The Incredible Hulk opens with a piece of awesome full motion video that’ll knock you back into your seat. This is a shape of things to come in the base game and bonus rounds, which have been created to look, feel and sound amazing. We get the impression that Playtech are one of those companies that always like to put their heart and soul into all of their titles and this is certainly the case with this Marvel inspired title.
This is one of the Marvel Superheroes range of slots from Playtech. All the slots machines in this range link up to give players four different jackpots. These can be won through the special Marvel Jackpot second screen game. This can be randomly activated at any point during the game. You’ll be taken onto a special grid where you’ll get to pick squares on a grid, revealing symbols. You keep going until you’ve picked three similar symbols and then you win the associated prize.
Visually the Incredible Hulk slot is a feast for the eyes. The reels symbols are made up of hard looking concrete poker icons, radioactive chemicals, warning signs and law enforcement vehicles. These are all set in a green and black grid-like background that gives you the feeling that you could be playing this slot machine in an experimental government laboratory somewhere. Animations are spot on too, with loads of explosions that feature the Hulk jumping around and doing his thing.
Even though the audio relies on the standard Playtech reel noises, which sound a little like a galloping horse, this is accompanied by an eerie, haunting soundtrack. This captures the whole nuclear accident angle to the Hulk’s life. Yes this is a story of a hero, but an unwitting one made through tragedy. The win noises are a little cheesy – yes, this is one area of the slot machine that does not quite live up to expectations, but it’s been better produced than the audio that you’ll hear on many Playtech slots.
The base game uses a standard casino slot set up, featuring 25 pay-lines across the 5 reel, 15 stop space grid. There are two types of bonus scatter, which we’ll come to later and a special Hulk wild symbol. This wild acts in the normal fashion, substituting for wins where-ever it can, but it’s got a whole other level to it too. Stop in the Hulk on the central reel of the game and he’ll expand to fill the whole reel and you’ll get two respins with this symbol in place. This is cunningly known as the Expanding Hulk feature. Stop in three Hulk symbols across the middle reels and you’ll get three completely wild reels and one respin – which is guaranteed to pay you out some crushing prizes
As we mentioned there are two bonus games in the Incredible Hulk slot machine. The first is a free spin round. This is activated with three bonus scatter, which also pay you out a 10 x prize on your stake for hitting them on the reels. Not bad for starters. Then it’s off to the special second set of reels where you’ll be getting ten free spins with all prized trebled. You’ve still got the expanding Hulk in full effect to help you make the big wins and you’ve got a chance to re-trigger this bonus too.
As ever we’ve saved the best till last. There’s a special second screen bonus where you can actually get into your role as the Incredible Hulk. This is the hardest bonus to hit, requiring you to hit Hulk Smash scatters on the first and last reels. This takes you through to a bonus screen where you’ll get to play as the Hulk and throw fire hydrants at police cars to reveal cash prizes. After taking out the cop cars, you then get a choice of helicopters to take out, revealing a multiplier that’s applied to your cash winnings. This is usually quite a lucrative affair.
Slot Professor Says
The Incredible Hulk is another great Marvel slot from Playtech. In my opinion this is one of the best in the range, as it really does pack in loads of bonus features and it's got tons of money in the reels to splash out on punters. I can't really find any faults with it other than to niggle over the audio. I've got to tip my magnifying glass to the development team as this is one tasty game.
What do I really love about the Incredible Hulk slot? Well for me the big playing point has to be the expanding wild feature. If you can stop in three wilds on the middle three reels then the Hulk will fill all three reels and you'll get another spin. This is the same as the top level of IGT's Diamond Queen free spin bonus and its activated straight off the reels – making it so much better than this IGT slot machine. It has the power to pay-out some massive prizes and as it can happen at any time it tends to keep you on the edge of your seat.
So as the slots professor do I have any playing tips for the Incredible Hulk? Well, I'd advise you to stick your money in and let it rip. This is a great game that can cash out at any time and all you need to do is get into one of the bonus games to assure yourself of a bumper pay-day. You'll be hard pushed to find another superhero slot that's this good.
