NetEnt, while not usually known for offering very simple games, has decided to go that route in this latest slot machine, even though the robotic sci-fi design might not recommend it as such. It’s more of a feature-related issue, but this developer has released plenty of other games in the past with simpler action, and they proved quite popular.
Wild-O-Tron 3000 will give us 5x3 reels, and a total of 20 lines are going to be used each round. There aren’t that many features included, only a random one that turns robots into wilds and can end up paying up to $100,000 as a result. The expected RTP for the game is announced at 96.01%.
Betting and Prizes
In the process of setting up the bet in Wild-O-Tron 3000, the player has to select the amount that goes to each line that is used. There are always 20 lines used, so the bets will be starting from a minimum value of $0.20. Taking it from there, the slot allows you to pick a number of coins and denominations that will contribute to a total amount of $10 per line. For the 20 lines, that’s the equivalent of a $200 total bet.
Wild symbols are the ones paying the most, and together, while filling up an entire screen, they will pay up to $100,000. This, combined with a 96.01% Return to Player, gives us an idea of what kind of game you can expect.
Wild-O-Tron 3000 Slot Features
If you look at the features implemented in Wild-O-Tron 3000, chances are that you will find them much simpler than in other games. One of them, the one that you get on the reels, will be the wild symbol. Not only are you allowed to use it in any combination that you form inside, but it will also be capable of occupying lines and paying you directly. The best combo of the game is actually the wild’s own, and it will pay up to $5,000 (500x the line bet).
Now that you know what symbol is responsible for triggering the game’s best winning combinations, it’s time you know how you can get the $100,000 jackpot from it. There is a second feature, a randomly triggered one, which is called Wild-O-Tron. Should this feature trigger, without any input from the symbols on the reels, you will find that 1 to 6 types of robot symbols are transformed into wilds. There are 6 symbols that will do this, and they have the potential to cover the entire game area with wilds. That’s the best case scenario, but the feature can also transform only some of those six types of robots.
Theme & Design
Wild-O-Tron 3000 features a retro-style robot theme, with the science fiction genre getting a good looking new slot thanks to it. There are a number of robot types that may appear in the game, some in red, green or yellow, others in more industrial looking shells. You get the impression that the action takes place in a factory, and you have the control panel for these robots on the right side. It’s not quite what I expect to see from NetEnt, the game feels simpler than many other releases of theirs, but the symbols were nicely designed and there are few symbols, so wins tend to come often to you.
Wild-O-Tron 3000 is a simpler slot machine than most you see from NetEnt, but it offers a chance at a big payout via its random features.
