Our most recent NextGen mobile slot review covered their Batman game and, as the most recent movie in the franchise at the time of writing would suggest, where Batman goes, Superman is rarely all that far behind. He was another of the early additions to the DC Comics range of mobile slots that has recently been revived by the game maker to thrill online and mobile players alike. As with the other games in the same series, this game draws heavily on the comic books rather than the movies, and that is all pretty charming. There are multiple ways to win across a decent sized board and also a whole host of great features to keep any bankroll building, so let’s take a look at what is involved in this game below.
What to Expect
All of the DC mobile slots generally give players the opportunity to place a Bonus Bet although the result of such a bet could be just about anything. It is the earliest consideration here on Superman and while you can play for standard stakes across the fifty lines, you can opt instead to place ten additional coins on every spin. With this bet in place, players can access the Save the World bonus feature when the symbols land correctly – although if you decide against the additional bet, you would not know that it was missing necessarily.
When the gameplay starts, Superman himself is one of the main symbols to look out for as he will keep things ticking over at all times by serving as the wild card. He can fill in for any symbol on the board except for the two different scatters, with the first of them being another Superman symbol, although this one only appears on reels two, three and four. This feature is available regardless of the Bonus Bet and landing all three symbols at the same time will launch ten free spins. One reel will be completely wild on every spin and Superman can fly onto the screen to tack a multiplier of between two and five times onto prizes.
The Save the World feature is, as noted, exclusive to players using the Bonus Bet, and three bonus icons on the board at the same time will trigger it. Cash is awarded along the way as Superman first battles through a meteor storm, then has to destroy one of the five missiles that are heading towards Earth, before finally choosing one of three doors – which are lined with lead to prevent any x-ray vision shenanigans. Behind one door is kryptonite, which signals the end of the round, while another is full of hostages, which will lead to an additional cash prize. The top prize of a hundred times your bet is reserved for finding Lex Luthor.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
We prefer Batman as a character and these NextGen superhero slots are so well themed that we are naturally going to prefer that game. Mechanically, the two games are exceptionally similar and if you are more into the Man of Steel than the Caped Crusader, then this is clearly the game that you will want to play. It is fun and packed with value, especially with so many win lines, and our only piece of additional advice would be to ensure that you are making use of the Bonus Bet as the Save the World feature can be a real difference maker to any session.
