From geeks to slot geeks, Spiderman has always held a special place in our hearts growing up. So you know this mobile slot review won’t be unbiased, but we will do our best.
Spider-man and the Attack of the Green Goblin mobile slot by Playtech looks exactly how you would hope and expect a slot based on Marvel’s stickiest superhero to look like. Mary Jane Watson, New York’s skyline and the Daily Bugle are all your companions on the five reels next to the high card symbols.
Your best friend though, is Spiderman on the right of the reels who will give you random wilds and instant cash through out the base game. The wilds are particularly effective to see you through till you hit one of the many bonus features.
Look, if we repeated all the features here 1. you wouldn’t be able to discovered them for yourself and 2. you wouldn’t read our bonus features section below the review. Needless to say, they are plentiful, with three free spin features and two click me features.
These are all great fun; some more than others of course. The big problem with this Marvel Spiderman slot machine is that you can’t pick which of the features you get. And considering you have to wait a good 100 to 150 spins to get a special feature it’s a real shame that once you’re there you’re not guaranteed a feature you like or one that will get you big wins.
Generally the free spin features are the best, especially the Radioactive wild free spins. Though we had the most fun during the Spiderman collection bonus which felt more like a mini mobile game that we forgot we were playing a slot.
As with all other Marvel mobile slots, Spiderman and the Attack of the Green Goblin is part of the Marvel progressive jackpot pool. However, that’s as much as these slots have in common. As much as we love your friendly neighbourhood spidey, in a fight with The Fantastic Four or The Incredible Hulk… Sorry spidey but… you’d lose. And not just in the comic books, but in the slot world too.
Not to say we didn’t have great fun playing, but generally a ‘big win’ in the base game is about 10x your bet and in the free spins about 30x your bet. It’s not very hard hitting. We do know of some who have managed to get as much as 150x their bet during the right bonus feature, but that’s certainly the exception to the rule.
But it is of lower variance than the other Marvel Playtech slots, so what do you expect? Playtech wasn’t about to release the same game again and again. So Spiderman loses big hits for big entertainment. If only we could have had the choice of the bonus feature, this slot game would have been a solid 4 stars.

Wild and Spiderman Wild Feature: The symbol with 'wild' across it is the wild symbol... crazily enough. It replaces all other symbol except the bonus symbol. It doesn't show up that often on the 5 reels, but thank-fully the spiderman to the right of your screen will randomly jump from his perch and fly across the screen, granting you at least 2 to 3 wild symbols. It's saved our bank roll a few times.
Spidey Snapshot Feature: as with the wild feature, this one also uses the Spiderman on the right and is triggered randomly. Except in this bonus feature he comes down from above and a camera will take a snapshot of our webbed hero, giving you an instant prize. Usually no more than about 5x your bet if you are lucky.
Spider-Man Collection Bonus: You'll need to get the bonus symbol on reels 1, 2 and 5 where you'll be taken to a second screen. Here, 5 comic books are presented on a shelf and you have to tap to stop the spinning. Whichever comic book you land on, that is the bonus feature you've won. These are:
1. Ultimate Fight Feature:
It's a rooftable battle ground as Spiderman faces the green goblin for a fight to the... cash! Each of the opponent starts with full power bar and you'll have a choice of 5 cobweb symbols to choose from. These will either hit spider-man, hit the goblin or heal spider-man.
Each time our superhero strikes the Green Goblin, a cash prize is won. The end of the round is when one or the other of the combatants lose all their energy bar.
If spidey defeats the goblin, you get even more cash! If the goblin defeats him then only the cash that was collected from the successful hits are awarded.
If luck is on your side you'll walk away with about 30x your bet. It's ok but not our favourite of the click me features.
2. City Chase Feature:
This is our favourite click me feature. Here you'll swing through New York as you chase down the goblin. Each location holds a mini bonus where you can collect cash prizes or two types of spidey sense to help you on the next mini-bonus game. You'll keep swinging until you hit the collect button.
It's by far one of the hardest features to hit. In our time playing this slot, we might have encountered it only 4 or 5 times, but when it does show up it can have some surprising big wins or 50 to 60 times our bet.
3. Hot Zone Free Games:
Here you'll win 20 free spins, with extra wilds. Spiderman will shoot webbing at the reels which remains there for three spins. Any wild symbol caught in the web will remain there and if the Green Goblin show up, he acts as an extra wild with a 2x multiplier.
Quite good fun, but, again, you'll walk away with maybe 30x your bet.
4. Rivaling Free Spins:
These free spins is where we've heard people getting those 150x your bet wins. Not sure where they are getting that, as we only ever seem to walk away with barely 20x, but hey, it's all pot luck right?
Here you'll win 10 free spins with a starting multiplier or x1. If the spidey symbol show up it stops the game counter, giving you endless free spins. If it shows up again, it will increase the multiplier up to x5. If the Green Goblin symbol shows up, it resets the counter and the multiplier.
The reason why people get excited about this bonus round is because they see the 5x multiplier and the word 'limitless free spins' on the reels. But that's false advertising. Reaching 5x multiplier is almost impossible and you only get an extra... 10 maybe?... free spins from the spidey symbol. That goblin shows up every time to ruin the fun.
5. Radioactive Free Spins:
Here you'll get 15 free spins where you get an extra radioactive wild spider show up on reel three. When it does, it not only acts as a wild, but spread to reel 2 and 4 to add one extra random wild on each of the reels. Want to know the consequence of this? We've hit five of a kind a few times on this feature.
Again, don't expect the world, but 50x to 70x your bet is possible from this feature, though we have walked away with only 10x in the past.
Marvel Progressive Jackpot: All Marvel slots are linked to mystery progressive jackpots. Any of these four can be triggered randomly at any time. Though any spin at any time can trigger the jackpots, generally, the higher you bet the more likely you are of hitting the jackpot prize.
We've never hit this mini game, so we can't say much about it other than it's a 4x5 grid with 20 squares, each hiding different jackpot symbols. If you match 3 symbols you win that jackpot.
The amounts start from a measly few hundred to a far more impressive hundreds of thousands.
So it's just a shame that those bonus features, which are half the fun, are not as easy to catch as you'd think from a lower volatility slot. You do have to budget carefully to get to them and once you're there, you're not guaranteed a big win.
Still, it's fun and as Marvel games go, Spider-Man mobile slot is a fun addition to fans of the series.Play Now at BetFred »
