Thor: The Mighty Avenger is one of Playtech’s Marvel superhero themed slots, containing the 4-level Marvel Progressive Jackpots. Themed after the recent movie starring Thor with images from the film, and loaded with features, this slot is sure to appeal to most players.
Coin denominations in this progressive jackpot slot start out at only 1¢. Via the line bet button, they can be raised up to a total of $1, though players can only stake 1 coin per line. There are fixed total of 30 paylines, and this means your wagers are going to fall somewhere between the floor bet of 30¢ per spin, and the ceiling bet of $30 per spin. The progressive jackpot feature can be triggered by any bet, larger bets increase the chances of triggering it.
Thor is the wild icon, and it can also pay out a secondary jackpot of 5000 coins, if 5 are lined up on any payline. The Thor wild appears stacked on reels 2 and 4 in the main game, and when it covers the second reel, a Thunderstorm Re-Spin is triggered. Should it cover the fourth reel, a Lightning Free Spin is triggered. The wild subs itself for all icons with the exception of the scatter, and other special icons.
The Thunderstorm Re-Spin feature awards players a re-spin, with the second reel frozen with wild icons. The Lightning Free Spin feature gives gamers one free spin with 2 to 5 wilds distributed across the reels.
Thor’s Hammer is the scatter icon, but it simply pays as a scatter and doesn’t trigger anything.
The Gatekeeper icon will offer free games via the Rainbow Bridge Feature, when it is found to cover the entire third reel. In the free spins rounds, you must choose 1 of 2 orbs to move to your free spins destination. The main game is called Asgard and from there you can travel to Earth or Jotunheim, where you will get free spins. If you got there during a free spins round, it can either end the bonus and return you to the main game, or back to Jotunheim or Earth to play more free spins. Both free spin modes are played out on special reels, check out the screenshots below to see what they look like.
The Jotunheim free spins mode sees players land an extra wild, and free games can be played indefinitely until The Gatekeeper covers the entire third reel. If that extra wild is used in a winning combination, that payline is frozen for the next spin, guaranteeing at least the same win again or you could hit a bigger one.
The Earth free games mode adds a special symbol to the fifth reel only. If this symbol lands anywhere on reel 5, the scorching multiplier feature is triggered. Anywhere from 2 to 6 symbols will be lit on fire on the first four reels, and the frames of those symbols will remain lit for 1-4 spins. While they are on fire, if the symbols in those positions are part of a winning combination, the win is multiplied by 2, 4, 8, or 16 depending on the number of burning symbols in the win. These free spins also go on indefinitely, until the Gatekeeper covers the third reel.
Like all Marvel Progressive Jackpot network games, the jackpot can only be triggered randomly. In the jackpot game, the player is taken to a screen where they must pick symbols. The first three jackpot icons matched will see the player win that jackpot. There are four jackpots to win.
I’ve really enjoyed playing this slot since it was released, the many different features keep you entertained for a long time. You can find Thor: The Might Avenger at any of these trusted Playtech Casinos.
