If you are an online casino slots fan, you already know that Scandinavian software developer, NetEnt, is famous for adapting films for the fans of their slots. In fact, NetEnt has made so many slots based on famous films. The Invisible Man is one such popular online slot, coming with great graphics and 3D delights. One other great film adaptation from the iGaming is Dracula. This horror-themed slot comes with some great features that will surely leave you excited, as well as great graphics to make your gaming experience better.
By now, you might be asking yourself what all these online slot machines have in common. Well, all these titles were developed as part of a huge branding deal with Universal Studios. These have led to these film legends being immortalized in online slots. Now, this time around, we have been treated to the Phantom of the Opera in Phantom’s Curse.
A lot of fans anticipated the release of the slot games since it was announced and now, it’s here. What many players do not know yet is if it will manage to bring down the house or it will be just one of those. Well, let us look further into the slot game.
Phantom’s Curse Theme
Players will be treated to yet another classic horror remake in this casino game. Speaking about the film, the Phantom of the Opera faced its own issues before it was released. Universal Studios made the film in 1925 and it starred Lon Chaney as Erik. Erik was a mysterious phantom who found pleasure in haunting the Paris Opera House. In 1943, the film was remade again.
Back to the slot game, Phantom’s curse comes with 5 reels and 4 rows. Excitingly, it comes with 40 fixed paylines, which means you cannot change the number of paylines that you want to bet. However, 40 paylines is a good number as it gives you better chances of winning. Players on mobile can also play the game, as it has been adapted for mobile too.
Phantom’s Curse How to Play
Universal Monsters the Phantom’s Curse is played on five reels and 4 rows. While 40 paylines are standard, we would expect another 10 to be available. The 40 win lines do appear fixed, though. In order to start playing the game, you have to bet between 0.01, all the way up to 1.00. Despite the fact that the paylines are fixed, you will be able to adjust your betting level from 1 to 10. This will raise your stake to 200.00.
As you play the base game, you will notice that most symbols appear stacked. However, this is nothing to get excited about as most of the are royal symbols, which are the low-value symbols. The symbols pay as follows:
• Diamonds, spades, hearts, and clubs pay from 5x to 20x per line bet if you manage to get between 3 to 5 on the reels
• The mirror and the dagger will pay between 10x and 40x
• If you land between 3 and 5 yellow roses, you will be awarded between 10x and 50x
• The phantom’s ring will pay between 10x and 60x for 30AK to 50AK
• Christine will award between 15x and 100x
• The phantom will pay between 15x and 200x
Phantom’s Curse Features
For most slot players, the payouts in this game will seem poor. However, one thing to note is that the stacked symbols in the game can actually create winning combinations with each other. These stacked symbols will be able to create winning combinations with masked phantom symbols. On the other hand, masks will create winning combinations with stacked mash symbols. If you manage to land 5 matching symbols on a paying line, you will win 200 coins. In addition, to note is the fact that the stacks will only appear on the first and fifth reels and may act as wilds.
Pick and Click
If you manage to fill the first reel with stacked phantom symbols, as well as the 5th reel with stacked Christine symbols, you will activate this feature. When the feature is activated, you will be required to choose from 8 roses in order to reveal coins or blockers. Choosing a blocker advances you to the next stage where you must choose from mirrors in order to reveal a multiplier for your wins.
Masked Phantom Re-Spin
Managing to drop stacked phantom symbols on the first reel, as well as stacked mask symbols on the 5th reel will award you a re-spin. In addition, all mask and bonus symbols will then turn wild.
Free spins will be triggered if you land 3 chandelier symbols, which are the scatters, on the first, third, and fifth reels. When the feature is activated, you will see a chandelier swing on the reels with a rope that is connected to one of the reels. The rope will be cut each time that a masked phantom symbol lands on a reel. This plays out until all of the ropes are cut and the feature ends. During this feature, the phantom symbol will act as a wild symbol.
We really think that this is a decent release but some players may think it has too much volatility. All the same, players can have so much fun from all the bonus action in the game. In addition, all the stacked symbols in the game, as well as the free spins, will give players the change to get some huge wins.
