Marvel Roulette is the super hero themed bonus roulette game from Playtech and playable at Sky Casino. Marvel Roulette uses the same standard roulette wheel as many traditional roulette games, and follows the betting patterns, layout and odds of European Roulette. The Marvel Roulette bonus position is nestled between the zero and 32 which is unique amongst bonus roulette games which often house the bonus position between the numbers 5 and 10.
Marvel Roulette pays the same odds as traditional roulette, with straight up numbers paying at 35/1 and outside bets paying double the winning stakes on 50/50 bets. To make betting easier, Marvel Roulette uses a racetrack grid at the side of the wheel for neighbours and French betting, as well as the ability to save up to four of your favourite bets in the same way as Playetechs other roulette game Newar Roulette does. The favourite betting options make the game easy to play, whilst still maintaining a speed of play you may prefer.
The main reason to play Marvel Roulette is for the Marvel Bonus which is triggered by landing a successful bet on the Marvel position on the roulette wheel. The odds of landing on this slot are 38/1 which is often around the hit rate for a feature on many slot machines, so the bonus is fair in that regard.
The Marvel Roulette bonus consists of a slot machine with three reels. Your stake is carried over from the roulette game, so the larger you bet on the Marvel position on the roulette wheel, the larger the potential winnings in the bonus game. The bonus game awards three spins on the slot machine, and you are guaranteed at least one winner. Simply match three symbols to win the corresponding value, with the various Marvel symbols awarding various wins.
The game ends when all three spins have been used, you will then be returned to the standard Marvel Roulette game with your bonus winnings banked.
The Marvel Roulette jackpot game is linked with all the Marvel slot machines from Playtech, across all Playtech casinos. This may seem confusing as first as this is a roulette game, however it will share the same jackpot as the Spiderman slot machine and others. This allows for the jackpot to increase at a considerable speed to often make for a life changing amount.
The jackpot is triggered randomly, and can occur on any spin, winner or loser. The odds of triggering the Marvel Jackpot game increase the larger your stake, so Marvel Roulette is a great way to play at larger stakes rather than on a slot machine where your odds may be slightly less.
Once active, the Marvel Jackpot guarantees to pay one of four progressive wins; Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power.
The lowest jackpot; Power starts off at £50 and as such is the most commonly awarded. The largest progressive jackpot; Ultimate Power has a minimum value of £100,000 and increases rapidly to several hundreds of thousands.
Out of all of the Marvel Jackpot games, I believe Marvel Roulette offers the fairest chance of awarding the Marvel Jackpot feature.
Roulette can be played at high stakes and offers betting patterns that allow you to stay close to even, this may then open up greater chances of playing the Marvel Jackpot game on £100 stake, rather than playing Hulk slot machine on £100 stake for example.
