There are numerous super hero games online, but they are incredibly popular, and, if done well, there is plenty of room for them to co-exist peacefully.
The Yggdrasil Super Heroes slot offers a new take on the genre, with a muted but atmospheric backdrop, and a focus on the villains our heroes must defeat.
Three rows of five reels hover on the screen and are populated by villainous creatures. The heroes appear only when you get to the bonus features.
As we’ve come to expect from Yggdrasil, the comic-book graphics are fantastic, but it’s the multitude of bonuses which make Super Heroes a cut above many similar games.
Firstly, the fact that there are seven separate bonus features is bound to endear it to slot enthusiasts. Secondly, the features are fun, inventive and fit the theme perfectly.
If you manage to land three Free Spins bonus symbols anywhere on the reels, you will be awarded four free spins. Four of the symbols will give you 5 free spins and five will trigger a whopping seven free spins.
Most slots have a free spins feature of some description, but in Super Heroes it come with a special Hero Mode, which is triggered after every free spin.
You then get two heroes for the price of one, who level up to increase your potential pay-outs.
One of the super heroes changes all the high-value symbols into dice. The dice then spin until a prize is awarded for each. The prizes vary in value, but you can win up to 1,000 coins for each high paying symbol!
Here, a blade thrown by one of the super heroes turns up to 4 random reels into wild reels.
You can play Super Heroes from as little as 20p to £100 a spin, just choose your line bet coin value and press spin to get started.
The higher value symbols are super villains, with the low-value ones being represented by futuristic suit symbols.
Look out for the Free Spin symbol, as landing three or more anywhere on the reels will activate the Free Spins round. You can get up to seven free spins here, and each one triggers Hero Mode to help you win.
Two heroes help you ‘level up’ each time to access bigger and better potential prizes.
There are a large variety of added extras to Super Heroes, from Random Symbols, where symbols are changed by a laser beam being shot into the ground, to extra free spins courtesy of a portal created by one of the heroes.
The Free Spins bonus features are as follows which, with the exception of Extra Free Spins, can also be triggered in the base game:
The Wild Reel feature, described above, is probably one of the most profitable as you have potentially five extra wilds to help you form winning combinations. This is particularly true if you manage to combine it with some decent multipliers.
Either way, you have super fun!
