Fantastic Four Slot Review
The Fantastic Four slot created by Playtech takes all the thrills and excitement of the comic book heroes and integrates it into a visually appealing game. The soundtrack included with the game can come across as a little cheesy at times, but overall, fans of the comics or the films will be exceptionally pleased with the gameplay. The reels feature all four characters – Mr. Fantastic, The Human Torch, The Invisible Woman, and The Thing. The rest of the symbols are made up of standard slot game symbols, A, J, K, Q, 9 and 10.
The layout offers up a five reel game with three rows, while a total of 20 paylines have also been integrated. The amount of active lines can be altered to the players preferences, as can the coin value. This begins from the minimum of £0.01 and can be switched up to the maximum of £2.00 per active payline. This allows a total overall maximum wager of £400 to be placed across all 20 paylines. An autoplay button is also included.
The Fantastic Four symbol acts as the game’s wild symbol, substituting for all symbols, except for the scatter icon.
Speaking of which, the Earth acts as the scatter symbol, with three or more of these appearing anywhere on the reels triggering the freespins round, which includes four different features. A total of 12 freespins are provided, and the four different features can be triggered when their corresponding hero fills the entire third reel.
Mr. Fantastic will provide four extra freespins, during which, his symbol becomes an expanding wild, substituting for all symbols, except standard wilds and scatters. The Invisible Woman also gives four freespins, plus one total bet. During the Invisible Woman freespins, should her symbol appear, the multiplier will increase by one. The Human Torch also gives four extra freespins, during which, the entire first reel is filled by his symbol and held in place. Finally, The Thing awards three extra freespins, and every time his symbol appears, it turns wild and freezes in place for the remaining freespins.
The game also has a multi-level mystery progressive jackpot as part of all Marvel Slots. There are four progressives included altogether, from the Power, to Extra Power, to Super Power, to Ultimate Power. All jackpots are won at random.
Fantastic Four is a great game, created by Playtech and playing off the success of the comic books and films perfectly.
