The Green Lantern Progressive Slot Review

Before he took on the role of Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds first venture into the realms of Superheroes was in the 2011 film The Green Lantern. Although the film was a Box Office flop, it didn’t stop Reynolds from following his love of the genre and taking on the role of another Superhero a few years later. However, the new DC Progressive Slot by Playtech is based on his original film and the great news for slot players is that while the original blockbuster may have fallen short of expectation; the slot itself offers players a thrilling ride.

The game is a 5×3 reel slot which has a total of 243-ways to win across the reels. The Green Lantern flies just to the left of the reels and interacts with the player as they spin and hit winning combinations and other bonus features. The slot also features Collapsing Reels which sees any symbols involved in a win disappear and then new symbols drop down from above to replace them, potentially triggering new wins from the same spin. Every time you trigger a collapsing reel win, you charge the power bar which is later used in the Free Spin bonus missions.

The Green lantern boasts playing card symbols as the lower value symbols in the game and higher value symbols are characters taken from the movie, the highest paying character being the Green Lantern who offers up to 500 coins for five across the reels. To help you achieve more base game wins there are Wild symbols on the reels which appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only and which can substitute for all symbols to create winning paylines. Trigger four or more consecutive Collapsing Reel wins and you will trigger one of three bonus missions, the mission you play depending on the size of the charge you generate from consecutive collapses. You can play the Green Lantern slot now at Bet365 Casino.

The Green Lantern Bonus Features

The first bonus feature is the Fear Fight Mission which sees a new wild Stacking Wilds appear on the reels. These stack from the bottom of the reels upwards for the duration of the free spins round once landed. You have unlimited free spins and the round only ends when the reels are covered with Stacking Wilds. The higher your charge when you activate this round, then the greater the number of Stacking Wilds you can land to increase the value of your win.

The Training Centre Mission awards a player 10 Free Spins with additional Wilds added to the reels. The size of the charge you have when you enter this bonus game will decide how many Wilds you have and the type of Wilds you will find added to the reels. Charge 1 has Grenade Wilds, Charge 2 has Missile Wilds and Charge 3 has Punch Wilds. The game will continue until all your free spins have been completed.

The final bonus game is the Secret Sector Mission which awards you 10 free spins with a bonus called a Dynamic Win Multiplier. The Charge you have earned to enter the round will determine the size of your initial multiplier and how much your multiplier will increase when you land a Collapsing Reels win in the base game. Charge 1 sees an initial multiplier of 2x and you will increase that by 1 with each consecutive collapse. Charge 2 also sees an initial 2x multiplier, but each time you hit a collapse you will increase the multiplier by 2. Charge 3 sees an initial multiplier of 3x and each consecutive collapse will increase that multiplier by 2.


Editor's Review

The original film, starring Ryan Reynolds, was a bit of a disappointment at the box office, but the Green Lantern slot is anything but. He may not be as famous or as instantly recognisable as Superman, but Green Lantern is a worthy addition to the DC Progressive series. The slot is packed to the brim with features including three missions, all of which offer players a chance of a very healthy payday. Add to that the Progressive Jackpot being randomly awarded in the base game and a host of other features and you have a slot that ticks all the right boxes and kicks the opposition into touch.
