Chain Reactors Online Video Slot
Chain Reactors is a popular arcade-style online video slot game powered by OpenBet software. The game itself completely redefines the slot game with an innovative tumbling reel arcade style of play. As with all slot games, this game has a specific theme which is loosely based on the old-school space invaders game that was popular in the 80’s and early 90’s. The game itself does not have a background as such with the screen split into three main parts. On the right hand side of the screen is the area that displays the current winnings. On the left is the paytable which is where players can view the various characters or game symbols and in the centre of the screen is the main game area.
A unique Arcade-Style Slot
As one of the more unique slot games, Chain Reactors does not really have reels as such. Instead what the game does have is a ten by ten grid of game symbols that are used to create a winning combination. In order to pay out a winning combination, 6 or more of the same symbol or character must be stacked on top of one another. The easiest way to think of the game in terms of Tetris and other stacked symbol games. When a winning combination is achieved, the symbols involved in the combination will explode and disappear from the screen. More symbols will drop down and fall into the open space creating more chances for another winning combination.
Symbol Combinations and Payouts
The symbols in Chain Reactors play the most important role of the game. The symbols themselves also give the game its unique space theme. Each symbol is a type of alien character that moves around on the screen with bright colours and various facial expressions. There are a total of 9 characters in this game. Each character pays out a different amount for a winning combination. The lowest paying character is Spiky. He will pay out 0.1 x your bet stake for a 6 symbol combination and 15x your total bet for 18 or more symbols together. Next in line is sunny paying out 0.2x for six symbols and 65x your bet stake for 18 or more.
High Paying Kooky Characters
The higher paying characters in Chain Reactors include Minty, Cyclo, Brainy, Zoid and Horny. For six symbols Horny pays out 35x your bet and 500x your bet stake for 18 or more. The game also includes a progressive jackpot that is triggered by landing 18 or more Goldie characters on a maximum bet. The game beings with the player setting their bet. This can be done by clicking on the up and down arrows at the bottom of the screen.
Exploding Symbols and Tumbling Reels
To start the game players can select the autoplay option to play 5, 10 or 25 spins at a time. Once the number of spins has been set, the symbols will drop down from the top of the screen and fill up a 10 by 10 grid. If any of the symbols match, they will explode and more symbols will drop into place. Wining combinations in Chain Reactors is displayed on the right hand side of the screen.
