One of Microgaming’s strengths is bringing blockbuster movies to life as compelling online slots, and its Dark Knight slot is one very fine example.
Built upon the characters and dark-brooding atmosphere of one of the most successful Batman movies, The Dark Knight slot not only promises players a superheroic online slot experience but also a tantalising chance to win a multi-million-dollar progressive jackpot.
Microgaming software – The Dark Knight slot’s epic adventure starts with a five-reel basegame, but graced with Microgaming’s innovative 243 ways to win.
Explained in more detail elsewhere on this site, the 243 Ways to Win replaces traditional paylines, and creates a huge increased potential for a spin to build multiple wins.
Playing this class of slot is just as easy as more traditional video slots, and you simply have to select a stake you want to place then hit the spin button to see what fate awaits you.
Placing bets – Like all the best online slots, betting options are flexible to accommodate different players’ budgets and you can get in the action for as little as $0.30 or ‘go large’ with a maximum stake of $6.00 per spin.
The other good news here is that, common to Microgaming’s ‘Mega’ games, The Dark Knight’s progressive jackpot prize is randomly triggered and all players can win it – your stake size doesn’t affect your eligibility to get into that bonus game.
Within the basegame of The Dark Knight slot there are a number of special features to watch for: Microgaming has gleefully plundered the fantastic source material of The Dark Knight movie to present this online slot with an authentic, cinematic feel.
Film clips are liberally used to enhance the reels with Cinematic Spins and the dramatic soundtrack brings a thumping, Hans Zimmer feels into play to bring an exciting tension to play.
This is not a relaxing, fluffy online slot and does great justice to its Batman theme – it’s a brooding, menacing challenge we think the Dark Knight would happily take on when he’s not out crime-fighting the villains of Gotham City.
Big wins – The standard jackpot for The Dark Knight’s base game is a pretty pleasing 2000x your line bet should five Wilds land on an active payline.
However, the Dark Knight has a dark secret that has players really whipped up – the Mega progressive jackpot.
