Playtech software recently did a deal with Marvel to launch a series of Marvel themed slots, one of which is the
very original and beautifully crafted Fantastic 4 Slot. The uniqueness of this slot is in the feature round which
awards free spins, but each set of 3 has a different theme and you can get extra free spins as you play. It's better
explained by watching the video of Fantastic 4 below which shows the bonus round in action, or better still,
play it yourself above!
The video graphics are excellent. Playtech really laid a benchmark when they launched the first of their
new generation video slot games, the Gladiator slot which uses video
footage from the motion picture along with soundbites and a very interesting free spins bonus. The Fantastic
Four slot is one of several Marvel slots from Playtech that are available at the casinos listed above. I'd also
recommend the Hulk slot and Iron Man 2 although a few of the Marvel games, like Elektra, Blade and even X-Men I
found a bit disappointing by comparison.
Some of you may be aware that Playtech actually launched a second version of the Fantastic 4 with 50 paylines rather
than the 20 in the game above. While they also took the opportunity to lower the RTP slightly, the extra paylines
also make the game lower variance and it's not uncommon for less volatile games to have a lower RTP. You can play
a free version of the 50-payline Fantastic 4 at Free Slots 24/7
if you want to see it in action. I should really finish by saying that Playtech also produce some decent movie-themed slots like
The Mummy which is arguably even better eye-candy than Fantastic 4 and the other Marvel series
games. Check it out.
