The Spider-Man slot is a 5-reel, 25 pay line online slot game from Playtech. The game's based on the world famous web-slinging hero of the same name, who was created by Stan Lee in 1962, and has been covering criminals in sticky stuff ever since. Just in case you've been living under a rock for the past half-century, Spider-Man is the crime fighting alter-ego of Peter Parker. 'Spidey' was created when Parker was bitten by a radio-active spider, which is something sure to put a downer on your day. Spider-Man has been doing whatever a spider can in comics, TV shows and films ever since, being portrayed in celluloid by Tobey Maguire and most recently, Andrew Garfield.
The Spider-Man slot is more about spinning reels than spinning webs. You can choose your line bet from 0.01 to 5.00, and how many lines you want in play from 1 to 25. Hit 'Spin' to play, or if the reels aren't spinning fast enough for you, 'Turbo'. To win a cash amount, it's just a case of landing at least three identical symbols in sequence on an active pay line. The symbols are card values nine to ace, or characters and items associated with Spider-Man.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts range from x10 your line bet for three nines or tens, up to the jackpot of a web-shaking x10,000 for five 'Wild' symbols. The wild symbol also substitutes for any other symbol aside from the Spidey 'Bonus' symbol.
There are a number of bonus games, all activated by landing the bonus symbol on the two outer and the middle reel. Once triggered, you get to pick one of five comic books, each of which contains a bonus feature, such as free spins. There are also a couple of mini-games you can trigger, including one where you fight the dreaded Green Goblin.
There's also the Spider-Man Wild feature where Spidey randomly shoots cobwebs at some of the symbols, turning them into wilds, and 'Spidey Snapshot' where the Daily Bugle pays you for a photo of Spider-Man. Both these features occur randomly.
Spider-Man is a Marvel-themed slot, which means the Marvel progressive jackpots game is available. Four sizeable jackpots can be won: Power, Extra Power, Super Power, and Ultimate Power. You get to choose from a 4 x 5 grid, and when you reveal three identical mystery symbols, you're awarded that symbol's jackpot. If you enter the game, you're guaranteed one of the jackpots.
Spider-Man is a excellently executed slot with lots and lots of variety that gives players the chance of getting more from the games than just spinning the reels. Do we think you'd enjoy the Spider-Man online slot? Our spidey senses are telling me … yes!
