Far from scary, Zombie Hoard slot is tongue in cheek in its design. The game's graphics have an almost cartoony feel to them, and the accompanying sound effects certainly won’t make your blood curdle. The reels, which are a plain black colour, sit on top of a gloomy night scene. On the reels, you have lower value playing card symbols of 10, J, Q, K and A. With the varying zombie making up the higher value symbols.
The game is a Microgaming slot title, but one which was created by Slingshot Studios. Slingshot studios are an independent games developer, working out of the Isle of Man, that develop exclusive multi-platform titles for Microgaming, this includes the Zombie Hoard slot mobile version and desktop version.
Zombie Hoard slot is a five-reel, three-row game, that comes with just nine fixed paylines. All nine of these paylines remain active on every spin. Playing Zombie Hoard will cost a minimum of 9p a spin, with a maximum bet of £45 per spin. The top prize on offer is 1,000 coins.
The key to any successful strategy is maximising return. This is done on Zombie Hoard by varying betting amounts, with the more you wager the higher your potential return potential.
Zombie Hoard logo symbol is the games wild. This wild symbol not only creates its own high paying combinations when three, four or five lands on a payline, it also can help complete other symbols’ combinations too. It does this by landing and substituting for all but the scatter symbol when required to complete a combination. During the base game, it will also be stacked on reels three and four increasing the potential for it to complete combinations.
The main bonus is the free spins, which can be triggered in two ways. Firstly, by collecting tokens by landing low-value symbols with tokens attached. This is called the free spins stash. Each token is worth one free spin, once thirty is reached, the spins are triggered.
The other route to the free spins is by landing three or more of the scatter brain symbols. Once triggered you will play with the number of spins in your free spins stash. During the spins, the wilds are stacked across all five reels and a 2x multiplier added to any wins.
Zombie Hoard is a basic looking slot game in terms of design, with the cartoony creation less scary and instead more graphically comical. However, what it lacks in the way of scare factor, it makes up for in potential wow factor during the free spins, with five stacked wilds able to create fantastic winning payout opportunities.
