Review of the Cryptologic Superman Slot
The Superman slot is created by Crptologic and based on the original DC comic book version of Superman. The the symbols in the game are comic book drawings, set against the background of sprawling Metropolis. This is a very playable video slot which offers three separate jackpots and also has an interesting bonus feature.
In this review I explore all of the features of the Superman slot. I start by examining the basics of the game and the options you’ll have when playing. I move on to explain the pay table and the bonus features available in the game. The review ends with a look at the devices you’ll be able to play the game on.
Superman Slot – The Basics
This is a 5 reel slot featuring up to 25 win lines. The amount of win lines is customizable, so you’ll be able to play any amount from 1 to 25 lines. You’ll also be able to choose your bet size per line – the minimum being 5p up to a maximum of £10 per line. The game also has an auto play feature, where you’ll be able to set the game to spin as many times as you wish – however you’ll need to click this for each additional spin, so it doesn’t actually save you a single mouse click.
You’ll be paid for hitting consecutive symbols from left to right with the top prizes reserved for hitting all 5 symbols, although you’ll also receive a win for hitting 3 or 4 symbols (the best symbols in the game will also award a win for landing 2). Superman himself is the top symbol in the game, giving you 5,000 coins if hitting all five, but perhaps more importantly, this also acts as the ‘wild’ symbol. Lex Luther and Lois Lane are the next most profitable symbols. Other symbols in the game include Superman lifting a train and a helicopter, Kryptonite, his trademark glasses and his fist of steel.
Superman Slot – Bonus Feature and Jackpots
The Superman slot bonus feature is activated when hitting three or more of the scatter symbol anywhere across the 5 reels– this being the ‘S’ symbol synonymous with the character. You’ll see Superman standing in front of 3 vaults, each one containing a hostage. You’ll choose a vault which will reveal a hostage, alongside the number of free spins you’ll have and the multiplier you’ll have on these spins. You’ll now have a choice. Do you stick with your selection, or rescue another hostage? If choosing the second hostage, you’ll stick with this selection. The game will then automatically go ahead and play out your free spins.
The game also features three jackpots which are randomly awarded, although you’ll have more chance of winning the higher stakes you play. These consist of the hero jackpot (£126 at time of writing), the Super Hero jackpot (£2,800) and the Mega Hero Jackpot (£7,000).
Superman Slot – Device Compatibility
This slot is available to play directly in your browser using Flash software and can also be enjoyed in the download version of your casino, available for both a Windows computer and a Mac. This game can also be played in a casino app which is available for both Apple and Android devices.
Superman Slot – Overview
This is a slot which offers comic book fans something to get their teeth into. The game is a fun one, but it does suffer a little for a lack of atmosphere, with no great soundtrack accompanying the game. The bonus feature is a good one, with a different take on the standard free spins offering, however it is the only bonus feature in the game and more variety would be welcomed. Fortunately, the game has the additional three Jackpot prizes, which does give the slot something of a lift. Overall, it’s a playable game, not really comparible with the Marvel Slots at PlayTech, though entertaining enough for an occasional spin.
