The release of Robocop by Playtech has rekindled interest in a similar video pokie from Microgaming. Terminator 2 and Robocop are both branded online pokies based on popular franchises that feature cyborg law enforcers. The first Terminator movie was released in 1984 and Robocop franchise was launched a few years later. Terminator 2: Judgement Day is live at Australian Microgaming online casinos like Casino Mate, Royal Vegas and Spin Palace.
Terminator 2 is definitely superior in its visual appeal. The high paying symbols are the lead characters from the movie and they include the Terminator, T-1000, T-800, Sarah Connor and John Connor. Being a branded online pokie the win animations are in the form of clips from the movie. Five of a kind wins obviously award the biggest payouts, but also have the clips played on full screen. Instead of playing card icons as the low paying symbols, playing card suits are used. The game logo is the wild symbol and it also awards the largest line payouts. The energy orb from the movie awards the scatter payouts. In the base game Terminator 2 has the 243 ways to win structure.
Three or more scatter symbols trigger the bonus feature that awards 10 free spins. The structure immediately changes to 1024 ways to win. T-1000 was a shape shifter in the movie. In each free spin the T-1000 symbol will change to another character symbol so as to award the highest possible line payout. Another bonus feature in Terminator 2 online pokie is T-800 Vision. It can be randomly triggered in any winless spin in the base game. In the T-800 Vision feature you will be awarded a cash payout for the character symbols that land on the reels. The other benefit of T-800 Vision is that during this feature, only one scatter symbol can activate the free spins.
In Terminator 2 you can wager up to 10 coins per payline. The coin size can be varied from AU$0.01 to AU$0.50. As per the standard practice in Microgaming 243 ways to win video slots, the total bet is 30 times the line bet. The maximum total bet per spin works out to AU$150, which will keep the high rollers interested. The payout table indicates medium volatility.
