Reptoids are taking over the world and walk among us, unnoticed, in disguise!
…question is if it’s not your wallet that they are really after. All jokes aside, they whole idea of slots is after all to take your money but providers such as Yggdrasil are very good at giving you some entertainment at least. They rarely fail to amaze us in that area. But great looks isn’t everything that makes a game popular, something Merkur and Novomatics are good examples of. Let’s see how the game performs.
Reptoids is a Video Slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines oriented from left to right. The game has ten regular symbols that win if three or more are lined up in sequence on a payline, beginning from the leftmost position. The 6 high pay symbols are represented by human characters (undercover Reptoids). The 4 low pay symbols are different medals. There is also a Scatter symbol that pays scattered if 2 or more appear anywhere on the reels.
The concept behind the game is a cross between ‘Men in Black’ and ‘They live’. The slot is reminiscent of a 60’s slot machine with retro looking symbols and buttons.[table “24” not found /]
There is a detector frame that moves to random position each spin in the base game and in Free Spin mode. When any high pay symbol lands inside the detector frame, it along with all identical symbols on the reels change into wilds. When the Scatter symbol lands inside the detector frame, the Free Spin mode is triggered.
Free Spin mode
Landing a Scatter symbol inside of the detector frame in the base game triggers the Free Spin mode with 7 Free Spins.
In Free Spin mode, all high pay symbols that are changed into wilds by the detector frame remain wild until the end of the Free Spins.

There are no Scatter symbols in the Free Spin mode. Free Spins are played with the same bet and lines that activated them.
Extra Free Spins bonus
Changing every 2 High symbols into Wilds in the Free Spin mode awards 2 extra Free Spins. Up to 6 extra free spins can be awarded by changing all 6 High symbols into Wilds.
Hitting 2 or more Scatter symbols anywhere in the base game awards a coin prize:
- 2 Scatters = 200 coins
- 3 Scatters = 2000 coins
- 4 Scatters = 20000 coins
- 5 Scatters = 100000 coins
If one of the Scatter symbols lands inside of the detector field, it pays first and then triggers the Free Spin mode.

Reptoids is a medium variance slot with an RTP of 96.1%. Bet size range from 0.10 t0 100 Euros.
This is a fun and great looking game for sure and it’s going to be appreciated by many players we have no doubt. It’s relaxing to play while at the same time raising your heart level when that bonus scatter lands in the Alien detector field.
But at the same time, the base game seems a bit too relaxing for our taste and there’s really not much going on except for that detector field flying around on the screen. It becomes a bit too repetative after a while and the feature really never won us over. In the bonus however this feature works great. Maybe they could have left out the detector field in the base game to raise the excitement level even more in the bonus.
So all in all a great production, but won’t struggle itself up to the top with some of the more classic Yggdrasil games such as Cazino Zeppelin, Nirvana or Vikings.
