|Jackpot Slot||Yes = DC Jackpot Slots|
This brand new Playtech slot is another entry into the quickly growing DC Jackpot series of slots. Batman & the Batgirl Bonanza is a fun little slot very much in the style of some of SG Interactives slots (WMS Williams Interactive). If you have ever played their Elvis The King Lives slot for example then you know what to expect. This is by no means a ground breaking world beater but it is cheerful and pays reasonably and the locked reeels 1&2 feature keeps things ticking along nicely. Great to see Playtech doing things differently this year and there’s definitely money to be made if you land a good bonus feature!
