Since there are over 17,000 online casinos on the internet, the need to be unique is very significant to attract players. This is why online operators need to constantly bring new and exciting games to their casino, to keep pleasing their players and keep them from getting bored. The one that is profiting from these developments is Marvel, because it is superheroes who are used to spice up the games of online casinos.
Marvel Entertainment Inc. has over 5,000 characters in stock. Marvel is focused in four areas: licensing, entertainment (Marvel Studios), toys (Toy Biz) and publishing (mostly cartoons). Marvel made a lot of money “lending” their characters to feature films, DVD/home videos, games and television shows. Now, another product can be added to this list: online betting games.
Some online games developers took several big superheroes from Marvel and put them in a new series of slot machine games. The superhero games are free to download and access, but if you want to play them, you need to deposit money at the cashiers of the online casinos that offer these games. The question is: what do these new characters add to the gaming experience?
Right now there are several different games available with different Marvel superheroes in online casinos: Hulk, Punisher, X-Men, Blade and Daredevil were the first. Five of the games are standard slots games, three row, five column, nine line video slots. The more lines you bet on, the more you pay, but the more money you can win.The graphics of the superheroes are impressive and really brighten up the games: when you play the X-men themed slots you’ll have all the classic teammates including Wolverine, Jean Grey and Rogue plus the villains of the X-men – Magneto, Sabretooth and Mystique. The Daredevil themed slot is also interesting and includes graphics of Bullseye, Kingpin and Elektra and an animated Daredevil wildcard.
The most powerful superhero game is an extra Hulk-themed “Fruit-Machine” where you can win many additional bonuses. In this game the Hulk, Abomination, Banner and Leader characters are presented in a three-by-three grid. If you win this bonus game, you can choose to keep playing and increase your winnings.The payouts of the special superhero themed games are maybe the best assets of the online betting games, since they are much higher than the standard slots jackpots.
