The X-Files Slot Review & Game Bonus

The X-Files slot machine from Playtech is of course based on the hit TV show starring Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. Like all new Playtech slots the mobile game looks great, and also has a high RTP of 96.2%. There are two bonus features which are multiplier wilds and a free spins bonus called the Locking Rift Free Games feature that awards up to 20 free spins. Read the full The X-Files slot review below for all the details, and see whether it is a game that suits your style of play.

The X-Files Slot Review & Game Bonus

Join FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully on a top secret mission to discover paranormal prizes in Playtech’s The X-Files slot – a five-reel, 20-payline game that benefits from masses of multiplier mayhem.

Based on the hit American TV show, The X-Files is a science fiction-themed slot set in front of an eerily illuminated forest backdrop, The unique symbols to feature on the reels include the two main protagonists, their silhouettes, a flashlight and an alien hand, while the show’s unmistakable theme music plays during the free spins feature and ambient night-time sounds underscore the base game.

Playable from as little as £0.20 per spin, The X-Files slot machine can be enjoyed across all desktop, mobile and tablet devices and includes a regular base game jackpot of 200x. This can, however, be significantly increased by the presence of “rift” multipliers, which can boost the value of payline wins by up to 5x.

I Want To Believe

In terms of bonus features, The X-Files is actually a relatively straightforward slot. The only real attraction out there is a free spins game that is triggered by landing three, four or five UFO symbols anywhere on the reels. This will award 7, 10 or 20 free spins respectively, but the bad news is that additional bonus games cannot be re-triggered, meaning what you win is what you get in this feature.

Before you get too despondent about the lack of re-triggers, however, it is worth pointing out that any “rift” wild symbols that appear during the feature in the slot will lock in place. The multiplier value will then change with each new spin, awarding anywhere between no bonus and a massive 5x prize increase.

Of course, with multiplier of between 2x and 5x available, it is therefore theoretically possible to land a 5x “rift” multiplier on each of the five reels. Should this happen, players will receive a minimum prize of 200x if all five multipliers blank, but it could be worth a whopping 5,000x at the maximum value.

The X-Files Slot Conclusion

We’re caught in two minds about The X-Files slot. On the one hand it’s a fairly basic slot, but on the other it looks and sounds great and the “rift” multipliers can potentially award huge prizes on any given spin.
