Are you ready to step out of the matrix? For fans of the 1999 sci-fi movie of the same name, The Matrix will feel very familiar. This five-reel, 50-payline video slot game from Playtech has all the look and feel of the Keanu Reeves blockbuster, with sharp graphics and a pumping soundtrack; however, this video slot is so much more than just a tribute act. With plenty of bonus features and add-ons, it will keep movie buffs and slots fans thoroughly entertained. Read our full review below.
Get in characterAs a game, The Matrix movie is very well suited to slots. With its dark, mysterious, backdrop, the digital code shows up as cascading lines against which the game plays - just like a matrix within a matrix. The symbols to look out for include letters, mobile phones and sunglasses for entry- level wins, alongside Agent Smith, Trinity and Morpheus for the bigger combination wins. A nice touch here is the true-to-film depictions of the characters, who are all original; however, eagle-eyed players will spot that Keanu Reeves is missing.
Go wild - twiceAlongside the standard symbols in the spin game is the usual wild to help players make combinations. As this is The Matrix, there is another wild in the form of a black cat. This black cat has two functions; aside from being wild, it is linked to the Deja Vu Shuffle feature. If you manage to fill reel five with black cats, this stacked wild will duplicate on reel one. The middle reels then shuffle to award you a new spin with two wilds on every payline.
Free spins gamesOne of the best things about this Playtech game must be the free spins feature games. If you secure a free spin symbol on reels one, three and five, the free spins feature is triggered. This feature offers you a choice of options, just like in The Matrix. Will you take Agent Smith’s offer or the Nebuchadnezzar Free Games feature? In the Agent Smith free spins feature, players are awarded eight free spins in which all the Agent Smith symbols are sticky. As he is a higher paying symbol, the chance of making a three, four or five symbol combination makes this game very attractive. In the Nebuchadnezzar feature, an unlimited number of free spins can be awarded, but watch out - the sentinel wilds are also sticky. Once six sentinel wilds are locked in, the game is over.
Will you take the red pill?As far as movie tie-in slots games go, this is one of the best. It is true that the Neo character is missing; however, as you play, you take on his role anyway. Even if it was not based on the hit movie, the level of features and specials in this game would make it stand out from the crowd. With two wilds, reflecting wilds and two different free spins features to try out, this is a game that will keep you fascinated.
