Lady of Hope Slots Game
This High 5 Games designed slot is based upon the story of Lady Godiva, who rode through the streets of Coventry naked so that her tyrant husband would reduce the amount of tax the poor tenants of the city would have to pay.
This slot features Lady Godiva on the reels, although it has to be said she has more than a passing resemblance to Lady Gaga – the symbol a close up of her face, which reveals her in all her glory astride a horse when forming part of a win. Other characters on the reels include her very unpopular husband and male and female tenants of the city.
Lady Hope Slot Gameplay
Lady Hope has two striking aspects that set it apart from the majority of other slots found online.
Firstly you have the ‘tumbling reels’ feature, where you’ll notice immediately that the symbols fall into place, instead of appearing on reels. Every time you land a win, the winning symbols will now disappear and be replaced by the symbols from above falling into their place and new symbols appearing at the top of the reels. The reels will now be re-evaluated to see if any additional wins have been gained and if so, these winning symbols will now disappear. This will continue as long as the wins keep coming, the beauty of this system being that you’ll only pay for the initial spin.
Secondly, you’ll find that the game enjoys the all-ways system of winning. This means that you’ll win when symbols appear on three or more consecutive reels from left to right, irrespective of the position on the reels. In combination with the tumbling reels, this promises a slot where the wins will come thick and fast.
Lady Hope is the highest paying symbol, worth 500 coins for the maximum five in a row, while her husband will only pay out 300 coins. The two tenants of the city pay 150 coins for the maximum 5, while you’ll also find the playing cards Q, K and A on the reels. These wins are aided by the wild symbol which appears on reels 2, 3 and 4, which substitutes for any other symbol apart from the scatter.
The all-ways system in place ensures that you’ll have 243 ways to win at each spin, although you’ll only actually pay 40 credits per spin. The cost per credit ranges from just 1c, all the way through to $10, ensuring that the slot is suitable for all players, irrespective of the size of your bankroll.
The slot has an attractive, medieval backdrop, with cobbled streets winding through the stone buildings, while the symbols have a patterned blue background. The four character symbols are all well designed – Lady Godiva the standout symbol, while her husband looks particularly mean. The female tenant offers Lady Godiva a rose, while the male tenant looks particularly happy – either because his rent has been reduced or the fact that a naked lady has just ridden past on a horse!
You can watch the action unfold by hitting spin each time, while the auto play option allows you to play 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 spins without interruption. One nice added extra found at all of the High 5 range is the instant replay button, where you can enjoy that big win again and again.
Lady Hope Slot Bonus Feature
The scatter symbol at Lady Hope is a gold and brown emblem which appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. If you land the scatter symbol on all three reels, whether immediately or because of the tumbling reels, you’ll find yourself entering the feature with 10 free spins. During the bonus feature you’ll find yourself playing on different, slightly more profitable reels and have the ability of landing extra spins by hitting an additional 3 scatters and gaining an extra 5 spins (this seems to happen a lot more than you usually find at other slots). The free spins are only limited when it comes to 60 spins.
Lady Hope Slot Conclusion
Tumbling reels and the all-ways system of winning are not original in themselves, but it’s certainly unusual to find both of them in action at the same slot. This makes for a game that is all action, where the wins can just keep coming and coming. The only small criticism is the fact that the feature is almost exactly the same as the base game, although the fact that the spins are retriggered so easily more than makes up for this. Lady Hope will certainly appeal to those who enjoy lower variance games, where you’ll never have to wait too long for a win.
