The first Iron Man slot was a big success, and now Playtech have released Iron Man 2! When we sat down to review this slot, the first thing we noticed was the unusual ‘stacked symbols’. These are giant symbols that takes up 2 spaces on a particular reel, making it more likely that you’ll get a winning combination if there is a matching symbol on the other reels.
Apart from that, Iron Man 2 is pretty straightforward. You get 5 reels and 25 paylines, and you can bet from a penny per line, all the way up to a tenner. The slot doesn’t have a bonus game, but does have both a free spins feature and the 4 Marvel progressive jackpots that will be familiar from other Marvel slots such as X-Men or The Fantastic Four.
The symbols in the game are based on the characters from the film, including: Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke) as well as various Iron Man suits of armour as worn by the different characters. The Iron Man 2 logo acts as a scatter symbol, and also is the trigger for the free games feature, whilst the highest paying symbol of the game – the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo (otherwise known as the one with the eagle on it :p ) acts as a wild.
As for the gameplay (at least whilst playing it for the review), it felt like there were long periods when it wasn’t hitting very much very often, but then every now and again, a couple of stacked symbols turn up with some wilds thrown in you can activate a huge number of paylines.
The free games feature is pretty cool too. There’s an extra wild at the centre of the screen, and every two spins, the multiplier gets increased by 1. I was lucky enough to get 4 Scarlett Johanssons (considering that most men would give their right arm for just 1!) when on a x3 multiplier, giving me a chunky 900 coins! Nice J
All in all, nicely done – another in a line of recent big name releases from Playtech, and although it’s not a revolutionary slot, it doesn’t feel like Playtech are just trotting out bog standard games where they’ve just replaced the symbols with whatever characters that are in that particular film. Recommend you have a go on this one.
