Arcader Slot

At first glance, the Arcader slot looks pretty basic. It’s themed on 80’s arcade games (they’ve nailed the eighties synth background music), so that’s the point I guess.

It’s only when you start playing this game that you realise what a cool little game this is. Every time you hit a feature, a female Android voice comes out with little pearls of wisdom like “Expansion”. “Great”. “Nice”. Classic!

It reminds us a bit of the Starburst slot – it just has that sort of arcade vibe (I guess it would have, with a name like that).

This is a Thunderkick game- the guys behind the Babushkas slot (another favourite of ours). You can play the free demo here.

Let’s look at the features in some more detail shall we?


Arcader Game Symbols

You’ll be looking at pixelated bar symbols, 7s, bells, melons, lemons, grapes oranges and lemons- all in true 80s arcade style. So traditional symbols, but with a retro twist that look pretty cool on the five-reel, three-row game. The whole design is made to look like one of those old stand-up space invader consoles. It isn’t as high-tech as games like the Taco Bros slot, but it’s quirky! Great!

There are 15 fixed pay-lines on the game and you change your total bet amount by clicking on the coin symbol. But it’s the feature symbols you’ll have the most fun with. Thunderkick knows how to entertain- just try their Esqueleto Explosivo slot game and you’ll understand what we mean.

There are wilds, expanders, mystery game symbols and bonus game symbols.

These symbols expand the reel they appear on and fill it with symbols that net you the highest win. Nice! They are the 2 triangles on top of each other


The bonus symbols are scatters (land them anywhere)- 3 or more trigger the bonus game for free spins. the are the green “B” symbols- pixelated, of course.

The number of free games and the multiplier that is applied depend on the pay table. On each free spin, you have the chance of landing a Sticky Wild on the middle three reels. They will anchor here during the entire bonus which can be nice for wins. The Sticky Wilds are the green W symbols.

– Five Bonus Symbols trigger nine free spins at a 9x multiplier.
– Four give you nine free spins at 4x.
– Three give you nine free spins at 1x multiplier.

If you get more Bonus Symbols in the free spins, your multiplier goes up.

Pros and Cons

  • Sticky Wilds on the re-spins.
  • The Mystery symbols trigger a pick ‘n win bonus.
  • Works very well on phones.
  • The design feels basic, but that’s the point I suppose as it is “retro”.

Mystery Symbol

Then there’s a Mystery Symbol which is another scatter. If you get three or more you are into the Mystery Game which is a click-and-win type game.

These are the pink M symbols. Keep revealing wins off the 5×3 Mystery grid until either you draw a blank or you reveal all of the wins behind the “?” Symbols.

– Five Mystery Symbols give you a 6x multiplier in the Mystery Game
– Four give you a x2 multiplier
– Three gives you a x1 multiplier.


The Blue W is the wild and will stand in for everything except for the Bonus Symbols and the Mystery Symbols to make up wins.


And that is the Arcader slot. We have to say, we almost shut this game down when we first saw it, because it doesn’t look like much when you first see it. But we loved it!
