Alien Video Slot Machine Games
ALIEN Video Slots is a slots franchise based on the Alien movies starring Sigourney Weaver. International Game Technology has made a fortune producing slot machines based on American pop culture. Sitcom and game show franchises have been converted into some of the most famous and profitable slot machines in the world. So it's no wonder that IGT would make an iconic movie franchise like ALIEN into a slot machine.
Alien Video Slots Specs
Alien Video slots is a 5-reel, 20-payline machine. The maximum coin bet on Alien slots is 400 coins. This qualifies you for a top jackpot of 200,000 coins. The jackpot is hit when five ALIEN symbols appear on any payline.
Alien Egg Bonus
When ALIEN egg icons appear on the 3rd through 5th paylines, it triggers the Alien Egg Bonus Game. Nine eggs will appear on the slots screen. You select 1 of the 9 eggs, which breaks to reveal a coin bonus. Players continue to select eggs until the "collect" icon appears.
If a broken egg reveals "collect", the game is over. You still get money from this loss. You collect 2x your initial wager for each remaining unselected egg on the screen, which isn't a bad consolation prize.
Alien Hunt Bonus
Another icon on the reels is a spaceship door. When three of these appear on any of the 1st three paylines, the ALIEN Hunt Bonus Game is triggered. Players navigate six stages to collect maximum coin amounts on the bonus game.
The first five stages of the bonus game are quite similar. You will see six different boxes at the bottom of the game screen. Behind these symbols are one of three different icons: an Alien creature, a weapon or a "throw all" icon.
Weapon symbols add money values to your bonus game total. The "throw all" symbol actually add all weapon values to your total, and is therefore the best icon to select. The ALIEN icon is the worst, since it ends the bonus game.
The 6th round of the ALIEN Hunt bonus game is the Air Lock Round. When you hit the "air lock" button, the alien is shot into space. Also, a money value is revealed, which is added to your bonus coin total.
ALIEN Video Slot Machines Review
"In space, no one can hear you scream," was was one of the taglines for the original release of Alien back in 1979. At the time, Alien was compared to Jaws in space. More accurately, Alien was compared to Halloween in space.
No one can forget the first time they watched the Alien mystery unravel, as it went from small parasite to hulking monster. Now, Alien has become a slot machine.
A slot machine seems to take the creepiness out of the movie franchise, but I guess Alien 4, which had Winona Ryder as an android and Sigourney Weaver as a wisecracking clone, probably took most of the creep factor out of these movies. Still, this is a fun game with good bonus games, so I won't rip on it too hard.
Another cool horror-themed slot machine game are the House of the Dead slot machine and Twilight Zone Slots from IGT. And another movie themed slot is Indiana Jones slots. And Money Mad Martians Slots is another game about aliens. Golden Dragon Slots isn't about aliens per se, but they are monsters. State Fair Slots is totally unrelated but really cool.
