Joining Playtech stable of Marvel Jackpot games is Daredevil, a 20-paylines 5-reels game that does not feature anything innovative in its game play, except for a targeter that you can place at any reel position as you like, and a random wild feature during the free spins play. The targeter is use to catch the bald-headed villain (the one with a target mark on his forehead), and every time this villain lands on the spot that you have placed your targeter, you win 3x your total bet. You can leave the targeter in the same position for every spin, or you can move it around after each spin to try and catch the villain in the next spot that he might land. Firstly, trying to catch the villain in any spot on the reels is not an easy task. It's one out of 15 possible spots, but when you do get it right, the reward is only 3x the total bet, which isn't a lot at all. A 10x total bet reward would have been a better option, but personally, I do not like this feature at all, even if it pays a little bit more in its cash prize. Reason? The targeter actually obstructs the view of the spot it is occupying, acting more of a nuisance than anything else! Perhaps a better option would have been to highlight the square it is occupying instead, and not obstructing the symbol it is overlapping. Better still? Do without it altogether and replace with something better!
As for its paytable, the Daredevil acts as the wild symbol, substituting all other symbols, except for the scatter symbol, for wins. 5 wilds on any payline pay 5000x the line bet, which is only half the usual payout amount. Why? I honestly don't know and I can't figure it out either, considering that the wild symbol does not pay double for any win it creates, as it should do. The double D symbol, 'DD', is the scatter symbol, paying a low 100x the total bet for 5-of-a-kind. Again, I cannot figure out why such a low payout has been allocated. As always, getting 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels would trigger off a free spin feature game, awarding 15 free spins WITHOUT any win multiplier! Oh gees! Instead, at every spin, a random number of wilds would be introduced onto the reels, anything from 0 wild to a maximum of 5 wilds, creating wins wherever possible. Sadly enough, the random wilds do not appear at every spin, does not pay double for any win, and all wins derived from these random wilds are paid at face values! Nothing big, nothing great...but dull!
Obviously, something when wrong somewhere with the game developers, for missing out so many key important aspects for good payouts as well as interesting game play for this Daredevil slot game! What one can expect to get from players, reaction-wise, would be "is that all?"...well, from me at least. If satisfaction of game play and excitement of big wins are to come from the Marvel Jackpot wins only, so sorry Daredevil, it just doesn't work! To me, personally, where Marvel Jackpot games are concerned, Daredevil is a flop, but is still a reasonable game to play to try and get that Marvel Jackpot prize instead!
