What do you get when you combine one of the best slot developers with Superman one of the most beloved superheroes of all time? A match made in heaven, that’s what. Playtech, known for their excellent work with the Marvel based slots, have signed a multi-year contract with Warner Bros to produce some DC based slots. Among these games will be the new Man of Steel slot machine, a character that has inspired comic book lovers for decades.
Man of Steel Online Slot – Coming real soon…!
In anticipation of the great things to come, Playtech displayed the Man of Steel suit at the 2016 ICE Totally Gaming convention. Their booth boasted with massive displays and big screens, but they also added a conference room where in-depth details could be discussed with fans. In fact, it was their biggest and best display thus far. But regardless of the big screens and fancy set-up, the Man of Steel suit probably got the most attention. Everyone is thrilled to see what Playtech will do with the Man of Steel slot game.
It’s not the first time that DC characters are used as slot themes. For example, Cryptologic was the first development team that introduced DC heroes to the online slot community. Using themes that stayed true to the comic books, Cryptologic had games for Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash and the Green Lantern. Eventually Cryptologic became part of Micrograming, who also took a swing at two movie based Batman slots.
Aristocrat gaming had even created a slot machine that you can play in land based casinos. They showcased the features at G2E 2014 in Las Vegas (Nevada) where their Superman – Man of Steel slot machine preview made a big success. This slot machine has been a large hit in US casino halls so adopting the character on an online version of the game makes perfect sense for any igaming software provider.
But what is Playtech going to do?
Playtech is going to work on three different Superman online slot games. Two of them will focus on the classic films, which screened in 1978 and 1980. The third slot game will be about the 2013 Man of Steel film. In other words, Playtech is going to brand the Superman character into the world of online slots like never before. They will also develop a Batman slot, which is inspired by the classic television series that aired in the 1960’s, along with the Green Lantern 2011 film.
We are pretty sure that the new Superman: Man of Steel slot game will be built with the latest HTML5 technology to make it widely available for all kinds of mobile and tablet devices. Slots that can’t be played nowadays on an iPad, iPhone (or any iOS device really) or not optimised for popular android devices such as the Samsung S6/S7 have no chance maximising profits and reach the right target audience.
Playtech with more than 600 popular online casino games in their igaming portfolio is a game developer who has pulled out all the stops to make this venture with Warner Bros a big success. And when we say they pulled out all the stops then you can believe they have all their offices, which are global, working on the project. According to Mor Weizer, the CEO of Playtech, this is a partnership where both parties stand to gain a lot. For Playtech it means massive expansion while Warner Bros gets to be part of their popular omni-channel gaming content.
So when is it going to be released?
The release date for the Man of Steel online slot has yet to be revealed (Playtech is not big on doing big game launches and they are even weaker communicating official dates for their product releases). But we have it on good authority that you’ll see them within the year and most likely still in 2016. It would be foolish from them to let the massive publicity of the latest Batman vs. Superman hit movie die off. Although Superman will be a comic book character that will always have an ever growing fan base. So here we go: Man of Steel casino slot for us DC superhero fans? Bring it on!
At what casinos will the Man of Steel online slot be available?
Most certain Playtech flagship casinos like CASINO.com and Winner.com will be one of the first casino operators where the game will be available for demo and real cash gameplay. As soon as the game is live we will give you direct links to the pages. Until then check out the other cool slots these casinos have to offer. There are plenty of superhero and movie themed casino games if you are into that.
We can’t wait to play this casino game. A cool slot full of legendary DC comic book characters!
