Unfortunately, Zombie Hoard is no longer available as a real play game. Have you tried Dead World?
As anyone who knows this slot-loving wombat will confirm, I’m a pretty tough cookie, so Microgaming and Slingshot’s Zombie Hoard slot was something that I knew I could take in my stride.
Having taken a look at the game, the whacking great 107,500 coins pay out potential did make me feel pretty brave. This game is in the friendly ghoulish area in any case, a bit like the Monster Madness slot which I have also been playing.
These joint ventures from Microgaming and the smaller designer studios are a real winner. Another one that is worth a try is the Book of Oz slot by Triple Edge Studios.
This crazy creeptastic slot has been made with some clever folk at Slingshot Studios and features the most acceptable zombies this creature has ever seen.
Look and Feel
The Zombie Hoard slot is in a comic style with cartoony contorted faces all disturbingly dressed nurses and hospital staff.
Despite the strange coloured skin, the bad teeth and the funny facial expressions-the reanimated corpses look slightly friendly (not in an about to eat you way). The quirkily cute undead to grace the reels of this game are your new pals! You can always set the mad scientist from the Mr Toxicus slot on them if you’re feeling worries, although he probably got them in that shape in the first place…
The background to the frame is a purple cityscape and around the edge of the reels are a menacing set of animated zombie arms groping for more victims! Luckily this wombat is a bit of a home body, I’m not sure the zombie hoards would be interested in this dusty old burrow.
Perched on top of the reels is a human brain. This well-balance organ provides a handy at a glance free spins metre, just to help you keep track of your play!
Zombie Hoard is played over 5 reels, 3 rows and 9 pay-lines. This is a game that looks smart on your mobile device or PC.
This game is appealing to gamers who are attracted to its lower bet limits, the top bet you can place is only for £45. This lower limit gives you a game that will prick the interest of the casual gambler.
There is a quartet of horrid zombies who are the high value icons of the game. The five high value icons of the card deck are the low scoring symbols of this undead slot.
The Wild is the game’s logo in goofy cartoony text and this icon substitutes for all icons except the Scatter. During the base game Wilds that land on reels 3 and 4 can become super stacked.
Zombie Hoard’s Scatter is, rather horribly, a human brain with the word “Scatter.”
Free Spins Game
There are two routes to getting the free spins feature underway.
All you need are a trio or more of Scatters to land on the reels and you can start your freebie spins. If you’re blessed with a strong stomach and good luck you’ll land five Scatters and gain a whopping 34 free spins. Maybe the zombie hoards are a generous crew (when they’re not nibbling on your rib cage!)
The other way to trigger your free spins game is collect 30 “tokens”. What I hear you ask are these tokens? The good news is as you land lower value symbols these come with tokens attached, each one of these represents a single free spin. If you can collect these to the value of 30 then you’ve found the other way into the bonus game.
A Wild that helpfully lands on the reels during this game will become super stacked. What does this mean for you? A whole lot more winning potential – imagine a whole frame, packed with cash making Wilds.
During this bonus round, all wins generated are doubled. Whooo-hoooo!
With an RTP of 95.29%, the Zombie Hoard slot is a medium variance horror show with some great appeal. This is a simple game with just some nice to have super stacked Wilds and a mighty generous free spins game. Despite the name, these unusual characters are just trying to friendly and help you to make a buck, I think…!
