The Dark Knight Slot Game

The Dark Knight is the second part of Chris Nolan’s trilogy success about Batman played by Christian Bale. The slot based on the movie was created by Microgaming and has been an enormous success. Heath Ledger played the Joker, his last performance before he died from an overdose, a part for which he also received an Academy Award. The creator Microgaming has been extra lovely while creating this slot and connected not less than four progressive jackpots that are also linked to mega moolah. For you who love the movie and a slot game, this is the perfect combination since Microgaming is succeeding in creating the magic from the film into this brilliant video slot.

The slot The Dark Knight has five wheels with 243 different pay lines, classic Microgaming numbers. To be fair, Microgaming slots are 243 different combinations. You can get both free spins and wilds on the slot, and since that wasn’t enough, all the wilds appear as stacked. The slot is done to perfection, and to get the full experience we recommend you play with the sound on. The music from the movie is great and adds a thrilling experience. When the Joker appears on the wheels, you almost feel like Batman, and it’s up to you to save Gotham City.

The symbols for winning are the Joker, Batman, the professor, the criminals, and the beautiful lady.
 
 
The Dark Night Free Spins

To get free spins on this slot, you need three or more scatters on the wheel. The symbol for the scatter is a wall painting, and thanks to this, you’ll be able to get 15 free spins. The multiplicator is 2x the stake and this amount you start with, but if you’re lucky you can get more. During the free spins mode, you’re able to win 4,000,000 coins.
 
 
The Dark Knight Jackpot

There are four different progressive jackpots on the slot, and these can become yours at any time. The bonus is triggered automatically, which means you have no idea when it will appear. The different jackpots are named mini, minor, major, and mega and come in four different values. The biggest one starts at 1,000,000 coins.
 
 
The Dark Knight on your mobile

If you want to play The Dark Knight slot in your phone, that’s not a problem at all. Microgaming has created the slot in HTML5-technology, which means that it doesn’t matter what kind of phone or tablet you have. The slot will fit no matter what. IF you’re playing the slot from your smart device, you’re more flexible and can play from wherever you want.
 
 
Where can you play The Dark Knight slot?

If you want to try The Dark Knight slot, it’s easy since most of the gambling operators offer games from Microgaming. The slot also has a demo mode, which means that you can try it for free without any stakes. However, this also means that you can’t win anything if you play with fake money. If you want a full experience, The Dark Knight is the slot to try.

Remembering Spartacus

It has been 8 years since Spartacus first came to our screens, but the memory of the engrossing series still lives on, not just in our minds but in popular culture through merchandising and off-shoots.

As the name would suggest, the show was inspired by the historical Thracian gladiator Spartacus. According to records, the historic gladiator of Rome led a major slave uprising against the departing Romans in Capua.

Despite receiving high praise from critics and fans alike, the show was overlooked at a number of award ceremonies. This is possibly because it was to be overshadowed by Game of Thrones, another big-budget show of a similar genre.

Since the show was first aired in 2010, each episode has gone on to attract an audience of over 1.25 million and gained cult status in the United States, the United Kingdom, and the land the series was filmed, New Zealand. Each episode was granted a huge budget of $5 million to fund the shows much-enjoyed special effects. It’s no shock how popular it has become.

With all that in mind, let’s take a look back at Spartacus and discover how its legacy still lives on today. Jump with me to read more! Continue reading

Doctor’s Orders: The Verdict on the Female Doctor

When it was first revealed that the Doctor who would supersede Peter Capaldi would be a woman, it didn’t take long for a Twitter storm amongst misogynists to brew.

Which mainly told us that people fear change. Doctor Who is pretty much a British institution. We’ve had 12 male Doctors, so it’s only natural that some narrow-viewed people thought the boat shouldn’t be rocked and the role should be gender specific. My favourite comment so far which I’ve stumbled across on social media comments sections is “I accept that she’s female, but does she also have to be Northern?”. Of course, there were a lot of crasser things being stated. But it taught me a lot about inclusivity and diversity in the media. Which should come as no surprise, given that viewers have been conditioned to like an archetypal casting and role.

Casting Jodie Whittaker was definitely a gamble for the showrunners. They would have had better odds if they played Cleopatra and enjoyed a few spins over at Egypt Slots.

Was Jodie Whittaker the Woman for the Job?

Now that we’ve seen three episodes from Jodie Whittaker, now we can finally make a verdict on her suitability to the role. A lot of people make the mistake of judging a new Doctor on their first episodes, yet first episodes after regeneration never really tells us much about what kind of Doctor we’re dealing with.

Whilst more people favoured Matt Smith or David Tennant to Peter Capaldi, he was still a hard act to follow. His intensely aggressive monologues captivated us, and we saw how he dealt with his grief and his anger in a better way than we’ve seen with the former Doctors. So, of course everyone would have had to get used to the change between the actors and the temperament of the Doctor. It’s no secret that the screenwriters like to mix it up between the Doctors, and could any actor or actress match the potent angst of Capaldi?

After the first episode aired, I waited for the fallout from angry fans affirming their beliefs that a woman was never fit for the role, yet there was nothing but admiration for her stellar acting and unique approach to the role. Sure, she was a little ditzy and “blonde,” but that can be forgiven – she had just regenerated. But there was so much to love about her, including the fact that she got her first outfit from a charity shop and her ability to stand up to a monster with a face made of teeth despite not even knowing herself. From the start she was authoritative, not overly cocksure with herself, and in short, pretty God damn fabulous.

Whilst Jodie Whittaker may be the perfect for the role, the casting and the writing for the companions is still rather questionable. Firstly, we all know that the Doctor works better with one companion. From the first episode we were overloaded with the four companions. Even though by the end there was only three, there was little opportunity to truly get to know each of their characters. It was even more difficult considering the fact that all they did was run around proclaiming variations of “oh my God” and “We’re going to die.” Yet, after the third episode “Rosa,” the chemistry between the characters seems to be coming together seamlessly and the rest of the season holds a hell of a lot of promise. The third episode was the first opportunity in this series to see the real humanity within the Doctor. There was no over-the-top melodramatics and a hell of a lot more gravitas.

Whether it’s relevant that the fact we have a female Doctor and the episodes seem to be becoming more poignant and relevant to issues faced in 2018, that’s a matter of opinion. Yet, it’s undeniable all the same. In the first episode they didn’t set out to save a whole race of people as they usually do. They set out to save one (rather annoying) character with whom we had a brief encounter at the start of the episode. Which portrayed the message that each life is important. Which was further reinforced as you saw him practicing self-care telling himself that “he’s special.”

The second episode was a little hit and miss, yet the third episode truly pulled the emotive punches. A lot rested on the third episode, as they met Rosa Parks back in 1955 and were faced with the responsibility of ensuring that history went according to plan. There was no threat from grotesque monsters. Just a racist time-travelling agent who wanted to disrupt history to make sure that equality was never a possibility. There was so much emphasis on the fact that little moments in history can change the world. It was clear that the Doctor along with her companions was highly affected by what they stood to lose if history went off course.

The Feminine Touch

Now, if you can imagine Christopher Ecclestone, David Tennant, Matt Smith, or Peter Capaldi dealing with the weight of that situation? The 13th Doctor has a hell of a lot more empathy than those who took the previous roles, so the future episodes hold a hell of a lot of promise for the series. Younger fans may not have got the excitement of exploding spaceships, chase scenes, and the threat of iconic monsters such as the Daleks. But more mature audiences didn’t fail to let the stark message behind Rosa resonate. Especially the scene where the racist police officer came in search of Ryan and Yaz because they had been “upsetting people in the town.” It happened in 1955, and it’s still happening today in 2018.

In episode four, they’ll be tackling arachnid enemies in modern day Britain, so, it will be interesting how they intend to carry on the emotive structure of the episodes we’ve seen so far. Yet, with that said, episode three was still worlds apart from episodes one and two. The trailer for episode four is now on YouTube.
