Spartans Vs Zombies Slot Review 2023
Special-powered Zombies have invaded the Spartan planet and it’s up to us and the Spartans to evict them in Stakelogic’s latest release, Spartans Vs Zombies!
Super strong and fierce Zombies from outer space? No problem! The Spartans have got this covered. Although outnumbered, these menacing Zombies are no match for the Spartans, who refuse to give me them an inch.
Working together with the Spartans, will we prove to be valuable members of the squad? Let’s play on and find out!
Spartans Vs Zombies Base Game and Features
Spartans Vs Zombies is a 5 reel slot with 20 fixed paylines. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols land from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
£/€0.20 (£/€0.40 Super Stake) per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€100 (£/€200 Super Stake) per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. Spartans Vs Zombies has a theoretical RTP of 96.24%.
In terms of symbols, the two highest paying symbols fall to Spartans and Zombies, followed by a Pantheon, Colosseum, Helmet and Spears. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten. Wilds substitute for all other symbols except Scatters.
Spartans Vs Zombies makes use of Stakelogic’s Multipays feature.
When a winning combination forms on the first 3 reels, its win amount is paid. If the same winning combination continues onto reel 4, it will pay again, and again if it continues onto the 5th reel.
Before you can begin spinning, you will be given the option to activate the Super Stake feature.
Choosing to activate this feature will Double your current bet. Once active, your chances of triggering the Free Spins round are increased.
Spartan & Zombie Meters
During the base game, each time a Spartan or Zombie symbol lands in view, it will be automatically added to their respective Meters on either side of the reel set, awarding 3 Hearts.
With each new base game spin, the Heart symbols in the meter will decrease by 1. Filling the entire meter will automatically trigger Zombie or Spartan Free Spins, depending on which meter is filled.
Both meters will reset if there are no more Heart symbols remaining, or after triggering either Free Spins rounds via the Meter.
Spartan Vs Zombies Free Spins
Depending on which Free Spins round you are awarded, both the Spartan and Zombie Free Spins rounds deliver something different. More on these below!
Spartan Free Spins
Once the Spartan Free Spins round has been triggered, you will be awarded 10 Free Spins with an active x2 Multiplier, and 2 Shield Picks.
Behind each Shield symbol is a random number of additional Free Spins or an Increased Multiplier. Once you have chosen your Shields, the Free Spins round will begin.
During Free Spins, reels 2, 3, and 4 can randomly transform into fully stacked Wild Reels for that particular spin. Landing a Scatter symbol during this time will award an additional +1 Free Spin.
Zombie Free Spins
Triggering the Zombie Free Spins round will award 10 Free Spins.
During this round, with each Free Spin, between 1 and 2 Sticky Wilds can be added to the reels at random. When 2 reel positions are transformed into Sticky Wilds on the same spin, the second Sticky Wild will be given a random Multiplier between x2 and x10.
If a winning combination is formed using 2 Sticky Wilds with Multipliers, both their values will be added together and applied to the win. Landing a Scatter symbol during this time will award an additional +1 Free Spin.

Spartans Vs Zombies: Our Verdict
Spartans Vs Zombies marks a new era for Stakelogic where quality wins over quantity, and we can see the effect it’s had on Spartans Vs Zombies.
In our opinion, Spartans Vs Zombies is fantastic in more ways than one. The graphics here are nothing short of outstanding, and the idea of putting real-life Spartans against fictional Zombies is quite silly, but it works. Spartans have been done before, and so have zombies. The individual genre to which each belong doesn’t evoke too much excitement individually, but together it’s proven quite interesting. Pixies vs Pirates from Nolimit City tried out the idea of pitting two non-related entities against each other, and that too proved to be amusing enough to leave an impression.
What next, we wonder? The possibilities are endless but rest assured that Spartans Vs Zombies owes its appeal to much more than its interesting characters.
Stakelogic has done well to make gameplay both capable and interesting. The Spartan and Zombie Free Spin rounds offer different experiences entirely, and from testing them ourselves we found them both to be rather exciting. In truth, Zombie Free Spins is more capable, but the Stacked Wild Symbols that come with Spartan Free Spins do make it quite appealing.
Our only complaint, and it’s a complaint that we’ve voiced before, is with the Super Stake feature. The function of it is great, but it seems quite expensive to double your bet for an increased chance at Free Spins. Our complaints could be unsubstantiated if Stakelogic has built it in a way that makes it much more likely than say, Pragmatic Play for example, but it’s hard to know for sure. Pragmatic Play usually opts for a marginal increase for a better chance at Free Spins, and we think Stakelogic could benefit from sitting down to think about the cost of such a feature.
Apart from that, Spartans Vs Zombies looks, feels and plays brilliantly. It feels as modern as a new slot should and we’re quite excited to see it in action on stream.
