Playtech Cowboys And Aliens Extraordinary Online Slot

September 17, 2015

In Western folklore cowboys usually fight against bandits or Indians. Cowboys and Indians teaming up against aliens was a novel concept that Playtech developed as a branded online slot. The original creator was Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, whose Cowboys and Aliens tells the story of an alien invasion in 19th century in a comic book format. Platinum Studios holds the copyright for this and entered into the agreement with Playtech. Cowboys and Aliens is live at all Playtech online casinos such as Mansion Casino and Omni Casino.

The main symbols are characters from the original story. They include Zeke the cowboy, Verity the cowgirl, the Indian, the alien and the priest. Being a branded slot game, the win animations run frames from the comic book. The alien UFO is the wild symbol. The Cowboys and Aliens logo is the scatter symbol and awards scatter payouts. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons. In this Playtech slot game, winning combinations with three or more like symbols on any adjacent reels need not start from the first reel.

The Alien Weapon feature is triggered when the gun appears on reel 1. A random number of up to four shots are fired by the gun turning symbols on the other reels into wilds. The payouts are then awarded. The Cowboys and Aliens logo triggers 8 free spins with the Comic Strip Wilds feature. After every spin a rectangle appears on the reels. All symbols that fall within this rectangle become wilds for that spin. During the next spin the rectangle will randomly cover a different set of symbols. The most exciting feature in the Playtech Cowboys and Aliens slot game is the Alien Attack Bonus, which has awesome animations of the alien attack. This feature is triggered by the alien ship bonus symbol. You have to choose one from Zeke, Verity and the Indian to fight the aliens. Each character uses a different weapon having different effectiveness. Verity uses 20 lashes of the whip with low accuracy. The Indian uses 12 arrows with medium accuracy. Zeke uses six shots with the gun with high accuracy. You will be awarded a benefit for each alien killed. These include cash bonuses, a 2x multiplier and extra ammunition. The multiplier is applied to the cash amount won till that point. Extra cash bonuses are awarded if all the aliens are killed and for the ammunition not used.
