X-Men is one of the iconic slot machines from Playtech’s comic collection. The features go very well with the movie theme as a special prize can be won by getting hero symbols in an X on the screen and the free games are played in two modes. The Heroes Mode has an unlimited number of spins and it can trigger the Villains Mode for 8 games, with the chance to repeat the cycle.
One of the classic comic slot machines from Playtech that continues to have a strong fan base is X-Men. This was among the first games created by the provider in collaboration with comic characters and it is of course based on the first X-Men movie, released in 2000. The five reels will show three rows of symbols represented by various characters from the film as the mutants take their battle to the rollers in order to generate prizes for the players. A maximum of 25 lines can be activated and four jackpots are shown on the main screen. The X-Feature will be triggered when any of the hero symbols land in the X pattern on the center three reels and will immediately pay a prize worth five times the total bet. Free games are won with three or more scatters, showing the X-Men logo. The action begins in the Heroes Mode, where an unlimited number of free games can be played with only the five hero characters on the reels and a Magneto extra wild. If the Magneto symbol appears on the screen during the Heroes Mode, the free games will switch to Villains Mode for 8 spins for free. A Professor X extra wild in the Villains Mode will switch back to heroes. As a result, the free games can go on indefinitely with a bit of luck and will only end if the extra wild doesn’t appear before the spins in the Villains Mode are over. Regular Wild symbols are available in both modes, and in the base game. The Mystery Progressive Jackpot game is triggered randomly and consists of a screen of 20 squares hiding jackpot symbols. Matching three symbols will award the jackpot. As mentioned, the symbols show ten mutants in total, five heroes and five villains, and they will show short clips when forming combinations.
