Dust off your cape and get ready to fly! Super Heroes Slot from Yggdrasil Gaming presents five reels across three rows with 20 fixed Paylines and takes a futuristic theme, inspired by beings with superpowers who are fighting to save the world.
The slot is set a thousand years into the future, and you’ll be controlling a hi-tech spacecraft on a mission to overcome the evil cyborgs before landing. Will the city be safe in your hands?
Released in autumn 2016, the game showcases the stunning animations and graphics for which the Scandi studio is known. It has the feel of a comic book and features half a dozen superheroes who are striving to save the planet from destruction.
How to play
Spin away from 20p a pop on any device or for up to £100 a time if you’re a high roller.
Our heroes are Mirage, Hopper, Trance, Raven, Knox and Tesla. They don’t feature as symbols, but each one has their own distinct character traits. A dystopian, gloomy cityscape forms the backdrop, seen through the transparent reels, alongside some sci-fi-style graphics.
The less lucrative symbols are four geometric shapes, in green, blue, purple and red.
Meanwhile, the better payers are the dodgy-looking villains of the piece, most easily identified by the colours they come in – purple, green, blue and brown.
As ever, land three in a row for a winning combo.
Super Heroes Slot special features
Your Wild symbol here is a big blazing icon bearing that word, and as usual, it replaces the others bar the Scatter free spins emblem.
Three or more of the free spins Scatters triggers this feature, anywhere you like on the reels. Land three to enjoy four free whirls, four to get five and five to play seven no-charge spins.
‘Hero’ mode kicks in after every freebie. This means that one of the six superheroes then assists you in winning larger prizes on every free spin. Each one has four levels, and the superpowers are as follows:
- Raven: Up to four reels turn Wild
- Hopper: Up to five symbols convert to Wilds
- Knox: Your total win is multiplied up to 5x
- Trance: Adds up to four further free whirls (available in the free spins round only)
- Tesla: Up to five icons become matching so you’re guaranteed a win
Mirage: All high-paying emblems become dice, which spin for mystery wins of up to 10,000 coins
All of these bonuses incorporate appropriately futuristic elements, from rotating blades to meteor showers, plasma beams and a special power ball.
Finally, if, as sometimes, happens, two of the characters rock up, things are really going your way.
There’s no progressive jackpot here. Instead, there’s a maximum win of €320,000.
Return to Player (RTP)
Super Heroes Slot is a medium-variance affair with wins nicely balanced in both the bonus rounds and base game. RTP or Return to Player is 96.1%; not the highest but equally it’s far from the worst.
You should feel immersed in the action with Super Heroes Slot from the first spin, and appreciate the creative bonus features. In a nutshell, we reckon this is a high-quality offering, which should grab and hold your attention and imagination.
It may not have the biggest payouts, but the comic-book feel has a broad appeal.
See how you get on – take it for a spin in free demo mode first of all – and let us know what you thought.
