Six Million Dollar Man
The title might not sound familiar to many people, but those that saw the show will recognize the name of this 5 reel slot with 30 lines. It’s the title of an older TV series that focused on a bionic man, so that’s the kind of high tech imagery that they ended up using for the slot as well. There is a bit of retro feel to it as well though, since this was a show that was around a few decades ago. The scatter symbol comes with bionic free games, the wild is stacked and there are a few other stacked symbols in there as well.
Graphics & Theme
The theme of the bionic man is well covered in this game, some of the symbols being taken directly from the series (pictures of actors), while others are simply created by the developers of the slot, but still connected in some way. That’s why you will find the Six Million Dollar Man as the wild symbol, Oscar Goldman as a stacked symbol, various bionic limbs that also appear stacked, various other stacked tech symbols, plus the playing cards which are the regular kind. There is a certain metallic look to this slot that makes it feel cold and futuristic. Even the playing cards are made out of small blue dots. Most of the symbols have a black background behind them. One of the more interesting parts about the betting area is the way everything is organized. You get a console with options, where you click on the – or + signs to get the bet to go up or down, while the numbers appear on a wheel that spins. There is both a regular and a bionic spin button.
The Bionic Spin feature is an additional button that players can use, which will change the mode in which the slot is being played. For an extra 50% on the wager value, the player gets between 0 and 5 wilds placed at random on the screen.
The wild symbol is stacked and it gives us an image of the actor that played the bionic man. The only symbol that it can’t substitute for is the scatter. The same wild will give the player prizes whenever combinations are formed that are entirely made out of them. Two to five wild symbols will give payouts that vary between 25 and 4000 coins.
The scatter symbol is another important part of the slot, mainly because it award prizes of up to 100 times the bet value, but also because it triggers the bionic free games feature. Represented by an image of the logo of the game, the scatter awards 15 games for free and they can benefit from a bionic feature. As he is playing the free games, the player needs to collect three symbols with bionic limbs. If he does so, he gets additional wilds and an extra 2 free games.
The slot has its appeal, especially for those that saw the series at some point. It might not hold that much appeal for everyone else.
