Complete Guide to the Marvel Online Slot Wolverine by PlayTech
Important Update: The 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!
Wolverine Slot is part of the Marvel-PlayTech progressive jackpot series. These games are linked to the blockbuster movies, and include animations, break out bonus games and video clips. The jackpots are not only linked between all of the Marvel slots, they are also linked between PlayTech casinos. There are 4 levels of Jackpot, with the biggest (called ‘Ultimate Power’) often in the $500,000+ range. Wolverine is based on the hugely popular X-Men character, though for Hugh Jackman fans you might be disappointed to find out that this is the comic book version of the character!
This page is a complete guide to the Wolverine slot, starting off with the setup, basics, wins and game-play. After that the bonus rounds (Adamantium Syringe and Berserker) are explained. Device compatibility, along with how this game compares with other online slots can be found at the end of the page.
Marvel Wolverine Slot - Game Basics
This slot has a 3D effect which adds a nice depth to the gameplay. Wolverine pounces out of nowhere and lands to the left side of the reels. He stands posing and reacting to the game - occasionally jumping across the reels to claw some extra wilds for you.
The Wolverine Slot is a 25 pay line 5-reel slot game. The minimum bet per line is $0.01 and the maximum is $25, meaning that the bet per spin can be, from as little as 25c all the way up to $625. The maximum standard payout in the Wolverine slot game is 3000 coins, though you’ll accumulate a lot more from the bonus rounds or occasional jackpot.
In the main game there are scatter symbols, wild symbols, Adamantium Syringe symbols and the Berserker Rage symbol, as well as the Wolverine claw, DNA and Dog tag symbols. The wild symbol, is the Wolverine, this will substitute any other symbol apart from the scatter, Berserker and Adamantium Syringe symbols, to make up a winning combination. Your wilds can also stack on 1 reel, and you can have up to 3 stacked wilds on any of the 5 reels during a spin. The scatter symbol is the Wolverine logo, if 3 or more of these land anywhere on the 5 reels you can win anything from 5 – 100 coins.
PlayTech Wolverine Slot Bonus Features
The best bonus on the Wolverine slot is the Adamantium Syringe game. If you land 3 or more of the Syringe symbols on any of the 5 reels adjacent to each other you trigger the bonus round and earn yourself 12 free spins. Once you have entered the bonus game you will see to the left that there is an Adamantium tank which you will gradually fill up each time a Syringe symbol lands in the bonus round. 1 symbol = 1 unit to the tank. Every time a Wolverine wild symbol, whether it be a single Wolverine wild symbol or double or triple stacked symbol, land on the reel the Adamantium from the tank will freeze the wilds until the tank is empty.
The Berserker Rage symbol is only on the 5th reel and will trigger 1 free spin plus a bonus depending where it lands on the reel. So, if it lands in the middle you will receive 3 – 5 random wilds, if it lands at the top you will get 2 – 4 Wolverine wilds and if it lands at the bottom you will get 2 stacked wilds on any reel.
The Marvel Jackpot is triggered randomly at any time during play of the game, there are 4 levels, with the top one giving you the possibility of life-changing money.
Wolverine Slot - Game Summary
Wolverine Slot is easy to play – with a nice balance of bonus action and features. The payouts can be low during basic game play, though this is balanced by the potential for big wins in the Berserker Bonus round with stacked wilds. If the game is a little slow for you the Turbo button can be used, this makes the reels spin faster.
Like many PlayTech slots, you can download the software client or play this game in your browser. The responsive Flash version will work on mobile devices, though iPad users will need a 3rd party browser plug in to be able to access flash.
This is one of the older Marvel slot games. If you enjoyed the others then you’ll want to have at least one session on this one. You never know, that Ultimate Power jackpot might just drop while you are checking the game out.
I recommend the Coral Casino for Marvel (PlayTech) slots, this household name casino and bookmaker are UK licensed, and offer a huge £50 in bonuses for only £10 in deposits – check out www.coralcasino.com for yourself now!
