Famous for their innovative design, NetEnt marked the beginning of 2018 with their Universal Monsters: The Phantom’s Curse. As you would suggest, the slot comes with a theme based on the everlasting horror story of Phantom of the Opera. This slot is a part of series of slots involving famous monsters from movies and literature. If you are a real fan of horror stories and like these kinds of slots (the ones that bring the chill down your spine) then you should also try out NetEnt’s Dracula.
Anyway, apart from spooky theme this slot comes with a bunch of other surprises. The slot is packed with 3 bonus features, a variety of different stacked symbols and wilds. The maximum award you can gain is 800x your stake. The main feature of the game is probably the Free Spins feature, as you never know what number of free games you’ll get. Well, what’s a dark story without a little of suspense?
The Phantom’s Curse Slot Game Play and Bonus Features
The slot comes with 5 reels and 40 fixed pay lines to play. As for the bet settings, you can adjust the coin value and choose a bet level between 1 and 10. This means that the minimum bet you can play with is 20p and for those feeling brave enough, the maximum bet is £200. Either way, there are bet options for everyone’s taste.
The entrancing symbols on the reels include a variety of icons related to the theme. You will find daggers, mirrors, masks, yellow roses, the Phantom and his beloved Christine. This set of symbols carry the high payout value, while card symbols are with the lower value. There are several wild stacked symbols that play the important role in forming combinations and unlocking special features. So, let’s get through those features we’re all interested in.
Pick and Click Bonus. The combination of stacked Phantom and stacked Christine unlocks this feature. The former needs to land on reel 1 while at the same time Christine has to land on reel 5. The feature has 2 parts: choosing roses to reveal cash prize and choosing between 3 mirrors to reveal the multiplier.
Free Spins Feature. 3 scatters (the chandelier) landing on reels 1, 3, and 5 trigger the feature. This one is the interesting one as you don’t get the exact number of free spins. Since the chandelier is connected to all five reels with 5 ropes, your free spins depend on the Masked Phantom symbol which also acts as a wild. Whenever you land this symbol on the reels, he will cut the rope connected to that reel and remain stacked on that reel. As long as the chandelier is hanging, the free games are on.
Masked Phantom Re-spin. The feature is again triggered by the combination of symbols; in this case the stacked Phantom on reel 1 and stacked Mask on reel 5. You get 1 free re-spin with those two symbols becoming sticky wilds.
