The Walking Dead (TWD) has been portraying the world as we know it, collapsing and rebuilding, within a zombie apocalypse for over 12 years within 11 series on our TV screens. But as of April 2022, the television show came to an end, leaving fans with a zombie-shaped hole in their schedules. But fear not, because the undead world is continued over at an online casino, with The Walking Dead’s official slot game!
Follow us, if you dare, back into the apocalyptic world we know and love…
The Walking Dead
Set within the walls of Alexandria, with an eerie and intense soundtrack, join the fight against the walkers in a game comprised of five reels, three rows, and fifty pay lines, from just 0.10 coins to 500 coins per spin. With a maximum win of 2198x your bet up for grabs, simply match three or more symbols to start rolling in some wins.
Just like other online slot games, the TWD game is comprised of symbols playing homage to the theme of the game and, of course, the show itself. Symbols include those of playing cards Jack, Queen, King, and Ace, all adorned with weapons you would need to protect yourself within the apocalypse, as well as familiar faces spinning into play such as Negan, Michonne, Daryl, Carol, and Rick Grimes.
The game’s wild symbol is a walker’s hand reaching out and holding the words WILD, which when entered into play can substitute for all basic symbols, creating further winning match potential as well as paying up to 3x your bet when you land three or more on the reels. A symbol comprised of three shields is the scatter symbol, match three of these and unlock the Free Games feature. Gold coins hold cash values, and when six or more are found within the reels, they activate The Tower feature, where a key with a blue background adds more rows. During this, if a biohazard sign is matched, you’ll be in for a shot at bagging the Jackpot.
There are six bonus features to be unearthed within this slot, including free spins, shifting stacks of coins, wild reels, Wild Walker Wild Reel, coins, and multipliers. Not only are these up for grabs, but there are also two bonus game features available too – The Tower and Free Games.
The Tower Feature
When six or more coin symbols spin in to play anywhere on the reels, they’ll lock into place and award you three respins. When you press spin, all unlocked positions will spin within the reels. If new coins land, they’ll also lock into place, and your respin total will reset back to three.
If you spin in two key symbols, you unlock additional rows, with six of these waiting for you to discover:
Unlocking row seven will make your entire row hold a 2x multiplier, multiplying anything that lands on this line apart from the biohazard symbol. Unlocking row eight has the potential to multiply your coin value by 5x, and row nine will transform any coins that land within this row into biohazard symbols – remember, biohazard symbols create jackpot opportunities!
There are four jackpots available within The Tower;
- Grand Jackpot = 1000x your bet
- Major Jackpot = 200x your bet
- Minor Jackpot = 50x your bet
- Mini Jackpot = 20x your bet
Free Games Feature
To activate this feature, you’ll need to match three or more shield symbols anywhere on the reels. You’ll be awarded six free spins to play within one of five games available – which one you play will be determined by the spin of a wheel. Any time you land three or more shields within these games, you’ll receive an additional six free spins.
These five games include:
- The Horde
Each wild and coin symbol landing on reels two, three, and four will expand and fill the reels.
Wild and coin symbols landing in the middle three reels will be awarded random multipliers. These multipliers can be added together. Biohazards are not eligible for the multiplier.
When a full stack of coins land on the reels, respins begin. The free spins counter is frozen, and the stack of coins moves one position left with each respin. Three or more coins will activate The Tower feature. Respins end when the stack has moved off the reels.
- The Whisperers
Up to three reels can appear as special reels with graphics. These reels will only contain wilds and coins. Landing six or more coins will unlock The Tower feature.
- Wild Walkers
When a stack of wilds land anywhere on the reels, they become Wild Walkers, and respins begin. The Wild Walkers will move one position left until moving off the grid with each spin. Coins that land within the spins turn into wilds. If a stack of coins land, they turn into Wild Walkers. Landing six or more coins within a spin will activate The Tower feature.
