Terminator 2 Slots

Terminator 2 hit the big screen in 1991, seven years after the original movie. Arnold Schwarzenegger would once again play the role of a terminator, this time sent back to the present day to protect a young John Connor who is in danger from a more advanced T-1000 Terminator. On the reels of this MicroGaming designed slot you’ll find both of the Terminators, John Connor and his mother Sarah, each of these symbols photographic and coming to life with a video clip when forming part of a win line. This slot features 243 ways to win, but this number increases immensely during the free spins feature, which is certainly the highlight of the slot.

The backing to this slot is a dark black and blue, featuring electronic circuits and mechanical parts as part of the design. The reels are boxed within a rectangle, giving the game a crisp, modern look which is added to by the video clips played within the squares of the symbols. The control panel adds to the up to date feel of the slot, in a very slick blue. Alongside the character symbols you’ll also find the black backed playing card suits, each with a silver outline. All of this makes for a slot which is much in keeping with the futuristic feel of the film and the accompanying resounding theme of the film that plays throughout certainly magnifies this connection.

Playing Terminator 2

This slot has five reels, but instead of the more usual win lines, you’ll find 243 ways to win at the Terminator 2 slot. This means that you’ll win when landing symbols on adjacent reels from left to right, irrespective of the position on the reel. These 243 ways to win come at the cost of 30 credits, so the total stake for the slot will be your coin size multiplied by 30. The five characters are the highest paying, with the Schwarzenegger terminator the best of these, worth 800 coins for 5 in a row. John Connor, the T-1000 terminator and Sarah Connor pay 500, 400 and 300 coins respectively, while the T-800 in robot form pays 200 coins.

The T2 title of the slot acts as the wild and will substitute for any other on the reels apart from the scatter and the free spins symbols. This wild is also the highest paying symbol of the whole slot, paying out 1,500 coins for five in a row.

During the base game you have the opportunity of landing the T-800 vision feature. This is randomly awarded after any non-winning spin and will see you given a free spin with a difference. Every time you land one of the five character symbols you’ll win an instant cash prize and entry to the bonus feature is much more straightforward.

The final symbol on the reels is the scatter which is represented by a blue orb. This symbol awards an immediate cash prize if appearing twice or more across any of the reels, but three or more appearances will also activate the feature of the slot. (During a T-800 vision spin, just one of these scatters in needed to activate the feature).

The free spins feature is most certainly one you’ll want to land. The first thing you’ll notice is that the reels expand, and instead of just 3 symbols on show for each reel, you’ll now find four. This means that the number of ways to win grows from 243 to a highly impressive 1,024. This is not the only difference however. Every time you land the T-1000 symbol, this will now transform into any of the other character symbols, giving you even more wins. You’ll have a total of 10 free spins during the feature and have the opportunity of winning up to 88,000 coins in total – which would be a nice windfall for anyone.

When the Terminator 2 movie hit the cinema screens it was somewhat ground-breaking and MicroGaming have done the same with this cutting edge slot. The game has both excellent sound and graphics and the features make the slot highly playable. The T-800 vision randomly awarded feature adds a nice touch to the base game, but it’s the free spins bonus round that is the highlight of the slot. Having the reels expand during a feature is certainly innovative and this, in combination with the 1,024 ways to win, makes for a very enjoyable and potentially highly profitable round.

About Terminator 2

Terminator 2 was written, produced and directed by James Cameron and was the second of currently five Terminator movies (with two more to come in 2017 and 2018). Arnold Schwarzenegger was joined in the cast by Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, Edward Furlong as John Connor and Robert Patrick as the Terminator T-1000.

The film would make breakthroughs in computer generated imagery, being the first to feature a main character that was partially computer generated and making the first use of natural human motion for a computer generated character. This would lead to the movie winning the Oscar for Best Visual Effects.

Terminator 2 would open to mainly positive reviews, with the Washington Post stating,’ No one in the movies today can match Cameron’s talent for this kind of hyperbolic, big-screen action’. The Box Office receipts would also show the popularity of the film, as it took a total of $519 million worldwide, which would dwarf the production costs of $102 million (which at the time was the most expensive movie ever). Interestingly, Terminator 2 made 434% more at the box office than the original, making it a record increase for a movie sequel.

On the Empire ‘The 500 Greatest Movies of all Time List’, Terminator 2 would be ranked at number 35.
