One of the most productive software providers on the market, Playtech, starts the new year off strong. They have several exciting ventures across the board, including not one but two DC Comic slot releases from this past month, a new Bingo game and further development in the area of Live Gaming.
Man of Steel Video Slot
First to come out of the Playtech factory is Superman-themed Man of Steel, playing with 5 reels and 25 paylines and using genuine movie clips and pieces of the original soundtrack. Players get to benefit from 4 special features, such as Battle for Earth Free Games; while Superman takes on General Zod and his warriors, additional excitement is delivered by 4 shifting wilds. The Krypton Free Games take the action to Krypton, playing on a new reel set and awarding as much as 14 free spins with up to 10 sticky wilds, with the number of paylines increased to 50. World Engine Bonus produces a terraforming blast which populates the reels with up to 7 wild symbols.
Finally, there are 4 randomly triggered progressive jackpots to be won. When activated, a mini game will prompt the player to choose among 20 jackpot icons until the required number of matching symbols is revealed and the corresponding jackpot awarded. Betting range goes exceptionally high which makes sure the new game will appeal to high-rollers.
Green Lantern Video Slot
The company has already announced the continuation of its partnership with DC on another superhero-themed video slot, Green Lantern. Released last month, the new game is based on fiction comic series of the same name, and 2011 movie featuring Ryan Reynolds as the superhero Hal Jordan. Many of the visuals from the movie have been used in this feature-rich slot with 25 paylines and 243 ways.
Collapsing reels will enable multiple winning combos on just one bet and stacking Wilds help land more and bigger wins. Every bonus game comes with 3 levels and players will be tasked with completing several missions, namely Secret Sector Mission and Training Center Mission. Finally, the game includes the familiar multi-level progressive DC Superheroes Jackpot, also featured in already released Man of Steel.
Not only fans of slots get to enjoy new Playtech products this January. Following the release of a number of online bingo games during the past few months, Bingo Bowl comes as the newest addition to the range. Set in a bowling alley, the game combines two popular entertainment options, bingo, and bowling. The ticket comprises of 10 bowling pins laid out in a triangular position, with numbers ranging from 1 to 50. There are 3 prizes to be won in each game – House prize, Lucky Strike Jackpot, and a Kingpin Jackpot.
The first player to remove all bowling pins from their ticket wins Full House. If this is done in a required number of ball calls, they will also collect Lucky Strike Jackpot. If the final ball called appears on the Jackpot Ticket and is not already marked off, they’ll win the Kingpin Jackpot prize. Having started to customize its games for exclusive use by certain casinos, Playtech has made this one available only at William Hill.

After obtaining licenses from the local gambling regulator, Playtech has opened a new live casino studio in Bucharest, Romania. The new facility will offer a variety of popular table games, including Live Roulette, Blackjack and Casino Hold’em.
