The World’s Greatest Detective
The Batman Begins video slot is, naturally, based on the 2005 film of the same name. As such, we expect that we’ll see the same darker, humanistic tone associated with the film, including all of the key players in the titular character’s battle with Ra’s al Ghul and the Scarecrow. Expect to see plenty of Gotham City as well as ample video and audio clips pulled from the movie itself, as this game will definitely want to appeal to fans of the movie as much as it possibly can.
One thing that you can count on when it comes to software by Playtech is that all of their newest games will be created in HTML5, insuring that they will be mobile-optimized. What we’re less certain about is the way betting levels will be handled. Given the wide appeal of the theme, we imagine casual players will be a main target, which means that plenty of low limit options should be available – and, hopefully, a free online slots version will also be offered at many online gambling sites.
Climbing Into the Batmobile
One area of the Batman Begins video slot that is still shrouded in darkness is the gameplay itself. We have no idea how many reels or paylines will be involved, as we haven’t seen so much as a preview image for this game as of yet. That said, it seems obvious that you’ll be looking to match all of the iconic characters from the film, especially since the developers will probably want to get the famous faces of Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, and others into the game if possible.
Most of the special features and free spins bonus rounds are under wraps for now as well. That said, we do know that this machine is planned to be a part of the DC Super Heroes Progressive Jackpot system. This linked progressive can be found on numerous Playtech games based on DC properties, and offers players the opportunity to win any of four different levels of prizes, with the grand prize usually being worth several hundred thousand euros.
A Hero for the Night
Even with an almost complete lack of information, we have to say that we’re highly anticipating the release of the Batman Begins online slot. After all, the Dark Knight himself is shrouded in mystery, so why shouldn’t his machine be as well? Thankfully, the title is in the right hands, and we’re sure the skilled developers over at Playtech will do a great job of mixing strong gameplay with the thematic elements necessary to appeal to fans of the film. We’ll be sure to post a review once this game hits the iGaming world, which we expect to happen sometime in the next few months.
