During our last run with the refreshed DC superheroes slots from NextGen, we focused on the bigger names like Batman and Superman, although heroes like the Green Lantern still had an opportunity to get involved as part of the Justice League team-up slot. Now, he is the star of the show on his very own game. He has made sporadic appearances on TV and in the movies – although we would not suggest actively seeking out the most recent movie any time soon! Fortunately, this slot is more inclined towards paying homage to the comics than the movies, as with every single slot in the range, and we are expecting big things once again from this one.
What to Expect
If you have been playing some of the original creations within the NextGen range on your mobile device then you will instantly be struck by the size of the board on this one. Green Lantern offers four rows of symbols rather than the traditional three and makes it all worthwhile by ensuring that players have fifty lines of action to enjoy on every single spin. This works out particularly well within the game itself as the Green Lantern works as a wild card and can land in full stacks on reels two and four. Stacked or not, he will also double the value of prizes when he is part of the symbol combination.
Fifty-line games are pretty easy to play in general but, true to form, NextGen has thrown in a bit of a curveball with the inclusion of the Bonus Bet. This is a pretty simple one, as if you place ten additional coins on a spin then you have a chance of triggering a specific feature, and if you go without then the feature will simply not play a part in proceedings. That feature pits Green Lantern against Sinestro in an on-screen battle, with the outcome being a prize worth between ten and a hundred times your total bet. We feel that ten coins per spin is a small price to pay to make this feature available, but the most important thing I that it is completely optional depending on your own personal tastes.
Whether you go with the Bonus Bet or not, the main draw on this game is the free spins round. The scatter is an actual green lantern as opposed to the hero and you will be looking to land it on reels two, three and four at the same time in order to trigger 24 free games. If and when you land a scatter on the third reel, the existing wild stacks will grow with two further wild symbols and wild wins are now multiplied by four as opposed to the original two.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
We have never really been massive Green Lantern fans and that might have a bit of a bearing on the fact that we would have to consider this game as being the weakest of the DC Comics slots range from NextGen. The features are not exciting enough for a superhero slot in our opinion and while this game is by no means bad, when the direct competition from The Flash, Batman and others is so much more exciting, it can really cast this game in a poor light. This is one for Green Lantern fans only as far as we are concerned, but there should still be more than enough of them out there to ensure this game’s continuing popularity.
