Fly Through the Skies
Before you crack on with the serious matter of saving the planet, take a few moment to fly through the paytable and see the prizes which are up for grabs. You can navigate to the paytable from the main screen using the “info” button on the left hand side of the reels.
To get a payout you’ll need a match of at least three of the same symbols but the more you match the greater the prize. The Superman S symbol is worth the most, paying out 5,000 for lining up five. This also doubles up as the wild for the game, standing in for other symbols on the reels to make up lines more easily.
Rolling the Reels
If you’re ready to take to the skies and defeat General Zod once more you’ll need to get ready to spin the five reels. Laid out in the standard 5×3 pattern there’s 25 paylines included which are fixed. This means you can’t change the number of paylines in play but it’s a fairly average number which falls down the centre of the usual range. You can however set the value of the coin from the minimum of 0.01 up to the limit of 1.00. This provides a total min bet of 0.25 and a total max bet of 25.00. Although there’s some scope here to crank up the stake, there’s not the really high bets available which would attract those chasing the top wins.
While you are spinning the reels in a bid to line up symbols, keep your eyes open for a generous host of extras which could give you a bumper boost. As well as the wild, there’s also a special Daily Planet Headline Bonus which can be unlocked when you land at least three symbols.This bonus includes a series of 5 special features, of which you’ll have the chance to play one.
In addition to this bonus you could also be chosen for the jackpot payout. Everyone has the chance of winning but the higher you bet, the greater your chance. There’s four different progressive jackpots and once picked, you’re guaranteed to walk away with at least one. You’ll have a screen of covered icons and as you turn them over and reveal what’s behind each one, the jackpot box you complete the first is the one you’ll win.
