Everybody I know either thinks that aliens are cool or scary, but nobody seems to think of them as being obsessed with the all mighty dollar. That may change if enough people play the Money Mad Martians slot from Barcrest, as the little green guys do their best to traverse the cosmos with you, sucking bucks right into your galactic wallet.
Mad Money Martians is a 5 reel, 10 payline video slot that transports you to space alongside an alien who has a Jetsons-esque style spaceship. With him you'll find an array of symbols, including Jack, Queen, King, Ace, an alien, and a game title screen.
Feature wise, Money Mad Martians includes a respin reel and a pick'em bonus that allows you to select a variety of symbols for bonuses that can end up padding your wallet. The game has a posted payout of 95.1%, which is about average or an online slot, and this value does not scale with high roller bets like in some other Barcrest slots.
I played Money Mad Martians for a few minutes, and was left somewhat jaded by the experience. This is certainly not one of the better Barcrest slots I have played, and I was quickly bored by both the theme and the features present. I also seemed to bleed through my money fairly quickly as well, as I went a long time between wins of any significance. There are certainly better Barcrest games out there, and I'd recommend checking out games like Ooh Aah Dracula if you're looking for something that may grab your interest a bit more.
With that being said, there is a reason that Barcrest ported Money Mad Martians to online casinos, and that is because of their tried and true format that the game fills. If you like older Barcrest slots, this may be just the game for you.
