Transformers: Ultimate Payback Adds a Nostalgic Twist to Online Slots

Transformers: Ultimate Payback is the ideal slot for fans of both the recent movie franchise and those with more than a little nostalgia for the original cartoon series, which saw unprecedented success across Canada in the 1980s and is still shown to this day. The slot itself is based on the animated series, but brings into play characters that will be familiar to slots fans of all ages.

IGT Transformers slotThe theme itself and its implementation are undoubtedly the crowning achievements when it comes to reviewing Transformers: Ultimate Payback, as IGT have gone to great lengths to ensure that the game is true to the original series in virtually every aspect, even extending as far as to feature original animated sequences and the original voice acting cast. The main characters, Optimus Prime and Megatron are even the main focus of the bonus game which gives rise to the Ultimate Payback name. The reels themselves feature a whole host of familiar characters during standard gameplay, including Starscream, Jazz and Bumblebee, and even the playing card symbols that make appearances on the vast majority of IGT online slots have seen a complete overhaul to fit in with the Transformers graphical style.

The game itself is played on a standard five reel layout, with players selecting line bets of between $0.01 and $5, which can be applied to up to 25 win lines. Five Transformer logo symbols hold the key to the largest prize from a single spin, awarding players an impressive 2,000 coins.

As with many themed IGT slots, the real action and the most profitable gaming takes place during the bonus rounds and using the special features. The first such feature is the wild card, depicted by two separate symbols, one based on the heroic Autobots and one on the evil Decepticons. Both can expand to cover entire reels, which is great news for players that often opt to utilise the largest number of potential win lines.

Unusually, there is even a third wild symbol, based on Cybertron. Whenever this symbol forms part of a winning line, players are offered the opportunity to select from a number of planets, each hiding a different multiplier. Whatever number is selected is applied to every winning line that the Cybertron symbol forms a part of and can reach an impressive ten times the original amount.

Whereas most online slots from IGT that Canadian players will be familiar with offer scatter symbols that require three in view to unlock the bonus round, Transformers: Ultimate Payback is a little different. Instead, there are two scatters – Optimus Prime and Megatron – appearing only on the first and last reels respectively. When both appear on a single spin, the player is taken to the Ultimate Payback round where they can choose one of the leaders to win the upcoming battle. The two Transformers tackle each other whenever the Fight symbol appears on the last reel during free spins and if the player’s chosen Transformer wins then they receive bonus cash in addition to their free spin prizes.
