There is no shortage of superhero themed video slots, and for good reason. What’s more entertaining than following the adventures of these heroes as they help you conquer the reels and rake in big cash prizes? In addition to offering clever bonus features centered around DC Comics’ fast-moving hero, this game offers a wildly huge range of betting options to satisfy novices and high rollers alike.
The red and gold framed reels rest atop an image of Central City and bolts of lightning zig-zag off each side of the screen. Animated symbols come straight off the pages of The Flash comic books and the highest-valued icon is The Flash himself. Just below him in value are the three enemy characters in the game: Captain Cold, Gorilla Grodd and The Mirror Master. Mid-range symbols are a Flash icon, his legs moving and a speedometer. The lowest valued symbols are the J, Q, K and A.
Fast-paced movie tunes play throughout the bonus features, but the rest of the game utilizes mostly basic slot sound effects.
Any wins featuring the Flash Wild symbol are multiplied by up to 3X. In addition to this, Speedster Wilds can appear randomly as a big Flash figure races across the screen. In doing so, he turns one or many symbols Wild and then any wins are recalculated if the new Wild symbols create more winning paylines.
The Bonus Bet button is one way to liven up the game a little. Just play 50 lines, click it and see the background change from gray to pink as your wager increases by 10 extra coins. All your wins while playing with this feature will be multiplied by up to 5X, and Scatter wins are multiplied by 50 and the bet per line. You must have the Bonus Bet button activated to access the Rogues Feature Free Spins.
You have three choices when the mini-game opens up. Choose Captain Cold to get 12 free spins coupled with expanding wild respins. If The Flash appears, Captain Cold might opt to freeze that reel into an Expanding Wild single respin. If you choose the Mirror Master, expect 12 free spins with replaying free games. The Mirror Master may randomly choose to take you through time and repeat the last four free spins. Finally, go for the Gorilla Grodd if you want your 12 free spins served up with roaming wilds. Every time it free spins, he will move a wild symbol to a random spot on the reels.
Few video slots offer such a wide range of betting options. You can choose to bet on any number of lines between 1 and 50, and your coin values range from a 0.01 to 20.00. So the lowest bet possible is 0.01 cast on 1 line, and the highest bet you can make is 1,000.00 per spin, making this one of the highest limit slots available online, and by far, one of the biggest wagering opportunities in the NextGen Gaming catalog.
Despite being modeled after one of DC Comics’ fastest characters, the game can feel awfully slow at times. It can take quite a while to trigger the Rogues Feature Free Spins, although it’s usually well worth the wait when you finally land there. Be sure to keep the Bonus Bet activated, as that’s the only way to trigger the Rogues Feature. Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman are just a few of the many superhero video slots worth checking out next. And if you are a big spender slot player, this game is popular among high roller slot players.
