The original Iron Man film version of the Marvel comics character and its sequel were both critical and commercial successes but not many were expecting the reception awaiting Iron Man 3 when it was released in 2013. The movie became only the 16th to make more than one billion American dollars worldwide and became the fifth-highest grossing film of all time. Not surprisingly Playtech, which licensed the first two movies to put out slots games, also got in line to bring Iron Man 3 to your hands in 2014.
Iron Man 3 is a five-reel mobile slots game than give you chances to win on 25 paylines. You can start the reels spinning with as little as 0.01 coins and wager up to 1.00 coin per line for a maximum play of 25.00 coins. There is a progressive jackpot worthy of a superhero – four of them in fact.
Ironman is billionaire playboy Tony Stark who made his money as an engineer and industrialist. After being kidnapped by terrorists hoping to force him to build a weapon of mass destruction he suffered a crippling chest injury which forced him to create an armoured suit with which he uses to fight crime as a member of the League of Justice. In Iron Man 3 Stark is forced to do battle with an aspiring engineer named Killian whose ideas he dismissed years earlier that have now proven super-deadly. The symbols are various depictions of Ironman’s famous body suits and his arch enemy, Mandarin.
The Arc Reactor Symbol is the Wild and it stands in for all other symbols to create wins, except for the Scatters. But with Iron Man 3 it is all about the bonus games.
The most inconsequential is the All Systems Go Re-Spin Bonus which comes about when IronMan Mark 42 is on Reel 1, the Iron Patriot is on Reel 3 and the War Machine is on Reel 5. Yes, it pays to know Iron Man’s wardrobe as the reels spin. When this happens the Scatters remain locked for a single prize-laden spin.
More meaty is the Hall of Armour Bonus that is activated by three or more Iron Man Scatter icons anywhere on the reels. You are now presented with the golden chance to participate in one of three games: the Iron Man Mark 42 Bonus, the Iron Patriot Bonus, and the War Machine Bonus.
The Iron Man Mark 42 Bonus delivers ten free spins with Freezing Wilds. Anytime the Wild appears it sticks around for the next three games. if Iron Man Mark 42 flies onto the centre reel you will win three more free spins.
The Iron Patriot Bonus brings you 15 free spins and a Dynamic Multiplier Tony Stark would be proud of. You begin with a random multiplier between 1X and 5X but it increases by 1X every time the Iron Patriot shows up on Reels 1, 2, 4 or 5. If the Iron Patriot fails to arrive for the rescue the multiplier will decrease by 1X. Reel 3 is reserved for a possibly unlimited amount of free spins on Reel 3.
The War Machine Bonus rewards you eight free spins and they come packed with Random Wilds. Before each spin the War Machine anoints three symbols to be Wild for that turn. If the War machine descends onto the centre reel you win three extra spins.
And there are those Marvel jackpots: Power, Super Power, Extra Power and Ultimate Power that are drawing coins from every player in the Iron Man 3 network waiting to be deposited into your bank at random on any spin. If you are lucky you may win enough to finance Iron Man 4.
