About The Dark Knight
Microgaming’s The Dark Knight is one of the most famous online progressive jackpot slots of all time. Not only does it offer multiple progressive jackpots which give away millions of pounds, it also offers you the chance to play a slot with a huge theme, a branded theme, and one which is familiar to people the world over. The Dark Knight is based on the second of Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies, starring Christian Bale as the caped crusader and titular Dark Knight, as well as the late Heath Ledger as The Joker, and Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon. So popular is The Dark Knight, that Microgaming have even developed a sequel based on the third movie, simply known as The Dark Knight Rises. From

Instead, they can select coin denominations which range from 1p up to just 2p. The good news is that you can wager as many as 10 of these coins per spin. The greater news is that this slot has a wagering range which stems from a floor bet of just 30p per spin, up to a ceiling bet of a positively slow £6 per spin.
Special symbols
Wilds are commonplace in The Dark Knight. They appear as Batman logos, and are fully capable of appearing on all of the reels of the game, and stacked at that. It is entirely possible that you can have five reels filled with wilds. Wilds can replace all other symbols in the game, barring the scatter icon.
That scatter icon is the Joker graffiti symbol. When three or more of these icons appear anywhere on the reels, players will trigger a free spins bonus game. Land just two of them to win back your bet as a scattered prize.

You will note that above the reels are free spin and multiplier counters. The multiplier is fixed at 2x the normal rate of pay to begin with. The Joker may appear randomly during the bonus round, though, and use his mallet to hammer additional free spins or larger multipliers onto the reels. These hidden treats can extend and expand your free spin bonus.
Pay-outs
Players hoping to win the progressive jackpot may be surprised to learn that there is nothing they can do to aim themselves along. The progressive bonus is randomly triggered. When it is, players will be taken to a money wheel, which they can spin. There, they will win one of the game’s four progressive jackpots. The more you wager, though, the more likely you are to trigger the bonus.
Final thoughts
The Dark Knight is comical, it is sexy, and it offers so many randomly triggered features. Throw in the fact that it uses audio and footage from the movie of the same name, has four progressive jackpots which are also randomly triggered, has 243 ways to win, and only costs at most £6 a spin to play, and you have all of the makings of one of the best online video slots ever released. Even now, a few years after it first appeared, it is still one of the most popular and played slots in the entire online gambling
