Slots Review - Blade

Software Platform : Playtech

Introduction

The Blade online slot game is of several Playtech slots produced under license from Marvel Movies. The game is based around the movies about vampire hunting Blade and the symbols are mostly related to the films. There is Blade himself, a female vampire and various weapons Blade uses on his quest to exterminate vampires. There are also the usual playing card symbols, from 10 through to ace.

In keeping with the movies, the graphics in this online slot have a dark and eerie feel to them. The audio is good and, as is to be expected from Playtech, the animations of the symbol are fantastically done and really add to the feel of this slot.

Pay Lines and Betting Options

Blade is a 20 pay line slot game and players should really play all the lines to improve their chances of hitting a winning combination. Whatever your budget, you’ll be able to enjoy this online slot as there are adjustable betting options. You get to choose how many coins you play per line and the value of those coins too.

Wild Symbol

The wild symbol is the Blade character and appears on all reels. It substitutes for every other symbol except the scatter and the Blade Split symbol.

Scatters, Free Spins and Bonus Rounds

The features on the Blade online slot game are a little more complicated that some other slots games but they can be very rewarding. The first feature is the free games, which are won when the Blade logo appears 3 or more times anywhere on the screen. You get 15 free games with a dynamic multiplier. The multiplier starts at 2x and every time you get a winning spin it goes up by one, to a maximum of 5x. If you get a non-winning spin then the multiplier drops by one, although goes no lower than 2x. During the free spins, the Blade logo acts as an additional wild symbol.

The other feature on this slot game is the Blade Split. If the Blade Split symbol appears anywhere on reel 5 then the last symbol in any winning combination gets split in two and counts as two identical symbols. So if you have four of kind when that symbol appears then it will actually become five of a kind. This feature means winning combinations of six of a kind are possible!

Jackpots

As with all Marvel related online slot games, Blade is linked to a multi-level progressive jackpot. Players are awarded entry into a jackpot game randomly and have the chance to win one of four jackpots of different values. There is also a fixed jackpot available of a huge 25,000 times your bet per line.
