Fans of the Marvel Universe, created by Stan Lee and others, (read Stan lee biography) may be disappointed to find that they are no longer able to play their favourite slot games online. These action-packed slots gave endless hours of superhero themed entertainment and of course the chance to win big! So, what happened and how can we ever fill the gap it left?
When Marvel Comics pulled out of the iGaming industry on April 1st, 2017 it was a shock for many, but as Marvel Comics had been bought out by Disney back in 2009, the new owners felt that it was inappropriate for the Marvel characters to appear on casino and slot games. It was not considered family friendly and so the licenses with NextGen and Playtech were not renewed when they came up in 2013.
Fans of superheroes and graphic novels need not worry; there are a vast array of slot games in the same genre (albeit DC rather than Marvel) to enjoy. The graphics on the video slots are great and the pay outs are pretty decent too. There are several games with progressive jackpots so the chance to win big is there for the taking.
DC Comics slots are the most obvious alternative to the missing Marvel Comic games, as a matter of fact it is hard to differentiate between the two sets, apart from the characters being different of course.
There are a range of Batman slots to enjoy and they offer a high number of pay lines (each has 243), scatters and wilds, but each one has their own, completely unique bonus rounds. Players may find that they have a favourite game simply due to the bonus rounds, so it is important to try them all out to find out which one suits you best. Not all have the same pay out rate, but as with all slots the fun of the game is just as important as winning.
Choose from a range of Batman games that include Catwoman, The Riddler, The Penguin, Mr Freeze, The Joker and Batgirl. Progressive slots vary and each have free spins, you could win without it even costing you anything.
Slot games with a Superman theme are always popular, although they do not have as many win lines as the Batman range they are still fun to play. Win lines, depending on the game, range from 25 to 100, still plenty of chances to win with each spin. The games in the Superman range that have a progressive jackpot share this pot with the Batman progressive jackpot slot games, but there are many Superman games that do not have a progressive jackpot. They each have individual top prizes and are packed full of fun!
Choose from a range of Superman games such as Superman, Superman: The Movie, Superman: Last Son of Krypton and Superman – Man of Steel.
Other Superhero Slots
If you are looking for other slot games in the Superhero range that have progressive jackpots, then the Green Lantern, The Flash and Hellboy all share the same jackpot with Batman and Superman progressive games. The more players there are the faster that jackpot will rise, and it will just keep rising until it is won. There is the potential to win thousands in just one spin.
If you can’t choose which hero game you want to play then why not choose the Justice League game? All your favourite DC superheroes in one game! We can’t miss a shout out for girl power, and Wonder Woman Gold is the one for you if you prefer your superheroes to be a little more feminine.
While the Marvel slots will be missed by the huge amount of players they used to have it is clear that there are many other options for the serious superhero slots fan.
