Robotnik’s Space Chase

Come play with Robotnik, the adorable space robot with magical powers to grant sticky stacked and multiplying wilds with free respins. This 5 reel Yggdrasil gem doesn’t have any bonus games, but it does have a huge RTP of 96.7% and max coin wins of up to 120,000.

Gameplay

Robotnik is a fun and uplifting space-themed slot game with beautifully crafted graphics that are the trademark of its Swedish game makers, Yggdrasil. It’s set in outer space, amongst the stars and planets, and the simplified synthesizer soundtrack fits in perfectly with the theme.

There are 5 reels, 4 lines, 40 paylines from left to right and players can win up to 120,000 coins in a single spin. There are also 10 base symbols, which are all space rock crystals that gently float around their position on the reels. The red crystals have the highest payouts, with up to 500 coins for a combination of 5, but in fact even the lower base symbols pay out up to 100 coins, which is pretty high comparatively.

One unusual feature is the option to change the game speed and quality in the settings, although how this translates to gameplay was unclear.

Special Features

As mentioned, there’s no free spins session or bonus games in Robotnik, but there are some super wild features flying around out there. Firstly, whenever a wild appears, it triggers a free reel respin and stays sticky during the respin. If a new wild appears during the free respin, then both wilds stay sticky and the reels spin again. There are also two kinds of wilds: stacked wilds and x3 multiplier wilds, which can really boost your balance.

There are also three ways you can get wilds. Firstly, they can simply appear in a normal spin rotation. Alternatively, you can be given them by Robotnik, an adorable little flying robot with permanently sad eyes, strongly reminiscent of ‘Wall-e,’ flying onto the screen and transforming regular symbols into wilds. Finally, Robotnik can also burst through a symbol and change it into a x3 multiplier wild, which both stays sticky and triggers a free respin.

Verdict

With no additional bonus games and a cutesy theme, Robotnik is not for everyone and doesn’t offer as many thrills as most other video slots. It does include a swag of special wilds, though, that really increase the payouts in the base game.
