Superman is powered by NextGen Gaming and is another superhero slot that follows on from Batman, The Green Lantern and The Flash. With 5 reels and 50 paylines, it can be played across desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 50p to £100 per spin.
The game is based on the fictional superhero that appeared in comic books that were published by DC Comics. With comic book style graphics, you will see Metropolis in the background – you will see the Daily Planet (Clark Kent’s place of work) in the bottom left-hand corner.
Symbols on the reels include Lex Luthor, Lois Lane, the Daily Planet, a Metropolis building, Clark Kent’s glasses, chains amongst other items. The most valuable symbol is Lex Luther who rewards you with 50 times your stake for 5 on a payline.
The wild symbol is Superman himself with 5 of them on a payline giving you 200 times your stake. He substitutes for all symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols. When part of a winning combination in the base game, Superman will subject wins to a 2x multiplier.
If the Superman wild appears on all 3 middle reels simultaneously, you will trigger the Free Games feature – here you will receive 10 free spins as well as an expanded Superman wild on any reel for each free spin. All wins with Superman are subject to a 5x multiplier.
You will notice there’s a Bonus Bet button in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen – if selected, your stake will go up by 20% meaning the minimum stake is 60p rather than 50p and the maximum stake is £120 rather than £100. This gives you access to the Save the World feature.
3 or more Superman bonus symbols will trigger the feature with 5 of them giving you 100 times your stake as a cash bonus. Superman then makes his way through a meteor shower and destroys missiles to win cash prizes.
Then he reaches Earth and you need to choose 1 of 3 lead-lined doors – if you find the room full of Kryptonite, the feature will end. If you find the room full of hostages, you will rescue them and win a cash prize. If you’re lucky enough to find Lex Luthor, you will win 100 times your stake!
Variance wise, Superman is somewhere in the middle which balanced payouts throughout – I found the Free Games feature to be the most rewarding due to the Superman wild reel and potential 5x multiplier on each free spin! Saying that, I recommend you try NextGen Gaming’s other superhero slots with Batman being my favourite.
