Iron Man 3 Slot Review
Iron Man 3 is powered by Playtech and part of the Marvel Series slot games – it has 5 reels and 25 paylines and can be played from 25p a spin to £250 a spin. Based on the 2013 Iron Man 3 movie starring Robert Downey Junior, Iron Man, War Machine and Iron Patriot aim to save the world. The Iron Man 3 film has been a great success and is the 5th highest earning movie of all time!
The base game has 3 scatter symbols to look out for – these are Mark 42, War Machine and Iron Patriot. If Mark 42 appears on reel 1, War Machine appears on reel 3 and Iron Patriot appears on reel 5 at the same time, you will trigger the All Systems Go Re-Spin feature. They will remain on the reels and give you 1 re-spin. Don’t expect to win that much from this feature even though I won over 50 times my stake a few times. Normally wins are between 5 and 10 times your stake.
The bigger wins will come from the Hall of Armor Free Games feature – you can activate it by obtaining 3 (or more) Iron Man logo anywhere across the reels. You are taken to a screen where you will choose from 3 free spins modes. These are based on the characters outlined above and vary in what they offer you – here are the details:
Iron Patriot Free Games feature – you’re rewarded with 15 free spins with a Dynamic Multiplier. The multiplier will range from 2x to 5x. You will notice the Iron Patriot robot on the left hand side which increases the multiplier by 1 if an Iron Patriot symbol appears on reels 1, 2, 4 or 5. If it doesn’t appear in a free spins, the multiplier goes down by 1. The first free spin will play out with a random multiplier ranging from 2x to 5x though. You can earn extra free spins if you get the Iron Patriot symbol on reel 3 though – there is no limit to the amount of extra free spins you can get.
Iron Man Mark 42 Free Games feature – you will get 10 free spins with Freezing Wilds. A wild symbol appearing on the reels with remain frozen for 3 free spins. If a wild lands on the same place, it will reset to 3 free spins. If the Mark 42 wild symbol lands on the middle reel however, you will get an extra 3 free spins. Again, there’s no limit to the amount of extra free spins you can get. This is my favourite feature
War Machine Free Games feature – you will receive 8 free spins with Random Wilds. Before each free spin is played, the War Machine will turn 3 symbols randomly into wilds. If you get more wilds on the reels, this can result in some huge wins. If you get the War Machine symbol on the middle reel, you will receive an extra 3 free spins. As with the other 2 features, the number of free spins you can earn is unlimited.
Iron Man 3 is a decent Marvel slot but not the best by a long way. Graphically brilliant, it takes quite a while to trigger the Hall of Armor Free Games feature. Once in, the rewards don’t just justify the wait (in my opinion). I would pick the Iron Man Mark 42 Free Games feature every time though as this can give you huge wins (albeit not very often).
If you get 5 of a kind of wilds on all paylines, you will win 2,500 times your stake. However, the possibility of this is pretty slim. If you’re looking for a better Marvel game, I recommend Fantastic Four or The Avengers. The latter has 4 free spins modes with the Thor Free Games feature giving you the possibility of up to 7,000 times your stake. I’ve rarely won less than 100 times my stake here!
