Where to play Green Lantern for real
Green Lantern slot will light up your day!
If you’re a DC Comics fan who also likes slots then Christmas has really come early for you this year. So far this December, I’ve looked at the likes of Justice League, Superman, Wonder Woman and the rumours are that there are still going to be a few more still to come.
But let’s talk about the Green Lantern video slot.
Green Lantern has been around for a lot longer than you’d think – since the 1940s- and aside from being present in comics, I’ve seen him in TV shows, video games and most recently, the 2011 film starring Ryan Reynolds. No, I didn’t think much of it either.
This is a fun slot that will appeal to those who like DC Comics and Green Lantern in particular. There are two pretty super features to look forward to, that I’ll obviously come to in a bit.
Genesis Gaming with another Superhero game
Slot suppliers Genesis Gaming were the company who made one of favourite-ever slots: Charms and Witches. And just recently I also reviewed another game of theirs called SuperWilds where the superheroes in it are…shall I say…a little bit of an acquired taste.
But Genesis Gaming is one of the better suppliers out there and have produced a slot here where there always seems to be something going on.
As ever with them, your experience is just as good on mobile as it is on desktop.
All the Green Lantern characters are there
It’s a 5 reel slot with 50 paylines. You can play between 5 INR and 1200 INR per spin on it.
Green Lantern has invited a combination of friends and foes here to be the symbols that feature here. There’s Green Lantern himself, Sinestro, Battery, Ganthet and the Power Ring. Green Lantern is the Wild and the Power Ring is the Scatter.
There are some cool ‘spacey’ graphics going on the background and you’ll see a ‘Bonus Bet’ button just to the right just to the right of the Spin button.
It will cost you a little more to play it meaning your minimum bet has to be 60p. If you do play it, this feature allows you to play all 50 lines plus an extra 10 coins per spin.
When the Bonus Bet is activated, you stand to win 50X on scatter pays. It’s worth noting that you can only the activate the Ring Feature if you’re playing the game in Bonus Bet mode. To make things easier for you, you only have to press the button once for it to stay in bonus Bet mode; after that, you just keep on pressing Spin and it will remain with the bigger bet in place.
There’s a little jingly tune played every time you secure a win but if you’re going to play it for a long session you might not want to be hearing it time and time again.
But that’s up to you.
Battle galore in the Ring Feature
I’ve mentioned the Bonus Bet needing to be activated in order to get the Ring Feature. So I’ll start with that one in terms of the features present in this slot.
Three or more Scatter symbols activate a mid-air battle between Green Lantern himself and his arch-rival Sinestro where they throw energy beams at each other. Often there are several changes of momentum during the battle with one being in control of proceedings, then the other.
When all is said and done, a winner is found. If it’s Green Lantern, you’ll get paid 100x your stake. If it’s not, you’ll get a prize depending on where the green beam ends.
Sometimes those guys at Genesis like to do things their own way and one example is how the free games are activated. Here you get them when the Battery symbol lands on reel 3 and the Green Lantern lands on reels 2 and 4 and you get 24 of them.
During the Free Spins round, pays are quadrupled whenever the Green Lantern substitutes in a winning combo. Every Battery symbol that appears adds an extra Green Lantern symbol to reels 2 and 4 for the remainder of the free spins. Free Spins cannot be retriggered though, sadly.
I suppose when there are 24 of them that’s understandable.
No huge surprises on the Wilds front from Genesis because they do what they usually do. They substitute for all other symbols except the Scatter. Any win secured using a Wild pays out at 2x the normal amount.
Entertaining but slightly stingy free games
As I started by saying, I’ve had a lot of DC Comic-themed slots appear Under the Radar recently and compared to all the others, this one is roughly in the middle in terms of quality. Justice League is arguably the best but I won’t be mean and nominate one as the weakest.
That’s just not the way I roll.
Visually it’s a good one and it’s one of those busy little slots where something seems to be happening with every spin.
The Ring Feature is pretty cool and there’s a real sense of anticipation as sworn enemies the Green Lantern and Sinestro go at it like Muhammad Ali and George Foreman all those years ago. Well, except for the boxing gloves and remembering that they’re actually flying while they’re fighting.
If there’s one little area of disappointment regarding this game, it’s that the free games don’t always reward you as much as you’d think. 24 free games should be enough to secure a seriously big win but that’s not how it tends to pan out. Sometimes you can spin and spin and walk away with a pretty mediocre prize.
But this will appeal to lovers of Super Hero slots and you’ll have fun playing it.
