Wham! Playtech To Add Classic TV Series Batman Slots & OthersOctober 19th, 2016
In big casino news, Playtech has announced that amongst their big Warner Bros and DC slot games due out in 2016/2017, two of those will be based on the classic 1960s Batman TV series.
Holy atomic pile, Batman! Playtech Games has signed a deal with Warner Bros & DC entertainment, meaning we can expect a whole host of Playtech slots games based on the most famous DC characters to have made it on screen.
That includes, sometimes in 2016 and early 2017 huge movie titles like Superman I (1978), Superman II (1980), Man of Steel (2013) and Green Lantern (2011).
Granted, that last one may be slightly less exciting. But, to be honest, we’re not here to talk about those just yet.
Instead, we’re looking at the two Classic TV Batman slots coming in the next month, made famous by the wonderfully iconic Adam West.
So without further ado, here’s what we know. Quick! To the Batmobile!
2 Playtech slots based around the caped crusader
When every comic book film seems to be getting darker, grittier, and more realistic, it’s nice to have a look at a time where campier, colourful and ridiculous was the only way to go.

For those of you who may not be familiar with the original 1960s TV series Batman, you should know that it was wonderfully silly, but is probably one of the reasons the Caped Crusader continues to make such an impact to our entertainment.
And we mean silly. Where else would you get lines like:
“It’s obvious. Only a criminal would disguise himself as a licensed, bonded guard yet callously park in front of a fire hydrant.”
Or even this bit of script writing genius:
“Robin: Where’d you get a live fish, Batman?
Batman: The true crime-fighter always carries everything he needs in his utility belt, Robin.”
In one word; brilliant.
What we know about the The Batman & The Joker Jewels slot
The first of the two new Playtech casino games coming from DC comics, you get Batman set against his greatest foe; the Joker as played by the brilliant Cesar Romero.
With 5 reels and 25 paylines, this Batman video slot promises that you’ll have the last laugh as the Joker can grant you up to 9 extra random wilds to your game, after any spin.
But, you don’t have bet it all on Bruce Wayne’s alter ego winning. During the free spins feature you can side with either our Dark Knight or the Clown Prince of Crime, as these two nemesis fight it out to give you an unlimited number of free spins and up to 5x multiplier on any win.
What we know about The Batman & Catwoman Cash slot
There’s no secret romance here, as our hero confronts one of his most cunning adversaries. Will our intrepid duo survive? Will your wallet live to see another day?
Find out next time, when The Batman and the Catwoman Cash slot comes out at Playtech online casino sites near you.
“Catwoman, I find you to be odious, abhorrent, and insegrievious.” Actual words from Batman.
Meanwhile, back in the batcave, we can confirm that this will definitely be both a desktop and mobile phone casino game, which promises both large payouts and big win multipliers.
How? Because you can increase the multipliers during the free spin bonus games through the Cat Burglar In-Reel Burglar, which also triggers stacked symbol wins and can re-trigger the free games.
If that wasn’t enough, two scatters is all you need in order to reveal a mystery cash prize. Because who says crime doesn’t pay?
Are these DC Heroes slots classics? Or just corny?
Oh these are going to be corny as hell. They both promise classic footage from the TV show and the kind of hackneyed catchphrases that make so many people look back at the TV series with a rueful smile of nostalgia.
But, and we think it’s fair to say, this won’t rub everyone the right way.
Sure, we’ve been mostly positive about these Batman DC slots coming to Playtech mobile casinos sometimes in 2016.
But we’re the kind of people who use to watch the classic Batman with his adventures in Gotham City, and even classic Star Trek, as teenagers, and laugh at the wonderful ridiculousness of it all.
Not everyone will fall for theses 1960s charms. And that’s ok. Playtech are on one hell of a release schedule.
NextGen gets the comic books, Playtech gets the movie slots
You may have noticed that in the last few months we’ve seen some very DC like NextGen Gaming slot machines come out; including a Batman, Superman, Flash and Green Lantern game.
Other Top Playtech Games
- Great Blue
- Age of Gods
- Zhao Cai Jin Bao
- Incredible Hulk
So how do two casino software providers have licenses for the same characters and superheroes?
The difference is that NextGen have the rights to the comic books and the original artwork, from DC comics.
Playtech, on the other hand, have jumped into bed with Warner Bros & DC entertainment, calling claim on all their far more iconic movies and TV shows.
“The Batman Classic TV Series games, that will rapidly be followed by Superman I, Superman II, and Man of Steel and a whole host of other DC Super Hero branded games, are a premium addition to our best-performing range of the industry’s leading progressive jackpot slot.” Stated Shimon Akad, COO of Playtech.
That’s why over the next 6 months we can expect more than just Classic 1960s Batman video slots.
So if Campy Batman isn’t your thing, we promise there is far grittier and darker Playtech slot machines still to come.
Wait, did you just say jackpot casino game?
That’s right, because if there is one thing that Playtech loves most of all, is creating a huge network of real money casino jackpots.
In all these Playtech DC slots you’ll be able to win one of four progressive DC super heroes jackpots, which will be linked to all future slot in the series.
That includes that afore-mentioned Man of Steel, Superman and Green Lantern slots.
