Usually when we play a horror-themed online slot game, the result is a little less horrifying than expected (no matter how enjoyable the game may be). Imagine our surprise when we delved into Dead World – the latest online slots game from NYX Gaming – which is zombie-themed and actually pretty gory and frightful. Zombies are incredibly on-trend right now, and this slot game doesn’t hold back when it comes to gruesome design and special effects. Designed in comic-book style, there are terrifying zombie characters galore, survivors and spatters of blood. There are 5 reels, 3 rows and 50 fixed pay lines, plus a thrilling bonus game to claw your way into…if you dare…
The ghastly reels of Dead World display a range of gruesome characters including both zombies and survivors. There are 10 in total and one of these is a skeleton symbol, which is the highest paying icon. Whenever a winning combination occurs, you’ll soon know about it as fresh blood is spattered across the prize-winning pay line. We told you they didn’t hold back on the gore!
The wild symbol is a female zombie and she kindly substitutes all other symbols but the bonus. The bonus is a different female zombie; this one leads you to the Dead World bonus round.
Landing 3 or more of the zombie bonus symbols anywhere in view will trigger the Dead World bonus game. You’ll be presented with a selection of frightening zombie characters and your aim, of course, is to survive. To do this, you must shoot them, winning cash prizes as you shoot successfully. It’s an enjoyable bonus game and one that seems to be pretty easy to trigger.
Dead World both shocks and impresses with its brutal, well-designed theme. After all, if you want to play a zombie-style game, you’re going to want it to be gruesome and gory. The special effects are delivered well and the bonus game is a great addition to the already entertaining base game, so we’d say you should try this out – especially with Halloween just around the corner!
