When a mysterious plant from outer space lands in Skeeters farm, there are only two things he can do; call it Butch and feed it grain. And it’s easy to see why he got attached so quickly.
The It Came from Venus slot online is naturally a very visual video slot. It comes with a big cinematic introduction, where you’re told that the middle America farmer Skeeters encounters a strange hungry alien plant that made its way from our neighbour planet.
In comes the government in the form of Lieutenant Pogue who wants to capture the plant and dissect it. Because, humanity. In between all this, there’s you, the player, feeding grain to the now aptly named Butch, the giant plant, (as chopped up body parts was already taken by a little shop of horrors in Skid Row) and rescuing him from Pogue.
None of this, is really made clear in the It Came from Venus mobile slot. If you’d never heard of this Betsoft game, you’d open up a slot about… farming? Possibly farming giant plants? And… there’s a dog called butch, cause that’s a dog house… corn… army… shovel?
All the symbols are unique and beautifully drawn, don’t take us wrong. But part of the fun is knowing how each of the bonus features ties in with the story and to give it that breath taking action.
You won’t be surprised to hear that the It Came from Venus slot game is low variance. You’ll find yourself winning little, but often.
However, part of the joy of BetSoft slot machines is the fact that despite knowing in your heart that if you nurture this creature, look after it, and feed it coins… you may find yourself selling it for a large fortune.
Mostly, this is done through the wilds, that come with random multipliers from 2x to 4x, and with more than one on screen, accumulate. So having one wild with 3x multiplier and then another with 4x, will lead to a 12x multiplier in total.
This is particularly effective during the free spins games where you get a sticky wild on the centre of reel 3.
The progressive jackpot is also a sweetener, but generally doesn’t go beyond a few tens of thousands, so it’s more of a nice to have, than a life changing amount of the likes of Mega Moolah or Mega Fortune.
All in all however, the pleasure of having man’s best alien friend is its own rewards. It Came from Venus video slot for mobile is about entertainment, with all those wilds, collapsing reels and frequent click me bonus. On that note, we would recommend a good WiFi connection for the best experience as it can be a little slow as an Android phone slot or iPhone slot.
A ‘big win’ here is about 45x to 50x your bet. So if you find yourself with a good 25% on top of your starting budget you may want to consider trying out some different jackpot slots. Thank-fully, you can play a good long while on only a small budget on this mobile casino game, which is always good fun.

Stacked Collapsing Wins: Get three of the same type of symbols on a reel, and these symbols will collapse and award you a three symbol payout, as well as get added symbols for a new potential win.
You'll need at least 2 of these to get 2x your game bet? Not a lot you say? That's true. but they show up fairly frequently, helping keeping that budget steady.
Of course, the big win here is if you get three reels of the same symbol, where you'll win 40x your game bet. A sweet, sweet treat.
Random Wilds: Every time a wild appears on reels 2 or 4, you'll get a multiplier of either 2x, 3x, or 4x.
These are accumulative and can add together for some impressive wins. The wild symbol is represented by plant food, not that you'll be able to see it through the multiplier.
"Feed Me" Free Spins: If that wild plant food symbol shows up on reel 3 it doesn't act as a wild. Instead it dissapears on the bottom of the screen, where you'll be waiting to collect five of these little beauties.
One you do, you'll get 12 free spin games, where if that same plant food symbol appears on reel three again, they will remain sticky for the remainder of the free spins and act as a wild. Usually you get one of these, and the earlier you get them, the bigger your free spin wins.
Scatter: The scatters in the It Came from Venus slot machine has absolutely nothing to do with the free spin round (as explained above). So it means they show up often and come with a nice payoff, especially if you get more than 3 on the screen.
Gamble Feature: This one is fun. And whilst it's still your standard 50/50 chance of doubling any wins you make in the game, instead of the coin, you are feeding the alien plant.
If he catches the food, you win double your money, if he misses, you lose it all.
Save The Plant Click Me Bonus Round: Get 3 helicopter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you'll trigger this bonus round.
Sometimes we've had to wait over 100 spins to see this feature. Other times we've hit it four times in less than 50 spins. It's pretty unpredictable, including in how much you can win.
The dastardly Lieutenant Pogue has kidnapped the Plant, so it's up to you and Skeeter to go after the helicopter and rescue the plant. You sneak onto the transport truck, help Skeeter by clicking on the crates, collecting instant cash bonus coins for each crate you click on and don't find the plant.
Yes we know, logically you should get more for finding the plant. Instead you get cash in the crates without the plant, making you wonder if Skeeter should forget about his little green friend and keep searching those crate for more cash.
But perhaps we're the cold hearted ones here.
About 20x your bet is a good win, 50x your bet is awesome.
It Came from Venus mobile slot will not appeal to everyone. Fans of the online slot will miss the big cinematic storytelling that brings this real money game to life, whilst newbies may find the theme a little out of place.
However, if you don't care one bit about the slot and you are looking for a way to spend your budget over the course of a couple of hours, this progressive jackpot game will certainly help keep you steady and has some good multipliers to give you hope to come out on top.
