Microgaming are renowned for their licensed pokies, and they don’t just focus on the newest films and TV series either. That is perhaps most evident with the release of Terminator 2, licensed from the classic film of the same name, one that has gone down in science fiction history as one of the greatest films ever.
Available on Jackpot City, does this pokie do the film justice?
You will recognise a lot of images from the film used as symbols, with the backdrop assuming a generic “tech” style. There are some cool animations and sounds, and you get the impression that Microgaming have really put some time and effort into this.
There are 243 ways to win on this 5 reel slot, with all of the main character symbols paying the most money.
You can bet as little as $0.30 per spin on Terminator 2, and this goes all of the way up to $30, which covers a wide range of stake levels.
There are a couple of features on this pokie, including the T-800 Vision feature, which occurs at random and takes place directly on the reels. This is a quick feature that returns a smallish instant win, but the main bonus round, a free spins round, tends to return much more on average. There are only 10 free spins on offer and these can’t be re-triggered, but there is a jackpot of 88,000 waiting to be won.
With some impressive visuals and high paying symbols, Terminator 2 has a lot going for it, but the limited free spins are a bit of a letdown. However, wins seem to be far more common here than on other slots, which is the main thing, and the reason Terminator 2 gets a thumbs up from us.
