Microgaming Releases Dark Knight Rises Slot Game

This weekend, many online slot players will be enjoying playing a brand new slot game from Microgaming. The leading casino software provider released the much anticipated “The Dark Knight Rises” game on Friday, and all signs point to it being a huge success. It is the sequel to a previous game, “Dark Knight”, which has been incredibly popular with players.

Microgaming has a licensing agreement with DC Comics – the company behind many comic superheroes, including Batman. “The Dark Knight Rises” slot is based on the movie of the same name, the latest in the Batman series, and contains all the leading characters. Slot enthusiasts and Batman fans are unlikely to be disappointed with the game, which also includes a number of video clips from the movie.

The five reel slot game offers 243 different ways to win and there a load of features to keep things interesting. There are expanding wilds, split wilds (which can result in a six-of-a-kind win) and free spins. With the randomly triggered “Symbol Scramble” feature even losing spins can be turned into winning spins, as all the symbols are shuffled around to create the best winning combination possible.

When the free spins feature is activated, Batman and Bane appear on the screen and a series of fighting sequences take place. The number of free spins received and the level of the win multiplier is set based on these sequences. Once the free spins have been awarded, players must choose whether to play them as Batman or Bane. This choice determines which additional features appear in the spins, such as “Rolling Reels” or “Heat Seeking Wilds”.

Many online casinos using Microgaming software have already launched this new slot game and most are expected to at some point in the very near future. Microgaming will no doubt be hoping that it is at least as popular as the previous game, and all the early signs suggest that it will be.
