Iron Man 3 from Playtech: Slot Review - no chinks in the armour here
Based on the 2013 movie starring Robert Downey Junior, Iron Man, War Machine and Iron Patriot aim to save the world. The Iron Man 3 film has been a great success and is the 5th highest earning movie of all time!
Iron Man 3 certainly fits the mould of previous Playtech Marvel slots; 9, 10, J, Q, K and A are the low value symbols but the higher value ones are related to the theme so we have a range of Stark’s body suits as well as the enemy, Mandarin. The Iron Man logo is the wild and the game’s logo is the scatter symbol.
The game has 5 reels and 25 paylines. The base game has 3 scatter symbols to look out for – these are Mark 42, War Machine and Iron Patriot. If Mark 42 appears on reel 1, War Machine appears on reel 3 and Iron Patriot appears on reel 5 at the same time, you will trigger the All Systems Go Re-Spin feature. They will remain on the reels and give you 1 re-spin. Don’t expect to win that much from this feature even though I won over 50 times my stake a few times. Normally wins are between 5 and 10 times your stake.
The bigger wins will come from the Hall of Armor Free Games feature – you can activate it by obtaining 3 (or more) Iron Man logo anywhere across the reels. You are taken to a screen where you will choose from 3 free spins modes. These are based on the characters outlined above and vary in what they offer you.
All Systems Go Respin
This is a minor bonus and you can trigger it by landing the three different body suits (blue, gold and black) on reels one, three and five; you’ll get just one respin but the body suits remain in place and you only need to land two matching symbols to land a win.
Hall Of Armor Free Games
Landing three or more of the Iron Man game’s logo anywhere on the reels will trigger the main bonus game and when you do you can choose from three different game modes as follows:
Mark 42 – ten free games with freezing wilds + landing the gold body suit on reel three wins three more spins
War Machine – eight free games with random wilds + landing the black body suit on reel three wins three more spins
Iron Patriot – 15 free games with dynamic multiplier + landing the blue body suit on reel three wins three more spins
More spins can be triggered indefinitely by landing three more scatters during the bonus game.
Theme and Graphics
Iron Man 3 from Playtech is graphically brilliant. It looks very futuristic and gives those overall iron-clad surroundings feel to the game.
