- Richard Anderson has passed away at the age of 91
- His memory continues to live through the cult 1970s TV show which also inspired Playtech casino slot
But casino game makers have made a habit of seizing on classic TV series on which to base a slot.
Richard Anderson, who was best known for his roles in Bionic Woman and his portrayal of Oscar Goldman in The Six Million Dollar Man, has passed away at age of 91.
He will always be remembered for his role in the cult 1970s TV show, but those who want to go back in time and refresh their memories can also do that with Playtech’s The Six Million Dollar Man slot.
Game staying true to the original series
The Six Million Dollar Man followed the story of Steve Austin, an astronaut and test pilot who was turned into a super spy thanks to bionic implants and wonders of technology.
In the original show, it was Lee Majors playing the role of Austin, while Richard Anderson was his co-star playing Oscar Goldman, his boss at the secret government agency.
Symbols in the game will be familiar to all the show fans, as you’ll encounter the Six Million Dollar Man himself (acting as a wild symbol), and Goldman, which is one of the higher paying symbols players will like to see pop on the reels.
As far as graphics and sounds are concerned, Playtech developers have stayed true to the TV show, creating a comfortable, familiar feeling for all those who used to enjoy Steve Austin’s adventures back in the day.
There are even original cut-scenes from the show when you connect winning lines with Austin or Goldman characters.
Powerful bionic features for big wins
The Six Million Dollar Man slot features no less than 50 paylines, which means winning opportunities abound with this one.
Lining up five Steve Austin symbols will pay 4,000 coins, while five of Oscar Goldman symbols pay the handsome 500 coins.
Players start with 15 free spins, but collecting bionic body parts during the bonus will add more spins and you can stack up to five wild symbols on the reels.
Looking to spice things up a bit more, Playtech also gives players a chance to play Bionic Spins instead of the regular ones.
Playing a Bionic Spin costs 50% more than the regular spin, but it gives a chance of up to five wilds appearing randomly on the reels, boosting your winning chances significantly.
Instead of just watching the show, you’ll get to take part in all the action and potentially become a (not quite) Six Million Dollar Man (or Woman) yourself, as you can play the game as high as $25 per single line.
The game is available at a number of online casinos including bgo.
