Anyway, this Fate Sisters game plays and pays very closely as to the original Iron Man 3 game, and I'm happy for that. Nothing has been knowingly or observably changed, even the paytables remain identical. The Wild symbol pays 10,000x the line bet for 5 of them, it substitutes for other symbols except for the Scatter symbol, but is a dumb Wild symbol nonetheless. No doubling of wins, no stacking and no expanding. The Scatter symbol pays 100x the total bet for 5 of them, and getting 3 or more triggers The Fates' Portal Free Games, with 3 different games to choose from. The 3 Sisters symbols pay from 500x to 100x, and the rest pay from 90x to 20x, all per line bet for 5 of each kind. A low paytable, despite the good value for the Wild symbol.
In the base game only, getting the 3 Sisters in the right sequence on reels 1, 3 and 5 activates the Sisters' Gift Feature, whereby the Sisters symbols are locked and 1 Respin is awarded. Any new matching Sister symbols appearing during the respin get paid as Scatters. This feature can pay quite big if 4 or 5 of the same Sister symbols appear on the reels. I had a good win from this feature in Iron Man 3, but only mediocre wins from Fate Sisters so far. For the Free Spins game, the 3 choices are: Atropos's Temple, 15 free spins with Dynamic Multipliers of 2x up to 5x, Lachesis's Temple, 10 free spins with Locking Wilds, locked for 3 spins, and Lachesis appearing anywhere on reel 3 awards 3 more free spins, and finally Clotho's Temple, 8 free spins with 3 Wilds, randomly placed onto the reels in each free spin, and Clotho appearing anywhere on reel 3 awards 3 more free spins. All 3 games can pay big, but I tend to like Clotho's Temple game more.
Playing Fate Sisters was just like playing Iron Man 3. The payouts and the Free Spins games remain unchanged, as far as I could detect. The Sisters' Gift Feature paid nothing in one of the games, but all the other games paid something. This happens in Iron Man 3 games as well. Best of all, none of the Free Spins games paid nothing, typical of Playtech's standard, which I like very much, as compared to Microgaming games which could pay nothing on several occasions. On the whole, a very good replacement game, without straying away from the original game.
