The Spiderman franchise is one of the most lucrative in the world and now fans of the comic books, cartoons and films can get in on the action by playing The Amazing Spider-Man in the Betfair Arcade.
Betfair Spiderman Slot Game
The Spiderman slot is a five reel 25-line slot that features some amazing graphics, superb animations and cinema quality sounds. Players can experience these for just £0.10 per line or if they are feeling more flush they can wager up to £40 per line. Along with the usual standard video slot symbols, the Spiderman slot also boasts fully animated Spiderman symbols, a Mary Jane and arch-enemy Venom, the latter actually being quite scary, though not if the player matches five of his symbols as they will have won 5,000 times their line bet!
State-of-the-art slot machines like this offer some of the industry's best bonus rounds and Spiderman certainly does not disappoint, boasting three fantastic bonus features. The first is the Spiderweb Feature that is triggered when Spider-Man, which acts as a wild symbol, appears on Reels 2 and 4. Once winning combinations have been paid out, the third reel gets substituteds and any wins are multiplied by the line bet, meaning some huge prizes are there for the taking.
The other two bonus rounds are triggered when three or more of the scatter symbols appear from right to left. For the features to begin the player must have the scatter symbol on reels one, two and three, though they do not have to be on a win line. Once activated, the player can choose between a Free Game Feature or the Venom feature. The Free Game Feature gives the player 15 free games and additional Spider-man symbols and wild symbols are added to the second and fourth reels, increasing the chances of additional wins.
The Venom feature, arguably one of the best features to be included in an online video slot, sees the player become Spiderman and join his quest to defeat Venom and save Mary Jane. The player has to guide Spiderman through the streets of the city and if they find a dead-end the feature comes to an end and the player is awarded a consolation prize. If the player finds a crime scene they are awarded a random prize and the feature continues but the real fun happens when the player finds Venom! Here Spiderman and Venom have a fight and if Venom wins, the player wins a consolation prize and the feature ends. However, if Spiderman wins, Mary Jane is saved and a larger prize is awarded, before being multipliaed by the triggering bet.
As if that were not enough, as the Spiderman slot is a Marvel slot there is a progressive jackpot available for anyone who plays the game. All Marvel slots award the jackpot completely at random, but the size is based on the amount being wagered, so those playing for larger amounts will win more substantial prizes.
