For the sake of this write-up, we will be using Playtech’s automatic bet limit and currency of €5 to highlight the symbols payouts.
Traditional A-10 royal symbols are used in the title as the low value symbols in the game, offering players between €1 and €20, depending on the number of matching symbols that land in a single spin.
Moving up higher in value, both Beth and Daryl Dixon provide the player between €2 and €40 the player’s value, again, depending on what symbols land in one spin.
Michonne offers players between €3 and €50 and Negan provides €4 and €60 the stake placed.
Rick Grimes is the title’s highest paying regular symbol. This offers €5 for three matching symbols and €100 for a five-of-a-kind win.
Alongside the regular symbols, the game includes a wild, which offers the same payouts as Rick, while also substituting for all symbols except the scatter. The scatter is used to activate the free spins.
The title comes with a Wild Walker symbol, which substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. This appears in the base and free spins, except during the sticky wilds free spins and the coin bonus game.
Any spin resulting in a winning combination triggers the split reel feature. This shifts all reels from either reel one, two or three.
During the base game, if the player lands three or more scatter symbols it will trigger the free spins mode. Once activated, the player will receive either 10, 15 and 25 walking wild free spins. If an additional two symbols land, the game will retrigger.
Each spin that results in a win will trigger a respin with a wild walker displayed on any of the reels. With each spin, the wild walker moves one position to the left. This continues until it leaves the grid.
The game also includes a feature select screen that consists of five walker heads hanging from a tree. These offer walking wild free spins, multiplier free games, super stacked and coin modes.
In the multiplier mode, each spin resulting in a win triggers the split reel feature. If a wild walker lands on any of the reels, it will appear with a x2, x3 or x5 multiplier.
Alternatively, during the super stacked mode, before the round commences, a symbol is chosen randomly to appear super stacked on the reels throughout the feature. This symbol can not be the scatter.
The sticky wild round sees any wild that lands in the mode stick in position for the remainder
In the coin bonus game, when triggered with four or five scatters, the game is played with a x3 or a x5 win multiplier, respectively. This feature is played on a 5×5 grid with a walker in the middle acting as a divider.
In this feature, a special reel set consisting of blank spaces, bronze, silver or gold coin, bonus, x2 and x3 multiplier symbols is used.
When two or more coins of the same type appear on either side of the walker, a payout is awarded for each coin that landed:
- Each bronze coin pays x0.40 the total bet.
- Each silver coin pays x0.60 the total bet.
- Each gold coin pays x1 the total bet.
