Staff Writer in Casino Strategies 17 Apr 2018


Being one of the leading software developers in the online gambling industry and a pioneer in Omni Channel/One Solution system which allows the player to play any Playtech release through a single account and wallet (regardless of the platform), Playtech has become a warranty of high quality games an a unique criteria for the gaming companies that are yet to establish their position. 

As an authority in game design and with years of experience behind them, Playtech was a logical choice for being presented with the honor of transferring DC Comics characters on the reels and creating slot counterparts of the most iconic graphic novels: Batman vs Superman, Suicide Squad and Dawn of Justice. 

Having in mind the depth of the developer’s roots in the gambling industry, it would be difficult to find a player who has not tried at least one of Playtech’s releases – be it a table game, slot or a live dealer game. If you are however a rare breed of players who are not so well acquainted with Playtech slot offer, here are 5 of their releases that you should immediately place on your to-do list. 

Age of the Gods

A wonderfully executed slot, inspired entirely by Greek mythology, Age of the Gods is packed with bonus features and progressive jackpots that can be won after every single spin. The main symbols are of course the highest ranked Greek deities who, if landing on an active payline from left to right, can unlock Pantheon of Power on Reels feature and increase your bet by x200 – regardless of the order in which the symbols landed. 

The Age of the Gods bonus is triggered when the relevant symbols land on the reels in the combination of at least 3 during the main game. When that happens, 20 Golden coins will cover the screen and the player needs to uncover 3 matching God icons to win Free Games. The feature will end if the player uncovers Hades. When the Free Games are unlocked, player will be returned to the same bonus screen for a new round of picks. 

Each of the Gods has their own Free Spins session and the player can trigger Athena Free Games with x2 to x5 multiplier, Zeus Free Games with a progressive multiplier, Poseidon Free Games with additional Wilds and Hercules Free Games with a stacked Wild. 

The Age of the Gods Jackpot bonus will be randomly unlocked and played as a picking game, where three matching icons of one of the Jackpots – Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power –  will have to be revealed for that amount to be paid. Winning one Jackpot is guaranteed during this bonus. 


Rocky is definitely a worthy tribute to the Italian Stallion and to one of the most inspirational stories of the big screen. 

Together with Rocky as the highest value icon, Apollo, Adrian, Paulie and Drago also make their appearances, whereas letters R, O, C, K, and Y are the lower value symbols which can increase the player’s bet by x5 if they land on the reels in the correct order from left to right.

White and Red Boxing Gloves will trigger the Knockout Bonus and the player will get to choose Rocky’s rival for the upcoming 10-round match. Every won round will bring a cash reward and the match will end when Rocky knocks down the opponent. 

Rocky Silhouette icon in a combination of 3, 4 and 5 unlocks 15, 20 or 25 Free Spins and the winnings in this feature are increased by x2 multiplier; this in-game can be re-triggered if a new combination of bonus icons is formed on the reels while the Free spins are still active.  

American Dad

You may not be a fan of the TV show, but it is very likely that you will become a fan of American Dad video slot. Apart from the visual aspect which does justice to the show, this slot makes the entire experience more interesting and unpredictable by introducing the Schmooblydong Wheel which can trigger Free Spins or re-spins, depending on the landing spot. When the Wheel lands only on the first and the third reel, a re-spin is triggered. Landing on the first, third and the fifth reel, the Wheel determines which of the features is going to be unlocked and how many spins the player can expect:

  • Stacking Stan – Free Spins with new stacks being added to the existing ones;
  • Roger’s Random Wilds – Free Spins and all the new Wilds that Roger can throw up after a wild night on the town;
  • Francine’s Holly Grail – Free Spins where Francine can become an Expanding icon after landing on the same reel as Patch;
  • Hayley’s Progressive Multiplier – Free Spins with as many multipliers as Hayle is able to generate by collecting signatures; 
  • Wheels and the Legman – Free Spins where the two characters will chase each other, leaving additional Wilds behind;

Superman the Movie

No true fan of Superman saga would dream of missing out on this slot, which is the exact replica of the 1978 movie. Together with a tear-jerking trip down the memory lane, the players will get a Crystal Bonus picking game triggered when the Bonus icons land on reels 2, 3 and 4. The players will then get to select one Crystal at a time, revealing multipliers, cash prizes and bonus features.

When Free Games symbols land on reels 1, 3 and 5, Free Spins will be triggered with the Supermen Logo icons locked on their positions during the Bonus spins. As soon as the 10 initially awarded spins expire, Supermen will turn back the time and trigger a new session of Free Spins.

Any random spin can activate the Jackpot game, during which one of the four progressive amounts will be won when the player reveals the matching icons  – Mini, Minor, Major and Grand.


Inspired by the famous 16th-century prophet, this slot offers 243 win ways and cleverly conceived Bonus games, each based on a fragment of Nostradamus’s prophesies. 

Scatter symbol on the 3rd reel will unlock the Planets Bonus, where the player will set planets on their trips around the Sun. Once on the move, they can stop anywhere on the reels and award a multiplier. Scatters can start one of the three Free Spins modes and activate the reel modifier. Depending on the number of Scatters, Earthquake, Lightning or Tsunami mode will be unlocked. Each of the features comes with a different special feature and the player can be awarded enhanced icons, stacked icons or extra Wilds. 

During the base game, a scroll can be unrolled with a Nostradamus’s prediction announcing a multiplier, a Free Spins session or a Big Win after the spin already in progress. This feature is reserved for the main game only and will not be triggered during the main spins.
