Superman is a superhero created by DC Comics and one of the most recognized in the industry. Cryptologic have partnered up with these guys and developed an exciting 50 pay-line slot machine game that features a number of cool and lucrative features. If you are familiar with Batman that is a similar game to this, you might already know what to expect. Otherwise proceed with reading our review about various aspects of this gambling game.

This game is a result of partnership with DC Comics, thus it’s purely based on the actual comic. Symbols include all the main characters from these such as Louis Lane, Clark Kent, his glasses and of course the Superman himself.
Given that 50 pay-lines is not all that common for slot games nowadays, the game plays in a quiet unorthodox manner. Wins are really frequent and I personally experienced a streak of 12 winnings spins in a row. You also have the option of either enabling or disabling the bonus features. To enable these, extra wager will be required.
You can trigger 10 free games with generous multiplier of between 2x and 5x. Every time Superman makes an appearance on the second, third and fourth reels, this feature will be enabled. The multipliers aren’t the only special extra feature during these free spins. Superman will also appear on one of the reels every time the reels are spun and expand to cover the whole reel, making it wild. Now, the multiplier was a quite generous gesture, but this is the real deal. The expanding wild will pretty much guarantee that every spin you make will be a winning one, especially when appearing on the second reel.
This feature is triggered whenever 3 scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels and allows you to save the world by being the Superman himself. You’ll be taken to a second screen visualizing earth and your goal is to capture missiles that are about to hit it. After you’ve done that, try to capture the evil Lex Luthor too. You can win up to 100 times your initial spin bet in this feature meaning the maximum win is $120,000 as maximum bet is $1,200 per spin!
Our Thoughts on the Game
Definitely a well done job by Cryptologic and this game is really similar to other release from the DC Comic slots – Batman. It seems like they both use the same framework, but differ in a couple of features.
I enjoyed the free spins feature most even though 10 free games aren’t all that many, the 2-5x multipliers and expanding wilds make it quite lucrative.
Overall, I’d rate this game as 9/10 given the storyline and my initial thoughts of what it should be like and the actual product (game) that I tried out.
