Daredevil is another Marvel-themed 5-reel max 20-pay line online slot from Playtech. Daredevil himself was created as a character in 1964 by the brilliant writer-editor Stan Lee and the artist Bill Everett. Daredevil is not your usual flavour of super hero as his super powers stem from an argument he once had with a vehicle carrying radioactive material, in which he lost the power of sight at the same time.
In 2003 Marvel released a live action movie of Daredevil which starred Ben Affleck, and which – in an uncanny homage to Daredevil – nobody went to see. A Netflix-produced version of Daredevil appeared with Charlie Cox as the blind super hero in April 2015.
Daredevil Gameplay and Symbols
You’ll find symbols in this slots game that range from playing card values nine to ace, plus a few characters from the comic book series – Kingpin, Elektra, Bullseye and Daredevil himself – and a couple of the super hero’s more deadlier weapons.
You can control your coin size from 0.01 all the way up to 5.00 for this slot, and you can choose as many of the available lines as you want to have in play, as well as the number of coins you want to risk with each spin from one to ten. Your final bet-per-spin is your coin value multiplied by the number of lines selected multiplied by the number of coins. Therefore, your minimum stake is 0.01, but you can be a real daredevil yourself and stake 1000.00 on a single spin.
Pay outs commence at 5x your bet-per-line for three nine or tens, up to the jackpot of 5,000x for five of our red-suited hero. You earn a win by landing at least three identical symbols in sequence on an active pay line from the left hand reel.
Once you’ve set your stake and you’re feeling daring, then be a devil and hit that spin button!
Daredevil Bonus Features
Wild Symbol: Daredevil is your wild hero here, and he acts as the wild symbol. Daredevil will substitute for every other symbol aside from the scatter.
Scatter Symbol: The Daredevil logo acts as the scatter symbol, and landing at least three anywhere on the reels will award you ten free games with random wilds.
During free games Daredevil makes use of his special radar sense and randomly turns between one and three symbols into wilds. Free games can be re-triggered.
Bullseye Feature: Before each spin you can select any one of the fifteen available symbol positions and place a bullseye target upon it. If the Bullseye character symbol ends up under the target after a spin, then you win 3x your total bet. This feature does not appear during free spins.
Marvel Multi-Level Mystery Progressive Jackpot: The progressive jackpot accumulates via all players currently playing any of Playtech’s Marvel-themed slots online. There are four possible jackpots – Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power. The jackpot is awarded randomly, but the more cash you wager on the Daredevil slot, the more chances of winning a jackpot you have.
If the jackpot screen should appear, you will see a 5×4 grid that contains twenty mystery squares. Keep selecting squares to reveal jackpot symbols beneath. Once you’ve uncovered three identical symbols, you receive the jackpot in question as your prize.
As far as Playtech’s Marvel-themed slots go, this online slots game echoes the fate of the 2003 film release as it’s something of a disappointment, with insufficient gameplay to keep you entertained and coming back for more.
That probably won’t deter the many fans of Playtech’s slots based on Marvel superheroes though, and at least there’s always the chance of winning one of those four juicy progressive jackpots.
