Matrix Slot Machine
Blockbuster movies usually make good slot machines and the Matrix from Playtech is no exception. Right from the get go it’s apparent that the designers have tried to remain true to the original concept’s art style and feel. This makes it a strong machine for fans of the movie.
That’s not to say there isn’t anything for those who are less interested in dystopian science fiction. The game has several great bonus features that keep the action interesting and varied. The only real let down is a somewhat low upper betting limit. This is unlikely to put off most, however. It’s only really an issue for the highest rollers.

- Great look, feel, and sounds. This slot remains true to the original movie’s content and this proves to be an effective theme for a casino game.
- Interesting bonus features. We love games with different kinds of free spin modes and The Matrix offers two of these.
- Rather low upper betting limit. Whilst most players will not be put off by only being able to bet £100 per spin, there will be some high rollers who will pass up The Matrix based on its maximum bet.
The top jackpots on The Matrix slot machine are all awarded for hitting five-of-a-kind of any of the main character symbols. These character symbols can also be stacked. This significantly increases the chances of winning. Each combination of five matching symbols will pay the following:
- “Wild” Neo = 500x the line bet.
- Agent Smith = 250x the line bet.
- Morpheus = 200x the line bet.
- Trinity = 150x the line bet.
Déjà vu Shuffle
“Déjà vu is usually a glitch in the Matrix. It happens when they change something…”
During any main game spin, reel five can randomly fill with the cat “wild” symbols. These are then duplicated on reel one and all the remaining symbols will shuffle for the chance to form new winning combinations.
The Matrix Free Games Modes
Landing the “Free Games” symbol on reels one, three, and five simultaneously will trigger a choice of two free game modes. These are eight free games with added Agent Smith symbols and unlimited free games with sentinel “wilds”.
Agent Smith: 8 Free Games
During this bonus Agent Smith symbols are added to the reels on every spin of the free games. This dramatically increases the likelihood of hitting a massive win. Players should note: these games cannot be retriggered.
Bebuchadnezzar Unlimited Free Games
Additional sentinel “wild” symbols swarm the reels during this mode and lock into place. When the blue orb symbol lands, it removes all “wilds” on the reels before the next spin. The free games will end when six “wild” symbols or more are on the reels at once.
In addition to the higher value, main character symbols, there are also those that do not pay quite as handsomely. Two of these have been inspired by items from the plot of the original movie. As well as these, there are four different Japanese symbols. Being as I don’t speak, read, or write Japanese, players will have to check the game information to see what these look like. The prizes for hitting five-of-a-kind of each are as follows:
- Shades or Telephone = 125x the line bet.
- First tier of Japanese characters = 75x the line bet.
- Second tier of Japanese characters = 50x the line bet.
The number of win lines on The Matrix slot machine are fixed at 50. This means players are only able to adjust the amount bet per line. The minimum here is just 1p and the maximum is a rather feeble £2. This makes the lowest possible bet per spin just 50p and the highest £100. Whilst this is more than enough for most players, there will undoubtedly be some higher rollers out there who find it overly limiting.
All things considered, The Matrix slot machine from Playtech is a winner. The look and feel of the game takes players right back to the computer-simulated, sci-fi drama of Neo, Morpheus, and Trinity. The title features several exciting game features to boot. We particularly like the fact that there are two innovative free spin modes and one of them is technically unlimited!
The only real drawback with this one is the upper betting limit of £100. However, this will only affect the highest rollers around.
