Spider-Man 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.
I have never really understood the lyric "does whatever a spider can". Sure, spiders do spin webs, but if Peter Parker really did what spiders do, he would spend 99% of his time resting in a corner, waiting for his next meal to come to him and having women swat at him with a broom. Not particularly glamorous if you ask me.
Thankfully, Marvel Comics are far more imaginative than I am, and Cryptologic even more so. Marvel's character is a young photojournalist bitten by a radioactive spider, which somehow gives him the ability to shoot webs out of his wrists and other cool stuff like that, which naturally he uses to fight crime. Spiderman has successfully spawned multiple television series and three very expensive live-action motion pictures.
Cryptologic's version of The Amazing Spiderman tends to ignore the film paradigm and stick to the original story set up in the comic books, which is a plus if you ask me. The graphics are crisp and fresh, and highly stylised.
This is a five reel video slot game with 25 pay lines. If I'm honest, I think the reason it really works for me, and for so many other people, is because of the bonus games - there are two different bonus games that can be triggered off this one slot.
You can play this game for as little as a penny or as much as $5. Playing at maximum bet, the top prize is worth $25,000, which is a tidy sum of money.
When three or more Spiderman logos appear from left to right, it's bonus game time. Now, unlike almost any other slot game I can think of, you actually get a choice in what bonus game you're going to play.
You can choose outright to take 15 free spins. This speaks for itself - 15 free spins of the reels. It's a cool bonus, but there's no special multiplier - the spins simply don't cost anything.
Alternatively, you can select the Venom feature. In the Venom feature, you must pursue Venom through the streets of the city in order to save Mary Jane. Along the way you encounter and foil other crimes, earning yourself cash bonuses. If you choose the wrong path, then Venom escapes and the bonus game is over.
The Amazing Spiderman is part of the Marvel Superheroes series of games, and as such it has three progressive jackpots attached to it, which are networked through all Cryptologic casinos worldwide. These progressive jackpots can be triggered at any time, even on losing spins, and are typically won every few hours, so it's well worth keeping your eye on the progressive total.
