The Flash Slot Machine
Try Playtech Slots
The Flash is the newest slot release by Playtech, which belongs in the DC Comics series. You won’t be able to see the characters from the TV series, but you will be able to enjoy the comic book variant of Flash’s story. The slot is filled with features that will give you some major payouts and take you to another dimension. You even get to fight the Reverse Flash if you manage to get to the fight bonus!
The Flash symbol in action is the Wild. The Wild appears on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 only and substitutes for all symbols on the reels, except for the Scatter. Normally, the Flash moves with the speed of light, so at random, he can appear on the reels while the reels are spinning. This Random Wild feature is awesome, one that you will like in particular.
There is also the Battle Feature, where you get to see Flash and the Reverse Flash fighting. If you see the 5 Scatter symbols, the symbols that portray Flash and Reverse Flash face to face, the feature starts. Then, you choose who you think will win the battle. You will see 5 Bonus Prizes shown above the reels, which can reward you with 100x the total stake. If you see that during the Battle Feature the Flash symbol appears on reel 2, you should know that the Flash has won the battle. If the Reverse Flash appears on reel 4, the Reverse Flash wins the battle. If your speedster has won, you receive the prize that is active on top of the reels.
The feature is active until all 5 Bonus Prizes are won either by the Reverse Flash or the Flash. However, if your speedster has won 3 or more prizes, you get all 5 prizes. If he has won 2 or less, then you only get the prize your speedster has won.
Another great thing about this slot is that it is connected to Playtech’s DC Super Heroes Jackpot, so at any spin, you can trigger the Jackpot Game and win one of the Mini, Minor, Major or Grand Jackpots. Just as you trigger the Jackpot Game, you’re guaranteed a win. There are 20 Jackpot symbols in the Jackpot Game, and clicking the symbol will reveal 1 of 4 coloured Jackpot symbols correspondingly to the four different jackpots.
Theme & Design
As you load the game, you will instantly think about the TV series. In the background, it can clearly be seen that the Flash is travelling through the Speed Force. He’s either travelling to the past or to the future where he will face the Reverse Flash.
On the reels, you can see the Flash's emblem with the yellow lightning, as well as Reverse Flash's black and red emblem with the lightning. There is a symbol that combines them both, and there are playing-card symbols for the lowest-paying symbols. Then, you will see Jesse Chambers, the Green Lantern and the Booster Gold.
Wagering & Paylines
There are 50 fixed paylines in the Flash, where you can bet $0.01 per line and up to $10.00 per line. This makes the betting range from $0.50 and up to $500.00 per spin.
Payout-wise 5-of-a-kind combo with Flash’s emblem gives you $20,000.00 for the max bet. The Reverse Flash’s emblem gives you $4,000.00, while the combined one gives you $2,000.00. 5 Scatters give you a payout of $2,500.00, while all the other superheroes and villains on the reels give you from $2,000.00 to $1,000.00. However, Playtech promises a maximum payout of $1,000,000.00 if you fill the reels with the Flash’s emblem. This 2,000x the stake payout is incredible, and not that difficult to achieve. There is a 95.14% RTP given for this game, though, which is not that attractive. But what’s attractive is that you can also win one of the four DC Super Heroes Jackpots!
The Flash is a long-awaited slot by Playtech’s fans, mainly due to the current popularity of The Flash TV series. But this slot would mainly attract comic book fans and the DC comic book slot series fans. Needless to say, the game has simple graphics due to the theme but gives an astronomical payout of one million for the max bet, plus 4 jackpot prizes. It is definitely a game worth a try, and we would recommend it for the Battle Feature mostly, because, hey, you will watch the Flash and the Reverse Flash fight, and that’s awesome!
