After the success of the movie X-Men, Hugh Jackman was given the opportunity to reprise his role as the Wolverine in the 2013 version of the movie with the same title. As one of Marvel Comic’s popular line of super heroes, Playtech jumped on the opportunity to develop and release its Wolverine Slot game.
The game’s format comes with 5 reels and 25 different pay lines. The Wolverine icon comes as a stacked wild on all reels. It also appears as solo wilds on reels 2 & 3. The wilds sub for all standard symbols. The game’s scatter symbol is the Wolverine claw, but it is essentially just another standard symbol. The other bonus symbols are the “Berserker Rage” symbol, which initiates a re-spin with extra wilds, and the “Adamantium” free spins symbol. Depending on how many Adamantium symbols appear, the player is rewarded with 4-12 free spins with freezing wilds.
Finally, the Wolverine slot is a participant in Playtech’s Marvel Mystery progressive jackpot where players are chosen at random for a chance to win one of the four different progressive jackpos being offered. All the player has to do is match 3 spots from a matrix of 20 spots to determine which jackpot they win.
