Iron Man Slots
Iron Man is part of the popular Marvel Slots range from PlayTech. This was one of the first games produced when PlayTech took over the franchise from Cryptologic back in 2010. It has since been updated with newer versions. This slot is based on a 5-reel, 25 win-line video slot – and has plenty of entertaining features both in-play and as bonus feature games. You will also have the chance of hitting the Marvel slots progressive jackpot, which is shared between these games and between the many casinos which host them.
This Iron Man 2 review gives you all the information you’ll need to get started on one page. The setup of the game and basics like winning symbols and costs are covered first below. After that the special bonus features are described. You can find out how this slot compares to the other games in PlayTech’s Marvel range in my summary at the bottom of the page.
How to Play Iron Man Slots
The symbols you will find are mostly connected to Iron Man and his Alter Ego Tony Stark. Higher value symbols include a missile, a briefcase, Tony Stark, a flying Iron Man and a running Iron Man. Low values are the usual playing card icons 9 – Ace. Wins for the highest symbols pay out at 5000 coins for the flying or running Iron Man (which are also wild), with mixtures of these two on win-lines paying a smaller amount. Most of the other symbols are smaller payouts, with the playing cards particularly small. This is a mid-variance slot for me, the smaller wins are less frequent, which leaves more money to be paid out in bigger chunks to those lucky enough to hit big during a bonus round.
Iron Man has 5 reels with 25 pay lines. The coin denominations are from 1c to $5 and you can wager up to 10 coins per line. This makes the smallest bet 25c with nosebleed stakes possible at some casinos for the real high rollers out there. You can trigger the jackpots with the smallest bets, though the more you wager, the better chance you have of hitting these.
Flying Iron Man or running Iron Man represent the wild in this slot and when they land on reels 2, 3 and 4 they will expand and payouts can reach 5,000 coins. The wild symbols do not substitute for the scatters, though any other symbol can be replaced.
The scatter symbol in this slot is the Iron Man logo. When you land 3 or more scatter symbols you trigger the Missile Attack bonus game. When this game has been triggered you control Iron Man to shoot at incoming missiles to reveal your free spins, multipliers and expanding wilds.
The Iron Man Slot Bonus Features
The main feature game in this slot is the Missile attack bonus game. There are two parts to this feature round. The first is an animated sequence where you shoot at incoming missiles (as Iron Man). This reveals your multiplier, the number of free spins and which expanding wilds you get as the missiles explode.
Once you have completed this part the free spins part begins. During this round if you land 3 or more scatters you will receive an additional 10 spins and number of these extra games are potentially unlimited. If you manage to get the expanding wild in the free spins round it will lock reel 3 into position giving you many possibilities of big wins. This feature game is what makes up for the smaller wins in standard play – you can end up with some huge payouts during the Missile Attack game.
The other feature of this game is the Marvel progressive jackpots. There are 4 of these that can be triggered at any time. If you are lucky enough to hit the biggest, this could be in the high 6-figures or even the 7-figure range.
Iron Man Slot Game Summary
The Iron Man slots are a great reason to check out the Marvel range from PlayTech. These bring the character of Tony Stark / Iron Man to life, and keep you entertained with features both on the reels and as a break-out game. Best of all, the feature can give you the opportunity to win some serious money, especially if you are lucky enough to get 3 of the expanding wild symbols covering the reels.
Iron Man 2 is a great improvement on the original, and the 3rd Iron Man promises even more excitement. These games are linked to the PlayTech Marvel jackpot pool, which is linked between the different casinos hosting these games. If you enjoy the latest video slot games, then Iron Man should certainly be on your shortlist.
