DC Comics fans, this one is for you. The Justice League pokie from NextGen has all the original superheroes, including favourites such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, and Green Lantern.
Yes, all of them in one game. Set against the cityscape background of Metropolis, Justice League is a 5-reel 25-payline video pokie, with various features like free game, free spins and bonus features. Especially hot are the Team Rescue and the Attack on Metropolis features, which we will explain in detail in this review.
Justice League is a pretty straightforward pokie and getting started is a piece of cake. Set your coin size via the coins icon on the left side of the screen – minimum is $0.01, although minimum total bet is $0.30, because the number of paylines you can bet on is fixed at the maximum of 25 paylines. After setting your coin size, there is nothing more to change and you’re ready to hit the Spin button. You can of course also opt for the Autoplay option, where you can set the pokie to spin by itself – all the way up to 100 spins.
The symbols you need to look out for are:
Wild Symbol – this one is easy. It says ‘Wild’ on it. It only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and can substitute all symbols, except for the Scatter.
Scatter Symbol – this is the ‘Daily Planet Bonus’ symbol. This also only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4, and getting 3 of them will multiply your bet by 60x.
High value symbols – the three highest value symbols in descending order are Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman.
Coin size at Justice League begins at just $0.01, however note that minimum bet per spin is $0.30. This is because you must bet on all 25 paylines. Maximum coin size is $2.00, making it $60 per spin. It’s not the cheapest game out there, but isn’t out of reach for casual players who are watching their budget either.
With an RTP of 96.5%, Justice League is known as a medium variance slot. In plain English it means that while payouts are not going to come at every other spin, you will win and when you do, it’s a relatively nice sum of money.
A non-progressive pokie, Justice League won’t turn you into a millionaire. The pokie has a basic jackpot of 300 coins can be won when you spin 5 Superman symbols – this might not sound like a lot, however, with all the multipliers available, the real maximum win can be 2,400x, which isn’t too shabby.
The Justice League pokie is faithful to the original super heroes, and has a nice comic strip feeling to it. Wins can have super heroes taking over the screen and the soundtrack keeps the adrenaline pumping.
We have to say we were a bit annoyed with the flashing on the Info screen, and it’s no doubt in reference to the blinding superness of the super heroes, but sometimes it’s a bit annoying when you are trying to read.
Justice League has several special features, which is where the real money really lies. Here’s the lowdown.
Team Rescue: At any point, a symbol of reels 2, 3 or 4 can suddenly change into a wild symbol. That practically means you get an extra chance at winning with every spin.
Daily Planet Bonus: Also serves as the scatter icon. The Daily Planet Bonus can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, and if you spin 3 of them, you multiply your bet by 60x. That’s pretty lucrative.
Super Hero Power Up: This feature is triggered when you get the same super hero symbol down all of reel 1 and the symbol also appears at least once on a payline. In this feature, reel 5 will mirror reel 1, and the triggering super hero symbol in all reels remains locked, along with any wild symbols. The reels are then re-spun, until you stop triggering more wilds or the same super heroes. What this means is that your chances of winning the jackpot in this feature are huge.
Attack on Metropolis: Spin 3 scatter symbols to trigger this feature, which comes with 10 free games. Extra wilds and free games are dished out during the Attack – you can be playing for free for a really long time here. And that’s not all – collected wilds will charge your meter for Super Hero free spins.
Super Hero Spins: Immediately after Attack on the Metropolis, you’ll head into Super Hero Spins. These are pumped up free spins, because reels 1 and 5 are mirrored, and if a Wild symbol is involved in your win, then there’s also a 10x multiplier.
Gamble Feature: After any win, you have the option to take a risk with the Gamble feature. Guess the right color and suit of the cards and you can double or quadruple your win.
While the jackpot isn’t huge, Justice League is a solid little pokie with plenty of bonus features, multipliers and free games to make players from all walks of life happy. Of course, DC Comics fans will especially love the game as it features the original characters Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash and Aquaman. Make sure you give it a shot.
