What On Earth Slots Review
MicroGaming is well known for some really quirky slot machine themes. What On Earth is one such rather odd online and mobile slot. The game has a fruit machine base theme, coupled with outer space aliens. What On Earth is a simple game, with only nine paylines that can be turned on or off as you choose. Each line can be played for one to five coins, and each coin can value as low as 0.01. This means that What On Earth is a very affordable slot for those of the lower budgets.
This is a game which is aimed more at the younger slot player market. It has been designed to run on a mobile platform, and be played on the go by a busy generation who wants action now. Experienced players may like to give it a go due its quirky nature and theme, but will very likely get bored quite quickly due to the lack of special features and progressive jackpots.
Cartoon Style Slots Action
What On Earth is a funny slot, with a funny theme and amusing graphics. There is no seriousness anywhere on these reels. Microgaming has designed the game to run on slower devices and networks so they have done away with any background. The reels take up the whole screen with a dark purple background. The buttons at the bottom of the screen are neatly laid out, but there are quite a few of them to sift through.
Outer Space Fruits
What On Earth is a cross between a fruit machine and space themed slot. To this end we have a lot of rather odd theme based symbols. All of the symbols have something to do with the theme, and as most fruit machines have the lower symbols are the familiar fruit such as cherries, watermelons, grapes and oranges. These are all done to look like various heavenly bodies however, for example the orange is a sun, the grape is a planet and the cherry is a comet. A green rock, a control pad and alien looking out of a space ship’s widow make up the higher paying base symbols. These will give you up to 1000 coins for five of a kind.
For some reason Microgaming have made the wild symbol in What On Earth only replace two base game symbols. These two that is replaces are the alien in the window and the control panel. It is however the highest paying symbol in the game, awarding you with between four and 7500 credits for one to five of them on an active payline.
The scatters in What On Earth are what the game revolves around. These three scatters are the three ships which the main alien characters travel through space in. These are found on reels three and five and you have to get all of them to trigger the bonus round.
Beam Me Up Bonus
This is the games pick me bonus round which is the only special feature that it offers. In this round in What On Earth you have to choose one of the games alien characters to go down to earth and abduct someone. The choices here are quite varied, and include some funny things like a teddy bear, a dog and a little old lady. Each of these choices will have a different multiplier which will be applied to your spin amount.
