Following on from The Dark Knight pokie, the Dark Knight Rises is also based on the film of the same name, which saw the Caped Crusader go up against one of his many nemeses in Bane. This is a relatively new creation and is often said to be one of Microgaming’s best licensed creations. To discover whether this is true or not for yourself, head for Royal Vegas Casino, where you can find this pokie and many others.
The aesthetics are ominous, shadowy, and perfect for the theme. The same goes for the sounds and the animations, although the latter can be a little out of place at times. Microgaming worked very hard to ensure this fit perfectly with the film, perhaps knowing that an army of superhero nerds would descend on them like an angry mob if they made the slightest mistake.
There is no high maximum bet here, but you can bet for as little as $0.01 per coin if you choose, before using these coins to place your bets. You stake will also determine the value of the in-game jackpot, which is an impressive amount, coming in at close to 2 million coins.
The main bonus round on this pokie is a free spins round, which is unlocked in a rather unique way. It begins with Bane and Batman appearing on the reels and fighting before you. Punches and kicks will land you free spins and multipliers, and the more evenly matched and brutal the fight is, the more you will get out of it. At the end of the fight, the free spins will begin.
Although this pokie does not have a progressive jackpot like its predecessor had, and although the RTP is also a fraction lower, we prefer this pokie and think that many other players will as well. It looks and sounds so much better and the features are also better. The Dark Knight Rises beats The Dark Knight hands down. We just wish we could say the same about the films
