Undoubtedly one of the most beloved characters among Marvel’s group of X-Men, it was only a matter of time before Wolverine was given a video slot of his own. That’s exactly the situation in Playtech’s Wolverine, a five-reel, 25-payline title that features the Adamantium-clawed hero standing beside the gameboard as players rampage their way to big wins. Boasting a free spins feature where a potentially unlimited number of games can be won and access to the Marvel Mystery Jackpot, this is one title that certainly won’t rip your bankroll to shreds.
As the name would suggest, Wolverine is a video slot that focuses solely on the X-Men character of the same name. Clad in his signature yellow and blue attire, an animated Wolverine appears to the left of the reels and reacts to players’ spins, with the backdrop depicting a nuclear testing facility. An up-tempo techno soundtrack plays throughout the games, with dramatic sound effects being used to signal winning paylines and special Beserker Rage re-spins which are triggered by landing a unique symbol on the game’s fifth reel. Regular icons to feature in Wolverine include the titular hero, DNA helixes and a set of dog-tags, which helps to create a consistent and immersive comic book theme.
In addition to the randomly activated Marvel Mystery Jackpot feature, there are two main bonuses in Wolverine; the first a free spins mode and the second an in-reel re-spin. Dealing with them in order, landing three or more Adamantium syringes anywhere on the reels will launch 4-12 free spins, with a special Adamantium metre appearing alongside the reels. This metre will deplete by one for every spin taken, while landing subsequent syringes can also add additional spins to your total. Naturally, the feature ends when the Adamantium metre is completely drained. During the base game, players can also benefit from Beserker Rage re-spins. These are triggered automatically whenever the Beserker Rage symbol appears on the fifth reel, with players then receiving one re-spin that benefits from horizontal wilds, scattered wilds or completely wild reels.
Given the 25 playines in Wolverine are fixed throughout, players will only need to worry about their total bet per line amount before each spin. With this variable ranging from £0.01-£25.00 the game can be played from anywhere between £0.25 and £625.00 per spin, making it a title that is suitable for players using all bankrolls. An autoplay button allows players to queue up to 99 consecutive spins, while turbo mode can also be enabled to speed up the regular base game spins.
A fitting tribute to one of the most iconic X-Men characters of all time, Wolverine certainly delivers on the immense potential of its protagonist. Not only does the game give players access to the Marvel Mystery Jackpot on each and every spin, but a range of cool re-spin options and a potentially unlimited free spins game can really help them slash their way to some bankroll-boosting payouts.
