Zombirthday Slot Review
Zombirthday will give you an invite to a party like no other. This 5 reel, 10 payline zombie-themed video slot from Playson offers a selection of presents including weird wilds, scary scatters, freaky free spins, manic multipliers and a gruesome gamble feature. Stakes range from 10p up to £100 per spin.
The Zombirthday reels are packed full of ghoulish cartoon-style creations including skulls, brains, dogs and zombies. They all have a slighty creepy birthday twist such as wearing a paper hat or brandishing birthday candles. The action is all set against a dark graveyard scene and accompanied by a Scooby Doo style soundtrack.
The green zombie acts as the wild, substituting for all other symbols apart from the scatter. All winning paylines that feature the wild are doubled. The wild is also the game’s biggest payer. Find a 5 symbol combination and you’ll be awarded 9,000 times your line bet. Even four will provide a 2,500x payout.
The Blue Lady acts as the scatter which is the key to triggering the Free Spins feature. Once active, you’ll be awarded 15 free spins. All wins during the free spins come with a 3x multiplier meaning that every win is trebled. Additional free spins can be re-triggered if the scatters reappear during the feature (giving you up to 30 free spins in total).
There’s also a chance to boost every win thanks to the Gamble feature which is available after every winning combination. It’s a pretty standard offering. Guess the correct colour of the next playing card to double, guess the suit to quadruple your win.
Zombirthday may not be as jammed with features as other horror-themed slots but there’s still plenty to enjoy. The pace of the gameplay is typically fast-paced, especially if you opt for autoplay. The variance is in the medium range offering a nice balance of payouts.
The visuals and backing track are well done and the action on the reels gallops along at a pace that will satisfy even the most ardent action junkies. Zombirthday is a bit of a strange celebration but with potential jackpots of 9,000 times your stake it’s a party you want to miss. If you like horror-themed slots, Full Moon Fortunes by Ash Gaming is very good as to is Immortal Romance by Microgaming and Blood Suckers by NetEnt.
