Superman Slot Review
For many years, licensed slot games weren’t exactly Aristocrat’s cup of tea and they preferred to rely on their own creativity to come up with the themes that would launch their titles to superstardom. However, the industry has changed significantly since the likes of Queen of the Nile and 5 Dragons hit casino floors and many developers have proved that there is a massive market among players that want to combine quality slots action with some familiar characters. Superheroes in particular are always in demand. The Phantom by Aristocrat, for example, has been featured here at Mr Gamez since launch and continues to be a popular choice and that’s without even mentioning the Action Heroes section here on the site, or Playtech’s wildly popular Marvel range.
Unlike Playtech, who now hold exclusive Marvel rights following Cryptologic’s stint, various developers have been tackling DC Comics characters over recent times. Indeed, one of the biggest releases of recent months was Microgaming’s The Dark Knight Rises which was widely acclaimed. So, with plenty to live up to, let’s see how Aristocrat gets on when bringing the Man of Steel to the reels! As a side note, if you want to check out our top online alternatives to Superman before reading the feature, then you’ll find them, as always, on the dedicated page.
What is there to say about Superman that you won’t already know? He’s the guy who enjoys wearing his favourite red undies on the outside of his blue tights and has a big yellow shield on his chest. Okay, we’re making that sound a little simple and it doesn’t necessarily explain how this all fits onto the slot itself. That same shield sits atop the gaming cabinet to attract the attention of players and the game itself takes on a decidedly comic book style as opposed to using inspiration from the recent movies. One thing that does make an appearance is the Superman theme – you know the one, the tune that everybody knows!
Gameplay and Prizes
Betting on Superman is simple enough for just about any player. While many of the latest Aristocrat games seem to be seeing just how many win lines they can cram in before the machine falls over under stress, this one keeps things simple with just the standard 25 win lines. Coin bets come in one and two cent varieties but the game continues to be flexible enough to come up with a variety of winning combinations. Something that you should look out for is the ante bet, where you can place additional credits on the game with no immediate benefit. In a nod to some Aristocrat games of yesteryear, this ante comes into play when you hit the feature round as it automatically adds more free spins to your base total.
Features and Bonuses
Speaking of free spins, that base total is ten spins or fifteen with the ante in play. In an unusual twist, Kryptonite is actually beneficial here as three or more rocks on the reels will take you to the bonus round. There, you’ll find stacked Superman logos acting as wilds, Clark Kent turning into another wild Superman and quite a bit more. If you happen to scoop a stack of wilds on a spin, Superman will helpfully fly in to lock them in place for the rest of the round using his laser vision.
If you’re a little tired of free spins then you’ll be pleased to know that you actually have a choice and the Kryptonite does not necessarily mean free spins. You can also choose the dice feature or the logo feature, which offer different mechanics but equally great chances at winning a prize. It’s all rounded off with the progressive jackpots which can be won in any second screen feature.
If we were to guess, then we’d say that Superman is a shoe in for online conversion at some point, assuming that Aristocrat’s license for the character extends that far. Whether he makes it there or not is actually not that big an issue as you’ll definitely have got the impression that there is plenty of superhero slots action out there. That is definitely the case and we’ve captured the theme, gameplay, jackpots and more on our Superman alternatives page, which you can check out now for some top class games and casinos!
