Iron Man is another one of the superb Playtech Marvel Superhero slot machines. This game is clearly based on the Robert Downey Jnr film, and although you don’t actually get stills from this movie, the reel art and feel of the game is clearly based on the Hollywood production.
As with all the Marvel Superhero slot machines, Iron Man is one good looking game that’s got loads of gamble in it twenty five paylines that are spread over the standard casino reel set up. The graphics have been created with a certain technological flair, set in a red grid that makes you feel like you could almost be in a Tony Stark laboratory. These are backed by some superb animations that make the whole game come to life with every winning spin.
The sound on offer from Iron Man is in line with the rest of the Playtech marvel slot machines, but on the whole it doesn’t really match up with the rest of the game. We’ve said it a few times before so we don’t want to go on about. What you do get however is some good FX in the feature game, although the win noises sound a little too like those you’d find on fruit machine to really fit in with the whole cool, tech savvy feel to the base game.
One thing you’ll notice about the Iron Man base game is that there’s no single wilds on the reels. You need to stop in a stack of similar Iron Man symbols on any individual reel to turn that reel wild. Single and double Iron Man symbols just act as normal pay-out symbols, although you can mix and match across the two types. There is one type of bonus scatter in the form of the Iron Man logo that’s used to take you into the slot machine’s bonus game.
Stop in three of the Iron Man logo scatters anywhere on the screen to activated the missile attack bonus. Here you’ll go through to a second screen bonus where you get to play as Iron Man. This sees you chasing a bunch of missiles that have just been fired from a fighter jet. Shoot down the missiles to win prizes. These award you with cash, free spins and multipliers to take into the free spin round.
Once you’ve finished shooting down the missiles in the first part of the bonus game, you get to collect your cash rewards, then it’s on to the second set of reels where you’ll take your free spins with any multiplier you received applied to any prizes you win here. That’s not all either – there’s a chance to re-trigger the bonus by hitting three more of the Iron Man scatter symbols, giving you an additional ten free spins.
You’ll also get a bit of extra help on the reels, as the two different types of Iron Man symbol become expanding wilds if you hit in a stack of either symbol on any individual reel. Iron Man is part of the Playtech Marvel superhero range of slot machines which means it’s linked into a wide area progressive slot network that offers players of these games four ever growing jackpots.
The feature that gives you a chance to win one of these super prizes can be activated at any time, following any normal spin. This takes you to a second screen game where you’ll get to pick squares out on a grid. Pick three similar symbols and you’ll be given the corresponding prize.
Slot Professor Says
To me, Iron Man is a bit of an average game when compared to the other slots in the Playtech Marvel series. In my opinion The Incredible Hulk is a better slot that offers you more winning potential and fun bonus game action. Perhaps the development team behind this range of slots hit a bit of creative wall when they got round to putting Iron Man together.
What do I like about this game? Well for one thing the stacked Iron Man symbols turning into wilds is an innovative feature that does give players something a little different from the average slot machine. The bonus game, especially the second screen part where you get to shoot down missiles, is really exciting. Other that this you've got quite a standard slot machine.
As with all the Playtech Marvel slots, I do love the randomly awarded jackpots. The fact that they happen when you kind of least expect it is a real bonus. It can completely take you by surprise. The fact that you're playing for four progressive prizes – one of which is quite small, means that this bonus is triggered quite frequently. Some players may argue that this disrupts from the normal reel flow, especially when you only receive a small prize, however I find it to be full of excitement every time it hits.
