Playtech’s X-Files Slot is a homage to the 90’s American cult TV series which was based on two federal agents in a secret government department investigating cases where the unexplained and paranormal were at play.
The X-Files was goose bumps all the way and now this cult TV show has been morphed into a slot game.
Look and Feel
The X-Files Slot is a mash up of the TV show mixed with images designed to unsettle and keep you guessing. This is a game where you’ll feel a chill and thrill as you spin.
It’s set in a dark woodland scene with indistinct shapes and shadows. The reels are transparent to make sure you’re soaking up the atmosphere.
Just like the TV show, the music is great – but sadly it’s not the iconic theme music.
X-Files Slot Game Play
X-Factor is 5 reel, 3 rows and 20 pay-lines slot that can be played across all devices.
The high value icons are the investigating duo Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson). If you can land five of these partners, you will cash in with a x10 your stake win. The other high value icons are the duo’s silhouettes, a Martian hand with long fingers and a torch.
The lower value icons of play are the Ace through Jack of the card deck in the TV show branding.
The Scatter is an alien space ship with the immortal phrase ‘I Want to Believe’! Look out for that one!
Multiplier Wild Symbols feature
The game has unusual Wilds in the form of a secret set of Multiplier Wilds which sub for all icons except the Scatter, and come in x1, x2, x3 and x5 value.
If you’re lucky enough to land more than one multiplier Wild in a winning combo then these Wilds can be combined to make some big multipliers- 5 of the x5 could make a x25 multiplier for example.
Locking Rift Free Games Feature
Land the spaceship Scatter on reels 3, 4 and 5 and you will get 7, 10 or 20 free spins respectively. Strange things called rifts or gaps appear during this feature and they lock in place to reveal another set of secret numbers beneath parts of the reels through which multiplier Wilds appear.
These rifts bring a multiplier of up to x 5 to a pay-line and the multiplier Wilds are in action during this feature.
The X-Files Slot Game has a retro feel and with those multiplier Wilds it’s worth a spin.
For any fans of the 90’s cult TV show, this slot is good entertainment. It’s definitely a game with character – and a bit of a ‘there’s something out there vibe’!
