X-Men Marvel Slots Review
Top Jackpot: Progressive
Bonus Games: Yes
Yes, the X-Men are here! When we talk about the X-Men, we are not only talking about the Marvel comic book superheroes, but also the blockbuster motion picture franchise. Well, that brand has extended itself to the world of online casinos as well, as Playtech brings it all to life in a dazzling 25-payline, 5-reel slots game. In this online slots game you can bet up to 10 coins per payline. Coin denominations go anywhere from 0.01 to 5.00, with six stops in between.
If you have watched X-Men you need no introduction to the characters who are the possessors of super powers, and they are all here - Professor Xavier, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Cyclops and Storm, as well as all the super villains - Rogue, Mystique, Sabretooth, Juggernaut and of course, Magneto, the leader. There is a wild in this game, and it is clearly designated with "Wild" while the scatter symbol is the symbol that has the X-Men logo. By the way, in case you're not aware, scatters are those symbols that can "score" for you wherever they appear on the reels, and they lead into casino bonus games for which the player have the opportunity to win extra cash.
These characters, as represented by their symbols, are animated. They all do different things. For example, Storm creates lightning effects and Nightcrawler can transport himself from one place to another, so this symbol may disappear before your eyes. You are not going to find many slot machine games in the online casino world that are going to offer some of these unusual angles.
Here's one of the very cool things, and it is completely consistent with the theme of this casino slots game: if you can get all super heroes forming an "X" over the second, third and fourth reels, you are in for a bonus, which is equal to five times what you wagered. By the way, in case you are not so familiar with the X-Men series, and aren't quite sure about the difference between the heroes and villains, remember that the heroes have blue backgrounds in their squares, while the villains have red backgrounds.
When three or more scatter symbols (X-Men logo) appear on the reels, the Free Games phase is immediately triggered. You can go into "Heroes Mode," where you will have unlimited free games, or the "Villains Mode," where you get eight free games. That doesn't mean, of course, that you can continue spinning forever with no risk. You are going to start off in Heroes Mode, where the heroes and the wild are present.
However, there is a "snake in the grass," so to speak, and that is Magneto, which appears in the game as an additional wild. What you are hoping to avoid is Magneto popping up on Reel 3. That will ruin your free slots experience. You see, if that happens, then all of sudden you go over to Villains Mode, in which case there are villains and the wild in the game. Here you will find an additional wild, which is a super hero (good guy), Xavier. And so the same dynamic goes into effect - if Xavier appears on Reel 3, the game switches back to Heroes Mode, and so on. This can go on for a while, but whenever you have used up eight total spins in Villains Mode the Free Games feature is over and you go back to regular play.
You can get into the slots jackpot game upon any spin at random, and by that we mean the Marvel Multi-Level Mystery Jackpot. You've got the 20-square layout that conceals the jackpot levels of Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power, which we list in ascending order of value. You click on those boxes to bring up the jackpot symbols, and if you get three of them that are identical you win the progressive jackpot.
You don't have to be a kid to have plenty of fun with the X-Men game. And you know that jackpot will make YOU the super hero!
