The Avengers Slots
The Avengers made their debut comic appearance in 1963, in the Marvel produced ‘The Avengers #1’. Featuring such characters as Iron Man, Thor and Captain America, the Avengers would quickly grow in popularity, and the comic book heroes would move into TV and films. This PlayTech designed slot is based around the film of 2012, featuring Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man and Chris Hemsworth as Thor, and both of these appear on the reels, alongside the Hulk, Captain America, Hawkeye, the Black Widow and Nick Fury. The feature round of this impressive slot is the ‘Wall of Heroes’ bonus which activates one of four different free spins bonus games.
This slot certainly has a modern up to date feel, with slick metallic control buttons and an electric blue background colour. The reels are set in a darker blue, featuring a combination of playing card symbols and the Avengers themselves. These characters are drawn with great detail, appearing almost photographic, with Iron Man, Captain America and the Hulk being the standout symbols perhaps. A high tech soundtrack accompanies the game, while occasionally you’ll hear a deep voice exclaiming ‘Spin to Avenge’.
How to Play & Real Money Versions of The Avengers
Despite all of the superpowers in evidence at the reels, the actual game is something of a standard five reel slot, this one having a set number of 20 win lines. You’ll therefore multiply your ‘line bet’ amount by 20 to set your total stake for each spin.
Someone at PlayTech is clearly a Captain America fan, as this is set as the highest paying standard symbol in the game, with 1,000 coins coming your way for landing 5 in a row. Iron Man and Thor come next at 500 coins, while the rest of the symbols pay out between 400 and 150 coins for a full house of 5. Smaller wins are won when you land three or more consecutive symbols from left to right on a win line.
The S.H.I.E.L.D symbol is the wild at the slot and will substitute for any other symbol at the reels apart from the scatter. However, as well as enabling these additional wins, you’ll also find that this is the highest paying symbol at the game, with a huge 10,000 coins for landing 5 in a row.
During the base game there is one extra reward available. This happens if Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and Nick Fury appear consecutively on a win line. This gives you an immediate win of 200 coins.
The one symbol you’ll want to see more than any other is the Avengers title scatter which activates the feature. Land three or more across any of the reels and you’ll win a prize based on your total bet size (maximum of 100x if you land all 5 scatters) while you’ll also enter the ‘Wall of Heroes’ bonus round. This sees you taken to a screen showing 20 Avengers icons and you’ll pick them one at a time to reveal an Avenger – reveal the same one three times and you’ll enter the relevant free spins round.
Captain America Free Games – Here you’ll have 9 free spins and Captain America’s shield will reveal a multiplier of between 2x and 5x before each and every spin.
Iron Man Free Games – This round also sees you have 9 free spins. The multiplier will start as 1x, but will go up by 1 every 3 spins. The iron man heart symbol makes an appearance during this round in the middle of the 3rd reel and will act as an extra wild.
Thor Free Games – The nine free spins in this game see Thor shoot lightning onto the reels, randomly turning between 0 and 5 symbols wild with the lightning symbol.
The Hulk Free Games – During the nine free spins in this round, the Hulk is stacked on reel 3 throughout the feature and acts as an additional wild.
At the end of each of the free games rounds, you’ll be taken back to the ‘Wall of Heroes’ where an additional bonus round can be won if you can land three Avengers again, although if Loki makes an appearance, the chance is gone.
With so many features already, you might be surprised to hear that the best is yet to come. You’ll find four progressive Jackpots at this game, linked across all of the Marvel slots. The chance to win these is randomly awarded, where you’ll have more opportunities the higher your stake. You’ll be taken to a screen showing 20 squares, each hiding a different Jackpot symbol. Match 3 and you’ll win that Jackpot amount – the choices being Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Absolute Power.
The Avengers Slot Summary
If you want to play a slot that gets your juices going, The Avengers is certainly one you should consider. The game looks and sounds fantastic and will certainly appeal to fans of both the comic books and the films. However, with such a wide range of features, this is a game that will be enjoyed by all players. The randomly added chance of winning a huge Jackpot only enhances this enjoyment. This PlayTech designed slot is highly recommended.
