First he was known as the caped crusader, more recently ‘’, whilst to his friends he is known as Bruce Wayne. Yes, you guessed it, we are talking about Batman who has stepped right off the big screen onto his own Cryptologic slot. This five reel, 50 pay line slot offers a mouthwatering combination of hand drawn graphics, animation, sound and features to create one of the most interesting slots around - all without a Kablaam, biff or zonk!
Batman Slot Theme
Crypto have gone with old school graphics combined with the darker side of batman in this slot, there is no cheesiness but only a deep seated need to save Gotham City from the evil genius that is the Joker (okay that was a bit cheesy).
The slot is officially licensed by DC Comics, so the reels are full of authentic graphics. They include Batmobile symbols, Commissioner Gordon, The Joker, Batman, his searchlight, the Batbike, grappling hooks, batterangs and much more. Many of these flash when a win spins in, whilst more important symbols such as Wilds and scatters are fully animated.
The buttons, font and sound effects have all been tweaked to provide an authentic experience. Menacing music plays with every win, including a traditional blare of music when the wild batman symbol contributes to a win.
Coin values begin at just 0.01 ranging up to 20 per spin (various currencies), this gives a wider choice for gamblers making it suitable for all price ranges. You can select from 1 to 50 pay lines or hit the bonus bet to play 60 combinations with the chance of starting an additional bonus feature. This means the smallest stake per spin is 0.01 whilst the maximum is 1000, or 1200 if the bonus bet is activated (the background changes yellow when in this mode).
Batman Slot Features
Batman takes on the responsibility of playing the Wild symbol, this Wild can substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter symbol and jackpot symbol.
The scatter symbol is clearly marked ‘BONUS’; roll in three or more of these from left to right to start the cut sequence and bonus round. During this round you take out the Jokers’ goons before facing him directly, take one of your two chances to strike it lucky and save the people of Gotham ;-).
Batman is well thought out, it could’t have been done any better as it mixes old with new beautifully. Good job Crypto, good job.
How to play Batman
Cryptologic managed to sweet talk the guys at DC Comics into letting them create this 5 reel, 50 pay line slot, and boy have they done them proud. The designers have worked with authentic graphics and sound effects to create a killer slot with one of the best features we have seen in a while.
