Batman And The Riddler Riches is a 3 rows, 5 reels game in which you play all 243 ways. The theme for the game is the old Batman television show. The symbol animations are only done when you win a large amount, or when you win during the free spins bonus, and then, only the major symbols animate. The minor symbols just swing when you get a winning combination. The game offers 2 different types of free games and a picking bonus. During my session, I only got to see the picking bonus and the multiplier free games. I never got to see the sticky wild free games. The game is a ways game that also offers tumbling reels when you get a winning combination. I personally find the old Batman television show to be super cheesy, and I cannot sit down to watch a single episode to its conclusion, but if you are nostalgic for the old Batman show, perhaps you will find this game aesthetically pleasing.
Batman and The Riddler Riches Review

“We’ve come a long way from the Prime Minister’s exploding cake. Or have we?”
Personal judgments about the old show aside, this game does have its appeal. You are always eligible to win 1 of 4 progressive jackpots. The wins aren’t very big, but they are frequent, so if you are looking to prolong your time on device, this game seems to deliver. I liked the picking bonus. I like pick bonuses where you pick until you match an award. My reason for liking these bonuses is because I get something to do as the player, as opposed to watching reels spin again, and again. I am not sure how much luck had to do with the number of bonus triggers I saw, but I got 4 triggers, and from each trigger, I got very high awards. Finally, although I spent the vast majority of my session on the negative side of the return, my session ended well positive. The help screens are concise, and complete.
The game is rather boring to look at. The background is a checkerboard with question marks (Riddler theme). It is not easy to decipher how much your bet multiplier is. You always play 243 ways, and the unit bet is 25 cents. I was betting a Euro on each game, so my multiplier was 4. Meaning that if I won a combination that paid 10 times my bet multiplier, I would get 40 cents. In the old show, Robin used to always exclaim to Batman: “Holy such, and such, Batman…” On the top of the game board, from time to time you will see a phrase like: “Holy Jackpots, Batman” which just caused me to roll my eyes. There was one particular idiosyncracie that I did not like. I never got bonus symbols after a tumble, which leads me to believe that after combinations are evaluated, the replenishing pool is different from the pool that originally fills the board. To further strengthen my belief, I noticed that if there was any win at all, and the original board contained bonus symbols, the bonus symbols would always be removed alongside the winning symbols, unless there was a bonus trigger, in which case they remained on the board until the rest of the wins ran out, then I’d get the bonus.
