Mancala Gaming has accidentally raised the dead in its Braindead slot. The game focuses on a zombie apocalypse, with the main characters being the heroes fighting for survival in an abandoned house. The slot is definitely much more Shaun of the Dead than Dawn of the Dead, injecting some humorous touches to what would traditionally be a bleak situation. The game also has some interesting bonus features. Let’s take a more in-depth look at everything on offer in this Braindead slot review.
The Braindead slot game is really well-designed and boasts some top graphics and nice visual touches. The gameplay is also kept nice and simple, which is something that is going to appeal to players. As you can see from the Braindead demo version we have provided, there is an in-game currency for the demo where the minimum bet is 1 DEM per line and the maximum is 90 DEM per line.
The action unfolds on a standard 5x3 grid and there are 25 active paylines for each spin. All of theAll the standard features of a slot including a fast mode and autoplay are also present and correct.
The character design in Braindead video slot is very solid, with all the characters appearing as symbols on the reels. The highest-paying symbol in the game is the female fighter. She pays 16x your total stake for combos of five, 3x for four, and 1x for three. Two zombies follow this, with a female zombie paying 14x for five, and a male one paying 10x.
The male fighter and a zombie dog are next, both paying out 8x for five. The final four symbols are all the card suits and they all pay the same. For combinations of five, they pay 4.8x your stake, 0.6x for four, and 0.2x for three.
There are several useful Braindead bonus features that players can take advantage of. The least interesting, but still useful, of the bonuses is the arrow symbol that will nudge the reels down until it disappears. This can help create more winning combinations if you’re lucky.
The Braindead free spins are triggered in an unusual way. Instead of landing scatter symbols, players will be offered free spins when they are on a losing streak. A bar at the top of the screen fills with sludge and keeps count of how many consecutive losses you’ve scored. Once you have scored three losses, you can claim one free spin. The number of free spins will then continue to increase if you don’t use them. 10 straight losses will give you 250 free spins. Be aware though, if you don’t cash in and use them and then you land a winning spin, they will reset to zero.
The other main bonus in the game is a bonus round which is triggered when you land three of the dice symbols on the reels. This will launch a mini-game that resembles a board game, giving you five spins of your dice. This will give you chances to double and quadruple your money. If you land four or five dice symbols, you will get a shot at securing a bonus or mega bonus payout.
The Braindead RTP is listed by Mancala Gaming as 95%, which is not too inspiring. There is no volatility information available for the game. When we played the game for this Braindead slot review, we found that we were able to score plenty of small wins, with the free spins mechanic never getting anywhere close to the 10 consecutive loss mark. The game's volatility, according to the provider, is very high.
