Microgaming struck gold with Batman Begins and The Dark Knight video slots. They've now worked their magic on the third installment, The Dark Knight Rises. It includes 5 highly detailed reels that make full use of 243 win-ways and a collection of all new features. Rise!
Batman - The Dark Knight Rises Theme
The current run of Batman films has reset the benchmark for the caped crusader. He’s darker, colder and far more human than any Batman before him (and most probably has Ben Afleck feeling a little apprehensive). This slot has the same gritty and edgy feel as the films, it’s visually impressive and comes complete with countless animations and real photography from the film.
Each reel icon offers a cutscene from the film that is linked to the character featured on it. These icons include Bane, Batman, Catwoman, Miranda, Blake (Robin) and Jim Gordon. Other icons include The Dark Knight Rises logo, bomb and Dark Knight themed J, Q, K and A icons.
The stunning visuals are matched pound-for-pound by the soundtrack. The designers have used the same tunes and compelling music from the film, which builds intensity and suspense at the right moments.
Betting Options and More Functions
The Dark Knight is a 243-way slot, so we’d expected the betting range to be vast. Imagine how surprised we were to find a wide range of low bets spanning from 0.01 to $7.50 per spin. We really think this range is ideal for most gamblers, you can play for pennies or ramp things up if you want (plus we have a free The Dark Knight Rises slot too).
The Dark Knight Rises Slot Features
The Dark Knight Rises reel icons are wild and can substitute for any icon except the scattered bomb. Expanding wilds can also be triggered when appearing on reel 3, whilst splitting wilds are included during free spins.
During the main game Batman and Bain can start duking it out at random. Each flurry of punches and kicks will add free spins to the character throwing them. A multiplier is added to the victors counter, this can happen multiple times before the free spins are triggered when three or more bomb icons appear anywhere on screen. Before they start you will be asked to choose Bain or Batman who offer different bonuses;
- Choosing Bain will open up the chance for Rolling Reels, which can trigger multiple consecutive wins. Wilds are stacked during these spins too.
- Choosing Batman will offer wild blasts and the chance to benefit from splitting wilds.
Both free spin choices will be followed by another screen where you choose which icon will be your extra wild. The free spins then play to a compelling Dark Knight Rises music track.
Symbol scramble is yet another new feature that can be triggered randomly on any non-winning spin. This causes the screen to bulge before the icons pop out and scramble position to create winning combinations.
Our Take on The Dark Knight Rises
The graphics, spine tingling soundtrack and features really make this a slot that must be tried by all. The current rendition of Batman films came to a thrilling climax in 2012 but the legend lives on in The Dark Knight Rises video slot. It's brilliant.
