The Dark Knight Rises
The Dark Knight Rises from Microgaming
The recent Batman trilogy was highly regarded and seen by many as being one of the very best series of superhero movies ever made. It was always likely to be a major coup for one lucky slots developer and, as we saw with the first game in that series, Microgaming was the company tasked with plenty to live up to. The first game was a big success but the Dark Knight is back and better than ever here on this 243 ways to win video slot that offers up one of the most unique features that players are ever likely to have laid eyes on! Check out the game above or read on for the spoilers of exactly what to expect!
The first feature, and one that crops up regularly in the base game, is the Symbol Scramble. This could not be simpler as the screen shakes and every symbol in view is rearranged in order to make for the largest possible winning combination.
Build your Free Spins Round with Battles
The most epic part of the game actually takes place within the base game and sees the Caped Crusader taking on Bane in a good old fashioned fist fight! The two leading characters may appear on the screen at random and will then land blows on each other, building up their own free spins and multiplier meters as they do so. It can actually lead to quite a large number of spins and a particularly handy multiplier.
When you land three of the bomb scatter symbols, the free spins round begins and you can take your pick of the accumulated totals of either Batman or Bane. Fortunately, this isn’t just as simple as choosing whichever character has earned the most spins, as you’ll also need to consider the added features that each brings to the table.
Bane Free Spins
If you opt for Bane’s spins then you’ll grab whatever he has earned together with rolling reels for the first nine free spins rounds. In a nice twist, the symbols that are destroyed as part of rolling reels are damaged by the Batmobile before leaving the screen. When you enter the bonus game for the tenth and subsequent times, super stacked wilds will also be added to the board.
Batman Free Games
If you choose to go with Batman and his collected spins, you’ll receive a wild blast bonus, which allows players to select a symbol to serve as an additional wild card for the duration of the bonus game. From the tenth entry into the bonus game, heat seeking wilds will be added. These wild cards can split into two, bringing the possibility of six of a kind wins into the game.
