There are two available versions of the slot game Iron Man - one by Cryptologic (WagerLogic), the other by Playtech. The name of the game may be the same but the quality of graphics used are not, the Playtech version being the better one. The biggest difference between the two versions of Iron Man is the Marvel Jackpot prize being offered. Whilst both have it, the one by Playtech is usually the more popular and with a much bigger jackpot prize, which could be as high as over $2 million! This is mainly due to the pooling of resources, whereby 20 Marvel Super Heroes games contribute into the Playtech's Marvel Jackpot pool, so the 4 jackpot prizes move very rapidly up or down as the case may be. Players playing any Playtech Marvel game would certainly have not missed seeing the onscreen names of players winning those jackpot prizes, at just minutes interval of each other! Yes, the smallest jackpot (Power) is literally won that quickly, at times, just seconds after being won by another player! Nonetheless, as exciting and intriguing as all these may look, winning a jackpot prize, even the smallest one, is akin to winning a lottery! Only the very lucky ones do get them!
This Iron Man game, the first in the Iron Man series, is based on a Missile Attack plot. It has 25 paylines, has Stacked Wilds that turn into Expanded Wilds, has two different Iron Man symbols as Wilds, paying individually and mixed, as well as scatters that would trigger a Free Games feature. 5-of-a-kind of each same wild symbol pays 5000x the line bet, whilst 5-of-a-kind of mixed combination of the two wild symbols pays 750x the line bet. The wording IRON MAN is the scatter symbol, 5 of which would pay 100x the total bet. This, in my opinion, is very low as compared to other 5-of-a-kind scatter payment, which is usually 250x to 500x the total bet. With such a low paytable, hopefully it would also mean easier in achieving those 5 scatters. Honestly speaking, I do not know, because I have yet to get it! Hehehe. Anyway, get 3 scatters anywhere on the reels and a Free Games feature is awarded, aptly named Missile Attack Bonus game. Here, you are presented with 12 missiles on the screen, each missile carrying a hidden cash prize, a free spins award or a win multiplier, so the award you may get may vary greatly! Getting a free spins number and a win multiplier ends the selection. If you're lucky, you may get cash prizes first before ending it with any free spins and win multiplier combination. Whilst this feature do offer a variety of picking options, I still much prefer a fixed option such as 15 free spins with a 3x win multiplier! Getting 10 free spins with 2x win multiplier is always a big dread to me! Oh, yes, as usual, more 10 free spins can be retriggered infinitely, or so Playtech says! Don't ever you believe it! Hehehe.
If you're wondering where those big payouts can be expected, then this is it...the Expanding Wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4! It can happen at any time, at random, usually just 1 reel of Expanded Wild, occasionally 2 reels of them, and very rarely the 3 reels full-blasted kind. If you do get 3 reels of them, get ready for some really heavy downpour of coins! There can only be 4-of-a-kinds and 5-of-a-kinds appearing on the reels, so the bigger the first reel symbols, the bigger the payouts! Watch out for a matching symbol on that last 5th reel - that would make your 5-of-a-kind win! I have not got this kind of a win as yet playing Iron Man, but I have got it playing other similar games, and ooh-boy, they'll make you jump up from your seat! Hehehe. Iron Man is not the best of the Marvel games but is certainly highly recommended for an entertaining game play with big wins possibilities. Then there is also Iron Man 2 and Iron Man 3 for you to try out. So, go man, go! Hehehe.
