Christmas is over and the next big event on the calendar is Valentine’s Day. It will come as no surprise then to find that a love themed slot is expected to launch from Microgaming over the next couple of weeks, a slot called Secret Romance.
It’s not to be confused with Immortal Romance, a really popular slot from the same game developer.
Although we’ve not yet been able to trial the game, we’ve watched a trailer of what it is going to bring to the casino table and so far, we like what we see.
That said, the playability of new slots can only really be judged by spinning the reels and we have to wait a while to be able to do that.
The game will have five reels and 15 paylines and be available on your mobile, tablet or desktop. As the name suggests, it’s a loved themed game and boasts roses, perfume, jewellery and masquerade masks on the reels. These complement the usual card deck of 10, J, Q, K and A.
The colour scheme for the slot is quite dark with the main hue being purple.
There are a number of special features on the Secret Romance slot and these are:
These are red envelopes that appear on the reels and they are opened to reveal a random symbol. The only symbol that will not appear from the envelope is the wild.
These can be stacked in the base game and could reveal a screen full of diamond ring scatters if you are lucky!
Landing three Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger 14 free spins with a standard 2x multiplier.
Whilst in the free spin mode, the Mystery symbols can be stacked as many as 20 high that increases your winning potential massively. Also in free spin mode, they can reveal a wild symbol.
If you achieve three of more scatters in the free spin mode, your multiplier will increase by one to a maximum of 5x.
In comparison with many of the new games we are seeing released from the likes of NetEnt and Quickspin, this new title from Microgaming seems quite dull.
That said, the winning potential looks good and we’ll reserve full judgement until the game is actually launched later this month or the start of next.
It will be available at online casinos like 32Red and other brands that have the Microgaming titles in their portfolio.
