Playtech Slot Review:  Captain America…The First Avenger!

All this week EuroGrand Casino and William Hill Casino Club are offering exclusive deposit bonuses for all Marvel themed slot games. We’re going to take a look today at one of those online slot games in particular. If you are a Marvel fan then it’s highly likely that you’ve heard of ‘The First Avenger’ Captain America who appeared first in his own Marvel comic in March 1941. Playtech have brought this character and story to life in a themed online slot of the same title.

Slot game overview

Captain America is a three row, five reel online slot that features 20 pay lines and a super bonus round that opens up a range of additional bonus features. The object in this slot game is to match the relevant symbols across the reels to win prizes. The bigger wins are found by matching themed symbols i.e. Captain America and The Red Skull during play and huge wins can be achieved when you hit five of either characters logo in a row. You can only use one coin per line but the value can range from $0.01 all the way up to $5.00.

“The inclusion of the progressive jackpot system on this slot will make it an exciting prospect for some players, the fact that it’s linked to every other Marvel slot at the site just makes the potential wins incredible to think about.”

Both Captain America and the Red Skull also act as the games versions of Wilds, with either symbol having the ability to be swapped for any of the games normal symbols or activating a 2x multiplier feature. Get 5 of either of those symbols in a row and you’ll receive a whopping 5000 credits. The machines scatter symbol comes in the form of Captain Americas shield, and hitting 2 or more of these will earn you a prize, hitting 5 can earn you potentially 100x the cost of your spin.

Bonus features

If you manage to land a Captain America on the 1st reel, a free spin on the 3rd and then a red skull on the 5th you will trigger the games bonus feature which also nets you 4 free spins. At this point you are prompted to play a mini game by choosing one symbol from nine squares available on screen. By choosing these you could potentially unlock more free spins, multipliers, bonus round free spins, expanding wilds and more. If during this mini game you reveal the ‘super spins’ feature then you’ll be awarded with 2 super pins, a hero and villain version. Each spins adds an extra character to the reels and they become expanding wilds.

Another great feature worth noting is the inclusion of a progressive jackpot as part of the slot. This Marvel progressive is linked with all the other Marvel slots to form part of a giant progressive jackpot network. If you manage to activate this bonus you’ll have to make your selection from 20 squares and try to land 3x the same symbol out of a choice of 4 power symbols. Each of the power symbols corresponds to one of four jackpots and if you do manage to land 3 of the same symbols then you will win that jackpot.

Our verdict

Playtech have done a great job converting the story of Captain America into an exciting and highly playable slot game. All the features in the game are fun while remaining relevant to the story and there’s more than enough going on during the game to keep it dynamic without becoming too repetitive. The inclusion of the progressive jackpot system on this slot will make it an exciting prospect for some players, the fact that it’s linked to every other Marvel slot at the site just makes the potential wins incredible to think about. All in all a fantastic slot game and one definitely worth your time.

With this month’s exclusive Marvel slot bonuses from EuroGrand Casino and William Hill Casino Club thrown into the mix there’s never been a better time to go play Captain America. Use these exclusive deposit bonuses to increase your chance to land that huge progressive jackpot. Best of luck soldier!
