Last June 28th, Microgaming launched the hotly anticipated The Dark Knight video slot game to overwhelming positive reviews.
It has been reported that even though The Dark Knight progressive slot has only just been released for less than a month, it's been getting rave reviews from both slot players and film fans "who feel that not only is it fun to play, but that it also true to the spirit of the film".
Reviewers have commented on the fantastic in-fame features and stunning graphics. One reviewer even commented that "the visual effect is so well done - if you're afraid of heights it just might make you queasy!"
In fact from the looks of things the Dark Knight slot could be on its way to becoming one of the most popular slots of all time.
This news follows after the world premiere of the third and final Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, which took in $161 million during its opening weekend, making it the third-biggest opening ever after The Avengers and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2.
Batman The Dark Knight is a 243 ways-to-win slot game based on the Warner Bros. Pictures hit. Players can enable Cinematic Spins to view clips from the film after every spin. Other features include stacked Batman Wilds where all five stacked wilds on all reels wins the player 4,000,000 coins, 15 Free Spins starting at a 2x multiplier and 4 progressive jackpots (Mega, Major, Minor and Mini). As of writing the Mega jackpot is at £1,020,714.
Microgaming's CEO, Roger Raatgever said of the game: "We are extremely excited about the launch of 'The Dark Knight' video slot and the on-going success of our relationship with DC Entertainment. At Microgaming, we believe in pursuing partnerships that will result in the creation of the best quality content for our games portfolio. We have collaborated closely with DC Entertainment over the past few months in the development of a dynamic and realistic tribute to the blockbuster movie brand of 'The Dark Knight.' Fans of DC Comics and the film series will not be disappointed as their favourite heroes and villains are brought to life on the reels of this exciting new slot game."
The Dark Knight video slot replaced The Lord of the Rings video slot from its slot game line up.
From the award-winning film by Warner Bros Pictures and DC Comics, Microgaming presented an online slot game based on The Dark Knight movie. With 243 ways to win and an abundance of action-packed bonus features, The Dark Knight, with Cinematic Spins, immerses the player in the original blockbuster experience.
In addition to the 243 ways to win, The Dark Knight comes with the four progressive jackpots you are already familiar with from the world-famous Mega Moolah! This makes The Dark Knight truly a slot with mega proportions. The jackpot appears randomly just as it does in Mega Moolah. You simply spin the progressive wheel and go for the mage jackpot, which currently sits at around $2.1 million!
In fact, within a week of the launch of The Dark Knight the jackpot has risen about half a million dollars. That's quite amazing.
