Where to play?
Fans of the Transformers movies are in for a treat with this one. IGT once again teamed up with Twentieth Century Fox and brings you Transformers: Battle For Cybertron video slots. It features 5 reels, 40 paylines and all the chaos of the films on the reels.The game was released in November 2013.
One of the standout features of the slots aside from its explosive graphics is its slick free spins bonus game. The payout percentage hovers between 92.6% up to 96.7%. All in all this is one mean slots that shouts lucrative payouts and high octane game play. Okay, I just wanted to get this out the way. Paying icons across the reels are loads of mystery symbols and cascading reels.
The coin range encompasses players with different bankrolls. It starts off with 0.01 up to 3.00. The smallest bet is $0.6 up to a whopping $600 per spin. I played the game with a small bankroll of $50 which I lost pretty quick. What strikes me about this slots is that its quite volatile since its bonus games are so lucrative. I’d say that it’s not suitable to players with bankrolls lower than $100 but a great game for players looking for casual game play. I might be wrong but this is my honest opinion.
When it comes to its bonus games Transformers: Battle For Cybertron is by no means a one trick pony. Here I’m going to discuss the various bonus games and their payouts.
Cascading Reels: Hope I got your attention now. Although this is not entirely new it’s still an innovative feature at best. 3D slots like Rook’s Revenge or Gonzo’s Quest ring a bell? If you’re not sure how the cascading reels work, they explode and replaced by the ones above them. When this happens you’ll receive a mini-free spin.
Wilds: The wild icon is the purple cube. When it pops up it substitutes all the other icons except bonus icon. Suffice it to say when it does appear you’ll be grinning from ear to ear.
Random Bonuses: You guessed it these bonuses although quite lucrative and show up at any time. When they do appear expect loads of explosive action-you might want to increase the audio volume on your speakers. You’ll receive a free cascading feature when 5 robots appear any place on the reels. Optimus Prime is the chief honcho. When the Decepticons appear he goes on a shooting spree by blowing them up. In turn all the Autobot’s are destroyed by Megatron. Random icons are destroyed by Shockwave and Grimlock.
Ratchet Feature: All I can say is this game picks up where the aforementioned left off. The Ratchet feature appears randomly and responsible for triggering the free spins.
Free Spins Bonus: When 3 bonus icons appear any place on the reels the free spins bonus is triggered with multipliers. You can pick the Transformer you wish to play with. I must caution you though it’s not easy to trigger the free spins, you might burn up a lot of cash pursuing it. Don’t ask me which Transformer to pick since each comes with its own cash prizes.
The free spins are awarded as follow:
- Megatron: Comes with a multiplier of between 8x to 10x. It offers 5 free spins. Don’t let the small amount of free spins put you off they offer huge payouts.
- Optimus Prime: Awards 8 free spins with a multiplier if 4x to 10x.
- Shockwave: Comes with a multiplier between 3x and 5x and awards 12 free spins.
- Bumblebee: With a multiplier of 2x to 4x it offers 15 free spins.
My initial take on Transformers: Battle For Cybertron slots is that it’s not suitable to low-risk players. The biggest wins during the free spins are offered by Megatron and Optimus Prime. From an entertaining point of view it awash with loads of action but can delight and crush you all in one go.
