Playtech brings the Marvel superhero Iron Man alive through this online slot game. This game is based on the famous movie, and starts with Iron Man in his armor. The reel symbols are all based on the Iron Man legend while Tony Stark is Iron Man’s alter ego.
The symbols of the game include the Stark Enterprises silver suitcase, the Plane and the high value cards from nine to Ace. All of them have been elegantly crafted with Tony Stark’s image in mind.
While Iron Man’s Logo is the scatter symbol. there are two Iron Man symbols exhibiting great animation. One has Iron Man hurling a laser beam wherein a flash of light covers the entire symbol for a second. The other has Iron Man flying amidst clouds over a city.
The best piece of animation of the game is when Iron Man expands across the reel. This is when a cloud of orange smoke covers all existing symbols. Iron Man then zooms vertically upwards at top speed when the smoke clears.
Iron man offers a wide variety of coin denominations to choose from ranging from 0.01 to 5.00, altogether with 8 stops. While the game offers 20 paylines, players can bet a maximum of 10 coins per payline. The slot game however does not display the number of coins; it only displays the line bet.
The Auto Play feature can be set for a maximum of 99 auto spins while the Bet Max button automatically selects 20 paylines and 10 coins per line of the chosen coin denomination.
Iron Man’s logo is the scatter symbol which offers scatter payouts if three of them appear anywhere on the reels. These symbols also trigger the Missile Attack Bonus game, a bonus game on the second screen with a free spins bonus round.
The aim of the bonus round is to shoot down the missiles and starts with Iron man chasing a plane. It is this plane which releases missiles directed to a city and you have to click all missiles, one at a time.
When the missiles explode, they each reveal a bonus credit, a multiplier or some free spins. All of them are separately added and the determined number of free spins is played out at the determined multiplier and can be repeatedly re-triggered.
Some paylines display the Flying Iron Man symbol which pays out fixed jackpots like the Laser Iron Man symbol. While five like symbols offer a jackpot of 5000 coins, five mixed symbols offer a jackpot of 1000 coins. In fact, two symbols which appear from left to right also offer payouts.
It is only if the Iron Man symbols appear stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4, that they are converted to expanding wilds. The symbol however does not act as wild symbols in other conditions.
Advantages and disadvantages
Unlike other slots games, this Iron Man game from Playtech offers jackpot payouts even with mixed symbols. For added entertainment and thrill, the game offers a Missile Attack Bonus round. The amazing Iron Man graphics poses a third advantage of this game.
The main disadvantage of this game is the absence of any wild symbols in normal circumstances, and another, the absence of progressive jackpots.
