The Six Million Dollar Man
The Six Million Dollar Man
If you fondly remember the adventures of Steve Austin in the cult US TV show The Six Million Dollar Man, you’ll love having the chance to wallow in nostalgia with Playtech’s slot of the same name. A five-reel, 50-fixed payline title, The Six Million Dollar Man includes an interesting “Bionic Spin” option in which players can choose to invest an additional 50% on top of their currently selected stake to randomly add up to five wilds to the reels. Even without this game mode activated, there are still 15 free games up for grabs with further bonus spins and wilds also added as you play.
Featuring the same retro sci-fi stylings as the TV show it’s based on, The Six Million Dollar Man looks every bit as kitsch as the original series. The reels themselves appear in front of a gigantic computer featuring all manner of esoteric dials and levers, with these buttons controlling all of the slot’s main variables. Symbols used on the reels include Steve Austin, Oscar Goldman, the show’s logo and a trio of bionic enhancements including eyes, hands and legs, while a funky 70s soundtrack plays in the background to capture all the atmosphere of the show when the Bionic Free Spins are activated.
In addition to the Bionic Spin – an optional extra that adds up to five wilds to the reels for a small fee – The Six Million Dollar Man also benefits from a fairly engaging free spins feature that is triggered whenever there or more of the game’s logo scatter symbols appear anywhere on the gameboard. When this happens, players will initially receive 15 free spins, but will have the chance to win a further two bonus games and an additional wild symbol whenever three bionic parts have been collected. Only one bionic part can be collected per spin, but players can use this bonus feature to add up to five wilds to the gameboard and potentially secure an incredible number of free spins.
Given the 50 paylines in The Six Million Dollar Man are fixed throughout, players will only need to worry about their stake per line amount as they play. Available line bets range from £0.01-£5.00 – meaning the game is initially playable from £0.50-£250.00 per spin – but pressing the “Bionic Spin” level will add an additional 50% to your current wager while adding up to five wilds to the board.
A wonderfully stylised game that captures all of the retro kitsch of the show it’s based on, The Six Million Dollar Man is nevertheless fairly progressive in terms of its bonus features. The Bionic Spin option is an interesting addition and allows players to significantly improve the slot’s RTP stat, while the free spins offer plenty of scope for stringing together lengthy prize sequences and huge wins.
