X-Men is one of the first games to be released from Cryptologic’s Marvel Superheroes series. This online slots game features a variety of X-Men rather than just basing its theme on only one hero. Symbols feature the most popular X-Men, including Professor X, Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm and Jean Grey. This game was one of the first to revolutionize action slots, featuring animated symbols and unique bonus rounds.
The X-Men online slots game will appeal to players with a larger bankroll, as the smallest denomination available is $.05. High rollers, on the other hand, will be able to satisfy their gaming tastes, as players can bet upwards of $225 in one spin.
The wild symbol features a portrait of Professor X, but it does not multiply winnings. Instead, it makes the player eligible for the maximum jackpot of $7500. The scatter symbol is the Xavier Institute, which must be aligned from left to right in order for the player to receive scatter payout prizes.
The bonus round is triggered when the scatter symbols line up in the appropriate fashion, taking the player to a battle mini-game. The player must choose one superhero and fight enemies (including Juggernaut, Magneto and Sentinals) in various zones, in a manner similar to console fighting games where the player must deplete their opponent’s life metre. After the fight, the player is awarded bonus points, a number that is determined by the amount of life the player has in his own metre.
