Thunderkick have yet again created a unique slot theme that takes the symbols that you would usually find in a classic fruity, like bells and bars and put a modern spin on them in this Arcader slot machine.

Instead of the three reels you might expect to find in a classic slot machine, the only thing that’s similar are the symbols. Yet, these symbols are not your ordinary highly detailed graphical masterpieces. These are retro style ‘arcade’ machine style graphics.

Hence the name we guess?

All set on the dark back drop of space you are firmly put in to the first person perspective of standing on the moon looking up at some monstrous 5×3 reels.

From here you can spin the five reels with it’s stacked lemons, plums, bars, bells, sevens, watermelons, oranges and cherries in the hope for a win.

And your hopes for a win are made even more greater by a few base game bonus features.

Stacked wilds and expanding symbols

In the base game you are granted two special features. Much like the regular symbols themselves the wilds here represented by the blue and white ‘W’ symbol come stacked across all reels.

This can lead to some seriously impressive winning combinations and can make even the smallest of wins that little bit bigger. Especially with the help of the ‘Expander’ symbol.

Represented by the two up and down arrows, the expander symbol does pretty much just that.

If it appears in a payline where there’s the possibility of a win then it will turn itself into the symbol that will create the highest paying bet line.

A versatile symbol that when mixed with some of the higher paying bars, sevens and bells and the stacked wilds can give you some big 30 – 40x your bet upwards of wins.

But wait there’s more, in the form of two bonus games.

Free spins and instant cash mystery bonus

There are two other symbols that you’ll find scattered across these 15 paylines in the form of a green ‘B’ and a pink ‘M’.

Lets start with the what finding 3, 4 or 5 of the pink ‘M’ symbols will give you.

Mystery bonus game

Find 3 or more of these mystery bonus symbols and you’ll be rewarded with a screen full of symbols.

Here you get to keep picking symbols from the board to reveal smaller cash prizes represented by the golden coins or bigger ones via the gems.

Find a big red X and you’ll end your bonus game with the cash prizes you have managed to find so far.

A simple bonus game that can bring some decent 30x your bet plus wins with only the 1x multiplier you get by triggering it with 3 bonus symbols.

Trigger it with 4 and you get a 2x multiplier on wins and trigger it with 5 symbols to get a decent 6x multiplier.

A fun casino slot game that can last a while or be over in an instant.

Free spins with up to 9x multiplier and sticky wilds

This has to be the better and more thrilling of the two Arcader slot bonus games.

Find 3 green ‘B’ bonus symbols to get 9 free spins with 1x multiplier, 4 increases the multiplier to x3 and 5 gives you a 9x multiplier.

Once you’ve triggered it the five reels become a wild neon green colour to show you’re in the bonus game.

You’ll want to keep a good eye on the three central reels as these are where on each spin a sticky wild will show up. If you are lucky you could fill all 9 spots, but on average expect about 4 or 5 sticky wilds.

These wilds help you get those bigger wins of the game, even with a 1x multiplier you can walk away happy with a 20 – 40x your bet wins.

Just imagine what that would be with that 9x multiplier working for you.

Is Arcader slot game worth a spin?

We would have to say yes. It’s got everything that makes a video slot great.

Plenty of action in the base game, multiple bonus games that can not only top up your balance but actually present you with the thrills of winning big.

A reasonable starting budget of 0.20 per spin, which granted isn’t as low as the Flux slot machine but still gives most players an opportunity to spin and try it out.

Those stacked wilds and base game expander symbols help give keep the 96.1% return to player rate giving you back some wins and your balance will stay relatively steady.

In all this Arcader online and mobile slot machine is one of the unique style Thunderkick slots which gives you something a little different to spin and win.

And listen out for those classic arcade style sounds and voice overs on a win. You’ll be taken back to the 1980’s all over again.
