Batman and the Riddler Riches is one of five instalments in a new Batman-themed online slot series that Playtech introduced in 2016. These DC Comics-licensed slots were brought to replace the Marvel Comics progressive games Playtech used to have and they thus offer the same progressive jackpots as the Marvel slots. The game can be found both as a regular game as well as a progressive jackpot game and both options can often be found at the same online casino.
Look and feel
Batman & the Riddler Riches is a 5-reel slot with 243-ways-to-win. It comes with collapsing reels that replace winning symbols after a win and its graphics and audio samples were taken directly from the cult 1960s Batman TV series.
Faithfull to the source material, the slot is filled with animations from the show, bright colours, and a soundtrack reminiscent of guitar music of the 60s. The highest paying symbol in the game is the Riddler, followed by Batman, Robin, and four lower paying symbols representing the Commissioner and props from the original show.
Batman & the Riddler Riches is a mid-variance game with an RTP of 96.09%. The minimum you can bet on this Playtech slot is £0.25 while the maximum bet per spin only goes to £60.00, unlike most of the other slots from Playtech’s Batman series. If you want to have a better chance of triggering one of the 4 jackpots (Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand), you will have to bet more with each spin.
This slot comes with a few extras, the first being the Batman Logo Wild which can swap any symbol on the reels for bigger wins. The slot also has a randomly-triggered Riddler Mystery Spin feature that activates Mystery symbols on your reels which transform into other present symbols to create bigger wins.
Another bonus feature is the Batman Vs. the Riddler Bonus game. To activate the bonus feature, you will need to get 3 Bonus symbols on reels 1, 2, and 3. You will then spin a wheel to activate 1 of the 3 available bonus games. The first bonus feature is a Free Spins game with Sticky Wilds; the second a Free Spins game with progressive multipliers of up to 5x; and the third is a 2-stage game of pick-and-win where you’ll first uncover random prizes and then pick a multiplier to multiply those prizes.
The progressive jackpot, on the other hand, is given through another bonus game that is triggered randomly. Again, this bonus game is a game of pick-and-win where you’ll have to pick random boxes on the screen until you trigger one of the four jackpots.
