The slot has five reels, three rows, and fifteen fixed pay lines. There are three different levels to the game where the aim is to survive alien attacks and reach the queen hive.

Wagering Limits and Game Settings
Up to ten coins can be placed on the fifteen pay lines with values of the coins ranging from denominations of 0.01 up to 1.00.
The game settings are adjustable and can be accessed by clicking on one of the four icons that are found at the bottom left corner. The sound and animations can be turned on or off, the rules of the game or the history can be viewed and the auto play or quick spin features can be activated.
The Standard and Bonus Symbols
The Aliens symbols are a mixture of various types of Aliens and eggs. The wild symbol is represented by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation logo symbol and appears on reels two, three, four and five in the first level and in any position on the reels during the second level. The wild acts as a substitute to help form winning combinations.
The Three Different Game Levels
The first level of the Aliens online slot game is The Search which is the main base game where the aim is to collect multiplier symbols. As these are accumulated they are displayed above the reels in the Alien Activity Meter. The multipliers are worth anything from 2x to 14x. When nine multipliers have been collected the second level of the game is activated. All of the higher valued multiplier symbols will be transferred to the next level.
The second level is The Encounter. This is where the aim is to kill as many Aliens as possible. An overlay appears on the first, second and third reels on every spin. These will come with multipliers dependent on the amount in the Alien Activity meter. After the spin ammo clips are given randomly to use to shoot various Aliens. If there is no ammo the alien will win and the game will return to the first level. Ten steps of shooting will activate the third level.
The Hive is the third level where the aim here is to kill the queen and her eggs. Five re-spins, four ammo clips and a grenade are given. The weapons are used to destroy the hive and the amount of damage is displayed in the Hive Health meter. Four steps are taken to do this and one coin is awarded for each step. If the queen is destroyed a prize multiplier of 240x the wager is awarded.
