Inspired adapts video game Space Invaders into a new slot

Inspired Entertainment, Inc. has announced the launch of TAITO’s legendary video game Space Invaders online and mobile slot. Space Invaders is a medium volatility game with a return to player (RTP) rate of 95%, aimed at the casual online casino player and available via regulated operators.

Inspired’s slot adaptation keeps Space Invaders’ original design, with a reel configuration of 5×3 and 20-win lines. Space Invaders and its mechanics and graphics aim to bring the joy of retro gaming to this decade.

The game’s UFO and Cannon reel modifiers can appear at random and award one of five additional reel-enhancing modifiers, including the Wild Cannon, Monster Wild, 5 Of A Kind, Mega Reel and Bonus Boost. Three or more bonus coin scatters anywhere in view award players one of six bonus rounds: Shoot Out, UFO Climber, Wild Cannon, Monster Wild, Mega Reel, and Space Invaders. The game’s Bonus Gamble mechanic offers players a chance to play a higher bonus in the trail or win a mystery cash prize.

Steve Collett, Chief Product Officer at Inspired, said: “Launched in the late seventies, Space Invaders was a pioneer in the video game industry, inspiring numerous game designs across an array of genres. Despite its maturity, it is still one of the most recognizable gaming brands of all time. We are thrilled to bring this retro classic back to players with novel features including reel-enhancing modifiers, six exhilarating bonus rounds, and a Bonus Gamble mechanic. Space Invaders is set to become a memorable and player favorite slot game this season, and beyond.”
