The developers from Playtech have never been known for their innovations and creativity, but the good news is that they have shown quite a few glimpses of those abilities in their most recent release, which is called Iron Man 3. As the name of the video slot suggests, Iron Man 3 is yet another installment in the popular Marvel series – and its release does indeed coincide nicely with the release of the new Iron Man movie. Thankfully, it is a decent step up from the games Playtech have released recently – and it is bound to catch your attention with its free-flowing gameplay and a decent variety of gameplay features.
Theme and Graphics
Playtech have always been up to the par in terms of the visuals and Iron Man 3 is indeed no different in that regard, as the main character of the saga makes a reappearance in three different forms along with the standard set of symbols. Throw the adrenaline-filled sound effects and all the various animations into the mix and it is clear that you are going to be in for a real treat if you are one of those players that like to enjoy games with a tremendous atmosphere.
There are two unusual gameplay features apart from the usual wild and scatter symbols. First of all, there is the All Systems Go Re-Spin feature that is triggered whenever you get all three different Iron Man figures on the first, third, and fifth reels in the right order. Whenever that happens, you are going to get one free re-spin with plenty of bonuses that ensure a decent-sized payout thrown in.
Secondly, there are three special free games modes that are triggered whenever you get three or more scatter symbols anywhere. For example, the War Machine mode will trigger eight free spins with three random wild symbols distributed onto the reels during every single one of them. To top things off, one of the three Iron Man symbols can also add more free spins to the total tally, giving you a chance to win big while just sitting back and enjoying the proceedings.
As is the case with all games from the Marvel series, the Iron Man 3 video slot is connected to the multi-level progressive jackpot, giving you a chance to win one of the four different jackpots just by enjoying Iron Man 3. Higher bets bring higher chances – but you can get lucky even when playing for a minuscule stake!
All in all, Iron Man 3 is a game that you will enjoy even if you don’t really have much of an idea about what the entire saga is about – and that is undoubtedly a good thing if you consider how one-sided many of the games in the Marvel series are. The theme might be a little boring if you’ve already spent some time enjoying the previous installment of the series, but the interesting gameplay features and chances to win some very nice jackpots should keep you entertained nonetheless. So go ahead and give Iron Man 3 a few spins or at least see what it’s all about – it will be more than worth it!
