Marvel super hero movies are extremely popular in Australia. There are many Marvel fans who are also avid online casino players. The best thing that has happened for them is the agreement between online casino software provider Playtech and Marvel Movies. As a result of this, Playtech has developed over 15 branded online pokies featuring Marvel super heroes like Iron Man, Hulk, Spider-Man and Elektra. All of these are live at Playtech online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.
What makes the Marvel super hero branded pokies so exciting is that the audio and visual content from the movies is incorporated in them. Characters from the movies appear as symbols on the reels, whether as alter egos of the super heroes, their aides or their foes. The symbols also include details like the source of the super powers and the special weapons of the super heroes. The win animations may be clips from the movies or may be in some other way related to the Marvel super heroes.
Another reason for the popularity of the Marvel branded pokies is the exciting and innovative gaming features. For example in the Iron Man 2 video pokie there are Iron Man symbols that are stacked two rows high. The payout is as the same symbol appearing on both rows, but this way the visual appeal is better. Blade has introduced a new feature known as split symbol. The last symbol in a winning combination may be split into two and will pay a greater amount. X-Men pokie pits Marvel super heroes against Marvel super villains in an amazing free spins feature. You begin in the Heroes mode with unlimited free spins. The villain Magneto switches the free spins to the Villains mode. The hero Xavier can switch the feature back to the Heroes mode. Once eight cumulative free spins are played in the Villains mode the feature ends.
All the Marvel superhero slots are networked to the four-tier Marvel Mystery progressive jackpot. This progressive jackpot can be won through a randomly triggered bonus game without may be activated after any spin. The second screen displays 20 squares each of which hides a symbol for one of the jackpot levels. You have to click on the squares to reveal the symbols. As soon as you expose three symbols of a particular jackpot level, you win the amount in that level. The largest of the four jackpots is Ultimate Power that pays on an average AU$650,000 when hit.
