Game developer: Habanero
Number of reels: 5 reels
Unlike its most online pokies games, which offer joyful themes, The Dead Escape free online pokies game by Habanero takes on an unusual theme for the company. Set in an apocalyptic future, this action-packed game is all about zombies.
We do not have evidence of what happened, but one thing is certain: the dead walk the earth and only a few escaped. But how are you going to escape this plague? Help the survivors reach safety and get rewarded with great wins.
The setting in found in what used to be a city full of life, but now all you can find there is junk. And you can see that from the elements in the background. The reels are centred to the screen and look like a gateway into the city. The rusty metallic doors barely hold out the dead, and some even managed to stick their hands inside.
The 5×3 layout of the game is set on the metallic gates, and both survivors and zombies fill the reels. There are also hazard signs and playing card symbols, created to adhere to the theme.
Before starting to play this game, you need to adjust its settings to your liking and gameplay. And you can do so with the help of the control buttons found under the reels. The game develops a total of 30 fixed pay lines, but you can set your coin value between 1 cent and 20 dollars, a diverse range which we are sure is going to be appealing to all types of players. You can also choose between 1 and 10 coins to wager per each spin, adding up to a total bet of 6.000 dollars.
And you can even use the max bet button to maximise your wager instantly, skipping scrolling through the game’s settings. The autoplay feature is available for your convenience if you’d like to sit back and relax, while the game spins the reels for you.
There are 10 standard symbols in The Dead Escape free online pokies game. The highest paying one is the man, rewarding you with 100 coins for 5 of-a-kind. Next in line is the girl, which pays the same. The hazard sign rewards you with 60 coins for 5 of-a-kind, while the zombie’s hand pays 40 coins tops.
The playing card symbols are the lower-paying ones, and they are available from Ace to 9. The top prize offered by these symbols is 20 coins, and that is for the Ace.
The wild icon is the zombie, and it acts as a substitute for all other regular icons to help you complete winning combinations. It also pays by itself, offering 100 coins for 5 of-a-kind, but it only lands on reels 1, 3 and 5 in the base game.
The scatter is the truck, rewarding you with 300 coins tops. 3 or more scatters trigger the free spins bonus game and reward you with 15 free spins. During this bonus game, a canister symbol will appear and for each and every cannister anywhere on the reels, 1 free game is awarded.
The duel feature can be triggered in the base game or during the free spins. The duel is triggered when either a man or a girl symbol appears directly adjacent to a zombie icon, on the same row. A coin will spin to reveal the result of the duel, and you might get the ‘dead’ or the ‘escape’ results. The ‘dead’ makes the man or the girl icons to be replaced by the zombie icon, and additional duel can be triggered by the replaced zombie icon. If the result is ‘escape’, the zombie icon will expand into a wild which covers the entire reels and no further dues can be triggered by it.
