The Six Million Dollar Man was an immensely popular television series. A former astronaut Steve Austin was fitted with bionic body parts that cost six million dollars and gave him super powers so that he could function better as a secret agent. Playtech, the leading software providers to Australian online casinos, has released a branded online pokie and a corresponding scratch card based on this TV series. These can be played at online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.
The Six Million Dollar Man is a 50 payline slot game in the 5×4 reels structure. Austin, played by Lee Majors, is the wild symbol and it also awards the top line payouts. Win animations with the wild symbol play video clips from the television series. Oscar Goldman, the director of the secret service, also appears as a symbol. The other high paying thematic symbols include bionic eye, hand and foot. All these symbols can appear stacked on the reels. The low paying symbols are the playing card icons designed like digital displays. The Six Million Dollar Man logo is the scatter symbol.
Playtech has introduced a feature called Bionic Spin in this online pokie that is optional. If you activate the feature then 50% of the regular total bet will be added to your stake. The benefit that you derive is that up to five symbols are randomly converted into wilds during Bionic Spins. If you are playing over a period of time then activating the feature is definitely worth the extra investment. Three or more scatter symbols start you with 15 free spins. During this feature, if you collect the bionic foot, hand and eye in that order from stacked symbols only, then you will be awarded two additional free spins and a wild symbol. The Bionic Spin feature is not available during the free spins.
Most of the Playtech branded online pokies have been released with corresponding scratch cards. This policy has been adopted for The Six Million Dollar Man as well. The scratch card game is formatted in a slightly different manner as compared to the other Playtech scratch cards. You place your bet and a randomly generated prize amount will be displayed. The greater your bet, the bigger the prize will be. The scratch card consists of 9 cells in a 3×3 matrix. Each cell conceals a bionic foot, hand or eye. By scratching only four cells you have to get three of the same body part in order to win the prize.
