Playtech has released two new slots based on the 1960s incarnation of iconic superhero Batman under its long-term licensing deal with Warner Brothers.
The London-listed gaming supplier has launched Batman & The Joker Jewels and Batman & Catwoman Cash, with each game featuring footage and catchphrases from the popular TV series.
The first title sees Batman face off against his arch-nemesis The Joker, unlocking the The Joker Random Wilds feature to add nine extra Wild symbols to the reels for big wins.
Both games, along with all current and future DC-branded titles, are connected to Playtech's DC Super Heroes Jackpots. This major progressive jackpot will also be linked to upcoming titles including the Superman I, Superman II, Man of Steel and Green Lantern slots.
The games have been launched through a licensing deal signed with Warner Brothers Consumer Products in February this year, which gives Playtech access to the screen incarnations of a number of leading DC Comics superheroes. This will see a further four Batman-branded slots released in 2017.
"I'm extremely proud of our collaboration between Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Playtech’s innovative development studios," Playtech chief operating officer Shimon Akad said.
"The Batman Classic TV Series games, that will rapidly be followed by Superman I, Superman II, and Man of Steel and a whole host of other DC Super Hero branded games, are a premium addition to our best-performing range of the industry's leading progressive jackpot slot content and will provide our licensees and DC Super Hero fans with the ultimate Batman gaming experience."
