Playtech have announced that they will soon be releasing the latest instalment in their DC Super Heroes Jackpot series, The Dark Knight.Based on the immensely popular Batman movie of the same name, the slot goes into direct competition with Microgaming, who already have a Dark Knight slot in their collection.So, how will Playtech’s offering stand out?
How it looks
Using images and cut scenes from the movie itself, and a stunning, dark and gloomy background that perfectly suits the source material, The Dark Knight is an exceptionally good-looking slot game.With five reels and 50 paylines, this slot is linked to the DC Super Heroes Jackpot Network, alongside the likes of Justice League, Batman Begins, Man of Steel, and Superman.Characters from the movie appear on the reels alongside The Dark Knight logo, which acts as the wild symbol and will replace for all but the scatter symbol. Playing card symbols represent the lower values.
There are two different Free Spins features here, firstly The Dark Knight Free Games Bonus, which triggers when bonus symbols land on the last two reels.Land bonus symbols on the second, third, fourth, and fifth reel and you’ll enter the Gotham City Free Games Bonus where the prizes are even bigger.If you manage to trigger the Batman Respins Feature or the Joker Respins Feature, things get really interesting.Both features offer a respin and the chance to trigger one of the four progressive jackpots, the Mini, the Minor, the Major, and the Grand Jackpot, the latter of which can be millions.An exciting slot, joining up with a network that is as enticing for its games as its progressive jackpots, Playtech’s The Dark Knight is going to be well worth a few spins once it’s released.
