One thing you have to admire about the management of Microgaming is that they do give their slot and fruit machine designers the chance to shine in terms of coming up with some bizarre games. The Apocalypse Cow fruit slot is a prime example of this as this game is based on a war hardened cow (not an epsiode of the Simpson's). Since this is a fruit slot, you can expect to find the popular hold and nudge feature as well as a bonus game.

Apocalypse Cow Base Game Features

The base game is relatively straight forward to understand and any time you spin in three matching symbols (which are displayed on the Fruit Machines pay table) you will win that respective multiplier. This is your base stake multiplied by the whatever the winning combination multiplier amount it lands on. This can be anything from x1 to x500 your stake level.

As you play the base game you may get awarded with what are known as Nudges. A nudge allows you to move any reel position downwards one position at a time. The idea behind a Nudge is to try and help you nudge in winning combinations. At the top of each reel is a small triangle. If you click this, that reel will move downwards to help you see what reel symbols are currently out of view!

Holds are another base game feature and the let you lock into position any reel or reels when the Hold lights flash. The reels will remain locked in place for the next spin/game you play.

Apocalypse Cow Bonus Game – When you land three or more of the Scatter symbols (on this slot they are the T-bone steak symbols) you will win the chance to play the bonus game. The bonus games loads on a new screen and is a typical fruit board game.

The object of the game is to of course collect the maximum amount of winnings. In this feature you will spin a reel. When the reel stops it will reveal a number and you will move around the board. Each spot on the board will award you a prize which can include; additional features, cash amounts, nudges or random bonuses. You need to decide to collect any that are offered or risk carrying on working your way around the board in an attempt to win better cash amount or features. Be careful, you risk ending the bonus game at any time should you land on certain positions!

You can trigger the bonus feature again by landing on the “Restart Chance” box. If you manage to win another bonus game, you will automatically re-start the game again.
