Zombie Hoard Slots

Does it count as horror if it’s as cute as a button? Sure, you’d probably be eaten and maimed in the most horrendous of ways by these zombies. But small mercies are in your favour – you’d probably die of laughter before they got you. With an upbeat soundtrack and some silly shambling corpses, Microgaming starts off strong. Zombie Hoard is played on a 5x3 board with 9 fixed paylines. In terms of special features, there aren’t many to woo the player. Stacked Wilds can appear on certain reels, and expand to all reels during free spins! Speaking of free spins, all wins during the bonus are doubled! To make things even better, there are two different ways to activate this special feature!

How to Play

It’s far from a visual powerhouse, but it looks passable. The theme is relatively simple to grasp, too. After all, it’s a concept we’ve seen many times over. Big city full of zombies, and some contrived reason why you have to explore it. Maybe in this slot, we’re trying to discover why the developers made the zombies look so goofy? The game is played on a 5 reel board, where each reel is three symbols tall. To win, simply collect three or more identical icons in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel. All wins must follow one of nine active paylines or they won’t be counted.

Betting Options and Payout

Players can wager their wagers between $0.09 and $45 on each spin. You can change your total bet in one of two ways. First, pick a pre-approved wager that the Microgaming release has already prepared for you. Or manually adjust the number of coins and their value to your liking.Whichever suits you best! Zombie Hoard has a medium volatility, and an RTP of 95.29%, which is below the current industry average. And while the top prize worth 2,388x your total stake is cool, we wouldn’t recommend this slot. There’s really no good reason why the RTP is so low.

Symbols and Extra Features

Symbols can be handily split into filler playing card royals and interesting zombie characters. Each of the zombies performed their job when the plague hit them. And so, they still cling to their uniforms and old behaviour! The maid will wiggle and try to seduce you, for instance. It’s those small animations that really bring these undead icons back to life. Wilds only appear super stacked on the third and fourth reel during normal gameplay. However, once free spins are activated, Wilds appear super stacked in all reels, not just the previous two. Think of it as a job well done reward for finally winning free spins! Speaking of free spins, all wins during this special feature are doubled. There are also two different ways to unlock them! You can use the more old-fashioned method of finding three or more Scatters. Or, you can collect bits and pieces of brain until you have enough for extra turns.

Our Verdict

We quite liked the theme – especially the zombies themselves. That said, Zombie Hoard could have definitely benefitted from another special features. Give us something to do while we’re chasing after free spins!
