Batman and The Penguin Prize is powered by Playtech and part of the DC Comics series – with 6 reels, 4 rows and 64 reels, it can be played on all devices from 25p to £125 per spin. It has 1 major bonus feature as well as 4 progressive jackpots on offer.
Graphically, it’s like the other Playtech-powered Batman slots with a retro, 1960s feel to it – based on the original TV series, symbols on the reels include Batman, Robin and Penguin (who was played by Burgess Meredith), police chief Clancy O’Hara as well as the penguin’s hat and umbrella, statue and Batarang. The wild is the Batman logo which substitutes for all other symbols.
When you get a winning combination in the base game, you will trigger the Penguin Respins feature – here, you help Batman overpower the Penguin and his perilous pranks. Any win in the base game triggers the Penguin Respin 1 on 2nd set of reels with extra stacked symbols.
Any win in the Penguin Respin 1 will trigger the Penguin Respin 2 – the number of paylines increases to 4,096 and benefits from 2×2 Super Symbols! Now, if you have a win in the Penguin Respin 2, you will play the Penguin Respin 3 which also has 4,096 ways to win. However, you will now see 3×3 Mega Symbols on the reels. After this, you return to the default base game reels.
As with the other slots from the DC Super Heroes Jackpot network, you can randomly win 1 of 4 progressive jackpots – triggered on any spin, you will enter the Jackpot Game where you are guaranteed to win 1 of the jackpots. You have the Mini, Minor, Major and Grand jackpots with the latter being the most lucrative (and potentially life changing!).
Overall, Batman and The Penguin Prize is quite a simple slot with the bigger wins coming from the Penguin Respins (especially 2 and 3). With an increase number of ways of win, it’s all about the 2×2 Super and 3×3 Mega Symbols really. I found the variance to be in the middle and is a very entertaining game. If you like the theme, I recommend you try some of the other Batman slots with Batman and The Riddler Riches my favourite.
