It’s official, after months of speculating, we can officially announce that all future DC movies and TV shows will get the Playtech slots and games treatment.
Back in October 2016, Playtech told us they were launching a whole series of classic Batman TV series slots.
These turned out to be a huge success, with Batman & The Joker Jewels being the crown prince of the series, despite their slightly corny 1960s vibe.
We said then in our LuckyMobileCasinos.com Batman slot launch, that this would only be the start and the darker, grittier side of DC would be coming over the coming months.
Well, Playtech studios has finally confirmed what we suspected all along: hello a long 2017/2018/2019 full of future DC comic book movies.
In 2016 Playtech only got the rights to some of the fringe DC / Warner Bros entertainment portfolio.

Specifically, they were allowed:
The last three, you’ll notice, haven’t been released yet, but are in the pipeline. So they asked for more.
Mor Weizer, CEO, Playtech, stated: “This is a hugely significant deal for Playtech and we’re delighted to have a wider-reaching exclusive DC film- and TV-branded content licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products. We’ve had phenomenal feedback from our licensees based on the high-quality and calibre of the DC-branded games we rolled out in 2016.”
And yes, before they’ve even completed the first set, Warner Bros has gone full steam ahead with the rest of the more iconic properties that they’ve been handed on a silver platter.
Watch the short video below announcing all the slots from DC Entertainment.
We should probably say that Playtech haven’t announced the order of which they will release these new DC slot movies.
But, in order to be ready for the third release in November 2017 (see below), they will have to get the movies that have been and gone.
And whilst the Batman V Superman film no doubt disappointed many, the characters within are too iconic not to cash in on their popularity.
Yeah, it’s a little cold to view it like that, but lets be honest, Playtech aren’t doing these slots out of the kindness of their hearts, even if the guys making it happen to be fans of the Dark Knight and the boy scout.

The Suicide Squad film made over $700 million worldwide in the box office.
Thats some impressive numbers, especially as about 50% of that cash was handed out purely thanks to Margot Robbie’s short shorts.
That said, any mobile online slot that features Will Smith as Deadshot, an almost perfect Harley Quinn and one of the crazier versions of the Joker will have to have a mad streak we can’t wait to experience.
That’s what it’s all leading up to, isn’t it? The Man of Steel, Batman V Superman… all just tasters to the big Playtech Justice League movie slot coming at the end of the year.
The actual slot may come earlier, but we doubt it. Branded movie slots tend to be tied in with the release of the film, so no obvious plot holes or characters are revealed ahead of time.
Like the Wonder Woman slot? After all, isn’t the movie coming June 2017?
Maybe, but Playtech haven’t mentioned it. We suspect, if these sets of slots are particularly successful, that Warner Bros would be happy to cash in on their contract with the most popular superheroes around.
After all, after the Justice League, we are suppose to get a Flash, Aquaman, Batman, and Cyborg movie.
Well done DC comic book fan. You’ve clearly been reading our online slot reviews and our new slots posts.
You would have noticed that there’s another software pumping out DC comic book slots, and in our opinion, damn good ones.
The NextGen Gaming DC slots started coming out in June of last year, with the re-launch of cryptologic’s Batman, Green Lantern and the Flash slot.
We suspect that NextGen went straight to the source, DC comics, and got the rights to the characters from the comic books.
Playtech, on the other hand, went to Warner Bros., who they themselves have a license by DC comics to create their superheroes into film form.
It’s a bit of a small technicality, but big enough that we will end up with two sets of Batman slots – and we’re not counting the very many 1960s Batman games we currently have.
Who will create the best games? Well, so far NextGen have done an incredible job of breathing new life into these characters and slot games, so Playtech have a lot to prove.
You can never underestimate Playtech.
After all, those 1960s Batman slots we keep mentioning are… really good fun. Ok, the Batman and Mr Freeze Fortune is only just playable, but all others, including our second favourite Batman & Catwoman Cash, are pretty great.
“We’re excited to grow our DC-branded offerings with Playtech and showcase many of DC’s iconic Super Heroes in these immersive, action-packed games,” said Pam Lifford, President, Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
We expect that Playtech won’t ruin this chance by creating sub-par slots.
The really exciting part of all of this is that each and everyone of these DC slot games will be part of a larger progressive jackpot.
In fact, those Batman 1960s TV slots already host them.
So if you want to be part of the DC comic book revival, you’ve got to try these bright colourful games.
