Blade slot review

Blade Slots

Blade, the famous vampire hunter from the old Marvel Comics is now a fabulous online slot game available at all good Playtech casinos. Part of the excellent Marvel Slots series, the Blade slots machine is a thrilling game that’ll keep you on knife-edge suspense. A beautifully designed slot game all of Blade’s devastating and lethal weapons gleam wickedly as they parade in front of you.

This 5 reel video slot game sports 20 paylines, that’s 5 less than some of the other Marvel slot games such as Hulk and Iron Man, however the unique features in the Blade slot game more than make up for this and include the Blade Split Feature and the Blade Wild, which triggers a crazy Free Spins round.

With just 20 paylines, if you play the lowest coin denomination of 0.01, and just 1 coin per line, you’re betting 0.20 a spin and covering all paylines. You can play up to 10 coins per line, and the coin size increases up to £2, which if you play max coins, means you’re in the major league when it comes to online slots. Also, it’s a well known fact, that the higher your bets on these Marvel slot games, the easier it is to hit the special progressive jackpots – more on this later.

The main symbols to look out for in the Blade slot game are Blade himself who doubles up as the Wild. The Blade logo is the Scatter, and finally you have the Blade Split feature symbol. Each of these symbols or icons have their own special properties and have the ability to give your balance a mega boost with the right spin combinations.

Blade Split Feature

A totally unique feature to the Blade slot game, the Blade Split Feature in essence means bigger payouts – which is good news for all online slots fans. When the Blade Split symbol appears anywhere on the 5th reel, any winning paylines have the last symbol split into two with a quick slash of Blade's sword. This increases your payout up a notch on the paytable, and makes 5 of a kinds much more frequent, and even 6 of a kind! The king of all payouts with the Blade Split Feature is if you can spin up 6 Wild symbols (that's the Vampire hunter himself) with the help of the Feature, which will get you an astronomical 25,000x your line bet payout. Truly awesome!

Blade Scatter

The Scatter is our favourite, and represented by the official Blade logo. Not only are the payouts cool – 3, 4 or 5 Scatters get you payouts of 6, 66, or 666x your line bet (scary stuff!), but this is where the Free Games action starts, and gets crazier as it progresses.

To get into the Free Games round you'll need to spin at least 3 Blade scatters, anywhere on the reels. This immediately starts 15 Free Spins with a random multiplier on every win, which could be anything from 2x up to 5x. That's not all. After every winning spin the multiplier increases by 1 and hops up to the next level, keep winning and you'll get 5x multiplier on spin. But if you get a Free Spin that doesn't payout, the multiplier drops a level. The lowest it can drop to is 2x, and the highest is 5x. You'll see the multiplier icon light up in top left of screen, and top right corner your Free Spin win total is displayed.

Another great thing about the Free Games round is that you've got an extra Wild working for you you. The Scatter acts alongside the Blade Wild symbol, bringing you even more chances to win on every single spin, and making it pretty easy to retrigger the Free Games indefinitely – if you're super lucky!

Blade himself represents the Wild symbol in this slot game, you'll see him draw his sword and slash the symbol in two if he's part of the Blade Split feature, or draw his gun and shoot in a blinding flash if he's activated as a Wild in part of a winning combination.

Marvel Multi-Level Mystery Progressive Jackpot

If you're lucky enough to randomly trigger the progressive jackpot game then you'll be in Jackpot heaven! All the Marvel slots are tied to the Marvel Multi-Level Mystery Progressive Jackpot – sounds a bit long-winded but it's pretty cool if you can hit it. You can spin your way into the progressive jackpot game at any time, it's totally randomly triggered, and there's no special combination of icons needed for activation. Just keep playing the Blade slot, and the higher your stakes, the bigger your chances of gaining entry to this level.

Once in to the Mystery Progressive Jackpot you'll see a 4x5 screen and the current values of the 4 different progressive jackpots linked across all Playtech Marvel slot games. The lowest Jackpot level is the Power which is seeded at just $50, Extra Power is next up, Super Power follows that, and finally, with an initial seed of $100,000 is the almighty Ultimate Power jackpot. All you need to do is reveal 3 identical jackpot symbols on the grid to win that jackpot amount. It is a timed game, so try and be quick, but if you don't make it then the game will randomly pick squares for you until it finds 3 matching symbols – and you end up winning a delicious progressive jackpot, all thanks to the Blade slot!
