December 7, 2018

Science fiction is a popular genre in television and film. Many iconic creations have been the basis of branded video slots. One of these is The X-Files from Playtech. The X-Files is an American science fiction drama television series that originally aired from 1993 to 2002. The X-Files were the marginalized, unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena that were being investigated by FBI special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Looking at the popularity of the series, two feature films were also released based on The X-Files. This branded video slot is based on the 2008 movie The X-Files: I Want to Believe. It is available on desktop and mobile gaming platforms of all Playtech online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.

The X-Files is a 5x3 slot machine with 20 fixed paylines. The reels are set in an eerie and dark background with suspenseful audio. Mulder, Scully and the wild are the highest paying symbols that award 200 times the line bet for a combination of five symbols. Alien hand, torchlight and silhouette figures are the medium paying symbols. The usual playing card icons are the low paying symbols. The wild symbol is a multiplier that randomly takes values of 1x, 2x, 3x or 5x. In an innovative feature, the wild symbol appears in a rift in the reels. Winning combinations with multiple wilds result in the multiplier values being added. Five 5x multiplier wild symbols will result in a 25x multiplier being applied to the payout.

The UFO is the scatter symbol. Three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels triggers the Locking Rift free spins feature. Three scatter symbols trigger 7 free spins, four scatter symbols trigger 10 free spins and five scatter symbols trigger 20 free spins. The rifts landing on the reels will be held for the remaining free spins. Multiplier wild symbols are guaranteed to appear here in every free spin. The line payouts are on the lower side in The X-Files video slot. However, this is made up for in the free spins with the locked wild multipliers. The line bet ranges from $0.01 to $25.00. The maximum total bet per spin is $500.
