Fantastic Four online slot review

Another excellent Playtech online slot with five reels, 50 paylines, and the characters of the popular Marvel franchize, the Fantastic Four. This time the characters were not borrowed from the movie, but rather from the comic books, surrounded by the usual ‘poker high cards’ symbols on the reels.

Fantastic Four online slot
The game can be played with various coin values - the version I tried had values between $0.01 and $5 - and it comes with all the features a modern video slot must have - wild and scatter symbols, free spins and multipliers.

The Fantastic Four logo is used as the wild symbol of the game. It substitutes for any other symbol, except for the scatter. Two or more such symbols also come with an extra bonus of 40 to 10,000 coins, so better catch them all (what is this, Pokemon? I should check for a Pokemon-themed online slot…). Did I mention that the spinning reels can be stopped at any time?

The scatter symbol of the game is our little blue planet, the Earth. Three or more of these (also with extra winnings of 5 to 200 coins) trigger the free games feature. This video slot has 12 free games with four fantastic features, for every character of the Fantastic Four: the Mr. Fantastic feature, the Invisible Woman feature, the Human Torch feature and the Thing feature. Each of these are triggered when the corresponding character covers reel number three during free games.

The Mr. Fantastic feature appears when the Mr. Fantastic symbol covers the entire third reel. This awards the player four extra spins, during which the Mr. Fantastic symbol acts as an expanding wild, covering all visible rows.

The Invisible Woman feature is triggered when the corresponding symbol covers reel 3. This feature awards the player with one total bet, plus four extra free spins. During these spins, when the Invisible Woman appears at least once in the visible area, the multiplier applied to winnings increases by one. All winnings are multiplied by the accumulated multiplier at the end of the free games.

The Human Torch feature is triggered as above. In this game wheel 1 is covered by the Human Torch and is held, and the other three members of the team do not appear on the reels. This feature also comes with four extra spins.

The Thing - triggered same as above - comes with three extra free spins, during which the Thing acts as a wild symbol and remains frozen in the place of its appearance for the remaining extra spins.

The Fantastic Four online video slot, as well as all other Marvel slots developed by Playtech, come with a multi-level mystery progressive jackpot - Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power jackpots. The progressive jackpot games are triggered randomly, and offer the player the chance to win one of these bonus amounts that can reach considerable heights. The game itself is a guessing game - the player has to choose some of the 20 hidden bonus symbols on the screen, and matching three such symbols rewards the player with the respective bonus amount.

When testing the slot, I managed to trigger the Invisible Woman feature, and the free spins session was rewarding - total winnings of $149 with a coin value of $0.01.
