One of the iconic battles between the dark super hero of Gotham and the evil jester is revived and brought to you as a setting for a new progressive video slot.
Batman and The Joker Jewels is the first one in the series of six DC Comics slots that will be released by Playtech. For now we will enjoy our favourite comic book characters in a 5 reel 25 payline slot that brings four progressive jackpots and a bunch of special features.
The audiovisual feel is excellent and completely in keeping with the 1960’s TV Series. The same can be said for the special features too, as they perfectly reflect the battle between the Caped Crusader and the Clown Prince of Crime.
The music and the video clips from the original show add some humour to the overall spinning experience, while Joker’s smile will be more than welcome in this particular episode.
What We Love
Playtech is always aiming high and this time they have secured a deal that allows them to exploit one of the most popular comic book brands and lend DC Comics heroes to create exciting slots. The first spinner of this kind shows that they realise the responsibility to create a slot worthy of the name it represents. And so they did.
At the very sound of four progressive jackpots that can be won at any time in the game, everyone will rush to spin this retro spinner. However, Gotham’s saviour and the joker will make sure that you get plenty of action while you are waiting for the hefty prizes.
It was a real pleasure playing this game as the symbols and the features are perfectly in tune with the theme. One interesting perk was that you get two types of Wilds. One is naturally representing the good guy and the other one is depicted as the big grin of the famous painted face.
We especially loved the addition of Bat-Tastic multiplier meter that moves back and forth whenever you land a Wild during the Free Spins. You stand to win a multiplier of up to 5 times your wins, but it all depends on what the Wild has in store for you.
There is a nice trick to pick which of the main characters will have the 5x multiplier on the meter. So this is the time to show whose side you are on. Don’t be afraid when you see hectic Joker running back and forth on your screen. He is there to help by adding up to 9 extra Wilds to your reels.
It is good to know that you could get hit by a stroke of luck at any time. If you happen to be so lucky to activate the jackpot screen, you will have to pick the fields and match the colours. The colour decides which jackpot you will get and if you exceed the given time limit it will be picked for you by the machine.
What We Do Not Like
With all the exciting features and the revival of our favourite characters, not to mention progressive jackpots what is there not to like?
However, what would make this slot perfect is if it were based on Tim Burton’s film instead of the TV Show from the 1960. It does look a little old.
We are not saying this because Batman is our favourite superhero, but Batman and The Joker Jewels are one of the most exciting slots out there at the moment.
If you are looking for fun, it is guaranteed with the excellently designed features and if you want massive payouts there is the possibility to win one of the four progressive jackpots. The slot comes highly recommended.
