Playing the Free Batman Themed Pokies Game

  • It comes with 2 bonus features and 4 progressive jackpots. This feature means that in each single slot-play a small amount of your bet and that of thousands of others is placed into a massive progressive jackpot amount. Both your wagers and the wagers of thousands of others are placed into this massive pot. The large coverage span means that these slot jackpots can get pretty large quickly. At times, they can pay off more than $1 million in slot payouts!
  • Batman is joined on the reels by Boy-Wonder Robin and The Joker. All three characters can land-stacked with Batman being the most rewarding, offering payouts of up to 500-coins. Instead of playing cards, the symbols with lower value all relate to the TV series. They include the bat boomerang, chattering false teeth, the famous utility belt, a fake pistol, the Batbike, the Batmobile, and the trusty Batarang folding knife.
  • The Joker smile logo and the Batman logo are the only 2 wilds in the game. The wilds are the highest-value symbols allowing you to cross over multiple lines. This can offer you more winning lines by letting one tile act as many values. Both substitute for all other symbols except the scatter and offer payouts of up-to 2,500 coins. Just 2 on a pay-line will offer you a payout, albeit of only 2 coins. You can get 100 times your stake paid with the wilds if you get five on a payline.

Summary Thoughts

Playtech has developed yet another cracker pokie in Batman and The Joker Jewels. The visuals and sound have a strong 1960s feel, complete with a few classic scenes from the TV show. Besides, the game play stacks up rather well with both the free spins with multipliers and added wilds offering some solid winning potential. I always loved playing the Aristocrat pokies game but i must say this is a top free play slot option.
