Based on the 2013 film of the same name, this Man of Steel mobile slot is surprisingly good thanks to the walking wilds.
If the Man of Steel movie was all style, but very little substance, this Playtech slot game is all substance, but lacks style.
Which is surprising coming from a provider that rarely does anything wrong in the graphics department. Even old games like A Night Out game have a certain charm.
Thank-fully, you’ll soon overlook the weird looking Martha Kent, and the empty-eyed Superman and General Zod on the side of the reels.
Walking wilds, in case you didn’t know, is when a wild lands on the reels, and it will start ‘walking’ from one side of the reels to the next.
That’s because you get two wilds here, Superman who walks from the left to the right, and Zod, who walks from the right to the left.
Why is that useful? Because it simply means easier wins as the wilds are plentiful, and so much fun to watch as each spin seems to bring new ones on screen.
But what makes this Man of Steel online slot particularly special is the fact that there are two free spin games.
The Battle for Earth free spins will show up often, especially as they trigger when Zod and Superman wilds meet. You then get a potentially infinite amount of free spins, and 4 types of wilds on screen.
The Krypton free games are particularly special, as you get bigger reels, 50 paylines instead of 25, and richer symbol payouts.
However, these are hard to find at best.
To be honest, we were happy to play on this Man of Steel video slot for a fair while, before we even realised that there was a second set of bonus games.
Why? Because those walking wilds keep you busy, the world engine bonus brings even more wilds and that DC shared jackpot is too tempting not to catch your eye.
Far more fun than the movie, and certainly just as entertaining… though as expected, not as good as the original 1978 Superman slot.

Shifting Wilds: Superman and General Zod wilds can land anywhere on the reels and will replace any symbols on each spin.
However, once they've landed anywhere on the 5 reels, Superman will move to the right on each spin, and general Zod move to the left of each spin.
Battle for Earth Free Games: When a Superman and general Zod wild meet on screen a battle commences!
In this case, it's a free spin battle, where you get unlimited free spins and you suddenly have 4 walking wilds on screen; Superman, Zod and Zods two minions.
However, this time, every time Superman meet any of the evil Kryptonians a battle commences, where you get a cut scene from the movie.
If Superman wins, the spins continue. If Superman loses the free spin ends.
After each battle, a trail of free spins will litter the reels.
Krypton Free Games: A Krypton bonus symbol on reel 5 gives you 7 free spins. These are almost impossible to get, but well worthwhile.
The reels then expand, giving you an extra row and 50 paylines. But this time, Superman's dad (Jor-El - or Russel Crowe to you and I) is wild and you get about 4 sticky wilds on screen.
You can potentially get as many as 10 wilds that stay sticky throughout the spins, but it's not easy.
You also get a whole new set of symbols based on the dead planet Krypton, who are each worth more than the normal base game symbols.
World Engine Bonus: When the alien spaceship bonus symbol lands on reel 5, the 'world engine' will blast up to 7 extra wilds on screen.
DC Super Heroes Jackpot: Win any 4 jackpots; the grand, major, minor or mini. These range from a few tens to a few hundreds of thousands in cash.
It can be triggered after any spin, including a spin resulting in no wins. However, the more you bet, the greater your chances of triggering the jackpot.
Just because the movie didn't shine as much as it should have, doesn't mean you should overlook this Man of Steel mobile slot.
That's because this Playtech gem has uses the walking wilds, or 'shifting wilds' as they call them, really effectively.
The graphics are as well done as with a game like Batman & The Joker Jewels slot, but with a jackpot and two free spins bonus games, you won't regret opening this slot.
