Invaders Slots is a quirky little alien game with a lot of charm and limited faults. The graphics might not be for everyone, but there’s a nerd kid in everyone’s heart somewhere that can relate to a love of the weird and the green. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with it, mostly wishing that they had taken the theme a bit further because it seems like they were competent enough to do that. Still, that’s a minor gripe to an otherwise pretty good game. It’s not for everyone, but if you like space and weird stuff and Area 51 mythos, you’ll be having a blast with this slot long into the evening as your bank account grows big enough to abduct.
The premise of Invaders Slots is aliens and Area 51. It’s not quite X Files in its presentation, more like a kid’s take on things in a playful and accessible way. It’s kind wonky looking with a tongue in cheek kid’s aesthetic, but we still think it did a decent job of capturing why people like this sort of thing without making it overly serious. They walked a fine line and succeeded here.
Graphics in Invaders Slots are for the most part good. Everything is crisp, clear, colorful, and compelling to look at, which makes your time spent playing all the easier because of how easy they are on the eyes. The colors are so saturated and vivid that they’re fit for children, but the theme itself is intricate enough for adults to enjoy. Not that we imagine many kids playing this game.
It takes pretty much everything having to do with aliens and abduction and works it into the theme. Crop circles, planets, the creatures themselves, and Area 51. It’s a bit ham fisted about it and nothing is all that unique, but what they did have here comes together well enough to remain fun in a Saturday Morning Cartoon kind of way, only in somewhat 3d painted things.
Gameplay in Invaders Slots is fairly standard despite an extra terrestrial theme. At 5 reels and 20 pay lines, it does not break the mold there, chosing instead to keep things classy in ways we can respect.
Betting here ranges from two pennies to $1, making this an accessible slot that anyone can jump into in hopes of winning a lot of money without worrying about necessarily breaking the bank in the process. Max bets cap out at $100, which tends to be how we rolled when we played it a bunch for our review.
The bonus round here is called Abduct the Gold Bonus Round, which while okay is still like pretty much any other bonus round you’ve ever seen. Not that we’re complaining. We like money and bonuses. Please don’t nix that part!

Who is this Game For?
This game is suitable for players of all types. In particular, it should appeal to:
* Players new to digital slots and looking for something relatively accessible
* Moderate intensity players that have gotten their feet plenty wet in the online slots world and are looking for something a little more involved
* Jaded slot vets

* Players looking for slot nostalgia for the similarities and differences this slot has to other games
* People more used to normal video games that are looking to get their feet wet in the world of online slots
Who is the Game NOT For?
Although we enjoy this slot, it is not for everybody. In particular, it may not be your cup of tea if this describes you in any fashion:
* Averse to winning money online
* Looking for something truly innovative in the genre
* You find the theme in any way offputting
Is it Buggy?
In the time we spent playing this game, we did not encounter any bugs, problems, or errors. The same cannot be said for all slots of this genre, so we commend the developers for a job well done on that. We also encountered no issues in processing winnings or payments, and everything ran very smooth just like you would expect across many varied devices in a variety of ecosystems and operating systems.
Invaders Slots is your inner 12 year old conspiracy theorist’s dream, should that dream be boiled down and plastered over a slot game. It doesn’t blow you away in anything it does, but it tries hard enough and succeeds for the most part. It’s pretty average in most respects, sans the payouts, and if you really like the alien abduction mythos. If that sounds like you, you’re in for a treat. If not, you’ll still probably like it. It’s a fun game that pays you to play it. What’s not to like?
