Everyone loves a party, but have you ever been to a birthday party with zombies?! If you're like most people, you probably haven't, but now you have the chance in Zombirthday, a spooky-yet-playful pokies game from developers Playson. While the game contains the familiar pokies highlights of wilds, scatters, free spins and a bonus round, the zombie birthday party theme allows us to say with confidence that this game is unique.
Get ready for a hell-raising party with the undead!
The playful cartoonish aesthetic in Zombirthday makes this game a real joy to play. Set in a ghoulish haunted grove complete with haunted trees, skulls and gravestones, even the reel symbols stay true to the zombie party theme. The game features funky, upbeat music with eerie overtones from a synth-organ accentuated by sound effects such as crickets chirping, giving the game a light-hearted but spooky atmosphere that you'd expect at a zombie birthday party.
You'll hear more creepy party noises when you land a winner on the reels as different symbols trigger a variety of sounds!
Zombirthday is a 5-reel, 3-row, 10-line pokies game. Players can choose to play from one to ten lines. The game features a dynamic interface that overlays the potential lines onto the reels so you know exactly what to play for and can effortlessly keep up with your spins. Bets range from 0.01 per line to a max of 1.00 per line, with up to ten lines to play for, making a maximum bet of 10.00 coins.
That makes it especially good for more cautious players and those learning the ropes, but don't get the wrong idea - Zombirthday pays out just as generously as the higher-stake pokies!
The whole game has been artfully crafted, and nowhere is this more visible than on the reels. Cartoon-style symbols include a skull on a platter complete with an apple in its mouth; an alluring female zombie; a bloodied present; and a brain birthday cake. Even the playing card symbols, from 9 to high Ace, look beautifully spooky. Land five of these for payouts from 100 to 125.
If your eye is on the money, you'll want to aim higher. Five wreaths get you 400 coins, and five zombie dogs or brain birthday cakes net a massive 750 coins. Of course, the birthday boy himself is there too, sporting a party hat - collect four in a line for a shocking 2,500 coins and five for an unbelievable 9,000 payout!
The birthday zombie also acts as the wild, replacing all other symbols except the scatter, which is represented by the female party-goer. The birthday boy is also generous enough to give you a 2x multiplier on any winning it forms part of. Land three scatters for 15 free spins, and the party really gets going with huge free spin multipliers!
Parties are all about sharing good times, which is where the bonus round comes in. Every time you win, regardless of how much, you have the chance to gamble your winnings in a double-or-nothing bonus game. Guess whether the face-down card is red or black up to ten times in succession to leave the party with a huge birthday present of your own!
