General Batman Slot review
The most important thing about Batman slot game is that there is a Bonus Bet feature which costs a bit more to play than the regular spins, but adds a Descent into Madness feature to the game. How important this is is evident by the change in theoretical return to player (RTP) of the slot game. If you play the normal game, RTP will be 92.20%, and if you activate the Decent into Madness feature then RTP rises to 95.712%.
There are 50 compulsory paylines, and with a $0.01 minimum bet per payline the minimum bet in this slot game is $0.50 while the maximum is $50. If you activate the bonus bet, this will rise to $0.60 and $60 respectively, which means you’ll be paying 20% more for your paylines but will get a lot in return.
Descent into Madness feature awards a random win when you land three or more Bonus Logo Scatters. You’ll enter a fun little bonus game in which you’ll have to defeat Joker, and your reward will be up to 100x your bet. This is crucial to success in playing this game, so make sure you activate the Bonus Bet feature in order to enable Descent into Madness.
The other bonus feature, available regardless whether you play the normal game or Bonus Bet, is Batman Re-Spins. When Commissioner Gordon appears on reel 1 and the Bat Signal appears on reel 5, or vice versa, the feature will be activated. After paying winning combinations, reel 2, 3 or 4 will turn to Stacked Wilds and all other reels are re-spun three times. During re-spins all wins are doubled. This is a rewarding bonus game, but not as rewarding as a proper free spins game would be.
Graphics are excellent, comic book fans will love this slot game. While the game could use a bit more color on the symbols or their background so they’re more easily distinguished from one another, every single symbol has excellent artwork. This is a visually impressive game that immerses you into a comic book.
Strategy and Tips to play this NextGen Slot game
Batman is only meant to be played with the Bonus Bet feature activated as that gives you two bonus features instead of one, and that makes all the difference. Big payouts are possible in this game, but beware, Batman has a slightly higher variance so it might take a while before the bonus feature is triggered. Adjust your bet accordingly, this is a game which is meant to be played in longer playing sessions with patience.
