Know the Enemy
With such an array of powers on display, it makes sense to get to know exactly what you’re up against and to do this you’ll need to visit the paytable. You can navigate away from the main screen using the “info” button and return using the “back” key.
You’ll win a payout by lining up matching symbols along an active payline and you’ll need either two or three to qualify for a win. The wild symbol is the highest value on the board, paying out a prize of 10,000 for matching five. As well as giving a big win, the wild symbol can step in for others on the reels and make it easier to create a winning combination. There’s also a scatter which gives access to the Heroes and Villains game with 8 free spins if you land three or more.
Once you’re ready to get started, return to the reels and set up your bet for your own preferences. There are 5 reels laid out in a 5×3 configuration which includes a maximum of 50 paylines. These can be reduced in increments of five if you prefer to play on less.
As an alternative to dropping the number of paylines, there’s lots of flexibility around the coin value and number of coins per line, which may be a better way of reducing the total bet without affecting your chances of a win. The coin value can be set between 0.01 and 1.00 with nine separate increments, and choose from between one and ten coins per line. This means that with all paylines activated, there’s a potential minimum bet of 0.50 and a total max bet of 500.00, playing with ten coins on the line.
As well as being able to win on the reels there’s additional bonuses available which can help to bump up your prize haul. Any fan will know the X sign very well, as it is the emblem for the team and appears in both the films and the comics. This time look out for the same sign on the reels, with the heroes in the position of an X. When this occurs you’ll win x5 your bet, adding to any scatter or line payouts.
There’s also the Marvel Multi-Level Mystery Jackpot, a potential big payout which could bring you a bonanza bonus. It’s available to everyone with the lucky player being selected at random; no win is required to be eligible. Although anyone could be picked in theory, the higher your bet is, the more likely you are to be chosen. Once you’ve been selected, you will definitely win one of the jackpot prizes but it’s up to you to determine which one. In a screen full of tokens you’ll need to turn them over until you match up three; this is the jackpot that you’ll be given as a prize.
