The Playtech software has several redeeming features. It plays smoothly and allows the player to customize the playing arena. There is a comprehensive game history feature available. However the Auto Play feature is not customizable.
Easy to Understand (10)
The game rules have been clearly explained. The payout table is self explanatory. Both can be accessed by clicking the Info button.
Graphics & Sounds (9)
The graphics and sound are adequate but not exceptional. Therefore Blade does not score full marks in this category.
Theme and Concept (10)
Playtech has used all tools available to complement the theme. The symbols are taken from the Blade folklore and show appropriate animation. Even the high value card symbols fit into the theme because of their appearance and animations. The Blade Symbol Split feature fits in well with the theme as does the martial background music in the free spins.
Game Features (10)
The wild symbol offers the highest line payouts. The scatter symbol triggers the Free Games feature. This feature is made interesting by the changing multiplier that increases with winning spins and decreases with non-winning spins. This is an innovative feature. The Blade Symbol Split feature is also innovative. Apart from the visual interest it has tremendous payout potential. When activated it converts a five reel slot game to a six reel slot game.
Betting Options (10)
Because all three betting parameters can be manipulated and all three offer excellent flexibility the betting range is large. The total bet per spin varies from 0.01 to 1000.00 credits and this makes the slot game suitable for both low rollers and high rollers.
The jackpots are great in this slot game. First there is the four level Marvel Mystery progressive jackpot. Then the highest fixed jackpot can pay 25,000 coins if hit with the Blade Symbol Split feature activated. At maximum line bet this pays 1,250,000 credits.
