Put the Dark Knight’s cape and cowl on and crack cases the GCPD can’t in Nextgen’s great Batman online slot. Based on the iconic comic book character, Batman gives you a chance to walk the streets of Gotham at night and take out criminals, just like Batman does. Comic book characters are incredibly popular right now thanks to the influx of comic book movies. They’ve entered every nook and cranny of our lives, making a splash on the online gaming scene as well.
Visually, it’s one of the most impressive slots we’ve seen. The symbols and whole setting look straight like they’ve been ripped out of a comic book. Most likely drawn by the legendary Jim Lee, everything in this slot looks perfect. Set against the background of a rainy night in the dark and brooding Gotham, the slot looks on-par with many great video games.
Batman’s RTP is 95.2% which is close to the industry standard. With 50 betways and a maximum win of 200,000 coins, it’s every Indian player’s dream come true.
Nextgen’s Batman slot is a game with 5 reels and 4 rows instead of the industry-standard three. There are 50 betways and bet sizes that range between €0.50 and €50. Your goal in this game is to help capture The Joker. Commissioner Gordon is here to help and there’s a wide array of Bat-gadgets as well.
The symbols are inspired by the Batman mythos, meaning you can expect Gordon, The Joker, and all those cool gadgets the Dark Knight relies on to fight crime. Land 5 Joker symbols on the reels and you’ll get a prize worth 2,000 coins. The other symbols pay less – for example, Batman’s trusty ally Commissioner Gordon pays 200 coins for five-of-a-kind.
The Caped Crusader itself is the wild in the Batman online slot. Whenever you land it, there’s a cool animation with bats flying around Batman, transforming all other symbols apart from the scattered Batman logo.
The Bonus Bet in the base game makes things even more exciting. It can be activated by paying 10 extra coins, enabling access to the Descent Into Madness feature. As soon as you activate the bonus bet, you also get an extra Batman symbol on reels 2, 3, and 4 at random which increases your chance at landing big wins.
There are two special features in the Batman slots. Land Commissioner Gordon on reel 1 and the Bat-symbol on reel 5 or vice-versa to trigger the Batman respins. After the game pays winning combos, reels 2, 3, and 4 will turn into stacked wilds that are held in place for the duration of the 3 respins. All wins are doubled during this feature, which means exciting payouts. It’s a one-time-only feature that can’t be retriggered.
The real adventure starts with the Descent Into Madness feature. As we already mentioned, this special feature is only available when the bonus bet is activated. It is triggered when you get three Bat-symbols on the reels from the left to the right and you get the chance to be the Batman. In this exciting action sequence, you must target escaped Arkham inmates with a Batarang.
Clear them all to “dance” with The Joker himself. Hit Batman’s nemesis with the Batarang three times to defeat him and lay waste to his surely diabolical plans. Of course, you’ll be nicely rewarded for it, scoring a prize worth 100 times your stake.
We loved the time spent on Nextgen’s amazing Batman slot. Playable across a range of mobile devices, you can take this exciting action game with you wherever you go. The slot got impressive graphics and soundtrack as well as excellent gameplay. The bonus bet keeps things interesting in the base game, while the two special features give you a chance to foil Joker’s plans.
All in all, it’s a slot that puts you in the cape and cowl of the Dark Knight, which, we must all agree, has been our dream since we were kids.
