Ghost Rider is one of Playtech’s Marvel series online slots games. It is based on the Hollywood film adaptation of the Marvel comic of the same name. The story is based on Johnny Blaze, the tormented stunt rider who sells his soul to save another. The symbols incorporate the theme and display elements of the film including a flaming skull, Mephisto the demon, the Ghost Rider, the film’s logo, bibles, scrolls and more. The lower valued symbols are the standard higher valued playing cards.
The game is played on five reels and has twenty different pay lines that can be individually bet on. The game is involved in the Marvel progressive jackpot which is unique to the series and consists of a four level structure. The four levels include the power jackpot, extra power, super power and the ultimate power jackpot. The jackpot can be activated at random throughout the game regardless of whether winning combinations are spun. An additional screen displaying a four by five box setup will appear and three matching symbols need to be uncovered in order to win the corresponding progressive jackpot prize.
Ghost Rider Wilds and Scatters
The flaming skulls are the wild symbols and only land on the second, third and fourth reels. They help create winning combinations by acting as substitutes for any of the other paying symbols apart from the bonus or scatter symbols. The wild will be used to create the best possible combination if multiple wins are possible. The wild symbols become expanding wilds during the Ghost Rider online slots free spins bonus round.
When two or more of the Ghost Rider logo scatter symbols land on the reels a winning amount multiplied by the total bet is awarded. Three, four or five of the scatters appearing will trigger the online slots free spins bonus round. A total of ten free spins are awarded with a 3x multiplier on any free spins win. An additional set of ten free spins can be re triggered if another three or more scatter symbols appear on the reels. There is no limit to the amount of times the free spins can be re triggered.
The scatters don’t need to land in consecutive order to pay or trigger the free spins, they can appear in any position on the reels. The ghost hunt bonus game cannot be activated during any free spin but wild symbols become expanding. This means they cover an entire reel when a winning combination is formed with the use of a wild. Once the entire reel is covered in wilds, any win produced will be paid.
The Ghost Hunt Bonus Game
The Ghost Rider symbol activates the bonus game and needs to land on the third reel first to activate the reel. The reel will remain activated for further spins as long as the bet amount does not change. As the featured character lands on the other four reels they each activate.
When all five reels have been activated the Ghost Hunt bonus game will begin. Here the Ghost Rider will speed along a highway capturing ghosts along the way. Each ghost is worth a multiplier with three being worth 0x. Essentially seven ghosts will possibly pay as the game only ends after a total of ten attempts.
