At one time gambling fans could play a string of video slot games from premier online casino software developer Playtech based on well-known Marvel Comics characters like X-Men, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Avengers, Spider Man – Attack of The Green Goblin and many others.

Sadly, Playtech removed those games from its portfolio in 2017, perhaps as result of licensing issues. But whatever the reason, the loss of these Super Hero slots was a huge disappointment to droves of online slot fans around the globe used to watching their favourite comic book characters come alive on their reels, and deliver payouts.

Fortunately all is not lost because you can still enjoy many entertaining and high-paying superhero-themed slot games – just not from Marvel, but its biggest rival DC Comics. Set in a completely different ‘super hero universe,’ DC Comics has spawned some great superheroes, including those below that have been adapted into online slots.

Apart from these rated video slots, if you’re a fan of gambling there are many action-based slot games that you might love to play for fun or real money.

Superman the Movie slot (from Playtech)

Let’s kick off with one of the most iconic superheroes in the world, if not the universe – Superman. Developed by Playtech, Superman slot is based on the hugely successful 1978 movie starring Christopher Reeve, Margot Kidder and Gene Hackman.

As such you’ll find photo realistic images of those characters across the game’s 5 reels, which land in 4 rows and can yield sizable payouts thanks to its 100 paylines. Where the majority of online slots have around 25 paylines, this game has four times that many.

That means you’re four times as likely of making winning combinations. With bright and colourful graphics reminiscent of the film, Superman slot is loaded with high-paying features like Wilds, 4 x Progressive, Multipliers, Scatters, Bonus Games and Free Spins.

It has a return to player (RTP) of 95% and accepts a minimum bet of 60c a spin up to a maximum bet of $80 per spin, so it’s suitable for any budget.

Wonder Woman Gold slot (from Bally)

Wonder Woman is one of DC Comics’ most iconic characters and one that’s transitioned from comic books to TV to the 2017 film and eventually to online casinos in the form of Wonder Woman slot, an action-packed 5 reel, 4 row and 50 pay line title from Bally.

We want Gal Gadot

This slot has stayed true to the TV version of Wonder Woman starring Lynda Carter. That’s why game symbols include stills from the TV show of Carter as a bespectacled Diana along with her alter ego, Wonder Woman, and biggest supporter Steve Trevor.

Wonder Woman’s belt buckle is the game’s Wild and WW herself is the Expanding Wild. Gold Wonder Woman activates Free Spins when you land three or more. There is also a novel ‘Buy a Bonus Feature’ where you can literally buy yourself a set of free spins.

The game’s bet size ranges from $1.25 up to $200 a spin and you can win up to 600x your bet size, so this game is definitely worth playing for a shot at the big prize.

Batman slot (from NextGen Gaming)

Superhero-themed slots would be meaningless if Batman, the caped crusader himself, were not part of the gang. Thanks to well-respected game developer NextGen Gaming, Batman slots have come to the party in a big way, with some top-notch graphics.

This 5 reel, 4 row and 50 payline offering has graphics that seem to have been lifted straight  out of a Batman comic book. The blend of this old art form and cutting edge online slot technology works a treat, with a game that looks as great as it plays.

Symbols include Batman who naturally is the game’s Wild, while the Batman logo acts as a Scatter and a Bonus. Other symbols include Commissioner Gordon, The Joker, the Joker card and many of Batman’s gadgets including the Batmobile and the Batbike.

A top feature is the Bonus Bet which you can activate at a cost of 10 extra coins per spin. You can join in the action from 50c to $50 a spin and win up to 5000 coins.

Green Lantern slot (from Amaya Gaming)

Where many casino software providers go the 3D, HD route with all their titles, some like Amaya Gaming throw in the odd retro looking game to things interesting, and it’s popular super hero video slot Green Lantern happens to be  just such a game.

Inspired by the original DC Comic rather than any recent Hollywood offering, this 5 reel, 4 row and 50 payline slot boasts graphics that are simple, yet bold and attractive. They include Green Lantern himself, who is the game’s much welcome Wild symbol.

More features that can pad your winnings include Bonus Rounds, Multipliers, Free Spins and Scatters. Of course, a superhero wouldn’t be a superhero without an arch enemy, and Green Lantern’s greatest foe is Thaal Sinestro who also graces the reels.

Green Lantern’s minimum bet is 1c and its maximum bet is a whopping $1,000, so if you’re a high roller this slot is for you. It has a maximum payout (jackpot) of $50,000.

Why Superhero Slots are Super

People are fascinated by humans or other worldly beings with superhuman powers, and luckily so or super heroes wouldn’t have been immortalized the way they have in comic books, cartoons, films and high-paying real money online video slots.
