The Batman & Catwoman Cash Slot is a retro 5 reels and 25 pay lines video slot powered by Playtech. The slot is themed around the dark knight and the ever scheming femme fatale, Catwoman. One of her biggest trademarks is her love for taking things that do not belong to her. This online slot is based on the DC Batman Classic TV Series from the 1960’s and Playtech has managed to add some nostalgia to the slot by sticking to retro, old school design and sound that complement the original series.
Batman’s faithful sidekick Robin will also show his face on the reels to assist in your journey to jackpot winnings whenever he can. Other than that the slot contains a lot of relevant symbols that are designed around the original slot. The progressive jackpot slot game is playable on all devices from your desktop straight through to your mobile and tablet devices allowing you to spin for fantastic wins at any time of day and night no matter where you might be.
Besides the 4 different jackpots up for grabs you can cash in on 2,500 coins in an instant if you manage to land five wilds simultaneously on the reels. The progressive jackpots up for grabs are divided into four namely the Grand, Major, Minor and Mini jackpot.
The Batman and Catwoman Cash slot forms part of a series of brilliant DC Comics based series and it comes with 2 fantastic bonus features that will be discussed later on in the review. Playtech has done a great job at keeping the retro graphics and sounds while providing players with a fun and enticing slot, not to mention not one but FOUR chances to cash in on some mega winnings.
Look & Feel
At first glance the slot might seem like a disappointment graphics and design wise but when you take into account that the slot is based and themed around a DC Comics series from the 1960’s it becomes a graphical masterpiece. Anyone can breathe new air into something old by simply creating bigger and better quality designs but it takes an industry giant to stay true to the original look and feel of something and still make it playable and magnificent.
The slot background is a variety of orange and yellow and if you look closely you will see catchphrases and diamonds transparent through the design. The reels itself has a rather minimalistic look which is quite great considering the white backdrop of the reels neutralises the bold and beautiful colours splashed on the symbols. Everything in the slot comes with a cartoonish design significant to the original series so for comic fans worldwide this slot will awaken quite a nostalgic feel.
The symbols on the reels are all theme related and include Batman, Catwoman, Robin, the Batcopter, Batboat, Batarang, Catwoman’s whip and mask, the utility belt and two gold cats. The iconic Batman spotlight symbol appears on the reels as the wild and the scatter icon is splashed in a bright pink “bonus” design.
Sound & Score
The soundtrack is quite captivating and you will find yourself stuck to your seat as you bop along to the beat while you spin your way to riches. Some might find the soundtrack annoying when playing for too long but luckily that is why you’ve been gifted with a mute button.
Bonus features and Gameplay
Cat Burglar Bonus:
If you manage to land the “Bonus” scatter symbol on reels one and three then you will have the opportunity to select one of the two to receive either an instant cash prize or a +1 multiplier for the next free spins round. If the selected icon presents a multiplier of minimum 2x then the triggering symbol becomes a diamond in your based game. These diamond symbols will award you with cash prizes whenever they fall on your reels.
Batman vs Catwoman Free Spins:
If you manage to land three or more of the “Bonus” symbols anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5 then you will trigger the Batman vs Catwoman free spins round. A list of Batman and Catwoman blocks will appear on the screen with the words “Pick Me” on them. You will have the opportunity to pick one from the Batman group and one from the Catwoman group. The Batman block will reveal the number of free spins you’ll get and the Catwoman block will reveal the multiplier which will be added to the value collected from the Cat Burglar Bonus.
There are four DC Super Heroes Jackpot game pots open for the win namely the Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand of which the Grand is obviously the biggest jackpot that can be won. Any spin can trigger the jackpot game even if the spin didn’t turn out any winnings. During the jackpot game you will see 20 jackpot icons. Each icon hides a colour corresponding with a certain jackpot, the jackpot bar that is filled up first with corresponding colours (You’ll need at least two for the mini and five for the Grand) will reveal your win.
