Who doesn’t love superheroes? Whether it is Superman, Batman or Spiderman, a single super hero can create mania that movie makers, game developers and retailers bank on. And when you have four, instead of just one super hero, the excitement is multiplied. Banking on the superhero craze is yet another game developer called Playtech, which has launched the Fantastic 4 online slots, based on Marvel's popular series. Featuring the four heroes, this game is sure to entertain and reward slots players of all kinds.
Fantastic Four is a 5-reel slot with 50 paylines. Based on Marvel's The Fantastic Four, the slot game features Mr. Fantastic, The Invisible Woman, The Human Torch and The Thing as symbols on the reels. Alongside these four characters, the slot also features the Fantastic Four logo, and card values A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9. The interface is simple and clean, to suit the style of these sophisticated heroes. The backdrop of the game is a blue that resembles the color of the suits worn by them.
The graphics are smooth and the music is minimal, and easy on the ears. However, you can turn the audio off it you like. The game has the Bet Max and Auto Start buttons for ease of play.
Fantastic Four has 50 paylines, with a minimum bet of $0.01 and a max bet of $5 per line. Players can bet a minimum of $0.50 per spin and a maximum of $500 when wagering on all 50 lines. To start playing this game for real money, register with a Playtech partnered site and make a deposit. Then, simply select the number of lines you wish to bet on and the bet amount for each line to determine the total bet for the spin. Once you set the bet amount, you can also use the Auto Start button for playing the next 10, 20, and 30 and so on up to 99 spins automatically, for the same amount.
The max bet is $2,500, which is $50 on each of the 50 lines, making it a great slot for high rollers. What makes this slot so attractive is that it is linked to the Marvel Progressive jackpot, which pools the bets from all other Marvel slots featured on that casino, or network of casinos. Should you get lucky and hit the jackpot, you could be taking home thousands or even hundreds of thousands as prize money.
The Fantastic 4 slot game has a wild symbol as well as a scatter symbol. The logo of the superheroes is the wild, while the earth symbol is the scatter. The wild substitutes all other symbols except the earth symbol and pays the highest prize. The scatter symbol, when it appears three times anywhere on the reels, triggers the free spins bonus feature. The player can play as many as 12 free games with four unique features - each one based on each super hero character.
The unique superhero bonus features are triggered when the superhero appears on the third reel and acts as the expanding wild, covering it entirely during a free spin. For instance, when Mr. Fantastic appears on and covers the whole of the third reel, player wins 4 extra free spins, with Mr. Fantastic symbol acting as the expanding wild and offering the player a better chance to win.
In this slot game, players have a chance to win one of the four linked Marvel Progressive Jackpots, including the Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power jackpots. At present, this fantastic slot game from Playtech is available for real and free money play online, and not on mobiles.
