We don’t know about you, but we’re always down for a little bit of zombie murder! But hacking and slashing them manually gets exhausting after a while. So if you’re looking for a more relaxed version of destroying shambling horrors, we’ve got the perfect slot for you! Based on EA’s widely popular Plants Vs Zombies video game, this game brings the battle to your backyard. Can you withstand the invasion?
The first thing that we noticed about the visuals is that they’re slightly outdated. IGT’s release also takes slight liberties with symbol designs, but it’s nothing that’ll ruin your enjoyment. That said, we do like how the user interface was designed to fit in with the Plants Vs Zombies look the slot has. Compared to some games we’ve reviewed, however, this release still holds up quite well. It doesn’t look so bad that you won’t be able to play it, so have no worries there!
But where this slot truly shines is its gameplay! The developers went out of their way to ensure the game feels similar to play as the real deal. The 5x3 board with 243 ways to win lends itself well to represent the field on which you usually fight the zombies. Plants that land on the board will then trigger different effects. But during some of the special features, it’ll feel like you’re playing the actual video game! The only difference is that you’re at the mercy of luck and can’t position the plants. Then again, that’s a small price to play if it means winning one of the progressive jackpots!
It’s clear IGT wanted the layout to fit the theme. There’s light patches of dirt on the buttons, and their colours blend in well with the background image. Well, all except the orange total bet, but good enough! As there are 243 ways to win instead of paylines, there’s no requirement to turn those on or off. Which means IGT’s release allows you to directly change your total stake, no questions asked! You can bet between GBP 0.50 and GBP GBP 2.50 on each spin. Not the best betting spread, but it gets the job done.
Progressive jackpots are clearly the king of this slot. As much as we like the gameplay of Plants vs Zombies: Backyard Showdown, it wouldn’t attract anyone if it had a bad maximum win. So the developers made sure to go all out and include three progressive jackpots! But the pleasant surprises keep coming, as we also know the RTP of this game. Accounting for the aforementioned progressive jackpots, it’s 96.15%, which beats the average of 96%.

Depending on what icons you collect, you will win different special features. Two bonus symbols and a Win The Spin icon will trigger that bonus. Here, you pick whether the zombies or plants will win the round. For the plants to win, they need to kill all the zombies. But if even one zombie gets through, they win. Each time a plant or zombie die, they grant a random cash prize that fill your pockets. If you make three or more correct guesses, you get an extra win, worth between 5x and 200x.
Two bonus symbols and a Graveyard bonus have a chance of activating one of two special features. The first is the Night-time bonus, where you click through tombstones to reveal cash prizes or zombies. Each time you find a zombie, it creeps closer to your house – and after finding enough, they break through to eat your brains. In the Daytime special feature, instead of having sixteen cash prizes, you have eight cash prizes and eight Suns. Each Sun contains three to five suns. Depending on how many suns you collected, you can win the minor, major or grand jackpot.
We were left thoroughly impressed by Plants vs Zombies: Backyard Showdown! It’s both a fun slot in its own right, and a faithful recreation of a video game that charmed thousands. The special features can be quite complex, and keeping track of the different effects the plants and zombies have can be difficult. But once you get the hang of things, you won’t be able to put this slot down!
