We absolutely love the Marvel series of online slots by developers Playtech. Not only do they have great themes and are really true to source but they also have great special features and are all linked up to the huge Marvel Progressive Jackpot Network. This means that no matter what your favourite characters are, or which Marvel game you choose to play on, you will always have the chance to win huge prizes on this series of online slot machines from Playtech.
The X-Men are recruits of Professor Charles Xavier and are named as such because they all possess the mutant X-gene that gives them extraordinary super powers. In this video slot, you will meet Professor Xavier, Wolverine, Storm and other characters from the X-Men. The story has them fighting as usual against the super villains of the Brotherhood of Mutants, led by the ominous Magneto. The other super villains featured in this slot are Rogue, Mystique, Sabretooth and the mighty Juggernaut. Playtech have decide to base this slot around the films rather than the comic books this time, which means everything is instantly recognizable even for casino players who are non hard-core fans.
This Playtech video slot features five reels, three rows 25 pay lines a to make it a little more exciting for you when you start spinning the reels. The graphics and sound that Playtech have fused together in this slot game are of a high quality and really fitting, though it’s what we’ve come to expect of Playtech online slots.
As we noted earlier, If you’re a fan you will see many of your favourite X-Men characters adorn the reels; Professor Xavier, Wolverine, Magneto, Storm, Cyclops, Juggernaut, Mystique, Sabretooth, Nightcrawler, and Lady Death are all here to help you win big. You need to invest some of your money if you want to win money otherwise you can always try the game out beforehand by paying for free. Each spin you make on the reels will cost you anywhere from 0.01 up to 250 per spin Which is a nice sized upper limit for those looking to win some big time payouts.
Bonuses and Rewards
We now come to the most interesting part, what you need to know to win great prizes and trigger those bonus games. X-Men has two in-game bonus features, one of them is very simple and the other more complex. The simple bonus function is called the X Feature. You can activate it when superheroes occupy five positions on reels 2, 3 and 4 which form an X. This feature pays out 5 times the total bet at immediately. This feature is available in the main game.
The free play function is activated when three or more scatter symbols appear on the reels. This game has two modes, Heroes and Villains and switches between the two modes. Heroes mode has unlimited number of spins and Villains mode has 8 free spins. The game begins in Heroes mode. You will see super heroes and wild symbols appear on the reels. Magneto appears also as an extra wild symbol. If Magneto appears on reel 3 then the game will switch to Villains mode. Here you will see the super villain and the Wild symbol appear across the reels. Professor Xavier appears as an extra wild symbol. If Xavier appears on reel 3 then the game will switch back to Hero mode. Each time the game switches to the Heroes mode, it will restart from the beginning. If you don’t land Xavier to switch it back after the 8 free spins in Villain mode then the bonus feature will end.
