The Terminator Franchise Gets a Reboot as a Slot Machine

May 3rd, 2023: Remember the hit Hollywood movie The Terminator? Released on October 26, 1984, The Terminator stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator; an assassin sent back in time to kill Sarah Connor, whose unborn son will one day save humanity. It was a box office hit when released and continues to have a cult following until today. However, the classic Hollywood movie is now getting a reboot, not as an updated film, but as a premium online slot.

Inspired Entertainment, a leading games studio authorized in 35 jurisdictions worldwide, has announced the launching of its adaptation of the famous movie. Launched as part of the company’s growing licensed content collection, The Terminator boasts iconic graphics and visuals from the classroom movie, offering players a cinematic experience while playing the game.

The Terminator- A Nostalgic trip on the reels

The Terminator slot offers players a cinematic experience on its 5×4 and 20 payline slots. According to the studio’s press release, this new game transports players to a land of nostalgia and big thrills, and we can also add, with plenty of opportunities to win big thanks to its Win & Spin mechanic. Players will encounter the Wilds, the Win and Spin symbols, and the reel modifiers in its base game. In addition, the movie’s main characters, like The Terminator, Sarah Connor, Kyle Reese, and the Endoskeleton, appear in the game as high-paying symbols.

Once you land one of the stacked symbols or reel modifiers on the first reel, you’ll trigger the Super Symbol Respins. Next, you aim to land additional identical symbols to continue to the respins. By collecting six or more Win & Spin symbols during the base game, you’ll enter the Win & Spin Bonus. The number of symbols you collect determines your starting position on the Progressive Trail, where The Terminator is three steps behind.

When playing the bonus round, the Win & Spin symbols that lock in place will reveal new symbols with cash values that help you move forward. If there are no new symbols, the player stops, and The Terminator moves one step forward, replicating the action sequence in the movie.

Use Mystery Supply Packs 

You’ll want to avoid The Terminator in this game to get big wins. Good thing the game offers you ‘Mystery Supply Packs’ along the trail. These Supply Packs are the ‘Extra Lives,’ where you push The Terminator back; the Collector, where extra symbols are added to the board that helps you move; the ‘Upgrade Prize,’ where more symbols are added to grow the jackpot, and the ‘Cash Boost’ which increases the player’s stake and cash values.

If The Terminator catches the player before the grid is filled with symbols, the total values are added. But if you manage to fill the board with symbols, then you can spin the Grand Wheel to a chance to win the top prize of up to 1,000x the bet!

The Terminator slot machine from Inspired Gaming is an action-packed game that revisits the classic movie. Aside from its exciting theme and visuals, this game boasts engaging gameplay and adventure-themed bonuses. Also, it comes with an RTP of 94.5%.

Steve Collett, Chief Product Officer at Inspired, shared his enthusiasm on this new release from the company, saying that they’re thrilled to be launching our slot adaptation of one of the most iconic movies of all time, taking players on a trip down memory lane”.  He further added that they expect the game to a “be an instant hit with players who lived through The Terminator era and with others who know of its legendary status,” referencing to the game’s solid math and mechanic.

There’s no set date on the actual release, and we expect this game to be available in Inspired casinos in the UK. So what are your thoughts on this new release?
