There have been several Batman themed slots from various developers over the years. This Batman slot is NextGen Gaming’s take on the superhero. The Batman is based on the comic book rather than the movies and features 5 reels and 50 paylines for you to bet on. By adjusting coin values, players can choose coin values of 1p up to £2 in all, and wager anything from 50p up to £100 a spin. The new Batman slot comes with a non-progressive jackpot worth 5,000 coins in all.
Batman can appear on the second, third, and fourth reels of the slot. When the symbol does appear, it can substitute for all other icons, save for scattered logo, and bonus logo symbols. These symbols can double whatever you have won in the base game with your winning combination.
When Commissioner Gordon appears on the first reel, and the Bat-Signal appears on the fifth reel, players can trigger a Batman re-spins feature. In this feature, stacked wilds can show up on the second, third, and fourth reels of the game, and will be held throughout the bonus. All wins with this feature are also doubled.
Scatter icons take up the mantle as the best paying symbols in this slot. They can offer you a non-progressive prize worth 5,000 coins if 5 appear on any active line.
A second bonus icon also makes an appearance in this slot. If you can land the Batman bonus symbol on the reels of the slot, you could trigger a Descent into Madness feature. In this bonus, players will be taken to a prison where they must strike down the Joker’s chums with a Batarang, before dealing with The Joker himself. Doing so can see players win up to 100x their total bet in.
Is NextGen Gaming’s Batman-themed video slot as good as Microgaming’s Dark Knight slot? Of course, not. How could anything be? However, that slot has long since gone, and aside from two Playtech powered Batman slots (based on the television series), this game is about as close to the best Batman slot as you’re going to get.
