Taking place in the city of Gotham, this slot, based on the comic DC book rather than the Batman film, is a CryptoLogic’s creation of 50 paying lines and 5 reels. At the time the slot was made, CryptoLogic worked with NextGen group which is why players can see their logo together with the NYX one at the start of the game. However, in 2012, CL became a part of WagerLogic.
Though Batman slot is based on the comics, being familiar with the new Bat movies is also enough for recognizing all the machine’s elements. Here, you’ll find the notorious villain, Joker, policeman Gordon, and the superhero Batman along with his Batmobile. The machine is full of special effects, sounds, animations, and moving symbols that make it look more than a slot especially when you are playing the featured bonus game. Moreover, when activating the ‘Bonus Bet’, all the Gotham’s lights turn, on and the whole atmosphere changes. This slot is similar to The Punisher.
Basic Info about the Slot
- All wins are counted from left to right in a consecutive row on the 5 reels.
- Return-To-Player is 95.2%.
- Min coin size is 0.01, and the max is 2.00, leading to the max total bet of 100.00 (50 lines x 2.00).
- Users can check the arrangement of paying lines at the last page of the ‘Info’ filter.
- AutoPlay is available for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 50 or 100 automatically turned reels.
- Not all the bonus features can be used in a regular round. For this, you need to activate the ‘Bonus Bet’ button.
- The highest paying (regular) icon is the Joker one – 5 of them on a winning line will result in a 2000 coin price.
This game boasts with its bonuses; the only additions it misses are multiplier symbols and regular free spins:
- Wild: The main slot’s feature, Batman, is a wild. It acts as a substitute symbol but can also act as a stacked wild that stays held throughout the re-spin;
- Bonus Bet: This feature is activated by clicking on the same-called button. Now, the gameplay changes a bit – when the bet is on, up to 20 extra coins are added to your total stake. Moreover, the 2 bonus features, ‘Descent into Madness’, as well as the additional Batman symbol on the 2nd 3rd and 4th reel, are triggered only when the button is active. You can turn it on and off at any time during the play;
- Re-Spin: The feature is triggered only if the policeman Gordon is found on the reel number one and the Batman’s Signal on the reel number five, and vice versa. This is when the stacked Batman wild shows up, and all the winnings are doubled. Re-spins can be triggered again during the play;
- Descent into Madness: This round is shown in a new screen and is activated when the scatter symbol appears on the first, second and third reel. The gameplay is simple; by using the Batman Boomerang, players will try to defeat the hostile forces of Arkham, and if they do so, a chance to take down the Joker will appear, which can result in a big cashout;
- Gamble Option: Here, you can gamble not only by guessing the colors of cards but their signs too. If you are right about the card’s color, the winnings you gambled will be doubled. However, if you guess the sign, which is riskier, the winning amount will be quadrupled. Don’t forget that the chances to win, as well as to lose it all, are the same.
Values of Symbols
The two different-colored Batman’s icons that stand for ‘bonus’ and ‘scatter’ bring the win of 5000 coins (plus the bonus features) if 5 are landed when the stake is set on max. Those two symbols, along with the Joker, Gordon and Bat motorcycle or car, bring the price even if only the same two are landed, while the pistol, Bat signal, flower and Joker’s card need to be hit at least three times on the reels in order to give benefit.
