Running for four years in the 1970s, The Six Million Dollar Man slot was typical of action series of the time: dodgy special FX, funky soundtracks, and equally dodgy acting. Wonder Woman and Spiderman took the popular comic books and transported them to some scrubland evidently a mile outside Los Angeles. Equally, The Six Million Dollar Man paved the way for a raft of ’80s action TV shows.
The original show starred Lee Majors as pilot Steve Austin, who – left crippled after a crash – is rebuilt by the government with cutting edge special limbs, super strength, and a nice side parting.
Playtech’s action-themed slot features actual images from the show and some of the memorable sound FX too. If you’re too young to remember the original programme, revel in some nifty gameplay and nice reels set-ups. The Six Million Dollar Man slot machine also features two cool bonus features.
High Volatility Over 50 Paylines
If you’ve played SG Gaming/Bally’s Wonder Woman online slot, you’ll get a kick out of this gambling game. The Six Million Dollar Man is played over 50 paylines (all fixed) so it can be a killer for your bionic bankroll.
Players can select their line bets via a funky meter that shifts along as you press the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons. Top regular bets stand at 25.
Spins are made by hitting the ‘SPIN’ lever. However, look out for the BIONIC SPIN lever. This adds 50% to each total bet and lets you play in ‘Bionic Spin Mode’. What do you get for your additional stake? Well, during each spin, 0-5 random Wild symbols will be added to the reels.
Enjoy Stacked Symbols Across All Reels
Most of the regular symbols in The Six Million Dollar Man bonus on the five reels. Heart rate monitor symbols pay 20x your line bet for three of a kind, but the bionic limbs (leg, hand, eye) all pay 25x for 3OAK. The best you can expect is 300x the line bet for 5OAK.
The regular 10-to-Ace symbols are pretty poor payers. OAK is the best you can find, but when you’re betting 50x for any spin, it’s a bad return in real cash. While the payouts are pretty low, most symbols appear stacked, as does Oscar Goldman – Steve Austin’s boss. He pays out for just two matching symbols, while five Oscars pays 500x your line bet.
Wild Steves & Bionic Free Games
Steve Austin’s image acts as the online slot’s Wild symbol. Steve substitutes for all regular symbols in the online casino game other than the Scatters. Just two Wilds on a winning payline dishes out a 25x-line bet win, but five Wilds awards a 4000x-line bet jackpot.
Look out for The Six Million Dollar Man Scatter pays anywhere, and pays pretty poorly. However, three or more Scatter symbols triggers ‘Bionic Free Games’, with 15 free spins activated.
As you collect bionic limb symbols (in order of foot, arm, and eye) you’ll fill a progress bar on the side of the screen. Once you collect all three body parts players win two free games and an additional Wild. This Wild symbol is added to the Stacked Wild symbols seen on screen. That’s why those 15 free games can soon turn into a nice cash-out.
Played over 40 paylines, and featuring actual images from the 1970s show, Wonder Woman Gold has free spins Scatter symbols and three separate progressive jackpots to win. There are also expanding Wild symbols added.
And if you like bumping up your stake, the ‘Buy a Bonus’ feature allows gamblers to automatically ‘purchase’ a bonus round.
Bite The Bullet & Hit The Bionic Spin
There’s no doubt that The Six Million Dollar Man is high on volatility. The payouts are poor unless you make use of the Wilds on the reels, so it’s worth braving the Bionic Spin button and gambling the extra.
With random Wilds added, we managed to hit one or two 47. However, we should stress they were few and far between. Try the free Six Million Dollar Man slot today and see if it’s worthy of a safe spin.
