Black Widow Slot Machine
There are numerous slots based on comic book characters. Superman, Spiderman, Batman, the Flash, Wonder Woman and numerous others have all featured in their own slot machines. However, this game is not based on poisonous spiders nor on the Marvel superhero of the same name – instead it has a darker and more sinister feel. The idea is that the beautiful woman character is capturing unwitting men with her charms, and then poisoning them. I like this slot, which has a high quality feel to it. The feeling is more of dark humor and quality than of murder.
You’ll enjoy the background music, which got me tapping my toes. It is a slow, almost jazzy soundtrack with the bass tones driving the tune. Visually, there is a picture frame around the reels, and colorful stacks of symbols. The ‘super stacks’ system used on this slot means you’ll often have entire reels covered by the same symbol. I had the first 4 reels covered one time for a big win, though have yet to have all 5. This would mean that all of the 40 win lines are 5-of a kind, giving you a potentially huge pay-out.
One thing that confused me at first on this slot is the poison bottle symbols which trigger the bonus game. It says above the reels that you need to have 9 for the feature, only I was not seeing any of them for a long while. This turns out to be normal. The game does not give you one or two, either you get all 9 on the middle 3 reels – or you hardly see them at all. Fortunately, they are well worth waiting for.
