The Alien Hunter Slots game can be found at Playtech casinos. Playtech do not publish the house edge of their games, however several established Playtech casinos have started releasing this information and on the CasinoMeister forum, the Boyle Casino Manager confirmed that Playtech slots games are not configurable at the operators end. As such, it is possible to identify that the house edge of Alien Hunter is between 2.31-9.07% and should be valid at all Playtech casinos.
Poster 'thelawnet' from the CasinoMeister and Wizard of Vegas message boards has looked at these figures for the Dollar Ball and believes there to be an error. By their calculations given the seed level (10000 coins) and contribution rate (10%) the figures should be 36.43% at the point where the Jackpot is reset and the average house edge across all Jackpot values would be 26.43%. The house edge at any given point is dependent on the Jackpot size with a larger jackpot resulting in a smaller house edge.
The Alien Hunter has the most dangerous job in the universe.
Alien Hunter had 5 reels, 25 paylines and you can bet 10 coins on each of the paylines.
The ‘Caged Alien’ symbol is wild.
There are four bonus features when playing Alien Hunter. The first bonus feature is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Alien Hunter Spaceship’ symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be awarded a random number of complimentary spins.
The second bonus features is activated when you receive the ‘Alien Egg’ symbol on both reels 1 and 5. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing 15 alien eggs. Pick eggs one at a time to reveal prizes. If you reveal a ‘Super Egg’ to double all your prizes you receive after the Super Egg. You continue picking eggs until you find the alien at which point you collect your winnings and return to the reels.
The third bonus feature is activated when you receive the 3 or more of the ‘Alien Hunter’ bonus symbol in a row on an active payline anywhere on the reel. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing aliens popping up and down. You have 15 seconds to catch 6 aliens. This feature accounts for the variation in house edge – the better you are at catching aliens the lower the overall house edge of this game. Something to consider is that red aliens are worth the most, then blue and finally green. Our advice would be to play this game in free play mode and get some practice at playing the bonus feature before you play for real money as skill makes a huge difference to the house edge.
The fourth bonus feature is the Dollar Ball feature. You activate this feature by click the Dollar Ball logo at the top right of the reels. When you activate this feature you select five numbers from the numbers 1-49. When you spin the reels some symbols come out with numbers attached. The more numbers that match the numbers you picked the more you win. The house edge of this side game/bonus feature is 27.59% - there is no other description for this other than suicidal.
With some great bonus features and a house edge that is genuinely affected by skill – as is confirmed by Boyle Casino – Alien Hunter is a fantastic game as long as you avoid the Dollar Ball side game.
