The Avengers Video Slot review
The Avengers is a Marvel slot game powered by Playtech software – it has 5 reels and 20 paylines and encompasses all the Marvel superheroes such as Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor. You will also see Elektra and Nick Fury. You can play from as little as 20p a spin to as much as £500 a spin. The Avengers have 5 bonus features in total which are described below.
First up there is The Avengers Assemble On Reels feature – when Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Nick Fury symbols appear consecutively on any payline (in no particular order), a cash prize of 200 times your line bet will be awarded. Basically you will win 10 times your stake when it occurs.
However, you can trigger the 4 free spins features via the Wall of Heroes Bonus feature – this is triggered by getting 3 Avengers logo symbols anywhere on the reels. You will be presented with a wall of 20 Avenger icons to pick from. You will make picks until 3 of the same hero are revealed. However, you want to avoid Loki as this will end the feature.
Anyway, if you trigger the Hulk Free Games feature you will get 9 free spins. The third and middle reel is completely wild with the Hulk taking it over. This will increase your chances of winning bigger. Then there’s the Captain America Free Games feature where you also get 9 free spins. Before each spin is played, a multiplier ranging from 2x to 5x is applied. It starts on 2x going up to 3x, 4x and 5x respectively. It then starts again at 2x. This means you can 3 free spins at 2x, 2 free spins at 3x, 2 free spins at 4x and 2 free spins at 5x.
You have the Iron Man Free Games feature with 9 free spins awarded – the multiplier begins at 1x. Every 3 free spins will see Iron Man float across the reels and the multiplier increasing by 1 up to 3x. The first 3 free spins are subject to a 1x multiplier, the 3rd-6th free spins are subject to a 2x multiplier and the final 3 free spins are subject to a 3x multiplier. You will also see the Reactor symbol in the middle of reel 3 which acts as an Extra Wild.
However, my favourite is the Thor Free Games feature where you get 9 free spins too. Thor throws lightning bolts with his hammer on every free spin – he turns up to 5 random symbols into Random Extra Wilds. The big wins in The Avengers slot game will come from this particular feature as getting 5 wilds can really give you huge wins. I managed to win over 400 times my stake on my first attempt in this feature alone! The maximum win is a whopping 7,000 times your stake which can be won by getting 5 wilds and 5 Random Wilds in this feature.
Now, once you play a particular free games feature, you will be taken back to the Wall of Heroes screen. You will therefore have another chance to play another free games feature. Be careful of uncovering Loki as this will end the feature altogether.
I’ve managed to play all 4 superhero free games features in 1 sitting and played 15 free games features before it all ended. I did find it took a while for all the free spins to play out but I quite like the animations and graphics so didn’t mind at all. The longer you remain in the Wall of Heroes Bonus feature, the bigger your chances of winning decent amounts naturally. As mentioned, the real value is in the Thor Free Games feature as 5 wilds on a couple of free spins can give you huge wins. This is my favourite Playtech slot but you should also try Great Blue which is highly volatile and regarded as a classic.
