“We’re mad for this green-eyed monster. The Hulk ain’t just great. He’s Incredible.”
If mere revenge is simply not enough, perhaps it’s time you teamed up with Marvel’s angriest mutated scientist and went for ultimate retribution. Hulk – Ultimate Revenge is a scarily-named, but rather fab, online slot from software developers Cryptologic.
The five reel, 25 payline game, is the second online slot from Cryptologic dedicated to the Incredible Hulk. The game’s theme combines elements from all the character’s franchises, including the comic strip, the television show, and – of course – the movies.
Cryptologic’s online slots are some of the best in the business and Hulk – Ultimate Revenge is no exception. The gameplay is fun, the branding is on the money, and the bonus round is worth holding out for.
The Hulk’s eye symbol is the game’s wild reel, substituting for all symbols except the scatter. It is also the game’s jackpot line. Get five angry, green, eyes lined up and you win 5,000 times your line bet. That could be as much as £/€/$25,000.
The Banner Bonus
The game’s scatter symbol and bonus trigger is an explosion. Get three or more of these anywhere on the screen and the game’s bonus round roars into life. Now… David Banner may once have said ‘you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry’. However, the bonus round clearly proves that the scientist had been hitting the gamma rays a bit too hard. We LOVE him when he’s angry in this bonus round. It’s what makes him throws things at helicopters – winning you bonus games and multipliers.
When the bonus round kicks off, you have to first select what you want the Incredible Hulk to use as a weapon. You then pick what one of the five unlucky helicopters you want the Hulk to target. He throws the object (car, phone box, motorbike, etc) and the helicopter is destroyed to reveal a number of free plays and a multiplier (for example: 20 free spins and 2x multiplier).
You can then choose to either except this or throw something else. I always go for another throw because it’s pretty funny. You have to accept the second selection. The game then dishes out the free spins with the selected multiplier. You can retrigger the bonus within the free spins.
I love the Hulk. So, it goes without saying that this game floats my boat and knocks my chopper out of the sky. There is no progressive to play for but it’s fun and the bonus round is a laugh. More Cryptologic class for the online slots connoisseur.
This game is not really happening for me. I am not such a big fan of the comic book franchises and I don’t think the Hulk was so incredible that he merited another outing. Having said that: this game is clearly more associated with the movie than the previous game which was very comic book orientated.
I think the main problem for me was that I failed to get the bonus round before my money ran out. In fact, I am angry… very, very angry….grrrrrrrAAAARRRRRRRRR!!
