Playtech launched their Marvel slots in 2009 with Iron Man and the Hulk. In 2010 they added a range of other games and launched the Marvel Jackpot Network which has four progressives starting at €50, €500, €5000 and €100,000.
Marvel Jackpot Slots
Marvel characters have been popular in a wide variety of media formats from comic books to films. They have now made the move to slot machines at both Cryptologic and Playtech online casinos. All of the popular characters are covered from the Hulk to Iron Man to the X-Men.
While many of the game titles are the same for both of the software providers the actual games are totally different. The Cryptologic Marvel games have a more comic book feel while the Playtech games are based on the more recent movies. The jackpot networks are also independent with each software provider offering different jackpots.

Marvel Jackpots - Playtech Vs Cryptologic
There are two distinct jackpot networks for the Marvel slots with Cryptologic and Playtech offering both different games and jackpots. The differences in the jackpot networks are quite large with the Playtech games offering much bigger jackpots.
The Playtech games have a four tier jackpot link with Power, Super Power, Extra Power and Ultimate Power jackpots that start at €50, €500, €5000 and €100,00 respectively. The lower jackpots are hit multiple times per day while the top Ultimate Jackpot is hit a lot less. The Ultimate Power jackpot has been over a $1,000,000 at times.
On the other side the Cryptologic jackpots are much smaller with three tiers instead of four. The jackpots are Hero, Super Hero and Marvel Hero that start at $50, $500 and $5,000 respectively. The lower jackpots hit daily while the Marvel Hero is won every couple of days. The average for the top award is around $9,000.
The way that the jackpots are won also differs between the software providers. The Cryptologic games award the jackpots instantly at the end of any winning spin. The Playtech games take things a step further and randomly award a pick a box feature where you have to match three logos to win one of the four progressives.
