The Area 21 slots game can be found at Cryptologic casinos. Cryptologic also lease their slots games out to casinos using other software platforms. Cryptologic do not as standard publish the house edge of their slots games, however several casinos now offering their games – including InterCasino – do supply this information. Given the different information supplied by different casinos it is reasonable to assume that Cryptologic games are configurable and as such the figures in this review should be treated as a guideline only when playing at casinos that do not explicitly state the settings they use.
Alien encounters and blackjack for all.
The Area 21 game has 5 reels, 25 paylines and you can bet one coin on each payline.
The ‘Wild’ symbol is wild.
There is only one bonus feature when playing Area 21 and it is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Area 21 Logo’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you’ll be taken to a new screen showing an alien blackjack dealer. You play a hand of blackjack against the dealer. The outcome of the hand determines how many complimentary spins you’re receive and the multiplier that will be applied to your win. The game advise on the best strategy decisions.
The blackjack bonus feature is a novel way to win complimentary spins and certainly allows the player’s strategy to affect the house edge, but with InterCasino listing the house edge at 5.07%, Area 21 is never going to top the charts.
