Transformers Ultimate Payback
Transformers – Ultimate Payback is a slot based on the 80’s animated series, rather than the new Michael Bay films. That said, for all you nostalgia junkies out there, this is perfect! The theme tune is played on each spin, and getting 3 matching ‘picture cards’ will reward you with a short animation of that character.
The Transformers slot is looking a little dated now compared to some other slots. But that plays well with the 80’s retro nature of the slot. That said, it is lacking an auto-play/expert mode, which means if you’re planning a long session, be prepared for a lot of clicking. As for the playing area, it has the usual 5 reels, with up to 25 paylines that you can activate at one time.
Wild – There are 3 wild symbols; Autobot, Decepticon and Cybertron and these substitute for all symbols except for the bonus symbols. However, when the Autobot and Decepticon wilds complete a winning combination, they expand, thereby increasing your chances of winning more from the position of already having won! The Cybertron wild has a variable multiplier attached to it ranging from x2 to x10 which is again activated when it is part of a winning combination.
Bonus – The bonus symbols are Optimus Prime and Megatron. If these appear on reels 1 and 5, it activates the ‘Ultimate Payback’ bonus. This is a free spins game where you keep spinning until Optimus Prime or Megatron are ‘defeated’ or you’ve had the maximum 100 spins. This works as you choose one or the other to support. If your transformer wins, you’ll get up to a x20 multiplier bonus on top of what you win in the free spins. This means it can be quite a chunky bonus, even on a low number of spins.
Transformers is a basic video slot, but this suits its retro feel. There’s enough to keep you engaged as you play, but by far the game’s best feature is the Ultimate Payback bonus, which can pay out big time.
