After much hype at the ICE in February this year, Microgaming officially invites you on a flight of fantasy, with its latest branded title, The Phantom of the Opera™ online slot.
The slot is based on the successful adaptation of the 2004 film by Andrew Lloyd Webber, which grossed more than $154 million across the globe.
The 243 ways slot features 5x3 reels, with famous scores from the musical providing audio entertainment. The iconic film characters make up the high-value symbols that can be double stacked during play.
Two bonus features can be found during the base game, The Letter Bonus and The Chandelier Bonus. The first is based on the letters of demand The Phantom sends to the new theatre owners – it rewards players with a random cash prize when landing on the fifth reel. The second feature revolves around the famous scene of The Phantom angrily cutting down the chandelier, and when it falls onto the screen, can turn two or three reels wild.In addition, a pick-me style bonus game is triggered when landing three or more scatter symbols anywhere in view. There are three bonus features to choose from;
The Masquerade Bonus – This consists of a three-tier pick feature where players can win cash prizes, more picks, or advance to the next tier. Cash values increase the higher the tier, and when the player runs out of picks, the bonus round stops.
Music of the Night – The player is awarded with 10 Free Spins which include possible win-boosting features such as random wilds, wild reels, multipliers and more free spins. These features occur at random, and more than one can show up at the same time.
All I Ask of You – In addition to getting 10 Free Spins, this feature also includes Dancing Wilds™ where both Christine and Raoul feature as wilds dancing randomly between each spin. When they land in specific ways, they can generate standard wilds, a single wild reel, adjacent wild reels, a 2x2 wild block as well as a 3x multiplier.
