Play Batman & the Joker Jewels for Free
Back in February 2016 when top gaming developer Playtech signed a multi-year licensing deal with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment, anticipation was already high for a wave of incoming DC Comic super hero slots. Batman & the Joker Jewels is the fruit of a deal that has also delivered Man of Steel, Superman II and Green Lantern games. Let’s take a closer look at this action-packed, real-money online slot.
How to Play and the Game Instructions
Sticking with the popular format, Batman & the Joker Jewels is played over 5 reels, each with 3 rows. The game is fixed at 25 paylines, no tweaking available. Bets start at 25p per spin and max out at a whopping £2,500 per spin for those feeling particularly lucky. The game offers free Batman & the Joker Jewels spins and comes with two triggerable bonus features.
A Batman vs The Joker Free Game opens the possibility of a x5 multiplier on an unlimited number of free spins, whilst the Joker Random Wilds feature brings up to nine random wilds on any regular spin. A bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 is required to begin the Batman vs Joker Free Game but the Joker can pop up any time to activate his flurry of random wilds.
In addition to the regular in-game prizes there are four progressive jackpots to play for here. Named the DC Super Heroes Jackpot, the structure is broken into four jackpots increasing in size. The chance to play for the big money is triggered randomly and can happen on absolutely any spin you play.
The Batman & the Joker Jewels Gameplay
There’s been many incarnations of Batman over the years from comic books to TV and movies. Batman & The Joker Jewels celebrates the 1960s Batman Classic TV Series, a parody of the comic book hero’s exploits and about as far away from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight series of movies as you can get. Unlike Christian Bale, the actor who played Batman in the 60s, Adam West, was not stacked with muscles desperately trying to burst out of his armour. He didn’t even wear armour. The tone of the 60s series was light and didn’t take itself too seriously.

All of this classic charm and nostalgia has seeped into the Batman & the Joker Jewels slot. Authentic Batman, Robin and Joker symbols parade through a luminous pink and green game window. Batmobiles, joke pistols and wind-up teeth decorate the game and I loved the way Batman, Robin and Joker symbols transform into real clips from the original TV show when landing a bonus.
The game is playable on desktop as well as smartphones and tablets. I had no issues with the mobile version, it’s a great option for enjoying Batman & The Joker Jewels on the move. Further games in the series include Batman & the Riddler Riches, Batman & Mr. Freeze Fortune, Batman & the Penguin Prize and Batman & Catwoman Cash. OK, the name’s a little cheesy but all take place in the same classic 60s Batman era which is just so much fun.
Batman & the Joker Jewels Slot Review: A Summary
When Batman & the Joker Jewels was released last year, Playtech COO, Simon Akad, described the game as ‘a premium addition to our range of jackpot slot content that will provide DC Super Hero fans with the ultimate Batman gaming experience’, and the man wasn’t wrong. The whole classic 60s Batman series is excellent, and totally true to the source material. A Batman & the Joker Jewels RTP of 95% is the icing on the cake for this highly recommended real money progressive jackpot slot.
