Toxic waste all over the street sets the tone grime for this 5 reel and 243 winning ways slot from Playtech. The simplicity of design will have you scratching your head in amazement, knowing that Playtech decided to keep the feel in the 90s and not do much to keep up with the trends. A deliberate decision? If so, it’s a stroke of a genius in charge of the creative team.
The simplistic, two-dimensional apparel, generic sounds mixed with a hip-hop jam cooling the atmosphere can be an acquired taste. Comic book background serves the theme well as you make your way through a set of symbols depicted by classic playing card symbols from J to A and Zombie-fighting group of young men and women roaming the streets.
The high value symbols come in two different forms – the human one and the zombie one, activated once a Zombie Wild lands on the normal symbol to give you a re-spin. More on it below. Mechanics-wise, Scatter Brains II is a simple game rewarding you for combinations of at least three matching symbols on a payline from left to right.
It’s a highly affordable game at €0.10 per spin but with the maximum amount standing at a whopping €500, you know it’s going to attract a wide audience. Holding the spin button will set off the AutoPlay mode while all other game controls are easily accessible from the main panel.
Zombie infested reels offer plenty of fun all generic game aficionados will enjoy. Doubters and modern-day slot lovers will be swayed into enjoying this Playtech pearl as much as any player thanks to Scater Brains II’s intriguing gameplay.
Respin Feature – the action starts from the base game whenever you get a Wild Zombie landing on one of the creature-killing characters. Zombie will infect your carefree hero and turn him (or her) into a walking dead bastard with an enhanced winning potential. Furthermore, the reels will be spun again for a complimentary respin and a chance to win some hefty prizes knowing that during that particular respin only character symbols and Wilds will appear.
Free Spins Feature – the main attraction of this Playtech title is triggered once you land three Scatter Brain Logos on reels two, three and four. Once the free games start, the Brain Scatter will be replaced with a Feature Wild symbol (basically a pulsating blood-red brain which substitutes all possible symbols on the reels and awards a 3x multiplier for all combinations made out of the Zombie infested symbols. What you get is 5 free spins and three roaming Zombie Wilds. Once they land on one of your main characters, you will get an additional free spin.
Simplistic games with powerful engines usually evolve into big-hit slot games. It’s hard to tell whether Scatter Brains II has the potential to develop into such a long-lasting game but it sure will offer some great fun – especially for the apocalypse theme fans.
Zombies can be an acquired taste but your stomach will be able to digest the winning potential of this medium to high volatility game. With a maximum stake per spin standing at €500 and a winning potential of 1,458x your stake, a simple calculus will tell you all there is to know about this game.
Scatter Brains II benefits from a base-game respin feature with Zombie Wilds turning regular characters into infected versions of themselves. It also houses a free spins feature with roaming wilds and a 3x multiplier which can give you plenty to scream about – and not just scary Zombies.
