The Flash

Like a lightning bolt out of the blue, The Flash slot by NextGen Gaming instantly impresses with its hard-hitting special features.

The game forms part of NextGen's DC Comics slot series, and this time, it features the scarlet speedster a.k.a. Barry Allen. In the comics, our superhero has multiple special powers, the most noteworthy of which is the ability to travel at superhuman speeds. Wearing his distinctive red and gold costume, The Flash makes a regular appearance in the game, and he is capable of whipping up massive wins in his role as the wild symbol and through the Speedster Wilds Feature. Plus, even his enemies can help you score lots of cash in the Rogues Free Spins Bonus where you can pick Captain Cold, Mirror Master, or Gorilla Grodd to benefit from frozen reels, random wilds, or a free spins replay.

More about the Software Provider

Australian software company, NextGen Gaming has been making waves in the casino industry since 1999. Having proved its talents with games like Foxin' Wins and Panda Mania, it was quickly snapped up as an in-house games studio by NYX Interactive. NextGen Gaming's mobile-friendly, DC Comics slots series has proved a huge hit with fans of the brand, and after you've played The Flash, you might like to try the rest of the DC Comics slots like Judge Dredd, Superman, and Green Lantern.

Appearance and Sound Effects
DC Comics' Central City is the fictional city in which The Flash is based, and in the game's background, you can see the traffic lights, skyscrapers, public buildings, and hotels that make up the city's busy centre. If you're a fan of the comic books, you'll immediately recognise most of the paytable symbols which show the superhero's foes – Mirror Master, Gorilla Grodd, and Captain Cold – as well as a speedometer, speeding legs, a lightning bolt, the Flash logo, the scarlet speedster, and four playing card symbols (J, Q, K, and A). The soundtrack features a slow choral ensemble which intensifies every few seconds with pounding drums.

Bonuses and Special Features
As the wild symbol, The Flash can replace all symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols to substitute in winning combinations, and whenever he creates a win, he triples its value. However, if you make use of the Bonus Bet Feature, you can enhance the wild multipliers by five times in the base game and up to ten times in the Free Games Bonus. Bonus Bet can be activated by clicking the Bonus Bt logo on the bottom-right of the screen, and it costs an extra ten coins per spin. N.B. You can only access the Rogues Feature when Bonus Bet is active.

If three or more Bonus symbols come into view, you get twelve free games with all wild wins multiplied by x2, x3, x4, x5 or x10. If you're playing with Bonus Bet enabled, you get to choose one of three exciting features:
Mirror Master – following any free spin, the Mirror Master can turn back time and allow you to replay the previous four free games;
Gorilla Grodd – the evil gorilla, adds a random wild to the reels on every free spin;
Captain Cold – Captain Cold has the power to turn any reel containing The Flash into a frozen expanding wild reel for one re-spin;
The base game also has a Speedster Feature that sees The Flash race across the reels, turning normal symbols into wilds as he goes.

Paylines/Reels

The Flash uses five reels, four rows of symbols, and fifty fixed paylines, and has an average RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 95.47%.

Mobile Compatibility

The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
