Ease of Play
It may be me but it took a bit of figuring out in the bonus rounds.
Graphics & look
The graphics were very well executed but I wanted to see a bit more animation. The music however was fantastic, some of the best and most atmospheric I have heard in a slot.
There is an opportunity to win quite big on the bonus rounds and the main game itself does pay out reasonably steadily.
Three bonuses and an in-game feature but they didn’t really engage me like other games.
I wanted to like this more because I loved the movie but the standard has been set pretty high for Superhero games and it just left me a tiny bit bored.
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES SLOT REVIEW:
The Dark Knight Rises is a Microgaming slot that launched in 2013 and is based on the movie of the same name. The Dark Knight is, of course, Batman who comes out of retirement to save Gotham City from Bane, a deranged terrorist.
The slot game is a 5 reel, video slot with 243 ways to win like a number of Microgaming’s recent slots. It is a follow-up to The Dark Knight but unlike its predecessor there is no progressive jackpot. Instead it has new features such as the Free Spins Accumulator, Symbol Scramble and Split Wilds.
These new features are activated randomly in the base game. Firstly there is the Symbol Scramble feature where all the symbols on the reels move around into different positions to give you winning combinations. Next is the Expanding Wild feature where the Special Wild symbol is an expanding wild on reel 3. Then there is the Fight Mode feature where you are awarded a random number of free spins and a multiplier. Batman and Bane fight it out in glorious 3D to award you a random number of free spins and a multiplier value. This is then added to the free spins/multiplier in the Free Spins Bonus feature whenever you next trigger it.
This is the meat of the game and lands when you get 3 or more scatter bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. You get 10 free spins but can choose to play as either Bane or Batman.
Bane gives you the Rolling Reels Feature each time you get a win. Winning symbols explode and allow new symbols to appear meaning you can win and win. The other is the Super Stacked Wilds feature which is unlocked once you activate the Free Spins Bonus feature 10 times. The Dark Knight Rises logo symbol becomes the wild and creates a stack when appearing on reels 2 and 4. This can result in huge wins!
If you choose Batman, you have the Extra Wild Blast feature – you get to choose a symbol as an extra wild which can increase your chances of winning. Then there’s the Heat Seeking Wilds feature which is unlocked once you trigger the Free Spins Bonus feature 10 times. Random symbols on the 3 middle reels are then transformed into wilds which can split into 2, creating more chances to win.
I thought it was a bit complicated to be honest but if you are lucky in the Fight Mode you can accumulate big wins in the Free Spins Bonus Feature.
