There has never been a better time for comic fans to play online slots. Both DC Comics and Marvel are continually doing battle with many of the leading iGaming software developers to design engaging and immersive comic slot titles that add a new layer of interaction among comic gamers.
Estonian software company Playtech are one of the pioneers of online slots and have masterminded several of the newest comic slot releases in 2019/20. The firm triumphed at the recent EGR Nordics Awards 2020, cementing its place as one of Scandinavia’s primary casino platform providers. Given that Playtech is a software provider that partners with online casinos across the world, it is highly likely that you will find an operator that offers a library of comic slots. Some of which may also give you a chance to try the games for size with free spin rewards that entice new customers to sign up and play.
Without further ado, if you want to know the best slot titles inspired by your comic book heroes, read on as we reveal the top six for your entertainment:
Suicide Squad (DC Comics)
The 2016 Suicide Squad movie, inspired by the DC Comics crack team of super-villains, has also had a video slot remake. There are plenty of familiar faces on the reels, namely Deadshot, brilliantly played by Will Smith, Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and The Joker (Jared Leto), all three of which only appear on the reels as expanded symbols. Suicide Squad is also connected to the DC Super Heroes progressive jackpot, which pays out at random and can potentially yield life-changing sums of money.
If you are a millennial of 1980s era, the chances are you will have been fond of Marvel’s ThunderCats cartoon show. So popular were these cat-like heroes that Marvel eventually launched a ThunderCats comic book of their own. The ThunderCats slot, powered by Blueprint Gaming, is an equally thunderous game. During random spins, the reels can expand from four to eight rows high, giving you more active paylines to play with. There are five separate free spins bonuses that can be triggered too.
Aquaman (DC Comics)
The $1 billion Warner Bros/DC Entertainment collaboration on the 2018 Aquaman movie has well and truly brought this fictional superhero to life. Dubbed the Fast & Furious of superhero movie releases, this half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur is on a quest to safeguard the ocean as the king of Atlantis, of which the story is told brilliantly through its new online slot too. Playtech have had a major hand in this release, with the five-reel slot featuring an impressive 243 ways to win during any base game spin. A four-tiered progressive jackpot should also keep you occupied.
Superman: The Movie (DC Comics)
Heavily inspired by the 1978 original Superman movie, the Superman: The Movie video slot is one for the purists. With exclusive symbols on the reels taken from the movie itself, starring Christopher Reeves, there are plenty of bonus features too like the Save the Day free spins and the Crystal bonus screen. The latter is a pick-me-style bonus game, which allows you to pick cash prizes or win multipliers and determine your own destiny.
Captain America (Marvel)
Marvel’s Captain America dates back as far as March 1941, becoming an inspirational comic character during the wartime era, before being discontinued in the early 50s. Marvel’s rebirth of Captain America in the 60s has held firm ever since. Rated sixth by IGN in its list of the top 100 comic book heroes of all time, Captain America now has a slot worthy of his status too. Based on The First Avenger movie, Playtech’s slot title is based largely around the Super Energy Free Spins bonus, with expanding wilds, win multipliers and re-triggers aplenty.
Thor: The Mighty Avenger (Marvel)
Thor has been a huge figure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in recent times, as well as Marvel Comics. With his very own slot, you get to embrace the power of the Asgardians on all five reels. It’s possible to bag unlimited re-spins with frozen winning symbols locked in place. A four-tier progressive jackpot is also included here, which seems to be a running theme among the leading comic slot titles.
Slot games are yet another way that our favorite comic book characters are brought to life on-screen. With high-definition visuals and audio, combined with intuitive gameplay, it’s like being in the thick of a DC or Marvel movie!
