Spider-Man is arguably one of the most famous and popular of all the Marvel comic characters, so we were really happy to see this slot being released by Cryptologic. It’s superbly rendered, with graphics that make the reels really come to life. The animations add some good touches as well, and of course the game play is smooth and solid.
This is a video slot that has 5 reels and 25 paylines and you have a choice of betting on all of them or any of them. Coin sizes are well spaced – you can bet anything from 1c to $5 in various increments, and for those feeling a bit adventurous, this goes all the way up to a $125 bet. In terms of return on investment, in normal play you’re looking at a $25,000 top payout. Certainly worth the price of admission, so to speak. Speaking of returns, you also get 3 different jackpots – the Hero jackpot, the Super Hero jackpot and the Marvel Hero jackpot. These range from a couple of hundred dollars to almost $20,000 – and they can be awarded at any time while you’re playing.
Spider-Man has more that it reveals as you play. There are two different bonus features to add to your prize winning potential. When the Wild Spider-Man symbol appears on reels 2 and 4, the third reel becomes wild, and all combinations are recalculated, giving you more winnings to add to any existing payline win you may have had. There’s also the Venom game, triggered by the Scatter game logo. Here you get to take Spider-Man through the maze of the city to find Venom and win yourself more prize money.
What an absorbing web this game weaves – head off to a Cryptologic casino right now to discover it.
