The Dark Knight Review
Many will have heard of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight due to the phenomenal performers in the film. Heath Ledger as the Joker and Christian Bale as Batman are utter perfections and a cinematic match made in hell.
It's no wonder that Playtech decided to release a follow up to the successful Batman Begins slot - thus The Dark Knight slot was born. This slot plays on 5-reels with 50 paylines and even is connected to the DC Super Heroes Jackpot - what more could you want?
On the surface, this slot is quite clunky for a modern audience but it does fit in with the DC Super Heroes style. It may not be the most exciting design, but it fits in with the brand which makes it decent in our books.
The symbols on the reels feature the characters throughout the film with no one being missed off. You'll find Chief Jim Gordon (played by Gary Oldman), Two-Face (played by Aaron Eckhart), Rachel Dawes (played by Maggie Gyllenhall), The Joker (played by Heath Ledger) and of course Batman (played by Christian Bale).
Behind the reels, you'll find a skyline view of Gotham City with flames at the bottom of the screen and bats at the top. It makes not be earth-shattering, but it definitely puts you in the Batman mood.
There's not much of a licenced soundtrack, but it features an epic score that fits in with the darkness of Batman. It definitely builds up tension as you spin the reels!
The core gameplay is relatively straightforward with everything being explained. It only really gets a little tricky with the jackpot, but it will walk you through it and what you do during the mini-game.
From left to right, you have all the information that you need with the paytable, stake selection, autospins and the spin button.
Surprisingly, this slot has a low to medium volatility level with a pretty good RTP of 95.96%. Of course, the maximum base game win is 1,500x your stake - but the biggest win comes from the DC Super Heroes Jackpot! There are four different progressive jackpots that can see players win up to £1,000,000.
It's no surprise that The Dark Knight is still a popular slot amongst player as there are so many creative features in this slot! This added with the brand of Batman and the progressive jackpot, just make it a winning formula.
