Phantom of the Opera – An Ever-Green Classic…
Following the story of the Phantom of the Opera since the literary times has been nothing but entertaining. Started as a novel back in 1911, this story has slowly morphed into a musical in 1986, a blockbuster movie in 2004 and now finally in the form of a slot.
The one thing in common that all the forms of this story has is its ability to attract the attention of millions of readers and viewers and to take them on an emotional roller coaster. In this game, you will come to meet the three stars – Christine, Raoul, and Erik, the phantom himself. Designed by one of the most reputable slot developers in the industry, Microgaming has truly done this title justice by giving us a five-star game.
Phantom of the Opera Mobile Slot Gameplay
Powered by Microgaming, the Phantom of the Opera slot comes with five reels and 243 ways to win. On your reels, you will find a variety of beautifully designed symbols including both low value and high paying symbols. As you did expect, the symbols that pay the most are the trio who are involved in a complicated love triangle. The mystery with the stars only begin here – on top of being the highest paid symbols, Christine, Raoul and the Phantom may also come stacked on your reels! With all these symbols, it comes as no surprise that a win as high as 7,700x your spin wager is possible.
Judging from the payout pattern from our lengthy session playing the Phantom of the Opera slot, we can confidently say that this is a medium variance slot. We enjoyed decent payouts throughout the game that came reasonably often. If you are lucky enough to trigger some of the bonus features early on into your session, maintaining your bank balance will not be an issue. In fact, the Return to Player (RTP) rate of this game of 96.6% seems to echo that pretty well.
The bonus features department is where all the star characters of this slot shine. In total, the Phantom of the Opera slot comes with four unique bonus symbols excluding the bonus games. For starters, we have the Wilds. The Phantom of the Opera slot logo is the Wild symbol in this game, and as usual, it will replace all other symbols except the scatters to complete winning paylines. Similar to that of Christine, Raoul and the Phantom, the Wilds may also come stacked.
Next up, is the Chandelier bonus feature. Activated automatically, a chandelier may drop anytime onto your reels in the base game. Whenever this happens, symbols will automatically turn into Wilds. The third bonus feature in this game is the Letter bonus feature. How this feature works is that whenever you get a Phantom of the Opera letter symbol on your last reel, you may win an instant cash prize of up to 20x your spin wager. Not entirely necessary, but hey, we will take the 20x!
Last but not least, are the scatter symbols and the bonus games that come with them. To trigger the following features, you will need a minimum of three phantom masks scatters anywhere on your reels. Having done that, you may choose any of the three following extra spins features:
- Masquerade Bonus: In this pick me bonus game, you get a go for a masquerade of your own! Pick the right masks and you will be looking at cash prizes up to 20x your spin wager!
- All I Ask Of You extra spins: You will be awarded 10 extra spins with Christine and Raoul dancing gracefully on your reels. When they come together, they will create massive Wild symbols (4×4 large) or award you with a 3x win multiplier. This is hands down the most romantic feature we have seen in a slot!
- Musics of the Night extra spins: You will also be awarded 10 extra spins here with additional boosts. The boosts can range from additional extra spins, 4x win multipliers to stacked reels of Wilds
