Batman & Mr Freeze Fortune is the latest release in the new DC Comics jackpot series of slots. And it sees Playtech right back on top form whilst offering something new (for them at least). An interesting looking 5 by 4 reel board with a Polar Prize vault in the middle which regularly opens up to offer small bonuses. During free spins the vault is replaced with extra reels creating a new 2400 ways board (4-5-6-5-4) with multiplier wilds.
This isn’t my favourite of the new Batman slots but it is still one worth playing from time to time. If you do manage to land the free spins bonus then there’s a good chance you will walk away with a pretty good prize at the end of it so it’s more of a slow burner compared say to the Penguin slot.
Batman™ & Mr. Freeze™ Fortune
The objective of Batman™ & Mr. Freeze™ Fortune is to obtain winning symbol combinations by spinning the reels.

Multiplier WILD symbols are multiplied together when participating in the same winning combination (for example: a win containing a 2X multiplier WILD and a 3X multiplier WILD will be multiplied by 6).
All wins on the reels are multiplied by the multiplier shown in the Polar Prize Vault. This multiplier can be between 3X – 10X.
Mr. Freeze Symbol Transformation
All instances of one type of symbol in the spin result are transformed into the Mr. Freeze symbol.
Wild Mr. Freeze Spins
The reels will re-spin until a win occurs. All WILD symbols that were on the reels during the triggering spin freeze and remain locked in position during the re-spins. Any new WILD symbols that land during the re-spins also freeze and lock in position.
The Wild Mr. Freeze Spins feature can only trigger after a losing spin result.
During Wild Mr. Freeze Spins the reels are spun automatically using the same coin value as placed on the spin that triggered the feature.

Batman Vs Mr. Freeze Free Games are played on a separate set of reels. There are 2400 Ways to Win on these reels, and all WILD symbols on these reels are multiplier WILD symbols.

DC SUPER HEROES JACKPOT
The DC Super Heroes Jackpot is a multi-level mystery progressive jackpot that is linked to the DC Super Heroes series of games. A small percentage of each bet placed in any of the DC Super Heroes games is added to the progressive jackpot. The percentage of all bets placed is split between four jackpot levels, which are displayed in the upper part of the game screen, above the reels.
Any level of the DC Super Heroes Jackpot can be won through the jackpot game, which can be triggered randomly after any main game spin in any of the DC Super Heroes series of games. It is not triggered by any symbol combination, and even a main game spin that does not result in a win can trigger the jackpot game. Triggering the jackpot game is possible at any bet size, but the chances increase or decrease proportionally with the size of the bet.
Entering the jackpot game guarantees a win of one of the four jackpots: Mini Jackpot, Minor Jackpot, Major Jackpot and Grand Jackpot. The four different jackpot levels represent different prize amounts, with the Mini Jackpot awarding the smallest prize and the Grand Jackpot awarding the largest.
The jackpot game screen features a selection grid with 20 hexagonal cells. Picking a cell reveals one of the four energy colours, each one corresponding to one of the four progressive jackpots: Green for Mini Jackpot, Blue for Minor Jackpot, Yellow for Major Jackpot and Red for Grand Jackpot. When a colour is revealed, it fills one of the energy balls under the relevant jackpot field. Each one of the jackpots requires a different number of energy balls filled in order to be won: 2 balls for Mini Jackpot, 3 balls for Minor Jackpot, 4 balls for Major Jackpot and 5 balls for Grand Jackpot.
The player picks cells from the grid until the required number of balls in the same colour have been selected to win one of the jackpots. Once all matching balls have been collected, the corresponding jackpot level will be awarded. Clickping Continue ends the jackpot game and returns the player to the main game. The jackpot winnings are added to the main game winnings from the triggering spin (if any) and are displayed in the Win field, together with any other winnings.
The DC Super Heroes Jackpot game has a timeout timer. If a matching set of balls is not collected by the player before the set amount of time elapses, cells will be selected automatically and the corresponding jackpot will be awarded.

Minor: € 1,000.00
Major: € 10,000.00
Grand: € 200,000.00
|Contribution rate (what percentage of each bet goes into Jackpot):||0.99%|
|Win condition (the result you have to get to win the Jackpot):||The Jackpot feature is triggered randomly on any spin in a slot game featuring the DC Super Heroes Jackpot.
