Pokie Review

The X Files theme, graphics and sound

From the eerie theme music and occasional use of the instantly recognisable theme tune to the atmospheric graphics, this pokie really goes to town on The X Files theme.

A futuristic font has been used for the royals so that they resemble fragments of code, while the higher paytable symbols include a flashlight, Mulder and Scully together and apart, and an alien hand.

The transparent reels spin against the kind of strange and creepy forest that just has to be teeming with alien activity. All in all, the subdued palette and unsettling atmosphere created by the soundtrack makes for a very playable pokie.

The X Files

How to play The X Files

This five-reel, 20-payline pokie is played with all 20 paylines active, so all you have to do is pick a stake and press the glowing green spin button. Hit the plus and minus buttons to toggle your stake between 0.20 and 500 credits and set autoplay options and sound settings from the clear interface. You can also opt for turbo mode if you are pushed for time but can’t resist a few cheeky spins.

The X Files RTP and volatility

The theoretical RTP here is 95.12 per cent, which is based on the return from a $100 stake. This is fairly average for a pokie of this type with its medium volatility.

If you enjoy a combination of fairly frequent base game wins with the possibility of landing up to 1,000x your stake on any given spin, you will definitely want to give The X Files a spin at the higher end of the staking range.

How to win at The X Files

Like any pokie, the way to win payouts in The X Files is to create combinations of three or more paytable symbols across an active payline. All winning combinations read left to right from reel one.

All prizes are paid in multipliers. The highest paying symbols are Mulder and Scully, who each carry a 200x multiplier when five land on a payline. The multiplier wilds also reward you with a 200x multiplier if you land a full house of five in a line, which delivers a potential top prize of 100,000 credits. With multiplier rewards, the higher your stake, the higher your payout.

The X Files bonus features

There are two bonus features in The X Files, both of which have the potential to be hugely rewarding. Both depend on the rift - the idea that behind the gameplay reels is another hidden set of reels that is only revealed when a rift occurs. These reels are covered in multipliers from 1x to 5x and act as wild symbols in the base game.

Hit three or more of the I Want to Believe scatter symbols and you will trigger the free spins feature. Watch the flying saucers head for their home planet as you are awarded seven free games for three scatters, ten free spins for four scatters, and twenty free games for five scatters. These come with locking rifts that stick in place when they land to reveal a range of multiplier prizes - you could be looking at a 25x multiplier on every free spin if the reels land for you.

The X Files mobile play

We love our pokies on the big screen, but The X Files is totally made for mobile gaming. It is optimised for HTML5, loads fast, and plays smoothly through your mobile browser on any mobile and tablet running iOS, Android or Windows. The soundtrack is superb through headphones and the eerie feel of the game is magnified on a smaller screen, late at night.

If you love The X Files, you’ll love…

Playtech is the master of branded spin-off games and there are plenty to choose from. If you enjoy film and TV pokies, you will enjoy the brilliant blockbuster spin-off Justice League and the thrills and spills of Top Gun. If you like your pokies with a large side order of scares, the stunning Aliens pokie from NetEnt has cinematic graphics and a truly edge-of-your-seat three-stage bonus where you try to eliminate the alien.

The X Files free play review

If you loved the iconic TV series, we think you will love this pokie. Although the gameplay is fairly straightforward, it is much more than the sum of its parts. Driven by the atmospheric soundtrack and subdued but on-point graphics, this game is all about the rift game mechanics. This can be an incredibly lucrative feature, offering the possibility for up to 1,000x multipliers per spin.

Basically a series of openings on each reel, the rift reveals multipliers on a secret reel. Land the free spin bonus and they will lock in place for a potentially highly lucrative feature. Even without it, fans of the series will want to play this pokie for its slightly tongue in cheek but very affectionate tribute to one of the greatest TV shows ever.

The X Files - the truth is out there

We loved this spin-off pokie with its atmospheric and immersive gameplay.

If you want to believe - and your bankroll is big enough - the truth is out there when you spin The X Files.
