Update: Unfortunately Marvel slots are no longer available to play at casinos online. However, you can try some DC games including the Batman slot.
Playtech know how to make slots, there’s no denying that. Yet this Marvel Fantastic Four slot we feel it’s a little lacklustre compared to the rest of it’s brothers and sisters.
Much like the movies, this Fantastic Four slot machine is a little hit or a miss.
Yes, it’s part of the Marvel progressive jackpot of slots, meaning that you can potentially win one of four jackpots on any spin. But that doesn’t mean the game play will stack up.
However, because of it’s more traditional take on the most unlikely of superheroes teams, the overall theme here really works. Fans of the comics will enjoy 5 reels and 20 paylines that remain true to the characters.
You’ll find all your favourite heroes on the reels. Mr Fantastic, Susan Storm (aka The Invisible Woman), Johnny Storm (aka The Human Torch) and The Thing are the highest paying symbols.
They are joined on this outer space slot adventure by the metallic looking A – 10 symbols, the silver Fantastic 4 logo which acts as the wild, and the world scatter symbol.
The graphics and sounds are quite basic but don’t let that deter you from playing a few spins. There’s more to this Fantastic Four slot game than meets the eye.
If you are familiar with the other Marvel jackpot slots like The Avengers, or one of our favourites The Incredible Hulk, then you’ll know that there are four big prizes to be won, ranging from hundreds to hundreds of thousands in cash.
All part of the Marvel network of jackpot casino games this one is no different.
Randomly triggered on any spin, you’ll suddenly enter the jackpot game where you get to pick from a board of symbols until you match three of the same.
Even though it is said that the bigger you bet the more chance you have of trigger it, we’ve heard big wins from all level of game play. Though, that said, it’s not one we’ve ever managed to hit ourselves.
What we should concentrate on is the game play, because any good slot should still entertain without just relying on the the draw of the jackpots.
And it’s in the unique free spin games that this Fantastic Four casino slot packs a punch.
The 12 free spin bonus games are triggered by finding three or more of the world symbols anywhere across the five reels.
Find a stack of one of the main character symbols, and you’ll get 4 bonus spins added with a special extra feature aimed to help you win more.
We found that the Mr Fantastic and Invisible Woman bonus games were triggered more often than the other two, perhaps just bad luck, perhaps it’s the way the game works?
Even so, you’ll need a decent bank roll to hit them as they are hard to find, usually within 150 – 200 spins.
Those four progressive slot jackpots help a little, but actually it’s the free spin games where you’ll get your just rewards here. That said there is some potential for some decent wins in the Fantastic Four slot base game, so don’t despair.
Our heroes usually come to the rescue at just the right time to you feel like you are getting value for money.
That said, if it’s the jackpot that draws you here, and want something a little easier to play, then we recommend you also check out the Jackpot slot Hall of Gods by NetEnt.
However, though it’s not visually as impressive as some of the more recent Marvel slots, the Fantastic Four still manage to charm us, with a varying RTP up to 96% and it’s medium volatility keeping your bank roll steady for a while.
With a minimum bet of 0.20 per spin, ranging up to an impressive 400 cash per spin, it allows all types of betters, big and small, the opportunity to spin.
And once you get deep into the action of the free spins, with multipliers, expanding wilds, frozen wilds and more, it’s an entertaining way to get more for less.
