Once in a while you have a dream that doesn't seem to make any sense, leaving you to wonder what the heck was going through your mind when you thought of it. Genesis Gaming's Machine Gun Unicorn slot gave me a similar thought when I first heard of it, as it is perhaps the strangest slot I have ever encountered. Ultimately though despite promise of something magical, it is all a bit bland in terms of the game's features.
Machine Gun Unicorn is a 5 reel, 10 payline video slot that feels like a blend of My Little Pony and The Walking Dead. The game has severed zombie heads in jars, a purple pony, a bloody bat wielding unicorn, fire breathing dragon, and an axe swinging yellow unicorn as its base symbols, while the machine gun unicorn symbol serves as the game's wild symbol. The game's background is bright and cheery, as is the music, but strike up a win and you will see the carnage fly as the unicorns battle the undead in their places.
The slot pays winning lines both left to right as normal as well as right to left and features the above-mentioned wild symbol, stacked symbols, and symbol bombs. Symbol bombs work when the machine gun unicorn appears on the reels and there are zombie head jars present. The machine gun unicorn will then shoot all of the jars, causing the zombie heads to explode and turn into cash prizes that pay out when there are many jars on the reels. This feature helps boost the return to player in the slot to a very healthy 97.2%. Apart from that though, there really isn't anything else to get excited about.
Playing Machine Gun Unicorn is a lot of fun for the first few minutes as you laugh at how silly the theme is, but after a while you might end up being a bit bored by the repetitive gameplay and lack of features. I think that Machine Gun Unicorn stands as more of a novelty game than anything, but it is a game that you should load up at least once to check out.
