Billed as both a successor to The Dark Knight pokie and a game that is based on the film of the same name, this pokie is a visual feast and one that also has a big feature or two. Available on Jackpot City and other big casinos, this is one of the star pokies on the Microgaming roster.
The graphics are not 3D, but they are close. There are stills and videos from the film and the symbols are also animated when in a payline. The dark and ominous aesthetics fit perfectly with the theme and are sure to please fans of the franchise.
This 5 reel slot doesn’t have a very wide pay scale, with the minimum bet at $0.01 and the maximum bet at $0.05. There are 243 ways to win. no shortage of wild symbols and there is also a maximum payout of close to 2 million coins, an impressive amount for a non-progressive lot.
The best feature on The Dark Knight Rises is a free spins round that occurs on the same reels as the base game. This game begins when Batman and Bane appear onscreen and begin to slug it out. Whether you’re a fan of the Caped Crusader or not, in this fight you will be cheering for both of them, because whenever one lands a punch you’ll get free spins, and whenever the other lands a punch you’ll get a multiplier. The free spins round begins when the fight ends.
A great pokie and one that does the film franchise proud. We prefer this to the original Dark Knight pokie, because even without the addition of a progressive jackpot, it still offers so much more than its predecessor.
