Iron Man is one of my favourite Marvel characters, largely because he is so deeply flawed. He's just a man. He has no superpowers to speak of. All of his strength and speed comes from a suit that he wears, so really, all that's separating him from someone like you or I is just a couple of hundred billion dollars. Meh.
But it goes beyond that. His character is interesting. He is nihilistic and struggles to control his temper, yet is keenly self-aware. He's also an alcoholic. Yet on top of all of this, he strive to better himself. Tony Stark, the Iron Man, is a fascinating read.
Also he puts the smack-down on the villains. And the recent movie adaptation, while perhaps falling short in a couple of areas, was entirely bad ass. It was pure coolness from the moment the the lights dimmed until the credits rolled – and the Cryptologic game, although its not a tie-in, is no different.
Perhaps it's because of having such brilliant source material to draw from, but whatever the reason, the Iron Man game is ridiculously fun to play and will keep you engrossed for hours. Of particular note, although perhaps I shouldn't be surprised having played other Cryptologic games, is the animation. It's smooth, its flashy, and it's downright cool.
Purely from a technical perspective, then, Iron Man is a five reel video slot game. It supports up to 25 separate pay lines which players can activate using handy up and down control buttons located at the bottom of the screen.
It takes a broad range of coin sizes starting from just a penny and going up to $5, so there is as much action here for high rollers as there is for normal players. The top combination pays out 6,000 coins, and had you been playing on maximum bet, that would translate to $30,000 in real-world terms, which is a nice chunk of change.
The Iron Man himself is Wild, and if he completes a winning combination he flies around and shoots energy beams from his palms. If three or more Iron Man symbols appear on-screen at any time, the bonus game launches.
In the bonus game, you're trying to retrieve a stolen set of blue prints from an office building. You have to select which windows Iron Man should blast at to reveal prizes.
Bear in mind that in addition to any prize money you might win on this game, it is also linked to 3 progressive jackpots, which are networked across all instances of Iron Man at all Cryptologic casinos worldwide, and can be triggered at any time - extra incentive or what?
Please note: The existing agreement between Playtech and Marvel for the licensing of Marvel brands for Playtech games has ended. From 1st April 2017 this game will no longer be available.
