Superman II Progressive Slot Review

The second slot in the DC Jackpot series is also the second film in the famous Superman series of films from the 1970s and 80s and you can play the slot right now at Bet365 Casino. In Superman II, Christopher Reeve’s eponymous hero gives up his super powers for his true love, Lois Lane, only to discover that three villains from his past on Krypton, General Zod, Ursa and Non have been freed from their Phantom Zone prison and are now intent on raising hell on Earth and in particular on the son of their nemesis, Jor El, father of Superman.

This fantastic slot version by Playtech captures the mood of the film superbly. All the key characters are included on the 5×3 reels and there are a total of 25 paylines in play, which gives you a minimum bet of just £0.25 while you can ramp up the action to £25 per spin if you prefer. Add to this the backdrop of Metropolis City and the stirring soundtrack from John Williams and you have a slot that looks as good as the film.

There’s the usual playing card low symbols on the reels from Jack through to Ace, while the characters and artefacts from the film are the higher value symbols. The Superman symbol acts as the in game Wild and substitutes for all the high and low value symbols to create wins and in addition, you can land up to 5,000 coins if you manage to land five of the Wild symbols on a single payline on a single spin. However, what really makes Superman II such a great game to play is the myriad of bonus features, so let’s take a closer look at them now. Remember, this game is available to play now at Bet365 Casino.

Superman II Bonus Features

The first key bonus feature is the Superman Wild bonus, which can occur on any spin in the game and when it does, Superman will fly across the reels turning 2, 3 or 4 randomly selected symbols Wild, offering you the chance of a win, or a bigger win if you already have hit a win on that spin.

To access all the other bonus games you need to land the Daily Planet Scatter symbol on the first, third and fifth reels on a single spin. When you do, you trigger the feature which starts with you randomly stopping the selector as it goes through five different Newspaper headlines, each of which translates into a different bonus game.

In the Battle for Metropolis, you select from shields to reveal cash prizes, a special item or a collect symbol, which ends the game unless you have collected the green crystal symbol which cancels the next collect selected. Select the X-Ray symbol and you automatically collect all prizes available behind the shields and earn the top prize.

In the Phantom Zone bonus, you receive unlimited free spins and you see a Phantom Zone occupy a 2×2 symbol square on the reels. All symbols contained in the Phantom Zone are Wild. At the bottom of the screen the Super Hero reel also spins awarding you either a 2x or 3x multiplier, a Superman Symbol which can be used to stop the game ending, or the game ending symbol which ends the bonus round.

Skyline Fight bonus sees players receive 10 free spins and a 1x multiplier, however if Superman lands on reel three, the Free Games counter stops and you have unlimited free spins. Land a further Superman symbol on the reels while the free games counter is unlimited and you will increase the multiplier each time up to 5x. However, if General Zod lands on the third reel, then he resets the multiplier to 1x and unfreezes the free spins counter.

XRay Vision bonus is simply a 15 free spins round where the XRay appearing anywhere on reel 3 will become a Wild symbol and you also have two additional Wild symbols on reels 2 and 4 for the duration of the bonus game.

Finally, the Lois and Clark Bonus is a pick me game where you collect shields of certain colours to trigger different prizes. There are four levels to collect, with prizes increasing from the lowest Level 4 to the highest Level 1.

Remember too, at any time on the slot you can trigger the Jackpot Bonus game, another pick me game where you pick from shields to win one of the four big DC Jackpot prizes on offer,  Mini, Minor, Major and Grand.


Editor's Review

Part of the new DC Jackpot series of games, Superman II is very much in the same vein as Superman The Movie slot and will be instantly recognisable to anybody that has played the other game. However this new slot boasts 25 paylines and a massive selection of bonus games to unlock as you play through the slot. With a stirring soundtrack, not to mention a chance to win the DC Jackpot on every spin, this is a slot that is destined to fly to the top of people’s must play charts in no time at all.
