The thought of a zombie invasion is enough to make you build a bunker beneath your house and start stocking up on tinned food and water. However, you'll want to dust off the welcome mat and throw the front door open for the cast of the new Zombie Hoard slot from Slingshot Studios and Microgaming. Not only are they a very friendly bunch, but they can also bring you prizes worth over 2,300 times your bet!

Our Verdict:

Because Zombie Hoard has been produced exclusively for Microgaming by a game designer called Slingshot Studios, which happens to be the same company that made Cash of Kingdoms, a great deal of effort has been put into both the graphics and the sound effects. The result is a mock-horror-themed title that'll have you chuckling at the zombies' comical capers.

The Free Spins Bonus in the Zombie Hoard slot game encourages you to collect brain tokens to win extra free spins, and stacked wild symbols appear in both the base game and the bonus round.


The Zombie Hoard slot caters for low-to-mid-stakes players, and you can change your bet size at the start of the game or in between spins provided it's a value that falls between 9p and £45.

The playing area of Zombie Hoard is made up of five reels, nine fixed paylines, and three rows of symbols, upon which you'll see various symbols appearing each time that the reels stop spinning. There are four different zombies – a red-haired nurse, a blonde bride, a policeman, and a judge. You can also win cash prizes by landing three or more playing card symbols or the Zombie Hoard game logo from left-to-right on an active payline.

The lilac background of the Zombie Hoard slot game shows a large city with police cars parked along the streets as if they're responding to a national emergency. Green zombie arms can be seen clutching the reel set, and there are wonderfully spooky sound effects and music to listen to as you play. At the lower-right, there are clickable controls that let you alter how much you wish to wager per spin, look at the pay awards and rules, turn on Auto-Play, and mute the sounds.

Wild Symbol:

The Zombie Hoard logo is used as the wild symbol, and it's able to create and enhance wins by replacing any symbol apart from the scatter. The wild can also appear stacked on the third and fourth reels in the base game to improve your chances of winning prizes.

Bonus Features:

The Zombie Hoard slot has one main bonus feature – the Free Spins Bonus. To unlock it, you must get three or more of the Brain to scatter symbols to land anywhere on the reels. You can collect up to 34 free games in total, and each new scatter that appears gives you one extra free spin.

The bonus game applies a 2x win multiplier to all prizes won, and the full stacks of wild symbols can appear across all five reels rather than just three.
