X-Men Slot review
X-Men is another of the Marvel Series slot games which were created by Playtech. The 5 reel 50 payline slot game is based on the comic book superhero and there have been 2 Hollywood films made which starred Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine. Try and get 5 Wild symbols as this will trigger a 10,000 coin jackpot. You can play from 50p to £500 a spin.
X-Men has a few features which makes it a great slot game choice – there’s the X-Feature which is activated when any of the hero symbols occupy the 5 positions on reels 2, 3 and 4 to form an ‘X’ shape. This will instantly reward you with a 5x multiplier prize of your total bet.
There is a Free Games feature which you can trigger by getting 3 or more X-Men logo symbols. This is where X-Men is superb – there are 2 modes: Heroes Mode and Villains Mode. You will start in Heroes Mode and will get unlimited free spins. You will see that only heroes, wild and the Magneto extra wild symbol will appear on the reels. If you get the extra wild on reel 3, you will trigger the Villains Mode.
In the Villains Mode, you will receive 8 free spins. Like the other mode, only villains, wild and Xavier extra wild symbol will appear. This will take you back to the Heroes Mode. Hopefully, you will see Xavier before your 8 free spins are up so you can win more. The Heroes vs Villains free spins game can go on for a long time so sit tight.
Now, now you’ve caught your breath back, there are 4 progressive jackpots to be won. These are activated randomly but be sure to know that if you enter the jackpot game, you will definitely win one. The chances of winning a progressive jackpot are pretty small by the way but we can all hope.
X-Men is a medium variance slot and the graphics/animations are looking a little dated compared to the newer slots they’ve released. Disney (who now own Marvel) will stop offering Marvel slots in 2016 so Playtech have created a clone of this slot in the form of Battle of the Gods. Saying that, I much prefer other Marvel slots like The Avengers or high variance titles like Sultan’s Gold.
