This is about as polished a slot machine you will find out there today. With a scatter bonus, wild symbol, unique X-feature and two free game modes, X-Men is firmly in the highest echelon of 5-slot progressive games available on the market today.
X-Men employs the theme of the classic comic book and recent movie series, pitting five of the heroes against five of the villains. The categories of icons underpin the pay line structures and bonus features. Don't worry if you have trouble keeping track of who is who or who is on what side; the blue background is used for the heroes, while a red background is draped behind the villains.
Begin by selecting a bet denomination; you can bet anywhere between 1 pence and 5 pounds. Then select how many pay lines between 1 and 25 you would like to play. Then, give the reel a spin and see what you can come up with.
Aside from the normal 25 pay lines, X-men also features a number of cool features: First is the wild symbol, which can replace all symbols save for the scatter symbol. 5 wild symbols will also win you a whopping 10,000 credits! Second is the scatter feature - line up at least 3 X-Men symbols and you will activate either the heroes mode or villains mode. In these two games, spins are free and winnings are multiplied as only symbols unique to a particular team appear on the slots. Third is the X feature. If you can put together 5 heroes in the form of an X in the middle of the slot, you win 5 times your bet!
Although the free version of this game does not make you eligible for the jackpot, in the paid version you are always eligible to receive the power, extra power, super power and ultimate power jackpots. These are triggered at random, although betting more in this game will raise your chances of accessing the bonus game which leads to these four jackpots.
