The progressive jackpot on The Dark Knight slot has officially passed the $3.5 million mark, it was confirmed today.
The 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot was developed by Microgaming and is based on the 2008 Christopher Nolan-directed blockbuster that was the second instalment of the director’s trilogy of Batman movies. Symbols on the reels include the main characters from the film such as Batman, Bruce Wayne, Commissioner Gordon, The Joker, Rachel, Lau, Maroni, and the Mayor.
There is a free spins bonus round that is triggered if you hit three or more Joker/ Batman Mash Up Scatters across the reels. You will be rewarded with at least 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier. The Dark Knight logo also acts as a Stacked Wild during the free spins. There is the potential to trigger additional free spins and multipliers during the free spins bonus round by hitting the Batman and Joker symbols across the reels.
Players can win one of four progressive jackpots with the largest being the Mega Progressive. This is the jackpot that has just breached the $3.5 million, equivalent to £2.3 million or €2.9 million, and is still rising.
The other three progressive jackpots consist of the Major Progressive, the Minor Progressive, and the Mini Progressive. The Major Progressive seeds at $10,000 and is currently worth $22,000. The Minor Progressive begins at $100 and is currently valued at $138. The Mini Progressive starts at $10 and has reached $14.
All four of these progressive jackpots are triggered randomly. On every spin players have the opportunity to be taken to a second screen where they will have to spin a wheel split into different sections. Each section is linked to one of the four progressive jackpots.
The Dark Knight slot has proved to be such a successful title with slots players that it spawned the sequel slot The Dark Knight Rises that hit the market back in 2013.
