Superman The Movie Slot Machine

The Man of Steel (Superman, if you only know him by his nom de plume) has been tossed around the slots developers like General Zod flinging a busload of innocent citizens across a busy street. Cryptologic (now part of Amaya) has the original comicbooks tied up with a series of DC-themed games, but Playtech also churn out the odd hero-themed game as well.

In fact, in 2016 Playtech signed a deal with Warner Bros. to produceDC Comics-themed slots over the next few years. In will come four new titles based on the original Batman classic TV series and branded games based on recent DC big-screen efforts. Let's hope Man of Steel is a little better than the turgid movie that starred Henry Cavill as Superman.

Enjoy Super Spins Up To £80

First up in the range is a new slot based on Superman's original big-screen outing. 1978's Superman featured then-revolutionary special effects and stuntwork, some great technical work from the UK-based film crew, and an iconic score by John Williams. Oh, and Christopher Reeve was pretty decent too.

If you're a fan of the classic (hands up here) then you'll love what Playtech have done. Superman The Movie is played over five reels, and features 100 paylines. Players can bet from just 60p a spin or bump up the bankroll and go for the £80 top stakes. Best of all is the progressive jackpot which always lights up any Playtech comic-themed slot - as fans of the developer's Marvel Jackpot range will attest.

Play Across 100 Paylines From 60p

This is no dodgy unlicensed conversion from Playtech: with Warner Bros. on board PLUS DC Comics it means the developer can combine all sources. That means the original John Williams soundtrack accompanies your play (100 paylines from 60p a spin) and images of stars like Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman, and Margot Kidder. The Daily Planet logo - Clark Kent's place of work - and a lump of Kryptonite complete the symbols plus the usual playing card icons.

Superman himself is the biggest payer, triggering a 500x line bet jackpot if you land five symbols in a row. Look out for the soaring Superman logo which acts as the game's Wild. This substitutes for all regular icons in the game other than the two bonus Scatter symbols.

Locked Symbols For The 'Save The Day' Free Spins Feature

There are free spins featured in Superman The Movie when you land three bonus FREE GAMES icons on Reels 1, 3 and 5. You start off with 10 'Save The Day' free spins. However, if the Wild appears during the feature it will stay locked for the duration of the whole feature. Once those 10 are over you receive a further 10 spins with those Wilds in place.

Look out for the frozen Crystal Bonus icons. When they land on Reels 2, 3 and 4 (the central reels) you get to play a Pick Me bonus round. Choose special crystals (from Superman's Fortress of Solitude)to reveal prizes including cash, multipliers and 'bonus restarts'. These bad boys will kick-start the bonus round all over again. A green crystal ends the round, but a further Superman logo will make the crystal - Superman's 'guide' in the original film - glow and kick into life.

Make It A DC Heroes Progressive

Like Playtech's Marvel jackpot slots, Superman The Movie features a linked DC Heroes progressive jackpot - which will presumably link across the other new DC slots once they hit the market. It's triggered randomly after any base game spin and you can win of four progressive jackpots - Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand.

Like the Marvel games, the random progressive trigger will lead players to a grid of hidden symbols. All you need to do is pick from the 20 icons and match them to fill the jackpot meters.

Hit Marvel's Slots For Big Prizes

The new DC Comics tie-in is exciting, and we're particularly looking forward to trying Superman II (our personal favourite from the original film series). But if you're keen to hit some tried-and-trusted jackpot slots, hit up Marvel's progressive range. The Incredible Hulk, Fantastic Four, and Iron Man 2&3 are all superb slots with actual footage and images from the movie source plus a good range of bonus features.

Like those games, Superman The Movie is as volatile as the Man of Steel with a necklace of deadly Kryptonite but there's no doubt there's a tonne of action for players.

You'll Believe A Man Can Fly

Superman The Movie is an able entry into a new partnership for Playtech and Warner Bros./DC Comics. It might not quite have the bonus quality of a Wonder Woman or The Flash from Amaya/Cryptologic but for fans of the 1978 original film it's hard to beat.
