- The brand new slot launches today
- The game is based on the classic Andrew Lloyd Webber musical
Hideously disfigured man spies cute opera singer. Man watches her rehearse and falls hopelessly in love. Phantom tries to prevent his newfound love from running off with slimy arts benefactor. That, in a nutshell, is the plot to The Phantom of the Opera, an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical that’s entranced theatre-goers the world over and spawned a movie starring Gerard Butler.
It’s now also responsible for spawning a stunning looking new online slot courtesy of Microgaming, and it’s one that’s just made its debut.
Stellar score, stellar gameplay
While credit for the heart-rending tale goes to French writer Gaston Leroux, who published his story as a serialisation starting in 1909, it’s the musical version that Microgaming have emulated.
As a consequence, The Phantom of the Opera slot comes with a stellar score that will lift you up and leave you suitably roused, stirred and every other superlative you may care to apply – that’s if you’re playing the game with the audio on of course, which is certainly recommended.
Having grossed over $154 million globally and become the third-longest-running West End show with over 12,000 performances, The Phantom of the Opera is kind of a big deal.
When it came to tackling the video slot conversion of the musical, Microgaming had a lot of expectations to live up to, but early indications are that they’ve thoroughly nailed it with their 243-ways game, which is blessed with a slew of stunning features.
Set on a 5×3 board, the game features all of the iconic characters who appear as symbols in the stage version of the timeless tale including the Phantom, Christine and Raoul.
The Letter Bonus is just one of many bonus features to tie in with the theme of the game, this one representing the missives that the Phantom sends to the theatre’s owners.
When this lands on reel five, you’ll be awarded a random cash prize. Then there’s The Chandelier Bonus which represents the pivotal scene in which an anguished Phantom sends the grand chandelier tumbling to the floor. When this kicks in, two or three reels will turn wild.
Land three or more scatter symbols on the board to be awarded the Choose For Me bonus, in which a random feature will be awarded. This will comprise either The Masquerade, Music of the Night or All I Ask of You. Each feature comes with its own bonuses and musical score, with Music of the Night awarding 10 free spins and dancing wilds.
Inspired by the 2004 movie version of The Phantom of the Opera, which in turn was based on the Andrew Lloyd Webber version of The Phantom of the Opera, Microgaming’s epic new slot is available at online casinos from today. Find it at Microgaming-powered casinos such as Casumo Casino, bet365 Casino. 32Red Casino and more – give it a spin and prepare to be entranced.
