We could not round off our collection of Playtech mobile slots reviews without including at least one Marvel slot, as those games virtually single-handedly anointed the developer as a force to be reckoned with. Not all of them have made their way onto mobile screens, with the original Iron Man, a personal favourite of ours, being a notable omission, but there should still be enough to keep hero fans happy among the selection, and one of the better games is The Avengers. The movie might have been known as Avengers Assemble over here in the UK to avoid confusion with the old television show, but the game retains the proper name and brings all of the action associated with the series, including big jackpots, themed features and more.
What to Expect
Part of the reason for selecting The Avengers among all of the hero slots in the Playtech range is that there are enough characters on the board to appeal to just about anyone. They are all pretty valuable, and can also offer a mixed pay win if you manage to line them all up at the same time, but generally you will be looking for them individually across the twenty win lines. A wild card will help things along at all times as normal, and that is represented by the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo, although the main draw on this game is the free spins round.
Land three Avengers logos on a spin at the same time and you will be taken to the Wall of Heroes, which is basically a pick round that sees players looking to match up three of the same hero. When completed successfully, players will then enter the hero’s specific round, which incorporates nine free games and an added themed feature. In Captain America’s free spins, for example, his shield will spin to award a multiplier on each spin of between two and five times, while Thor may show up to use lightning to turn symbols wild. When the nine spins have played out, it is back to the Wall of Heroes to attempt to re-enter another free spin round, although it is now possible to find Loki, who will bring the bonus to an end.
The randomly triggered jackpots that are closely associated with the Marvel range are present and correct here too and the only real advice to be given is that bigger bets stand more chance of triggering the mini-game. As with the free spins, players will be picking and matching until they land three of the same symbol, and that is the jackpot prize that will be awarded as a result.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
The Avengers is a good game that is sure to appeal to fans of the subject matter thanks to various themed twists and plenty of action overall. It does feel like it has failed to age too well, and is very similar to the more recently released Age of the Gods, but it is still one of our favourite superhero slots and a must-play mobile game for Marvel fans.
