Iron Man 2 Slots
This slot might be numbered ‘2’, though it is the first Ironman slot in the PlayTech range. The first ever Iron Man slot was based on the original comic book. This was produced by rival slot maker Cryptologic / Playtech. Iron Man 2 is part of the Marvel Jackpots range – a group of flagship slots that share a huge progressive jackpot. The latest instalment, Iron Man 3, can also be enjoyed at PlayTech casinos. This game includes a free spins round with a twist – increasing multipliers – which can lead to some outsized wins.
You’ll immediately notice the strange look to the symbols in Iron Man 2. These are all different views of Iron Man, which is not so unusual in itself. The difference is that 6 of the main symbols are double height. They take up 2 of the 3 rows for symbols on the reels (simply counting as 2 for the purposes of calculating wins). With some at the top and others at the bottom of the reels, this creates a somewhat confusing look to the game. Fortunately, it only takes a couple of spins to ‘tune in’, and you’ll be able to spot the wins without any trouble.
In addition to the different Iron Man views, you’ll find Tony Stark, the eagle logo and a very nicely drawn villain on the reels. There is mechanical undulating sound while you spin, plenty of bangs and crashes for wins – and lots of animations on the reels too. If anything this slot is a little too hectic as far as the overall visual / audio experience is concerned.
How to Play & Real Money Versions of Iron Man 2
25 win lines cross the 5 reels of this game. These are fixed in place, though you can adjust your line bet amount from just 1c to $1 per line and also the default coin amount up to $10 (25c minimum spin cost, $250 max). Auto play is a simple setup, with the number of spins and a + / – toggle in view.
The silver logo has the biggest single prize, and is also the wild symbol – substituting for everything except the Iron Man 2 logo to create winning combinations. This is worth 3000 coins for 5 on a line, with 1000 for 4, 100 for 3 and 10 coins for just 2. Tony Stark is next at 1000 coins for 5, with 500 for 4 and 75 for 5. After that comes the female lead, followed by the villain.
Double symbols are worth less in terms of individual wins – though of course being double they will come in a lot more frequently and often pay multiple times. The red and silver Iron Man views are worth 200 and 150 for 5, with the others from 100 down.
Iron Man 2 logos are the scatter symbol, and pay out a multiple of your total bet for 2+ anywhere on the reels. The top prize for 5 is a generous 100x your total bet. Getting 3 or more of these symbols in view will trigger the free spins bonus game.
Bonus Game for Iron Man 2
There are two interesting aspects of the bonus game – which is essentially a free spins round with some dramatic music. First there is an additional symbol, which appears in the middle of the 3rd reel. This is a special wild logo (it says ‘wild’) and substitutes for all of the other symbols except the scatter / logos.
Even better is the increasing multiplier. This starts at 2x for all wins, and every 2 spins it goes up by 1 until your 10 spins are complete. This means you can enjoy some very profitable spins towards the end of this bonus game.
The only other bonus feature is the PlayTech jackpot game. This is triggered at random on all the participating slots. You see a grid, and choose from the logos, each one will reveal one of 4 different jackpot types – ranging from minor to ultimate. When you hit 3 logos the same, that is the jackpot you will win. The biggest of these is often 6-figures, and will often go into 7-figure territory.
Once you get over the slightly disjoined and crazy setup of this slot, you’ll find a solid and enjoyable game underneath. There is not too much in the way of on reel features, with just a standard wild and scatter symbols in play. The main action is in the free spins round, where your wins are multiplied and helped along by an extra wild which stays in place throughout the 10 spins. This is not the most advanced of the Marvel range of slots, though it is certainly entertaining enough to be worth taking for a quick spin.
