Playtech and DC Comics are taking players deeper than ever into the world of superheroes with its latest partnership.
One of the top online slot providers, Playtech has produced some of the best slot games available, including the acclaimed Age of Gods series. But Playtech has made its mark with its lineup of DC comic-themed superhero slots, highlighted by the Superman the Movie and the Superman II games. Now the partnership has set up its most immersive game yet.
Unlike other games that present a slot without much ambiance, The Dark Knight makes the player feel like they’re chasing the Joker through the streets of Gotham City. The music and display presents a grimy, dark background that perfectly complements the equally compelling gameplay.
The game itself, featuring the Joker, is also nothing to laugh at. With marque characters from Christopher Nolan’s acclaimed film trilogy including Harvey Dent/Two Face, Commissioner Gordon and, of course, Bruce Wayne/Batman, used on the reels, the game appropriately captures the thrill that has drawn millions to the franchise.
A wide array of special features further help make this game stand out. The highlight is the Batman and Joker Respins feature that allows players to earn up to eight respins. Players can also experience a game changer with the exciting Agent of Chaos Free Games feature that can bring about even more bonuses.
Long one of the titans of the industry, Playtech has helped fuel the online casino boom of the past two decades. Founded in 1999, the software developer has continued to grow because of its aggressive acquisitions of rivals and innovative game designs. The company now has annual revenue exceeding €800 million annually and is listed on the London Stock Exchange.
Playtech software is behind the partnership with top online betting sites including Paddy Power Befair and William Hill, but it has made its mark in online casino games. With the Age of the God series, Playtech claimed its stake as one, if not the, top game provider. It reached new heights with its lineup of superhero slots.
The company partnered with Marvel in 2009 to bring iconic slot games like The Incredible Hulk, The Fantastic Four and The Avengers. Its affiliation with the rival DC Comics universe might be even more impressive.
Highlighted by the classic Christopher Reeves Superman movies, one of the greatest superhero movies of all time, Playtech has continued to expand its lineup of slot games themed after DC classics. After the success of Superman and its sequel film, Playtech moved on to a game highlighting the beloved Batman television series starring the late television star Adam West.
They didn’t stop there with DC comic branded slots. Playtech engineered a game highlighting the rivalry between the Man of Steel and the Caped Crusader in the blockbuster Batman v Superman movie. Then they created a game to commemorate Suicide Squad, the dark anti-hero film that bring even more of DC's long list of well-known characters to the silver screen.
Though Playtech has already created some of the top games online, the gaming giant hasn’t settled. Last year Playtech broke the world record for largest live-dealer studio. The facility in Latvia is 8,500 square meters and is loaded with some of the top gaming technology available today.
With efforts like these, as well as a growing number of top-of-the-line slots like The Dark Knight, Playtech continues its run as an industry titan.
