The Avengers Slot Review
The Avengers is a Playtech powered video slot which is part of the Marvel Series Slots – with 5 reels and 20 paylines, you will come across popular Marvel superheroes like Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Nick Fury. As per the film, Nick Fury recruits Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor to stop Loki from destroying planet Earth. You can play The Avengers from just 20p a spin to as much as £500 a spin.
There are 5 bonus features to play – you have The Avengers Assemble On Reels feature which triggers when Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Captain America and Nick Fury appear on a payline consecutively (no particular order). You will be rewarded with 10 times your stake – it’s a small prize but better than nothing.
The main attraction is the Wall of Heroes Bonus feature – you can gain access by obtaining 3 Avengers logo symbols anywhere across the reels. Here you can play a total of 4 free spins modes inspired by the superheroes. Firstly, you will come across a wall where you will see 20 Avenger icons. You will make picks until you unveil 3 matching superheroes.
The Hulk Free Games feature will give you 9 free spins – what makes this appealing is that the middle reel (reel 3) is taken over by the Hulk becoming a wild reel. The Captain America Free Games feature also gives you 9 free spins. Each free spin has a multiplier ranging from 2x to 5 applied to it. The first spin has a 2x multiplier with the second spin giving you a 3x multiplier. The third and fourth free spins have a 4x and 5x multiplier respectively. The process starts again at 2x and goes up to 3x, 4x and 5x. The last spin is on 2x.
The Iron Man Free Games feature also awards you 9 free spins. The multiplier starts at 1x and goes up by 1 after 3 free spins play out. Iron Man will float across the screen and increase it. So this means free spins 1 to 3 have a 1x multiplier, free spins 4 to 6 have a 2x multiplier and free spins 7 to 9 have a 3x multiplier. Finally, the Reactor symbol remains fixed in the middle of reel 3 during the feature which acts like an Extra Wild.
The best of the 4 is the Thor Free Games feature – here you get 9 free spins. You will see Thor throwing lightning bolts with his hammer before every free spins. He will turn up to 5 random symbols in Random Extra Wilds. If you want to win big in The Avengers slot, this is the feature that will give it to you.
The maximum win amount from The Avengers is a whopping 7,000 times your stake which you can get in this feature by getting 5 wilds and 5 Random Extra Wilds during a spin. I’ve played this feature a few times now with my biggest win to date being just over 500 times my stake!
Once you finish a particular free games feature, you will go back to the Wall of Heroes screen to make more picks. This means you can play all the features in 1 sitting multiple times. The Wall of Heroes Bonus feature only ends when you uncover Loki. This will take you to a screen where your win total is revealed.
I’ve managed to play all 4 features a few times in 1 go which is great. I love the possibility of the big wins in the Thor Free Games feature but win amounts from the other 3 have been pretty small. You cannot retrigger more free spins in any of the features which is a shame. The only other thing I would say is that it takes a while for the features to play out. I like fast paced action normally – saying that, the graphics and animations are simply brilliant. Overall, a good slot I will be playing again and again – I’m positive it will become a huge hit with slot lovers.
