Batman and the Catwoman Cash Slot from Ash Gaming
In this Ash Gaming title, Batman enlists the help of Catwoman to bring you extra ways to win. This is one of several Batman titled games in the Ash Gaming portfolio.
These online slots can be enjoyed at PlayTech casinos and played for real money. While they share many graphics elements, each slot has some unique game play and distinct bonus games.
In the Batman and Catwoman slot, you’ll get instant wins on the reels from special diamonds – and enjoy a progressive element, where your win multiplier for the free spins game keeps rising via the base game.
Setup of the Batman and the Catwoman Cash Slot
Instead of the all-ways system used in several of the Ash Gaming Batman titles, this slot machine game uses a more traditional win-lines setup. There are 25 win-lines crossing a regular 5 by 3 grid of the reels. You can play this slot for 25c and up.
Wild symbols have the biggest prize by a long way. This is the famous bat logo, with the word wild written underneath it. You will get 2500 coins for 5 of these on a win-line, 250 for 4 and 100 for 2. This symbol, along with Batman, are the only ones which pay for 2 of a kind. Wilds will substitute for all the regular symbols, though not the scatter / bonus ones or special diamonds.
The higher paying unique symbols are the 3 characters – Batman, Catwoman and Robin. These appear on the reels in different sizes, covering 1, 2 or 3 positions on a reel. If you cover several reels with the same character it is possible to win on multiple lines at the same time. A helicopter and motor boat, whip and glasses (from Catwoman), golden cats, belt and bat make up the remaining symbols. This game does not include any playing card type filler symbols on the reels.
The Cat Burglar Bonus
Both of the bonus games require scatters to trigger them. The Cat Burglar bonus needs these (bright pink symbols with the word ‘Bonus!’ on them) to appear on reels 1 and 3. This is a simple game, in which the 2 scatters say ‘Pick Me’. You choose one of them, which adds a multiplier for the next free spins bonus.
Next, the two scatters turn into diamonds – each of which gives you a cash prize.
Those same diamonds can appear at random too. When they do you will see the prize appearing over the top of them. These are not the biggest prizes – though can be a welcome boost at times.
Free Games Bonus with Batman and Catwoman Picks
3 of the scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 will get you the main bonus feature. This is a free spins game, which has a picks game to kick things off. You will see a screen with blue squares linked to Batman and pink squares linked to Catwoman. You choose one from each set. Batman gives you an overall number of free spins, and Catwoman gives you a multiplier for any wins. This is added to any multiplier which you earned during the Cat Burglar bonuses.
There is a unique enhanced retrigger chance at the end of the free spins game. Many more scatter symbols are added to the reels. This gives you a much bigger probability of retriggering the bonus on the first spin back in the main game.
This slot also includes the DC Heroes Progressive Jackpots. There are 4 jackpot amounts, ranging from mini through to Grand. At random, you will be taken to a game where you pick from 20 yellow tiles. When this game is triggered you are certain to win one of the jackpots.
Colorful Retro Design
Anyone expecting to see Halle Berry on the reels will be disappointed. This slot is based on the 1970’s TV series, which in turn was based on the DC Comics version of Batman. The main focus is the characters, with Catwoman standing out (thanks to the ears more than anything!). Batman and Robin are reused from other slots in this range.
There are some animations, and a video clip is also included – both helping to bring this slot to life. You will see Catwoman appear over the reels as part of the Cat Burglar bonus game too. Like the other Batman slots, you will hear some retro and entertaining sound effects and music.
More entertaining variations on bonus games – as well as the chance to land a bigger line win than usual – make this slot a winner for me. It is not the most detailed when it comes to the graphics, though the kitsch retro feel (and the bonus games) have a certain charm.
