Marvel Themed Slots

The Story Behind The Disappearance of Marvel Slots

If you are a Marvel comic fan, or just a nostalgic slots lover searching for superhero themed slots like The Incredible Hulk, The Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor or Spiderman, you may be sad to know that these branded slots games are no longer available since 2017.

Disney acquired Marvel in 2009 and discontinued any licensing agreements which elapsed in order to disassociate themselves with any gambling ties and retain their reputation as a “family entertainment business”. But that is not the end of the story for Marvel Slots…

How “Age of the Gods™” slot series came to be

Playtech.com, the world’s largest supplier of online gaming software, took the business decision to re-skin their existing marvel themed games into their own in-house brand known as “ Age of the Gods™”. This is how their “Age of the Gods Slots Series” came to be.

So for example, The Avengers rebranded to Age of the Gods and Fantastic Four re-branded to Age of the Gods: Furious Four, and the Iron Man 2 title becoming “the Age of the Gods: King of Olympus”. As their own brands gained popularity Playtech expanded their series into the live casino games and Bingo verticals with Age of the Gods™ Roulette and Age of the Gods Bingo.

Athena is known as the goddess of war and wisdom and is usually depicted with an owl. She represents intelligence, skill, peace, warfare, battle strategy and arts.
