A Cascading Reels Slot Featuring Alien Cows from the Planet Moolah
Imagine the scene. Every news channel on the planet is transfixed on the upcoming alien invasion, as five silver space ships come into view from the earth. The atmosphere on the earth is a mix of excitement, tension and fear, as billions of eyes are fixed on the news channels. Finally, the earth has made contact with aliens. Then you hear a moo! The aliens are a collection of cows. However, these cows have ray guns – they’re not just here to graze.
This WMS designed game is a fun take on an alien invasion, with the following array of features:

Invaders from the Planet Moolah slot machine utilises the cascading reels format. As opposed to the usual ‘spinning’ reels, here all of the symbols fall onto the reels instead. Wins are then awarded in the usual way. However, the winning symbols will then be zapped by the alien cows in their spaceships above the reels. Those symbols will now disappear and the symbols from above will fall into their place, with new symbol appearing at the top of the reels. The reels will now be evaluated again, and any more wins paid out. These winning symbols will once again be zapped.
The above process will continue until the reels offer up no more wins. You do have the possibility of winning any number of times in a turn, and these all come at the cost of just the original spin.
To enter the free spins bonus feature you’ll need to enjoy at least four consecutive wins in a single turn. The minimum four wins will award you with seven free spins, while a fifth win will see 10 free plays awarded. Six or seven wins see the numbers rise quickly to 15 or 25 free spins. Land eight or more wins and you’ll receive the maximum award of 50 free spins.
During the free spins, an alternate and more profitable set of reels are employed, giving you more opportunity for those big wins. You can also retrigger the feature at any time, simply by landing four or more wins in a single turn, just like in the base game.
The free slot Invaders from the Planet Moolah plays out on a 5×3 reel format and features 25 win-lines. A jackpot symbol showing the invading cows is the highest payer, worth 750 coins for the maximum five. The mid paying symbols are a redneck family on a farm. You have grandpa, grandma, a cowgirl, a man holding a cold beer and a dog of course. Each member of the family is worth 500 coins as a top prize. Completing the pay table are the barn, a trailer, a truck, chickens, milk, a mailbox and the outhouse.
The wild symbols contain three different images of cows (earth cows in this case) and these appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. The wilds will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter.
The backdrop to Invaders from the Planet Moolah features a space scene, with a collection of weird and wonderful planets. However, the strangest aspect of the design are the alien cows. Yes, they look like cows, but with an alien makeover, featuring eyes on the end of tentacles in some cases (not the most attractive cows no, if you ever consider cows attractive that is). The combination of the cows and the redneck family give the slot a great sense of humour. The soundtrack is very space age, adding to the surreal feel of the game.
It would have been great to be in the initial meeting about this slot. ‘Hey, I’ve got an idea! Let’s have a slot about alien cows!’ But it seems to be a work of genius, as the game is a very popular one. Invaders from the Planet Moolah is a fun-filled slot from start to finish and if you don’t laugh when playing, you may not be human yourself. With cascading reels and free spins too, the gameplay matches the entertainment, making for a game well worth a spin.
