One of the most exiting new pokies available for online play is certainly The Dark Knight Rises™ by Microgaming. With it's eye-catching batman theme, the pokie provides a fun and engaging game which includes a variety of bonus rounds and animations throughout. The pokie features Batman as well as a variety of villains and other characters from the series. Through a sequence of engaging animations and video sequences, the player is immersed in the world of the Dark Knight Rises. Featuring Catwoman, who is portrayed by the actress Anne Hathaway, and the character of Bane played by Tom Hardy, the player is treated to some of the cinematic experience viewers of the film The Dark Knight rises have come to enjoy.
With 243 different possible winning combinations in a given round, the five reel pokie certainly lives up to the hype. It is aided by the action packed sequences and engaging sound effects, which take the experience and make it a game destined for much playtime. With each bet ranging from 0.30 – 7.50 in currency, players have a variety of options to select from in determining their preferred bet amounts. With a maximum jackpot of 1,782,000 coins, the game offers serious potential for a large windfall, but unlike its predecessor pokie The Dark Knight, it does not offer access to The Microgaming progressive jackpot and its spectacular potential windfall. The game does however offer a substantially large jackpot as well as frequent bonus rounds to participate in.
The bonus rounds are perhaps the most interesting aspect of the pokie. With many scatter and wild features, the game often triggers bonus rounds which offer the player the same fast-paced feel and play of the film series. With a fight mode which can only be described as cinematic in its scope and feel, the bonus rounds offer a great dose of engaging presentation which affords the player a rewarding sequence in between the rounds of normal play. The symbol scramble is especially engaging, as its shuffling of the reels may offer winning combinations with their included prize amounts. Finally the split wilds bonus round offers the player a chance to reap the rewards which accrue when the wilds are divided in two, offering a chance to win big in a distinct manner. Ultimately The Dark Knight Rises is a pokie which makes use of its theme and offers large payouts.
