Slot machines are among the most popular games of the world. There are other games extremely popular, of course, but these are the ones available – both online and in real life – in probably the greatest variety. There are literally hundreds of variants available in casinos, pubs, betting shops or restaurants of the world, and there are also hundreds of them – free to play or real money versions – available online.
Commercial slot machines – the ones that can be played for real money – are built with a great variety of themes, inspired by a bunch of things. There are some with shoes, fish, hunting, wildlife, sports, vacations, office work, spies, and there are those – among the most popular – that are inspired by Hollywood hits, just like the one recently released by Microgaming, one of the best rated casino games developers of the world: “Terminator 2 – Judgement Day.”
This is the last in the series of popular casino titles based on hit movies launched by the developer based in the Isle of Man. It has launched several others before – for example, one of their most popular ones based on the high tech vigilante cleaning out the streets of Gotham City, as imagined by Christopher Nolan, besides a bunch of others based on successful TV series and video games (including the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider franchise).
Terminator 2 – Judgement Day was released based on a licensing agreement signed by the developer and Studiocanal, back in February. The game was launched at the beginning of June. It features cut scenes, sound effects and the characters from the hit movie – we can see familiar faces, like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton and Robert Patrick, the lead actors from the movie.
The game itself is a modern video slot machine, with five reels and 243 ways to win. It features everything a modern and successful slot machine needs: stunning bonuses (although no progressive jackpot this time), free spins and the possibility to expand to 1024 ways to win, maximizing the winnings of the lucky player. The morphing capability of the T-1000 (masterfully played by Robert Patrick in the original movie) was exploited during the Free Spins bonus game – it can morph into any of the symbols, offering players an even bigger chance to win.
Did I make you curious? Are you asking where could you try this game? Well, it depends where you reside. Jackpot City is still one of the best casinos for Canadian players, so I would suggest to start there if you happen to reside in Canada. Europe and the rest of the world has a great variety of Microgaming – powered casinos to choose from, while in case of US players I can only suggest to try one of the places where the game is available in “fun mode”, as the licenses usually prohibit them from registering to most online casinos anyway.
One of the memorable quotes from the movie was “I’ll be back”. Well, he is back again. Good luck.
