Following hard on the heels of Playtech’s Superman: The Movie online slot is this sequel which of course is based on the second movie of the original trio. That’s the one in which our hero has to battle General Zod and his friends after they escape from the Phantom Zone – it’s called Superman 2.
Superman II is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty five fixed paylines and the reel-spinning action takes place above the city of Metropolis. Music from the movie accompanies your gameplay as you trigger various bonuses based on characters and events from the film.
The high value symbols are related to theme and include Superman, Lois Lane, General Zod, Otis, Ursa, Clark Kent’s famous glasses and a piece of kryptonite; J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
Superman’s big ‘S’ is the wild symbol and it will substitute for all others to form winning combos except for the Daily Planet bonus icon.
Superman Wild Feature
This can occur randomly during any base game spin – Superman will fly across the screen and up to four symbols wild, after which any payouts will be evaluated.
Daily Planet Headline Bonus
This is triggered by landing three of the Daily Planet bonus symbols anywhere on reels one, three and five and then you must then press ‘Stop’ to determine one of the following five features:
- Battle For Metropolis – work your way through picking rounds to win cash prizes, X-rays or kryptonite; X-rays will reveal all the prizes and kryptonite can cancel out the round-ending ‘Collect’.
- Phantom Zone – unlimited free spins with a 2×2 wild Phantom Zone square on each spin; multipliers, ‘S’ symbols and explosives (which end the round) are awarded on each spin. The ‘S’ symbol can cancel out one explosive.
- Skyline Fight – awards ten free spins with a 1x multiplier; landing Superman on reel three stops the spin countdown and any further Supermans (Supermen?) increase the multiplier up to a maximum of 5x. Landing General Zod on reel three resets the multiplier and starts the spin countdown.
- X-Ray Vision Free Spins – awards 15 free spins and if the X-ray symbol lands on reel three it will turn wild and add extra wilds on reels two and four.
- Lois & Clark Bonus – this is another picking game in which you select Superman symbols until you find five matching colours which will award one of the stated prizes. Finding a red arrow will double the prizes and revealing an ‘S’ will add one colour to each prize meter.
Entry to the jackpot game can be won on any spin but there’s a better chance of you play with a higher stake; pick from the grid on display to find colours which fill up the Grand, Major, Minor or Mini prize meters.
Superman 2 is a worthy successor to Superman: The Movie and it adds a whole variety of bonus features for players to enjoy; of course it also comes with the DC Comics progressive jackpot and an RTP of 95.03%.
