It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superman! With this lovely execution of journalist-turns-superhero story, NextGen complete their superheroes-themed slot collection featuring Batman, The Green Lantern and The Flash. This is, obviously, not the first video slot to portray the famous fictional character in a distinctive blue costume with a red-and-yellow emblem on his chest.
But is it better than others? Superman by NextGen certainly brings along a few interesting twists, along with a number of ways to win big. Whether you share his strong moral compass or not, fighting the supervillain Lex Luthor might prove to be as rewarding for you as it was for him.
Reels set against background of an exploding planet deliver many of the well familiar symbols. As in the original story, you’ll be chasing after Lex Luthor and trying to save Lois Lane. Other icons include the likes of Daily Planet Globe, Superman’s fist shooting forward when he’s about to take off and Clark Kent’s glasses.
Superman is your Wild and has the power to transform into any other icon except Scatter and Bonus. He’ll also double your wins in the base game and multiply them x5 while you’re spinning for free.
You’ll be playing a 5-reel, 50 paylines slot and bet $0.01 to $2 per line. On top, you have the option of activating Bonus Bet, which will increase your total stake by 20%. Read on to see why you should do this.
All wins begin with leftmost reel, paying left to right for adjacent symbols on a payline. Scatter and Bonus icons pay regardless of their positions. There is no MaxBet button but Autoplay is included and will let you enjoy up to 100 automatic spins.
When Superman lands on reels 2, 3 and 4, you’ll win 10 Free Games. During free spins, an expanded Superman can appear randomly on any of the reels. All wins he participates in will get multiplied by x5.
Superman Logo will be your Scatter or Bonus symbol, depending on Bonus Bet being active or not. If it’s not, you’ll only see Scatters which act as highest paying icons but provide no additional benefit. Having selected Bonus Bet, reels will spin Bonus symbols, 3 of which will activate Save The World feature.
You’ll be sent on a mission to bring Lex Luthor to justice. On your way to Earth, you’ll need to blast meteors and Lex’ heat missiles, each hit awarding cash prizes. Once you land, there will be three metal doors to choose from. Finding either Luthor or hostages will deliver an instant award. Try not to pick the door hiding Kryptonite as this will immediately end your bonus round. Eventually, you could win up to 100x your total bet.
While playing base game, you’ve got the option to multiply amounts won by using Gamble function. Choose red/black to double or a suit to quadruple your win.
Superman logo is a medium volatility game with an RTP of 95.41%. Superman logo, be it a Scatter or Bonus symbol, pays up to 5,000x your line bet, potentially cashing out $10,000. Superman Wild can deliver even more. It will pay 10,000x your line stake for 5 of a kind or as much as $20,000. Another chance to win big is given by the Save The World feature, with a win potential of 100x your total stake.
If you like superhero themed games, this is definitely one you should try out. It’s an aesthetically appealing package, with lovely graphics, bright colours and symbols drawn comic book style. Lovely animations take place when Superman Wild takes off the reels or when he heads for Earth, destroying meteors and missiles on the way. The two features are well incorporated into the story and deliver high win potential.
Starting bet of $0.5 might be a bit too much, while the max $120 stake ought to be high enough for those of you betting big. Medium variance can be increased with the help of the available Gamble function. If you liked this execution but prefer more volatile slots, try out NextGen’s Batman. Either way, you’ll get to enjoy superhero powers and earn fortunes while saving the mankind.
