Playtech Scatter Brains 2 Slot ReviewScatter Brains II is powered by Playtech and comes with 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Playable from 10p to £500 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, this zombie themed slot comes with free spins, roaming zombie wilds and 3x multipliers as well respins where zombie wilds replace picture symbols.

Visually, Scatter Brains II is rather simple and has cartoon style graphics – similar in style to Playtech’s Big Bear, you are taken to an abandoned street at night time. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q and J royals as well as 5 different characters each holding a weapon to protect themselves from the zombies – the man with the mohawk is the most valuable giving you 6 times your stake for 5 across a payline. There’s also the biological hazard warning sign which is the wild and substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter – 5 on a payline will give you 5 times your stake.

Scatter Brains II comes with a Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3 Scatters Brains logo scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 – your reward will be 5 free spins. Now, the scatter is replaced by the Feature wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols and awards a 3x multiplier when you a winning combination when a Zombie wild lands on it. These 3 Feature wilds will roam the reels and replace the symbol it lands on with a wild, except for feature wilds.

If a Zombie wild lands on a character, you will trigger the Respin feature where 1 respin of all 5 reels will occur. The Zombie wild will replace the character symbol for enhanced winning potential. Once the reel has been improved, only picture symbols and wilds will appear.

Scatter Brains II may be simple visually but it’s a medium to high variance slot which can be quite rewarding in the Free Spins feature – you can win up to 1,458 times your stake on each spin but the 3x multiplier from the Feature Wild can give you wins of up to 4,374 times your stake on every free spin.

Overall, Scatter Brains II is good but needs a few spins in demo mode to see what’s going on – don’t expect to trigger the Free Spins feature very often though but the 3x multiplier and roaming zombie wilds can pay dividends when you finally get in. If you like zombies though, Microgaming’s Lost Vegas is recommended.
