Online casinos are popular with most ages but they certainly do seem to have a certain bias towards younger players. To counteract this and to give older players a reason to visit and
play most sites use their slots offering to tailor some games specifically to appeal to them.
One area where they’ve found a particular sweet spot is in the linking up with some of the major movie franchises of recent years and in particular with the ones that feature superheroes. In these, the larger than life characters and striking imagery make them the perfect subjects for games that are as entertaining as they are rewarding to play. Here are just four of the best of them.
The Fantastic Four
Available on a number of the most popular online slots arenas, this slot is themed to coincide with the very first film in the Fantastic Four series. Released back in 2005 it proved to be the most financially successful earning its makers around $155 million worldwide.
The slot features the five key characters from the film Mr Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, The Thing and the villainous Dr Doom in a pretty conventional five reel and four line machine. The reel symbols consist of the superheroes and the villain as well as 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. A key feature of the game is its x10,000 prize multiplier which means that some pretty fantastic winnings could be on the cards for you
Man of Steel
Similarly successful at the box office and achieving the highest gross revenue of any Superman film this 2013 move starred Henry Cavill in the title role.
Just like the film, this game takes place in two different worlds, down on Earth where we meet mild mannered Clark Kent and up on the dark and threatening planet of Krypton where General Zod and his armies are preparing to destroy Superman. As you’d expect, the sense of danger and jeopardy are the greatest on the superhero’s home planet – and so are the potential prizes.
With this year’s Logan being the 10th, and supposedly the last, in the X-Men series we simply have to mention this slot.
There are five reels giving a total of fifty potential paylines and there’s also a great X-themed feature that’s unique to the game. It comes into play when the “hero” symbols form the shape of an “X” and, as a result the player’s bet will be multiplied by five. There are also progressive jackpots that really do make it a game worth playing.
Iron Man 2
Inspired by the movie of the same name, Iron Man 2 features five reels and 25 paylines. Just like the film that grossed nearly $624 million worldwide it’s a real big hitter of a game with lots of bonus features to boost your winnings including ten free spins with an increasing multiplier as well as stacked symbols. There’s also a booming Iron Man voice that announces your bonuses and adds hugely to the thrill of the game.
