10-04-2022 – AvatarUX is a studio based in Malta and it has announced that it is debuting its new MultiPop mechanic through the new Zombie aPOPalypse game that they’ve launched just in time for Halloween.
Have you ever thought about what would happen if a swarm of brain-eating zombies invaded the earth? Then this slot gives you the answer.
Zombie aPOPalypse is a 4×5 slot with plenty of features to look forward to. The game has 2,048 ways to win and double-paying symbols, among the other interesting aspects.
Paytable and Symbols
The game features a high volatility range, and the RTP stands at 96%. However, Zombie aPOPalypse is exclusively available to partners with integrations. You can win up to 20,000x the bet, with the bet range varying between €0.2 and €40, meaning that all types of players can give this game a go.
Moreover, depending on the jurisdiction, you can go directly to the bonus round i.e. free spins by selecting or Buy Bonus for 100x your stake, or alternatively, you can activate the ante bet option which will increase the stake by about 25% and at the same time, which will double the possibility of activating free spins.
When it comes to symbols, Zombie aPOPalypse includes bloodies lock of hair mediums, a half-eaten face, equally disturbing quad of character symbols, football-holding hand, and blood-dripping A, K and Q royal low pays.
All these symbols are grouped into three categories. The first is the high-value icons that range with payouts from 0.75x to 2x the bet. The second set of icons are the medium-paying ones, which pay up to 0.5x for five of a kind, Finally, the third set of symbols are the low-paying ones worth between 0.1x to 0.4x the bet for landing three to five symbols of a kind on adjacent reels in any position.
How Does the MultiPop Mechanism Work?
This mechanism works by locking the multiplier on every position that contains winning symbols. The last symbols will be removed and replaced, but the multiplier will remain on the reel and increase by +1 for each subsequent win up to 5x in the base game.
If a cell happens to reach x5 during the base game, then the infectious multipliers are activated. Moreover, 5, 10, 12, and 15 free spins can be triggered in the base game by landing 3, 4, and 5 brains Scatter symbols individually.
This mechanism shows us that the game grid can grow up to 5×5 in size and have 6,250 ways to win.
Finally, individual cell multipliers will not reset between free spins, meaning they can max out at x50. Each of the reels is filled with multipliers whereby the game awards +2 extra free spins.
A Gambling Wheel
Players can increase the number of free spins by spinning the gambling wheel before they enter the bonus mode. So, the winning spin awards more spins with 6,250 ways to win on each level. In case you lose the dice then you will be taken back to the base game without playing the free spins.
