Ghost Rider Slots

Ghost-RiderGhost Rider is a game which is based on a comic book from the Marvel universe. It’s the one called “Ghost Rider”, and the developer which was chosen to bring it to slot form is called Playtech. The comic book tells the story of Johnny Blaze, a stunt biker that sells his soul to an arch-demon in order to save his father’s life. He rides a motorcycle, he has a flaming skull and he’s been around in comic books since 1972.

Based on a title from Marvel Comics, it will offer a progressive jackpot that comes from them, and to get their prizes you have to bet on a maximum of 20 paylines. Among the features of Ghost Rider there are bonus games, free spins, a multiplier, a couple of scatters and wilds. Besides that progressive jackpot, there will also be a $500,000 prize to look out for.

Features of Ghost Rider

The game being created under license, it obviously needs to be of good quality in order to satisfy the audience that the theme comes with. The slot tries to achieve this with the help of expanding wild symbols, scatters, bonus games, free spins, multipliers and even a couple of progressive jackpots.

The Flaming Skull is one of the more impressive images from the slot, and the designers chose it for the main role, that of the wild feature. It’s a regular wild, and limited only to the reels 2, 3 and 4, but that’s for the base game. The free spins get it in expanding wild form. Wilds will substitute for almost all symbols, but will not do it when scatters are involved.

With the Ghost Rider Logo, you can expect lots of good things to happen. First of all, the symbol is a scatter feature, which means that it is required to appear a certain number of times, but that it doesn’t matter on which positions this happens. Rewards of 1x start when you get at least two Logos, with the maximum of 100x the bet coming from all five.

Free Games Feature

As it often happens, scatters offer two types of prizes in this game. First, we have the cash prize, which we talked about above. The second one is the round with 10 free spins, for which you need 3+ symbols with the Logo. These spins get 3x multipliers, so the payouts are tripled.

One added bonus is the fact that the wild symbol becomes the kind that expands on the entire reel, but that’s only for the free spins. The option to retrigger the free spins is there as well.

Ghost Hunt Bonus

The way to get into the bonus game is unusual, requiring that you activate reels as you play the game. It can take quite a few of spins before all the reels become activated, and the slot will save your progress. To activate a reel, you need the Fire Bike on the middle position. Once you have the five activated reels, the bonus game starts.

In the bonus game, you have to assist the Ghost Rider in hunting down a total of 10 ghosts. You get prizes from the ghosts you catch. At least 7 prizes are offered, but with a bit of luck you will catch them all and get 10 payouts.

Betting options and jackpots

Everyone can cover a bet in Ghost Rider. You choose how many of the 20 lines will be selected and how much each of those coins is valued at ($0.01 to $50 range). That maximum bet is worth $1,000.

As for the prizes which the game promises, they will bring you 10,000 coins, with a top value of $500,000. Naturally, this being a Marvel themed slot machine, it also has progressive jackpots.

Design and symbols

Given the collaboration with Marvel Comics, I would’ve expected superior graphics from this Playtech slot machine, but it’s far from that. You get an older style of design from it, which even uses poker cards which appear to be made out of steel. It’s not a great look for it all things considered, and it doesn’t seem to get much help from Marvel.


Symbols: Flaming Bike (bonus), Flaming Skull (wild), Ghost Rider Logo (scatter, 100 times bet), Ghost Rider (10,000 coins), Demon (1,000 coins), Book (250 coins), Scroll (250 coins), Ace (125 coins), King (125 coins), Queen (75 coins), Jack (75 coins), 10 (50 coins) and 9 (50 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s a game designed with the fans of the comic book in mind. It pays very well, has good features, so it should be a game to try out whatever your preferences are regarding this particular comic book.
