Back To Venus is an interplanetary travel-inspired html5 video slot that games developer Betsoft released on April 23, 2020. It is modeled on its prequel titled It Came From Venus (May 2012), wherein commoner Skeeter has had an alien invasion on his plantation.
In the prequel, he protects the alien—a monster Venus flytrap—from a target tracking military unit. In the sequel, the protagonist is an astronaut returning the extraterrestrial creature—it came in a flying saucer— to its Venusian homeland via a spaceflight amid impact events.
Betsoft-owned Monster Pop (March 2020), Alkemor’s Tower (November 2015), Arrival (May 2011), and Out of this World (August 2011) are relatable. Back To Venus’ rival games include Chibeasties (June 2015) from Yggdrasil, Aliens (November 2014) from NetEnt, and Cosmic Invaders (March 2014) from 2by2 Gaming.
Ten symbols (astronaut Skeeter, monster Venus flytrap, flying saucer, barn, alien flower, crop circle, A, K, Q, and J) require three, four, or five winning combinations.
Back To Venus Game Characteristics
Back To Venus’ 5X3 grid is set on an UFO landing site in alien enthusiast Skeeter’s farm. Its orange, double-framed grid contains teal reels, with yellow partitions.

Back To Venus has three special symbols and eight ordinary symbols. Special symbols: the substitute is a repopulating rhomboid gray-and-red “wild” asteroid; a locking rhomboid gray-and-red “wild” asteroid, with vines twinning on it; and a free games-triggering spotted orange-and-purple “bonus” rocketship.
Ordinary symbols: smirking astronaut Skeeter in a gray space suit; teethed monster Venus flytrap; lit flying saucer; vined orange-and-white barn; exotic flower with saucer-like flower heads; green-and-yellow crop circle; orange A; blue K; green Q; and red J.
