The Avengers Slots

The-AvengersThe Avengers is a slot machine from Playtech, and it’s also the name of a movie from Marvel and a comic book from the same company. Based on the movie, not on the comic book, it has symbols with photos of the actors that played in it, so you’re going to see Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson among the others that are almost as well known as these two. The action revolves around a team of superheroes, including Iron Man, the Black Widow, Thor and The Hulk, plus the SHIELD organization.

While there are a lot of things that make this slot special, the layout is not one of them. You only get 20 paylines and 5 reels, the standard setup. The features are impressive whenever the four types of free spins are triggered, but you also have bonus games, wild symbols and a scatter. The prize can be either a progressive jackpot offered by Marvel, or the slot’s own $250,000.

Features of The Avengers

The base game features look like standard ones, with scatter symbols, wilds and other features which can get triggered, like the bonus game or the free spins. The free spins are the ones that are the most detailed, with about four different modes that can be played, each one with its own advantages.

The SHIELD Logo is chosen to represent the wild symbol in the game. Having these symbols arranged on paylines, with two to five Logos starting from the leftmost position, will give you payouts of up to 10,000x, which are quite generous. Being a wild, you can obviously expect it to act as a substitute as well, and to be quite useful in many occasions.

The scatter symbol has the other important logo on it, that of the Avengers. It’s a symbol which triggers the very important Wall of Heroes bonus, but it also gives you prizes of its own, so if you have enough of them they will make it worth it for you. You get paid between 3x and 100x the value of the bet.

The Avengers Assemble

This is a bit of a mixed pay combo. You need five characters to appear on the five position of a combination, without mattering in which order they do it. The five that you need are Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk and Fury. If this combo of five heroes is formed, you will get paid 200 times the line bet. The wild can’t be part of this combo.


Wall of Heroes Bonus

While it starts off as a bonus game, this is the feature which eventually brings you the free spins, but first it makes a game of it. You need at least three Avengers Logos on the reels, in scattered positions. This will trigger a bonus game with 20 Logos on the screen.

The game asks you to pick from the logos, each one revealing one of four heroes. Once you get three matching hero icons, you get the free spins which correspond to that character. You use the free spins, and then you come back to this Wall of Heroes, where once again you get your chance to a new round of free spins. This can keep happening until you find the Loki symbol, which will end the feature.


If three Captain America icons are found in the bonus game, you get the free games that this character governs. It has 9 free spins for you, with a random multiplier of 2x to 5x applying to the wins of each round.

Iron Man’s free games give you 9 rounds as well, but here the advantage you get is different. You start with a 1x multiplier, and for each 3 spins you go through it will go up by 1x. The middle position of the 3rd reel gets a permanent wild for these free spins.

Thor also has 9 free spins for you. Extra wilds are placed on the reels, 0 to 5 symbols like this being distributed on the reels by lightning that shoots out of Thor’s hammer.

Hulk has his own free spins mode as well, also with 9 rounds in it. The extra advantage comes from the Hulk, which appears as a stacked wild on the 3rd reel.

Betting options and jackpots

There isn’t much to think about in this game, not if you know your budget at least. You decide how many lines you want activated, you use the same number of coins, and you decide on their denomination as well, within the range of $0.01 to $25. The most you can spend is $500 for one spin, but you can go with a very low bet as well if you’re in it mostly for the fun.

With five wilds helping out from the same line, your jackpot will be at 10,000 coins, which would have a $250,000 value. The progressive jackpots from Marvel provide you with an alternative, though they are triggered at random and the symbols of the game don’t influence them one bit.

Design and symbols

The game doesn’t use advanced graphics or too many details, but the multiple photos of characters from the movie appear often enough on the reels that they make it look good anyway. Otherwise, what you will find is a design which uses a lot of dark blue, with a metallic background in this color, plus poker cards which are simple letters that all look the same.


Symbols: SHIELD Logo (wild, 10,000 coins), Avengers Logo (100x bet, scatter), Captain America (1,000 coins), Iron Man (500 coins), Thor (500 coins), The Hulk (400 coins), Fury (300 coins), Black Widow (300 coins), Hawkeye (250 coins), Ace (150 coins), King (150 coins) and Queen (150 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

If you’re a fan of the Marvel comic books, and if you’re looking at this slot you probably are, I’d recommend you try out this game. It pays well, it has impressive prizes and the design is quite good also, especially when the characters take over the reels.

The Avengers, a 2012 Film

The first Avengers film appeared in 2012, having Joss Whedon as its director. The inspiration came from the comic book with the same name, which is one of the Marvel creations. It is a superhero title, which brings together multiple characters from the Marvel universe. You will find in the team of the Avengers names like Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk and Captain America. They are recruited by the organization known as SHIELD, to fight together against Loki, Thor’s brother.

The Avengers can be found at any Playtech casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
