The Phantom of the Opera
Step into the sublime world of musical theatre with this gorgeous slot from veteran software developers, Microgaming. The Phantom of the Opera slot game is a slot for all the senses. The graphics are simply stunning and they are backed up with a melodious soundtrack that borrows from the original musical. Released in 2017, The Phantom of the Opera slot game draws directly from the 2004 film of the same name. The story originates from a novel by Gaston Leroux and it was adapted for the musical stage by Andrew Lloyd Webber in 1986. Over the years it has remained a much-loved tale full of drama and romance, and Microgaming have adapted it to the slot game masterfully.
Design and Theme
The dark and brooding colour scheme of reds and blacks create a theatrical atmosphere and help to completely immerse the player into the world of a 19th century opera house in Paris.
The reels are presented within a golden frame set against the backdrop of a theatre stage resplendent with thick red velvet curtains. Each symbol is represented by either a character from the story or a prop from the production. The phantom is, of course, the highest paying symbol, followed by Christine, Raoul, Carlotta and Gilles. The low-value symbols are represented by a monkey, a bottle of perfume, a rose, a musical score and a pair of theatre binoculars.
Paylines and Bets
Phantom of the Opera has a 5 reel and 3 row layout with 243 paylines. Players can use the tab at the bottom of the reels to set their betting limits. Bet size ranges from 0.30 to 15.00. The maximum jackpot sits very prettily at 116000 coins, which is enough to make anyone sing out to the rafters. The game has an RTP of 96% and is thought to be a medium variance game, which means you might have to wait a while before you get a win, but the size of the win should be worth the wait.
Special Features And Bonus Symbols
Microgaming have gone all out with the special features for this game. Each one is representative of the drama of the story, and each has the potential to storm the stage with a massive win. The first of which is the Letter Bonus. If at any time a sealed letter lands on the 5th reel, players will be awarded a multiplier of up to 20x their bet.
The wild is represented by the game’s logo. It can take the place of any symbol except the scatter and it can appear as a stacked wild in the base game.
The scatter is represented by a beautiful masquerade mask, and landing 3 of these will trigger a bonus game. The bonus game consists of 3 mini bonus games, of which the player must choose just one.
If the player chooses Masquerade, they will be given a selection of masks from which they must pick three. Behind each mask is a prize; a level-up, a cash prize or another ‘pick-me’ game. Choosing Music of the Night will give the player 10 extra spins, which also feature multipliers, wilds and the chance to get even more free spins. And finally, choosing All I Ask of You will give the player 10 extra spins that feature Dancing Wilds. The Dancing Wilds bring a little extra magic to the reels as Christine and Raoul come together in a romantic embrace, they also bring their own set of special bonuses, including multipliers, stacked wilds and blocks of wilds.
Microgaming have done a stellar job at bringing this beautiful and haunting story to the slot screen. Every element of the game has a touch of theatrical drama, including the special features. We particularly love the fact the songs from the musical are featured as the soundtrack to the game. True fans of the musical genre will adore this game, but don’t be afraid if musicals are not your thing! The soundtrack can be switched off and you’ll still be left with an exciting and potentially lucrative game that is very easy on the eye. Beginner will get the hang of it quickly and veterans should enjoy the unique bonus games. Th Phantom of the Opera slot definitely gets a round of applause!
