There are many of us who love retro games such as Tetris and Space Raiders, so we can reminisce over simpler times. Boku Slots have discovered a fun slot game with a truly 80’s vibe called Arcader, which was designed by Thunderkick Games.
Arcader is a 5-reel 15 pay line slot that offers a mighty 96.10% RTP. Just in case the pixelated symbols hadn’t already won your heart, we are sure the RTP will.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Arcader begins at 10p per spin and can be increased up to a whopping £100 per spin, with lots of variants in between to suit all players’ needs and pockets.
Wild Symbol – Your wild is subtly depicted by the letter W and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter, mystery and expanding wilds. There is also a sticky wild which is a green W and this substitutes for all symbols, when the bonus game is in play.
Bonus Symbol – Otherwise known as the scatter, but during the game is called the bonus and is depicted by the letter B. Land 3 or more bonus symbols to trigger the bonus spin feature game.
Expander Symbol – This is another type of wild symbol which is shown as a kind of duo of triangles. When it lands on a reel and a win can be completed, it will expand to fill the reel and finish the winning pay line.
Mystery Symbol – As you are probably figuring out by now this game is relatively simple and the mystery symbol is depicted by the letter M. Land 3 or more of these and you will trigger the mystery feature game, which we will detail below. Land 4 or 5 of these and you will also receive a 2x or 6x multiplier for the win as well.
Bonus Spins Feature – To trigger this you need 3 or more bonus symbols, you will be awarded with a set amount of bonus spins and a multiplier for the duration of those spins. Here you will also stand the chance of triggering the sticky wilds as well.
- 3 bonus symbols = 9 spins + x1 multiplier,
- 4 bonus symbols = 9 spins + x3 multiplier,
- 5 bonus symbols = 9 spins + x9 multiplier.
Mystery Game Feature – Land 3 or more of the mystery symbol to trigger this game and also the chance of a 2x or 6x multiplier. When the game is activated you will be given the choice of different symbols. You simply click on the symbols until you find the red X which will end the game. Each symbol is worth a cash amount, so when you find the X the round is over and your win is allocated to your balance.
We fell for Arcader as soon as we saw the pixelated symbols, because it took us back to our old console playing days. There is a slightly tinny theme tune played throughout and that robotic girly voiceover throwing random praises at you, really adds to the feel of a 80s arcade game. In all the game is really well designed and will attract a wide range of players. But when you add in the great RTP and the featured bonuses, then you really are on to a winner. All the fun of the 80’s and none of the bad fashion sense, what’s not to love?
