You need to set your wager per spin in the Total Bet section before the first reelspin. The price of spinning the reels varies between 1–5,000 credits. The are no classic paylines in the Batman and Mr Freeze Fortunes slot but there are 1,024 ways to win. Therefore, you can't make a bet on a certain number of lines like in the majority of slots.
A winning pattern is a combination of three or more identical symbols which are located on adjacent reels. At least one of them must be on the first reel. What a combination pays is calculated automatically as soon as it lines up on the reels. The size of the payout is in direct correlation with the total bet. The more you bet, the more you can get in credits.
You can spin the reels in two modes. A single spin is available by clicking the Spin button. A series of automatic spins is launched in the Autoplay menu. Click the button in the drop-down list to choose 5, 10, 20 or 25 spins. The reels will stop in three cases:
- You cancel the auto-play manually by clicking Stop Autoplay (replaces Autoplay) or Stop (replaces Spin)
- You run out of credits
- The set number of spins has ended
In the last scenario, you will be offered to resume the auto-play mode. You will get another series of automatic spins (5, 10, 20 or 25) if you hit Yes and you will go back to the manual mode if you hit No.
You can turn on or off the welcome screen video that plays as the slot loads, as well as the start screen, with the list of key bonuses of the Batman and Mr Freeze Fortunes slot, in the Options section. You can also enable or disable sound effects and adjust the volume there.
The control panel features a Turbo Mode button near Autoplay which controls the spinning speed. This option affects the time between spins rather than gameplay.
Symbols and payouts in the Batman and Mr Freeze Fortunes slot
The Wild symbol in the Batman and Mr Freeze Fortunes slot machine is the Batman. It substitutes for all the symbols except for the Scatter. For example, you've got the Robin symbol on the first and second reel and Batman on the third. The slot counts these symbols as a combo of three Robins. If the Wild symbol is in between two identical symbols, a winning combo is also built. The Ice-Cool In-Reel Feature bonus round introduces a new property for the Wild symbol — it will also be a random x2—x5 multiplier.
The Scatter symbol is the Bonus! caption against the blue background. It earns you a certain number of free spins. It also activates the Batman vs. Mr Freeze Free Games bonus round. The number of winning patterns increases to 2,400, and each combo can pay you up to five times more credits.
The regular symbols in the Batman and Mr Freeze Fortunes slot game are the pictures of Batman's objects and the portraits of the main characters — Batman, Robin and Mr Freeze. The lowest-paying symbols win the following multipliers:
- The Batarang, belt and chest — 5, 10 and 50
- Phone and gun — 5, 20 and 75
- The vehicle and the helicopter — 10, 50 and 100
The portraits pay significantly more — from 25 to 300

Mystery Progressive Jackpots
The full version of Batman and Mr Freeze Fortunes enables each player to race for one of the four progressive jackpots. There is no need to collect special symbols as you can win big with any spin. According to the payout table, the bigger your total bet, the higher your chances of hitting one of the jackpots. If you're lucky to see the Jackpot Games on the reels, you are guaranteed to get one of the four progressive jackpots at the end of the additional round.
You will see a 20-box field in a new window. Your aim is to click the boxes and guess the colour behind them. There are four of them in total:
- Two green boxes win you the Mini Jackpot
- Three blue boxes get you the Minor Jackpot
- Four yellow ones reward you with the Major Jackpot
- Five red boxes earn you the Grand Jackpot
Right of the field, there is a table which displays the size of each jackpot and also a scale which fills in as you reveal the boxes.

The round ends when one of the scales in the table becomes full.
