The Superman II slot game can be found at Playtech casinos. The company are well-established in the online market and have a large back-catalogue of branded slots. Playtech do not publish the house edge of their games, however several established Playtech casinos have started releasing this information meaning it is possible to identify that the house edge of Superman II is 5% and should be valid at all Playtech casinos.
The Superman II slot is a 5-reel slot with each reel sitting at 3 symbols in height. The slot uses 25 different paylines, each one playing from left to right.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Superman Logo”. Wilds will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters.
Scatters – The Scatter symbol is the “Daily Planet Logo”. You need to land 3 of them to trigger the Bonus feature. They only land on reels 1, 3 and 5.
Superman Wild Feature – This is a random feature, meaning it can trigger on any spin. If it does, Superman will fly over the reels and leave behind 2, 3 or 4 Wild symbols in place of ordinary symbols. If a Wild symbol lands on top of a Scatter symbol the Bonus can still be triggered. The feature is only available during the base game.
Bonus – If you trigger the Bonus feature then you will play 1 of 5 different games. The game you play will be chosen at random and the are as follows:
Battle for Metropolis – This is a pick and click game. You have Superman Logos to click on an each one will reveal either a cash prize, a rod of kryptonite, an Xray symbol or a collect symbol. If you land a collect symbol the feature will end. However, if you reveal a rod of kryptonite you will store it and use it to negate the effects of the collect symbol. Xray symbols allow you to see what is underneath all the symbols. The bonus is played over levels and if you make to the end of a level then you will collect the sum total of all the cash prizes you have reveal.
Phantom Zone – This is a Free Spins game, in which you are given unlimited Free Spins. During each spin the Phantom Zone will occupy a 2x2 symbol space on the reels, moving around to a different position each spin. All symbols within the Phantom Zone are Wilds and will substitute for all other symbols. There are special symbols available too. 2x and 3x Multipliers are both available. There are symbols that will cancel the feature when they land as well. However, Superman logos can be collected and they will counteract the effects of the cancel symbol. The feature cannot be retriggered.
Skyline Fight – This is a Free Spins game, in which you are given 10 Free Spins. Key symbols here are Superman and Zod. They both appear on reel 3 and impact on a multiplier. The multiplier begins at 1x the bet and can be increase if you land a Superman symbol on reel 3. Landing the initial Superman symbol will not increase the multiplier but all subsequent ones will. This will also freeze your Free Spins, meaning you will continue to get Free Spins but the amount available will not decrease. However, all of that is undone, including resetting the multiplier to 1x the bet if you land a Zod symbol on reel 3.
Xray Vision Free Spins – You will be given 15 Free Spins and the Xray symbol will be made available. When it lands (it can only land on reel 3) on the reels it will turn into a standard Wild will also add will add and additional Wild on reel 2 and reel 4.
Lois and Clark Bonus – This is a pick and click feature. Essentially you keep clicking until you reveal 5 symbols of the same colour. There are 4 different prizes to be one, with the red prize being worth the most. You can also turn over and reveal another Superman symbol. Doing so will add a symbol to each of the 4 levels. Additionally you can land a red arrow. Doing this will double the prize amount available for each colour.
Jackpot – The Jackpot will trigger at random and if it does so you will be taken to a screen filled with 20 blank symbols. There are 4 different coloured tiles for you to reveal and once you have filled one of the jackpots with the required number of matching symbols you will be awarded that Jackpot.
Superman II has an awful lot going on once you get stuck into that Bonus round. The basics are just that: Wilds, standard paylines, a random feature, a bonus and a Jackpot. However, the Bonus is anything but basic. There are 5 different Bonus rounds that you can play: 2 pick and click round and 3 different Free Spins rounds. This does, of course, rely on you triggering that feature, but you do the possibilities are quite exciting. The house edge is higher than we would want it to be, but is ultimately what you should expect from Playtech.
