This may seem like just a 5×4 reel video slot game with 1024 ways to win, but with splitting symbols, you can reach 100,000 ways in the free spin bonus. Here’s the full Captain Xeno’s Earth Adventure slot review.
The title may not roll off the tongue, but you know that you’re getting one hell of a sci-fi adventure as our alien captain lands on a deserted planet, looking for treasure.
That deserted planet is Earth, and as we Earthlings know, finding treasure in this great blue ball is not always easy, but certainly not impossible.
With a host of colourful alien crew members as high-paying symbols and then Ace to 10 finishing the paytable, this pirate slot crew from outer space will soon win over your heart, if not always your wallet.
The good news is that as you set off on your journey, you know that there’s a map to the treasure on board. The main feature, of course, is the splitting symbols.
On any spin, one symbol can be chosen to split and give you two rather than one symbol in that space. This increases the ways to win, and by default, the number of wins you can achieve in a single spin.
And that’s not the only random bonus: the Captain might fly in and add 2 scatters to the next spin, or even 1 to 5 wilds, guaranteeing you a win. It’s exciting to watch and reminded us a little bit of the Xways Hoarders xSplit slot.
Of course, most of the big wins will come via the free spin bonus. Usually, you’ll catch 3 scatters and trigger just 8 free spins which makes the bonus hard work.
Why? Because you need to catch 7 scatters during the bonus to upgrade the splitting symbols to split into 3 rather than 2 (and get an extra +4 spins). If you catch a further 4 scatters after that, you’ll upgrade the splitting symbols further as they split into 4 rather than 3.
It’s exciting to watch, but you really need to catch at least 4 or 5 starting scatters, and 10 or 12 free spins, to successfully accomplish this mission. Captain Xeno’s Earth Adventure mobile slot adventure is volatile for a reason: the wins here are not easy to get.
But if you bet 100 a spin, you can walk away with a cool million, and not many video slot games have the galls to give you that option. One for high thrill, high bet gamblers only.

Wild: The 'W' symbols substitute for all symbols except the scatter. It can show up on all reels.
Electric Shock: On any base game spin, 1 symbol type can be selected to split, causing all instances of that symbol to split into 2. Scatters and Wilds can not be split.
Emergency Wilds: On any normal spin, 1-5 wilds can randomly be added to the reels. This guaranteed a win.
Engine Recharge: On any base game spin, 2 scatters may be added to the reels. This increases your chances of catching the free spins bonus.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols trigger 8, 10, or 12 free spins. During the free spins the chance of getting split symbols increase. As you play you also collect the scatter in the scatter collection giving you added features:
Captain Xeno’s Earth Adventure slot machine is an extremely volatile game that may see you end up stranded in a desert of wins, or rolling around in a rich interplanetary adventure.
There's no in-between, especially when you consider that the only way to get to the top win of 10,000x your bet is by fighting to collect 11 scatters in the bonus game.
But if you do, those splitting symbols have a way of winning over your heart, much like the day in the San Quentin Xways slot.
Maybe even a little bit more here as Play'n GO slot games have the kind of visuals that can make the most complicated idea seem fun and easy to play.
