Panic abounded back before the millennium when prophets of doom thought robots were going to take over the world. And nowadays, with the advancement of technology, there is more of a chance of that happening. But we’re not worried. Who doesn’t love robots? NetEnt certainly does, as it proves on its Wild-O-Tron 3000 Slot, an industrial, robotic experience which can see us win up to 500 times our stake on every single spin.

Gameplay

Set within a robot laboratory, we get to see how these mechanical wonders come to life. And come to life they certainly do, with deft animation from the second the slot loads up. On the right of the reel set is a unique looking machine, which zaps life into the reels as we spin away. The main symbols come alive in the form of robots, as expected after mentioning them enough times! They come in various colours with the Red Robot giving us 15 times our stake for five across a payline.

While we watch the robots zap themselves to life, we also notice that they can all appear stacked, helping us to land those wins.  The Blue W symbol is the Wild and also the highest paying symbol, giving us up to one and a half, five or 25 times our stake when it appears three, four or five times on a payline. There’s a lot going onscreen, robots whizzing around the reels, mechanical sounds in the background and the stacking of symbols makes us feel as if perhaps these robots are Transformers and will come alive. They don’t. But our account certainly does.

Bonuses

Wild-O-Tron 3000 Slot only comes with one bonus feature, called the Wild-O-Tron feature. It might not be the most original of names, but it’s a fairly original bonus. It triggers at random, so we never have to keep our eyes out for elusive Scatter symbols. During this bonus round, between one and six of the Robot symbols can transform into a Wild. When they do, it can lead to the whole reel set filling up with Wilds, and things go crazy, especially when they appear stacked. If that happens, we can win up to 500 times our stake on each spin.

Summary

Fans of robots or any other type of industrial action (not the Southern Rail type), will love the mechanical whirs and whizzes of Wild-O-Tron 3000. And if you just fancy playing a slot which doesn’t have too many convoluted bonus features, then you’ll appreciate the simplicity this game has to offer. Despite having only one bonus round, it comes in to play on a regular bonus so there’s no worry of missing out on those big wins. And with NetEnt’s flair for design and visceral animation on display, Wild-O-Tron 3000 is a gorgeous slot to watch in action.
