Terminator 2 is one of our all time favourite movies (it’s not often that the sequel is better than the original- the Thunderstruck II slot comes to mind), so we were excited to get our hands on the Terminator 2 Slot- and it certainly looks and feels the business, with hi-res video clips from the site and most of the main characters form the film
Terminator 2 Slot Review
Microgaming have a strategy of launching big name games (like the Game of Thrones Slot Machine for example). The Terminator 2 Slot sits well within that range, being themed on the blockbuster movie of the same name, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The game sits within Microgaming’s 243 ways to win range- where most of their premium slots sit. Compare the visuals with some of their older games like Mermaids Millions and you can start to appreciate how things have moved on in slot game development.
There are 5 reels and three rows, with 243 possible winning combinations. You adjust your coin size and bet amount to one that you are comfortable with. It’s an out an out blockbuster movies slot like the Top Gun Slot (also a 243 Ways to Win game, but designed by Playtech rather than Microgaming).
You’ll spot all the main characters from the film plus the scatter (easy to spot- it’s the globe with “Scatter written on it!”) and wilds. There are also spades, diamonds, hearts and clubs. If you land a win, the character will come to life in a hi-res video clip.
The Terminator 2 free spins round is the stand-out aspect to this game- it’s quite innovative. In the free spins round, the ways to win are increased to 1024- an extra row is added to the reels.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is the “old” terminator (the T-800). Occasionally, you’ll slip into T-800 vision mode in which you’ll only need one scatter to trigger the free spins.
The T-1000 Transformation Feature
if you know the film, you’ll know that Arnie battles it out with a newer terminator called the T-1000 which can morph into other shapes and characters with its liquid metal body (played by Robert Patrick in the movie). And in the slot, this theme continues- his symbol can randomly morph into other symbols that line up with them to give you payouts.
An excellent job by Microgaming in bringing this Sci-Fi blockbuster to life in the Terminator 2 slot. We particularly enjoyed the innovative free spins round and the T-800 Vision mode.
