Superman Last Son of Krypton (NYX gaming)
Superman Last Son of Krypton is one of Superman slots by Amaya / NYX gaming, released in 2014, and it isn’t by any means inferior to titles by Playtech and other software providers. It’s a 25 payline game with excellent graphics, superb gameplay and two different flavors of the very rewarding free spins game. Every Superman and/or superhero fan should play this one.
Although there was a 1996 cartoon titled Superman: Last Son of Krypton, this game isn’t based on it. They just liked the name and used it.
Although the game isn’t based on any particular Superman release but instead uses artistic depictions of characters, this is arguably the best visual experience of all Superman slots. For example, developers cleverly changed the card symbols to newspapers with headlines starting with a letter, e.g. Asteroid for A card, Krypton for K card. There are six more main symbols in the game, and when three Clark Kent symbols appear on the reels they will morph into Wilds. There are three Scatters, Superman, Lois Lane and Lex Luthor. When Superman appears on reel 1 and Lois on reel 5 the Lois Lane Wilds Hearts feature will be triggered, and if it’s Lex on reel 5 instead, then Lex Luthor Frozen Wild feature is triggered. When all this is combined, this is a rich game with 14 symbols, all of which have a meaning in the game and are nicely drawn and animated. Excellent work by the developers.
Lois Lane Wilds Hearts is a free spins game where some extra Wilds are added to the reels, and prior to the first spin you’ll get to pick a random number of free spins, Wilds and multipliers. It can go up to 25 free spins, which is excellent. Same goes for the Lex Luthor Frozen Wild free spins game, except that here Superman can freeze up to three reels, converting a reel into an expanded Wild. Both of these games are very rewarding, and are what you expect from a free spins game. Especially if you manage to pick a larger number of spins.
Strategy and Tips
The game can take a long time between triggering two free spins games, so be prepared. The game will eventually pay – and pay a lot – it’s just that it might take a bit of patience. It seems that this particular game is configurable by the casino as the theoretical payout (RTP) can be anything between 95.41% and 96.8%, so it matters where you play, and it’s best to choose a casino that will list the RTP of the game as then you know what you’re getting. But in any case, this is a decent-paying slot game in the worst case scenario, and a very high paying slot at the highest RTP setting.
Most casinos have it set at 96.00%, and here are ones that do have it like that: Genting Casino, Wink Slots, Slots Angel, Fantastic Spins. Foxy Casino.
Playing Superman Son of Krypton is a fun experience and will likely be a profitable experience, because this game does pay, and there’s just enough different bonuses and features to make almost every spin interesting. Thumbs up for this Amaya / NYX gaming title. It’s one of those slots where everything was done right and where every important aspect of a slot game has been covered.
