Disaster scenarios and post-apocalyptic type situations have made for great television shows, movies, books and other forms of media. One of the more common scenarios from this genre is about a zombie outbreak of some type where people become the undead, and The Dead Escape by Habanero Systems is all about what would happen in such a scenario. Everything is about trying to get out of the infected area, and the graphics, sound and gameplay all come together to present a cohesive experience along these lines.
Layout of the Slot
The way this game is laid out is about as usual as you can get, and it has five reels with three rows. It does have 30 paylines, which isn't the most common number, but it's still not rare by any means. Betting is based on a combination of coins per payline and different numbers of coins, so you can bet with up to 10 coins on each payline for a total of 300 coins per spin. The smallest coin size is just $0.01, leading to a bet size of $0.30 as the minimum. Likewise, the maximum coin value is $0.50 with a maximum bet size of $150.
Scatters and Free Spins
The scatter symbol in this game is the truck symbol, and the entire point of the game is to try to make it to your truck to escape a slew of zombies. Five of a kind is worth 50 times your total wager, and that's like a line bet win of 1,500x. This is the largest normal payout in the game, so it's easy to see why the truck symbol is so important. You can also get 10 times your total wager for four of a kind. Three of the truck will get you 3x. You can win with these symbols located anywhere on the reels, even if they don't go from left to right.
The free spins feature in this game is also based on the truck scatters. You need to get three or more to trigger the feature, and it will give you 15 free spins with a chance to win additional free turns. There is a red jug of fuel that will show up on the reels occasionally, and each jug gives you an additional free spin. This is a cool way of extending the feature that makes a lot of sense and that fits the overall theme of the game perfectly.
Wild Zombies and Stacked Wilds
The zombie is the wild symbol in this game, but there's also a stacked wild of a bunch of zombies coming through a wall that you can get as well. Wilds only show up on the first, third and fifth reels in the regular game, but they appear on all reels during the free spins. The wins for the wilds are 500x for five, 150x for four and 50x for three of a kind.
Fight a Zombie
If one of the two human characters line up directly adjacent to a zombie horizontally, it triggers the duel feature, which gives you a chance in a fight against a zombie. If you lose the fight, the human turns into a wild. However, if you win the fight, then the zombie wild expands to cover the whole reel. You can get multiple duels on the same spin as well, so you could end up with multiple stacked wilds or extra wilds on the reels. This feature is active during the regular game and during the free spins.
Payouts and Winnings
There's a progressive jackpot that you can win at random in this game. You don't need a particular winning combination to get it, and you can win it with a wager of any size.
The man and the girl each pay 500x if you get five of one of them on a payline. You can also score 300x for five of the warning symbol or 200x for five of the hand coming through the ground. The card rank symbols pay 100x for five of the A and 75x for five of the K. Five of the Q, J, 10 or 9 all pay 50x.
Zombie games usually get a lot of attention because we have some kind of fascination with them, and The Dead Escape by Habanero Systems is no exception. The combination of features, especially those that show up in regular gameplay, along with a good soundtrack and appealing graphics help to create an overall experience for players that they enjoy. It's also the case that they can pick up random wins with the progressive that will definitely make their day. Add that to the 1,500x top static jackpot and the wild features, and it's clear that there are plenty of ways to take down sizable wins in this game.
