Whats not so hot?
What do you get when you cross your childhood favorite superheros with the thrill and excitement of slots? Easy, you get the best of both worlds all rolled into one in Playtech’s Marvel slots. With a combination of superhero mutants that joined together to form the X-Men along with Playtech’s Marvel Progressive Jackpot network, you will find yourself fully immersed in a slot machine that will more than keep you entertained for hours on end.
Based on the comic book series, these superheros were brought to life on the big screen in 2000.
And now brought to you from Playtech, the game stays inline with Marvel slots format but in this version does not feature the standard playing card symbols but instead has outdid themselves by making every symbol a related X-Men picture or character; a cool and refreshing twist than what we have become accustomed to.
Values on this slots will be from low to high and based on characters we have come to know; Juggernaut, Cyclops, Beast, Storm all the way to the best of the best in Wolverine, Magneto and Professor X. For our “wild” symbols– look for the wild logo with the scatter symbol being the X-Men logo.
Known has the X-Feature versus a bonus, you can win 5x the total bet whenever any of the five heroes form an “X” shape in the middle of the reels. Now while this feature is not big in your pocket book to start, it will start to add up the more you play.
Heroes and Villains will come together in this portion of the game to give you a bonus. The object here is to land 3 of more of the X-Men scatter symbols to trigger the main bonus game. This bonus feature can be a profitable one as there are two aspects of it; the Heroes mode and Villains mode.
The Heroes mode bonus mode will reward you with unlimited free spins and best yet the spins will continue until Magneto lands on reel 3 which will then kick start Villains mode. This bonus will give you 8 free spins which will begin to countdown but if Professor X appears on reel 3 to save you, you will be put back in Heroes mode at which point you go back to unlimited spins.
Once the dust settles and all your free spins run out in Villains mode, hopefully the amount of money you won will put a smile on your face.
Just by playing, every player will have a chance to randomly trigger what we all came to play and win… the Marvel Progressive Jackpot! Have a chance to win the Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Absolute Power Prizes. The more you bet, the better your chances… it’s that simple!
Playtech once again managed to outdo themselves with a game that outshines the competition all highlighted by the bonus game. This slot consists of five reels and twenty five paylines which allows you to wager as little as $.01 to as much as a whopping $1250 on 25 lines.
