Batman and the Batgirl Bonanza is a 5 reel, 60 payline game powered by Playtech. Available to play on all compatible devices like tablets, mobiles and desktops (laptops/PCs) from 30p to £30 per spin, it’s part of the DC Comics slots series. As well as 4 progressive jackpots to be won, it has 2 bonus features.
Like the other DC Comics slots from Playtech, it has a comic book/retro feel to it as it’s based on the original television series. You will find Batman, Batgirl, Robin, Alfred Pennyworth, a Batarang folding knife, a Batcycle and other artefacts on the reels. You will see Bat-Gang Co-Op symbols (such as Batman and Robin, Batgirl and Batman and Batgirl and Robin) which can stand for either character to increase your winning potential.
The Batman logo is the wild and gives you 2,000 times your line stake for 5 on a payline – it also substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. In terms of the layout, it has 2 reels with 2 symbols each on them (which spin separately) as well as 3 reels with 4 symbols on each.
On to the features – look out for matching symbols on columns 1 and 2 as this will trigger the Batgirl Locked Respins feature. You will get 5 respins with the symbols on the first 2 reels locking in place for the respins. You can benefit from Co-Op and wild symbols as the matching symbols which will certainly help you win bigger.
Then you have the Batman Team-Up Free Games feature which is triggered when the Bonus scatter symbol appears on reels 3, 4 and 5 simultaneously. You then need to match super heroes before the feature plays out to win 12, 17 or 25 free spins. To enhance your wins, the first 2 reels merge to form 1 reel filled with giant 2×2 Super Symbols.
As with the other DC Comics slots, you can randomly win 4 progressive jackpots – you can enter the DC Super Hero Jackpot Game randomly on any spin. Once you’re in, you will certainly win 1 of the jackpots. You get to pick from 20 Jackpot Icons to match 3 the same – there’s the Mini, Minor, Major and Grand jackpots.
Like the other DC Comics games from Playtech, Batman and the Batgirl Bonanza is an entertaining slot which I found to be a medium to high variance offering. I like the Batgirl Locked Respins feature especially if your locked symbols are wilds! The same applies in the Batman Team-Up Free Games feature if you manage to get a 2×2 super wild symbol!
