One of the first things that will catch the eye of any player when they begin the game is the Cinematic Spins, where each spin will offer a short clip from the film in the background. This looks quite impressive and is a great feature for fans of The Dark Knight. However, some may find it to be distracting and it can take away from the main action occurring on the reels of the game. There is an option to turn the Cinematic Spins off by selecting the Options Menu.
The wild in the game is the Batman logo and this is a stacked symbol that can appear on all five reels. By getting five Batman logos or Batman symbols on the reels, the payout is 400 coins. This is not a huge amount, but considering that some of these symbols will appear stacked, there is a chance to get an entire screen of wilds for a massive 97,200 coin payout.
Two important symbols to watch for as the reels spin are Batman and Joker. These can award different bonuses in the game, including Instant Payouts, Win Multipliers, Wild Reels, Wild Symbols and Wild Re-Spins. The Joker Graffiti icon is the game scatter and this is the key to winning free spins on the game. With three or more of these, one will enjoy 15 free spins and a multiplier of 2x. If the Joker or Batman appears during these spins, players can win more free games, more multipliers or one of the extra bonus features.
The free spin round cannot be retriggered, but with the highest multiplier of 5x and the chance to get as whole screen of wilds, the highest payout is 486,000 when betting the lowest amount and an impressive 4,860,000 coin win with a maximum bet.
The progressive jackpot can be awarded at random following any spin on the game and players will trigger the Mega Moolah Bonus. Here, they will see a second screen that offers the choice between Batman and the Joker. A wheel will spin and the highlighted segment will reveal the amount won.
