What is this mobile slot about?

Based on the incredibly successful 2012 film, the Avengers mobile slot by Playtech hits almost all the right buttons.

We really, really wanted to give this Playtech game at least 4 stars. But in the course of playing the Avengers slot on mobile for close to two hours, we got kicked out of the game two times (each time at a crucial… nooooo…! moment) and the sounds loaded sometimes. Mostly it just took it’s time to load, other times we gave up and played in silence. Fun.

So, before you put your money in… best to free play The Avengers slot game and test it out on your device. Also, make sure you are connected to WiFi as it’s quite graphic heavy.

Everything you want to read in a mobile phone slot review right?

But don’t despair, it lost a star due to it’s quirkiness on different devices, which means that all the rest of the stars are based on how much fun this Marvel game is to play. And that’s a lot of stars given based on fun.

Also, bear in mind that as with all the Marvel games, The Avengers jackpot slot contains four different top progressive prizes to be won, always a nice bonus to give a game a little bit of your time.

Takes a while to love

The Avengers video slot surprised us. When we first started playing, we figured this game was pretty low variance. We kept getting little wins here and there, our bank balance wasn’t drastically decreasing… ok, this is just Marvel slot entertainment like Iron Man 3. Fine. we can deal with that.

Then we hit the free spins round where we won 1822x our bet. That’s our overall bet. Not line bet, our whole spin bet. That’s when we realised that this little beauty had probably far more in common with the great and fun The Incredible Hulk slot.

We were reeling a little from this experience and kept playing to try and figure this game out. Something you need to be willing to do to truly appreciate this mobile slot, so budget for a good 200 spins.

All about the bonus game free spins

Turns out, it’s a cleverly hidden big hit slot, which likes giving you little wins during the base game as you wait for the free spin games. As once we started to pay attention, we realised there wasn’t much to win outside of the free spins. Even a five of a kind would mostly just get you about 10x to 20x your bet.

But then the free spin round arrives and… you can get anything from 6x your bet (mostly from lame Captain American) to the aforementioned 1000x+ your bet during Thor. However, after a few rounds, the Hulk feature also captured our hearts as it gave us a nice 50x our bet on most of the occasions, whilst Thor let us down at times. Iron Man varies between 10x to 30x your bet, sometimes going a little higher.

Of course, you can’t pick which one you get, it’s all down to blind luck, taking a little bit of the thrill away when you have to wait 200 spins to get… Captain America? *sob*.

Theoretically you can continue triggering superhero spins round after round, but we found that after your first 9 spins, getting another one is almost impossible.

High octane fun followed by long periods of nothing

And because 90% of the fun is in the free spins, it can be frustrating when you feel you are spinning away and not getting them. We definitely recommend players to watch their budget on this one, because though it feels like it’s giving back enough here and there, it’s slowly chipping away at you until you can you get the film equivalent of destroying the whole of New York city climax of free spins.

At that point you might save the world and you bank balance, with a great winning combo, or sacrifice yourself for the greater slot good. One way or another, it’s fun to be involved.

In-game bonus features

Wilds: The Shield symbol is the wild, substituting for all but the scatter.

Avengers Assemble: Get Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk and Nick Fury in any order on an active payline and you'll get 10x your overall bet.

Because apparently Black Widow and Hawk-eye are just eye candy and don't count when 'Avengers Assemble'.

Scatters and Free Spins: Get three Avengers slot logos anywhere on the reels and you'll trigger the 'wall of heroes bonus'.

Here you'll get 10 icons to pick from, each hiding one of the four main Avengers and each with a special feature. We have a special place in our heart with Thor, but it's also the time this game crashed on us (twice) so we have mixed feeling about it.

Once you've played your free spins you'll return to this screen and get to pick again. Supposedly because you should be able to trigger another round. However 9 chances out of 20, you'll simply get the Loki symbol and end the free spin round.

Captain America Free Spins: You get 9 free spins where Captain America will randomly show up giving you a multiplier of anything from 2x to 5x.

Meh. More often than not, gives you too little to shout about.

Iron Man Free Spins: Here you get a reactor symbol in the middle of reel three during all 9 of the free games, acting as an extra wild and helping create decent wins on most of the spins. More interestingly, you begin the free games round with a 1x multiplier and after every 3 spins, the multiplier increases by 1x.

Thor Free Spins: During these 9 free rounds you'll have Thor show up on the screen with his hammer Mjölnir and gives you anything from 0 to 5 wilds on screen. And by five, we mean one in each of the columns, which is always pleasant.

The Hulk Free Spins: Simple but effective, the Hulk cover the whole of reel 3 as an expanded wild. And that's it. Doesn't have to be complicated to give you big wins.

The Marvel Jackpot: The mythical Marvel jackpot mini-game can be triggered at any point, any time, anywhere. The reason we say mythical is that we've never seen it, but then we've never triggered the jackpot in Mega Moolah, but all the big winner stories are there to prove it exists.

So all we can tell you is what's written in the game instruction; there's four of them and it's a click to reveal three of the same symbols game. Very much like the free spin game actually - a grid of 20 with four different types symbols, each representing one of the four jackpots.


Closing thoughts

Bringing together all the famous heroes from the Marvel movies, The Avengers mobile slot is a solid addition to this series of Playtech Games, bringing a wonderful free spin feature that can smash itself into your heart very easily.

However, don't get tricked by its small wins during the base game, this game hides some surprising wins and you'll need the budget and patience to hit them.
