Terminator 2 Pokie

Microgaming have a number of pokies that are film tie-ins, including Jurassic Park and Lord of the Rings, but Terminator 2 is arguably their most successful and it brings clips from the movie along with some of the main characters to a 5 reel game that has 243 Ways to Win and some decent bonus features.

For anyone who has been living in cave since 1991, Terminator 2 sees Arnold Schwarzenegger come back from the future to protect John Connor from a morphing liquid-metal killer robot, while John’s mother Sarah Connor has done some morphing of her own to become a bad-ass fighter. In true Arnie style, there’s loads of action, a few jokes and then everything blows up.

Playing Terminator 2

The whole game is a very stylish affair, with various machine parts forming a backdrop to the reels and the game title in the same font as the movie along the top of the screen. On either side of the reels where we would normally see payline indicators, we instead see that this pokie has 243 Ways to Win, which essentially means that any time matching symbols fall on adjacent reels running from the left side, players win a prize.

Because all parts of the game are always in play, the minimum stake is a relatively high 0.30 per spin, and by increasing coin values and the number of coins, this can be raised all the way to a maximum of 150.00 a time.

Lower value symbols are the club, diamond, heart and spade icons, all surrounded by metallic frames, while actual images of the main film characters make up higher winning combinations.

The T-800 cyborg endo-skeleton is the least valuable of these, and then we see Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, Robert Patrick as the all-new T-1000, Edward Furlong looking suitably moody as John Connor and of course, Arnie as everyone’s favourite killer cyborg. Any time one of these makes up a winning line, players are treated to a short clip of that character from the film.

Extra Features

The Terminator 2 pokie may not be quite as action-packed as the movie, but it’s a fairly full-on game which sees wild substitutions, free spins and a bonus game that plays out in TerminatorVision. If that’s not a real word, it should be.

A T2 logo backed up with a fireball is wild, so it will act as any base symbol to help complete winning lines, playing further clips when it does so, while it can also pay out some decent wins on its own.

The plasma ball that sees time travellers arrive at their destinations is a scatter, paying out wins that are multiplied by the total stake, rather than just the line bet. It will also start a free spins game when at least 3 appear in any positions at once.

10 free spins are awarded and a fourth row of symbols is in play throughout them, giving players 1024 Ways to Win instead of ‘just’ 243. The T-1000 becomes a friend of the players in this round as well, transforming into any high value character symbol if he can make up a winning line.

T-800 Vision is randomly triggered after any non-winning spin and sees the screen go red as we watch the reels through Arnie’s eyes. A target will move around the screen and settle on any character, awarding a cash prize which varies depending on who it lands on.

A potentially useful touch is that if a single scatter is on the reels when the T-800 Vision feature starts, it will be followed by the free spins game.

The Verdict

Most online pokies have at least one or two flaws, but Terminator 2 is damn near perfect, especially for fans of the movie. The style of the film is carried through with great success and having real images and clips is a bonus in its own right. The actual bonus features however, are of a very high standard.

A randomly triggered roundis always a nice treat and the T-800 Vision one can have some high value rewards attached to it, while the main free spins round, with what is in effect an extra wild along with an additional row of symbols, should ensure a few decent wins are claimed throughout it.

It’s perhaps a shame that the actual soundtrack isn’t used for this game, which is almost certainly due to copywrite issues, but we do get some background music with a similar feel to it, so Microgaming should be proud of what they have achieved with this hugely popular online pokie.
