Reptoids (Yggdrasil): Overview
The whole idea of slots from an operator perspective is to make money although providers such as Yggdrasil are quite good at giving you some entertainment and value at least - they rarely fail to amaze us in that area. But great looks isn't all that counts as we've come to learn, 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 narrative is a cross between 'Men in Black' and 'They live', featuring retro style symbols and buttons.
Reptoids (Yggdrasil): Features
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.
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. The detection panel in Free Spin mode displays the amount of Reptoids (high pay symbols) already detected There are no Scatter symbols in the Free Spin mode. Free Spins are played with the same bet and lines that activated them.
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.
Reptoids (Yggdrasil): Conclusion
Reptoids is a medium variance slot played with a 96.1% RTP. It accepts stakes from between 0.10 to 100€. It's a reasonably entertaining game with outstanding visuals that is going to be appreciated by the majority of players. Moreover, the game has a tendency to swing between a relaxing kind of vibe and thrilling action.
With that said, the base game is 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 repetitive after a while and the feature never quite won us over. Possibly, Yggdrasil could have left out the detector field in the base game to raise the excitement level even more in the bonus. All in all, Reptoids is a great production, but won't position itself in the top of the Yggdrasil tier. Reptoids is available across all Yggdrasil casinos, including Rizk and Guts.
