Batman Begins is a movie-themed slot from expert slot game makers Playtech. It was released in 2018 and brings to life the 2005 Batman Begins blockbuster movie starring Christian Bale, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes, Gary Oldham and Morgan Freeman. You’ll join Batman across five iconic locations from the film while you attempt to score the biggest prizes available in the game. Playtech has a number of movie-themed slot games that you might enjoy including titles like Gladiator, John Wayne, Rocky and The Mummy.
The Batman Begins slot game is played on a 5×3 set of reels with 20 pay lines. You can start betting from just £0.20 per spin up to a maximum of £200 per spin. There are also four progressive jackpots on offer, and your chance to win can be randomly triggered on any spin! The game is set in five different locations. Each location has its own unique features that create more ways for you to win.
Graphics and Theme
The graphics and theme are firmly based on the movie and various locations from the film. So, the look of the game will change as you move across the locations. You’ll go from The Temple to Wayne Manor, to The Batcave, to Arkham Asylum, and finally to The Monorail. The reels themselves look like a high-tech Batman gadget. They are forged from titanium and have lots of fancy glowing buttons. The background to the symbols is a gunmetal grey, and the character symbols inject some colour. The graphics are high quality, and you will be able to see your favourite characters from the film in high definition.
The soundtrack builds suspense and is similar to a classic action movie soundtrack. It uses instruments like the violin, piano, the drums and other percussion instruments to create a dark, dramatic and intense tune that makes you feel like action is just around the corner. You can hear the reels whirring as they rotate, and they come to a stop one by one with a mechanical clicking noise. When you make a winning combo, a quiet arcade noise will sound to let you know you’ve won some cash. Overall, the soundtrack and sound effects do a great job and making you feel like you’re watching a movie rather than playing a slot game.
Batman Begins symbols
The low paying symbols in the game are made up of the playing card symbols nine, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace. Five of a kind Aces are worth 70x your stake. The high paying symbols are made from your favourite characters from the film. They include Batman, Scarecrow, Bruce Wayne, Commissioner Gordon, Ra’s al Ghul and Dr Jonathan Crane. Batman is the most valuable symbol and is worth 1000x your stake for five of a kind.
Save Gotham City
During the game, you will have to save Gotham City by taking a spin in five different locations from the movie. Each location has its own unique features that will spice up the gameplay and give you different opportunities to make winning combinations. To change locations, you’ll need to fill up the meter at the top of your screen by landing symbols on the hot spot.
- The Temple – Flower wilds are active. Flower wilds expand diagonally to create more chances to win.
- Wayne Manor – Petrol wilds are active. Petrol wilds set other symbols on fire and transform them into wilds as well.
- The Batcave – Batmobile wilds are active. Batmobile wilds trigger a re-spin at the end of your turn and move one reel position to the left after each spin. They will repeat this process until they work their way off the screen.
- Arkham Asylum – The bat-signal symbol is active. This symbol will randomly turn other symbols into wilds to create bigger wins. It will also have a multiplier of up to 50x attached to it.
- The Monorail – The microwaves wild is active. When a microwave wild symbol lands, it will select the highest value adjacent symbol. Then a microwave burst will transform a random number of symbols into the high-value symbol.
There are four progressive jackpots to be won. The Mini, Minor, Major and Grand. The jackpot bonus round can be triggered randomly on any spin. Each jackpot has a colour and a power bar that needs to be filled in order for you to win the jackpot. To fill the power bars, you need to select the hidden tiles. They will reveal a colour which will charge the related jackpot’s power bar. The first power bar to be filled will be the jackpot that you win.
You will need to decide on your betting value before you hit spin. In this game, it’s between £0.20 per spin and a maximum of £200 per spin for anyone looking to maximise the potential wins in the game. Then you can hit spin manually or use the auto spin feature to perform up to 99 spins for you. The game is played across a 5×3 set of reels and will payout when you land three or more matching symbols on one of the 20 active pay lines. Any spin can trigger the progressive jackpot bonus round, however, the higher your stake, the more chance you have on triggering the round.
