People often fear what would happen if an advanced alien race attacked Earth. And WGS Technology's Green Meanies brings these fears to life as ruthless outer-space creatures attack our planet. Based on the background, which shows aliens attacking a farm, not even cows are safe from these invaders. Does this 5-reel, 25-payline game offer more than just this fun theme to hold your interest? You can see below as we cover Green Meanies' symbols, betting and features.
Symbols and Betting
Symbols in this game include a TV, ray gun, cracked planet, one-eyed plant, Hostage (screaming woman), a Green Meanie and generic letters. The symbol graphics are above average, and there are just enough unique symbols to make this slot fun. You'll also see a couple cool animations, including the screaming Hostage being whisked away by a green monster, and the Green Meanie disappearing into a flying saucer.
As for betting, you can change paylines from 1-25 and coin size from $0.01 - $10.00. This makes the lowest wager $0.01 per spin and the max bet $250.00. Green Meanies is not unique or sophisticated enough to draw a lot of high rollers, but the betting range is still nice. You can also use Autospin and Bet Max buttons to speed up the wagering process.
Green Meanies Features: Free Spins and Multipliers up to 100x
This slot has a few special features, beginning with the Green Meanie wild and Hostage scatter. The Green Meanie only appears on reels 2 and 4, substituting for everything except the Hostage scatter. The Hostage multiplies payouts whenever she appears two or more times anywhere on the reels. When this happens, you can expect your payout to increase by 2x (2 symbols), 5x (3 symbols), 20x (4 symbols) and 100x (5 symbols).
If the Green Meanie appears on reels 2 and 4 at the same time, it expands to cover these two reels in wild symbols. You'll then receive 5 free spins with these expanded wilds in place. We've seen free spins with expanded wilds in other WGS games, and it's nice that they're in Green Meanies too.
Play Green Meanies on Your Smartphone or Tablet
You can watch this alien takeover play out through your Android, iOS Apple or Windows device. Of course, Green Meanies is also available through Flash (instant play) on a PC and Mac as well.
In conclusion, this is far from the first alien-themed slot. But Green Meanies takes an interesting invasion angle that isn't overly cliché in slots. We like the quirky symbols along with the few animations that are available. It's also nice that you can get free spins with expanded wilds. Green Meanies unfortunately doesn't have any second-screen bonuses or cool cutscenes. But it does offer enough to keep one entertained for an hour or so.
