Game Description

Elektra is one of Marvel's most beautiful but mostly deadly characters and software giants Playtech have created a video slot based around her comic book antics. Being a Marvel title, this slot gives you the opportunity to win one of 4 progressive jackpot amounts from the Marvel progressive Jackpot Network, something we really love about all the Marvel Series of Online Slots.

When Elektra moves with her father to the United States she is enrolled at the same university as Matt Murdock (Daredevil) to study and the pair fall in love. Elektra then dumps him to become a professional assassin who starts working for the Kingpin. Perhaps you have already noticed that the Marvel characters more often than not cross over and run into each others storylines, this is true in the story of Elektra, she encounters many Marvel heroes such as Bullseye, Wolverine and Nick Fury along the way and a whole host of other Marvel characters.

Technical Characteristics

In the Elektra video slot players have access to 5 reels and three lines plus a total of 20 paylines. When you play 20 paylines, you have a chance to activate the progressive jackpot feature that makes the Marvel range of online slots so attractive in the first place.

The symbols you see on the reels are all weapons used by Elektra, These include throwing stars and crossbows. You will also see the traditional card symbols that feature regularly in online slots and they have been given an Elektra theme to keep them in line with the overall theme of the game. We should mention of course that the symbols also include Elektra's favorite weapon, namely her Sai. The theme is really well designed and you are instantly reminded of ninjas and assassins, the deadly world that Elektra is involved in.

Betting amounts range from 0.01 up to 1,000 per spin, you can pick and choose what suits you but when it comes to slots, naturally the higher the amount you choose to invest, the higher the profits you will be able to win in return.

Bonuses and Rewards

In this online slot the Elektra logo is the scatter symbol. Scatter wins are awarded when two or more of the Elektra logo symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Three or more Elektra logo symbols anywhere on the reels triggers the bonus weapon round. Players choose one of the three weapons used by Elektra to hopefully activate a bonus win. The Sai weapon offers 10 free spins, throwing stars give you 14 free spins with a x2 multiplier and the crossbow offers 7 free spins with a x4 multiplier. The chosen weapon will replace the two other arms symbols during free games. Wild symbols become expanding wilds during the bonus games. The weapons bonus round however cannot be retriggered.

Elektra herself is the Wild symbol and she appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4. It substitutes for all symbols except the scatter symbol. Elektra symbols do not offer any big benefits other than the regular wild symbol function.

Elektra is also linked to the Marvel Progressive Jackpot Network which extends across all Marvel Slots in and Marvel Roulette Games being played worldwide. Players are eligible to win one of 4 tiered progressive jackpots should they be lucky enough to trigger the jackpot game. These jackpots regularly extend into millions of dollars, euros and pounds depending on your location. It is one of the most lucrative jackpots available online and a great reason to play any Marvel online slot game.
