War of the Worlds is a 100-payline slot and is a new fierce competitor for the top tier in science-fiction fantasy slots. The music is full of depth and variation just like the original score, filled with eerie sounds and high-intensity music; the drawings are creatively done with intriguing detail and with a 3-part bonus round increasing in rewards, the battle is worth fighting.
As the alien ship heads for earth, telescopes and observatories are carefully monitoring the skies for the impending attack. An alien ship lands on the reels and is being discovered by two British investigators, an alien tripod walks around with its spindly legs terrorizing the planet and the grotesque alien veins cover everything in sight as they feed off human blood.
The poker run symbols break up the detailed sketches after the well of creativity ran dry. Visual animations are also included making the slot that much more interesting with a tentacle alien emerging from its ship, birds flying in droves away from the smoke and flames of destruction and then landing on the alien tripods as their resistance to the earth’s biosphere begins to destroy the giants.
Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of The Worlds boasts a Fighting Machine bonus round with 3 scatter alien destroyers on the reels. Fight the invaders with cannons at three different locals: the Horsell Common, London and The Coast.
Surviving an attack with all cannons intact takes players to the next battle where prizes increase in value. The War of The Worlds wild logo substitutes for all symbols except the bonus scatter and any 2 wilds on a reel expand to make winnings on the entire reel. The biggest battle in this slot isn't against the alien invaders, but trying to get into the bonus round. Good luck it was a losing battle.
