Visitors is an October 6th 2020 release from slot developer ELK Studios. Here we take on a theme of Alien Abductions which feels like a parody of the 1950’s style alien invasion type films or even the old PS2 game, Destroy All Humans. Visitors slot comes with a range of base game modifiers and a free spins bonus which has some serious potential for big wins. Let’s take a look at how it functions and what your chances are of actually seeing any of those big wins.

Value for Money
Visitors slot is a fun game which is helped along by the respins feature spicing up the base game somewhat. However, it is the free spins bonus which makes it an attractive slot to play as the potential for big wins is really decent. When you see the grid positions getting the big multipliers attached to them every free spin is a heartstopper.

How it Pays and Plays
Visitors is a 5 reel 5 row slot with 3,125 paylines. Bets range from 0.2 coins to 100 coins of your chosen currency, making it accessible to low stakes slots players and also to those with a bank balance bursting at the seams.
The RTP is a reasonable 96.1% and it’s marked as being 8/10 on the volatility scale. The hit frequency is 22%.
There are respins and a free spins type bonus round with multipliers.
Sound and Graphics
Visitors bounces along to a synthetic sounding type of music with a child saying “they’re as real as human beings”, “They’re here” ect every so often, there are also a range of accompanying alien type sound effects. It’s well done and adds to the game, probably not leading you to hit the mute button.
The graphics reminded me of 1950’s alien invasion type movies andyou’ll also see that you look down on the reels from above as though you’re taking the aliens point of view. The reels are set on a background of a country town and farmland.
Lower paying symbols are Ace to 10’s. Premium symbols are, in ascending order, a water fountain, a green building, a futuristic looking purple building, a yellow building and a red building as the top paying symbol, perhaps it’s the town hall or something, it’s got a clock on it and two towers to either side.
There are also Wild symbols which can sub for any other symbols apart from the Scatters and the Respins symbols.
If you land a “Respins” symbol on reels 1 and 5 you’ll get a respin with 2 modifiers added. These can be any of the following.
Big o Beam: A random symbol is selected and transforms into a 2×2 or 3×3 block.
Abduction: A multiplier of up to 15 x is added to the respin win value.
Alien Abduction: Wild symbols are added to the reels during the respin.
Alien Invasion Free Spins Bonus
Get Scatter symbols, which are alien spaceship/flying saucers on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you’ll get 5 free spins. Here you’re taken to a new grid where all the places for symbols to land are empty. There are 25 spaces in all on the same 5×5 grid.
When the free spins start it’s a type of hold and win game, where you’ll see various flying saucers spinning on the reels, you need them to land and if none do then it uses up one of your free spins. The number of free spins you have can be seen at the top with a rocket ship to symbolize every remaining free spins.
Once either a silver or gold symbol flying saucer symbol lands on the reels you get awarded with an extra free spin. The silver symbols will give you a 1x value of your stake back but they also create a multiplier on that specific grid position where it landed. After each spin the grid is removed of all symbols and you’ll just see the multiplier values on any given grid position. Keep landing more silver symbols on any grid position and it will keep doubling up in value. Gold symbols will also double the value of any grid position with a multiplier already attached to it. You can reach up to a maximum of 4,096x for any position on the grid.
