Game Basics

The Dark Knight is another online pokies game developed by Microgaming, the company that really seems to have a handle on the kinds of games Aussie pokies players like you love most. This video game, inspired by the 2008 Batman movie, also called the Dark Knight, is filled with movie inspired symbols, including the hero Batman himself and the villain Joker.

Even better, like any good online pokies game, this one is packed with special features that will keep you happily entertained from the moment you sit down to play until you call it a night. Scenes from The Dark Knight movie appear in the background of the reels, and if you wish, between spins, you can look at and listen to actual clips. Then spin a winning combination and watch in delight as the now animated characters celebrate with you, entertaining you with music from the movie and awesome sound effects. But wait—Dark Knight Pokies has more—wild symbols, free spins, held reels, multiplied winnings, and both base and progressive jackpots.

Scenes from The Dark Knight movie appear in the background of the reels, and if you wish, between spins, you can look at and listen to actual clips.

Dark Knight Pokies is a five reel "all ways" online pokies game (see Paylines section), 10 through Ace are low end prizes; the characters from the movie are the bigger prizes. With this being a Batman themed pokies game, the Batman and Joker symbols offer the biggest prizes. If 5 Batman symbols appear on a single spin, you win 2,000 credits. Batman is also a wild symbol, with the capability of turning otherwise non-winning spins into winners. In this game, the Wilds are stacked on every reel. If they fall just right, a whole reel—in fact all 5 reels—could turn completely wild!

The scatter symbol is the Joker, and if you get 5 of those on a single spin, you win 15,000 credits. The Joker is also what triggers the bonus game. In addition, at any time during either the base game or the bonus game, either Batman or the Joker might randomly appear independently of the reels to hand out more bonuses. Or, at any time, you could get to spin the wheel for one of four progressive jackpots.


One of the great features about The Dark Knight online pokies is that instead of using the typical payline system, it is an "all ways" game. You can bet the minimum amount or the maximum, or any allowable amount in between, your choice. Whatever your wager, you have all 5 reels and possible positions of all potentially prize winning symbols working for you. As long as you spin at least three matching symbols on any row anywhere in the machine, you're a winner. This gives you 243 winning combinations!

Betting Range

Here in Australia, you'll find no shortage of online pokies games you can try out for free, should that be your desire. But because of the tie-in to a progressive jackpot pool, Dark Knight Pokies cannot be played for free. Dark Knight Pokies accepts either 1 cent or 2 cent Australian coins (and some casinos also accept 5 cent coins). The minimum bet per spin is 30 cents and the maximum bet per spin is $6.00 (300 2 cent coins). You also have the option to bet more than the minimum but less than the maximum by increasing your bet size, as you wish, in 30 coin increments. Whatever your bet size, you maintain your 243 ways to win. However, in this pokies game, in your quest for the largest possible progressive jackpot, if you can afford to make maximum bets, you should always do so.

Payment & Free Spins

Anytime 3 or more reels line up with the Joker symbol, you gain access to the bonus game—15 free spins and all winnings doubled. Then, during your free spins, just like during the regular game, if either the Joker or Batman randomly appears on the screen, you could win more free spins or have your winnings further multiplied. Other exciting bonus features that you could encounter at any time, both in the base game and the bonus game, include random cash awards and held reels with stacked Wilds. As mentioned above, there is even the potential for the whole machine to go wild.


In addition to the fixed jackpots for five Batman or Joker symbols, either of which could be greatly increased with bonus payouts, Dark Knight Pokies offers four progressive jackpots! If it's your lucky day, after a base game paid spin, a randomly awarded bonus Mega Moolah wheel could appear. You then choose either Batman or the Joker as your mascot and spin the wheel. Where the wheel lands will determine how much you win. All four progressive jackpots are linked with the progressive jackpots for several other Australian online pokies games, including the wildly popular game (reviewed elsewhere) called "Mega Moolah."

Each time somebody, not necessarily in Australia, wins a jackpot, its value is reset at the predetermined minimum. However, with thousands of people worldwide playing these games daily, the jackpot values steadily climb until another lucky winner—maybe you—takes the whole thing. The smallest jackpot is the mini, paying a minimum of $10. Next, is the minor jackpot, which pays $100 and up. After that, comes the major jackpot, paying $10,000 and up, and - get ready - this pokies game also offers a mega jackpot with a prize that starts at $1,000,000!
