It’s virtually impossible that you aren’t familiar with the movie. It had one of history’s largest budgets, and enjoyed several years of hype before finally hitting our screens last summer. The movie also introduced the world to the new Wonder Woman, who has since gone on to smash records with her own movie.
Long story short, it’s a big’un. If you’re not a fan of the movie franchise, however, this slot will probably do nothing for you: it doesn’t boast exceptional graphics, animations, payouts or any of the other hallmarks of a great game. Its main benefit, unsurprisingly, is the use of a star-studded cast to decorate the reels.
Despite being a very serious movie, and darker than the majority of all comic book stories, the slot has an almost childlike cartoon design, with an unpleasant blue background and glowing clipart symbols. It’s fine, but less than you’d expect from such a high profile source.
Gameplay and Layout
It’s a 5-reel video slot, with 15 symbols total and 25 unique paylines. You can’t vary the number of active paylines, however it is possible to wager between $0.50 and $2,500 on every spin – this should satisfy the appetite of even the highest-rolling gamblers!
Batman vs Superman Bonus
There are 2 active wilds available at all times: Superman and Batman! Each moves laterally across the reels after each spin: Superman to the left, Batman to the right. When the two eventually cross paths, however, it opens a cracking bonus round of unlimited free spins!
You predict the victor, and if you’re right, you’ll be rewarded with extra spins! If not, you’ll still get extra wilds adorning the reels.
Dawn of Justice Bonus
There’s a 3rd wild during the base game which fills the entire middle reel, and that’s Doomsday, the bad guy monster from the movie! He moves over to reel 5 and begins traversing left with each spin. If he encounters a hero (including Wonder Woman), he is pushed back to reel 5! Keep him at bay long enough, and you’re certain to reap the benefits of this 3-tiered wild!
When he finally reaches reel 1, he expands to consume the first 2 reels for the grande spin finale!
Given this is a blockbuster of epic proportion, we expected the attention to detail for graphics and design to be top notch. Unfortunately, Playtech seems to have leaned a bit too heavily on the fame of its characters, and not committed to making the game high quality.
It’s fine, of course, but a shade below what we were hoping for.
