Attention! Try and save the world from galactic overlord Supreme Commander Zarglebarg, High Ruler of the Gamblon Empire and win a big win in the process in Independence Pay. This Odobo-powered, military-themed slot is a 5 reel, 25 payline affair that comes with a bonus feature that offers between 8 and 20 free spins with up to 15 randomly added wilds. Available across all devices, protect the world from alien invasion from between 25p and £25 per spin.
Owing more than a hint to a film that has a very similar title, Independence Pay imagines a day when the world is invaded by aliens – symbols on the reels include newspapers, computer monitors, tanks, helicopters, planes and ships as well as a trio of military personnel bearing the unlikely names of Dr Bambi Silverheart, Buck Gordon and General Goldheart!
The General is the top payer, awarding 500 times your line bet for a 5 symbol combo. The little green alien is the game’s wild, substituting for everything apart from the scatter – it too offers payouts of up to 500 coins per payline.
The orange UFO is the scatter – land 3, 4 or 5 of these to trigger the Free Spins feature and with it 8, 12 or 20 free spins (respectively). These are played out on a new set of reels set after an alien invasion has taken place. After each free spin has played out, a random selection of symbols will be replaced by a selection of wilds. This will be at least 2 but can reach 15 if you’re really lucky. A new payout is made with the extra wilds in position.
Like many slots on the Odobo platform, Independence Pay looks and sounds a treat. The graphics have a B-movie feel and are superbly done. Likewise, the stirring military style soundtrack, complete with whirring alien style sound effects.
The features don’t quite match the stunning visuals but there’s still plenty to enjoy here, especially the bonus feature where the extra wilds on offer following the free spins can quickly get the cashier flowing – we found Independence Pay to be a medium variance slot.
There’s a certain cheesiness to Independence Pay but in this case that’s no bad thing – the tongue in cheek visuals work well and the features, though limited, do offer some decent opportunities. Get lucky with those wilds and these alien invaders can certainly make Independence Pay. If you like the theme, WMS Gaming’s Invaders from the Planet Moolah is very good – you also have the branded Aliens slot from NetEnt.
