Iron Man 3 Slots
Iron Man 3 was released in 2013 and once again sees Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr, donning his steel suit. The third installation of the series sees Stark lock horns with a terrorist called the Mandarin, a formidable enemy who Stark later realizes he has come across before. This PlayTech designed slot features many aspects of the film on the reels, including three different Iron man suits, Mandarin and Tony Stark’s electromagnetic ‘heart’. With three separate free spins rounds, four progressive Jackpots and added re-spins, this slot is certainly not lacking in features.
The high tech lab where Tony Stark spends much of his free time is the backdrop to the reels, with the Iron Man suits lining the walls. The control panels have a ‘virtual reality’ look in an eye catching electric blue, giving the entire game a very modern, high-tech feel. The symbols on the reels are photo-like graphical representations of the film characters, the three iron man symbols being the most striking of all, adding a great amount of colour to the reels. When a win is achieved using any of these symbols, a hologram of the Iron Man appears to the left of the reels – this is seriously impressive. An appropriate techno-like soundtrack plays throughout your time at the reels, only adding to the theme.
How to Play & Real Money Versions of Iron Man 3
If you strip away all the gadgetry, you actually have something of a standard five reel game, this particular slot having 25 win lines. Those who like to customize their slot experience can change this to nay number between 1 and 25 using the buttons on the control panel, and you’ll set the coin value in exactly the same way.
To become the next Tony Stark you’ll have to build up an empire and this will require much money. You can start by winning at this slot, this achieved by landing three or more consecutive symbols in a row on a win line. The largest wins come along when you land five in a row and the three Iron Man costumes are the highest paying of the standard symbols – wins of 500, 300 and 100 coins coming with the red and gold suit (Mark 2), the grey suit (War Machine) and the stars and stripes coloured one (the Iron patriot) respectively. Mandarin and metallic playing card symbols complete the standard symbols.
The electromagnetic heart of Tony Stark is the wild symbol and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter. This is one expensive piece of kit as hitting five in a row will win you a staggering 10,000 coins.
Re-spins are always good and here you’ll gain one when the three Iron Men appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 (in the same order as their pay out value). The three symbols will remain sticky during the re-spin; however they will now act as scatters with the pay-outs being the same as they are for a win line, although you’ll have the added bonus of gaining a win for just 2 scatters as well.
The title scatter symbol activates the free spins feature when appearing 3 or more times across the reels. You’ll now have a choice of 3 different bonuses:
Mark 42 Free Spins – You’ll have 10 free spins and every time a wild lands it will remain sticky for the next 3 spins. Every time the Mark 42 appears on reel 3 you’ll gain an additional 3 spins.
War Machine Free Spins – This round sees you given 8 free spins and each one will see 3 random wilds distributed across the reels. The War Machine will give you 3 extra spins when appearing on reel 3.
Iron Patriot Free Games – This round has 15 free spins and starts with a random multiplier of between 2x and 5x. The Iron Patriot on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 will add 1 to the multiplier (to a maximum of 5), while spins without an Iron Patriot decrease the multiplier by 1 (to a minimum of 2). The Iron Patriot on reel 3 adds 3 extra spins.
The final feature of the slot is the opportunity to win one of four progressive Jackpots. These are the Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power Jackpots, each one growing larger in turn. The chance of landing a Jackpot is awarded randomly, although the higher your stake, the more opportunity you’ll have of landing one. Access to the Jackpot round sees you pick from 20 squares, each one revealing one of the Jackpot symbols – land 3 of any symbol and that Jackpot is yours.
PlayTech have certainly come up trumps in designing this slot. With four different free spins rounds, added re-spins and the chance of winning a life changing amount of money, the excitement levels remain high throughout. Add this to the excellent graphics on show throughout and you’ve got one of the best games you’ll find online. This is an excellent slot.
