Playtech’s The Avengers is a slot that’s built in collaboration with Marvel and under an official license from them. The game has 5 reels and 20 paylines, while the theme is the team of superheroes from Marvel that are united in a team with the name Avengers. You’re going to get a nice presentation of these heroes in the intro movie, after which you get to see them much better in the game, as symbols. The game has as its biggest features wilds, scatters, plus free spins and multipliers in certain cases.
Graphics & Theme
The game’s theme being all about the various heroes from the comics of Marvel, you will find them all on the reels and they appear just like in the movies, with pictures of the actors that played them. It’s not a game that is built based on the comics, so you will enjoy it especially if you loved the movies more. Characters like Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, The Hulk, these are found inside and they look great as symbols. The overall quality of the game is actually very good, with a modern abstract blue picture behind the reels and with the same focus on blue in many of the other elements from the design. Playing cards make up for the difference in the line-up of symbols.
The S.H.I.E.L.D. logo will act as a wild symbol here, meaning that you get it as your sidekick in the fight to form new paying combinations. The only symbol that a wild can’t substitute for is a scatter, the same in this game as in many others. There are significant payouts offered in the game when you have regular combinations formed solely out of wilds, the top payouts going up to 10,000 coins.
The second symbol we’re going to pay a lot more attention to is a scatter, the Avengers logo. You need a minimum of three symbols of this type to show up, the exact location doesn’t matter. If you do get them, you are rewarded with payouts of up to 100x the value of your total wager, plus you gain access to the Wall of Heroes bonus game.
During Wall of Heroes, the player is presented with 20 game logos, each one hiding a different hero. Once the player manages to get three identical heroes to appear from under the logos, he gets a prize. The prize is different with each hero, so you get:
• 9 free games with random multipliers from Captain America
• 9 free games with increasing multipliers and extra wilds from Iron Man
• 9 free games with up to 5 extra wilds from Thor
• 9 free games with 3rd reel stacked wild from The Hulk
The game certainly manages to offer its players a lot, as it contains all the usual features and graphics that Marvel has gotten us used to. It’s a game that is a lot of fun, so I recommend you try it out.
