These days, almost every franchise has at least one iGaming counterpart that fans and novices alike can enjoy. The Batman empire has at least six different slots on the go, while Jurassic Park, Game of Thrones and even shows like X Factor all have their own slots. Of course, this got us thinking about the possibility of a Transformers slot existing somewhere out there in the World Wide Web.
After all, our Auto Assembly inspirations are the very pinnacle of high tech and have reached every corner of the media world. There are movies, comic books, television series, toys, conventions, webisodes, spin-offs and almost everything else you can think of – so why not a slot.
Well, never fear fellow Autobot allies as there is indeed a Transformers slot out there that you can go and play (for free, might we add) right now.
Transformers Battle for Cybertron
When it comes to iGaming software developers, few can compete with IGT. Each of the company’s titles features high-quality graphics, exceptional animation and sound effects that would sit nicely in a blockbuster movie. This is also the case in IGT’s Transformers Battle for Cybertron slot, based on the Michael Bay film franchise.
As this slot has proven to be so popular you can find it on most leading online casinos, such as Guts, where you can get in on the war between Transformers and Cyborgs playing online slot game. Even if you’re not a regular slots player, Guts are offering a £300 welcome bonus to new players, as well as 100 free spins so you can really try before you buy. The game is also available at Vegas Magical casino and Slingo.
The speedy, action-packed slot features 5 reels and 40 paylines as well as random symbols that can quickly help you rack up impressive winnings. These free-falling symbols are unique to the Transformers Battle for Cybertron slot, offering players a whole new level of gameplay. The symbols simply drop into place randomly, will disappear and will occasionally even be overtaken by new symbols, thus creating even more opportunities to win. Plus, regardless of which symbols appear – random or otherwise – each has a link to the Transformers franchise, with Bumblebee, Megatron and Optimus Prime appearing alongside the rest of the cast.
There are also bonus symbols, including the Cybertron plant and a purple cube wild. Perhaps the most exciting thing about the slot though is the Bonus Features, which are randomly triggered throughout gameplay. Each of the Mystery Bonus Features stars one of the five most celebrated robots in the Transformers series, each appearing on the screen and shooting the frame to set it ablaze. Here’s the lowdown on each character feature:
Megatron – annihilates every Autobot symbol in the reels.
Optimus Prime – destroys every Decepticon symbol in the reels.
Shockwave & Grimlock – take out a random number of symbols in the reels.
Ratchet – triggers free spins.
Each of these is going to help you rack up a bigger payout, so you’ll be glad to know placing your original bet is simple as well as cheap. Betting amounts range from 0.40 to 500.00, so there are plenty of options and once you get into the game you’ll soon see your earnings rise as the game is so intense.
There you have it: a fully fledged, fully automated video slot you can play online. In fact, it will probably help fill the gaping void as we wait for the highly anticipated Bumblebee (2018) starring Hailee Steinfeld and Gracie Dzienny, which finally starts shooting in August.
