As the name quite obviously implies, this game is of course about Super Heroes. However, these are not from the popular comic books or film series such as Marvel but rather some new saviours here to fight evil and protect the world. These super heroes are futuristic ones and the slot follows this theme with a rather murky dystopian cityscape and some edgy scifi-esque graphics.
Super Heroes with a 5 reel slot, 3 rows, and 25 fixed paylines is over the top with a rather foreboding red sky, a precursor of the future and what is to come. There are 6 main characters battling evil - Knox, Raven, Mirage, Tesla, Trance, and Hopper and interestingly they do not actually play as the symbols. Each of them has their own personality created specifically for this game, which makes it quite interesting.
The characters have traits such as mischievous, mysterious, hectic, mesmerising, hard hitting, and super charge, all with a little of their character reflected in their names. Instead of these new heroes, the 4 highest symbols are actually 4 somewhat menacing bad guy characters most easily described by their colour - brown, green, blue, and purple. Some lower values are simply just shapes and are similarly coloured, red, green, blue, and purple.
Prior to getting into this very exciting game, it is important to cover a few of the basics of game play in Super Heroes. Players begin by first setting the coin value that allows any coin size from 0.01 to 5. There is a minimum bet of €0.20 up to a decent €100 as the maximum. There is no progressive jackpot in this Yggdrasil game and sadly the actual jackpot is not the largest being only 500 coins. However, the Return to Player (RTP) rate of 96.5% does yield some decent wins and makes this a relatively profitable game, which makes players come back repeatedly.
Up next are the all-important bonus features and Super Heroes does not disappoint on this front. There are a few key symbols worthy of note at this point. A big Wild exists, which also buzzes and as usual, can substitute for all other symbols barring the Scatter icon. It is helpful and substitutes for the icon that would provide the highest win possible. The Scatter comes in the form of a bronze looking coin with the words Free Spin emblazoned across the middle.
The first feature is called the Super Hero feature. This can randomly appear throughout the regular game play. During random play, the superhero will be arbitrarily chosen for a specific level to play at. Later in the free spins feature, they will strictly begin only on the first level. When this occurs, one of the superheroes will appear on either side of the reels. It is important to remember who can do what as each of the super heroes has a different ability and this can drastically affect winnings and further game play.
As well as having different skills, there are 4 levels in each Super Hero game. The first is Mirage, which can turn all of the high valued icons into dice. This dice then spins a mystery win, which can be anywhere up to the amount of 1,000x. Raven will make up to 4 of the reels become Wild Reels. Hopper makes from 1 to 5 symbols turn Wild depending on which level the player is currently on – level 1 provides 2 Wilds but level 4 wins 5 Wilds. Tesla changes up to 5 into matching ones, which will guarantee a pleasant win for the player. Trance can add 4 extra spins to the game but this option only occurs when the free spin part of the game is underway. This occurs per level, hence, on level 1, only 1 extra spin is awarded but by level 4 there are 4 extra spins.
Finally, Knox multiples the overall total win by a multiplier of up to 5 times and does this by powering a power-ball and firing it off all of this just adding to the Super Hero mayhem. Overall, Super Heroes is a fun way to add some cash and boost those winnings. As mentioned before, there are 4 levels within each of these separate super hero games. The higher the level, the bigger the reward at the end.
Then the free spinscome. These are created by having a minimum of 3 and maximum of 5 Scatter symbols anywhere on the screen. The free spin winning number is rather small though with only 4, 5, or 7 spins won depending on the amount of Scatters that were landed on the reels in the first place. Do not forget, though, this is where Trance’s ability comes in handy by adding in those extra spins for more winning chances. During the free spins, the Super Hero feature is also triggered and obviously starts each level from the first before gradually moving to higher levels.
Super Heroes is an excellent game and becoming increasingly popular. To add to that it is mobile friendly. In fact, it was specifically designed initially for mobile phone screens. Compatible with all devices, android, iPhones, tablets and laptops alike, this is a welcome addition to the gaming world. Yggdrasil may not be well known at present but with its continuous output of quality games such as these, it surely will soon become a household name in the gaming world. The stunning graphics for the 5 super heroes definitely gives this game an edge over many others out there.
Whilst the payouts may not be as huge as on some other slots they are very consistent and the features are highly entertaining. The comic book feel is appealing to all types of gamers. The immersive nature of the game, the excellent bonuses, and the current super hero trend in pop culture serve to make this game an unmissable one.
