Robojack contains five reels and 243 paylines; the usual payline structure is superseded by a platform in which players will form winning combinations only by landing matching icons on nearby reels beginning from the left-hand side.
Robojack is a futuristic but obscurely cartoonish game with some reasonably basic looks, yet an elaborate free spins round to keep us interested. This futuristic slot game lives up to its theme by offering some very modern visual animations, not to mention funky little audios that imitate all of the beeps of the gadgetry on screen.
Admittedly, the game's concept is a little bit childish – consider the game more Wall-E than the Terminator – however, this provides the experience with a very colourful edge that will attract players from all walks of life.
To begin spinning the reels to the music reminiscent of past retro video games, players should first adjust their settings.
Clicking on the "Bet" arrows regulates the wager.
Pushing "Spin" starts spinning the reels.
To spin the reels multiple times without interruption, players can opt for the "Autoplay" option.
The main icons are a green orb, a box of gold coins, a yellow battery and a robot; the lower-value cards are the standard Jack, Queen, King and Ace icons but rendered in a quirky industrial manner.
The scatter icons is a big golden dollar sign attached to a silver machine, and the wild icon is the Robojack logo.
Bonus features of Robojack
There are five various bonus games available to play when a player spins Robo Jack. First, a player will need to find at least three scatter icons appearing anywhere on the five reels after which they will be taken to a new game screen where five bonus-boosting robots are lined up in a row.
A robot will be selected at random, and its special rewards will be revealed. Players can then either accept this robot or take a new risk and choose another one.
A player will now be awarded one of five different free spins rounds; if they don't like it, they have one more chance at a separate award. Each element offers a different number of free spins depending on how many icons activated it.
Red Robot One – twelve – 60 spins + the robot becomes an extra wild
Purple Robot Two – twelve – 40 spins + additional prizes for landing any scatter icons
Green Robot Three – four – 20 spins + one completely wild reel per turn
Pink Robot Four – ten – 65 spins + get eight more spins if you land two scatters
Green Robot Four – ten – 50 spins + x3 multiplier for all wins
Robojack by Microgaming is wired up with some great bonus rounds, providing players with every possibility to take home some excellent wins. What's more, the theme is special and enjoyable – even if it is a little bit on the juvenile side.
Robojack is a great game provided players can activate the bonus round reasonably regularly. It seems to us to be quite hard to trigger, but players should keep at it.
