Isle of Man-based gaming software provider Microgaming has released a new online slot game based on the science fiction film Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
The game went live with Microgaming and Quickfire operators this week, following the signing of an agreement between Microgaming and Studiocanal earlier this year in January.
The game includes footage of all lead actors in the film, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton and Robert Patrick, accompanied by the original soundtrack.
“We’ve taken the core elements of the iconic Terminator 2 film to create an online slot that does the brand justice,” said Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever. “Visually it is stunning and it has a fitting game mechanic that is completely unique to the online gaming market. Our operators and their players will be awestruck by our creation; we are incredibly excited about the game launch today.”
In the game, players that hit a five-of-a-kind are rewarded not only with a big payout, but with memorable clips from the film. There is also a T-800 Vision bonus feature, triggered at random during any non-winning spin, which positions the player experience through the eyes of the Terminator as he scans for targets to award higher wins.
In this mode, only a single scatter symbol is required to activate the free spins feature, which sees the slot expand from a 243 ways to 1,024 ways game, which Microgaming claims in an industry first.
During the 10 free spins, the T-1000 symbol acts as a substitute by morphing into any other character to award the highest possible win for that symbol combination.
Rand Marlis, president of Creative Licensing Corporation, which represents Studiocanal for Terminator 2 licensing, added: “Microgaming is an expert in licensing big brands and we had no doubt that they would create a T2 slot that would perfectly represent the film’s legendary status.
“The end result really has surpassed our expectations and the online game is a masterpiece; I’m delighted that it is now live for everyone to play and enjoy. Working with Microgaming is a real pleasure and we look forward to a long-lasting relationship.”
