Two new Marvel movies hit the theatres in May. Captain America: Civil War will be released globally this weekend and X-Men: Apocalypse later in the month. Playtech online casinos like Casino Tropez and Omni Casino offer branded slot games based on the first Captain America and X-Men movies. It is a good time to revisit these video slots, particularly as there are reports that the Marvel branded slots may be withdrawn when the current license expires. This article reviews X-Men.

The X-Men is a band of superheroes that has been assembled by Professor Xavier to combat the Brotherhood of Mutants, which is a group of super villains led by Magneto. Their unusual name derives from the superheroes possessing the X-Gene that gives them super powers. Professor Xavier, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Storm and Cyclops are the X-Men that appear as symbols on the reels. The super villains are represented by Magneto, Rogue, Mystique, Sabretooth and Juggernaut. If you are a Marvel fan then you will enjoy the win animations in which the characters display their super powers. The Wild logo is the wild symbol and the X-Men logo is the scatter symbol. The X Feature is a simple but innovative feature. When only superheroes occupy the 5 positions on reels 2, 3 and 4 that form an X, you receive a payout of 5 times the total bet.

The free spins feature is the scene of the battle between the superheroes and the super villains. It starts in the Heroes mode, which has unlimited number of spins. There has to be a catch. Only the superheroes, the wild symbol and Magneto as an extra wild appear in this mode. When Magneto lands on reel 3 the feature shifts to the Villains mode, which has only 8 free spins. The super villains, the wild symbol and Xavier as an extra wild appear in the Villains mode. When Xavier lands on reel 3 then the game switches to the Heroes mode. This way, the free spins can toggle between the two modes. But once you play 8 consecutive free spins in the Villains mode the free spins feature ends.
X-Men online slot is networked to the four-tier Marvel Mystery progressive jackpot. This is accessed through a randomly triggered bonus game. A grid of 20 squares on the screen hides the symbols of the four jackpot levels. You expose the symbols one at a time. As soon as you get three matching symbols, the corresponding progressive jackpot is hit.
