Playtech superhero themed slots are back with a bang
Similarly, fans of Microgaming’s Dark Knight slot machine are already frustrated with the ending of that game. Both sets of progressives revolutionised the online casino world in their day, and the absence is going to be sorely missed. Or is it?
Playtech, it seems, may have come up with the ideal solution to appease both sets of fans. In the coming weeks, they will be unveiling a new series of slots. True, they don’t have the license to offer Marvel games any more, but they have acquired the license to the DC Universe, and soon we’ll be getting a taste of what that means.
Coming to online casinos near you shortly will be the Batman and Joker: Joker Jewels slot, which alongside the Batman and Catwoman: Cash Slot could be the beginning of a brand super hero franchise. This franchise could very well appeal to all superhero themed slot fans.
If you are concerned that you’ll miss out on progressive jackpots with the absence of Marvel’s games, and Microgaming’s Dark Knight, you needn’t worry. Playtech has taken that into consideration, which is why their new Batman and Joker: Joker Jewels slot comes with four randomly triggered progressive jackpots for you to win.
What we love
As well as the superhero theme, and the four progressives, Playtech has also included a top notch setup of additional features. There will be two wild symbols in this slot, for instance. Both the Batman logo, and the Joker smiley face symbol can substitute for wins, giving you twice the chances to win.
There is also a free spin which really is top quality. This bonus round features a multiplier metre which can rise high with one type of wild, or drop lower with another. The idea is that you will have unlimited free spins, as long as the multiplier doesn’t drop to zero.
If it does, the feature ends. Imagine the kinds of wins you can bag with this kind of free spins bonus. Lest we forget to mention that the Joker can also appear randomly on the reels and offer random wilds as you play.
What we do not like
There is only one thing which could do with mentioning. Whilst this slot is certainly equipped with top features, they aren’t quite as generous as those which can be found in this game’s sister slot – Batman and Catwoman: Cash Slot.
It’s a minor issue and not one that should really stop you giving this progressive jackpot slot a run for its money by any means.
There is really no reason why players wouldn’t want a slice of what the Batman and Joker: Joker Jewels slot has to offer.
With four progressives, quality features, cheap bets (which range from $0.25 up to $500) and a theme which is based more on the original television series than the comic books, there is so much to admire about this game.
