Complete Guide to the Online Slot Ghost Rider by PlayTech
Important Update: Marvel games and their huge jackpots have now moved over to PlayTech's DC Comics slots... there are some excellent titles in this range (find out more in this detailed PlayTech Slot Jackpots page at SNG Planet). As for the Marvel titles, they are gone. The deal with PlayTech ended, and the slots are no longer online.
There are plenty more excellent games in the PlayTech range, my go-to for them is BGO casino. You'll get 10 no-deposit free spins (and can keep what you win without play-through) to check out the games. See www.bgo.com for details!
Ghost Rider Slot is an online slot where you have the chance to win one of Marvel’s 4 online progressive jackpots and also the 10000x bonus win on your line bet. The Marvel progressive jackpots have 4 levels - Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power – and are linked between all Marvel slots at all PlayTech casinos.
This page gives a detailed guide to the PlayTech Ghost Rider Slot. I have firstly covered the game basics. After that you’ll find information on the bonus games, there are 2 of them, the ‘Ghost Hunt Bonus’ and the ‘Free Spins Bonus’. Finally, I have given my overall opinion of the Ghost Rider slot with its good and bad points and I have also included advice on which devices the Ghost Rider Slot is compatible with.
Ghost Rider Slot – The Main Game
Ghost Rider Slot is part of the Marvel series, which includes titles like the Avengers and Incredible Hulk. When you first load up Ghost Rider you have a short intro film, to get you in the ‘SPIRIT’ of the game.
Ghost Rider slot is a 20 pay line 5-reel progressive jackpot game. The minimum bet is $0.20 and the maximum bet is $100 per spin. Even on the lower wager you could still win the large progressive jackpots – with your chances proportional to your bet size. You can choose the number of lines you want to play and your line bet. As always I recommend that you choose the maximum lines, and adjust your coin size to suit your bankroll. Like all PlayTech slots, you’ll find an auto play feature.
When you land a winning pay line all of the symbols are animated. The symbols include your standard 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, as well as, the Ghost Rider logo symbol, the Ghost Rider on his chopper, Ghost Rider’s flaming head, the Devil, Johnny Blaze, the Deal with the Devil Parchment and the Doomsday book.
The Flaming Chopper is a bonus symbol and went it lands on the middle of any reel it activates that reel, and if you manage to activate all 5 reels you trigger The Ghost Hunt Bonus round. If you land 3 Ghost Rider scatter symbols anywhere on the 5 reels at the same time you trigger the free spins round which will give you 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier.
Ghost Rider Slot – Bonus Games
When you have triggered the free spins round you have further possibilities of big wins by landing the wild Ghost Rider logo symbol on any reel in a winning combination, the wild will expand and cover the whole reel. If you get 3 Ghost Rider scatter symbols during the free spins round you will get 10 more spins.
The Ghost Rider bonus symbol lands on the middle of any reel activating that reel, when all 5 reels are triggered you will enter into the Ghost Hunt Bonus round. In this round the Ghost Rider speeds along the highway and must catch 10 ghosts coming towards him and for each ghost he strikes down you will get a multiplier. At the end of the game, these are added together and your win is paid out.
Ghost rider Slot – Summary
Like most of the PlayTech-Marvel games Ghost Rider is of the usual high standard in graphics and action. However it is not quite as advanced in these areas as some of the other Marvel slots, though it’s good enough to keep your attention and certainly a worthwhile addition to the range of games. It has a high pay out in the main and bonus games and the wilds land often, keeping you topped up. The biggest bonus, besides the Marvel progressive jackpot, is the multiple expanding wilds in the free spins bonus games – which can result in some significant wins.
Ghost Rider is available to play on your PC or Mac through the downloadable PlayTech client. Like all of the Marvel slots Ghost Rider is also available via Flash. Android is compatible, but Apple do not include Flash Apps on their devices, so you would have to download a special browser plug-in to play this game on an iOS device.
