March 2, 2017

At Bet365, they understand that many poker players also enjoy a few spins on the slots now and again, and similarly slots fans will often try their hand a bit of poker from time to time. The correlation between the two types of activity is high, so it is not surprising that many poker players want to know what is happening in the world of slots.

Well, if you’ve already got your Bet365 Bonus Code and have signed up for all that lovely bonus cash, then you may want to spend some of your money playing some of the best slots released in 2017. Bet365 Games is a great place to head as here you can play any of the fantastic slots outlined below.

  1. The DC Universe Progressive Series

It has taken a little while for the DC Comics Universe to come up with a rival to the Marvel Progressive Jackpot series of slots, but now it is here and four games are ready to play right now at Bet365 Games. Let’s take a look at each of the four games key details.

In all of the slots outlined below, players can at any point and on any spin trigger the Progressive Jackpot bonus (the more you wager, the greater your chances of triggering the bonus). This is a selection game where players select from Hexagons on the screen to select coloured tokens and by collecting the requisite number of tokens, will trigger one of the four progressive jackpot prizes.

  • Mini jackpot requires 2 tokens
  • Minor jackpot requires 3 tokens
  • Major jackpot requires 4 tokens
  • Grand jackpot requires 5 tokens

These progressives can range in size from just a few pounds for the Mini Jackpot, to in excess of £1,000,000 for the Grand Jackpot prize. Let’s take a closer look at the games you can play to give yourself a chance at landing this top progressive prize.

  • Superman The Movie

Superman the Movie is a 5×4 reel slot that offers 100 paylines and wagers start at just £0.60 per spin with a 500x your stake jackpot available to be won. This slot is based on the 1978 classic starring Christopher Reeve as Superman and features all the main characters, iconic props and the thrilling John Williams score as the musical backdrop.

The slot has two bonus features the Crystal Bonus, a simple Pick Me game, and a Save The Day Free Spins offering where you receive 10 Free Spins with Sticky Wilds and then at the end of those spins, Superman appears to turn back time and you’ll receive another 10 free spins with those Wilds remaining in place.

  • Superman II

Superman II is the sequel movie to the original above and features Christopher Reeve back in the title role, with three Kryptonian villains, General Zod, Ursa and Non as his nemesis, all imbued with the same powers he has. The slot features 5×3 reels and 25 paylines and looks very similar to the other Superman slot in terms of design, although the setting for this is the city of Metropolis.

Spins start at 25p per spin and can be increased up to £500 per spin. The Superman symbol is the Wild and there is a fantastic Daily Planet Scatter, which when you land on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin, triggers the Daily Planet Headline Bonus, where you hit stop to select one of five bonus features based on the Headline of the newspaper.

The five bonuses are the Battle for Metropolis Bonus, Phantom Zone Free Games, Skyline Fight Free Games, X-Ray Vision Free Games and Lois and Clark Bonus. Each of these games has a different set of rules and features and each offers the players a chance of a healthy payout.  

  • Man of Steel

This slot is based on the modern 2013 remake of the Superman story starring Henry Cavill in the title role. This is another 5 reel game which has 25 paylines available during the base game, but 50 available during the free spins round, on a slightly different reel set.

The presentation of the slot is superb with action taken direct from the film and a stirring soundtrack to accompany the action on screen. The game is packed with features including Superman v General Zod Shifting Wilds. When the symbols land on the middle reel together you trigger the Battle for Earth Free Games bonus, where the Man of Steel battles three villains on the reels, each clash generating more Wilds on the reel.

In addition to this there is also the Krypton Free Games bonus, whic is triggered when you land the Krypton Bonus symbol on reel five. This awards you seven free spins and takes you to the aforementioned new reelset with 50 paylines in play.

  • Green Lantern

The second super hero to feature in this selection is the Green Lantern, which is based on the 2011 Movie starring Ryan Reynolds in the title role. This is a 5-reel 243-ways to win slot which has a number of exciting features including a Collapsing Reels feature where winning symbols disappear to be replaced with new symbols from above, which can then trigger additional wins.

Trigger four Collapsing Reels wins in succession and you will fill up the block and you then trigger one of three missions with the corresponding charge. The more wins you hit consecutively, the higher the charge and the better the mission has the potential to reward you with.  The three missions are the Fear Fight Mission, Training Centre Mission and Secret Sector Mission.

This is a well crafted and cleverly designed slot which has a number of exciting features and with distinctive individual missions offering different bonuses and rewards.

  1. Space Invaders Slot

If you ever ventured into the arcade during the late 70s and 80s, then the one game that started the boom in gaming is Space Invaders. The simple game where you destroy rows of Alien Spaceships may be as old as arcade games get, but its retro style is the perfect vehicle for Playtech’s latest slot offering.

This is a 5×3 reel slot which features 10 paylines and can be played from £0.10 up to £100 per spin. It has a distinctly retro feel, with the slots made out to look like the famous Space Invader console.

The slot boasts some great features including Turn Wild, where the cannon at the bottom of the screen can turn low value symbols into Wilds on reels 2 and 4. The UFO flies above the reels and if the UFO and Cannon land on the same reel, you will receive a free respin with up to 9 symbols turned Wild.  All Wild wins in the game are doubled.

This is a perfect retro-styled slot to while away a few hours with simple to follow gameplay that can all be accessed from within the base game and it is a must play for any Space Invaders fan.

  1. Cleopatra PLUS Slot

Cleopatra PLUS is the next slot in the Cleopatra series of games from IGT (not the Mega Jackpots version). The first was a highly enjoyable game, but the second builds on that original and offers a great deal more content for players.

This is a 5×3 reel slot with 40 paylines and that may sound somewhat bog-standard initially. You can wager from £0.40 up to £800 per spin, which means it is perfect for all types of player from smaller stakes to higher rollers. The symbols on the reels are all in keeping with the Egyptian theme, but you will notice that the base game is somewhat tight as this is a medium to higher variance slot and as you play in the base game, you’ll collect scatter symbols each time they land on the reel.

There is a good reason for that though as the Cleopatra Plus slot is jam-packed full of features. In addition to the stacked Cleopatra Plus Wild symbol, which offers a 2x multiplier on all wins, you can also trigger a free spins round by landing three or more scatter symbols.

It is when you hit free spins that the game becomes hugely more involved. Here you enter the Bonus Map where you can pick a city on the map and when the city loads up, you can place your followers that you have collected at various points on the map. Each of these points will reveal a different type of bonus, such as a cash prize, or a multiplier or free spins. These are then applied to your standard 5 free spins and 1x multiplier for the bonus round.

However, as you collect scatters in the base game you progress through the levels and as you do that, you unlock more cities on the bonus map and increasing features. Best of all, Cleopatra PLUS records where you reach on your session, allowing you to pick up again at a later date without losing your progress.

So if you are the kind of poker player that enjoys a dabble on the slots from time to time, then look no further than this great selection of brand new slots, all ready to play right now at Bet365 Games. Who knows, maybe you could be the first DC Progressive Jackpot big winner.
