We live in the age of superheroes. Not quite literally (that we know of, at least!), but we sure get our monthly kick of superhero magic at the movies. Here’s an idea for all the fans: how about mixing the two things you dig the most, superheroes and online slots? As there are myriads of games fitting the description, we’ve prepared top 5 superhero slots you’re bound to enjoy for various reasons. Plus, we didn’t pick between Marvel and DC—we’ve decided to give you the best of both worlds and more!
The Dark Knight Rises Slot by Microgaming
The better part of the 2000’s was marked by one shiny DC movie trilogy in particular: Christopher Nolan’s vastly popular Dark Knight series. No wonder its slot variants are just as widely adored and one casino game in particular: Microgaming’s intricate 243-ways-to-win video slot, The Dark Knight Rises slot, with its Split Wilds, Free Spin Accumulator and several exciting bonus games.
For example, there’s a special Fight Mode feature where Batman and Bane fight each other to award you Free Spins and multipliers. Then in the Free Spin round you get to pick between the hero and the villain. If you go with Bane, any win will trigger the Rolling Reels feature where the winning symbols explode and vanish, making way for new symbols to drop down. With Batman you can enjoy the Extra Wild Blast feature with Heat Seeking Wilds. All in all, the slot brings numerous opportunities to win!
Superman: Last Son of Krypton Slot by Amaya
Superman may be the last son of Krypton, but he’s also the first guy to call when there’s trouble in Metropolis. Naturally, we had to pick an online slot featuring one of the most beloved comic book characters in the whole wide world. The game in question, Superman: Last Son of Krypton slot, is a must for several reasons, including the game’s variety of wilds—from Morphing Wilds, over Lois Lane Wild Hearts to the Lex Luthor Frozen Wilds.
What are the Morphing Wilds about? Basically, just like Clark Kent turns into Superman when need be, the wilds morph from Clark to Supes, thus increasing your chances of winning big. In the two other games featuring Kent’s sweetheart and his main antagonist and criminal mastermind, you’ll be faced with pick screens where you’ll randomly choose a number of Free Spins, multipliers and wilds. Also, the features can be retriggered, which is always a plus!
Fantastic Four Slot by Playtech
The Marvel/Playtech dream team has given us plenty of progressive slots to choose from, most of which we’ve already presented to you in our fabulously detailed Marvel Slots Infographic. This time we’ve decided to choose just one superhero slot—the extremely popular Fantastic Four slot, part of the prolific Marvel progressive jackpot universe.
Each of the members of the Fantastic Four team has their respective feature: Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman, Human Torch and the Thing. In turn, each feature has their own special twist, be it an Expanding Wild, a constantly increasing multiplier or ever-present symbols which augment your chances of hitting the big bucks. Plus, there is always the possibility of snagging the multi-level progressive jackpot that all the Marvel slots come with, so... have fun joining the powerful superhero team and may they help you snag the grand jackpot!
Hellboy Slot by Microgaming
Now for something slightly different—Microgaming’s Hellboy slot. Most of you probably know about this red-skinned horned guy, but here’s a quick recap for those who haven’t read the Dark Horse comics before. Namely, Hellboy is a well-meaning demon who was summoned from Hell to our planet and has been working as a paranormal investigator for the entirety of his adult life. The eponymous 20-payline video slot is just as fun as the comic book and movie and here’s why.
Take the Underworld bonus game for example—did you know you can actually snatch up to 33,600 coins in it? As you travel through underworld tunnels, you’ll be winning random bonus amounts or all the wins in the level. Another great feature is the randomly triggered Super Mode which awards you 10 Free Spins and ups your chances of winning with 3 sticky wilds. And if you’re one lucky son of a gun, you might be taking the game’s 10,000-coin jackpot home!
Wonder Woman Slot by Cryptologic
The last but in no way the least—Cryptologic’s Wonder Woman slot. Diana Prince is an inspiration to thousands of little girls and women all over the world and the slot isn’t lacking in special features, either. Especially if you dig Free Spins.
Not only do you get to trigger Free Games while spinning the reels of the Wonder Woman slot, but also during the Free Spin round the Wonder Wilds remain in place for up to 5 spins, which significantly boosts your chances of winning. Another special feature is the Ares Showdown game wherein Ares sends a zombie horde on Wonder Woman and, if she hits Ares 3 times, he’ll be defeated and pay up to 100 times the initial bet. Sounds exciting? Choose an online casino, fire up the slot and good luck beating Ares down!
