Somewhat of a spiritual successor to hugely popular Blood Suckers, the 2012 NetEnt title Zombies replicates the same winning recipe – high payout, gory theme, two bonus games, and the ease with which it can be played. A great slot game for casual players, especially those who like zombies. Which should be pretty much everyone.

Zombies Slots: General review
The most important trait of Zombies is the high theoretical return to player (RTP) of 97.20%, which makes this game really worth playing as it’s in the top five highest-paying NetEnt slots and close to the top list of highest-paying slots overall. Zombies is a slot game that’s easy to play and that won’t be stealing your money. It’s hugely popular among younger fun-loving audience.
There are two bonus games in Zombies. The first one is a free spins game where you get exactly 5 free spins, and between each spin the zombie infestation in the abandoned mall will be worse and worse, and your character will shoot them with a shotgun, winning a prize. Crucially, after each spin the multiplier will increase, and the 5 spins will have multipliers of 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x respectively. This means the last spin will mean the difference between a decent win and a huge win.
There is a random Wild feature in the base game that’s good enough to be called the second bonus game in Zombies, and you can get up to 10 extra Wilds on your reels. This feature is totally random and it can produce some really nice wins when triggered. The game has 20 paylines on a 3×5 reel set so NetEnt fans will know the game greatly benefits from some extra Wilds on the reels.
Zombies is a great visual experience, and it has one of the best horror themes. NetEnt opted for a comic book theme, and the zombies are drawn so well that they might even deserve their own comic book or animated series, that’s how good NetEnt made it. When it comes to unique artwork by a slot game developer, it doesn’t get much better than what NetEnt has done with Zombies.

Zombies: Strategy and Tips how to play
Strategy isn’t very needed for Zombies as it’s an easy to play game with a high payout, and two bonus features that bring you big wins whether you want it or not. This is one of those slots which can be played casually, spinning the reels and enjoying what the developer prepared for you. In Zombie’s case, it’s an experience that looks like an interactive zombie comic book with you as a lead character. It’s an excellent game for killing time, and that’s why it’s so popular. And you might even walk away with a nice win, since Zombies is a slot game that pays. Most likely, that big win will come from the last of the five free spins during the free spins feature, when you get a 10x multiplier.
