It’s it a bird, it’s a plane … NO! It’s Superman flying straight into danger and searing winning combinations across the reels with red lasers.

Launch Wins Up, Up and Away!
Superman is a 4-row, 5-reel, 50-fixed payline video slot with multiple game modes that are distinguished from one another by differing backgrounds. The base game background shows an illustration of the man of steel’s peaceful city. When the Bonus Bet is activated, the background switches to a more action-packed scene with debris flying from an explosion. During Free Games mode, the background switches yet again. This time, ice surrounds the reels, no doubt, in reference to Superman’s Fortress of solitude. The music strongly echoes soundtracks from popular films and TV series based on the legend of Superman.
Superman displays Total Bet, Line Bet and Win values in cash beneath the reels. Players have a choice of a Total Bet ranging from 50p – £600 at LeoVegas. This can be adjusted by selecting a Line Bet ranging from 1p – £10 and opting in or out of Bonus Bet activation. Pays listed in the Paytable are shown in coin values which remain fixed despite changes in Bet selection. Wins are auto-calculated by multiplying the Line Bet by the Pay.
Superman has 13 super symbols consisting of familiar faces, objects and places from the Superman saga. This online slot has 3 special symbols including a Superman Wild, Bonus Logo and Scatter Logo. The Superman Wild can form its own winning combos, substitute for any regular symbol and awards a Win Multiplier to winning combos it completes (2x during base gameplay & 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x during Free Games). It expands to cover an entire reel during Free Games for maximum win potential! The Scatter Logo awards its own winning combos. The Bonus Logo can only appear when the Bonus Bet is active. It awards winning combos and is involved in triggering the Save the World Feature.
Superman has 10 regular symbols. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Lex Luthor, Lois Lane, Daily Planet, Sky Scrapers, Train Car, Fist, Laser Eyes, Crate, Broken Chains and Clark’s Glasses.
This online slot’s gameplay is left to right. Get 2+ (Lois, Lex, Logos, Wild) or 3+ matching symbols to form a winning combination. Scatters don’t follow along paylines and can award pays from anywhere they land. Arch nemesis, Lex Luthor, and main squeeze, Lois Lane, are the 2 highest paying regular symbols. Lex shows a value of (500, 150, 50, 3) awarding up to £1.000 with a 5 kind match. Lois shows a value of (250, 50, 20, 1) and has the potential to award up to £500. The Superman Wild is the highest paying symbol of this online slot showing a value of (10.000, 1.000, 250, 10). This symbol can award up to £20,000 with a 5 of a kind match.
These DC Comic slots all offer an Autoplay ranging from 5 – 100 consecutive spins. Click ‘fast forward’ to speed up Autoplay, the large ‘stop’ button to stop the reels faster and the small ‘stop’ button to end it. Additional Superman Game Settings include: adjust volume or toggle it on/off.
Superman’s Mighty Bonus Features
Bonus Bet Feature: When activated, this Feature adds 10 extra coins to the Total Bet for special enhancements. The Save the World Feature becomes available and a higher RTP of 96,75% is triggered.
Free Games: The appearance of 3 – 5 Superman Wild symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 triggers an initial round of 10 Free Games. This Feature has the added benefit of an Expanded Superman Wild which grants a Win Multiplier of up to 5x to each winning combination it completes. For example, if it completes a 5 of a kind match of Lex Luthor, then the potential cash prize could amount to £25.000!
Save the World Feature:
The appearance of 3+ Bonus Logo symbols triggers this special superhero Feature. An animated Mini-game commences. Players must click meteors to reveal a cash prize, then pick off Luthor’s jets for another prize, until finally, Superman reaches the Fortress of Solitude. Click on the correct door to find Lex and win a large coin prize! This special game gives players the chance to win up to 100x the Line Bet! At LeoVegas, that amounts to a big win of up to £200!
