The X-Men slots is another online video game from Playtech based on the well-known Marvel series. This game in particular has become very popular due to the 6 added features that Playtech included in the 5 X 5, 25-payline video slot game.
As you enter into the game you will be greeted with an introduction screen. The game’s X-Men superheroes, along with a cadre of super villains extend an invitation for you to witness the battle between them, which displays their long-standing hatred for each other and that exists between good and evil.
Interestingly enough, this game does not portray any real scenes from the movie, unlike the other Marvel themed games developed by Playtech that went on to become a hit movie. However, Playtech did an outstanding job on the graphics and the sound effects, making this an extremely entertaining game. All the superheroes and villains can be seen on your reels and the animation reflects each one’s particular superpowers.
The Mystique is very entertaining but a little disconcerting because she morphs before your eyes into another type of mutant. The Nightcrawler vanishes and somehow teleports off to another location. Storm causes lightening and literally controls the weather patterns, while Cyclops has red rays emitting from his frightening eyes.

X-Men Slot Bonuses
The “Wild” logo acts as the wild and can substitute for any of the other symbols in the game, apart from the scatter, which is the X-Men logo, to make a winning combo. If you have 2 or more Wild logos popping up on an active payline, you get a “separate” payout.
This is the same way the Wild Bonus gets activated, but it pays only when your “separate” payout is smaller than what you won from your Wild winnings. If you have 2 or more X-Men logos pop up on your payline the Scatter is activated. The amount you win is what the scatter wins you, multiplied by your total wager.
If you have 3 or more X-Men logos pop up on your reels, the Heroes Mode starts and you trigger the Unlimited Free Spins. You keep getting free spins until you have Magneto pop up on the 3rd reel. This sets off the Villain Mode, awarding 8 free spins. But if you want you can go back and play in the Heroes Mode, but only if Professor X pops up on the 3rd reel. When this happens you again have an unlimited number of free spins that last until Magneto draws you back into Villain Mode.
You are in Heroes Mode when starting the bonus game, but you end up in Villain Mode when the game ends after 8 free spins. You get double your wins for each winning combo. This is a lucky run and there is a chance of winning big if you can flip back and forth between Hero and Villain.
The X-Feature bonus gets activated when all 4 superheroes pop up on all 5 spots on reels 2, 3, and 4 and end up forming an X shape. When this happens, your reel bet is instantly multiplied by 5 and you get paid. However, this feature is only activated during normal play.
