The Dark Knight Rises Bonus Features

Bane VS BatmanFight Mode & Free Spins Accumulator: The Dark Knight Rises suddenly erupts in an epic battle between Batman and Bane randomly after a spin. As the two exchange blows, both the number of Free Spins and the Multiplier increase. The rewards are accessible when Free Spins is triggered.

Free Spins: Get 3+ Scatter Bombs to trigger a round of 10 Free Spins. Choose either Bane or Batman. Each has his own unique benefits, and adds a number of Free Spins/Multipliers to the total.

Bane Free Spin Rules: Get a number of Free Spins and a Multiplier as well as a special Rolling Reels Feature with Super Stacked Wilds. On a Free Spin win, Rolling Reels activates exploding a winning combo which is then replaced with new symbols for the chance to win again. This occurs over and over until no new wins occur. Super Stacked Wilds unlocks when Free Spins has been activated at least 10 times. The Dark Knight Rises Logo Wild appears on reels 2 & 4 only and acts as a stacked symbol.

Batman Free Spin Rules: Get a number of Free Spins and a Multiplier as well as a special Extra Wild Blast with Heat Seeking Wilds. The Extra Wild Blast allows players to choose a regular symbol to be an additional Wild during Free Spins. Heat Seeking Wilds activate after Free Spins has been activated at least 10 times. Symbols on reels 2-4 randomly turn into Split Wilds which split into 2 symbols increasing chances for winning combos. The Split Wild gives the potential for a 6 matching symbol win which pays double what a winning combo of 5 matching symbols would pay.

Symbol Scramble Feature: This Dark Knight Rises feature is completely random and can activate after any spin. The symbols switch places for the chance to form new winning combinations. It cannot activate during Free Spins.

Settle in for the Long Haul

The Dark Knight Rises is one of those online video slots which pays in the long run. The base game will likely turn up wins on a low and slow basis while Free Spins is where the real money can be made. It is a tad annoying that Batman and Bane’s special Wild Features don’t activate unless Free Spins has been activated 10 times. This slot is definitely not for players lacking patience. The cinematic animations, Fight Feature, movie clips and overall visual design are everything you would expect from slots based on movies. Fans of Batman and Microgaming’s The Dark Knight will love this sequel nearly as much as they loved the original despite the absence of a Progressive Jackpot.
