From the super hero movie comes the super hero pokie. The X-Men progressive jackpot pokie is part of Playtech’s Marvel Comics jackpot series, and it is fully packed with the X-Men characters from Wolverine, Magneto, Professor X, all the way down to Cyclops, Beast and Storm. With 5 reels and 25 paylines, the X-Men pokie is famous for its bonus games and the 4 jackpots it’s connected to.
X-Men has a minimum coin size of $0.01 and a maximum coin size of $5. After choosing your coin size in the left most corner, set the number of lines you want to bet on, and the bet per line. Adjust how many spins you want the pokie to spin by itself via the Auto Play function and then hit Spin. Once you are happy with your settings, you can give Turbo Mode a try. Turbo Mode makes the reels spin faster so you’ll see some real money action sooner.
Since the X-Men pokie uses only X-Men characters, you won’t find the usual number or letters on reels. The special symbols you need to look out for are:
Scatter symbol – this is the X-Men logo
Wild symbol – this is a symbol that says ‘Wild’
There are 4 jackpots, and as with the other Marvel Comics progressive pokies, the jackpot games are triggered randomly. With that being said, you will increase your odds if you place a higher wager. Our tip is to begin with relatively small bets per line, but to bet on all the lines – this way you’ll increase your chances of winning, although the wins might be small. Once you get warmed up, you can increase your bet per line and go for the big wins.
There are also some fantastic special features that pay well. Keep an eye out for the Heroes and Villains modes, plus the X-feature – you’ll be packing in free spins and multipliers regularly with these.
Coin size starts at $0.01 and goes to $5; max bet per line is 10 coins. With 25 paylines, that means your lowest bet per spin can be just $0.01, and the highest at $1,250 per spin. All this means that X-Men is a great pokie for those who are feeling cheap, as well as for high rollers looking to score big time.
The X-Men pokie falls into the medium volatility range – payouts are not super frequent, but they happen and are generous, thanks to the scatters and multipliers of sorts. Hitting the big progressive jackpot will not be easy, but it’s well worth the effort as it seeds at $100,000.
As with all Playtech’s Marvel Comics progressive jackpot pokies, X-Men has 4 jackpots: Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power, with Ultimate Power being the largest jackpot with a starting value of $100,000.
Jackpot games are triggered randomly and don’t require any special symbols or even a wining spin, although you can better your chances with higher bets. Once you are in a jackpot game, you are guaranteed to win something.
In the jackpot game, you’ll see 20 squares arranged in a 4 x 5 grid. Your job is to uncover the squares and if you find 3 matching symbols, you’ll win that symbol’s jackpot.
The X-Men pokie is based completely on the heroes and villains from the movie, from the lowest to the highest value symbols. Although the overall style of the pokie is not the most innovative according to today’s pokie designs, all of the characters are animated according to their super power and will definitely be a hit for fans of the comic.
We love the X-Men pokie for a bunch of reasons – other than being the comic’s fans, and the guaranteed wins in jackpot games, there are some cool special features that make this pokie deliver the money.
X-Feature: When the 5 X-Men come together to form an X (but without repeating symbols), you have a 5x multiplier. Ok, we know 5x isn’t mind blowing, but it’s still pretty good and it occurs frequently enough.
Free Game: Get 3 scatters (that’s the X-Men logo) anywhere and you’ll unlock the free game feature. The free bonus game includes free spins, plus the famous Heroes and Villains Modes.
Heroes Mode: In Heroes mode, you’ll only see the X-Men heroes while playing on unlimited free spins. Yes, you heard right – unlimited free spins! However, when you see Magneto, which acts as the Extra Wild, on reel 3, you will switch over to Villains Mode.
Villains Mode: You are granted 8 free spins here, and you will only see the X-Men villains. However, if you see Xavier, the Villain’s Extra Wild, before your 8 spins are up, he will take you back to Heroes Mode. You can potentially be playing for free for quite a bit!
X-Men is one of our favourite pokies from Playtech’s Marvel progressive jackpot series. Not only are there 4 jackpots with guaranteed wins, there are also unlimited free spins via the Heroes Mode in the bonus game. Bet size can be as low as a penny and can go up to $1,250 per spin, making X-Men a good choice for both budget players as well as more ambitious pokie pros.
