Playtech released Superman 2 slot game simultaneously with Superman the Movie slot which is based on the 1978 movie. While the other slot game is a very rich playing experience, Superman 2 plays more like a standard slot game in which you wait to land three scatters – though when you do you’ll get a choice between 5 bonus features, two of which all but guarantee a huge payout, and there’s the DC Superheroes Jackpot to be won randomly.

Superman 2 – General review
The main objective of Superman 2 is to land three Daily Planet Scatter symbols. That’s when you’ll make the headlines by triggering the Daily Planet Headline Bonus, and you’ll have to hit Stop to randomly select among the five possible headlines, each triggering its own bonus feature, three versions of free spins and two versions of bonus games.
The battle for Metropolis is a pick-a-prize bonus game where you’ll pick among six shields. Lois & Clark is a richer version of it, with 30 shields, five collection areas for the prizes, and a chance to double all prizes. Phantom Zone Free Games offers unlimited free spins where Phantom Zone will occupy a different 2×2 area on your reels with each spin, and a certain symbol will end the game. Skyline Fight is a free spins game with 10 free spins with progressive multipliers and a chance to halt the free spins counter. X-Ray Vision awards 15 free spins with some extra Wilds.
To add to all this, there’s the Superman Wild feature which gets triggered randomly during base game. Superman will fly over the reels randomly and will turn two, three or four symbols on the reels Wild. But it seems there are too many symbols so Wilds don’t create a winning combination often – there are four card symbols, two more low-paying symbols, and five main symbols with Superman, Lois, General Zod and his two sidekicks, plus Scatter and Wild.

Strategy and Tips to win Superman 2 slot game
The game has theoretical payout (RTP) of 95.03% which includes the 0.99% contribution to the progressive jackpot, and all in all it’s not a bad return for a progressive jackpot slot. The game has high variance so as you play it becomes more and more clear this is one of those standard slots in which you have to play for a long time to trigger the bonus feature. With only three locations for three Scatters, that won’t happen often.
So the best strategy is the one that applies to all similar slots – put it on Autoplay and make sure you got a large enough bankroll to handle many, many spins before the deserved payout comes in the form of a bonus feature. And if it happens to be Phantom Zone Free Games or Lois & Clark pick-a-prize bonus game, you’ll make money on Superman 2 slot. It can be done, but it takes quite a bit of patience.

In case you were wondering, Superman 2 is a greatly inferior playing experience to Superman the Movie slot which was released by Playtech at the same time. They are two very different slot games.
