We have mentioned that NextGen Gaming had acquired the license to DC characters recently, and they have wasted no time in developing further SC superhero themed slots. Superman is an example of what they can do when they put their minds to it. This video slot is based on the comic book version of Superman, and it contains 5 reels and 50 paylines of action. Superman offers up a costly wagering range which stems from 50p up to £100 per spin, although bonus bets can see the stakes altered from 60p up to £120 per spin. Superman’s non-progressive jackpot soars to a total of 10,000 coins in all.
Superman himself takes up the mantle as the slot’s wild symbol. He can substitute for all other symbols in the game, aside from other special symbols. He is also the best-paying symbol in the game and can double the value of all wins in which he appears.
Should Superman pop up on three reels at once, a free spins bonus will be triggered. In this feature, 10 free spins will be paid out, and there are expanded Superman wilds on the reels, with a 5x multiplier present, too.
Should you use the bonus bet, a few additional options become available in this bonus round. Personally, you can win the same amount in the additional bonus as you can in the free spins feature, so it’s not necessary to have.
With the bonus bet triggered, once the bonus begins, a Save the World feature is playable. In this, Superman must choose one of three doors. If you find Kryptonite, the bonus ends. Should you find hostages or Lex Luther, you can save them/fight them and pocket prizes worth up to 100x your total bet.
Superman is a decent slot, but players won’t like the idea of having to wager a bit extra just for another feature. That’s a little bit naughty, and since it isn’t really any different from any of the other features in terms of what you can win, why would you bother wagering extra for it?
