Superman Slot Review, RTP & Free Play
NextGen Gaming were the first casino software developer to make ground on the Superman-themed slot. Their title was produced quite a few years back now, and because of that it looks dated. The comic book style of the game makes it stand out from Playtech’s more recent movie-inspired Superman slots. Perfect for any fan of the comic book franchise, Superman features many of the more memorable characters from the series, including Clark Kent, Lois Lane and Lex Luther.
Look & Feel
The developers of this slot have paid special attention to the way the reels and the menu bars look. You get your standard NextGen Gaming betting options here, but in a manner, which makes it fit with the comic book theme of the game.
Coin values can be adjusted in this game, even if the 50 paylines cannot. By adjusting the value of your stakes, you can bet anything from a base minimum of 50p per spin up to a capped maximum wager of £100 per spin. However, there is a Bonus Bet mode which is worth looking at if you want to trigger a secondary bonus round. This will raise your stakes from 60p per spin up to £120 a game.
Superman himself appears as the game’s wild symbol, which naturally means he can substitute for any other symbols in the game, save for special symbols. Wilds will also double the value of any winning combinations in which they appear.
Free Spins Bonus: If a Superman wild symbol lands on the second, third and fourth reels during a single base game spin, a free spins bonus will be triggered in this game. It offers players a basic 10 free spins, but Superman wilds can appear stacked throughout this feature, ramping up your odds of winning. Moreover, Superman stacked wilds can bolster the amount you can win, courtesy of random multiplier which can be worth up to 5x the normal rate of pay.
Save the World Bonus: This feature is only triggerable if you have placed a Bonus Bet wager. Three or more Superman scatter logos appearing on the reels during a single spin will not only offer you scattered wins, but also activate the Save the World bonus. Here, players can shoot down a meteor to win a cash prize, followed by Lex’s missiles to pocket more goodies. Lastly, Superman must crack 1 of 3 safes to win a final payout. Good money can be had in this feature, but before of the Kryptonite, as it ends the feature.
The Superman scatter logo is always the best-paying symbol in the game, whether you have a Bonus Bet in play or not. It can deliver wins worth up to 5,000 coins (or 100x your total bet) if 5 appear anywhere on the reels in this game, which carries an RTP rate of 95.41%.
It is always a bit harsh having to pay a little extra for a bonus feature and to be fair, NextGen Gaming doesn’t do it often. However, in the case of their Superman slot, the added bonus bet is totally worth it, as the Save for the World feature caps off a great playing experience.
