Where to play?
Fans of the Superman films will be delighted to know that Playtech released Superman II (2) progressive jackpot slots. The game has 25 paylines, 5 reels and packed to the rafters with random wilds and 5 bonus games spearheaded by the ‘Daily Planet Headline Bonus‘. The slots is playable on mobile phones and desktops for free or for real cash at the best playtech casinos.
Aside from being a Superman themed slots you get to battle the villains from the planet Krypton, by doing so you’ll win loads of cash prizes plus you have a choice of 3 free spins options. The best bit about the game is its 4 progressive jackpots! Superman II the film has been released in the 1980s, the same actors that featured in the film now weave their magic across the reels.
You’ll see the majestic Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman, Margot Kidder, cards from Jack to Ace, Krytonite, Clark Kent’s spectacles, general Zod, Ursa and Lois Lane. The symbol that pays the biggest cash prize is Superman, 5 of them at the maximum bet pays 1,000 coins. The game has an average return to player percentage (RTP) of 96% which is quite high for a progressive.
The smallest bet per spin £0.25 up to a whopping £500 per spin. The coin range is 0.01 up to 0.40 enabling players with different sized bankrolls to play it. The higher your average bet per spin the more volatile the slot becomes. It makes sense because the payouts are way bigger too.
The wild symbol is the Superman logo, it completes a winning combination when it replaces all the other symbols on the reels except the scatter (Daily Planet). The Superman Wild feature can be triggered randomly during the main game-Superman flies across the reels turning reels 2, 3 and 4 into wilds.
Daily Planet Headline Bonus
Should the Daily Planet pitch on reels 1, 3 and 5 you must pick one of 5 bonus features. We ranked the bonus modes starting with our favorite ones to the least.
Lois And Clark Bonus
It’s a pretty straightforward Pick Me game, in order to receive a cash prize you must collect 5 shields of the same colour, succeed and you will win 1 of 5 cash prizes. Here you can win anything from 500 up to 2,500 coins.
X-Ray Vision Free Spins
You’ll receive 15 free spins the moment the Xray symbol pitches, it becomes wild adding two extra wilds to reels 2 and 4. Be prepared for some decent wins here where you can win up to 40x your stake.
Skyline Fight Free Spins
When Superman pops up on the reels he freezes the free spins counter, you’ll get 10 free spins with 1x multipliers. Every time Superman pops up on the reels the multiplier shoots up by 1x up to 5x. In the event the evil General Zod appears the free spins become thawed (unfreezes) and the counters will reset.
Battle For The Metropolis
Here you must fight against the villains over the rooftops of the Metropolis and pick a variety of shields-it’s a classic ‘Pick Me’ game. It can be a hit or a miss at times but the cash prizes that can be won here are generally good.
Phantom Zone Free Spins
During this free spins feature you can win an unlimited amount of free spins with the ‘Phantom Zone’ occupying a 2×2 area and acting as a wild across the reels. The best bit about the bonus mode is that you can collect a series of power ups that contain multipliers of 2x to 3x. That said, if you collect the bomb power up the free spins feature ends and you will return to the base game.
Just like its predecessor Superman, Superman II belongs to the DC Super Heroes Jackpot network where 1 of 4 progressive jackpots are randomly triggered. If you win the Grand Jackpot you’ll win a hefty £1 million.
In my opinion Superman II is better than the previous one. It offers a bunch of lucrative bonus modes in conjunction with the Superman wild feature that really spices things up especially during the main game.
Of the bonus games my favourite one is ‘Lois and Clark’ since it offers a top jackpot payout of 2,500 coins. Pay special attention to the wild symbol, it adds a symbol to each of the 4 levels plus an arrow doubles all prizes up to 100x your stake.
Superman II is another solid medium variance progressive jackpot slots by Playtech. It offers decent wins during the base game while the bigger wins are reserved for the bonus games.
