As slot games go, Wild-O-Tron 3000 mimics other NetEnt titles like Starburst and more recently, Berryburst in that it has only one main bonus feature. Some players might find that a little too boring but that’s no reason to discount this slot. After all, Starburst, for all its simplicity, has become something of an icon.
Thematically, Wild-O-Tron 3000 could almost be considered a sequel to the 2013 slot Alien Robots. We can think of it as what would happen if those cute cartoon robots finally grew up and got themselves a proper job. Is there the slightest hint of menace in Wild-O-Tron? Yes, we could say that. But we’re fairly certain there’s little risk of robot invasion.
Is this NetEnt’s most ambitious game? No, not really. On the other hand, even the more modest titles from this studio have garnered player interest and retain a consistent following. We wouldn’t be so hasty in dismissing Wild-O-Tron 3000 – it may yet become a mainstay in its own right.

Wild-O-Tron 3000 bonus features
This slot reminds us a little of the Transformers toys, what with the symbols depicting robots and all. There are 7 robots in total, each in different colours. The red one will reward the most generously, with x15 the initial bet when 5 land on a payline. All of the robots can appear stacked, on all 5 reels.
The idea is to form a complete robot – head, torso and legs of the same colour – from individual parts. Getting one of each part on a payline will be considered a win. Forming a complete robot on a reel will act as a stacked single symbol.
Wilds are represented by floating metal globes with a glowing ‘W’ in the middle. These symbols can substitute for any other symbol on the reels and are also quite generous, rewarding with x1.5, x5 or x25 the initial bet when 3, 4, or 5 land on a payline, respectively.
Wild-O-Tron 3000 Free Spins
Quite unusually for a modern NetEnt slot, Wild-O-Tron 3000 doesn’t offer free spins.
Wild-O-Tron 3000 feature
This bonus feature is triggered at random at the start of a spin. Once triggered, it will apply to the next spin. Between 1 and 6 robot part symbols on the next spin will be turned into Wilds.
This has the potential to fill entire reels with Wilds and can boost winnings by up to 500 times the initial stake.
Wild-O-Tron 3000 jackpot
This slot game does not have a progressive jackpot though we are not surprised by this. NetEnt has clearly set out to develop a simple game that does away with the bells and whistles. With a 5,000-coin max win per payline, Wild-O-Tron 3000 can still prove to be a rewarding game.
Wild-O-Tron 3000 has a Return to Player value of 96.01%. This is in line with the majority of NetEnt games, which tend towards the average RTP/medium variance game stat combo.
