EGT always make sure that their graphics are on par with many top slots out there, but with this online activity it looks like they’ve tried even harder to capture the raw and refined versions of passion.
The whole gaming screen, including the backdrop, controls and grid, are steeped in dominant colours and multi textural aesthetics; you feel a whole nation exploding onto your device in a frenzy. It’s a powerful way to start your game.
Even though some of the symbols use familiar card suits, the graphics have been developed to create luxury even in the most mundane of places, and so a loss of quality is never felt here. Furthermore, when it comes to the more specialised icons, they come into their own, the imagery so tangible you feel like you can reach out and touch them.
Taming the Bull
Bullfighting, although very controversial, is one of the most renowned activities that outsiders know of Spain; it’s a wild and untamed sport, which is probably why it’s the symbol for the wild.
This wild isn’t just about subbing other icons save for the scatter, but it can be stacked too, meaning more money for you when substitutes and wins are made. That’s what we want to see when gaming.
Moreover, it gives a sizeable amount of money to those who find enough of them, between €50 and €20,000, with the values based on the size of your wager when you begin. All in all it’s a very giving wild symbol, and one that seems to make an appearance a lot.
Entering the Arena for Free
When anything says the word ‘free’, we’re sceptical, but with Spanish Passion there’s no need to be, for the scatter icon brings with it as many as 7 extra games, all paid for by the software.
The scatter can only show up on select reels – the first, third and fifth – making it more tricky to find, but when it does you get to enjoy money and several rounds on the house, meaning you can a little bit back for risking your hard earned cash.
Remains of the Day
We’ve covered a lot already, but there’s still plenty to get to grips with yet, most of the tiles being worth a couple of hundred euros, even on the lowest stake setting.
The card values are the weaklings of the paytable, coming in at no more than €2,000 (at the very top end of betting). What this show is that, while the lowest paying of the game, they still offer a lot of rewards when five of a kind are discovered.
Up there at the top, looking down on all the others, is the bull fighter himself, a handsome young man that brings with him as much as €15,000 and as little as €40. Even though the values decrease considerably for those on a smaller bet, €40 is still a lot of money for only three of one symbol.
An Intense and Passionate Embrace
We’ve certainly gotten our fill for the day with this slot machine – after a couple of playthroughs we’re all passioned out. Spanish Passion is a simple and easy to navigate game, with the added bonus of being attractive. There’s really no more to it than that.
Having no bonus round does ensure that the game is less tense and challenging, but considering there’s stacked wilds and free spins, you hardly even notice.
