Arrival is one of the most entertaining video slots ever to be released by BetSoft Gaming. If you ever saw the film Mars Attacks, or are familiar with the trading cards of the same name, you will know what to expect from this game. Green aliens with ridiculously big brains are trying to take over the world, and they have a captive. It is up to a macho marine to save his lady from peril. It’s all very tongue-in-cheek stuff in this 3D slot machine.
Arrival is not the most flexible slot to wager on, purely because the coin values start out at 2p, and can rise as high as £1 – there is no 1p per line cushion, then. Arrival does allow you to alter the 30 lines on its 5 reels, and players can wager up to 5 coins per line. All of this points towards a wagering range which stems from a low of 2p per line, per spin, up to a high of £150 a spin.
Arrival contains a non-progressive jackpot, which is pegged at 2,000 coins. Players will need to hope they get 5 marine symbols on the reels to bag this prize. However, given the extensive features and multipliers in this slot, you could very well walk away with larger cash prizes on the whole.
Wild symbols are not directly present in the base game, although they can appear in Arrival when players land 3 or more aliens on the reels. This will trigger a free spins bonus round, during which a UFO will hover above a reel, making it entirely wild.
Landing 3 or more ray gun symbols on the reels will trigger a UFO Click Me feature. In this bonus, players can select one of 3 UFOs which appear on the screen. They will rewarded with a cash prize based on their selection. Players can keep selecting UFOs to win cash prizes until a collect symbols appears. It is possible to win quite a lot of money with this feature.
Save the Girl Bonus
The main special feature in Arrival is the Save the Girl bonus. It is triggered by landing 3 girl icons on the reels. Once the bonus has been activated, players can can use the buttons on a keypad to unlock the laser beams holding the girl captive. Players will pocket prizes for unlocking the beams, and one all four laser beams have been unlocked, the girl is saved, the alien defeated, and the bonus ends. Players do not tend to win as much with this feature as they do with the UFO Click Me bonus, particularly when playing with big stakes.
Despite it costing a little bit more than you are perhaps used to spending, BetSoft Gaming’s Arrival is a simply wonderful video slot. It is quirky, comedic, and actually coughs up the goods rather frequently. There aren’t too many BetSoft Gaming developed slots which are as generous with their winnings as this 3D game, despite it’s relatively low RTP.
