Arcader Slot Machine
The Arcader slot is a modern take on a retro looking theme which can only be described as a mix of the traditional fruit machine and an old style Space Invaders mixed into one. This all may sound a little outdated, but this is a very original and modern take on both of those ideas, this slot being one of the most unique and enjoyable I have come across recently.
This game, by software house Thunderkick, is set against the backdrop of a planet scene, with meteors falling slowly through the dark sky and planets drifting in and out of view. The reels of the slot shoot out of the ground of the planet, standing proudly in the middle of the screen. Each reel is made up of a huge number of small pixels and these pixels change colour to show the symbols, each symbol being a bright splash of colour. The symbols are those seen traditionally on classic slots such as the cherry, the bell and the sevens, although you’ll never have seen them pixelated like this before. The accompanying sound at the slot is excellent, a retro electronic soundtrack plays all the time and a female, slightly robotic voice welcomes each win.
This slot has two distinct features – the bonus game where you’ll receive free spins and wilds with a difference and the mystery bonus round.
How To Play Arcader by Thunderkick
Thunderkick’s slot machines are built to be really easy to play and the Arcader slot is no exception. Apart from the manual and Auto Play spin controls, this slot only features one additional betting control which determines the size of your total stake. Press the chip button on your bottom-right to choose a wager and then hit the spin control to start playing for real money. You have 13 bet sizes to select from, starting with a minimum of 0.20 credits per spin and going up to a maximum of 100 credits.
The slot gives you 15 fixed paylines to win your prizes on which you can see by pressing the menu button in your bottom-left corner and opening the paytable. Inside the paytable, you’ll likewise find all the symbols in the game and their prizes but also a list of all the bonus features. The slot has eight symbols, all of which are pixelated versions of classic fruit machine icons which pay in credits. With the bottom-paying icons, you can expect prizes of 0.2-1.8x your bet, per sequence, while the top-paying symbols can give away payouts of up to 20x your bet. However, these are only the base prizes. Trigger some of the multiplier and mystery game bonuses, though, and you’ll get a special chance to collect wins that are much more attractive.
The Arcader slot machine is also available to any player who wants to use a tablet or a smartphone to play on the move at the best mobile casinos. Like any Thunderkick slot, Arcader is an HTML5 game that can work on both iOS and Android devices, offering you the same controls and experience no matter if you’re playing on a computer or a phone.
Arcader Free Spins and Gameplay Features
One thing most online slot players will love about the Arcader slot machine is that it replicates the gameplay of old arcade games, to a certain degree. The prizes are given as usual, each time you collect three or more matching symbols on any payline, in a left-to-right sequence. You also have wild symbols that substitute for the base icons, allowing to you complete sequences and trigger more wins. But where things get really interesting is when you trigger some of the bonus features.
The first special feature offered to you is the free spins bonus game, which you can win access to by collecting three or more of the bonus scatter symbols. Three of these icons can trigger 9 free spins with a 1x multiplier but five of them will give you the same number of bonus rounds + a more exciting win multiplier of 9x. As an added benefit, you’ll also get a sticky wild symbol on any of the three central reels during each free spins you play. And if you get some of the expander symbols during the feature, you can also duplicate icons over an entire reel for a chance to collect some really attractive wins.
Another bonus you can trigger when playing for real cash is the Mystery Bonus game. You can activate this feature by collecting three or more of the mystery symbols. Once active, this game will produce a full screen of question mark (?) icons that you have to click until you hit a blank. Each symbol you’ll reveal will give you a base prize of 2-18x your bet. And if you activate the feature with five mystery symbols, you’ll also get a 6x multiplier for these prizes, allowing you to win up to 108x your bet per symbol!
Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots
Arcader is not overloaded with bonus features. While some gamers may think this has a negative impact on the game’s odds, this certainly isn’t true for Arcader. The Thunderkick slot game provides players with both continuous wins and wins that are of a high enough amount. Of course, Arcader does not match some of the modern jackpot slots in terms of potential winnings, but it is such a pleasant game to play, it need not. The fun when playing Arcader makes up for this. Given that game includes a great pick game, it offers a great balance between fun and wins. For that reason, I would recommend playing, so long you are having fun. Along the way, you are bound to hear some fun, and naturally, retro sounds to indicate that you’ve hit a good win.

Four good reasons to love Arcader:
- Perfect visuals and sound effects: you imagine yourself back in a classic video game arcade of the 80s.
- The game is fast and entertaining and includes various bonuses, expanding wilds and stacked symbols.
- The bonus game can yield extremely high payouts, provided the Wilds drop on the right spot.
- Old school cool, we love retro style slots.
With its retro design and good range of extras, Thunderkick has come up trumps once again with Arcader. The visuals are superbly done and the ‘I can’t believe it’s not Kraftwerk’ synth soundtrack is an ideal match. As far as volatility goes, Arcader sits in the medium range and offers wins of 1,600 times your bet on each free spin.
Developers are always looking to breathe fresh life into the classic fruit machine genre – in Arcader, Thunderkick has done a pretty good job of doing just that. If you like the theme, Playtech’s Space Invaders is worth trying.
