Fantastic Four is a 5 reel (progressive), 25-payline, Cryptologic Video Slot. It comes with a wildSymbol, scatter symbol, multiplier, free spin and has a maximum jackpot win of $25,000.
The Fantastic Four is by now a completely legendary video slot title from Cryptologic, if not for its engrossing, near addictive game-play, then for the insane amount of money that can be won from playing it.
You see, every instance of The Fantastic Four that's being played at Cryptologic compatible casinos around the world is contributing to progressive jackpots that grows by the minute, and could be won at any time. The main progressive jackpot starts off at $5,000 and has no theoretical top limit - this is in addition to any normal jackpot that the game pays out on its own. Pretty sweet, huh?
Okay, looking at the game itself, as the name implies, this is a video slot title based on the Marvel superhero characters that you know from the comic books and the two wildly successful films. Refreshingly, the images on the reels don't seem to leverage directly from the films themselves, choosing instead to draw from the general mythos around the characters.
In terms of the technical stuff, this is a five reel video slot game that pays out on up to 25 different pay lines. Naturally you don't have to play all 25 at the same time; activating more than one simply increases your chances of winning something on a single spin.
The Fantastic Four accepts coin sizes from a single penny all the way up to 5 dollars. The top winning combination in this game pays out 5,000 coins. Before you go scrabbling for your pocket calculator, I've done the maths for you: this game pays out $25,000, assuming that you were playing it on maximum bet.
But remember the progressive jackpot I mentioned earlier? Well, this game actually contributes to not one but three different progressive jackpots that it's possible to win. They're called the Marvel Jackpot, the Super Hero Jackpot, and the Hero Jackpot.
The Marvel Jackpot is the big one, which starts off seeding at $5,000. The Super Hero Jackpot begins seeding at $500, and the Hero Jackpot seeds from $50. What's so cool about these progressives is that none of them has a top end limit, and they could be hit by any player at any time – you just never know.
They're not like those epic progressives that only get hit once every year – they turnaround time is typically a hit every couple of hours, so the average win on these tends to be in the tens of thousands of dollars – but still, pretty fantastic if you ask me!
Interestingly, this game has five wild symbols. All of the icons for the main characters - The Invisible Woman, The Human Torch, Mister Fantastic, The Thing, and even the villain Doctor Doom - are wild, and can be used to complete a winning combinations of other symbols on the game.
