The Incredible Hulk progressive review
The Incredible Hulk progressive review
We’ve all heard of the Hulk – whether its the version played by Mark Ruffolo or the superhero created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby for Marvel Comics. But there’s also a version of the big green humanoid where you can win real money — The Incredible Hulk slot game. Created by Playtech, we take a look at whether the Incredible Hulk pokie is worth smashing out our wagers.
This is my table
The Incredible Hulk pokie format
Following a partnership between Playtech and Marvel, this 5 reel and 25 payline pokie based on The Incredible Hulk has been created. There’s also a 50 payline version which offers the same gameplay, except for the number of paylines available. It still features the same stunning graphics – but these are based on the cartoon and not the film we’ve come to love.
You can play as little as just one line or up to 50 with a range of coin sizes available – from 0.01 to 1.00. This results in a minimum of $0.01 (just one bet line activated and the coin size set at 0.01) and a maximum of $500 (all bet lines activated with coin size set at 1.00) per spin making this a suitable pokie for all limit players – low, mid and high rollers.
Choose your bet lines and coin size via the buttons under the reels and start playing either by clicking the ‘Spin Button’ or setting the number of spins you wish to play automatically and then clicking on ‘Auto Start’.
The Incredible Hulk symbols and payouts
The Marvel real money online slots game features the traditional 9 to A symbols to represent the low payouts, but they have been crafted to tie into the theme. You need at least three of a kind on a winning payline to receive a payout.
The middle paying symbols are represented by the helicopter and the police car, both of which payout with a minimum of two of a kind appearing on a winning payline.
The top paying symbols include the radioactive container and the symbol, both paying with just two of a kind symbol combinations on a winning payline.
You can click on the ‘Info’ button under the reels to view the payouts available, but there’s three more symbols you should take note of too including the Wild, Scatter and Bonus symbol.s
The Wild symbol is represented by The Hulk and appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 and substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter. It also can Expand for huge payouts.
Then there’s the Scatter symbol, represented by the logo of the game, which offers a payout as well as trigger the Free Spins feature.
Finally, there’s the Bonus symbol represented by the ‘Smash Bonus’ symbol which triggers the extra Bonus round.
What’s more, if you’re playing in real money mode you can trigger one of four progressive jackpots on offer.
The Incredible Hulk pokie bonus features
This pokie features a chance for huge payouts with their exciting bonuses.
First up is the Expanding Hulk feature where the Wild can appear in the centre of the middle reel, covering three symbols vertically for two Re-Spins. It will also occur if you land three wilds on reels 3, 4, and 5, but you will only score one Re-Spin here if this occurs.
Then there is the chance to win 3x your total bet for 10 Free Spins when you land at least three Scatter symbols. You can continue to earn more Free Spins, in lots of 10, by spinning the Scatter symbols at least three times during the bonus.
Finally, you can trigger the Smash Bonus – which the Hulk is famous for – by landing the symbols on reels 1 and 5. The reels will transform to a second screen featuring seven police cars and three helicopters. Players can fling a fire hydrant at three of the cop cars and then at one of the helicopters to reveal cash prizes and a multiplier, respectively. You may get lucky and randomly trigger the Hulk Rage Feature here too, where all cars are smashed for a huge payout.
The Incredible Hulk progressive
There’s four progressive jackpots available on The Incredible Hulk including Power, Super Power, Extra Power and Absolute Power.
These can be won at random – no need to play the maximum bet or have all paylines activated – where a 4×5 grid will appear where players click on the squares to reveal jackpot symbols. if you match three you will win one of the four jackpots.
The Incredible Hulk audio and graphics
While this title isn’t based on the film, the opening animations are done so well you would think it was. You realise this isn’t the case when there’s no actor’s or clips from the film but the graphics are superb and pay homage to the comic many have become so fond of.
The audio is where we are let down – there isn’t much happening other than a mysterious soundtrack and eery audio effects. These sounds are then ruined by the mechanical sound of the reels spinning and stopping, but you can mute this via the audio icon.
Our thoughts of Playtech’s The Incredible Hulk
GUIDE: Online slots reviews
While we don’t claim to be Marvel fiends, we do enjoy the huge range of films as a result of the comic books. We also appreciate graphics and therefore know when a pokie does a comic justice – we believe this title from Playtech does.
With a minimum bet of $0.01 available, which still gives you the chance to win a progressive jackpot of up to six figures, we have to say this pokie is worth your time. While we aren’t greeted to Mark Ruffalo, true fans of the comic will prefer the cartoon graphics anyway.
The Expanding Wild is another great addition – two free Re-Spins with Wilds attached keeps our bank balance topped up while we spin to trigger the Bonus features. Our favourite was the Smash Bonus due to the interactive option of making the Hulk throw a fire hydrant.
