Pokie Review

This is one of Playtech's better movie pokies. It is set in 2029, with John Connor leading the Resistance against Skynet. In its infinite wisdom, Skynet decides to send a T-1000 back in time to 1984 in order to kill John’s mum, Sarah Connor, before John can be born. Of course, as we all know, there is already a reprogrammed T-800 in the form of Arnold Schwarzenegger protecting her. Cue lots of action and battle scenes and you get the premise of the movie.

In this pokie, you’ll be battling it out across 5 reels and 25 paylines as you attempt to win the top prize of 5,000x your initial bet. With an impressive maximum of $2,500 allowed per spin, this can result in big payouts.

Terminator Genisys symbols

When it comes to graphics, this pokie, like many Playtech pokies, is superb, with its cinematic symbols which also translate well to the game if it is played on mobile and tablet, as well as desktop. There are 10 symbols in total, 5 low paying and 5 higher paying. The lower paying symbols include items such as rifles from the resistance, brain chips, photos of Sarah Connor and magnetic gloves, as well as teddy bears which net a player up to 100x their bet.

The higher paying symbols include the T1000 Cyborg, John Connor, Kyle Reese, Sarah Connor and, of course, the terminator himself which pays out a nice 1,200x a player’s bet. This pokie also features 4 wild symbols in the form of the Terminator Wild, the Gold Multiplier Wild, the Stacked Genisys Wild and the T-1000 Wild.

Terminator Genisys car chase feature

That’s right, there is a car chase bonus feature in this game, which can be triggered randomly within the base game. In this game, you’ll be asked to choose between one of the five T-1000 symbols as you help Sarah and Kyle outrun the T-1000. The symbols will reveal respins and a multiplier bonus, as well as cash payouts. What’s more, this is a feature that is triggered more than you might imagine.

Terminator Genisys 1984 free games feature

Should a player land a Genisys Scatter symbol on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels, then they’ll activate the free game bonus which enables them to time travel back to either 1984 or 2017.

Choose 1984 and you’ll be sent to LA, where your task is to save Sarah from the Cyborg terminators. You’ll be awarded with 10 free spins without the chance of retriggering them. Every time a T-1000 Wild lands on a reel, it magically turns into a gold multiplier Wild with a value of 2x, 3x or 5x, which then locks into place until a win is landed.

If you’re the riskier type, then perhaps you should aim towards travelling back a little less in time, to 2017, where San Francisco will be your base. Here, you’ll be aiming to save humanity by destroying Skynet. This is a higher variance option than 1984, but players receive the same 10 free spins. Each wild symbol that lands is turned into a stacked Wild, which is then locked into place until a win is landed.

Terminator Genisys verdict

While the movie might not have been too popular, the same can’t be said when it comes to this pokie. This has proved to be a big hit with fans, thanks to its movie soundtrack and amazing cinematic clips direct from the movie itself. The gameplay is pretty standard, but the animations, car chases, time travel and multiple Wilds mean this pokie is action packed, to say the very least. And for a spin at $0.25, even the players with the smallest pockets can have a go. For those of you with much deeper pockets, there is a betting range up to a massive $2,500 a spin. The pokie also has a reported RTP of 95.75%, which is a figure that is pretty standard for these kinds of pokies.
