Unfortunately Playtech no longer have the licence to allow play of Marvel slots, therefore you won’t be able to play this game at any casino. Don’t worry though there’s always the Playtech DC slots to play like Superman the Movie.
Based on the Marvel films, rather than the comics, this X-Men mobile slot has all the familiar characters and unlimited free spins.
Euh… yeah… so we didn’t mean to mislead you, but Playtech made us.
It’s not quite as exciting as it sounds, but that doesn’t mean it’s not fun to play – though bear in mind there is a 25 payline version of this game, but as an online slot only.
In order to understand how this mobile slot works, you should have a basic knowledge that within the X-Men universe there are two camps; the good mutants lead by professors X and the more evil mutants lead by Magneto.
For that reasons you have blue (good) and red (bad) character symbols, and their respective mutant is worth the same amount. So Professor Xavier is worth the same as Magneto for example.
Because during the free spins, you completely remove 5 of the 10 possible symbols, leading to frequent wins and plenty 5 of a kind scores.
The reason Playtech claim these are unlimited is because you start with the hero symbols, and these spins continue until you get Magneto on reel 3. Then you switch to the Villain symbols, but you only get 8 free spins.
Find Prof. X on center reel and you go back to the unlimited heroes free spins, and so on, until you use up all Villain spins.
Basically, you are guaranteed 8 free spins, but usually end up playing about 15 to 20. The most we counted was somewhere around 30.
The problem isn’t the free spins. That bonus game in this X-Men video slot is incredibly good fun.
But once the excitement has passed, you are left with 50 paylines of not particularly hard hitting symbols, a progressive jackpot that is hard to catch, and an instant win feature that gives you only 5x your bet.
As fans of the Marvel universe, we know these Playtech slots can be absolutely superb. As it is, the X-Men 50 lines video slot is just about entertaining enough too amuse for a short while before moving on to something with a little more bite, like Panther Moon for example.
Small note: Is it just us or has Playtech made Storm white? Hey?

The Unlimited Free Spins: 3 or more scatters (The X-Men slot logo) trigger the free spins.
You start in 'heroes mode', where the free spins are unlimited and will continue endlessly. Every once in a while the evil Magneto will show up in reel 3 and as well as acting as a wild, will turn the free games into 'Villains mode'.
In Villains mode you only have 8 free spins. Run out of those and the bonus feature ends.
The goods news is that you can turn back to Heroes mode if you find professor X on reel 3, who also acts as an additional wild.
A middle of the road Playtech game, the X-Men 50 line mobile slot provides you with one hell of an exciting free spin bonus feature where you chances of getting big wins are literally doubled.
The base game leaves you a little deflated if you're unlucky to stay there for too long, but then that's why you switch to jackpot slots like The Fortune Five when you want your luck to chance.
