The Phantom of the Opera Slots

Get ready for a thrilling musical show, this time unfolding on the reels. The artistic slot machine is brought to you by the ingenious gaming software developer NetEnt in July, 2017. Based on the Gaston Leroux's novel and the Universal Studio silent movie of the same name, the title is abundant in special features like stacked Wilds, Free Spins, Pick and Click Bonus Rounds, Re-Spins, and Multipliers as well. The romanticized gaming adventure features 5 reels and 40 lucrative paylines and offers the maximum payout of 160,000 coins. So dress up, show up and spin the reels to see if you can turn this sorrowful love story into a high-paying adventure.

How to Play

In terms of visuals, the 2017 NetEnt release boasts magnificent graphic props, but we wouldn't expect anything less from the super creative gaming company. A beautiful theater interior, the one you will most probably encounter on Broadway itself, serves as the backdrop to the reels, while the sublime, rather dramatic opera tune sets the romantic, but also macabre and mystifying atmosphere. As far as the gameplay goes, the highest wins are centered around the Free Spins feature with stacked Wilds coming into play thus further boosting your winning potential. However, if truth be told, you can expect smaller but more regular wins for the most part unless you are a highly fortunate punter. The Phantom of the Opera falls into the medium variance category and features the RTP of 96.57%. Last but not least, we like the fact that the slot pays both ways, from left to right and right to left.

Betting Options and Payout

The musical-inspired slot boasts a non-progressive, but fairly rewarding jackpot worth 800x your stake. The game is playable from as low as $0.20, while the maximum possible wager can go up to incredible $200 per spin. The most lucrative symbol is the masked Phantom himself replacing all other icons apart from Scatters. On the other hand, another symbol to watch for is Scatter represented as the chandelier. Landing 3 Scatter symbols will trigger the Free Spins feature that can pay more than lucrative cash prizes.

Symbols and Extra Features

The reels are home to the various card suits like diamonds, hearts, spades and clubs but also hand mirrors, daggers, sapphire rings, masks and yellow roses. Additionally, Christine, the famous heroine from the musical, is also featured on the reels and falls into the high-paying category. The Phantom himself acts as the slot's Wild, providing you with a 10x your stake win if you happen to land 5 of them on a single payline. Scatter is represented as an extravagant chandelier, paramount to triggering the Phantom Free Spins feature. In order to start the feature, you are required to land 3 Scatters on the reel 1, 2 and 5 at the same time. Interestingly enough, the chandelier is hanging by five ropes and, if the Phantom character lands during free games, he will cut them. When all five ropes are severed, the chandelier will consequently fall to the ground and the Free Spins feature will come to the end. Also, if the Phantom symbol lands on a reel cutting the rope section, all the Phantoms from that reel will become stacked and remain so for the duration of the feature. On the other hand, the Pick and Click feature is activated once stacked Phantom Wilds cover the entire reel 1 and Christine also pops in stacked on the reel 5 at the same time. In the stage 1 of the mini-game, you need to choose between 8 rose symbols, each hiding a different cash prize. The second stage requires that you decide on 1 among the 3 mirrors that come equipped with different multipliers. The highest amount you can potentially grab in this round is 36x your stake.

Our Verdict

Overall, the amazing slot looks and pays extremely well and, given the wide betting range, it caters to the needs of both high-rollers and those with smaller bankrolls, too. On top of that, the superb title features astonishing 3D graphic material, a fascinating soundtrack and, even more importantly, very authentic and rewarding bonus features that will keep you coming back for more, beyond any doubt.
