Aliens have invaded the earth and cloned a farmyard full of animals, Yes, that’s the surreal back story to the rather bonkers Tractor Beam, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Nolimit City. On any spin you could see stacks of cloned animal symbols appear or see all the lower value symbols removed from play. There’s also a bonus round that awards free spins. Play this extremely volatile game on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.
There’s a cartoon feel to the design in Tractor Beam. Set against a rural American backdrop, you’ll see lower value royal symbols etched onto planks of wood. They’re joined by the higher paying animals. In order of value are the chicken, sheep, pig and cow. Land 3, 4 or 5 of the latter in combination and you’ll pocket a payout equal to 0.75, 5 or 15 times your total stake. Those same amounts are on offer from the wild that replaces all the standard symbols and appear on all 5 reels. Tractor Beam comes with 3 extras.
Clone Attack! feature - this can trigger at random on any spin. At least 1 but possibly 2, 3 or even 4 reels will be filled with stacks of the same higher value animal symbol.
Beam ‘Em Up feature - also activated at random, this feature removes all the lower value symbols from play. You’ll then complete the spin with the reels including just higher value animals symbols and wilds in play.
Abduction Spins feature - land 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the same spin and you’ll receive 7, 9 or 12 free spins. Land a winner and that symbol is abducted from the reels and removed from play from the rest of the feature. Each time a scatter lands, 1 extra free spin is added to your total. If all the standard symbols are abducted, you’ll be left with just wilds which can deliver some spectacular results.
This tale of alien animal abduction is a very strange one. It looks and sounds good though and the extras deliver plenty of variety. This is an extremely volatile slot too. We’re talking 10 out of 10 on the variance front – it has the payouts to match with maximum wins of 3,408 times your stake.
The features can be hard to land and really hit and miss when they do. If the aliens work their magic though, then Tractor Beam can deliver some memorable if slightly surreal action. If you like aliens, Yggdrasil Gaming’s Cazino Cosmos is recommended.
