Terminator II Slot Machine
The Terminator II slot machine from Microgaming is a great homage to a classic action movie. If you loved the original tale of robots coming back from the future to save mankind (and let’s face it, who doesn’t!?) then this one should be an ideal slot machine for you.
From Arnold Schwarzenegger and his bad ass, motorcycle riding T-800, to his shapeshifting liquid metal foe, hell bent of ending a young John Connor, all the characters are present. Some of the bonus features actually make use of the T-1000’s transformative powers too – a nice touch indeed.
The slot itself is a five reel, three row affair. It’s played over a 1,024 ways to win system and has a few different bonus features to boot. Unfortunately, these don’t exactly offer much in the way of replay value though. The real enjoyment of the Terminator II slot machine comes from its honest portrayal of the movie’s content – animated clips, original music, and all the dystopian future nightmarishness you could hope for included.

Terminator II Review
|Pay Lines:||243 (ways to win)|
|Our Rating:||3 / 5|
- Stunning looking slot machine. The atmosphere of the original action/thriller flick is preserved beautifully through the music and artwork.
- Decent return-to-player rating. This makes the game ideal for those wanting to spin through a bonus on it.
- Feels rather samey quickly. There just isn’t sufficient diversity within the game’s bonus features. This leaves a title that is highly impressive on first visit but can’t seem to engage players on subsequent ones.
- Low upper betting limit. We’ve seen games that accept bets of up to £2,000 per spin. When compared this those, £30 just doesn’t seem to cut it.
A max win of 88,000 coins is available via the free spins/scatter features on this slot.
The top regular jackpots on the Terminator II slot machine are all awarded for hitting five-of-a-kind of the symbols that are integral to the plot of the 80s action movie. We’ve listed the prizes for hitting five-of-a-kind of each below:
- “Scatter” = 100x the total bet.
- T2 “Wild” Game Logo = 15x the total bet.
- Terminator = 26.6x the total bet.
- John Connor = 16.6x the total bet.
- T-1000 = 13.3x the total bet.
- Sarah Connor = 3x the total bet.
- T-800 = 6.6x the total bet.
Landing three, four, or five “scatter” symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger 10 free spins. During these, the T-1000 can transform into any character symbol to award the highest possible payment.
1,024 Ways to Win Free Spins
During the free spins mode on Terminator II, an additional row is added to the game board. This gives players extra ways to win – 1,024 to be precise.
The T-800 Vision feature is randomly triggered during the base game only. It will occur on any non-winning spin. During this feature, only one “scatter” is needed to trigger the free spin feature. The T-800 Vision also awards a cash pay for any character symbol.
Along with the character and game symbols listed above, there are also some regular symbols. These pay far less than the icons that are specifically relevant to the plot. Like many slot machines, these symbols have been inspired by a deck of cards. However, rather than use the numbers from the upper end of a deck, they use the suits. We’ve listed the prizes for hitting five-of-a-kind of each below:
- Spades or Hearts = 3.3x the total bet.
- Diamonds or Clubs = 1.6x the total bet.
Players are only able to adjust the size of each coin they bet on the Terminator II slot machine, as well as the number of coins bet on each of the supposed thirty win lines. The minimum and maximum coin sizes are 1p and 10p respectively. Meanwhile, it’s possible to bet between one and 10 coins on each line. This means that the lowest possible bet per spin is just 30p. Meanwhile, with all values maxed out, the highest possible wager on every turn is a rather lacklustre £30. We therefore doubt that many high rollers will be impressed with the betting limits on Terminator II.
The Terminator II slot machine is a bit of a mixed bag. Being such an honest portrayal of one of our favourite movies, it’s impossible to be too hard on it. It looks, sounds, and feels spot on. That said, the bonus features aren’t hugely engaging. Once you’ve span through them all once or twice, you’ll likely find yourself returning to the casino’s catalogue to find a more exciting slot machine to pass the time on. That, and the upper betting limit leaves a lot to be desired on Terminator II.
