We kept commenting during our Aliens review about how good the menus alone looked in this game. That’s usually a sign of one of two things, either A) all the developer’s attention went into the graphics and not the game itself or B) it’s a high quality pokie all the way around. With Aliens, it’s 100% a case of B. In fact, it’s one of our highest rated pokies EVER on pokies.com.au.
Scroll down for all the details, but this pokie combines exciting alien-blasting action with some payout possibilities that are hard to wrap your head around. Aliens not only tests your nerve (it actually is kind of tense during the bonus levels) but also your patience since it can seem like you are spinning for quite a while sometimes before anything ‘good’ happens. But budget appropriately and you’ll enter into a world of bonuses that could make it well worth your wait.
The only thing alien to us about Aliens is its out-of-this-world quality in every single category.
Up to 15 free spins possible on level two
Graphics on par with even non-pokie apps
Sound effects that you want to listen to, even on mobile speakers
No app download necessary
Aliens Key features
To be completely honest, this Aliens pokie looks like it could be for a video game console. NetEnt really outdid themselves with this slot, not just in terms of the graphics, but basically with everything else.
In particular, our Aliens online pokies review team couldn’t get enough of:
- Three ‘level’ system with unique features and bonuses on each
- Possible bet multipliers in the thousands (yes, you read that right)
- Winning free games during free games
- Collecting symbols and ammo clips to help you “battle” the aliens
- Graphics and sound effects that completely suck you in
Stunning graphics, huge bet range, large jackpots, and a complex gameplay that are a fan's dream, this game is an all-round winner.
It seems that NetEnt wanted as many people as possible to get a chance to play this masterpiece of a pokie, which is probably why there is such a wide array of bet options. More conservative players can spin at as little as 0.15 per game while high rollers can watch their fortunes swing one way or the other at 150.00 per spin.
The game’s symbols are different-colored aliens taken from or inspired by the film, with the highest paying five-of-a-kind combination landing you 1000 coins. Wild symbols don’t pay out by themselves, but can help you complete paylines. Wilds appear on certain reels at certain times of the game, which will make more sense once you read the next section in our Aliens online pokies review.
Jackpots & Bonus Games
Aliens is really three games in one, with each possessing their own special bonuses and part of the storyline:
Level 1: The Search
This is the pokie’s base game in which you will collect some special symbols with each real money win (and lose some on spins where you don’t win). As you collect these, you will also save up some special wager multipliers which will come in handy later. Speaking of, collecting a net of 10 symbols will advance you to...
Level 2: The Encounter
This is a free spin round where you start off with 10 free games. As your character is now engaged in a firefight with the aliens, ammo clip symbols will appear at random on the middle reel. Every time you spin without a clip showing, one is subtracted from your on-screen counter, and conversely one (or more) will be added to the count when they appear. You can earn more free spins during these free spins, and getting your clip count to +10 before you run out of bonus games takes you to the final stage.
Level 3: The Hive
You are now in a battle to the death against the queen alien, and the duel will start with you having five free spins. For each spin, you’ll hurl a grenade that causes a random amount of damage that is determined based off the multipliers you acquired earlier in the game. You’ll be able to monitor the queen’s health with each spin, and if you manage to eradicate her and the hive, a 240x multiplier on top of your original wager (plus everything else you won during the bonuses) is yours.
It’s of course not that not easy to get to this level of the game. However, if you are one of those lucky players, obviously it’s more than worth it no matter what happens. Even so, our Aliens Touch review people landed some pretty big bet multipliers evein stage two, so don’t make killing the queen the be-all end-all by which you judge this outstanding pokie.

Aliens is part of NetEnt’s mobile touch line. We go into much more detail in our review of Aliens Touch, but the game is a near-perfect port (no app download required) that has kept all the same great features as the PC version including:
- Smartphone-optimized with no need to first download apps
- Clear sound even on small smartphone speakers that you won’t want to mute
- Same three-tiered game system that can lead to massive real cash jackpots
- Quit in the middle of the game then come back and pick up where you left off later
- Looks and feels more like a video game app rather than a mobile pokie
Why Aliens Is Worth Playing
If our review of Aliens hasn’t convinced you already, we simply don’t know what else to tell you. If you need to hear a downside, it’s that the breaks in the real action (getting to level two or higher) can seem somewhat long, but when Aliens hits...it can hit.
- Three tension-filled (in a good way) gameplay levels
- Up to 15 free spins possible on level two
- Graphics on par with even non-pokie apps
- Win over 1000x your original bet by ‘beating’ the game
- No app download necessary
- Sound effects that you want to listen to, even on mobile speakers
