Two New X-Men Slot Games to Entice First Class X-Men Fans

June 16th, 2011  |  Published in Gambling Games

Recently released, X-Men: First Class was an immediate hit. The movie is scheduled to be released in several other countries in the middle of June 2011. X-Men: First Class is the prequel to the previously released X-Men movies. As a result, two Marvel X-Men branded online slot games have been released by Cryptologic and Playtech, two leading gaming software developers.

Lack of X-Men Promotion

Despite the release of their respective slot games, no casino powered by either software developer has announced an X-Men promotion.

Cryptologic X-Men Slot

The first to be released was the Cryptologic X-Men slot. The symbols consist mostly of characters from X-Men Legend. These include, Xavier, Storm, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Night Crawler, Gambit and Rogue. The highlight of the game is the bonus game which is a battle between the selected superhero and a villain. The character whose life meter is depleted first loses.

If the super hero loses, the player receives a consolation prize equal to the bet that activated the game. If the super hero wins, the player will receive the award equivalent to the amount of life left on the meter. The game is networked into the Marvel Slots progressive jackpot. Typically the higher the wagers the better chance of hitting. The Cryptologic version of X-Men is available at InterCasino and VIP Casino.

Playtech X-Men Slot

The Playtech variant of X-Men is a much more updated version of the series. The game features the same characters on the reels as the Cryptologic version only with much better animation. Each of the characters displays their super powers. Also, the X feature pays five times the total bet when super hero icons occupy all five positions on reels 2-4 when forming an X.

Free Spins Round

The free spins feature boasts a Heroes mode and Villains mode. The game begins in Heroes mode but when Magneto is displayed on the third reel, the game switches to Villains mode. However, when Xavier appears on the third reels it switches back to Heroes mode. The Playtech version is linked to the four-level Marvel Mystery Jackpot.

Both games are extremely exciting and accurate to the movie series. However, the updated Playtech version is more fun, with better payouts and graphics. Therefore, if the choice must be made to select between the two, choose the Playtech version.
