Alaxe in Zombieland is a cruel adaptation of the Lewis Carol tale Alice in Wonderland, where Alice won’t fall down the rabbit hole and explore the fantastic world that lies beyond, but will instead end up in a world full of hungry zombies. Genesis Gaming developed this slot for Microgaming in December 2011. It’s a really dark game, both visually and in theme, and it offers three different bonus features which are triggered by three different Scatters.

General review: Alaxe in Zombieland
There are three Scatters in the game, each triggering its own bonus feature. Scatter 1 only appears on reels 1, 2 and 3, and when you land three of them you’ll enter the Tea Party game. You’ll select one of the Scatters and reveal the number of Teapots that can be selected. Each Teapot will add some free spins or free spins with a multiplier.
Scatter 2 appears on reels 2, 3 and 4, and when you land three you’ll trigger the Red Queens Adventure feature. You’ll be presented with 5 Tombstones, and it will be quite an adventure as you progress through each Tombstone by painting white roses red and hoping the won prize is greater than the Tombstone value. If you manage to get through all 5 Tombstones, you’ll reach the escape level with 6 Doors to choose from.
Scatter 3 appears on reels 3, 4 and 5, and when you land three you’ll trigger the Gravestones feature, which is the simplest bonus feature of the three as it’s just a pick-a-prize bonus game. You’ll be presented with some Gravestones and you’ll pick your prize.
The game has four main high-paying symbols: Alaxe, Cat, Imp and Rabbit, and five low-paying card symbols. Artwork is what you’d expect from a game with a theme that mocks Alice in Wonderland, and it’s a darker version of its characters. The game has 25 paylines and you can choose any number you wish between 1 and 25. The minimum bet per line is $0.01, or $0.25 for all paylines, and the maximum possible bet per spin is $50.
The game seemingly doesn’t pay too often, but it has theoretical payout (RTP) of 96.55%, which is enough to classify it as a high-paying slot. It is still a game with a higher variance so more than a few spins are needed to benefit from those three bonus games and the big payouts they bring. High-paying symbols are just not frequent enough on your reels, and neither are the 9 possible Scatters, so most of the time the spin ends with no significant win, or a win smaller than the bet size.

Strategy and Tips to win on Alaxe in Zombieland
With such high variance, it’s normal to expect that a longer playing session will be needed to trigger all three bonus features and to make some money on them. Choose your bet wisely and don’t get fooled by the playful nature of this slot – it’s difficult to beat and it takes some patience. Longer playing sessions are good for this slot as you increase your chances of landing big wins during bonus features.
