Batman Online Slots Overview
This is the kind of company even Bruce Wayne himself dreams about: in just ten years since its inception, Amaya has become the leading name in online slots and casino play, with billion-dollar purchases putting it at the forefront of the market in several fields. Amaya also holds the licence for all DC Comic characters, ensuring that Batman and his entire entourage and rogues gallery, Justice League, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, among others, can all appear in their own, quality, games.
Summon the Bat. Find the Joker.
There are 8 lower valued symbols on each of the 5 reels, themed around Batman and the Joker, ranging from the Batmobile and the Bat-signal to the Joker’s signature squirting flower and calling card. The artwork is redolent of Batman as he appeared in the early 90’s graphic novels, prior to the Tim Burton and more recent Christopher Nolan re-imaginings of the characters. The appearance of the Joker heralds the highest payout, while Commissioner Gordon is the second most valuable symbol. The Dark Knight himself is the Wild card, appearing as the face of Justice on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels, and substituting for all except the Scatter symbols, which trigger the Re-spin feature. Land on the Batman and Commissioner Gordon on Reels 1 and 5, and the remaining reels will re-spin, normally earning a decent payout in the process.
Activating this feature will change the background art to show Gotham by day: this raises the number of lines being played to maximum, and increases the total bets to 60, unlocking an extra bonus feature.
If you should see three or more Scatter symbols while the Bonus Bet is in play, this will activate the Descent into Madness Bonus Feature. This is a mini game, where Batman hunts down inmates of Arkham Asylum: any that you hit with a baterang will equal rewards. Capturing the green haired Joker will reward you with a multiplier of up to 100x the original bet, and there are two chances to do this.
Sights and Sounds of Gotham City
The Batman screen is a little busy to look at, but has all of the necessary information clearly laid out before you, and the symbols themselves are clear and well rendered. Hitting “Spin” strikes a dramatic chord, after which the reels turn in silence, stopping with a sound as of leathery wings. Fans of the graphic novels and the more recent movies and series based on these, will definitely enjoy this homage to the Dark Knight himself. The game offers the chance to bet anything from 1c per line to a maximum 20 credit bet over 50 lines, and anything in between, ensuring that any level of player is catered for: in addition, there is the option of playing risk-free, for virtual credits, although this is of course also a reward-free option. This game is definitely one of Amaya’s flagship titles, and most lucrative licenses: aficionados of the genre should make a point of checking it out.
