The Dark Knight Slots - Microgaming
ABOUT THE DARK KNIGHT SLOTS
Themed on the 2008 motion picture of the same name, The Dark Knight slot launched in 2012 and it has really done one of the biggest movie franchises proud. Containing scenes from the original film, the five reel video slot offers 243 ways to win, it is equipped with four progressive jackpot and awards payouts up to mind-blowing 4,000,000 credits.
Chances are players will enjoy seeing their favourite actors populating the reels and playing a number of interesting characters. Christian Bale appears as Batman and Bruce Wayne, while other icons include Joker, Harvey Dent, Commissioner Gordon, Rachel Dawes, Lau, Mayor Garcia and Maroni. Playing cards Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace complete the list of non-feature icons, while Wild and Scatter symbols are also present.
HOW TO PLAY
The 243 Way Wins scheme means all wins occurring on adjacent reels qualify for a payout, which can really come in handy, while you will only be wagering 30 coins per spin at coin level 1. There are just two available coin denominations - $0.01 and $0.02, but players can increase their wager by staking up to 10 coins per line or 300 in total.
Batman Logo acts as Wild, substituting for all symbols with the exception of Scatter. It appears stacked in both base play and free spins, and in case it occurs stacked across all five reels, you will be awarded the top payout of staggering 4,000,000 coins, which translates to $40,000 or $80,000 depending on your coin denomination.
Microgaming's pride and joy offers endless opportunities to increase line wins, and we can even leave the four progressive jackpots out of the picture for now. Stacked Wilds and Scatter Wins could be the easiest way to drive up your earnings, whilst Batman or Joker Feature and highly rewarding Free Spins round have been known to award excellent prizes as well.
Three, four or five Movie Poster Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels award entry into the Free Spins round. Players are then given 15 free games that start at a 2x multiplier. In case the Joker pops up during the feature, he will either award extra free spins or additional multipliers, but either way, your potential winnings will be increased. Batman or Joker feature occurs at random during base play and free spins, and it will see either Batman or Joker appear on the reels to award you a random prize.
Scatter is depicted as a scary-looking movie poster that seem to represent Joker and this particular icon has a dual role. While three or more of these appearing in any position trigger the Free Spins round, awarding 15 free games at a starting 2x multiplier, it also pays out Scatter wins. Receive two, three, four and five Scatters anywhere on the game screen and you will be awarded an amount equal to 1x, 2x, 10x and 100x total bet respectively.
The Dark Knight video slot is linked to four progressive jackpots, with Mini, Minor, Major and Mega starting at $10.00, $100.00, $10,000.00 and $1,000,000.00 respectively. The jackpot game is triggered at random and players get to choose between Batman and Joker before the wheel spins to reveal which of the four jackpot you have won. At the time of writing, the Mega Jackpot was just short of $3,000,000, and bear in mind that the more you bet the bigger your chances of landing the top prize are.
