The Marvel branded online pokies have been successfully replaced by the Age of the Gods series. However the latter are based on Greek mythology and not on superheroes. To make up for the superhero deficit after the withdrawal of Marvel pokies, Playtech introduced titles based on Batman and Superman. The three Superman branded pokies are reviewed here and can be played at online casinos like Mansion Casino and Omni Casino. All the Playtech DC Comics branded pokies are networked to the same multi-tier progressive jackpot.
The first Playtech pokie in this series is titled Superman the Movie. It has a 5×4 reels structure with 100 paylines. The online pokie has the two usual bonus features. In the free spins feature, when the wild Superman logo lands on the reels it remains fixed for the remainder of the feature. The Crystal Bonus is played on the second screen. You pick crystals and win bonuses. If you pick a multiplier then it will be applied to all payouts won till then. You keep picking till you reveal the Kryptonite.
In Superman II the Daily Planet logo is the symbol to watch out for. It randomly awards one of five bonus games. The Phantom Zone feature awards free spins with a randomly selected block of four spots on the reels having wild symbols. The feature can end after any free spin. The Skyline Flight feature awards 10 free spins. Superman stops the free spins counter and increases the payout multiplier. The villain restarts the free spins counter and resets the payout multiplier to 1. X Ray Vision feature awards 15 free spins. In these free spins the X Ray symbol is an additional wild and can add two additional wilds on reels 2 and 4.
Superman Man of Steel online pokie features shifting wilds, which Playtech has used in a few earlier titles. The Superman wild symbol shifts one reel to the right after each spin and the General Zod wild symbol shifts one reel to the left. If you happen to land both these symbols on the same row then the Battle for Earth free spins feature is triggered. When Superman and any of the villain symbols appear on the same row, they create more wilds. The free spins continue till Superman is defeated.
