22.122017Justice League Slot from Playtech
Justice League is winning over comic book fans at the cinema right now and Playtech, the master of the superhero slot machine, is trying to cash in on that success with the Justice League slot machine. This game is now available on most highly rated Playtech online casinos, but does it live up to the inevitable hype that follows these slots and these films around or is it a flop?
Justice League Slot Basics
This slot certainly seems to have some good things going for it and on first glance it looks great. There are official licenses, which means you’ll see images from the film, as well as sounds and more. There is also an RTP of 96.3% and a total of four progressive jackpots, the same ones you will find on all of the Playtech superhero slot machines.
There are 5 reels and 40 paylines and you’ll see appearances from all of the Justice League team, including Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Cyborg, all of which appear as they do in the film, which is to say that they are pictures taken of the actors in costume as opposed to illustrations drawn of their comic book counterparts.
But is it Any Good?
There are some flaws with the Justice League slot. It’s a brand new slot machine and we have only just gotten our hands on it, so we haven’t been able to do a full-scale review. However, we have played enough to pickup on some disappointing aspects.
The first thing you will notice is that the graphics are very simple. Once you get past the images of the actors and actresses taken directly from the film, you have some very simple and even poorly illustrated symbols as well as an overall aesthetic that feels bland. The “non-standard” symbols are basic superhero signs on a grey background and the wild is the Justice League symbol, which is equally bland.
It feels rush, and it’s a feeling you get from the rest of the slot as well. This has the feeling of one of those video game adaptations where they rush it out prior to the film’s release in order to quickly cash in with fans. It’s not polished, it’s not well done.
There is precedent for great slots based on films. You only need to look at slots like The Dark Knight on casinos like Spin Palace to see that. But this is one online casino slot that ultimately falls flat.
