The trend of brand new slots releases on a monthly basis continues at Microgaming, as June is the month where one of the most highly anticipated new games of recent times lands at their partner casinos in the form of Terminator 2. The game looks all set to be a real blockbuster, just like the movie and you’ll know from the company’s most recent branded releases, such as The Dark Knight Rises, that they know a thing or two about translating great movies to the reels.
Indeed, there are a fair few similarities between this game and other recent branded slots from the company, starting off with the fact that while it is completely standalone in terms of jackpots, the prizes are still well up there with the best that the industry has to offer. The action also takes place across the conventional reel layout with 243 ways to win the betting system of choice. The game is also truly outstanding due to the visuals on offer, as Microgaming has made full use of the movie rights to include authentic sounds, animations and clips that will really set the scene for any fan of the Terminator series. The slot is literally jam packed with different scenes from the original movie and purists will be pleased to know that they are taken from the remastered version, so they’re just as crisp and clear as the symbols on the reels.
The symbols consist of all the major characters from the movie, including John and Sarah Connor, the T1000 and of course the Terminator in both his skeletal android and Arnie forms. Whenever one of them forms a winning combination, you’ll see the symbol spring to life – the T1000 for example will switch from his human form and start walking towards the player in his liquid metal guise while John Connor’s symbol brings the famous motorcycle scene to the reels.
The features on the game kick off with the T-800 vision game, where the reels turn infrared and the icons in view all have a prize amount attached to them. Random symbols are selected in order to add cash prizes to your bankroll, while one symbol will also trigger the free spins round. That’s not the only way to grab free spins either, as three scatters in view will also launch a bonus round.
There’s more to the free games than initially meet the eye, and you’ll see that the reels expand to four rows for starters. This is to accommodate an enhanced line-up of 1,024 ways to win, meaning huge prizes every time you reach the round. The game also makes use of the shape shifting functionality of the T1000, as when he lands on the reels he will automatically shift into the guise of another beneficial symbol, effectively acting as a wild card.
The branded action on the Terminator 2 slot is rounded off by the fact that five of a kind not only pays out some cracking prizes, but will also trigger a specific scene from the movie which will absolutely thrill fans. The game will be hitting screens at the top Microgaming casinos such as All Slots and Platinum Play on the 4th of June so be sure to check out our casino reviews to decide which destination will be right for you!
