Super Heroes Slot
From top developer Yggdrasil, we have Super Heroes slot. As you can see from the video below, this exciting slot kicks off with an awesome animated video intro introducing you to the characters before the game puts you in front of 5x3 reels of well-designed sci-fi style symbols which animate when you get winning lines.
This game features 6 distinct and pretty cool superheroes who appear both in the base game and in Free Spin mode: Mirage, Raven, Hopper, Tesla, Trance and Knox. All the superheroes perform their own unique animations and award the player with various features such as wild reels, multipliers & extra Free Spins. The action heats up when a spin randomly activates Hero mode, where any two features are activated at once to give a magnificent mix of bonuses.
Hitting 3 or more of the free spins icon triggers free spins. Each free spin activates Superhero mode during which all superheroes start at level 1 and then "level up" each time they are summoned, up to level 4. The higher the level, the more powerful the superhero powers and thus the greater the rewards on offer!
Overall this is a superbly presented, fast-paced, slick slot game that is going to appeal especially if you're a fan of fan of sci-fi and/or video games.

Where Have Marvel Slot Machines Gone?
Until recently - April 2017 - players had a choice of both Marvel slots and DC Comics slots. Like comics and films, these were the leading two superhero companies that dominated the superhero slots scene. However, on 31st March 2017 all official Marvel slots licenses expired. For this, we have Disney to thank. Disney has owned Marvel since 2009. Introducing a family friendly policy, they decided to not renew the licence agreements with software providers for all the Marvel slot machines. As Disney also acquired Lucas Films Ltd in October 2012, this policy also affects all Star Wars slot machines as well.
It is not the first time and almost definitely will not be the last time that great slots get pulled due to companies policies and licencing issues. In November 2012, JRR Tolkien estate sued Warner Bros over Warner Bros providing Microgaming with a license for the Lord of The Rings Slot machine. Due to these legal problems, Microgaming was forced to pull the game and replace it with The Dark Knight slot machine (which has itself been removed from casinos!).
What Happened to The Marvel Slot Machines?
Playtech was the software provider behind some of the big Marvel slots games. As you can imagine, slots games take a lot of time and hard work to design, develop, test and deploy. It comes as no surprise that Playtech didn't want to lose these fantastic games that they had worked so hard to produce. The great news is this means you can still play the slots games. How? Well, all of the slots games have been renamed, re-skinned with new graphics and sound effects and are still live and playable today!
The games are all the same games with the same bonus features, payout rates, and the same fantastic linked progressive jackpots.
Here are the new names for the old Marvel slots games:-
- Iron Man 2 replaced by Age of the Gods
- The Incredible Hulk replaced by Age of the Gods Prince of Olympus
- Fantastic Four replaced by Age of the Gods Furious Four
- The Avengers replaced by Age of the Gods
- Elektra replaced by Age of the Gods Goddess of Wisdom
Although they are no more Superhero slots, they are another prevalent theme of Greek Mythology slots.
What Superhero Slots Are Still Available?
Disney's family-friendly policy only affects the companies that it owns. Therefore, DC Comics slots are safe for the time being. Keep your fingers crossed, that Warner Brothers doesn't decide to implement a similar policy.
Although not as many DC Comics superheroes have made it to the big screen "yet". There is a decent amount of DC Comics superhero slots machines.
DC Comic Superhero Slots to The Rescue!
Here is a list of all the DC Comic Superheroes that have a slot machine based on them:-
- The Green Lantern
- The Flash
- Wonder Woman
- Justice League
Microgaming Superheroes games: Hellboy Slot
Microgaming had two big hits with their Batman: Dark Knight and Batman: Dark Knight Rises slots games in 2015, however, both games were withdrawn in June 2016 leaving Microgaming in the position of having no superhero games in their casino suite. That said Microgaming do have their Hellboy slot.
Is Hellboy a superhero? We were in two minds here at Free Slots 4U - according to Wikipedia he is although we know many comic book fans disagree. In the end, we decided that while he might not be a classic tights and leotard wearing superhero hero he certainly fits into the same league as comic book mutants and oddballs such as Wolverine, so he's worthy of a mention here.
Play Hellboy Slot at our recommended Mirogaming casinosincluding Luxury Casino. Non-UK players can play at Royal Vegas and JackpotCity slot. As this is a Microgaming game it is not suitable for USA players.
What Other Superhero Slots Are There?
As well as the recommnded games listed above you can also check out the following:
Reel Force Five Slot
Join the superheroes Telektra, Magnetron, Celcia, Fireblade, and Titan as they attempt to stop the evil Baron Lightfinger in this 5 reel 25 paylines slot game from developers Core Gaming.
The game comes with no less than five Super Hero Bonus rounds for you to choose from and there are 5 wild symbols (one for each Super Hero) that are dedicated to each of the 5 reels.
The game is a fun take on the superhero theme, kicking off with a comic strip style intro complete with Austin Powers-style music!
This game has a neat feature in the form of random wins - during play the superheroes stand at the side of the reels and will randomly swap out every so often then, at random, the superhero will use their powers to modify the reels:
Telektra - Uses her powers to change current symbols to wild or bonus symbols. Can also nudge the reels around to give more wild or bonus symbols.
Magnetron - Uses his special powers to lock wild or bonus symbols in place while the reels re-spin to give more wild or bonus symbols.
Celcia - freezes wild or bonus symbols in place while the reels re-spin to give more wild symbols or bonus symbols.
Fireblade - Burns off symbols to reveal wild or bonus symbols.
Titan - Will demolish existing symbols to reveal wild or bonus symbols.
The Reel Hero Bonus feature is triggered when you hit three or more of the Reel Hero scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. A selection screen allows you to choose what bonus feature you would like to play. Each of the 5 features holds different rewards and with differing risks associated. Telektra's feature on the left of the screen is the easiest option, with lowest rewards, while the far right Titan is the most lucrative feature. However, it comes with the greatest risk.

Natural Powers Slot
From developer IGT we have Natural Powers slot game, a 5 reel 40 payline starring 4 sassy superheroines: Wind, Fire, Earth, Ice. Each of the Superheroines brings her special superpower to the reels:
FIRE - burns all Wind and Earth symbols from the reels (Wind, Earth, and WindEarth Logo symbols).
WIND - blows all Fire and Ice symbols from the reels (Fire, Ice, and FireIce Logo symbols).
ICE - Ice freezes away a random pattern of symbols.
EARTH - makes a random pattern of symbols leave the reels.
Wath out for the Super Team feature - the ladies may appear together when there are two Bonus symbols on the reels to cause a third Bonus symbol to cascade, triggering the Free Spins Bonus!
You can trigger free spins with three scattered Bonus symbols. Choose the number of free spins and the range of multipliers by selecting one of the Superheroines:
Fire - 5 free spins with 8x-10x multipliers
Wind - 8 free spins with 4x-10x multipliers
Ice - 12 free spins with 3x-5x multipliers
Earth - 15 free spins with 2x-4x multipliers
Regarding design, this is a bit of a quirky game - the reel symbols themselves are nothing special, and border on the naff, but the game does feature some nice cartoon animations featuring the superheroes when you manage to trigger one of the features.
It doesn't hold a candle to the more sophisticated Playtech DC comics slots or Super Lady Luck, mentioned above, but the superheroes special powers are an engaging way of injecting some originality into the game. It's worth trying out in demo mode first.
