iOS and Android, Windows and Mac, DC comics and Marvel, console and PC. What do these pairs have in common? They all belong in the “you either love it or hate it” category. Last time, we featured slots with themes from Marvel movies and it’s only fair that we look at those from DC Comics this time round. Here are the best 3D slots inspired Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and other characters from DC that you should check out:

1. Aquaman

Coming from the popular DC Comics, Aquaman is a character loved by many despite his limited exposure in live-action films. Playtech’s “Aquaman” is a 5-reel, 20-line video slot machine with bonus round and free spins. As the name suggests, it stars the King of Atlantis himself! The reels are surrounded by beautiful underwater imagery and sound effects are themed after ocean waves crashing against rocks. The high paying symbols are sea creatures but what you’re really looking out for is the wild symbol: an image of Aquaman himself. It acts as a substitute for any other symbol on the reel apart from scattered fish and scatters that trigger free spins.

2. Batman Reigns

If you’ve seen the Dark Knight movie, you would know that Gotham City is ruled by bad guys in bat costumes instead of The Batman – but this one’s actually not that bad (or maybe he’s just misunderstood). Batman has a wild icon that will substitute for all other symbols except for the scatter. Two of them will trigger 10 free spins where you can win up to 1000x your total bet. In addition, 3 or more scattered Joker cards will give you the chance to choose one of two joker surprises where prizes are randomly offered.

3. Man of Steel

Metropolis is a city under siege as the citizens are being attacked by alien warriors – but who’s gonna save them? If you’re not familiar with the movie, don’t be surprised by the name – Man of Steel is the original title for the movie in which Superman makes his debut on the big screen. This one doesn’t have a wild symbol but instead has a scatter feature and helps you trigger free spins through a bonus round, when you have 3 or more “S” logo symbols in view.

4. Justice League

A video slot that features the entire Justice League? That’s crazy. It is a 5-reel, 20-line slot with scatters and free spins (you can win up to 12 free spins), not forgetting an exciting bonus game. The high paying symbols are the superheroes: Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern. If you get five of the latter on your reels, you could win up to 5000x your total bet!

5. Batman vs Superman

This is one of our favourite DC Comics video slots – it features two bonus games with awesome rewards, high paying symbols, an expanding wild and free spins. Betting ranges from $0.50 to $100 per spin.

6. Wonderwoman Bullets and Bracelets

Want to play one of the most entertaining DC Comics video slots? NetEnt’s “Wonderwoman” is the answer – it has a wild with a big multiplier, bonus round and free spins. Play up to 20 lines at once with 1 to 5 coins per line. If you’re lucky enough, you could win up to 200x your initial stake!

7. Suicide Squad

If you can imagine how Joker is like in real life, the Suicide Squad is basically just that – supervillains who have been recruited by the government to work on a secret mission. This video slot has no wild symbol but it does have a scatter feature and free spins. Three or more scattered “SS” symbols will trigger 10 free spins where all wins will be multiplied by 2x. Five scattered “SKW” symbols will reward you with 15 free spins with all wins multiplied by 4x!

8. Green Lantern

So you like DC Comics? Have you heard about Green Lantern? A flying police officer with a ring that gives him superpowers to overcome evil forces? Yes, there’s a video slot inspired by him! This is more like it – wilds, scatters, bonus games and free spins are all present in this gambling machine. Don’t forget about the random jackpot feature.

How can you play these games?

One thing that new players find overwhelming is that there are so many different types of slots out there, from traditional three reel video slots to intricate five reel video slots with loads of features. Some games are very simple with only one button to press while others require both skill and luck for the player to get ahead. If you’re new to slots we’ll walk you through these slots and how to play them.

Step 1: Find a reputable casino online

If you want to find and learn more about online slots (or any other casino game) start by looking at the casino ratings. While these aren’t always 100% accurate they should give you a good indication of which casinos are reputable and which ones are not. And never hesitate to ask other players for their recommendations as well. I’m sure they’ll be happy to help you out and answer your questions. A few good ones like Caesars slots let you play for free.

Step 2: Create an account with the casino

After you’ve found the casino that you’re comfortable with it’s time to create an account. If you’re not comfortable putting your personal information on the internet then I would recommend using a pre-paid card. You can buy these in any corner shop or gas station. If you want to use your credit card to fund the account make sure that the casino is licensed and regulated before doing so.

Step 3: Make a deposit

Once you’re all set up and logged in, it’s time to make your first deposit. As is the case with most casinos the amount of your deposit has an impact on both how much comps you’ll get as well as the welcome bonus that you’ll receive. The general rule of thumb is that the bigger the deposit, the bigger the welcome bonus. It’s also important to note that not all casinos offer a no-deposit bonus option.

Step 4: Launch your preferred slot

Once you have met all the requirements for getting your welcome bonus it’s time to put it to good use and play some slots. Make sure to spend some time reading up on how to play slots before doing so.
