How to Play

The Dark Knight slot is a five reel progressive game, with 243 ways to win. This means that rather than getting matching symbols on the same payline, they can be anywhere across the board for a win.

The first thing to do when you play this game is to decide on your bet size. You can bet from one to 10 coins.

Unlike many other progressive slots, you don’t have to bet the maximum to be in with a chance of winning big, so The Dark Knight slots are a great choice for players who don’t necessarily feel like burning through their bankroll all at once. Once you have chosen your bet with the + and – buttons, it’s time to spin the reels! Hit spin and cross your fingers!

Because this is a 243 ways to win slot, your matching symbols don’t necessarily have to line up for you to get a win. Three of any matching symbols anywhere on the reels should get you something, and if you are lucky enough to get some of the feature symbols you could win even more.

  • Wild – The Dark Knight logo. This symbol substitutes for any other symbol to increase your chance of winning. If you get five wilds on a single spin you also win. The wild symbol can be stacked, giving you more chances of winning, and it can act as a mega wild.
  • Scatter – This is a combination of the Batman logo and the face of the Joker. If it appears on three or more reels you will trigger the bonus game, get 15 free spins and your winnings will be doubled. Five or more scatters will also earn you a payout.
  • Free spins – there are a few ways to earn The Dark Knight free spins. Two or more scatter symbols will get you 15 free spins, and you can get more free spins during the free spin round if you see Batman or the Joker on the reels.

While there are some nice payouts to be won from playing the main game, the randomly triggered bonus round is where you can get a shot at one of the four progressive jackpots.

Jackpots

The Dark Knight casino game is already fantastic, but the possibility of a multi million pound jackpot just sweetens the deal. The biggest payout so far has been £5.8 million, not bad at all!

To win the jackpot you need to play the randomly triggered bonus game. If you’re lucky enough to get this game you will be shown a jackpot wheel, divided into sections for the different jackpots. You choose either Batman or the Joker and then spin the wheel.

The Dark Knight is a medium to high volatility game as it offers a good number of smaller wins. The mega jackpot doesn’t pay out all that often but you don’t need to wager a huge amount to be in for a chance of winning it.

Special Features and Bonuses

This game comes packed with special features, starting with the cinematic spins mode. Here you are treated to clips from the movie with each spin. If you find it distracting, don’t worry, you can always turn it off!

Other special features include stacked wilds, free spin games and multipliers. The stacked wilds appear randomly, and two or more scatter symbols multiply your wins by two.

The free spins game can be very lucrative. You get up to 15 free spins when you get at least three scatters. During this round the Dark Knight logo will behave like a stacked wild, giving you more chances of winning and your wins will be doubled.

Biggest Winner

The biggest winner of the Dark Knight to date is Mr John Orchard who won £5.8 million in December 2012 – I’m sure it was a very merry Christmas for him that year!

Graphics and Sounds

The Dark Knight encapsulates all the darkness of Gotham City with its moody colour scheme and sinister sound effects. The graphics are absolutely top notch here and recreate the film beautifully. Enjoy clips from the movie with the cinematic spins feature, and see all your favourite characters from Batman come alive on the reels.

Conclusion

The Dark Knight is a must try for Batman fans, and even those who aren’t into the movies will love this game. With plenty of great features, a very appealing jackpot on offer and amazing graphics and gameplay there’s no reason not to give it a go!
