After Hulk, Playtech starts a new adaptation of a Marvel comic. They are now turning their attention to Iron Man, created in 1963 by the comic genius Stan Lee. As far as graphics are concerned, the game is rather great, with a lot of work put into them and a hero which looks like Robert Downey Jr., who played Tony Stark in the movie adaptation. This is a nice surprise, especially since in Gladiator, another major adaptation from Playtech, the star Russell Crowe did not appear in the game. On top of that, the Iron Man video slot machine is loaded with breath-taking animated sequences which make it all the more immersive. Its soundtrack, however, is a tad too discreet. I would have appreciated it if the music was more present.
The features of the game
The Iron Man video slot machine has 5 reels and 20 payment lines. It offers you no less than 2 Wilds and a Scatter. On top of this, this video slot also offers you to trigger free spins and to take part in a bonus game.
A maximum bet of no less than 1.000 euros
Before each game, you can change what currency you are using. The following values are available: 0,01, 0,10, 0,25, 0,50, 1, 2 and 5 $/£/€. You can also choose to bet from 1 to 10 coins on each payment line. The range of bets is then very wide, since the smallest bet is of no more than 0,01 $/£/€, whereas the maximum bet reaches the amazing amount of 1.000 $/£/€ on a single spin!
An average variance
The jackpot of this slot machine reaches 5.000 coins. It is won with 5 identical Wilds on a single activated payment line. The second highest payment reaches 1.000 coins. You can win it if you get 5 Wilds of any kind on a single activated payment line. The amounts offered by this game remain quite reasonable. The same thing goes for its variance, which remains average. As far as the pay-out rate to players goes, you can count on some 92 to 95 %.
Two Wild symbols
The two symbols depicting Iron Man can replace any other symbol, except for the Scatter, in order to make up winning combinations. They can appear on their own or by columns of three identical ones. In this case, they are called stacked wilds. In order to get everything you can out of these stacked Wilds, you should activate a maximum of payment lines.
These Wilds can also make you win money. If you get 2, 3, 4 or 5 of the same one on a single activated payment line, you win respectively 5, 70, 350 or 5.000 coins. If you get some of both kinds, however, you only win 3, 30, 150 or 1.000 coins.
A Scatter symbol
The Scatter inscribed with Iron Man is a Scatter. It therefore pays out even if it does not appear on an activated payment line. If you get it 3, 4 or 5 times anywhere on the reels, you win respectively 3, 10 or 100 coins. On top of this, you also trigger the bonus game.
A bonus game
You only have to get 3 Scatters on screen, anywhere on the reels, in order to trigger the bonus game. This game starts by a beautiful clip in which you can admire Iron Man chasing an enemy plane. At the end of the animated sequence, he is facing 12 bombs. You must then click on them one after the other. Each one makes you win free spins, money, a multiplier or a Wild occupying all the squares on the middle reel. When you have won free spins and a multiplier, you get your payment and free spins start. During these free spins, if you get 3 Scatters on screen, you win 15 extra free spins. You can therefore win some over and over again without any limitation!
A success as far as its graphics and gaming possibilities are concerned, the Iron Man slot machine offers many advantages which will win over gamblers whether or not they were already fans of the original comic series. After the success of Gladiator and Hulk, Playtech proves itself to be once more extremely comfortable in the adaptation of major licenses.
