This time the story isn’t as dark as you might expect, as the game is based on a 1960’s TV series and not the Dark Night movies or the comics, for that matter. Here, in Batman and the Joker Jewels, the characters jumped out of the TV set and appear a bit silly, but heroic and villainous none the less. The game features 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 fixed winning lines.
While Batman chases the Joker, don’t you miss the chance to join the chase for winning one of the four progressive jackpot prizes concealed somewhere inside the gameplay.
What We Love
Older members of the gaming community are probably familiar with the TV series and can witness how good of a tribute is Batman and the Joker Jewels slot machine.
Everything emits a retro vibe and there is a groovy feel throughout the gameplay. Adam West shines in his Batman costume and Cesar Romero kept his Joker grin at a max level. Pink background makes it all look slightly cartoonish, along with various requisites from the series. It is a nice remainder of the starting periods of Batman’s presence on the screen.
DC Comics series from Ash Gaming and Playtech has a progressive jackpot involved and that is a major plus, or shall we say a grand plus – because the jackpot of highest value is called the Grand Jackpot. Besides entering the progressive race, you’ll enjoy terrific Wild symbol action and feast your eyes as stacked character symbols occupy most cell of the reel grid. Batman and the Joker Jewels is a cool–looking, cool performance game.
What We Do Not Like
Like we said, older Batman fans will relate to the theme, but a lot of younger ones will just see it as a silly version of the comics and stick to more modern depictions of their favourite super hero. Hopefully, the game might trigger an interest about the TV series, but the chances are slim as modern day slot machines offer a great choice of games and an alternative is easy to find these days.
There isn’t much else we can say is the setback of the game. Surely, players will have their view on the matter and criticise lack of more bonus features or ask for more innovative gameplay elements, but we’re fine with what we got so far. Some aspects of the game are predictable and typical for Playtech, but we can’t really blame them for that. The RTP is estimated to be 95.01%, which could have been a bit higher, as far as average spinner is concerned.
Retro Batman, decent winning potential, two Wilds and a Bonus symbol, free spins and four progressive jackpot rewards – you get all this in Batman and the Joker Jewels. From a modern day perspective, the 60’s TV show was silly, as it featured funny costumes and ridiculous replicas, but it was entertaining and very popular.
You’ll get a few laughs while playing the slot as well, but you will also make sure the Joker doesn’t have the last laugh by taking away your winnings. All in all, the game will keep you busy and amused, therefore go for it.
