Iron Man Slot
The Iron Man online slot is a 5-reel, 25 pay line slot game from Playtech. This slot marks another intrusion into the already well-plundered Marvel universe. Iron Man is a character created by the comic genius Stan Lee, and first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1963. The power-armour-suited super hero is better known these days from the series of films released by Paramount Pictures and starring Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man.
You kick off the slot by selecting your coin size from 0.01 to 100, then the number of spins you want, up to a maximum of 99. The next step is to choose your bet per line from x1 to x10, and finally the number of lines you want in play. Once you've done all that you can hit the 'spin' button. All the symbols are either playing card values from nine to ace, or items from the first movie. To win a cash prize, you need to land at least three identical symbols in sequence on an active pay line from the left hand reel.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest payout is your bet-per-line for two Iron Man logo symbols anywhere on the reels. The jackpot (aside from the progressive jackpot), is x5,000 for five symbols that feature Iron Man in action.
There are no wild symbols in the normal game, unless you manage to stack three 'Iron Man in action' symbols on the central three reels. If you achieve this, these symbols all become 'Expanding Wilds', and you trigger any wins as appropriate.
The logo symbol acts as the 'scatter' symbol, and landing two or more triggers a win, and landing three or more triggers the Missile Attack Bonus game. Here you shoot down missiles, with your reward being cash prizes, free games and multipliers for doing so. If, during the free games, you land another three scatters you win another ten free games.
Finally, as this is a Marvel slot, you have chance of randomly landing the opportunity to win one of the four Marvel progressive jackpots – Power, Extra Power, Super Power, and Ultimate Power. You're shown a grid of twenty squares, which you click on until you uncover three identical mystery symbols. You are then awarded the jackpot associated with that symbol.
The Iron Man slot was a classic in its time from Playtech, but is now beginning to show signs of age. It's a good job then that just like the movie, there are a couple of sequels!
