We can tell you right now that this NetEnt video slot is going to divide a lot of people. Well to hell with them, we had a glorious time killing aliens and dying under a spit of acid time and time again.
It’s not the theme that is going to divide people. You are either a fan of the Aliens franchise or you’re not. Those who are will be happy to know that Aliens slot on mobile is as graphically glorious as you’d expect and needs to be played with full sound.
However, don’t let all the ‘collect multipliers’ and ‘shoot-em up’ graphics fool you, this is a very simple mobile slot machine with wilds and free spins. And that’s it. The big disappointment will come from those who are looking forward to some kind of multi-faceted mini game. It looks like it belongs on a Playstation, but NetEnts Aliens Touch slot game basically goes back to simple basics.
Despite the fact that it may seem difficult to hit the free spins (read our feature section below to find out more), we very rarely played more than 100 spins on this Aliens mobile slot without hitting this one and only feature. So budget for 100 spins, as during the main game your wins will be minimal at best. Unless you hit a five of a kind, there’s nothing here to get that excited about.
The excitement comes from watching that counter increase and hitting “Level 2” – level 1 is the base game so Level 2 is basically the start of the free spins. During Level 2 you are guaranteed a win on each spin – and these come with multipliers . Although you can potentially get 15 free spins in total, more often than not, expect five or six. If you manage to survive Level 2 you’ll reach the Hive (level 3). To give you an idea, in the first 10 times we entered Level 2, we only reached the Hive once. It’s not easy.
Even if you don’t get to the Hive, one of our biggest wins, 169x our bet, was on Level 2. However, expect closer to around 20x your bet. But don’t sweat it marines, keep cool under pressure and eventually you’ll reach the queen.
The Hive hides, in our calculation, a breezy 1240x your bet in-game jackpot. However, you can imagine this is as likely as surviving an Alien attack; most of us aren’t Ripley and we will all die way before that even comes close to happening.
But you know what? We had great fun trying. Because despite the hopes of big wins, this mobile slot game is really far more about entertainment. The free spins come far too often for it to be anything but. That said, because this is all about the free spins, don’t make the mistake so many out there have made and throw your money on the base game. Take your budget, think about how much you have to bet to spin at least 200 spins, and then start playing.

Wilds: The Weyland Yutani Corp logo is the wild symbol... a little detail we loved as fan geeks by the way. This little beauty will help you get those wins to get to the free spins, but the less you have, the biggest the multipliers.
Level 1: Also called 'the search' this is basically your base game. You spin the reel for money and every time you win you collect symbols. The higher the symbol value the bigger the multiplier value associated with these symbols. If you don't win on a spin, you lose symbols. Collect 10 and you get to level 2. Also known as the start of the free spins.
Level 2: This level is known as 'The Encounter'; here you'll be taken down a dark corridor as a marine killing off face-huggers and aliens. Remember those symbols and wins you collected in the base game? They show up here again as 'sticky wins' so you win on every free spin and collect bigger wins and multipliers for level three, if you make it that far. After every spin you'll randomly get rewarded magazine clips for your gun. If you run out (which you will more than likely do)... that's it, you've been eliminated. This level amounts to 10 free spins.
Level 3: Here you've reach 'the Hive' and the Alien Queen. You'll have five chances to kill the queen... if you are not killed first of course. Isn't this fun?
The more multipliers you accumulated in level 2, the better your chances of walking away with something truly glorious. If you manage to kill the Alien Queen (ha!) you'll get an extra bonus of 240x your bet for that kill alone, plus everything else you've accumulated getting here. It's tough, but exciting every time that monster appears in the screen. You can feel it in the pit of your stomach.
We got lucky with Aliens mobile slot and walked away when we were 50% up on our starting budget. It was tempting to continue, but we knew we got lucky and that was a good time to stop.
As long as you keep that clear in your mind how much you want to win, and enjoy what's basically a graphically very beautiful free spins feature, you should have great fun with this Aliens NetEnt slot. Just budget carefully for those free spins.
