New Game of the Week: Wild Robo Factory
Wild Robo Factory is a 4×5 slot game from casino game developer Yggdrasil. The action subsequently takes place in a dark factory amidst 12 mechanical workers that have gone wild under the command of robots run amok.
As the game begins, the opening screen of Wild Robo Factory states: “The Robots Have Taken Over!” With robots in the background and others rolling right in front of the reels, there is always something happening in this new slot game.
This latest release from Yggdrasil is a futuristic game that puts players in a position to win up to nearly €360K. And the company’s senior product strategist, Jonas Strandman, is excited about it:
“Wild Robo Factory is a highly original addition to our portfolio, packed with unique features and game mechanics. The free spins have some serious win potential if you get big robots, system overloads, or re-triggers.”
About Wild Robo Factory
With five reels and four rows, Wild Robo Factory has a factory feel, complete with sparks flying in the background and machine parts surrounding the reels.
Coin values start at $0.01 and run up to $5.00. Combined with 25 paylines, that starts the betting at $0.25 and maximises it all the way to $125.00. The RTP (return-to-player) percentage is 96.4%.
The sound for the game is low-key twangy music playing in the background that fits perfectly with the theme of the game, a bit mysterious and slightly spooky. There is the option to turn off the sound effects and/or the ambience sound.
Players can also adjust the spin speed of the reels from turtle-mode to rabbit. And autoplay is also an option, with up to 100 spins ready to go.
There are several base game symbols, each of which have their own powers, some wild and others triggering free spins. The primary Robos are Robo Wilds (anything from 1×1 to 2×4 symbols that move through the conveyor belt to work on the reels as they go), x2 Wild Robos (adding a 2x multiplier to the offerings), and Free Spin Robos (always 1×1 symbols that fly onto any row and move left).
As for the main game symbols, they are as follows:
- Reddish/orange robot: pays 375 for 5 symbols
- Purple robot: pays 180 for 5
- Green robot hand: pays 150 for 5
- Blue robot arm: pays 120 for 5
- Heart, spade, diamond, or club: each pays 50 for 5
How to Play This Robot Themed Slot
There are a lot of random things that can happen during base play in Wild Robo Factory. As mentioned above, the Robos jump on the conveyor belt completely randomly and move across the screen. They stop at one reel, then stop at each reel for another spin on the way toward the left of the screen. This gives multiple opportunities for them to work their magic on the reels.
Those Robos move along the conveyor belt, and the subsequent spins are the Robo Respins.
There are also Robo free spins, which happen when at least three “free spins” symbols land on the reels during base play. It can also happen when the Free Spin Robo appears and gives an extra chance to land those three symbols.
- 3 symbols = free spins with 5 Robos
- 4 symbols = free spins with 10 Robos
- 5 symbols = free spins with 15 Robos
Another random occurrence during base play and during free spins is that a low-paying symbol can be converted to a high-paying symbol if it guarantees a win. For example, a green symbol will transform into a green robot symbol. This is the Symbol Swap feature.
There is also a System Overload feature, another random happening that reverses all Robos if at least three of them have moved along the conveyor belt past the first reel. There is a limit of four system overloads during a free spin session, but there are no limits otherwise.
The features are many in Wild Robo Factory. Some of the wins depend on the spins themselves, while others are helped greatly by the Robos. The randomness gives the game a bit of excitement and keeps players looking for something to happen on multiple levels.
Where to Play Wild Robo Factory
Due to the randomness of most of the features, the game can feel like it plays at a higher variance than it really does. Players should be patient and enjoy the ride.
Considering the game only debuted on June 24, many online casinos are still signing up to offer Wild Robo Factory. Meanwhile, casinos like LeoVegas, Play Amo, and Betchan already feature it in their slots and new casino games sections.
