X-Men – Video Slot Review
X-Men is a 5-reel 25-line branded video slot game with extra features: the Wild symbol, the Extra Wild symbols, the Scatter symbol, the X-Feature, the Free Games and the Marvel Multi-Level Mystery Progressive Jackpot.
X-Men is inspired by the legendary superhero team in the Marvel Comics Universe. This slot game uses the X-Men characters as reel symbols. In the game, the Heroes are represented by Professor X, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Storm and Cyclops. The eternal opposition between the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants is also present in the game, as Magneto, Lady Deathstrike, Mystique, Sabretooth and Juggernaut are also present on the reels.
As a new feature, the X-Men Free Games bonus round switches between two modes, thus providing greater excitement and bigger winning possibilities for the player.
If the total Free Games win amount exceeds 50 x the total bet, the Celebration feature is displayed to the player.
If 5 Heroes symbols form an X in the spin results on the reels 2, 3 and 4, an extra win is given to the player in the amount of 5 x the total bet.
An intro screen is displayed each time the player enters the game. In the intro, the X-Men Heroes and the Villains from the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants invite the players to witness the eternal opposition between the good and the bad.
After the Free Games bonus round, a screen appears summarizing the winnings.
X-Men: Wild Bonus
The Wild symbol can stand for any other symbol, except Scatter, to make the best possible winning combination. In X-Men, there is also a separate payout for two or more Wild symbols on an active payline. The Wild bonus is paid out instead of the regular symbol win if the win amount from Wilds is larger than the win from the regular symbols.
X-Men: Scatter Bonus
The Scatter bonus is awarded to the player when two or more Scatter symbols (X-Men logos) appear anywhere on the reels. The payout for the Scatter symbols is multiplied by the total bet. The X-Men Scatter bonus has a fixed-payout cash prize: the more Scatters, the larger the payout multiplier.
X-Men: The X-Feature
The X-Feature occurs during regular reelspin. The X-Feature means that five Hero symbols make up an X on the reels 2, 3 and 4 among the spin results. The Hero symbols that form the X must not be identical. If this feature occurs, the player gets an extra win – 5 x the total bet – in addition to the regular line and Scatter wins.
X-Men: Free Games
The Free Games are triggered when three or more Scatter symbols (X-Men logos) appear anywhere on the reels among the spin results and the player is always awarded 8 Free Games. The Free Games are played at the total bet of the spin that triggered the feature. The X-Men Free Games round is played in two modes – the Heroes mode and the Villains mode. The round always begins in the Heroes mode.
Free Games: Heroes Mode
In the Heroes mode, the reels spin upwards, not downwards as usual. During the Heroes mode, the Free Games countdown is paused as the reels spin. This means that the player has the same number of Free Spins until the Villains mode is triggered.
In the Heroes mode, the symbols on the reels are the Heroes, the Wild symbol, and the Magneto symbol. The Magneto symbol acts as Extra Wild and when it appears anywhere on reel 3, the gameplay is switched from the Heroes mode to the Villains mode.
Free Games: Villains Mode
In the Villains mode, the reels spin downwards as usual, and the number of remaining spins decreases by one per each spin that is made in the Villains mode.
In the Villains mode, the symbols on the reels are the Villains, the Wild symbol, and the Professor X symbol. The Professor X symbol acts as Extra Wild and when it appears anywhere on reel 3, the gameplay is switched from the Villains mode to the Heroes mode.
