There seems to be something strange going on in the fields over in the Midwest – and nobody can quite figure out what it’s all about. That is, of course, until it’s uncovered that a team of aliens are using a tractor beam to pick up and put down a string of poor farm animals who aren’t quite sure what’s going on.
It all sounds a bit bizarre, but our aim today is to delve deep into the world of Nolimit City’s Tractor Beam slot game.
Set in the dead of night on this seemingly innocent farm, the eerie backdrop is somehow balanced out by certain dark humour that makes the whole experience all the more enjoyable. There is a standard 5×3 reel layout system with 20 paylines to work your way through, but of course, the story is much more complicated than that.
In addition to playcard symbols that have been written on planks of wood in some sort of horror film tribute, we also have the themed animals – including the chicken, sheep, pig and cow.
The return to player (RTP) percentage is an important figure within the slot industry and likely always will be, regardless of whether or not you actually put that much stock into it. The same is true for the Tractor Beam slot game with the reported RTP coming in at 96.01%. We’d say that is slightly below the standard average, but the volatility is high, which means you need to prepare yourself for some big payouts – so long as you’re willing to be patient, of course.
You can begin your journey with a minimum stake of $/€/£0.20 if you so wish, working all the way up to $/€/£100 if you’re feeling daring. Plus, with potential winnings of 3,408x your initial stake, there are plenty of ways to make some headlines.
Visually speaking this is a gorgeous slot that probably deserves its own TV show courtesy of the animation, the beaming streaks of light that make up the reels and the attention to detail.
In terms of the bonus features, there’s a lot to unpack.
Clone Attack – this can be triggered at random, and in this feature, between 1 and 4 reels will be filled with stacks of the same animal symbol.
Beam ‘Em Up – this removes the lower value symbols from play meaning that all you’ll be left with is the high-value symbols as well as the wilds.
Abduction Spins – If you land three, four or five scatters on the same spin you will receive between 7 and 12 free spins. A winner will lead to a symbol being abducted from the reels, sticking with the theming very well, and every time a scatter lands your experience will be extended with another free spin.
The Tractor Beam slot game is a triumph and we aren’t just saying that for the sake of it. From the entertaining storyline to the addictive gameplay, Nolimit City have done a wonderful job. It may be a bit silly but with such high stakes being put on the line for the possibility of big winnings, we’d say that aspect only adds to the fun.
