Review of the Amazing Transformers: Battle for Cybertron Slot Game
The Transformers first appeared in the 1980’s as a set of action figures which would transform from a vehicle such as a car or truck into a robot, either an Autobot (who are the good guys) or a Decepticon (who are the bad guys!). A cartoon soon followed, but it was the film franchise which began in 2007 that has really seen the Transformers come to the forefront again. This slot is based upon the film franchise as a whole, featuring many of the characters from the films on the reels, including Optimus Prime, Megatron, Grimlock and BumbleBee. The slot features the freefall system, making for a very different gaming experience to your normal casino slot, while mystery bonuses and a free spins feature too ensure the action comes thick and fast.

How Transformers Battle for Cybertron Works
This slot looks slightly unusual in the fact that each of the five reels shows four symbols as opposed to the more standard three. However, the game is even more unusual when you start playing as you’ll find the ‘freefall’ system in place. This means that every time a win occurs, these symbols will now disappear and the symbols from above will now fall into their place, with completely new symbols appearing from the top. Any new wins which happen as a result of the freefall will be paid out and the freefalls will continue until you stop winning – meaning the potential for many wins with just a single spin.
The game has a total of 40 win lines, although the features of the game cost an additional 20 credits, making for a total spin cost of 60 credits.
The slot is certainly a fine looking one. The backdrop features the dark industrial planet Cybertron, while each of the characters on the reels are housed in a hexagon shape with either the Autobot or Decepticon symbol attached. The animation is particularly impressive, both when the symbols fall into place and when the freefall action takes place, lines of electricity joining each of the winning symbols before they disappear into thin air. The soundtrack is excellent too, the clunking sound of machinery joining the spinning of the reels.
How to win at Transformers Battle for Cybertron
Wins come along in the base game when you can hit three or more consecutive symbols from left to right on a win line. The title symbol is the top paying one, with 4,000 coins heading your way if you can land five in a row. Optimus Prime and Megatron are next on the pay table, both paying out 800 coins for five in a row. A purple cube represents the wild symbol at the game and will substitute for any other symbols apart from the bonus, enabling many additional wins.
Transformers Battle for Cybertron has the following two bonus features:
Mystery Feature – This is a randomly awarded feature that can appear after any winning spin. One of the transformers will appear and create some chaos on the reels. For example, if Optimus Prime appears he will destroy all of the Decepticons on the reels, which along with the freefall system should aid your chances of extra wins. The best mystery win of all comes when Ratchet appears – he only comes along when two bonus symbols are on the reels and he will add another to enable the free spins bonus round.
Free Spins Bonus Feature – This feature is enabled when landing three or more bonus symbols across any of the reels. You’ll now have a choice of four separate rounds, each based upon a different transformer.
Megatron – 5 free spins with an 8x-10x multiplier
Optimus Prime – 8 free spins with a 4x-10x multiplier
Shockwave – 12 free spins with a 3x-5x multiplier
Bumblebee – 15 free spins with a 2x-4x multiplier
If wanting that big win, the Megatron free spins might be the way to go – you’ll have less opportunities but any win will be a large one. Those wanting a more solid free spins round should choose the Bumblebee option, as this offers the most winning opportunities.
Transformers Battle for Cybertron Overview
The Transformers have become big box office news in recent years and it’s good to see a slot which is as equally impressive. The combination of both the randomly awarded features and the free spins bonus round gives the game a fresh appeal, while the freefall format can make what might have seemed like a small innocuous win turn into a very large one indeed. Transformers Battle for Cybertron, which can be enjoyed at the Unibet online casino, is a must play. Ask Optimus Prime!
