The Superman slots game can be found at Cryptologic casinos. Cryptologic also lease their slots games out to casinos using other software platforms. Cryptologic do not as standard publish the house edge of their slots games, however several casinos now offering their games – including InterCasino – do supply this information. Given the different information supplied by different casinos it is reasonable to assume that Cryptologic games are configurable and as such the figures in this review should be treated as a guideline only when playing at casinos that do not explicitly state the settings they use.
The world is in mortal danger from the evil Lex Luther and only the man of steel stands between him and victory.
This game is a 5 reel game with 50 paylines and you can only bet one coin on each payline.
The ‘Superman’ symbol is wild and multiplies all wins by 5.
There are two bonus features when playing Superman. The first is activated when you receive the Superman wild symbol anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4. When this happens you will be awarded 10 complimentary spins. During the complimentary spins, each spin will have one reel randomly changed into an expanded wild symbol.
The second bonus feature is only active if you are placing the ‘Bonus Bet’ which will cost you an extra 10 coins to play. While this is active, if you receive 3 or more of the ‘S’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels you will be taken to a new screen showing Superman flying through a meteor shower. Use his heat vision to destroy the meteors. Then you will be taken to a screen showing Superman chasing Lex Luther’s missiles. Again use his heat vision to destroy them. Finally you will be taken to a screen showing three doors within Lex Luther’s ice fortress. Behind one of the doors in kryptonite, which ends the bonus feature. Another door has hostages which Superman will save and receive a bonus for and the final door hides Lex Luther, which awards the biggest prize.
Superman would be a fairly amusing game if it weren’t for one small issue. While shooting both the meteors and the missiles, I’m just not convinced that what I was doing was having that much effect on the outcome. It seemed that I would click one meteor, and nothing would happen while another meteor would blow up when I clicked nowhere near it. That would be fine – plenty of slots games have bonus features that play automatically – but if that’s the case, don’t imply that they player has control.
