A 'Wild' logo is the wild for the game while the X-Men logo is the scatter symbol. The wild replaces all other symbols except the scatter X-Men logo to create a winning combination. If you receive two or more Wild symbols on your active payline, the game offers a separate payout.

On landing three or more X-Men logos the Heroes Mode of the game initiates and the Unlimited Free Spins Feature gets triggered. The bonus round continues with unlimited free spins till you hit Magneto on reel three. This initiates the Villain Mode of the game, which awards eight free spins only. However, you can jump back to the Heroes Mode by landing Professor X on reel three and enjoy unlimited free spins till being pulled back into the Villain Mode by Magneto.
While the bonus round starts in the Heroes mode, the Villain mode finishes it when you run out of the eight free spins. Your wins are doubled and paid for each winning combination. A nice run of luck and you can win big by flipping between the Hero and Villain modes.
