Aliens Slot Game


Aliens Slots REVIEW

The cinema has come to the slots scene yet again, this time in the form of NetEnt’s five-reel, 15 payline Aliens, based on the film of the same name. Play Aliens slot game and spin to win alongside some extraterrestrial beings.

Land winning combinations of chilling symbols to secure cash winnings and more! Enjoy plenty of sci-fi action with a hint of horror with this officially licensed slot game.


When you launch NetEnt’s Aliens slot, you’ll instantly notice that it’s officially licensed and that will be due to the use of film images and the overall design. You’ll feel fully immersed in the Aliens slot game thanks to the real-time animations that this uses throughout.

You can land various frightening combinations of symbols in order to receive a winning payout, including the Aliens that gave the film and slot its name, both in full form and as eggs, pre-hatching. The latter of these make up the game’s lower value symbols, meaning landing combinations of these will pay out less.

The higher value symbols are represented by five fully grown aliens. They each come with a different coloured border around them; land red, yellow, green, blue and a slightly bluish grey.

Aside from the symbols, the overall design of the game, including the background and area surrounding the reels, is excellent. The sci-fi theme is evident with the neon blue lights and background that appears to be a combination of space and desolate land.

How to Play

Before you play Aliens and spin to win for some cash sums, you’ll need to decide on your stake per spin. As is usually the case with NetEnt slots, there are a few factors you’ll need to take into account and choose.

The first thing to take into account is the coin size, or coin value, that you’d like to play with. The lowest coin size you can play with is 1p, while the highest value is £2. You cannot play with any amount in between these two, but there are a few options available.

Because all 15 paylines are fixed, you won’t need to select the amount that you’d like to activate. This means on every spin you’ll have the chance to land symbol combinations in 15 different ways.

NetEnt slots also feature ‘Levels’, which effectively refers to how many coins you’d like to play with per line. There are 10 levels to choose from and you can play on any number of them, although depending on which one you do choose, your total stake will be affected.

So your total stake is your coin value multiplied by 15, the number of paylines in total. This amount is then multiplied by whichever level you’re playing on. So, if you’re wagering with a coin size of 10p and on level 5, your total stake will be £7.50.

How To Win

To win cash prizes when playing Aliens from NetEnt, you’ll need to land three or more symbols across a payline, consecutively from left to right.

As mentioned, the amount you’ll receive for a combination is depending on which symbol it is and of course how many you land. They vary in value so some can payout substantially more than others, even if the same amount is landed.

The standard symbol with the highest value is the red alien, paying out an out-of-this-world 1000x your coin size if you land five of them across all reels on a payline.

Aside from standard symbols, there is one special one and that is the Weyland-Yutani wild. This symbol will substitute for all others in order to help create a winning combination where possible. Plus, it’ll only substitute for the highest possible winning combination on a bet line.

Bonus Features

Level 1: The Search

When playing Aliens, there’s a three-part bonus feature that plays like an arcade-style game. To trigger it, you’ll need to fill up the multiplier meter which is located above the reels. After each win, the meter will fill up a bit more, by as many symbols that were part of the winning combinations. Wilds are not included.

Level 2: The Encounter

During the second level of the bonus feature, you will take on the perspective of a marine navigating down a dark corridor. You’ll need to shoot the aliens that confront you. After each spin within this round, you’re rewarded with a guaranteed win and you’ll shoot some more aliens. Your ammunition can run out and ideally you’ll collect some from dead marines, although this isn’t always the case. If you run out of ammo before reaching the end of the multiplier, the round ends.

Level 3: The Hive

On the final level, you’ll be presented with two horizontal reels, another with grenade strength and also a grenade multiplier. You’ll then get five spins and with each, a grenade will be thrown at the Hive. You’ll do more damage to the Hive if the combination of grenade strength and a multiplier is higher. You’ll also fire a gun with four ammo clips, but when you run out the round will end.


Based on the popular Sci-Fi/Horror franchise, Aliens casts you to a dark and foreign planet in pursuit of the repulsive Geiger creations. The game is highly unconventional for a slot and is divided into three levels. While the first level, The Search, is standard slots fare, other levels see you attacking waves of aliens. Particularly on these latter levels, the graphics are rather unsettling, and the atmosphere is dark.

Aliens also has a very clear narrative, helping you become even more immersed in what increasingly becomes a film/slot game hybrid. It's not really like any other we've tried, but for a slot that mixes in arcade elements as well, this is a highly involving title that leaves you feeling thoroughly satisfied.
