Arcader Slot Review
If you have a thing for retro arcade games like Space Invaders and Centipede, then you’re going to enjoy Thunderkick’s Arcader. This 5-reel, 15-payline slot looks just like an old-school arcade game, and it has the graphics to match too. You’ll also hear music throughout the game that’s reminiscent of the 1980s. Keep reading to find out what else Arcader offers beyond its interesting theme, including betting options, graphics, features, and return to player (RTP).
Arcader Slot Details
It’s hard to pinpoint this game as being modeled after any particular retro video game. Instead, it looks like a mix of many games with its blocky graphics, bright colors, and planetary graphics. Our only criticism of the setting is that you can barely see the payline numbers on both sides of the reels.
Symbols consist of generic things that you’ll see in classic slot machines, such as a 7, BAR, bell, cherries, grape, lemon, and watermelon. But given that these symbols are presented in block-like format, they look very different than what’s seen in classic slots games.
As for betting options, the paylines are fixed at 15, which is common with many Thunderkick slots. But you can change your total bet from £/€0.20 to £/€100.00.
Arcader Slot Features
It’s hard to figure out what the special symbols are in Arcader until you look at the paytable. But once you do look, you’ll see that the W is wild, the B is a bonus symbol, the M is a Mystery symbol, and the two arrows create an expanding wild.
The bonus symbol can award you 9 free spins and a 1x multiplier (3 symbols), 3x multiplier (4 symbols), or a 9x multiplier (5 symbols). These free spins give you at least one sticky wild on every spin.
The Mystery bonus is triggered by landing 3 or more M symbols anywhere on the reels. This allows you to collect mystery wins until you either get a blank space or have collected all the mystery prizes.
Arcader Slot Payout (RTP%)
RTP for Arcader is 96.1%, which is above average for an online slot. This is another good reason to play what’s a very unique game.
Much like all of the Thunderkick online slots we are a fan of the Arcader slot. We like the retro graphics in Arcader, and it has enough special features to keep you entertained. On top of that you get the usual great RTP% come to be expected from the Thunderkick range as well as a smooth running game that seems to run perfectly on all the systems we tested it on.
