Stakes Range: 5p to £500 per spin

RTP: 95.84%

Max Win: 2,192.6 x stake

The Walking Dead 2 slot benefits from 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 fixed paylines. Winning combinations must begin from the leftmost reel with 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols appearing on successive reels and on a payline.

Catering to all pockets, you can spin away from 5p to £500 per spin. Look out for the Bet icon next to the reels. Then use the plus and minus buttons to change your stake accordingly. All payouts in the Paytable appear corresponding to your bet which helps. Outside the UK, there’s a Turbo Mode for quicker spins and an Autoplay facility.

The Walking Dead 2 RTP is 95.84% which is marginally lower than the online slots average of 96%. It’s also just above the 95.73% offered in the original The Walking Dead slot. Compared to other branded slot games, the return rate is up there.

The volatility is in the medium bracket with the bigger payouts available in the various free spins features. The hit frequency rate is 26.5% meaning a win will land every 3.77 spins on average. The max win is 2,192.6 x your total bet which will come from the Coin Bonus Game feature. The max wins will be won, on average, every 1 billion spins.

Compatibility: Mobile, Tablet, Desktop

the-walking-dead-2-slot-base-game

The Walking Dead 2 slot is the second game based on The Walking Dead TV series after the original The Walking Dead slot. It’s based on 1 of the best TV series of all time. With a zombie apocalypse theme, the aim is to survive wave after wave of walker attacks with Daryl, Beth, Michonne, Negan and Rick.

Set in Alexandria, the first thing you’ll notice is the chilling soundtrack which is the same as the one used in the TV series. Symbols on the reels include low value A, K, Q, J and 10 royals. The high win symbols are represented by characters from the series. They include Daryl, Beth, Michonne, Negan and Rick Grimes. Like in the original slot, the Rick Grimes symbol is the highest paying with 3, 4 or 5 awarding 1, 8 or 20 x your total bet.

There is a walker hand wild symbol which substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. Like Rick Grimes, it pays up to 20 x your total stake. There is also a Wild Walker symbol which appears stacked on all reels. It also replaces all symbols bar the scatter. The Wild Walker can only appear during the Split Reel feature (more details below). The scatter is represented by the Chevrolet Chevy van and triggers various bonus features.

the-walking-dead-2-mobile-slot

All Playtech slots are created using HTML5 technology. The Walking Dead 2 is no different. This means you can join Rick Grimes and other survivors on laptop, PC, mobile and tablet devices. The high definition graphics work well on smartphones and the 5×3 layout is also perfect for mobile play.

The Walking Dead 2 Bonus Features

The Walking Dead 2 slot comes with more bonus features than you can shake a barbed baseball bat at (Negan’s Lucille if you’ve forgotten). With 6 bonus features, there are respins, 4 free spins features with various extras and fixed jackpots up to 1,000 x your total bet.

Split Reel feature

The Split Reel feature is triggered whenever you get a win during the base game. All reels from either reel 1, 2 or 3 shift 1 position to the right. The empty reel will then respin for free. If this results in a winning combination, another respin is awarded with the feature repeating. The respins continue until no new wins are created.

Finally, the Split Reel feature will trigger during the Multiplier Free Games and Super Stacked Free Games features. The free spins tally will not decrease as a result.

Free Games features

the-walking-dead-2-slot-sticky-wilds-free-games-feature

The main bonus features are activated when 3 or more van scatters appear anywhere on the reels during a base game spin. 5 Walker heads then appear. Choose 1 of them to reveal 1 of 5 bonus features. Once you trigger all 5 features, you will be allowed to choose which feature you can want to play. Here’s what to expect from the 4 free spins games:

Walking Wilds Free Games feature: 3, 4 or 5 scatters will award 10, 15 or 25 free spins. When a win is create, the reels respin with a Wild Walker symbol appearing on the reels. With each respin, the Wild Walker reel shifts 1 reel to the left. 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters appearing will award 3, 10, 15 or 25 extra free spins.

Multiplier Free Games feature: 3, 4 or 5 scatters will give you 10, 15 or 25 free spins. Every Wild Walker symbol will appear with a multiplier of 2x, 3x and 5x. If more than 1 multiplier Wild Walker appears, the highest multiplier applies. Finally, 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters will award 3, 10, 15 or 25 more free spins.

Super Stacked Free Games feature: 10, 15 or 25 free spins are awarded with 3, 4 or 5 scatters respectively. A symbol is chosen to appear super stacked on all reels. 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters will give you 3, 10, 15 or 25 additional free spins.

Sticky Wilds Free Games feature: 3, 4 or 5 scatters will give you 10, 12 or 15 free spins. Once in, wild symbols are sticky and lock on the reels whenever they land. Finally, 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters will give you 2, 10, 12 or 15 extra free spins.

Coin Bonus Game feature

the-walking-dead-2-slot-coin-bonus-game-feature

The Coin Bonus Game feature can only be played when you land 4 or 5 scatters. A 3x or 5x win multiplier respectively is applied. You then head to a 5×5 grid with a Walker on the middle acting as a divider.

Blank spaces, bronze, silver and gold coins, The Walking Dead bonus, 2x and 3x multiplier symbols can land on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5. The feature ends when no matching coins appear on the grid. Here’s what they offer:

  • Coins: when 2 or more of the same coin appear on either side of the Walker, a payout is awarded for each coin. Bronze, silver and gold coins pay 0.4, 0.6 or 1 x bet respectively. A coin may leave a skull symbol in its place which inactivates the position for the remainder of the feature.
  • Multipliers: when appearing, total win is multiplied by the highest multiplier value. Multiple multiplier symbols will see the highest multiplier value applied and the remaining multipliers applied to total win on the following spin(s).
  • The Walking Dead Bonus: 3 or more appearing anywhere on the grid will award 1 of 4 fixed jackpots. The jackpots can be won multiple times too. Here’s what they pay:
Grand Jackpot 1,000 x stake
Major Jackpot 200 x stake
Minor Jackpot 50 x stake
Mini Jackpot 20 x stake

Originality








The Walking Dead 2 slot is better than the original game and depicts the TV series perfectly. Starring the same much-loved characters like Rick Grimes and Negan, the graphics are better with a much more intense atmosphere.

The gameplay follows the same pattern of the original slot with fixed jackpots and plenty of free spins features available. Whilst The Walking Dead 2 has 4 free spins features as opposed to 5 in the original, there’s more variety available in the sequel. You’ll also trigger a feature every 3.73 spins (26.74% feature frequency).

With 500 x bet max wins per spin or free spin, the Multiplier Free Games feature is the most lucrative potentially as you can benefit from 5x Wild Walker symbols. This can lead to 2,500 x stake max wins on each free spin theoretically.

However, the Coin Bonus Game feature is the best of the features. With the Grand Jackpot worth 1,000 x your total bet, you can land the jackpots multiple times. This can lead to 2,192.6 x bet wins overall.

The original game offered 2,198 x bet max wins so the sequel actually offers slightly smaller wins. Overall, The Walking Dead 2 is better than the original with more variety from the bonus features and better graphics. I would have hoped the win potential would have been closer to 5,000 x bet or higher.

Want more zombie action? Cabin Crashers by Quickspin is the game to play. Offering a combination of free spins and multipliers, it comes with 22,144 x bet max wins.

If you want branded slot games with big win potential, The Mummy: Book of Amun Ra by Playtech comes with 10,000 x stake top payouts. Games of Thrones Power Stacks by Microgaming comes with 25,000 x bet max wins.

Pros
  • Official game for The Walking Dead TV series
  • Higher win potential than original game
  • Play from just 5p per spin
Cons
  • Similar gameplay to original
