Like the Iron Man 2 movie itself, the Playtech comic book-themed slots really appear to be hitting their stride. Like many of the other superhero games, this 5 reel, 25 payline slot strikes the perfect balance of straightforward gameplay and cool features. Great graphics and effects add to even greater flavor to the experience, rounding out a game that really leaves very little to be desired.
As is the case with the other Playtech games in the same slot series, Iron Man 2 utilizes the stellar graphics employing motifs from the recent hit movie series. The visual presentation is excellent, but unfortunately the game is completely devoid of music. This is perhaps the only drawback to an otherwise outstanding game.
The aspect of the game that is most likely to strike you is the unusual nature of the symbols. More precisely, you will immediately notice that many of the symbols are “stacked,” i.e. cover more than one vertical spot on a single reel. All you have to know about these symbols is that they are treated as exactly the same icon regardless of whether they are the upper or lower “half” of the icon.
You do not need to grasp any fancy gimmicks or learn how to fly with a jet pack in order to comprehend how to play this game. Set the bet denomination per line, the number of paylines you would like to activate, and the bet per line. Next, click on “spin.” The rest is up to lady luck herself.
Aside from the cool stacked symbols, Iron Man 2 offers up a classic wild symbol (the eagle icon) that replaces all symbols aside from the scatter icon, the Iron Man 2 Logo. The latter of these is the key to unlocking 10 free spins that benefit from a 2x multiplier as well as added wilds on the reels.
