“Defend Earth from our extra-terrestrial enemies in this 5-reel 10-line slot that pays both ways! Blast Invaders with the laser cannon to turn them into multiplier wilds! Vaporise the UFO to win a re-spin with extra wilds! Keep winning to save the world in this arcade classic!”
Who would have thought it this time last year that 2016 would be the year of Playtech? But thanks to a few hefty kicks up the back side they have taken the online casino game world by storm this year and they don’t look to be slowing down at all. Next on their massive hit list for 2016 is a brilliant looking and highly original Space Invaders slot built in conjunction with the TAITO Corporation who brought us the original world famous classic arcade game Space Invaders way back in 1978. That was of course well before my time but such was it’s timeless appeal that it remained a popular staple of arcades across the world for a decade or more and goes down with Pacman and Pong in the top 10 arcade games of all time!

5-reel 10-line Slots
The objective of the Space Invaders slot is to obtain winning symbol combinations by spinning the reels.
To play the game:
- Click Continue on the entry screen so that you can be directed to the main game reels.
- The number of active paylines is permanently set at 10. Wins can form on any payline.
- For information on paylines, click Info and go to the Paylines page.
- There is a difference between the line bet and the total bet. The line bet shows how much is being bet on a single payline. The total bet shows how much is being bet in total on a single spin. Payouts shown in the paytable (on the Payouts screen) are multiplied by the line bet.
- Choose your bet by clicking + and – below the Line Bet field.

- To start an Auto Play session, you must first set several parameters:
- The number of Auto Play spins.
- A maximum overall loss limit. When this figure has been bet and lost in an Auto Play session, the session will end.

- When these parameters have been set, press “CONFIRM” to start the Auto Play session. You can also press the “EXIT” button to close the Auto Play selection screen.

- Clicking the Turbo Mode button switches on or off the Turbo Mode thus turning on or off some of the win animations and sounds, and making the reels spin faster or slower.
- Wins are calculated according to the paytable. Your win will equal your bet multiplied by the corresponding value according to the paytable.

- Payouts are listed on the Payouts screen. To find the possible win amount for any given symbol combination, the line bet must be multiplied by the payout.
- If 2 payline winning combinations occur on the same line, the higher of them is paid out. If more than 1 active payline has a winning combination, the winnings are accumulated.
- Winning combinations can start from the leftmost reel or rightmost reel, and the same symbol has to be on every consecutive reel.
Maximum Win Limit

Invaders Turn Wild
- The Cannon appears beneath the reels and may move to stop under a different reel during every spin.

- If there are Low Win (Invader) symbols above the Cannon they will turn into Wild symbols if this will create a win.
- The Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols.
- Multiple low win symbols can be turned into Wild symbols at the same time, provided that each of the symbols can create wins if converted into Wilds.
- The payouts of winning combinations featuring 2 or more WILD symbols will be doubled.
- The UFO may fly across the top of the reels during any spin.
- If the UFO and the Cannon align above and below the same reel the UFO feature will be triggered.
- When the feature is triggered, the triggering spin will end and any winnings will be awarded.
- The reels will then immediately re-spin for free.
- During this re-spin, Wild symbols will be distributed in random positions on the reels.
