Ever since they acquired the license to the DC superheroes franchise from Microgaming, Playtech have been steadily building up the array of superhero-themed slots which feature in their arsenal. This month, another new game was unveiled at casinos.
The Flash is bursting into online gaming portals this week, as the latest DC-themed progressive jackpot slot, it is not short of goodies and features to offer players, either. Here’s what players can expect from the newly launched Playtech slot.
A Quick Note on The Flash
For starters, Playtech have worked with Geco Studio to develop The Flash. Together, they have produced a 5-reel, 50-line game which offers four randomly triggered progressive jackpot cash prizes (the same prizes as in other DC slots) and has bets which range from 50p up to £500 a game.
The new slot also contains plenty of goodies. Wild symbols can appear on the second, third, fourth and fifth reels, and they can substitute for all barring scatters. During the base game, random wilds can also appear, and they too can raise the odds of players landing a win.
Battle and Free Spin Bonuses
Should 5 Flash or Reverse Flash scatter icons appear on the reels, a Battle Bonus is triggered. Players can select who they believe will win the fight, and the figures they are offered will be available as cash prizes during the next stage of the round, based on the character they chose.
Following this, a free spin bonus round occurs. Should a Reverse Flash icon appear on the fourth reel, he will net one of the prizes mentioned during the previous stage. If The Flash appears on the third reel, he will win the prizes. Once all five prizes from the Battle Bonus have been won, you will land whatever prizes your character (Flash or Reverse Flash) managed to scoop.
Play the New Progressive This March
Of course, this game also comes with the four randomly triggered progressive jackpot prizes running on Playtech’s DC Comics jackpot network. The new game is going to be rather easy to find. Any major Playtech powered casino (or casino offering Playtech games) will likely be offering the new jackpot slot at some point this March as it makes its debut online. If your chosen casino already offers Playtech progressives, the likelihood is that The Flash may be available for you right now.
