Inspired Entertainment launched its online and mobile slot adaptation of The Terminator. Released as part of Inspired’s growing suite of licensed content, The Terminator incorporates iconic graphics and visuals from the original 1984 movie, “transporting slot players to a land of nostalgia and big thrills.”
With a reel configuration on 5×4 and 20 win-lines, the game features Inspired’s latest Win & Spin mechanic. The base game is packed with Wilds and Win & Spin symbols, in addition to reel modifiers, presented in-game as the movie’s key characters: The Terminator, Sarah Connor, Kyle Reese and the Endoskeleton.
If any of the stacked symbols / reel modifiers land in view on the first reel, the base game’s Super Symbol Respins will commence, taking the player on a journey of spins and big wins. Players will aim to land additional matching symbols. Respins will finish when no extra matching symbols land in view.
Attaining six or more Win & Spin symbols in the base game triggers the Win & Spin Bonus entry. The number of symbols the player lands dictates the starting position of the player (shown as Sarah Connor) on the game’s progressive trail with The Terminator hot on the player’s heels, just three spaces behind.
Throughout the duration of the Bonus, the Win & Spin symbols previously landed lock in place with the reels spinning to reveal new symbols with cash values to facilitate the player’s move along the trail. If no new symbols land, the player stays put and The Terminator moves one space forward, emulating the thrilling chase elements of the movie.
Mystery supply packs are available along the trail presenting players with three options to avoid The Terminator and help them win big. These include: “Extra Lives” where The Terminator gets pushed further back; “Collector,” where additional symbols get added to the board advancing the player along the trail; “Upgrade Prize,” where more symbols are added to boost their overall jackpot; and “Cash Boost,” where random symbols are added to the board to increase the player’s stake and thus their cash values.
If The Terminator catches up to the player before the board is filled with symbols, the player is paid the total values awarded to them throughout the Bonus round. If, however, they fill the board, they will have a chance to spin the game’s Grand Wheel with prizes up to a whopping 1,000x their stakes.
With a return-to-player rate of 94.5%, The Terminator is a fun, medium to high volatility game, “packed with engaging gameplay, aimed at the casual online casino player,” the company wrote.
Steve Collett, Chief Product Officer at Inspired, said: “We’re thrilled to be launching our slot adaptation of one of the most iconic movies of all time, taking players on a trip down memory lane.”
“With its innovative mechanics and, solid math profile coupled with great visual effects, we’re certain it’ll be an instant hit with players who lived through The Terminator era and with others who know of its legendary status!” he added.
“With the addition of Inspired’s exciting Win & Spin mechanic, we’ve moved along and enhanced the traditional elements of cash on reel style games. Offering big potential wins and non-stop thrills, The Terminator is a welcome addition to our growing suite of fun, licensed content,” he concluded.
