This five reel, twenty five pay line video slot is a comedic take on the Alien crash site of Roswell New Mexico, and Area 51. Only this time the game has been called Area 21. It is a production from Amaya Gaming and Cryptologic that marries a slot to the game of Blackjack. There is a top base game jackpot prize of 2000 coins, but also ways to win big bonus bucks too.
Five reels have been set into a completely alien neon backdrop, filled with bright colours, bling, and futuristic buildings. In Area 21 – the slot - we humans are visiting another world, and we are the aliens. It appears to replicate a casino type of setting, where icons used are a wild that is hard to describe, but still substitutes for other symbols. There is an Alien lady dressed in green, she is the Blackjack croupier; two different Maliens (male aliens), a ringed planet, and card indices Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten and Nine. The scatter is the Area 21 logo.
The payer is able to choose how many pay-lines they wish to have active, from one through five, ten and twenty five. This slots offers a coin bet range of between 0.01 and 20.00 which would make a maximum wager across all the pay-lines, 500.00, which is pretty steep as far as we are concerned. However, low-rollers can spin these reels too with many choices in much smaller bets. An auto spin feature is also available, and it offers advanced features too.
The bonus game is activated by playing a game of Blackjack with against the female alien croupier. Landing three or more of the scatters will trigger this. The player is invited to take on the dealer, and if they win this determines the amount of free spins to be awarded, together with the size of multiplier. This reviewer won and receive ten free spins with a three x multiplier.
If the player loses the hand of Blackjack, all is not lost as they are still awarded ten free spins with a two x multiplier. The better the blackjack hand or hands (these can be split and doubled down), the bigger the amount of spins awarded x three. If the player lands a Natural Blackjack then twenty five free spins are awarded and these are all multiplied x five.
