Software provider Playtech have released a number of superhero themed online slot games in the past, and now Man of Steel has joined their ranks with a lovely tribute to the 2013 film of the same name. As tends to be the case with these types of games, the graphics are of superb quality. They are almost life-like, in fact, and you get to see the characters exactly as they appear in the movie. Speaking of which, on either side of the reels you will have Superman and General Zod. They will be watching over gameplay from there, but their symbols will be actively participating in it as you will see for yourself shortly.
This brings us to the game’s layout and other technical aspects. As for the former, it features a grid of 5 reels and 3 rows, just like most video slots do, and in addition to that, you will have a total of 25 active paylines to bet on. The paylines are also fixed, so what you see is all you get. While you may think that’s not so bad for the betting range – think again. Stakes here are actually rather expensive and the minimum bet is a steep 50p per single spin. The maximum bet on the other hand will set you back an even heftier £2,500 per spin.
World Engine Bonus
Man of Steel boasts an incredible array of bonus features, and one of them is the World Engine Bonus Feature. You can activate this bonus with the help of the Scatter, which appears only on reel 5, and when it does up to 7 regular Wilds can be revealed on the reels.
A remarkable thing about Man of Steel is the number of Wild symbols it boasts. Most games have one, and some can even feature a second, but not this one. This title has a whopping 5 Wild symbols, and all of them offer the same payouts and are able to substitute for all other icons with the exception of the Scatters. In addition, not all Wilds are present on the reels at the same time. During the base game, for example, you only get to see Superman and General Zod, aside from the regular Wild.
Superman vs Zod Shifting Wilds
This leads us to the next feature, which is the Superman vs General Zod Shifting Wilds bonus. It is triggered when both of these Wild symbols land on the reels simultaneously. As a result, they will both stick around, and as the Superman Wild moves one position to the right on each spin, likewise, General Zod will move one position to the left. The feature goes on until both Wilds disappear from the reels.
Battle for Earth Freespins
To trigger this bonus, you will have to land Superman and General Zod on the same reel during a spin, and as a result you will get an unlimited number of freespins. Here, you will also get to see the remaining two Wilds. As the feature progresses, they will move along the reels until they end up on the same one as Superman. Once that happens, you will witness a brief battle between them. The freespins will end, however, if Superman loses.
Once the Krypton Bonus symbol appears on reel 5 this will activate the Krypton Freespins Feature. During this, you will receive a total of 7 freespins on a reel set with 50 paylines. Hence, you’ll benefit from better winning opportunities. You can even retrigger this feature by landing another Krypton Bonus symbol on reel 5, and in addition to that, you will get a brand new set of symbols, including a Sticky Wild.
Man of Steel is a fantastic medium variance title with an abundance of special features that won’t disappoint. Besides those, there is also the opportunity of randomly winning one of the four progressive jackpots.
