Though it’s been a few years since The Avengers was actually released, it still stands up against many of the newer releases from Playtech. It has all the features you would want from a great video slot including a bonus round, a progressive, a high fixed jackpot, free spins and excellent design and functionality. At first glance though, you may think that the game seems a little simplistic, but this is a good thing and when you delve deeper into the bonus rounds, you’ll notice that it has a lot of layers.
The Avengers make up the game’s symbols among others and they could appear on the reels at any time to help you get a win. Watch as Captain America flies in five times to give you a thousand coins or as Thor’s mighty hammer releases a generous 500-coin payout. Though the other heroes pay less, there is that big jackpot to hit. If you find all five of those Avengers, you can also get a special win called the Avengers Assemble win. This gives you an extra 200 times multiplier.
Now let’s talk bonus rounds. The game’s logo triggers the bonus rounds and there are a couple of these, adapted for the different characters. The Captain America round gives you nine spins as well as a multiplier of between two times and five times for each of these. The Thor free spin round gives you nine spins too but each of the spinning hammer symbols could transform into a wild, which then helps you get more bucks. As for the Iron Man bonus, it’s nine spins again but with a multiplier that increases for every three spins of the reels. Also, the power pack will show up and act as another wild. Finally, you can also get 9 free spins in the Hulk round, which lets you get a stacked Hulk wild in the centre reel.
The progressive is also up for grabs and is growing with every moment, but if its big fixed wins you’re after, don’t forget that the game features a top fixed jackpot, which is a massive 10 000 coins. However, if you’re not as focused on wins, the bonus rounds will be more than enough to keep you happy.
There really isn’t much we didn’t like about this game and with its intricate winning potential, great characters and wins that could prove to be huge, it’s certainly one we’d recommend. Add to that the progressive jackpot and the many bonus rounds, and you have a Playtech masterpiece that every player should try at least once in their lives. Our rating: 95/100
