The Fantastic Four slots game is based on the characters from the Marvel comics. It is a five reel, 25 payline video slots game with plenty of bonus features and three progressive jackpots. This article will review the Fantastic Four slots game developed by Cryptologic software, which was launched in December 2007. The game features impressive graphics and sound effects with wild symbols, scatters, free spins, multipliers and bonus rounds for added excitement.
Symbols in Fantastic Four Slots
The symbols of the game center on the theme of the Fantastic Four. There are a total of five wild symbols in the game – Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman, the Human Torch, the Thing and Dr Doom – which appear in reels 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively. The wild symbols can replace any other symbol to create a winning combination, except for the scatter symbol. The Fantastic Fours logo acts as a scatter symbol. If you spin two scatter symbols you are awarded with an instant cash prize and if you spin three the bonus game is activated. Other symbols include the DNA symbol and common symbols such as 9, 10, J, Q, K, A.
The characters represent different feature combinations:
– Mr. Fantastic – 15 free games with prizes multiplied by two. If Mr. Fantastic appears on reel 1 as part of winning combination, all positions on reel 1 become a wild symbol.
– Invisible Woman – 10 free games with prizes multiplied by three. If the Invisible Woman appears on reel 2, more free games are awarded.
– Human Torch – 10 free games with prizes multiplied by three. The Human Torch wild symbol is added to all the reels.
