for all symbols, except for Scatter symbols.
Expanding Multiplier Wilds
Now the fun really starts. When one of these ‘Invading Wild’ flying saucer symbols fall, they expand to cover the whole reel with a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x, multiplying any winning combinations it’s a part of.
But that’s not all. These aliens are a fertile bunch: they can’t stop multiplying! If more than one Expanding Multiplier falls, they multiply each other. For example, a 3x and a 4x will give you a combined multiplier of 12x. Players could potentially be awarded a multiplier of 125x (5x5x5)! Beam me up!
Scatter symbols come in the form of TV sets—land at least 3 to gain access to the Bonus Game. 3, 4 or 5 TV Scatter symbols award 7, 11 and 15 free spins, respectively. If you land TV sets in the Bonus Game itself, you get even more free spins:
- 2 TVs = 3 free spins
- 3 TVs = 5 free spins
- 4 TVs = 7 free spins
- 5 TVs = 9 free spins
To the right of the Bonus Game, you’ll see a hierarchy of the Roswealth inhabitants. Some Alien symbols that fall onto the grid will be toting lasers, with which they’ll randomly zap the human characters.
Once a character’s been zapped 10 times, they turn into high-pay Alien symbols themselves, both to the right of the grid and within it, thereby upping your chances of landing winning combinations. When an alien-human transition takes place, players are also awarded another free spin. The new alien symbols remain in place until the end of the round.
Some of you outside the UK can gain immediate entry to the Bonus Game by shelling out 60x your stake for 3 guaranteed Scatter Symbols, 120x for 4 Scatter Symbols and 250x for 5 Scatter symbols.
