Playtech is the king of Marvel themed, superhero slots. All those games carry progressive jackpots (run on the same network, admittedly), and some come in two formats. The Incredible Hulk is one such slot. It is based on the comic book of the same name and can offer you both 25-line and 50-line versions to play. The 50-line slot is far grander in terms of wins, even if it does cost more and the features are identical to its smaller-scale sister. It’s the 50-line goliath that we will be focusing on.
Look and feel
The Incredible Hulk slot machine features icons which look right at home in a Marvel comic book series such as The Hulk. Expect to find helicopters, beakers of radioactive liquid, nuclear hazard emblems, police squad cars, and high playing card symbols stylised in concrete all present in this slot machine.
There have been several Incredible Hulk themed slots over the years, but by choosing not to base this game on any at all, and making it themed on the comic book series, Playtech have ensured that this Hulk slot has continued to remain popular. It might continue to do so if Playtech is somehow able to keep offering Marvel themed slots in the future, but don’t bank on that.
Players who want a great degree of flexibility with their wagers will find the 25-line slot more their cup of tea. All 25 lines can be altered. In the mammoth 50-line version, you can still choose coin denominations which range from 1p up to £1, and bet as many as 10 coins per line, but all 50 lines are frozen into place. Wagers on the 50-line slot stem from a base minimum of 50p per spin, up to a capped maximum stake of £500 a pop. The 25-line slot features a maximum wager costing only half that, but understandably the prizes are worth less.
Bruce Banner makes his appearance as The Hulk as a wild icon in this game. Wilds can appear on the three central reels and expand to occupy whole reels. Scatter icons can trigger up to 10 free games, with all winnings multiplied by 3x the normal rate of pay when 3 such symbols appear in any position on the reels.
The Smash Bonus is triggered by landing bonus icons on the first and fifth reels. In this feature, players can police cars for cash prizes, and then helicopters for multipliers. A randomly triggered Hulk Rage bonus can offer you destroy all 7 cop cars for you for bigger wins but don’t bank on this appearing every time.
The more you wager, the likelier you are to trigger the random Marvel Mystery Progressive Jackpot Bonus, where you can match progressive symbols to win jackpots worth as much as several hundred thousand pounds.
