Added: August 24, 2017
Cowboys & Aliens is an unusual branded online pokie from Playtech. It is based on the best-selling graphic novel of the same name. The plot recounts an alien invasion in 19th century. Three incongruent people get together to save a town from the aliens. Cowboys & Aliens has also been converted to a movie starring Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde that grossed over $170 million worldwide. You can play the video slot at online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.
The artwork in Cowboys & Aliens reflects the comic book format. It is a 9 paylines video pokie with high variance. The UFO is the wild symbol and it also awards the highest line payout of 10,000 coins. The other thematic symbols are the cowboy Zeke, the cowgirl Verity, the alien leader, the priest and the Indian. Winning combinations are formed with three or more like symbols on any adjacent reels, not necessarily starting from the first one. Frames from the comic book are run in the win animations.
Cowboys & Aliens is a feature rich video pokie. The Alien Weapon feature is triggered when the gun appears on reel 1. A random number of shots are fired by the gun turning up to four symbols on the other reels into wilds. The payouts are awarded only after the feature is completed. The Cowboys & Aliens logo awards scatter payouts when two or more appear anywhere on the reels. With three or more of these symbols you will also be awarded 8 free spins with Comic Strip Wilds. For every spin a rectangle is displayed on the reels. All symbols within this rectangle become wilds. The rectangle changes position with every spin.
The Alien Attack Bonus feature simulates the story of Cowboys & Aliens with awesome animations. It is triggered when the alien ship bonus symbol lands on reels 1 and 5 in the same spin. You have to select Zeke, Verity or the Indian to fight the aliens. Verity can use 20 lashes of the whip but has low accuracy. The Indian can use 12 arrows with medium accuracy. Zeke has six gun shots with high accuracy. You will be awarded benefits for each alien that your chosen hero can kill. These include cash bonuses, a 2 times payout multiplier and extra ammunition. The multiplier is applied to the cash bonuses awarded till that point. You can earn extra cash bonuses for killing all the aliens and for the unused ammunition.
