If you’ve watched a lot of movies or read a lot of books, you have a pretty good idea of what we envision for our future generations. The Jetsons, created in the early 1960s, showed fast personal spaceships, robot assistants, and tons of other advanced technology. Of course, not all of this technology comes to fruition—we don’t have jetpacks or lightsabers. Still, the idea of predicting the future—imagining what life will be in 100 years—is absolutely fascinating.
Metropolis by Arrow’s Edge is a futuristic slot game set in a world dominated by technology. This game has a unique look and feel to it; although most aspects of the game appear to be very modern, the features in this game are actually incredibly simple.
Metropolis has 5 reels, 3 rows and 9 paylines. To change the number of active paylines, use the lines setting near the bottom-left corner of the game. There is an autoplay feature in this game which allows you to automatically play as many as few as 10 and as many as 100 spins. Although Metropolis doesn’t have a traditional bonus feature, there is a respin feature that’s triggered by a very specific combination of symbols.
Since there’s no bonus feature, this game is more about regular payline wins. The lower tier of symbols only pays out for matches of 3 or more of a kind. These symbols include the 9 and 10, the J and Q, and the K and A. The maximum reward for these symbols is 300x your bet per payline. The higher tier of symbols pays out for matches of 2 or more. These symbols include the bous, the cityscape, the red and white robot, and the orange and white robot. The highest reward from these symbols is 10,000x your bet per line. Scatter wins are multiplied by your total bet and added to any payline wins.
The wild symbol, the girl, substitutes for anything but the scatter symbol. If you land one or more girl symbols on reels 1, 2, 3 and/or 4 and a Metropolis symbol on reel 5, you’ll trigger the respin feature. The triggering girl symbols will expand to cover the reels and stay on the reels until all of your respins are used. You may get between 1 and 10 respins. This game cannot be retriggered by landing the same symbol combination during your respins.

If you’re looking to try this game out for free before betting cash, all you have to do is search for “Metropolis” on Google or at your favorite online casino. Most websites will allow you to play for free in a matter of minutes, but you’ll have to register for an account if you want to play for cash.
There is no mobile version of this game available. You won’t find anything on the App Store or Google Play, and since the game uses Adobe Flash Player, it can’t be played on your smartphone’s web browser.
Although the aesthetics of Metropolis are very futuristic, the game itself is not. There are only 9 paylines in this game which makes it easy to understand, and there really aren’t very many features for a newer 5×3 slot game. Many slot games nowadays have both a bonus feature and a free spins feature—this game has neither. The respins feature is somewhat similar but the trigger is a bit complicated.
The reel action is a bit off in this game and there is no background music so it can feel a bit vacant at times. Overall, though, the design of this game is very pleasing.
Players who are looking for a simple slot game will love Metropolis—it’s a great mix of simplicity with a cool feature or two thrown in. But if you’re looking for something packed with features and ways to win, Metropolis isn’t the slot game for you.
