Batman and the Penguin Prize slot uses a unique set of reels. The main reels (left-hand side) consist of four rows and three columns which are used for every spin in the main game. If a winning combination occurs from a spin in the main game, the reels on the right-hand side will be activated for a Penguin Respin. These reels have the same structure as the main reels. More information will be provided on Penguin Respins in a later section.
The main reels consist of 64 Ways, otherwise known as paylines. This means that every combination is covered from left to right across the reels. You will be paid for a winning combination if you land three matching symbols in any order across the three columns of the reels.
Please take note that there is a difference between the Total Bet and the Coin Value. The Total Bet is the amount staked for each spin. The Coin Value is used to calculate payouts. The Total Bet is calculated as Coin Value X 25.
Every possible payout award is listed on the Paytables, which are accessed by clicking Info. Payouts for winning combinations are multiplied by the Coin Value.
You will only be paid for the highest possible combination on each payline (Way), but wins on different paylines will be added up and paid out as a total.
Wild Symbols can appear on the 2nd and 3rd columns of the main reels. They will substitute for all other symbols to make the best paying winning combinations on a payline.
Note: Wild Symbols will not appear during any of the Penguin Respins.
The High Paying Symbols – Batman, Robin and the Penguin – can appear stacked on the reels. This means that they will cover more than one position in a column, even though they are made up of a single image of the character. Each position covered will be calculated separately when it comes to paying out for winning combinations.
Note: Wild Symbols can also appear stacked on the reels.
Penguin Respins will be awarded after any winning spin in the main game. The set of reels on the right-hand side will be activated and begin to spin. When they have come to rest, winning combinations will be calculated in the same manner as the main game.
If Penguin Symbols land on all three columns simultaneously (in any position), you will be awarded a second Penguin Respin.
The second Penguin Respin will take place on a special reel set. It features six columns and four rows, which creates 4096 paylines. In addition, 2x2 Super Symbols are added to the reels. These symbols – Batman, Penguin or Robin – can span two rows and two columns of the reels. Although they are made up of a single image, each position will be calculated separately when it comes to paying out.
If during the second Penguin Respin, a winning combination made up of three or more Penguin Symbols occurs, you will be awarded the third Penguin Respin. If the combination of Penguin Symbols does not occur, the Penguin Respin Feature will end and you will receive the payouts from the initial two Respins.
The third Penguin Respin will take place on the same reel set as the second. However, this time 3x3 Super Symbols (Batman, Penguin and Robin) are added to the reels. Just two of these symbols will cover the majority of the reels and lead to 100s of winning combinations.
The Penguin Respins Feature will end after the third Respin, regardless of the result.
DC Superheroes Jackpot:
Any spin in the main game can award the DC Superheroes Jackpot Game. It does not matter if the spin is a winning one or not, the Jackpot Game is awarded randomly. However, you will increase your chances if you play the slot with a higher Total Bet. Entry to the Jackpot Game will guarantee one of four DC Superheroes Jackpots – Mini, Minor, Major or Grand.
Progressive Jackpots are funded by a combination of player bets (a small percentage is taken from each stake) and seeds, which are provided by the casino. Each Jackpot will grow until it is won by a player, then it will reset to the seed amount.
If you are awarded the DC Superheroes Jackpot Game a message will appear on screen. You will then be taken to the Jackpot Game screen, which features a grid of 20 symbols on the left-hand side and the four Jackpots listed on the right. Clicking on the symbols will reveal energy colours that correspond to each Jackpot. The Jackpot you win depends on what you reveal first by clicking on the symbols on the grid.
Note: You must make your choices under a time limit. If not, a Jackpot is randomly chosen for you.

Seed (base award for Jackpots provided by the casino) = Mini €100, Minor €1000, Major €10000, Grand €200000.
