With out-of-this-world graphics by IGT and a stellar list of bonus features, Little Green Men Nova Wilds offers plenty of intergalactic adventure and a chance to win up to 12,000x your original stake. This 5-reel, 20-ways-to-win online slot machine has been developed with HTML5 technology, so it’s completely mobile-friendly.

When you play slots online you don’t have to be a billionaire to get your six minutes in space. Little Green Men Nova Wilds takes you across the universe to far-off places where you’ll encounter exploding asteroids that transform into royal playing cards, and an array of aliens, robots, helmets, communicators and ray guns, as you fight off an alien invasion starting in Earth’s orbit. So, if you enjoy playing online casino games that have an alien-cosmos theme, this is one of the best out there. Here’s what you want to know before starting to play.

Game overview

Little Green Men Nova Wilds symbols including meteorites, helmets and ray guns against a starry cosmos.

If you regularly play online slots for real money, you’ll recognize Little Green Men Nova Wilds as a sequel to Little Green Men, a popular slot that’s been played in Las Vegas casinos since 1999. With this release over 20 years later, the gameplay and graphics are vastly superior to its predecessor, with fun, theme-appropriate symbols displayed against clear reels to give the effect of a vast and deep galaxy. Even the low-paying playing-card symbols have been given a space-theme treatment as meteors, and the supersonic soundtrack is the perfect accompaniment to the extraterrestrial theme. Interestingly, the highest-paying symbol is the online slot machine’s logo.

How to play

Little Green Men Nova Wilds has 20 fixed paylines to match symbols across. You can choose to start your journey with just 0.20 credits or blast off into outer space by upping your stake to the maximum wager of 400 credits per spin – providing you can afford to play at that level, of course.

You’ll want to keep in mind that for a shot at the prize, you’re likely to need a bigger bankroll as this casino slot game has a medium-to-high volatility, but offers a generous RTP (return to player) of 96.2%.


IGT has hit on a winner when it comes to the graphics for Little Green Men Nova Wilds. The interface is high-definition with smooth, cartoon-style animations, and a frameless game window which gives you the impression that you’re looking through the window of a spacecraft into infinite space.

At the start of the game, you’ll get to know a motley crew of green aliens who scoot across the reels in their equally tiny flying saucers, all with the potential to hand over some space treasure when landed in winning combinations.


This online casino slot has four random features available in the base game as well as free spins.

Horizontal wilds

Land at least 3 symbols in a row and they’ll turn into wild symbols. When landed during free spins play, this feature can grow to fill 2 rows.

Vertical wilds

This feature turns 2 or more filled reels into stacked wilds.

Giant wilds

This feature is triggered when one or two 2x2-sized “giant” wilds appear at random points. During free spins play, they can expand to a 3x3 size.


The respin can only be activated on a winning spin, in which case, all winning symbols are transformed into higher-value symbols.

Bonuses and jackpots

Little Green Men Nova Wilds has an impressive free spins bonus feature, which is triggered whenever you land 3, 4 or 5 scatters, and will reward you with 6, 12 and 24 free spins respectively. The maximum number of free spins that can be retriggered is 120. While playing free spins, the game window expands from a 5x3 layout with 20 lines, to a 5x6 layout with 40 lines. In addition, the modifier will be triggered more often while in this play mode, with the potential to multiply your stake by up to 25,000x.
