The Avengers

The Avengers was a great movie, based on a whole bunch of Marvel superhero characters. Playtech currently has the licence to make slot machines based on these characters, thereby resulting in the inevitable Avengers slot machine. The slot features key characters from the film franchise, including Director Fury, Iron Man, Thor and more. As you’d expect from a blockbuster slot, this one’s packed full of features.

If 5 different hero symbols (Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and Director Fury) appear consecutively in any order on any payline, it will award you 200x your line bet – the wild symbol doesn’t count towards this feature. Though there are higher paying out combinations, this appeared reasonably regularly during our review play.

Wall of Heroes

Three or more Avenger logos appearing anywhere in the playing area will activate the Wall of Heroes feature. 20 icons will be displayed on screen. You have to find three matching avenger symbols to activate a free spins game – each will award 9 free spins. Once the free spins are over, you’ll be returned to a reset Wall of Heroes where you repeat the process. However, if you uncover a Loki symbol the feature will end.

  • Captain America – Each spin has a different multiplier applied to it at random from 2x-5x
  • Iron Man – The spins start with a 1x multiplier that increases by 1x after every 3 spins. Iron Man’s arc reactor appears as a wild in the middle of reel 3 for each and every spin in this feature.
  • Thor – Thor’s hammer shoots out lightning at the start of each spin, which randomly will turn up to 5 symbols in the playing area wild.
  • Hulk – The Hulk appears as a stacked wild taking up the whole of the middle reel.

 Gameplay

The Wall of Heroes is where you can win big in this slot, particularly if you manage to activate several free spins games in a row. During our review play, we managed to go multiple rounds of free spins and won really big! It seems at first glance that there’s only a 1 in 20 chance to find Loki, but as the symbols aren’t revealed at the end of choosing, we can’t be sure – 1/20 is only a 5% chance, and that seems pretty low.

Thor’s free games can result in significant prize totals, particularly when the random wilds are nice enough to land in a row on a payline!
