The Matrix slot from Playtech is a cracking new casino game that really fits in nicely with the classic movie with game play and cut aways tying in with the theme. The Deja Vu Shuffle feature is one of the smartest mini features seen recently, however while the main free spins bonus rounds are prety cool, we’d like to maybe have seen another couple of bonus games thrown in to make this slot a world beater. As it is it is good, but could have been great!
