Man of Steel Review
|Our Rating:||4 / 5|
- Loads of variety. The sheer number of side games makes Man of Steel a great game to revisit on multiple occasions.
- Progressive jackpot. We always love the opportunity to win a life changing sum of money.
- Great look and feel. The symbols and background have been tastefully designed, and the music adds an additional layer of suspense.
- Large upper betting limit and main game prizes.
- Can be a little confusing to play. There is a whole lot going on.
The highest pay outs on Man of Steel are awarded for hitting five-of-a-kind of the main character symbols. Being as I’m no expert on the world of Superman, describing each has been a challenge. However, the prizes for matching five along a single win line are listed below:
- Superman = 1,000x the line bet.
- General Zod = 1,000x the line bet.
- Faora = 1,000x the line bet.
- Superman logo = 1,000x the line bet.
- World logo = 1,000x the line bet.
- Unknown Super Villain = 1,000x the line bet.
- Martha Kent = 250x the line bet.
- Jonathan Kent = 200x the line bet.
- Professor Hamilton = 150x the line bet.
Superman vs General Zod Shifting Wilds
If either the Superman or General Zod “wild” symbols land on the reels, they will shift to a new position on every spin. Zod moves left and Superman always to the right. If they land on the same row, they trigger the Battle for Earth Free Games Bonus.
Battle for Earth Free Games
Landing both Superman and General Zod (or another villain symbol) on the same row will trigger the Battle for Earth Free Games. During this mode, Superman takes to the skies to do battle with General Zod and his warriors.
When the two “wild” symbols meet, the two characters do battle and each of these clashes will create addition “wild” symbols. The free games mode is technically unlimited but it will finish when Superman loses a battle.
Krypton Free Games
Landing the “Krypton Bonus” symbol on reel five will award players with seven Krypton Free Games. This takes the action to Krypton where the symbols pay even higher. During these games, there are 50 pay lines too and up to 10 Jor-El “wild” symbol will lock on the reels for every spin. Finally, these free games can be retriggered.
The enhanced payments during the Krypton free games are as follows for five-of-a-kind:
- Jor-El = 1,000x the line bet.
- Superman logo = 500x the line bet.
- Woman = 200x the line bet.
- Monster with orange background = 150x the line bet.
- Monster with green background = 100x the line bet.
- All other symbols = 25x the line bet.
World Engine Bonus
Landing the “Bonus” symbol on reel five will trigger the World Engine Bonus. This terraforming blast will unearth additional “wild” symbols. There can be up to seven “wilds” added.
The Man of Steel slot machine is part of the DC Super Heroes Jackpot range. Any single spin can trigger the bonus and once started, at least one of the prizes must be won. Players using any sized bet are eligible to win any of the progressive jackpots. However, those favouring larger bets will be more likely to enter the side game.
The progressive jackpot game is played by collecting symbols representing each of the four progressive jackpots. The higher prizes require more symbols be collected. This, of course, lowers the chances of dropping the real life changing money. Players must select from a wall of hexagons. These will reveal different coloured symbols representing each of the jackpots available.
In addition to the game’s higher value symbols, there are also those which do not pay quite as well. These have been inspired by items from the plot of the film, Man of Steel. Each will pay the following for hitting five-of-a-kind along a single win line.
- Fighter jet, or school bus = 50x the line bet.
- Daily Planet, or Camera = 35x the line bet.
- Clark’s glasses, or Mail box = 25x the line bet.
The number of win lines is fixed on the Man of Steel slot machine. This means that players can only alter the total bet figure. The minimum total bet is just 50p. With its 25 pay lines, this means that you’re effectively playing with 2p bet per line. Meanwhile, using the maximum value of £100 per line bet, the largest total bet possible is an impressive £2,500. Betting this big will require something else of steel too though.
There really is a lot to love about this homage to one of the DC Universes brightest stars. Man of Steel is a brilliant slot machine version of the origins of of the best-loved super heroes. It features many great bonus rounds, a fantastic look and feel, and it’s possible to win truly unbelievable sums of money during the progressive jackpot round.
