A Review of The Dark Knight & The Dark Knight Rises Pokies from Microgaming

May 22, 2014

Microgaming has released several great branded pokies such as Hitman, The Osbournes, Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider Secret of the Sword (aka Tomb Raider 1 and 2) and Playboy, but their most successful branded pokies are generally considered to be The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.

These two pokies can now be found in numerous fully licensed Australian online casinos and they are available in the real cash mode and in the free play mode over Microgaming’s downloadable and non-downloadable casino platforms. They have also both recently been developed for Microgaming’s HTML5 and Native Android mobile clients.

The Dark Knight Rises mobile pokie was launched as recently as March 2013 and the Head of Product Channels at Microgaming, Neill Whyte, had this to say about this new game at the time of its release, “We are very excited to be adding The Dark Knight Rises™ on mobile – we consider this to be the best mobile game in the marketplace.”

He finished by saying, “We are working tirelessly to develop our blockbuster and signature games for the mobile arena, as we recognise that more and more players are turning to their portable devices to play slots. Expect to see more exciting games added to our mobile platform in the coming months.” These words came from the Microgaming website.

Both pokies from Microgaming have 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin and they both have some really big prizes to play for. In fact the prequel, The Dark Knight, is actually a progressive jackpot pokie which has four individual accumulating prize pools to play for.

At the time of writing, the Mini Jackpot is worth approximately AU$10, the Minor Jackpot is worth almost AU$100, the Major Jackpot is worth just over AU$16,200 and the Mega Jackpot is worth a staggering AU$3,639,705+ coins. The Dark Knight Rises may not be a progressive jackpot pokie, but it still has a huge top prize worth 1,780,000.00 coins up for grabs.

Microgaming sealed a deal with Warner Bros and DC Comics to create these action packed pokies which instantly became a success as soon as they appeared online. The Dark Knight™ pokie first arrived in casinos on June 28th 2012 and then The Dark Knight Rises™ pokie arrived on August 30th 2013.

They can both now be found in numerous fully licensed Australian online casinos such as Jackpot City Casino, Spin Palace Casino, Ruby Fortune Casino, Lucky Nugget Casino, Royal Vegas Casino, Platinum Play Casino and Gaming Club Casino. In addition to big prizes, these two pokies both have some great special features, impressive graphics and fun sound effects for players to enjoy.
