The Poet with the Big Nose
The design of this game is all displayed on a regularly used layout, so you’ll be spinning five reels which also have a total of three rows. It’s upon these reels that you’ll find the various different symbols, and because the story is set in 17th century France, you’ll find that all of the characters are dressed in the style of such. Of course, Cyrano himself is one of the icons, dressed up in a purple hat with a scroll and quill in his hands. Roxanne provides a second symbol, adorned in her finery and clutching on to one of her lover’s written pieces. A third character is presented in the form of a man holding a sword, perhaps one of the Gascon Cadets from the French forces. And finally, the game’s logo makes up a fourth icon, and these are all joined by the regularly seen A, K and Q symbols.
Not only does this game incorporate some intriguing icons alongside its reels and rows, but players will also see that there have been 20 different bet lines included as well. However, for those gamers who have a preference for customising these, you have the ability to do so at your own leisure. Further to this, you’re also able to switch around the value of the wager that you play per spin, and this is done with the arrows to the right hand side of the ‘Per Line’ box. Here, you can choose from a range of between $0.01 per active line and $10 per active line. Therefore, with all lines active, you’ll be able to play a maximum overall wager of $200 per spin.
A Tale of Two Lovers and Their Specials
There’s one or two additional specialities included in the game, and the first of these can be seen as soon as you’ve started spinning the reels and forming wins. This feature is known as the ‘Tumbling Reels’, which is triggered once a win comes into view. Once your wins have been awarded, the symbols included within it will disappear and leave spaces for new icons to fall from the top of the screen. These will fill the gaps, and if more wins are formed, the tumbling reels will come into play once more. This continues on until no further wins are crafted.
There’s also the inclusion of a wild symbol in Cyrano, and this is represented by the icon which displays the word, ‘WILD’ on it. As such, it will stand in for any other symbol on the reels, with the exception of the scatters. The wild can only appear on reels two, three and four.
Finally, the game has also had a freespin round incorporated into it. In order to trigger this round, you’ll need to spin three ‘BONUS’ icons onto reels one, two and three. You’ll be given a total of six freespins, and the ‘BONUS’ symbol is only able to show up on the aforementioned reels. During this round, the character icons will become scatters, paying out wherever they show up.
The Poet and His Girl
Not that we’re specifically huge fans of love stories on the whole, we do enjoy them every now and again, and Cyrano is definitely one of the reasons behind that. It’s intriguing, has a great back story and allows all players to access some nice special features as well.
