One of the darker heroes in a universe filled with do-gooders, Blade is a professional vampire-slayer hell-bent on ridding the world of blood-sucking parasites – and now you can help Marvel’s iconic character in his quest courtesy of his own self-titled video slot. A five-reel, 20-payline game, Blade utilises an innovative split symbol system whereby the game’s titular hero can appear to slice icons in two and potentially create six-of-a-kind combos. This results in the slot carrying a maximum regular jackpot of 25,000x players’ line bet, and it is also connected to the randomly-triggered Marvel Mystery Jackpot where players can win one of four huge prizes.
Blade is based on the titular hero of Marvel’s cult comic series, with the dark sunglasses-wearing slayer appearing on the reels alongside vampires, machine guns and various other lethal gadgets. The game features a deep red background and the buttons are spattered in blood just to hammer home what’s at stake (geddit?), while an all-action soundtrack helps set the mood for adventure.
As mentioned above, Blade benefits from an innovative split symbol feature that sees icons featured in winning paylines get sliced in two whenever the Blade Split logo appears on the last reel. This can potentially create six-of-a-kind combos, the most valuable of which is six Blades at 25,000x your bet. The game includes a free spins feature that is activated whenever players land three or more scatter symbols, with this awarding players 15 bonus games with a dynamic multiplier that increases by one for every consecutive win recorded up to a maximum of 5x. As with most Marvel slots, Blade also allows players to access one of four progressive jackpot amounts where huge money can be won.
Blade is a fully customisable slot that enables players to choose their coin size, their number of active paylines and how many coins they would like to wager on each line. These three variables are controlled by clearly marked buttons at the base of the console and – when combined – make the slot playable from anywhere between £0.20 and £200.00. Players are also able to queue up to 99 autospins for improved slaying efficiency using the plus and minus buttons.
Undoubtedly based on one of the coolest characters in the Marvel universe, Blade is a fast and furious video slot that retains all of the dark charm of its lead protagonist. The innovative split symbol feature means the slot is capable of some spectacular base game payouts, while access to the Marvel Mystery Jackpot allows players to walk away with a fortune on any given spin.
