The Superman slot machine is ready to please the gamblers not only with yet another meeting with the heroes of the DC comics, but also with payouts with coefficients of up to 500. The slot from Playtech has 5 reels and 100 paylines.
Each player has a chance to become the owner of this super prize. This is a progressive jackpot, realized on 4 levels. The device is rich in prize functions. Among them, there are such advantageous features as free spins and a spectacular themed bonus.
In the Superman gaming machine, all 100 lines are active and their number is not adjustable. Gamblers can manage the size of the bet. It is carried out using the Total Bet menu. It’s possible to choose from 0.6 to 80 credits. It is a sum bet. This amount is withdrawn from the player’s account after each spin.
There are such controls on the console under the reels:
The reels also start moving after pressing a space key on the keyboard. Above the reels, the player can find 4 information boxes with the inscriptions Grand, Major, Minor, and Mini. Each of them gives information about the current size of the progressive jackpot of the corresponding level. This function will be described in more detail in the final part of the review. In the main game, you can get a winning by collecting from 3 to 5 identical symbols on the line. To calculate the line bet, you have to divide the total amount by one hundred.
Superman’s image is the most expensive icon. It multiplies the line bet by 50, 200, and 500 times. The portraits of the terrestrial incarnation of the main character, Clark Joseph Kent, and his girlfriend, Lois Lane, have the coefficients of 30, 125, and 250. Below are the multipliers for other images that are used:
The Superman logo in the form of the letter S is a wild symbol. It replaces almost all the pictures in winning combinations. The exception is the icons with the Free Games and Bonus inscriptions. All three of the above icons do not have their own multipliers, but they have more interesting features that will be described in the next section of the review.
The Free Games inscription is a scatter with the help of which the user gets access to one of the bonuses. When this icon drops out on 1st, 3rd, and 5th reels simultaneously, 10 free spins start. During them, the wild symbol is fixed on the reels. After 10 spins, Superman uses one of his supernormal abilities. He turns the clock back, so the gambler gets 10 more free spins with all the fixed earlier wild symbols.
If an icon with the Bonus inscription appears on 3 central reels at the same time, a bonus game begins. During it, 14 crystals appear on the screen instead of the reels. They have to be opened one at a time. This will allow you to receive instant prizes. If the player opens the crystal with a circular arrow, the bonus game will start again. The green crystal stops the round with all the winnings saved. If the user opens the Superman icon, the green crystal will open and the user will be able to continue the game.
The theoretical return percentage of the Superman slot is about 95%. The most promising feature is the progressive jackpot. Initially, every user can win it. It includes a separate round, which is launched randomly at any point in the game. However, the higher the bet, the more likely the player is to enter it.
As already mentioned, the jackpot is divided into 4 levels. In the game, 20 cells appear on the screen. Each of them belongs to one of the levels. You have to select cells one at a time. After making a choice, its level becomes obvious. When the player opens a sufficient number of cells, he receives a jackpot. This game is a win-win.
