Amaya’s Superman Slot for Marvel Comics Fans
Before Amaya Gaming brought out its latest release, Superman: Last Son of Krypton, the developer created another video slot themed after the Man of Steel, entitled simply “Superman”. This original slot is still available for players to enjoy online and remains a popular favourite.
Superman is a typical five-reel video slot with 50 fixed paylines and a top payout of 10 000 coins. This slot features wild and scatter symbols, free spins, multipliers, and an extra Superman bonus round.
A Metropolitan Setting
Amaya is sort of an aficionado of superhero-themed slots, with some well-known titles including The Flash Velocity, Batman, and Green Lantern. This experience has stood them in good stead, with careful attention to detail insuring that characters like Superman remain true to the original comic books in their new video slot setting.
As such, the Superman reels are set against the backdrop of the Metropolis skyline, with the golden orb atop the famous Daily Planet Newspaper – where Clark Kent is a reporter – clearly visible in the foreground.
Symbols in the Superman video slot include Clark’s glasses, Superman’s love interest Lois Lane, his arch nemesis Lex Luthor, the Daily Planet globe, a cluster of Kryptonite crystals, Superman saving a train, Superman saving a helicopter… you know, the usual superhero stuff.
The Superman theme is carried through the game’s soundtrack as well as the “Save the World” bonus feature, which is explained at the end of this article.
Superman is Wild
Superman himself is the first of the slot’s two bonus symbols and serves as the game’s wild. As the wild, Superman can stand in for any other symbol to complete winning combinations – with all such combinations enjoying a 2x multiplier. Superman is also the most valuable five-of-a-kind symbol in the game, yielding the top payout of 10 000 coins.
Scatter Symbol to the Rescue
The famous red “S” emblazoned on Superman’s suit plays the role of the scatter symbol in this slot. This highly valuable symbol can multiply winnings by up to 100 and triggers 10 free spins when it appears on Reels 2, 3 and 4.
In addition to this, during free spins, if a winning payline contains a wild symbol, players’ winnings are further multiplied by five.
The Special Superman Bonus Feature
In addition to the free spins bonus feature, there is another bonus feature in Superman called the “Save the World” bonus feature. This Superman bonus can be triggered randomly at any point during the game and takes players to another screen.
Superman then finds himself caught in a meteor shower and must make his way through it to choose one of three vault doors to unlock the mystery behind them. One of the doors will lead Superman to a group of hostages, whom he then frees, scoring players some credits in the process. Lex Luthor waits behind one of the other doors and, if Superman is able to defeat him, players can earn even bigger prizes – including up to 100x their base wagers.
If players open a door that leads to kryptonite, however, the bonus game will come to an end.
