If there is one superhero that has remained popular throughout the ages, both in comics and film, then it is Batman. More recent stories involving the Dark Knight, such as Superman Vs Batman, or Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, have been slightly darker, more brooding films perhaps more in tune with the original line of the first comic books involving Bruce Wayne and his alter-ego.

Now there’s nothing wrong with these films at all, many are outstanding works but prior to these series and the other series of Batman films from the 80s and 90s, there was a TV series that became immensely popular in the 1960s. The TV series starred Adam West as Batman and Burt Ward as Robin and was known for its campness and humour as much as the heroes themselves.

It is this fabulous era for Batman that is celebrated in the outstanding new series of slots that make up the Batman progressive series of games from Playtech, which you can play right now at the popular Bet365 Casino.

It has been a busy time for new progressive slot games with some older games, including the Marvel Superheroes series of slots and the Mega Moolah Dark Knight slot, all being phased out. To replace them we have had the new series of Greek mythology themed slots, Ages of the Gods and now there is this new sextet of Batman games to try out.

How can I win the progressive jackpot?

The good news is that on any of the six Batman games which we will outline in more detail below, you can win one of the four progressive jackpots on any spin and at any time. The jackpot pool is linked to all six games in the series, so regardless of which one you play, or how much you wager per spin, you still could trigger the jackpot game.

The progressive jackpot game is simply a Pick Me game where you are shown a selection of 20 icons. Each icon hides a colour that relates to one of the four jackpots. Two Green Icons selected wins you the Mini jackpot, three blues hits the Minor jackpot, four yellow icons gets you the Major jackpot. Finally, five reds selected and that life-changing Grand jackpot is yours.

Let’s now take a closer look at each of the six games that make up the Batman progressive series offering you a chance at the DC Super Heroes jackpot. Remember, you can play all of these games direct from your mobile device as well via a laptop/PC or similar.

Batman and The Joker Jewels

Cesar Romero played the joker in the 1960s series and his character is Batman’s nemesis in the Batman and the Joker Jewels slot. The game features the usual 5×3 reel set up with 25 paylines in play. Of all the slots in the series, this is arguably the most traditional game, but it does pack some interesting and innovative features.

There’s the Joker’s Random Wilds bonus which can be hit on any base game spin and will see up to nine symbols on the reels turn Wild to offer you the chance of a bigger win. There’s also a great bonus game Batman v The Joker Free Games which sees a multiplier worth up to 5x the original win available on all free spins and the round does not end until the player reaches the end of the Bat-Tastic Multiplier Meter, meaning you could have an unspecified number of free spins.

Batman & The Riddler Riches

Riddle me this… What slot offers 5×3 reels and a chance to play without paylines but instead offers 243 ways to win on every spin, starting at just £0.25 per game, up to a maximum bet of £60? That would be the exciting Batman and The Riddler Riches slot which also features the exciting Collapsing Reels feature, where the symbols fall down from above and winning paylines disappear, replaced by new symbols which can then trigger additional wins from the same spin.

While the Collapsing Reels feature is a massive part of the base game there is also the Mystery Reels bonus which can be triggered which will see the Riddler turn selected symbols into the same symbol to guarantee a win. Furthermore, three scatters triggers the Batman v Riddler Bonus wheel, where you can win a chance to play one of three additional bonus games.

Batman & Catwoman Cash

Of all the villains that conflicted Batman, none did moreso than the Catwoman and in the Batman and Catwoman Cash slot, this 5×3 reel and 25 payline slot offers players a chance to spin from just £0.25 up to a maximum of £500 per spin. There’s a jackpot of 10,000 coins to be won in the base game, in addition to the progressives, which is something that all jackpot hunters will certainly take note of.

The game also features a couple of other bonuses including the Cat Burglar bonus, which sees players win either an instant cash prize, or the multiplier they receive in the Free Games feature will be increased in value. During this feature, you can win up to 25 free spins, with an initial 2x multiplier and during which Super Stacked Symbols are in play to help you land a bigger win. Once Free Spins have finished, you can then win another prize, either a 2x multiplier on your next 24 base game spins, or an additional cash lump sum.

Batman & The Penguin Prize

This unusual looking slot celebrates Burgess Meredith’s portrayal of The Penguin in the TV series. In this slot there are two sets of three reels for six slots in total, however during the initial base game, only the three reels on the left are spun. If you land a winning line from this spin, then the Penguin’s Respin reel is spun on the right up to a maximum three times. If you hit another winning line on this reel, then on the second respin, you receive bumper sized icons of 2×2 and then if you win again, on the third and final respin the symbols are a huge 3×3 in size.

You can play from £0.25 up to £125 per spin on a slot that offers a unique challenge not just in the Batman progressive series, but when compared to all other slots too.

Batman & Mr Freeze Fortune

You can play up to 1024 ways to win across the 5×3 reel slot with the Batman and Mr Freeze Fortune game. Batman’s icy nemesis offers a great chance for higher rollers to enjoy a few spins with wagers starting at £1 per spin and scalable up to £5,000 per spin.

The key bonus feature of the slot is Mr Freeze Polar Prize Vault, which offers a choice of transforming symbols, freezing Wilds, respins and Multiplier Wilds of up to 10x. The Batman v Mr Freeze bonus game offers up to 15 free spins and a huge 2,400 ways to win on each free spin. Furthermore, you can increase the multiplier paid on winnings in the bonus feature up to 25x the standard win.

Batman & The Batgirl Bonanza

Although less famous than Robin, Batgirl is Batman’s other sidekick and she gets her own slot which features a less conventional reel set of four individual reels on the left of the screen in a 2×2 matrix and three larger reels on the right.

There are 60-paylines in play across the reels and wagers start at £0.30 and can be increased up to £30 per spin. Land four of the same symbols on the 2×2 reel set and you trigger the BatGirl respin feature, which locks the reels and spins the other reels to potentially increase the size of your win by adding more symbols to the payline. You can also trigger the Batman Team Up Free Game bonus which sees up to 25 spins awarded and which places 2×2 super symbols on the first reels offering you a better chance of a bigger win.

All six of these hugely enjoyable Batman slot games are now available to play at Bet365 Casino, and with the biggest progressive jackpot prize already riding at around the £250,000 mark, what else do you need to persuade you to give this exciting new progressive jackpot slots series a try?
