Something’s gone terribly amiss in the Playtech’s online slot Scatter Brains 2, an intriguing release with hordes of zombies invading the world. The game showcases standard, cartoonish visuals and an upbeat audio, somewhat in discordance with the topic. This zombie-themed slot with a humorous twist will allow you to take advantage of Wild Substitutions, Scatter Pays, Respins and a Free Spins feature.
The 5-reel, 3-row layout isn’t configured to traditional paylines. Instead, the game offers 243 ways to win. Such mechanics helps you obtain payouts, since all you need to do is align symbols on adjacent reels from left to right. Click on up and down arrows to adjust the size of your wager from as low as $0.10 and as high as $500. Press Spin to start the game or enable Autoplay with up to 100 automatic spins.
There are five high-value symbols represented as characters that transform into the undead, bringing prizes from 1.2x to 6x your wager. The lower part of the Paytable is occupied by playing card symbols Jack through Ace, all offering payouts of 0.5x the bet for 5 of a kind. Biohazard Wild completes winning combos by replacing all symbols but Scatter. Both of these special icons appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. Once 3 Scatters hit adequate reels, a prize of 5x the stake is granted.
Land 3 Scatters on the reels 2, 3 and 4 and you will get 5 free spins. During this round you should watch out for Zombie Wilds that roam the reels until they stop on a symbol and substitute it with Wild. Furthermore, should this icon land on a character symbol, that reel is improved and you are granted a Respin of all reels. Improved reels can only contain Wilds and Character symbols. To top it all off, regular Scatter is replaced by Feature Wild that has the ability to stand for all other icons. If Zombie Wild lands on it, a 3x multiplier is awarded. Unfortunately, the feature cannot be re-activated.
Despite the potential Scatter Brains 2 definitely has, we couldn’t get our hands on the truly significant payouts. The Free Spins round, which can make a difference, is quite evasive. But, should you manage to unlock it, you will be generously rewarded. Bear in mind that the game offers a RTP of 94.03%, which is below the average. If you’re a fan of the topic and don’t mind spinning the reels of a medium variance game, you can find Scatter Brains 2 across all platforms. Play it on your smartphone, tablet or desktop.
