You’ll Have My Permission To Spin
Many of the play features present in The Dark Knight Rises don’t do much to shake things up, however a few of them will hit you with some big wins. The wild symbols, being the Batman logo, don’t do much unfortunately - if you roll one on reel 3, it will expand across the whole reel, possibly completing some otherwise un-achieved paylines.
A randomly triggered feature has been added to this slot which can save otherwise failed spins - if you’re left with no wins after a spin, there is a chance you’ll activate “Symbol Scramble” which will shuffle all the symbols possibly resulting a minor - or even major - payout.
The Slot Gotham Needs
The main attraction here, like in the film, is the conflict between Bane and Batman. Occasionally, a random fight event is triggered wherein the two combatants appear on your screen and trade punches. Each hit adds a number of free spins to the Fight Meter, which will be activated once the two masked men stop whacking each other. You’ll also get some other bonuses based on how many of these free spins you accumulate. The more solid multipliers start coming your way after you hit the 25 mark, but even before that those free spins can easily rack up some bonuses.
Whenever the free spins are triggered after a fight, you’ll be able to pick from one of the two main characters; Batman and Bane; each offering different bonuses. Bane will break any winning symbols, which then get replaced. Batman, on the other hand will exchange some symbols for wilds. Both have the potential to secure a massive payout, but in our experience you’ll have better luck betting on Bane.
The level of excitement this slot has to offer depends on how much time you’re willing to invest into it. Early on, it’s pretty slow and uneventful, which some players might find to be frustrating. However, once the action picks up and you’re racking up those free spin multipliers, you’ll find yourself on the edge of your seat - if you last that long.
The Dark Knight Rises is a potentially fun and rewarding slot that just needs some time to come into its own. Its basic features aren’t anything to write home about, but the free spins can leave you with massive multiples of your original bet if you’re patient.
