Gremlins Slot Review – Red 7 / Scientific Games

Scientific Games have gone somewhat quiet since their release of ‘Montezuma Megaways’ in January. However, the slot sequel has been a huge success in the casino community. Now the studio has teamed up with Red7, which are now part of the Scientific Games family. The pair have worked together on their first collaborative slot release, using the Warner Bros license SG have acquired. This collaborative slot is titled ‘Gremlins‘, which is available to play now across all sites.

Gremlins is an American horror comedy which was released in 1984. The main character Billy receives a pet ( Mogwai) from his father which comes with three specific instructions. If Billy does not follow these 3 instructions a horde of monsters is unleashed. If you expose it to light you may hurt it, if you get it wet it will multiply and never let them eat after midnight. When they eat after midnight they change, they become clever, mischievous and dangerous. Gremlins 2 was released in 1990.

The slot background looks to be set In Billy’s bedroom. There are posters on the walls, Billys bedroom decor and green gas effects. There are red, yellow and blue lights wrapped around the reel border. The visuals are very impressive with a unique art style to suit the classic movie theme. The studios have represented Gremlins well and used their license on a great movie choice.

Gremlins has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 20 set pay lines. This game is medium variance due to the max win capped at 1,000x per spin and set RTP of 96.47%. You can bet from £0.10 – £100.

This game has 12 symbols in total, this includes 4 low paying symbols. These are represented by J, Q, K and A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by soda cups, popcorn, 3D cinema glasses, TVs and gremlins. In addition to these regular symbols is a stripe wild and gizmo bonus scatter. The wild symbol appears on all reel and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. The highest paying symbol is the stripe wild, which pays 50x for 5 across a pay line. The bonus scatters only appears on reels 1,3 and 5.

Gremlins Slot Review Features

Central to Gremlins is the multiple bonus features. Land a scatter on reels 1,3 and 5 to unlock the ‘Bonus Selector‘. A screen in a cinema with multiple gremlins will appear and eventually, one of five features will land/stop on the screen. The five bonus features are;

Any stripe symbol that lands on reels will remain until the end of the feature. Each stripe symbol contains a cash value which is awarded at the end of the feature. There is a 6th reel set which contains Gizmo multiplier symbols. When a gizmo symbol lands it will multiply cash values by the multiplier shown on the symbol, 2x, 3x and 5x are the possisble multipliers.

Avoid The Sun Free Spins Unlimited Spins – Spins meter starts on 1 and will increase with each spin, When 8 winning spins are achieved, persisting wilds will be activated.

Gizmo Box Hunt – There are 4 levels and 9 boxes to choose from per level. Boxes contain cash values, Level Up or collect. Level up for a nee set of boxes, higher the level the higher the cash rewards. Once collect is found the feature ends and money is collected.

No More Cash After Midnight – Spin the clock to reveal numbers for spaces Gizmo moves on the trail. Each space has a multiplier, which gets bigger further along the trail. If the clock lands on midnight the feature ends.


Overall, I think this game is well-produced and represents classic movies perfectly. Features are centred around the movie story line and visuals are very impressive. Be sure to try the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
