Slots Review – X Men

Software Platform : Playtech

Introduction

X-Men is one of a series of online slots from Playtech based around characters from the Marvel Movies. The X-Men are a superhero team consisting of five members – Professor Xavier, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Storm and Cyclops. Each of these characters has a symbol in the X-Men online slot game.

The other symbols in the game are the villains the X-Men team battle in the films. There are also five villains; Magneto, Rogue, Mystique, Sabretooth and Juggernaut. There are no other additional symbols apart from a wild and a scatter. All the superhero and villain symbols are animated when they form part of a winning combination. The graphics are good and, like most Playtech slots, the game runs very smoothly

Pay Lines and Betting Options

The X-Men online slot is a 25 reel slot game which provides plenty of possible winning combinations. There are loads of betting options to suit online slots players with any budgets. The amount of coins played per line can be adjusted as can the value of each coin. Exact values will vary at different online casinos which offer the X-Men slot game.

Wild Symbol

The wild symbol in this game is a simple textual “WILD”. It substitutes for all of the other symbols except the scatter.

Scatters, Free Spins and Bonus Rounds

The scatter symbol is the X-Men logo and can appear on any reel. Just two scatters anywhere in view pays back your total bet for that spin. If you get 3 scatters, you’ll win five times your bet, 4 scatters is twenty five times your bet and 5 scatters is two hundred times. Three or more scatters also awards the free spin feature

The X-Men free spins feature can be very profitable and is without doubt the biggest attraction to this online slot game. The spins come in two modes – Heroes Mode and Villains Mode. In Heroes Mode, only the hero symbols can appear along with the wild and the extra wild symbol. Heroes Mode is unlimited free spins, until you hit an extra wild symbol on the middle reel. When this happens, the game switches to Villains Mode. In Villains Mode, only the villain symbols appear and you receive just 8 free spins. However, if you hit an extra wild symbol on reel three again, then it reverts back to Heroes mode.

X-Men Slots Jackpots

X-Men features a progressive jackpot which is linked to all the other Marvel Movies games. There are four separate jackpots of varying values and the jackpot game is triggered randomly. The higher your total bet, the bigger the chance of it happening. There is also a fixed jackpot of 10,000 times your line bet if you hit five consecutive wilds.
