What is this mobile slot about?

The Battle for Cybertron slot has started, but it’s the hunt for the free spins that’s your real mission on this mobile slot.

We could say that this 5 reel, 40 payline video slot will bring children of the 90’s back to their favourite day time cartoon and toys, but in reality, anyone who has seen the now infamous Michael Bay Transformer’s movies will be more familiar with the modern Transformer’s style.

Still, that’s not a bad thing. This mobile slot looks good, and reminds us more of the Marvel series of mobile slots from Playtech than the other tumbling reel IGT mobile slot Pixies of the Forest. Transformers: Battle for Cybertron mobile slot has all the chaos, bonus features and big hits that felt like playing The Incredible Hulk. It’s not just the feel, but touches like the fact that you get different free spins bonus features (like in Fantastic Four) that shouts high risk, high rewards, and high octane fun.

What this mobile slot is asking you to choose when you pick your free spins is what volatility you’d like to play your spins. Are you going to risk it all on 5 spins, but 15x multiplier? Or are you going to play it safe and take 15 free spins with only a 2x multiplier?

What are you going to do warrior? Go for guts, glory or neither? 

This is also why the return to player rate for this mobile game has such a huge range of 92.61% to 96.47% – those free spins change the stats completely.  If you don’t watch out, your money will gown down, but not as fast as you think.

This is is nice interim slot for casual gamblers who are willing to start risking a little bit more money for bigger wins. You’ll keep getting a small win here and there (those wild symbols show up often to save your life)  – but not enough t0 bring you back from the dead.

But much like Megatron just refuses to die, you will suddenly hit a 200x your bet win in the middle of the base game and come back from the brink of extinction. The free spins are as unpredictable, able to leave you with only 20x your line bet, to 4000x your line bet.

If you love that pit in your stomach feeling when you play slots, keeping you at the edge of your seat with every spin (and robots from space), we couldn’t recommend Transformers mobile slot more highly. It’s so chaotic, that out of nowhere you’ll get the robots randomly fighting a battle straight on your screen, destroying a horde of symbols, allowing more to tumble down from above.

Too many bonus features to comment on. Read them all below and then go play this slot.

In-game bonus features

Cascading Reels: Much like Gonzo's Quest or Rook's Revenge, on every win the symbols disappear, allowing more symbols to fall down from above at no extra cost, giving you a mini-free spin.

Wilds: The purple cube is the wild symbol substituting for all other symbols except the bonus symbol. It shows up often and you'll be glad for it.

Mystery Features: These random bonus features are triggered... euh... randomly. Yeah, ok, we could have phrased that better, but hey, it's late and we've been playing Transformers: Battle for Cybertron slot for the last hour. Everything is turning into one big world destroying robot.

Talking of which, any of five robots will randomly appear on the screen and destroy symbols on the reels, allowing for a free cascading feature.

Optimus Prime destroys all the Decepticon symbols on show in the reels.

Megatron destroys all Autobot symbols on the reels.

Grimlock and Shockwave burns away a random (but usually great) pattern of symbols.

Random Ratchet Feature: A continuation on the feature above, but instead of burning away symbols, when you have two bonus feature on the reels, Ratchet will randomly show up and give you a third bonus feature, triggering the free spins.

Bonus & Free Spins: Three bonus features anywhere on the reels will trigger the free spins. Here you'll be able to choose your Transformer of choice and a randomly selected multiplier. It's a hard to hit feature though, so you'll be chasing it for a while.

We wish we could advise you as to which to go for, but we can't. This feature has no logic behind it that we can find, we've taken 5 free spins and won nothing, and 5 free spins and won 300x our bet. the same happened on 15 free spins, but you are less likely to get big wins over 100x your bet.

  • Megatron: 5 Free Spins - from 8x to 10x multiplier
  • Optimus Prime: 8 Free Spins - from 4x to 10x multiplier
  • Shockwave: 12 Free Spins - from 3x to 5x multiplier
  • Megatron: 15 Free Spins - from 2x to 4x multiplier

Closing thoughts

Low risk and conservative players beware - this is one step up from your usual casual game play, so you'll have to budget accordingly. Yet if the toys taught is anything, is that anyone could be recruited to fight next to the Transformers for the Battle of Cybertron.

A mobile slot that likes to play with your hopes and dreams, it will elate you as much as crush you.

But if you are willing to allow for that, enjoy Transformers mobile slot as a game that provides vivid entertainment, action packed reels AND the hope of big wins.
