Blade slot review
The Blade comic book series has been popular with fans of the Marvel Comics since the vampire hunter made his first appearance in July 1973 in a comic called The Tomb of Dracula. Thanks to a deal Playtech agreed with Marvel Comics, Blade now makes the transition to online slot gaming, along with Fantastic Four and the hell-raising Ghost Rider.
This Blade slot is based on the comic book series as opposed to the hit movie franchise starring Wesley Snipes.
On the Reels...
It is a 5-reel, 20-payline slot title that has all of the iconic imagery from the comic book series included as symbols such as a Female Vampire, Machine Gun, Silver Spikes, Bladerangs and EDTA Darts.
Blade's Free Spins
The main bonus feature in the game is the Blade Free Spins Bonus. This is triggered when you hit three or more Blade Logo scatter symbols across the reels.
You are initially awarded with 15 free spins when the feature is triggered with a growing multiplier that begins at a value of 2x and increases by a value of 1x up to a multiplier value of 5x after every winning combination. However, if a player does not win on a free spin then the multiplier value decreases by 1x.
It is possible to re-trigger the free spins in the Blade Free Spins Bonus by hitting three or more Blade Logo scatter symbols across the reels during the free spins. The Blade Logo scatter symbols also act as a Wild during the Blade Free Spins Bonus increasing the potential of a big win during the free spins.
Extra Wins With Blade Split
Another intriguing feature included in Blade is the Blade Split feature. The Blade Split symbol only appears on the fifth reel and when it does appear the last symbol in a winning combination on that spin splits in two and effectively becomes two separate symbols to increase the win amount.
Hit a Marvel Progressive Jackpot
Blade is also included in the Marvel Multi-Level Progressive Jackpot which can be won by any player at any time playing on one of the Marvel slot games released by Playtech.
Blade is another Playtech Marvel comic release that plays in a similar way to the high intensity Elektra and the action-packed Iron Man 2 slot but it is very much an attractive slot in its own right. Fans of the Blade comics and movie will love it.
