The Dark Knight Slot Review
The Dark Knight slot is a progressive jackpot game with 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Powered by Microgaming, it’s based on the 2008 film (The Dark Knight) which was a huge success. It is the 3rd highest grossing movie in the US of all time and took over $1 billion worldwide. The Dark Knight Rises film launches in July 2012 which means The Dark Knight Rises slot game will be coming in early 2013.
Anyway, this Batman-themed slot is sure to excite you as it has a whole host of features. You can play for as little as 30p a spin to £6 a spin with a top payout of 4 million coins on offer. The game uses Cinematic Spins which means you will see clips from the film – these appear when you have a winning combination. I quite like them to be honest as they make the game more realistic – if you want to spin away without distractions, you can turn them off.
In the base game, look out for Batman and The Joker as they appear randomly. They can reward you with cash prizes, extra wild symbols and even wild reels. The symbol to look out for in the base game is the Joker scatter symbol as 2 of these anywhere on the reels will trigger the Free Spins feature.
You will automatically receive 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier. Batman and The Joker play their part (randomly of course) and can reward you with extra free spins and/or a multiplier increase (up to 5x). Getting a 5x multiplier on the free spins can really increase your winning potential.
Last but not least are the 4 progressive jackpots. Like other features in the game, entry to win one of them is triggered randomly. The Mega Progressive Jackpot, the biggest of the 4, will be a guaranteed minimum of 1 million coins. Once in, you need to choose Batman or The Joker (choosing your side) and then spin the jackpot wheel. The bigger your stake, the higher the chances of triggering a jackpot (pretty standard).
The Dark Knight is a great looking game with the random rewards being quite good. The Free Spins feature is the best thing about the game as the bigger wins come from here. However, hitting the progressive jackpot is unlikely but one can only dream! The Dark Knight is not available to play for free though due to it being a progressive jackpot slot (hence the video preview above).
