Meet the Man
The first thing you’ll notice on this game is the man himself standing next to the reels and watching every move you make. Quips and one liners from the film will scroll across your screen before you take a turn and if you remember this move, they’re sure to raise a smile or two! The 5 reels incorporate a total of 20 paylines. You can reduce the number in play by clicking on either of the arrows in the graphical equaliser on the left hand side of the main screen. You can also adjust the amount you bet with per spin from 0.01 per payline up to the maximum of 25.00. This is equivalent to a total min bet of 0.20 and a total max bet of 500.00.
Be the Best
Robocop is all about creating the very best possible and with this slot, you’ll certainly have access to some of the best bonuses and features around. At the most base level, you’ll have the standard wilds which substitute for other symbols on the reels. But in addition, there’s also a Prime Directive Wild. This only appears on the middle reel and as well as standing in for other symbols will also create new wilds on the board. Any wins which use the Prime Directive wild will be automatically doubled in value.
But there’s far more than just basic scatters and wilds. You’ll also be able to play for a progressive jackpot as well as a creative bonus feature. In the latter you’ll be given a mission which requires you to travel from one location to another targeting the bad guys. You’ll get prizes for every bad guy you take down but if they shoot back your energy level will be depleted. It’s incredibly rare to find a slot which has a bonus feature which is so inventive and it’s all credit to the developers for including this. Aside from the bonus play, also look out for the Delta City symbol on the reels as this can pay out the progressive jackpot if you land five. Even if you only land four you’ll see receive 400 coins as a consolation prize.
If you’re a fan of movie themed slots, there’s a huge range to pick from. But when it comes to futuristic crime fighting and an action packed plot, Terminator II is the obvious companion to Robocop. Microgaming opted to make a slot with this theme, imaginatively titled Terminator II, and here you’ll find Arnie back at his terrifying best, ready to utter the immortal words “I’ll be back”. Microgaming set this game up with the 243 ways to win rather than traditional paylines and there’s also free spins and a bonus feature too, just to round things off nicely.
Beat the Bad Guys
Robocop by Fremantle is a slot which instantly brings the 1980s right into the present day with this reincarnation of a classic movie. The graphics do look rather dated and two dimensional but it doesn’t spoil the enjoyment of the game and if anything, adds to the authenticity. The developer has rammed the slot full of bonus features which are inventive and well designed, as well as adding a progressive jackpot too. For this reason, it’s probably a little too complex for a total newbie to tackle but any experienced player will be in their element.
