Daredevil is based on the 2003 film starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, which in turn was inspired by the 1960s Marvel comic. Part of the Playtech Marvel Multi-level Progressive Jackpot Network, Daredevil has a good range of coin sizes and offers players some potentially huge payouts.
Daredevil is a 5-reel 20 payline game, just like Pharaoh’s Tomb, with a large range of coin sizes, from $0.01 up to $5.00. 10x coins can be played per payline, which means that the maximum bet can range from as little as $2.00 up to $1,000 per spin. This does, however, also mean that the range of payouts is also potentially very large indeed. Wins are multiplied by the value of the line bet and all pay left to right, except for scatter wins which pay anywhere on the reels and are multiplied by the value of the total wager.
Before each spin, place the interactive bullseye target on any of the 15 reel positions. If the Bullseye character symbol ends up under the target, you win 3x total wager (up to $3,000), plus any payline wins as well.
After each free spin, 0x, 1x, 2x or 3x symbols randomly turn into wilds, which substitute for all symbols (except the scatter). Any scatter wins are paid before symbols are turned into wilds. Further free spins can be triggered during the feature.
Symbols in the game are based on the film’s characters, such as Daredevil, Elektra, Bullseye and Kingpin (drawings, rather than photos). These animate after a win, and the overall colour scheme and design suits the noir style of the film. However, there is no soundtrack during base play, while the sound effects are disappointingly generic and not especially relevant to the game, although there is some exciting, lively music during the 10x free spin feature. For similar graphics and sounds also see Hitman’s pokie game.
Daredevil is a medium volatility game with a payout percentage of 94.9%, and is also potentially extremely lucrative in terms of its own payouts and because it’s part of the Marvel Multi-level Progressive Jackpot Network. The largest jackpot available within the game is $250,000 for hitting 5x Daredevil wild symbols when playing the maximum coin size and number. Hitting 4x Daredevil wild symbols or 5x DD logo symbols lands a potential $100,000 jackpot (when playing the max).
Daredevil is also part of the Marvel Multi-level Progressive Jackpot Network, which means players can, at any time, win one of four randomly triggered jackpots. Any spin, for any amount, can trigger the jackpot game, although the larger the size of your bet, the greater the potential prize you can win.
The jackpot game consists of 20 squares (arranged in a 4 x 5 grid), each of which conceals a jackpot symbol. When three identical symbols are matched, you are awarded that prize. The potential size of each of the four jackpot levels is unlimited, although each has a minimum value: Ultimate Power Jackpot—$100,000; Super Power Jackpot—$10,000; Extra Power Jackpot—$100; Power Jackpot—$50. To date, the record payout in the Ultimate Power Jackpot is $1.36 million.
The Interactive Bullseye Feature is one of this game’s most innovative elements, as are the random wilds during the 10x free spin feature, and both add an additional layer of complexity and engagement to the game.
