The software runs very smoothly. It is also very user-friendly. Players can set the game speed to one of three levels without exiting the game or opening any menu. The highest speed does away with the spinning of the reels altogether. The Auto Play also has several advanced features. The coin size can be set within the Auto Play. The Auto Play can be automatically terminated if certain specified conditions are reached. The usual options of enabling or disabling sound affects and play voices are also available.
Easy to Understand (10)
The rules and the pay table are easy to understand.
Graphics & Sounds (9)
The sound has not been very effectively used, which is surprising since Batman is an action game. The graphics are adequate. The animated introductory clip, the animations in the Batman and the Joker symbols and some of the animations in the bonus games are excellent.
Theme and Concept (10)
Batman is one of the most popular superheroes and this is bound to be a popular theme. The execution of the theme leaves nothing to be desired. Batman fans will find every detail to their liking. All the symbols on the reels are intricately linked to the Batman legend. The conflict between Batman and the Joker is started in the introductory clip itself. It carries on through the spins and culminates in the bonus feature. This slot game has been total justice to the Batman brand.
Game Features (9)
Batman is slightly lacking in the use of the wild and scatter symbols. The wild symbol does not offer any payouts nor does it multiply payouts. Also it does not appear on all five reels. Its major advantage is that it appears as stacked wilds. The scatter symbol is constrained to appear left to right and is therefore not really a scatter symbol. However, these drawbacks are largely made up by the bonus features. Both the Batman re-spins feature and the Descent into Madness feature are excellent. The innovative Bonus Bet is the icing on the cake.
Betting Options (10)
Though players are constrained to wager only one coin for payline, the betting range in the Batman slot game is amazing. It starts at 0.01 credits and goes all the way to 1200.00 credits. This is because of the 50 paylines and the large coin size range.
The jackpots are the weakest link in this slot game. There is no progressive jackpot. The fixed jackpots are also not very satisfactory. The highest fixed jackpot does pay 2000 coins, but the next one falls directly to 200 coins.
