Quickspin want to take you on what they’re describing as an ‘Introvert’s dream’ in their new slot, Cabin Crashers Slot.
The premise of this one takes you to a rickety old cottage in the woods, but peace is short lived when a group of Zombies rudely ruin your peace and quiet. It’s time to grab a gun, and defend your right to a solitary retreat away from all of those pesky extroverts.
Quickspin have become known as a slot developer who are incredibly diverse with their portfolio. Some of their slots may closely resemble others, but slots like Cabin Crashers highlights their innovative mindset with an eye catching theme like this one.
Cabin Crashers Slot Theme
The design of Cabin Crashers really catches your eye with its cartoon theme and unique premise.
The cabin in the woods behind the reels certainly looks like a place where someone who wants to live a solitary life would thrive, but the music is indicative of an imminent battle as undead intruders look to ruin your weekend.
The cartoon visuals really makes Cabin Crashers stand out in an intriguing way. Too many providers fall into the safety net that is Wild West, Pirate or Egyptian themes, and as a result their slots more often than not fail to make an impact as something memorable.
Cabin Crashers: Betting and Symbols
The betting options for Cabin Crashers provides the same extensive options as other Quickspin titles do, with options that start from £/0.20 per spin and stretch to £/€100 per spin. There are plenty of different options in between the lowest and highest stake, and the slight incremental increases between them means that there’s an ideal option for everyone.
The symbols in this game tells us more about the tough guy persona of the main character of this slot with high paying sybols represented as the mounted heads of those that have tried to disturb his peaceful getaway. The highest paying symbol is a Jason Voorhees looking symbol, and following on from him is a Bear and a Crocodile. If Jason Voorhees fell victim then what chance do Zombies stand? No chance.
Medium paying symbols are the Shotgun Shells, Axe and Moonshine Bottle, and low paying symbols are A, K, Q, J & 10.
There are also Wild Symbols, which may appear as x2, x3, x4 and x5 Multipliers in both the Base Game and Free Spins
Cabin Crashers: The Base Game and Features
Cabin Crashers is a 5 reel slot with 20 fixed pay lines. To form a win you’ll need at least 3 of any symbol to connect along any of the 20 lines, starting from left to right.
Rewards for connecting the higher paying symbols in the game are decent enough on their own, with a 40x pay out for a line of the highest paying symbol, and to make the potential even more potent comes the Multiplier Wilds
The Multiplier Wilds are present on reels 2, 3 and 4 in both the Base Game and the Zombie Siege Free Spins.
These Symbols will substitute for all symbols except for the Gravestone Scatter, and they’ll have multiplier values of x2-x5 in the Base Game. When there are multiple Wilds in the same pay line, then they’ll be added together for a total multiplier for that line.
Multiplier Wilds will vary in Free Spins, depending on which option you choose.
Zombie Siege Free Spins
3 Gravestone Scatter Symbols are needed to trigger the Zombie Siege Free Spins, and they’re available on reels 1, 3 and 5.
Before the round starts, you’ll enter the Grave Picker Feature to determine how many spins you get and what your multiplier will be.
- Grave 1 – 12 Spins and Random Multiplier values of x2-x3
- Grave 2 – 9 Free Spins and Random Multiplier values of x3-x4
- Grave 3 – 6 Free Spins and Random Multiplier values of x4-x5
- Grave 4 – Grave 4 offers a mystery choice option. Here you can get a combination of 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 or 20 Free Spins with x2-x3, x3-x4, x4-x5 or x5 Wild Multipliers.
During Zombie Siege Free Spins, any Wilds are sticky for the duration of the round.
As you can see, the volatility of this one is pretty much up to you. Grave 1 offers a ‘win more often’ experience with more spins but lower multipliers, and Grave 3 is a higher volatility experience with less spins but higher multipliers.
If you fancy your chances, you can go for the mystery option for a chance at 20 Spins with a high multiplier, but on the other end of the scale you could end up with a worse set-up than those offered in Graves 1-3.
When the Wild start stacking up, things start to get immensely exciting with amazing potential.
Cabin Crashers: Buy Feature
Those outside of the UK can benefit from a Bonus Buy option if they want to jump straight into the action.
This comes in at a rather reasonable 75x your stake.
RTP will vary when using the Buy Feature, and it’ll depend on which option you choose.
- Grave 1 – 96.49%
- Grave 2 – 96.50%
- Grave 3 – 96.52%
- Grave 4 – 96.50%
Cabin Crashers: Our Verdict
Quickspin rarely fail to disappoint, and Cabin Crashers is no different with simplistic gameplay that manifests itself into something with big potential.
As the horde comes at you you’ll revel in blowing their brains out for even daring to come within a mile of your quiet sanctuary through gameplay that is very reimiscent of some big names we’ve seen before, like The Dog House. You might be thinking that Cabin Crashers is a million miles away in theme from the quiet suburban quaintness of The Dog House, but the Multipliers and Sticky Wilds aren’t that different, so if you loved that, then you’ll probably love this.
Much like the Dog house, you’ll really want them Wilds to land early within the bonus. If you do then the excitement will build and the blood of rude zombies will be spilled as you aim for Cabin Crashers’ maximum win of 22,141x! Other statistics like the RTP look solid too at 96.49%.
Overall, a solid game from Quickspin. It may not be innovative in the sense that it brings never before seen features to the table, but tried and true is fair enough when coupled with the chance to stick it to the undead.
