Romance of the Reels
Love is in the reels of this new romance themed slot machine from Booming Games. There may only be 3 reels, but they are jam-packed with all sorts of romantic gifts and trinkets, perfect for any anniversary, Valentine’s Day or first date. These symbols include wrapped up boxes of chocolates, magnums full of chocolates and glittering diamond rings (OK, maybe a diamond ring is a bit over the top for a first date!).
The slot also features a couple of star-crossed lovers (think Romeo and Juliet) who spin around the reels making up some of the game’s bigger base game prizes. Will they align together to live happily ever after? You’ll have to spin the reels to find out!
All things considered, this slot machine is a very good-looking game. The reels are set within a beautiful setting upon the Adige river of Verona. The sun is setting and the street lights have just come one to give the game a warm, hazy glow which makes for a perfect romantic stroll. The reels themselves are adorned with red roses and a decorative frame while the symbols glow upon the deep purple reels. Of course, this isn’t going to appeal to every spinner, but it is up there with some of the best love-themed slots on the market.
Size Doesn’t Matter…
One of the unique things about this Romeo slot machine is the fact that it fits all of the design elements and gameplay features of a 5-reel video slot into a simple 3-reel slot set-up. So, even though the game might look a little bit on the basic side from a gameplay point of view, there are still lots of exciting spins to be had with plenty of winning potential.
The easiest way to line up a winner is to find three matching icons on one of the 10 paylines. This will award a line bet multiplier as a prize, the size of which will be shown in the paytable (the prizes are always proportional to the size of the wager in play. The most lucrative prizes come in the form of a 50x line bet multiplier for three wild rose icons in a row and a 5x total bet multiplier for three ‘Romeo’ logo symbols in any position on the reels.
After that, there is 20x the value of the line bet up for grabs when three Romeo character icons appear on a line and 15x is presented for three Juliet character symbols. The line bets available to play with in this game range from just 0.01 to 50.00, making for total bets of 0.10 to 500.00 when all 10 paylines are taken into account.
Despite having just 3 reels, this slot machine promises loads more bonus action than your average 3-reel slot found at an online casino. For starters, players will find wild symbols – the rose – which can replace all other icons except for the Romeo scatters to complete potential prize-paying sequences on the reels. Three or more scatters will result in the awarding of 10 free spins which can be re-triggered indefinitely. Plus, the game will go into 2-way pay mode for 10 extra free spins whenever 3 or more wild symbols appear on the reels at any point.
Perhaps the most loveable bonus element in this slot machine is the x7 multiplier symbol that can substitute for all symbols (except for the scatter) to complete winning combinations. This icon only appears on reel 2 and, as you have probably already guessed, it will boost the standard prize value seven-fold. And if all that wasn’t enough, the game also offers the chance for spinners to take their wins into a double-or-nothing gamble feature. The odds are 50/50 and the payout percentage is 100% but is it worth the risk?
Slots to Fall in Love With
If you just love the theme of romance, then you will be happy to hear that there are plenty of slot machines online which tell tales of courtship, seduction and forbidden passion. These loved-up slots range from the incredibly cheesy and slightly gaudy Lucky Valentine by Red Tiger Gaming and Doctor Love by Microgaming to more tasteful tales of romance such as Riviera Riches from Microgaming and English Rose from Casino Technology.
Money can’t buy you love, but it can buy you some spins of this slot machine for the chance to wins some lovely jackpot prizes – which isn’t a bad consolation prize if you ask us. The new game just about falls into the elegant and sophisticated side of the romance genre, making for some tasteful spins for punters who like to get lost in narratives of luxurious passion.
But that doesn’t mean that game is totally void of any saucy excitement. That’s because there are loads of bonus elements which could turn your spins into big jackpot wins. Good luck!
