The Batman and the Joker Jewels
The Batman and the Joker Jewels slot is a 5 reels and 25 pay lines progressive jackpot slot powered by the phenomenal Playtech.

Besides the 4 progressive jackpots up for grabs you can also get your hands on 2,500 coins in an instant if you manage to land five wilds simultaneously on the reels. The Batman and the Joker Jewels slot review forms part of a series of slots focused and themed around the DC Batman Classic TV Series and all the slot in the series are connected to the same four progressive jackpots on offer. Thus, you can expect the jackpot to be quite a massive and juicy one, most certainly not something worth missing out on considering it can turn you into an instant millionaire.
Look & Feel
The Batman and the Joker Jewels slot comes with a retro design and of course a burst of colours such as pink and green. The colour scheme is relevant and quite brilliant considering the fact that the colours are ironically linked to the Joker. If you look closely you will also see a never-ending sequence of the smile that made the joker famous in the backdrop.
The slot keeps the comic book feel staying true to the origins of the DC Comics characters and the symbols you can expect on the reels include Batman, The Joker and Robin. Lower value symbols include the Batmobile, Batplane, a gun, toy teeth and a Batarang. This particular slot has 2 wild symbols namely the Joker smile and the Batman logo. Both of these are considered the highest paying symbols and can reward you with up to 100 times your stake if you manage to land five simultaneously on the reels.
Some might find the graphics and design to be somewhat of a let-down but avid comic readers and lovers of the original show will find it perfectly suited and a little nostalgic.
Sound & Score
The soundtrack is quite jazzy and upbeat and you’ll easily get lost in the reels as you tap your foot along to the beat. The soundtrack itself plays a very important role in creating the authentic and nostalgic feel inspired by the original series. And of course there are a few added clips from the original TV series so you can expect to see some clips of Batman doing the jive when he forms part of a winning combination. All wins are announced by a different sound clip depending on what symbols form part of the winning combination.
Bonus features and Gameplay
Batman vs The Joker Free Spins:
If you manage to land three or more of the bonus symbols anywhere on reels one, three and five you will trigger this feature. At the start you will have to choose whose side you are on e.g. Batman or The Joker. You will receive and unlimited number of free spins where a split wild symbol will appear on reel three. Whenever the wild appears the meter on the top will move towards either the Batman or the Joker. If the meter moves towards the team you decided to join it will award you with massive multipliers but when you reach the “end” the round will be over.
Random Joker Wilds:
During the base game or free spins feature the Joker can appear at random and will then add up to 9 Joker wilds on the reels.
The DC Super Heroes Jackpot game can be triggered at random at any point during the game but is more likely to appear with higher bets. If you are lucky enough to trigger the jackpot game you will be taken to a different screen where you must pick from the matrix to unveil certain colours. Each of the four jackpots (Mini, Minor, Major and Grand) are linked to a corresponding colour. You can win any of the four jackpots if you manage to fill up the colour bar on the right hand side of the matrix.
Is it worth playing?
Yes! To be honest, this slot has to be one of our favourites from the series simply because of the beauty and significance of the design, colour scheme and lay-out. Playtech has done a beautiful job at creating a simplistic yet highly entertaining slot that comes with a ton of epic bonus features and of course the chance to turn you into an instant millionaire.
