Renowned casino slot developer Microgaming officially released its latest Batman franchise slot in the form of The Dark Knight Rises this week.
Based on the blockbuster finale of the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises sees all the characters from the movie make an appearance to help make a slot that will be very popular with fans of the franchise. Read the Gamingslots full review of The Dark Knight Rises slot here.
Symbols in this slot include characters such as Batman, Bane, Catwoman, John Blake, Commissioner Gordon and Miranda Tate all popping up on the reels. This 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot also comes with Expanding Wilds and Split Wilds. The Expanding Wilds fill the whole reel and the Split Wilds will see the Wild symbol split and give players the chance to win with six of a kind.
This slot also comes with the Symbol Scramble feature that can be randomly triggered if you do not win on a spin. When triggered, the slot will scramble all the slots on the reels to attempt to complete any winning combinations that can be made with the symbols present on the reels.
The free spins in The Dark Knight Rises are also more intriguing than in its predecessor slot The Dark Knight. In The Dark Knight, there was a random prize generator. This has been evolved in this slot into a Free Spins Accumulator. If you do not win on a spin then this feature can be randomly triggered with Batman and Bane invading the screen to fight each other. As their fight progresses, free spins are added to the accumulator tally that will be added to the 10 initial free spins you are awarded when you trigger the free spins bonus round.
The free spins bonus round is triggered if you hit three or more Scatter symbols across the reels. You then have the option of playing the Batman Bonus or the Bane Bonus. Both bonus features offer different features such as the Rolling Reels with Super Stacked Wilds or the Extra Wild Blast with Heat-Seeking Wilds.
The Dark Knight Rises follows the very successful Dark Knight slot released by Microgaming in 2012.
