The Robocop film franchise has spawned a legacy across several generations, with a number of incarnations on both big and small screen, and a reboot in 2014. The futuristic theme is a natural fit with online slot games, and the licensed Robocop online video slot manages to incorporate the music and artwork of the original 1987 film into a digital game that offers an extra that mechanical slots never could: a first-person shooter video game within one of the bonus rounds.
There are in fact two bonuses on offer in the Robocop slot, as well as two types of Wild. In the muted greys used in the original movie, enlivened only by the pastel colour washes on the symbols, an industrial metal reel frame holds five reels displaying three windows apiece, with 20 adjustable paylines. Robocop himself stands to the right of the reels, watching the action and reacting to wins. In the background, Delta City is lit a fiery red by the setting sun reflecting off its canyons of glass.
Two Wilds, One with a Multiplier
An icon featuring three targeted silhouettes is the standard Robocop Wild, able to replace any symbols except the Scatter to complete winning combinations. However, the Prime Directive Wild, with the same function, only comes up on Reel 3. When it does, there is a chance it may trigger the Prime Directive, which will create extra Wilds on the reels. Any prizes won with the Prime Directive Wild included in the combo are doubled.
Ten More Symbols in Play
Similar to many online slots USA, Robocop uses four low-value card symbols, crafted in shiny steel letters: the A, K, Q and J. Five As win a prize of 20X the line bet. The themed symbols comprise a police cruiser, the Robocop logo, a handgun, Robocop’s ED-209 opponent from the original film, his sidekick Officer Lewis, and the titular hero. All symbols win prizes for three, four or five matches, with Robocop winning the biggest: 100X, 300X or 750X the line bet.
Two Robocop Bonuses to be Won
A stylised logo showing the Delta City skyline is a Robocop symbol that wins some impressive prizes, including a progressive jackpot. For three, four or five Delta City icons in succession from Reel 1 on the same payline, the player wins a prize: 100 coins, 400 coins, or 300 coins plus the progressive jackpot. However, each time a Delta City icon appears anywhere on the reels, whether it is part of a win or not, it increases the Delta City Jackpot, until it is won by five matches. It then reverts to its base level, to be built up by successive Delta City symbols until it is won again.
The OCP logo is the Robocop Scatter: three or more in any windows will activate the Assault On OCP feature, which takes place on a second screen. Using the mouse to aim and fire, the player must fight their way through four levels of villains, losing power every time they are shot by an enemy. If the player’s power runs out and they die, the round ends. The further the player gets, the more they win.
