Play’n Go launches Captain Xeno’s Earth Adventure

Captain Xeno’s Earth Adventure is another out-of-this-world Dynamic Payways slot game from Play’n GO. Play’n GO has been on a roll with their splitting symbol feature, and the concept gets another spin in Captain Xeno’s Earth Adventure, an online slot

The studio has acquired a strong affinity for the splitting device, which has appeared in titles such as Shimmering Woods and The Last Sundown. Captain Xeno’s Earth Adventure leans slightly closer toward the latter, as it is also a sci-fi themed slot, though not quite as dark as The Last Sundown’s dystopian setting. The splitting symbol feature is combined with a gang of feisty aliens, Electric Shocks, Emergency Wilds, Engine Recharges, and free spins in this game.

Captain Xeno

The first is Captain Xeno, who resembles a huggable Davy Jones, complete with tentacles and eye patches. He takes a motley crew from an off-world conquest to earth in order to repair his ship – without being noticed by the planet’s populace. The standard game is set in a stony desert-like environment, with the reels positioned at the back of the Captain’s spaceship before switching to a tripping-at-lightspeed perspective for the free spins. The game has a joyful, Guardians of the Galaxy atmosphere to it; at least on the surface; things may not be as welcoming on the inside.

This dual character is largely owing to a highly volatile mathematical model, which Play’n GO has scored as a perfect 10 out of 10. Consult the game’s documentation to determine the specific RTP version you’re playing, as Captain Xeno’s return value is adjustable. The optimal rate is 96.2 percent, which can fall into the low 90s depending on the market. Finally, gamers can now repair Xeno’s spacecraft on any device, with stakes ranging from 20 cents to £/€100 every spin.

On a five-reel, four-row gaming panel, players have 1,024 opportunities to win — at least initially. Once symbols begin splitting, the number of possibilities to win increases to a maximum of 100,000 at maximum splitting capability. The low payouts are offset by sci-fi-inspired 10 to Ace royals, which award wins worth 0.3 to 0.4 times the bet for five of a kind. Additionally, five high-paying symbols appear on the reels: Atom, Drox, Boon, Chief Mechanic Filla, and Captain Xeno. When five premium symbol combinations appear, players receive payouts ranging from one to three times their wager. Additionally, wild symbols may appear anywhere and have the same value as the greatest premium while also substituting for all symbols except the scatter.


Splitting symbols result in some astonishing reel expansion qualities, significantly expanding the number of chances to win. Along with the basic mechanic, there are base game variations and free spins, the latter of which utilizes a collection mechanism to boost the splitting power of symbols.

Shock With Electricity

This feature randomly selects one symbol type as the splitting symbol. All instances of this symbol type that are visible in the view are divided into two. This might be anything other than scatters or wild symbols.

Emergencies in the Wild

1-5 wild symbols may be added to the reels during any normal spin. When this occurs, a win is almost certain.

Refueling the Engine

In addition, two scatter symbols may be added to the reels on any normal spin to improve the likelihood of players triggering the free spins bonus round.

Bonus Spins

Three, four, or five scatters provide eight, ten, or twelve free spins, accordingly. The first advantage of free spins is that they increase players’ chances of landing splitting symbols. Additionally, the scatter symbols that trigger the bonus round are gathered in the scatter collector and carried over to the free spins round. Any additional scatters that land during free spins are also added to the scatter collector. Filling the scatter collector now enhances the splitting symbol function and grants additional free spins. When seven scatter symbols are gathered, splitting symbols are multiplied by three and an additional four free spins are won. If four more scatters are gathered, dividing symbols continue to split into four and an additional four free spins are awarded. Scatters are deleted from the reels once the collector reaches this level.


Beginning with the electric shock feature, this randomly selects one symbol – excluding scatters or wilds – as the splitting symbol, resulting in the splitting of all instances of that symbol into two. Meanwhile, on any spin during the base game, the player may receive between one and five wilds, ensuring a win.

Moving on to the engine recharge feature, this increases the player’s chances of activating the free spins bonus by randomly adding two scatters to the reels during any basic game spin. Finally, players must land three, four, or five scatters to earn eight, ten, or twelve free spins, accordingly. When this feature is triggered, players have a greater chance of earning splitting symbols. Additionally, all triggering scatters are added to the scatter collector and carried over to the bonus round, along with any additional scatters landing.

If the scatter collector is filled, the splitting symbol feature is enhanced, offering more spins: collecting seven scatters splits symbols into three, awarding four additional spins; collecting four further scatters splits symbols into four, awarding four additional spins. Scatters are deleted from the reels once the collector reaches this level.

Charlotte Miliziano, Head of Games, explained: “Sci-fi themes and alien characters allow for experimentation with graphical styles and storytelling. Every detail, from storyline points to Wilds, has been considered in relation to the tale and its impact on the player throughout the game.”
