Playtech loves playing with superheroes, as evidenced once again in Batman & The Riddler Riches. Slot inspired by camp 1960’s TV series uses the original TV footage to present main characters, Adam West as Batman, Burt Ward as Robin and Frank Gorshin as the Riddler. While everybody’s surely well familiar with the hero and his sidekick, Riddler’s character might be a puzzle.
Conveniently so, as this fictional supervillain is obsessed with riddles, puzzles and word games, often leaving them as clues for the Batman and the police to announce his crimes. He’s usually shown wearing a domino mask, green suit and bowler hat, or tight spandex outfit with question mark prints. As Batman and Robin fight one of their most enduring enemies, you could benefit from generous wins provided by collapsing reels, mystery symbols, sticky wilds, multipliers, or one of 4 progressive jackpots.
The three main characters are game’s highest paying symbols, followed by Policeman, Riddler’s Hat & Gloves, Batman’s Belt and Statue. While TV shots are used to portray the first four, all other visuals are executed in the old comic book style faithful to the original DC comics the TV series was inspired by. Batman, the Riddler and Robin icons can appear as single symbols, 2-symbol high and 3-symbol high stacks on all reels. Wild is depicted as the Batman logo and substitutes for all symbols except Scatter.
Batman & The Riddler Riches is a 5-reel and 243 ways to win slot, allowing you to bet from €0.25 to €60 per spin. Your total bet per game round is the coin value ×25. To win, 3 or more identical symbols need to appear anywhere on consecutive reels, from left to right. If at any time you want to concentrate on what reels are delivering, Autoplay function will do the spinning up to 25 times for you. Reels are moving pretty fast as is, but if you want to make them even faster, turn Turbo Mode on.
Any winning combination will result in collapsing reels, causing the symbols participating in the win to disappear. New ones will then take their place and potentially form another winning combo. The action will continue until no other matching combinations are delivered.
Mystery Spins can be triggered at any time during the main game. The Riddler will add mystery symbols to the reels, which you’ll see transforming into same icons to provide a win.
Green Bonus symbol on reels 1, 2 and 3 will trigger Batman vs The Riddler Bonus Wheel and you’ll get to spin the wheel to win one of 3 “riddlerific” features. One is Multiplier Free Games awarding Multipliers for successive collapsing waves. Wave 2 wins will be doubled, wave 3 wins tripled and x5 Multiplier applied for all wins achieved during wave 4 and all successive waves. When a collapse doesn’t create any wins, the Multiplier will return to x1 and the next free spin will begin.
Alternatively, Bonus Wheel can award The Riddler Box Bonus. You’ll need to open the boxes to match 3 identical cash values and win the respective prize. A new selection screen will then appear, again displaying 12 boxes. Next 3 matching ones will deliver Multiplier which will boost the amount revealed earlier. Third bonus option is Sticky Wilds Free Games which, if activated, randomly land Wild icons on the reels and keep them there up to wave 3.
Finally, there are 4 mystery progressive jackpots, linked to the DC Super Heroes series of games. They can be won randomly on any spin, winning or losing. The higher your bet, the greater your chance to win it. If you manage to trigger the jackpot game, you are guaranteed to win one of the four.
The Riddler is the most valuable base game icon, paying up to 500 coins. While this will probably not make you super-excited, keep in mind win amounts can pile up thanks to the collapsing reels and get multiplied through various features. The most attractive wins are, however, provided by the randomly awarded progressive jackpots. Seed is €100 for Mini, €1,000 for Minor, €10,000 for Major and €200,000 for Grand Jackpot. The reported RTP with the DC Super Heroes Progressive Jackpot is 96.09% and without it 95.10%.
Fighting crime can be lucrative, or not – depends on how lucky you get with bonus rounds. Batman & The Riddler Riches is a fun and dynamic slot which will let you win often enough and frequently benefit from the collapsing reels feature. As with all other DC Super Heroes slots in the series, we love the execution of Batman theme. It’s one of the reasons to give this game a try, even if you only win modest amounts. But who knows, the Grand Jackpot might end up yours, prompting you to use Robin’s line: “Holy gambles, Batman!”
