Iron Man 1 Marvel Pokies
It’s a five reel and twenty five pay line game with a striking red background which reflects the colour of Stark’s bodysuit. The game features Playtech standard 9, 10, J, Q, K and A as the lower value symbols but the higher value symbols are all designed with the Iron Man film in mind. There are two different views of the bodysuit, missiles, a metal case and Tony Stark himself; the bodysuits also act as the wild symbols while the scatter symbols is the Iron Man logo.
Reels 2, 3 and 4 of Iron Man contain some stacked wild symbols and if you are lucky enough to land one with all three symbols in view it becomes an expanding wild, giving you some extra opportunities for wins, not too mention a short video clip.

The symbols are all related to the story and you can see Tony Stark himself, his foxy assistant Pepper Potts, arch-enemy Ivan Venko and a selection of various iron men, some of which actually look fairly similar.
This fruit machine is one of the few around that feature ‘stacked’ reels; these are just symbols which cover more than one vertical space on the reels and while they produce a different spin, there’s not much evidence that stacked reels add or detract from your winning chances.
There is no separate bonus game but Iron Man 2 offers enough other features and a ‘wild’ bonus symbol which pops up frequently to combine to make winning lines but it’s the ‘scatter’ feature which will probably hold your attention for longer. If you can spin the reels and land three or more scatter symbols you’ll get ten free spins for your effort; a ‘wild’ symbol will stay on the centre reel while all spins are in progress and a multiplier increases 1x with every spin.You can bet up to $1 per coin on this machine which means it’s possible to spend $250 per spin if you’re playing the maximum twenty five paylines withthe jackpot of $30,000.
Elektra Marvel Pokies
Elektra comes with a distinctive Japanese theme; it’s a five reel, twenty pay line pokie and the low value symbols are the standard 9, 10, J, Q, K and A while the higher value symbols are Elektra’s weapons and accessories.

- 10 free spins
- 14 free spins with 2x multiplier
- 7 free spins with a 4x multiplier
Each choice is allocated a weapon and when you choose your option, that weapon will replace the two you have not chosen when the free spins start. If you are lucky enough to land a wild on reels 2, 3 or 4, Elektra will expand to fill the whole reel, offering considerably more chances of a large profit.
There are four progressive jackpots and you can see them near the top of the screen labelled Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power. Any spin can get you a chance at the jackpot but the higher value the bet, the more chance you have of entering the jackpot game.

You can play one payline for just $0.01; if you’re not so concerned about the money it’s possible to splurge $400 per spin.
