About Little Green Men Nova Wilds
This slot’s title clearly signals what you might expect from its presentation, with a cartoon, 50s sci-fi feel reinforced by a groovy, theremin-powered soundtrack to your outer-space spins. Set in orbit around a mysterious planet, Little Green Men’s five reels are initially laced with twenty paylines to catch wins from their crew of nine regular symbols. Those comprise four Royals (J to A) as the lower ranks on the paytable, with a communicator, space helmet, ray gun, robot and the game’s logo the symbolic power source for the bigger wins. A Wild and Bonus Scatter add special powers to spins that bring them in, with the Wild capable of substituting for all but the Bonus Scatter to generate surprise conquests of the paytable.
Before I blast off into the bonus possibilities the Bonus Scatter can herald, the Little Green Men have some powers of reel modification they can randomly spring on any spin. Invading play in a suitably kitsch flying saucer, the occupant of that interplanetary craft can activate one of four reel modifications to boost your chances of landing a win. Three offer new Wild ways to win; one replacing three or more symbols on a row with Wilds, another fully colonising two or more reels with Wilds and the last dropping mega-sized blocks of Wilds into view.
The fourth intervention is a respin feature that also upgrades any symbols that have built a win on the spin that summoned up the Little Green Man in his reel-modifying UFO. Oh, and if that isn’t enough of a tantalizing prospect, every time a modification feature triggers there’s a chance it will also boot up a multiplier of between 2x and 25x to blast any wins into a much higher orbit.
Retuning my scanners to this game’s Bonus Scatters, you’ll find a close encounter with three or more is the ignition sequence for a round of free spins. Three Scatters in view counts down six free games, whilst four Scatters doubles that quota and five Scatters puts twenty-four free spins on the clock. Whichever free spins mission you launch into you’ll find big boosters powering up your chances. First the reels double in height to accommodate six symbols in view, secondly twenty more paylines are activated to rake in rewards and finally more frequent visitation from the Little Green Men means more reel modification can transform your fortunes! Space madness!
