Few brands have had such a strong presence in modern culture as Marvel. From their origins as a comic-book company in 1930s USA, Marvel have blossomed into a multimedia empire that’s proven capable of entertaining the world with an endless array of blockbuster movies, TV hits and an impressive selection of video games.
Although Marvel’s games have been around since the 1980s, it’s only in the past decade where they’ve really delivered a series of titles that are as impressive as their range of comic book characters. From 2004’s well-respected Spiderman 2 for the Xbox, to the addictive Lego Marvel Super Heroes mobile app, it’s become clear that Marvel is showing a great amount of diversity as well as quality in their games releases.

So it’s with a certain amount of intrigue that I encountered the Marvel online roulette game at Casino.com, as it’s just one of the many of the roulette games available at the website, but it has enough comic-styled appeal to help it appeal to a new generation of gamers. First impressions reveal a pleasing selection of many of our favorite Marvel characters such as Iron Man and Wolverine who are well-rendered on both PC and mobile formats, and the use of the familiar Marvel typography should appease even the most hard-to-please Marvel fanatic.
Special mention must also be made to the wonderfully depicted roulette wheel that glimmered and gleamed with enough realism to turn even the dingiest man-cave into an opulent casino haven!

In terms of the gameplay, I’ll have to admit I’m not exactly a casino aficionado, but it proved to be easy and really quick to pick a number, spin the wheel and make a wide range of bets. What made it all so much easier was the clear gaming interface that helped keep the action fast, and the way that it allowed you to monitor your stats and save your favourite bets also meant that it’s definitely a Marvel game that I’ll keep coming back to.
However, whilst the gambling gameplay should please just about any gamer, the choice of music might be a little off-putting. Unless you like the chilled-out sounds of lounge music, you might want to hit the mute button, although then you’ll be missing out on the surprisingly realistic sound of the ball on the roulette wheel and the glamorous lady’s voice calling out the numbers. But the music is just a minor complaint, and as such Marvel Roulette manages to marry together two hugely profitable entertainment types in a great new package!
