Venetian Rose Slot from Amaya
Today Venice is a major tourist attraction, famed for its canals and gondolas. Back in the 16th century, Venice was the center of the civilized world – with trade links and culture the envy of all. This online slot game from Amaya takes you back to the heyday of Venice. It is a 5 reel video slot with the usual array of features including wild symbols, scatters and a free spins bonus game where all your wins are tripled.
How to Win on Venetian Rose
Symbols on this 25 reel game are colorful and detailed – you’ll need a minimum of two from the left (3 for most symbols) on one of those win lines to trigger a prize. The best paying symbol is the Venetian rose herself, a portrait of a woman holding a fan. This is worth 3000 coins for 5 on one of the win lines, 1000 coins for 4, 100 for 3 and 10 for just 2. This is also the wild symbol, which combines with the other regular symbols to create more wins (often several at once). The scatter symbol (mask) is not replaced by the wild.
Other regular symbols include a guy in a very striking long nosed mask. This is worth 750 coins for all 5 and also pays down to 2 of a kind. The gondola is next (500) with the fan and opera glasses worth 250 coins apiece for the full set. There are ornately decorated playing cards making up the rest of the normal wins.
Scatter symbols have two roles. First, these will pay an (often substantial) prize depending on how many land on the reels in total – regardless of whether they line up on a win-line. The top prize for 5 is a very generous 200 times your total bet, with 4 worth 20x that bet, 3 worth 5x and 2 getting you your money back for that particular spin.
The other role of the mask scatters is to trigger the free spins bonus game – this occurs when you hit 3+ anywhere on the reels.
Venetian Rose Free Spins Game
Before the free spins start you will hear some classical music and a pair of ballroom dancers will come across the reels from left to right. Meanwhile the daytime view of Venice turns into a night time view complete with purple starry sky. You then run through 10 free spins, each of which has a 3x multiplier compared to the amount on the pay table. Free spins can be retriggered if you hit 3+ of the masks during play. If you are lucky enough to line up 5 of the wild symbols during this bonus game, the payout will be 22500 coins.
Design and Setup of Venetian Rose
Around the outside of the reels is a detailed view of Venice. A canal is in the foreground, complete with gondolas bobbing up and down. You can see bridges and rooftops beyond these, with some roses in the foreground. The reels are smaller than on many slots, and the background color is white. This contrasts with the pastel colors of the different symbols, many of which are very details in their artwork. The lady with the fan sticks out as the best, though the mask and the guy are also rather striking.
When you win there are animations, these are short and smooth and stay within the symbols themselves. A much more striking animation involves the dancers who move across the screen when you hit the free spins bonus game. Classical music plays while you spin the reels in addition to a fairly standard collection of beeps and whirrs.
You are free to choose how many lines to play before you spin – with 25 being both the maximum and the default number. The smallest coin size is 1c and the biggest is $2, giving you a range of 25c to $50 for each spin. There are also options to play automatically, and to gamble after a win on the flip of a playing card (either red / black or suits).
A pleasant enough slot which will appeal to those who prefer solid and relaxing gaming over the more intense modern slots. With only a single free spins round, this slot will not set the world alight in terms of functionality – it does a good job within its scope though, providing a smooth and nicely designed game and pleasant classical soundtrack.
