Michelangelo Slots Game
Michelangelo was a man of many talents, which includes painting, architecture and poetry but he was most famous perhaps for his sculptures. His two most famous works in Pieta and David were both created before the famed Italian artist was younger than thirty, while his sculpture of Moses is perhaps the most eye catching of all.
Both David and Moses appear on the reels of this High 5 Games designed slot, alongside a forlorn looking female figure. During play you’ll enjoy the tumbling reels aspect of the slot, where you can gain win after win for the cost of just one spin, while free spins can come your way quickly and easily.
Michelangelo Slot Gameplay
Michelangelo is a slot that features ‘tumbling reels’. Instead of the reels spinning, you’ll find that each of the symbols will fall onto the reels. Every time a win is achieved, the winning symbols will now disappear and the symbols from above will fall into their place, while new symbols will appear to fill the empty spots at the top of each reel. The reels will now be re-evaluated and any new wins will also pay out and these winning symbols will once again disappear – this process repeating until the tumbling reels reveal no more additional wins.
With the sculptures of Michelangelo on the reels, there was never any doubt that these symbols would look impressive on the reels. Unfortunately, the color scheme of the slot doesn’t complement these symbols well – a black background and colorful letters not really fitting with the theme at all, where a more classic, perhaps stone, background would surely be ideal. The accompanying sound is a little too jaunty too, where something softer or a classical score would be more suitable. In some ways it seems that the developers have simply added the three sculptures onto another slot, which is all a little disappointing and I don’t think Michelangelo himself would be too impressed with the design.
Fortunately however, the wins will still come along thick and fast due to the tumbling reels. The highest paying symbol on the reels is the letter ‘M’ of the title, which pays a very impressive 5,000 coins when hitting the maximum 5 in a row. David is next on the pay table at 1,000 coins, while Moses and the female sculpture pay 400 and 300 coins respectively. These standard symbols are completed by the playing card letters A, K and Q. These wins are aided by the wild symbol which appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only and will substitute for any other apart from the scatter.
Alongside the tumbling reels, the other unusual aspect of the slot is the large number of pay lines. The game has a total of 99, which is certainly on the high side for a slot with a 5×3 reel configuration. This makes for a slot which will cost 99 credits a spin if playing for the maximum amount of lines, although you can opt to play just 50, 25, 10 or even just a single pay line. The minimum stake for each of the credits is just 1c and goes all the way through to $10.
You’ll find an auto play option if hitting spin over and over is not your idea of fun, which you can use to set the slot to run for 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 spins without interruption, while the ‘replay’ option is a good one if you want to enjoy that super payout over and over again.
Michelangelo Slot Feature
The one symbol not mentioned so far is the ‘free games’ one. This symbol only appears on reels 1, 2 and 3 and if you can hit three in a row on one of the pay lines you’ll gain these free spins. The number of free spins is relatively low, as you’ll gain a random number between 1 and 4, although with the tumbling reels, both activating the feature and landing wins during the feature is easier than usual. During these free spins the bonus symbol is replaced by a new wild symbol, making each and every spin even more profitable.
Michelangelo Slot Conclusion
Your first impression of this High 5 Games offering might not be a particularly good one, the visuals and the sound somewhat lacking. However, the gameplay side of the slot is enjoyable. The tumbling reels format certainly gives each spin more excitement than usual and the large number of pay lines ensures that there will be a lot of this tumbling! The wild filled free spins offer the opportunity for some very large payouts too, which does offset the low number of free spins somewhat. Overall, Michelangelo is a good slot, which could have been so much better.
