As part of their ever growing Marvel series of online slots, the game wizards at Playtech have introduced the mighty Blade into the online slot arena as the theme of this particular Marvel title. Blade is a shadowy character from the Marvel comic book universe created in 1973 by Marv Wolfman. Born in 1929 in London, his mother had complications during birth and sent for a doctor who turned out to be a vampire. The doctor took the opportunity to feast on her during the birth and eventually killed her. As a result it passed vampire traits onto her baby (Blade). Half man and half vampire, he grew up to become a vigilante and set about on a mission to hunt down and kill all the remaining vampires.
He made his film debut in the 90s in the film ‘Blade’ starring Wesley Snipes. Casino software house Playtech created this Marvel video slot based on the story from the movie rather than the antics directly from the comic book series.
Blade is equipped with 20 paylines lines, 3 rows and 5 reels and, to make this video slot a little more interesting for you, Playtech has added great graphics and sound fx to compliment the whole package. Symbols found on the reels themselves include blood spatter, boomerang blades, silver rods, weapons and general icons like vampires and Blade himself. The familiar card symbols found in many online slot are also present albeit they’ve been given the Blade thematic makeover at the same time.
Playtech has really done a good job when it comes to the design of this slot and you will be able to spend more than just a few hours in front of the game without feeling the need to change to another. Bets start at 0.01 up to a maximum of 200. This allows you to select the betting amounts you like without your wallet feeling the strain and lets you maximize your available bankroll at the same time.
Bonuses and Rewards

In this game you are rewarded with 15 free spins and an alternating multiplier. The game will start with a randomly selected multiplier between 2x and 5x. After each spin that you win, the multiplier will increase by another multiplier but can not increase more than the 5x. After each spin where you do not win, the multiplier will be reduced by one though the multiplier value cannot fall below x2. The Blade Logo symbol also acts as an extra wild during this game and can net you even more free spins.
The Blade Split feature is activated when the Blade Split symbol appears anywhere on reel 5. The last symbol in each winning combination is divided into two parts and is counted as an extra symbol on the payline. For example, if a winning combination consists of three symbols. The symbol on the third reel will be awarded and the combination will payout for four symbols.
