Robots are a surprisingly popular slot theme. You don’t get them often, but they have showed up in quirky and fun slots. Plus, when Yggdrasil Gaming is taking up the theme, you are sure to get something whimsical that is going to be a lot of fun.
As the name would suggest, we find ourselves in a robot factory and the robot wilds are rolling along on a conveyor belt that sits in front of the reels. In the background, the factory is full showing the inner workings of robot production and the details here are a lot of fun to observe. Needless to say, the slot is graphically superb.
On the reels, we get various robo parts as the high value symbols. The big robo head will pay out 375 coins for 5 on a payline. The robo torso pays out 180 coins for such a win and robo hand still pays out 150 coins for 5 of it. The claw is worth 120 coins.
We also get the card suit symbols that match the robo parts in colour, which is important in one of the base game features.
You can play this game from 0.05 to 125.00.
Robo Wilds don’t spin across the reels in this game, they show up on the conveyor belt that moves in front of the reels. They can be 1 symbol high or up to 4 symbols high. They can also show up us Twin Wild Robos covering 2×2, 2×3 or 2×4 symbols on the reels. Or Wild Pattern Robos, which cover 4 symbols as well.
Oh, and there are Multiplier Wild Robos, which have a 2x multiplier attached to them.
Some of these robos look a little grim, others are quite adorable. We’re usually happy to see them, because they give us free re-spins as long as they keep wandering along the reels. Once they arrive on the conveyor, they land on reels 3, 4 or 5 and then move along the reels until they keep moving away into the bowels of the factory.
Another base game feature is the Symbol Swap. Here low-paying card suit symbols are randomly swapped for their matching high-value symbols on the reels. It can happen at any time (during the free spins as well) and will almost always result in a win.
You trigger the free spins with at least 3 Free Spin Robos. These spin along on the reels, but here and there one of them acts like a Wild Robo and comes flying along the conveyor belt, where it will also move down the reels until it vanishes on the other side. This might help increase your chances to get three in a spin.
Instead of free spins, you get wild robos in this game. They’re usually spaced out between 1 and 3 spaces and keep moving down the conveyor as well until the last one has moved off.
Depending on the number of Free Spin Robos that triggered the feature, you will get 5 Robos for 3 scatters, 10 Robos for 4 scatters and 15 Robos for 5 scatters.
Spaced out far enough, you can end up with quite a few spins here. However, the closer the Robos are on the conveyor, the higher the chance to get wins with lots of wilds on the reels at the same time.
Also, there’s the System overload, that may randomly trigger during the free spins. It rolls the conveyor back by a few positions, thus also bringing the Robos back up and giving you a few more spins to play.
It is possible to retrigger the feature with at least 3 more Free Spin Robos on the reels.
The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) of Wild Robo Factory is 96.40%, which is great value. The volatility in this game ranges from medium to high and that means this game can eat up your budget. The walking wilds are a great feature, but the wilds don’t show up as often as we would like them to.
When we played this game, we appreciated many things about it. The graphics are awesome, the gameplay is entertaining, and decent wins are possible with those Twin Robo Wilds. But in the long run, the slot left a hefty dent in our budget, which was something we did not appreciate very much. So, unless you hit a decent win, you might want to be careful when playing this one.
