Rambo : Demo
The game mechanic used in the official Rambo slot is slightly unusual. The screen is split into 2. At the bottom is a standard set of reels. There you’ll find A to 10 symbols as well as knives, bullets and guns. Rambo is the best standard symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline for a payout of 1.5, 6.25 or 37.5 x stake. The grenade is the wild. This replaces everything bar the scatter and awards 2. 7.5 or 50 x your stake.
5 On Reel features
Above the standard reels is what looks like a shoot ‘em up style video game. Rambo works his through the jungle with each spin. What happens in this screen can have an impact on the reels below. There are 5 On Reel features which are triggered when Rambo destroys a piece of military equipment on the top screen:
- Ammo Box awards 3 extra wilds
- Gun Tower awards 6 extra wilds
- Truck transforms symbols into the same one
- Jeep awards a cash prize of double your total stake
- Tank awards a cash prize of 6x your total stake
Helicopter Bonus feature
The Helicopter Bonus feature triggers when Rambo encounters a helicopter. You’ll then receive 5 bonus spins where the reels are made up of blanks and helicopter symbols. On each spin, 3 positions are targeted. If a helicopter lands in one of the targets, it will be shot by a missile. A payout of 2x, 3x or 4x your total stake is then made.
If the helicopter explodes, even bigger awards are on offer. You’ll pocket 8x, 10x, 15x, 20x or 50x (your stake) for each chopper that’s destroyed.
Desert Mission Free Spins feature
The Desert Mission Free Spins feature is triggered by landing the badge scatter on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin. You’ll leave the jungles of Vietnam and head to the deserts of Afghanistan. 10 free spins then follow. Rambo will go on another shooting spree in the ‘shoot ‘em up’ window above the reels.
Each bit of kit that’s destroyed can create a sticky wild symbol which locks in place for the next 2 free spins. Alternatively, you could be awarded an RPG. This could destroy a helicopter on the following free spin and award a cash bonus. It’s possible to re-trigger the free spins once (for 20 free spins).
This official Rambo movie slot adaptation is rather good. The split screen element of the gameplay works well and the features it delivers offer plenty of action. The variance here isn’t quite as high as some Skywind slots but its volatile enough to keep things interesting.
In terms of payouts, you can win up to 1,000 x stake on each spin or free spin. With a Rambo films being legendary, Skywind have done well to release an official slot game which is action-packed (like the movies). If you like slots that are based on movies, Microgaming’s Jurassic World is a great game to play
