Forget the remake, it’s the Robocop movies from the 1980s that were massive hits. Robocop seemed to be everywhere, he even rescued the wrestler Sting from a cage by simply bending the bars. Ok that moment wasn’t Robocop’s finest but this slot from Playtech certainly is. It’s an action-packed game with plenty of bonus features and opportunities to get big cash wins.
The movie tells the story of police officer Alex Murphy who is brutally murdered and then reborn as Robocop, a superhuman cyborg law enforcer. Basically, a more pleasant Cyberman really. The backdrop to this game shows his home, Delta City where ‘the future has a silver lining.’ Probably not if you’re a villain faced with Robocop. It’s a great look and makes this an awesome game to look at.
‘Robocop’ is a five-reel game that has three rows of symbols and a total of 25 pay-lines. That’s a fixed amount so no need for any genetic engineering to work out how many to activate. You do need to work out your stake and that’s easily achievable via the control buttons situated underneath the reels. The minimum cost of playing this slot is 0.25 and the maximum 25.
Symbols in the game include several characters from the movie. There’s Robocop of course, his partner, Office Anne Lewis, his boss at OCP, a massive gun and a police car. Surprisingly it’s not Robocop that is the wild in this slot but if you get five of his symbol on a pay-line that wins you 1000x your line bet. Five of his partner wins you 750x your line bet so that’s well worth looking out for.
The wild symbol is the word WILD on a silver logo. If you can get five of those on a pay-line, that wins you the top prize of 2500x your line bet and even four gets you a healthy 500x. It can also boost your account balance by getting you wins by substituting for other symbols. It can replace all of them apart from the Robocop badge which is the scatter symbol in this game. More about the scatter in a moment.
This game is packed with bonus features and not all of them need to be triggered. There are four that can appear randomly. Firstly, there’s the Shootout Spin where a wild symbol is dispatched onto the reels and will hopefully create a winning combination. Next up is the Robot Attack Spin with an ED-209 Big Wild symbol added to the reels. If the Line Up Spin feature comes along then each winning line is enhanced with two multipliers. Finally, there’s the OCP Bonus when you enter the OCP offices and must choose similar symbols to win cash prizes.
Now for the bonus features in the game and these are triggered by getting three of the scatter symbols on the first, third and fifth reels (the only three they appear on). Once that has been achieved you can choose which feature to play or go for a random one. Basically, the available features are boosted up versions of those randomly triggered ones, a little bit of a lack of invention but there are still big wins to be had.
With the boosted Shootout Spin feature you now get five free spins with wild symbols added on the second to fourth reels. There are ten free spins available in the Shoot Out Free Spins and random wilds on the reels to boost chances of winning combinations. When it comes to the Line Up Free Spins there are 15 to play with and two multipliers that can certainly get that account balance of yours rising. Finally, there’s the OCP Bonus where this time wins are multiplied by 5x, a handy result if ever there was one especially if the higher value symbols come along.
With so much happening in this slot, it’s even more important than usual to be accessing the paytable. That’s packed with information about the game, so read that and then have some free games to see how all those bonus features pan out. This is an easy game to operate with all the control buttons underneath the reels and it’s also possible to set an autoplay.
You will have a great time playing this, so why not try out some other slot games with similar gameplay. For example, try out ‘Lucky Duck’ from Capecod Gaming. A slightly different subject matter but that game also has 25 pay-lines, an only slightly lower RTP and the chance to win free spins with extra wilds added. Also spend some time playing the Novomatic slot ‘Sinderella’, another 25-payline game that sees you looking out for the extra wilds in the free spins round and has three triggered bonus features.
The movie was full of action and so is this Playtech slot version. The look of the game is highly impressive and there’s a good soundtrack. The random features will keep your account balance ticking over as will the free spins with all those extra wilds and multipliers so this is definitely a game to play.
