Good battles evil in Green Lantern, a superhero-themed slot from Cryptologic and revamped by NextGen Gaming. Prizes of up to 100 times your stake can be won in a pick me bonus feature with more goodies on offer in the other feature that awards 24 free spins with a 4x multiplier. Playable on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, stakes in this 5 reel, 50 payline game range from between 50p and £120 per spin.
Visually, Green Lantern owes more to the original comic books than any film adaptations – symbols on show include lower value playing cards, a variety of weapons, friends and enemies of the Green Lantern. The best of them is the baddie Sinestro – land 5 of these on 1 of the 50 paylines for an impressive payout of some 10,000 coins.
The Green Lantern himself is the game’s wild – he may only appear on reels 2 and 4 but will boost any winning base game payline in which he appears with a 2x multiplier. In the free spins feature, this increases to 4x!
To trigger that Free Spins feature, you’ll need to land our masked hero on reels 2 and 4 and an actual green lantern on reel 3 – you’ll then be awarded 24 free spins. Every time a lantern lands, an extra Green Lantern wild is added to the reels, furthering your chances of landing a quadrupled payout.
The other extra is the Ring feature – to activate this, you must be playing in Bonus Bet mode. This costs a little extra per spin (60p at minimum bet) and as well as offering access to another feature it also significantly improves your Return to Player rate (up to 95%).
The Ring feature is triggered by landing 3 or more Bonus symbols – an animated Green Lantern will then fly onto the screen and slug it out with Sinestro. Prizes of anywhere between 2 and 100 times your stake are on offer here depending on the outcome of this mid-air scrap.
Green Lantern offers an entertaining overall package -the sound and visuals are very well done and there’s a quality assortment of features on offer. The Ring feature is easier to come by but the free spins probably offer more potential. As mentioned above, we recommend playing in Bonus Bet mode if you have the funds to do so.
This slot should appeal to comic book and superhero fans. Even if neither usually apply to you, there’s still enough here to make Green Lantern worth a go. I highly recommend you play Batman, which is powered by NextGen Gaming, as it’s a better game.
