Amaya Gaming revamp DC’s most famous hero with this Superman Last Son of Krypton mobile slot, and none too soon either.
Whilst DC seem unable to bring out a decent superhero movie, at least they’ve put their brand in good hands with Amaya gaming, who can’t yet compete with Playtech’s Marvel slots, have made a valiant effort.
The Superman Last Son of Krypton is testament to that, with some great graphics and some clever bonus features, there is still a spark left in our red caped hero.
We love all the little details on these 5×3 reels. From the classic look of Superman, Lex Luthor and Lois Lane, to the fact that the A-K symbols resemble headlines on a newspaper.
The sounds, granted, are nothing much to shout about, and you could be forgiven if you wanted to play your own music whilst playing. The Superman theme tune by John Williams would go nicely.
Set on a burning Metropolis street, the wins come fairly often thanks to the wilds, and the pretty animations make you forget that the bonus features are not east to catch.
There are a total of three features.
The first is when you get 3 of the highest paying symbols on the reels, Clark Kent, they turn wild. We will let you guess how often that happens.
Needless to say, unless you are Superman, don’t hold your breath. That said, when we finally saw them, it was a beautiful life-saving moment.
The two free spins features in this Superman slot game, on the other hand, are far more exciting, as they might not always come as often as you like, they are generally pretty satisfying.
We don’t want to pick sides, but if we could only have one of the two free spins features in this Superman Last Son of Krypton video slot, it would be the Lex Luthor frozen wild free spins.
Here you only get anything from 5 to 10 free spins, but on pretty much each spin, you get either 1 to 3 wild reels. It’s where we’ve won the most, of that there is no doubt.
Lois Lane on the other, is less perky reporter and more day dreaming girl as she simply gives you extra ‘heart’ shaped wilds on the reels – though you do generally get more free spins.
To be fair, each time either show up, the change of scenery is well needed and welcomed, and we seldom feel too disappointed.
Much like reading a good comic book, the Superman Last Son of Krypton slot machine is entertaining, even during the bits where you wish they’d get to the action a little faster.

Wild Symbol: The Superman logo is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols on screen except the bonus triggers.
Morphing Wilds: Get 3 or more Clark Kent symbols anywhere on the slot reels and these will morph into Superman wild symbols, giving you a whole load of wins.
Very rare, but on when it happens, it's a sight to behold.
Lois Lane Wild Hearts Free Spins: When the Superman symbol appears on reel 1 and the Lois Lane symbol appears on reel 5, you'll then get to pick from a row of 5 Lois Lane heads.
Yeah, not creepy at all.
Here you'll be awarded with either 10, 15 or 20 free spins, with either a 2x, 4x, or 8x multiplier. The real draw is that you get an extra 'heart' wild symbol on the reels, anything from 4 to 8 extra symbols.
When you get the 8x multiplier, this Superman Last Son of Krypton free spins round is impressive. Otherwise expect around 20x to 30x your bet.
Lex Luthor Frozen Wilds Free Spins: When the Superman symbol appears on reel 1 and the Lex Luthor symbol appears on reel 5, you'll get a row of 5 Luthor heads to pick from.
Again, clearly not creepy.
Here you'll be awarded anything from 3, 4, 5, 7 or 10 free spins. Rarely more than 5 though.
You then have anything from a 1x to 5x multipliers, and we've hit all to know it all depends on luck. The reason you want big multiplier though, is because these free spins are made to ensure you get multiple wins across all 25 paylines.
Namely because Superman will freeze 1 to 3 reels completely wild, pretty much on each spin. That said, reel 1 cannot be frozen.
We've rarely walked away with less than 30x our bet, and on several occasions gotten close to 100x. But they are not easy to catch, so don't wait around too long just to experience them if your budget is running out.
A beautiful rendition of DC's most famous son, Amaya Gaming have done a great job of bringing the man of steel to life on all devices, from Android, to iPhones, to desktops.
This Superman Last Son of Krypton mobile slot doesn't try to revolutionise the genre, but with a couple of clever features and beautiful animations, frankly you won't care.
If you want something a little more realistic, and a little darker, there is always The Dark Knight Rises by Microgaming.
