The basic aim of playing Man of Steel online slot is to spin the reels and match symbols on the paylines. The game also boasts several special features that can boost your winnings. This popular slot is based on the blockbuster Superman Movie – Man of Steel.
How to Play:
A welcome screen will appear when the game is loaded for the first time. It will display information on the slot’s special features. Press Start to go to the reels.
Check ‘Do Not Show This Next Time’ if you would like to skip the welcome screen the next time you load the game.
Note: The slot is played with 25 fixed paylines. Therefore, the Total Bet is calculated as Line Bet x 25.
Note: When a spin has been completed, winning combinations (if any) will be highlighted on screen. The total win will be shown in the Win Field.
Note: A full list of payouts can be accessed by clicking Info. All payouts are multiplied by the Line Bet.
Click the Info button located on the bottom left of the screen to launch the Man of Steel Info Pages, which include the Paytable and information on the various special features. You can use the arrows on the bottom right of the screen to move through the pages, or use the tabs on the top of the screen to skip to a specific section. You can exit the Info Pages by clicking on Back To Reels. A brief overview of the Info Pages is provided below:
The main game is played with 25 fixed paylines. The objective of the game is to spin the reels and land groups of matching symbols on these paylines, working left to right across the reels.
Please note that there is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the bet on each payline. It is used to calculate Line Wins (matching symbols on a payline). The Total Bet is equal to 25 x Line Bet. It is the total cost of one spin on Man of Steel slot.
Complete payout information can be found on the various Paytables, which are accessed via the Info button. All listed payouts are multiplied by the Line Bet.
A Line Win consists of a group of matching symbols, working left to right in a chain across the reels. Only matching combinations on paylines will pay out as Line Wins.
In the event of two or more possible winning combinations on the same payline, you will be paid out for the highest value combination only.
There are two types of Wild Symbols used in the main game – Superman Wild and General Zod Wild Symbols. Both symbols will substitute for any other symbols to make the best paying combination on a payline.
The Wild Symbols will also act as Shifting Wild Symbols. This means that with the next spin they will shift one position to the right or left, then a further position on the next spin and so on. The Superman Wild Symbol will shift to the right. The General Zod Wild Symbol will shift to the left.
For example, if a Superman Wild Symbol lands on Reel 3 it will move to Reel 4 for the next spin, followed by Reel 5 for the spin after that. It will disappear with the subsequent spin.
You will be awarded Battle for Earth Free Games if Superman and General Zod ‘collide’ by shifting against each other on the same row. This will be described in greater detail below.
There are three Bonus Symbols used in Man of Steel:
Both symbols can appear on Reel 5 only. If either symbol falls on Reel 5 you will be awarded Krypton Free Games or Engine of Earth Bonus respectively.
Note: If one of the Bonus Symbols is close to falling on Reel 5, the reel will light up and the spinning of the reel will noticeably slow down.
Engine of Earth Bonus:
The Engine of Earth Bonus will start automatically when the Bonus Symbol lands on Reel 5. The Symbol will ‘power up’ and scatter up to seven Wild Symbols across the reels. Winning combinations will then be calculated with the new Wild Symbols in place.
Krypton Free Games:
Krypton Free Games are awarded when the Krypton Symbol falls anywhere on Reel 5. Press Click To Start (replaces Spin) to begin. A message will then appear on screen. It details some of the special features of Krypton Free Games. Press Ok to start Free Games.
The Free Games are played on an enhanced reel set. It features an extra row, different symbols and uses 50 paylines.
You will be initially awarded 7 Free Games. Before the Free Games begin, up to 10 Wild Symbols are scattered on the reels. These will be held for the duration of Free Games.
Free Games will start playing through automatically. Wins are accumulated and shown on the top right of the screen.
The Krypton Free Games Symbol can appear on Reel 5 more frequently than the main game. If it falls on Reel 5 you will be awarded an extra 7 Free Games. When this occurs, the Wild Symbols will be shuffled on to new positions and held in place until Free Games have finished, or a new set of Free Games are awarded.
When all Free Games have been completed, a summary screen will detail the total win from the feature. Press Continue to return to the main game.
Battle for Earth Free Games:
Battle for Earth Free Games will be awarded when a Superman Wild Symbol and General Zod Wild Symbol fall on the same row. To award the feature, the symbols must be opposite each other so that they will ‘shift’ towards each other, i.e. Superman Symbol to the left and General Zod to the right.
Press Click To Start to begin. A message will appear on screen detailing the special features of Free Games. Press Ok to start playing Free Games.
You will be initially awarded unlimited Free Games. These are played on a special reel set. Extra Wild Symbols – represented by Zod’s Warriors – can fall on the reels. Otherwise, the Free Games are played with the same symbols as the main game.
Free Games will play through automatically. The wins are accumulated and displayed on the top right of the screen.
If the Superman Wild Symbol and any of the ‘villain’ Wild Symbols fall on the same reels, they will ‘battle’ (a short clip from the Man of Steel movie will play on screen). If Superman wins the battle, extra Wild Symbols will be scattered on the reels and Free Games will continue. If one of the villains wins the battle, Scatter Symbols will be scattered on the reels and Free Games will end.
When all Free Games have been completed, a summary screen will appear detailing the total win from the feature.
Press Continue to go back to the main game.
DC Superheroes Jackpot:
Any spin in the main game can award the DC Superheroes Jackpot Game. It is awarded randomly, so no specific combination of symbols is needed to be awarded the Jackpot Game. However, your chances will be increased if you play for a higher Total Bet.
Entry to the Jackpot Game will guarantee one of four Progressive Jackpots: Mini, Minor, Major or Grand.
