Netent introduces Phantom of the Opera Video Slot Game
Netent have just developed and released a Phantom of the Opera video slot game. They are masters in field of casino gaming and this new video slot likely to be extremely popular with all across the board.
Those of you who remember the 1986 musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Phantom of the Opera, will recall the wonderful soundtrack he produced. All the music this opera was classically brilliant and pretty much all of it became a global hit.
Phantom of the Opera tells the story of an opera house believed to be haunted by a disfigured man. The Phantom who lives below the building falls in love with a young operatic singer. The Netent video slot game is based on the 1943 film by Universal Studio which inspired the musical some 40 years later.
This video slot has 5 reels with 4 rows and 40 pay-lines. The lines pay both ways which is a generous feature. There are ten themed symbols, a scatter symbol, two wilds and three bonus symbols which act as wilds.
The game has two bonus features. The free spins feature is triggered by the three scatter symbol. The other bonus is triggered by landing the two main character symbols on the first and last reels. The main features of the game are wilds, free spins, bonus game, multiplier and scatter symbols.
Most of you will probably remember the 1986 musical rather than the 1943 film of the same name. Therefore you might be disappointed that the soundtrack does not feature that fantastic music. Having said that the soundtrack used for the video game is very dramatic, if not surprising a first.
This video slot game has been thematically designed with high-resolution graphics. The background setting of the screen is the opera house and the symbols are clear but could be described as lacking in colour. Not all the symbols are set in a tile which gives the game some visual depth. That does not affect the game because they are easily read.
This video slot game has plenty of winning opportunities without having to pump money into it. There are plenty of free spin opportunities. The sticky wilds and re-spins are also frequent and the pick and click bonus game adds excitement. The bet wagering varies from 0.20 to 200. The maximum win is 800 coins.
The return to the player is 96.57% which is average for most video slot machines. That does not mean that it will not payout sizeable wins on a random basis.
This video slot game should be appealing to most slot machine players especially movie or opera buffs who might understand the theme.
This game has introduced some new methods of winning on a slot machine, maybe that will turn out to be appealing to players. That remains to be seen.
We found playing the game to be a very pleasant experience. Netent casino software is playable using web browser from your PC, tablet or mobile device.
