Hearts of Venice Slot Machine
Is there a more romantic place on earth than Venice? Take a Gondola ride with the one you love or take a stroll, walking across the narrow bridges and admiring the historical, beautiful city. This slot by WMS captures the romantic side of Venice, the symbols on the reels including the Gondolas, a couple framed against the moonlight, roses and large red hearts. These hearts play a major role in the slot, being those that activate the ‘hot hot super respin’ which is the major feature of the game. You’ll also find a free games feature here as well.
This slot is slightly unusual in the fact that the five reels each show four symbols as opposed to the three found at the majority of slots. The slot features a gentle accompanying soundtrack, this being just right for a slot with this theme as it sets the mood perfectly. However, should you grab a big win, the sound explodes into life.
Playing the Hearts of Venice Slot
This 5 reel slot has fifty win lines, but you’ll also pay a little extra for the bonus feature. You’ll choose the total stake for each spin by clicking on one of the boxes in the controls section, each showing the amount. Hovering the mouse over any of these boxes shows you exactly how the amount is made up. For example, an 80c spin consists of 50 lines at 0.02x per 2 lines, plus 30x for the feature bet. The other boxes in this section are those for the pay table and the auto play, which automatically is set to 200 spins.
All of the symbols at this slot pay out when landing at least three in a row on a win line. There is no stand out symbol which pays vastly more than any other, but the lady holding a rose is the most valuable at 400 coins, closely followed by a selection of symbols including the gondolier, the gondola itself and a bridge at sunset at 300 coins.
The wild at the slot is the ‘Hearts of Venice’ logo, which will substitute for any other symbol apart from either of the feature symbols.
Hearts of Venice Slot Features
The first feature of the slot is for free spins. This is activated by landing the ‘couple at moonlight’ scatter symbol three times or more across any of the reels. This will award you ten free spins.
The main feature of the game however is the ‘Hot Hot Super Respin’. At this slot the heart symbol is stacked in columns of four and every time it appears one or more times at the slot, all of the hearts will turn into the same random symbol. However, should the stacked hearts take up the whole of reel one, the feature is activated. Here the hearts will now remain sticky and you’ll have two respins and any hearts landing in either of these spins will also remain sticky. At the end of the respins, every heart on the reels will now turn into the same random symbol. If you consider that the hearts could at this point take up the majority of all the symbols on show, you’ll realize that this could be highly profitable, especially if you can also land a wild or two.
Hearts of Venice Slot Conclusion
This slot by WMS has a theme which will not be enjoyed by all players, but it’s one that certainly might appeal to the more romantic among us – one of the first slots I’ve come across that might actually be perfect for two players. On the playing side this is certainly a game with some originality, with the main feature of the game being one that could potentially lead to some very big wins. This feature, alongside the free spins, makes this slot one you’ll be happy to return to.
