Super X Review
Developer Pragmatic Play took one of its earlier releases titled Super 7 to create a beefed-up version named Super X. Apart from having a similar name and a friendly jazzy vibe, the two online slots deliver different playing experiences.
It now remains to be seen whether this recipe will prove successful, but keeping in mind the developer’s previous track record, there’s a lot we can look forward to.
- High variance with a top payout of 5,000x the bet
- Twenty fixed paylines
- The game comes with the X Bet Respins feature, free spins, and the Super Spin Ante Bet
Super X centres around a unique bet multiplier feature, available through free spins and respins. It also includes the Super Spin Ante bet feature. Slot enthusiasts are in for plenty of action, where every spin can be a bonus of its own.
In terms of prizes on offer, the top payout is worth 5,000 times the bet. That’s $500,000 when converted to hard currency. A befitting reward for tackling the slot’s high volatility.
Theme, Graphics and Sounds
The theme is a bit ambitious, based around money, gold, casino chips and jewels. It’s all more or less connected to wealth.
Pragmatic Plays describes the game’s visuals as ’punchy’, which is a suitable adjective for a screen filled with bright colours and gold coins. Nothing original, but more than enough to provide hours of entertainment.
Super X is played on a standard five-reel, three-row grid with a total of twenty fixed paylines.
The reels are populated with low-paying red, purple, green, and blue poker chips, coins, dollar bills, diamonds, gold bars and crowns as the high pays.
Three or more matching symbols form a winning combination, delivering payouts ranging from 2.5 to twenty times your stake for five across a line.
The X symbols can appear only on reel 1, and whenever that happens, a respin is awarded. The triggering icons stay in their position, with only blanks or numbers from 0 to 9 landing on the remaining reels.
Once the spin ends, every row with an X on it creates a bet multiplier made up of the numbers next to it. All payouts from different rows are added after the respinning stops.
The Super Spin Ante Bet can be triggered in the base game. Doing so will increase the cost of a spin by ten times. Whenever this option is activated, a spin will be played like a respin, meaning only X symbols, blanks, and numbers appear on the reels.
Super X Free Spins
Landing three golden dice Scatters unlocks the free spins round, awarding five spins. Only X symbols, blanks and numbers appear during the bonus.
All three positions on reel 1 have X symbols, with blanks and numbers landing on the remaining reels to create bet multipliers. If only blanks appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5, three extra spins are added to the count.
Where To Play Super X?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
Super X has two RTP values. The default payout percentage is 96.51%, dropping to 96.48% when the Super Ante Bet option is activated.
Wagering starts at $0.20, while the maximum stake is $100 per spin.
The slot’s top payout is 5,000 times your stake. It’s a solid reward for a game boasting high volatility. However, bear in mind it won’t be easy to claim such a staggering prize.
Although Super X follows on from Super 7, the two games offer different maths and gameplay. If you liked Super 7, don’t expect the same experience.
Super X is more volatile, and much bigger prizes while building your bet multipliers will start as soon as the reels begin to spin. Payouts go up to 5,000x the bet, which sounds appealing.
You won’t enjoy the game’s scenery, but you won’t lack the excitement, that’s for sure. We rate it 3 out of 5 stars.
