The Phantom of the Opera slot plays across 5 reels and 243 ways to win, and is based on the hit musical by Andrew Lloyd Weber, which in turn became a blockbuster film. The game has taken inspiration from the characters and story of the original musical, incorporating them into its game play alongside a handful of lucrative bonus features.
The bonuses in The Phantom of the Opera include The Letter Bonus, which offers random cash prizes, and the Chandelier Bonus, which turns entire reels wild for extra big wins. Additionally, the slot also boasts a free spins feature, which is triggered as soon as three or more scatter symbols appear on the reels in a single spin.
Lastly, the new Microgaming slot also offers a Masquerade Bonus, which is a ‘pick me’ style bonus feature that allows players to select random symbols to uncover mystery cash prizes, multipliers, and more.
Boasting music and footage from the film adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera, the new slot will also be compatible with both desktop and mobile gaming devices, including smartphones and tablets. Microgaming has also released a preview video of their latest slot, allowing potential players to decide whether or not it’s for them without spending a cent of their own bankrolls.
Commenting on the release of the slot, Microgaming’s David Reynolds noted that The Phantom of the Opera is a ‘mesmeric’ slots game, which combines modern game mechanics with the stunning visuals and music from the legendary musical.
Reynolds revealed that there has been plenty of hype about the slot since Microgaming revealed its plans to release it back in February at ICE. He noted that he is delighted to finally launch the new game with his company’s vast pool of operators, all thanks to the team at Microgaming’s game studio.
According to the Games Publisher, Microgaming worked alongside the Really Useful Group to bring the Phantom of the Opera brand to life in the new slot, and both his company and RUG are excited to see how it is received by players in the coming months.
