The recently released Lost Vegas was not the first zombie themed online pokie from Microgaming. There is a video pokie titled Alaxe in Zombieland that is available on the instant play desktop portfolio of Microgaming powered Australian online casinos like All Slots and Royal Vegas. Literary minded online casino players love Alaxe in Zombieland because it fantastically integrates the characters and icons from Alice in Wonderland with a zombie visualisation.
The reels are appropriately set in a graveyard and the eerie background music adds to the zombie atmosphere. Alaxe, the equivalent of Alice, awards the highest line payouts. In the win animation you can see her play a game of croquet using a pink flamingo as a stick. The Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter and the Dormouse are the other characters from the classic novel that appear as symbols on the reels, presented with a zombie look. The low paying symbols are playing card icons displayed on tombstones. The Eat Me cake, looking like a brain, is the wild symbol.
There are three scatter symbols that drive the video pokie forward. Each of them awards scatter payouts multiplied by the total bet and also activates a separate bonus feature. The White Rabbit’s pocket watch is the first scatter symbol. It activates the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party feature. You will be asked to select one of the scatter symbols on the reels, which will reveal the number of tea pots that you can pick. Each tea pot awards a number of free spins and a payout multiplier. The awarded free spins are then played out. The free spins can be retriggered.
The key that Alaxe uses to enter Zombieland is the second scatter symbol. It triggers the Red Queen Adventure bonus game on the second screen. The screen displays five tombstones with five white roses and a value inscribed on each. You select three roses from the first tombstone. They convert to blood red roses and reveal a bonus value. If this is greater than the displayed value you move to the next tombstone. You collect the bonus awarded for each tombstone that you clear. If you manage to pass all five tombstones then you get to play the escape level game. If you select the right door, you win a multiplier for the bonus credits earned. The wrong door leads to the Red Queen waiting to chop your head off. The Drink Me bottle is the third scatter symbol. It activates a bonus feature in which you select gravestones and win bonus credits.
