Fans can often feel a little conflicted over contemporary games. On one hand the graphics, video content and sheer quality of modern slots can be absolutely amazing. But on the other hand, many players over a certain age do lament a time where video games (not just slots) were a whole lot simpler. These are the fans who will utterly adore Arcader.
The Arcader video slot has five reels and fifteen paylines. It is playable from 20p to £100 per spin.
This Thunderkick Games-powered slot has a really cool retro feel to it. If you started out playing on computers such as the Commodore 64 back in the ‘80s then you’ll be reminded of what video games looked like during your childhood. The graphics feature pixellated fruits, bars, numbers and letters and the text is displayed in a retro font. All of this is complemented by a synthesiser soundtrack. However, don’t let the nostalgia fool you too much. Arcader comes fully loaded with a host of contemporary features including free spins, multipliers and expanding sticky wilds.
Free Spins Round
Landing three or more of the bonus symbols activates the free spins round. Here you’ll be given nine free spins with a multiplier applied, depending on how many bonus symbols triggered the round. Three bonus symbols will bag you a 1x multiplier, while you’ll receive 3x for four symbols and an impressive 9x multiplier for five bonus symbols. During the free spins, any wild that lands on the middle three reels will become sticky, remaining there for the rest of your free spins.
Keep your eyes peeled for the ‘M’ symbols appearing on the reels. Getting three or more of these triggers the Mystery Game feature where you’ll be asked to pick from 15 boxes until you come across on ‘X’ symbol. Each box holds a cash amount and, depending on how many ‘M’ symbols you landed to trigger the feature, you’ll be treated to a multiplier of up to 6x. When you find the ‘X’ box the feature will end.
Arcader is bound to appeal to people over a certain age but its bright colours, cute graphics and decent bonus rounds are sure to make this slot a hit with players of all ages. Great fun.
