Graphics and Visuals
Experience a fairy tale setting within the Beast’s palace with Belle standing on the left of the game window, cheering you on when a win lands on the reels. The Beast himself will also make his appearance when features are triggered. Although rich and bold in colours, the overall graphics are not too sophisticated but still of good quality. Two stone columns flank the otherwise frameless game window. In line with the fairy tale, the reels are sparkling on teaser spins. A royal serene soundtrack is changing into dramatic orchestral pieces in the bonus features.
The slot has 10 regular pay symbols. At the low end are the card royals 10 to A, followed by tiles of stained glass painted with a gold pendant, a jewelry box, a cottage, and a palace as well as the slot logo. The standard wild symbol is a red rose. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 1.33x to 33.33x the bet. There are few variations of the wild symbol on the game which will come in play during the bonus features. The scatters are as well a tile of stained glass picturing an open book and the word “Bonus”.
The Random Bonus Features
The action on the reels starts off with two random features which are reel modifiers that provide more potential to score a win. The Enchantress can appear on any spin in the base game to award one of three options.
- Nothing – The Enchantress will be blocked by the evil vines from triggering a feature
- Enchantress Mode – A random number of enchanted spins is awarded where each symbol position will be transformed into a separate reel filled with premium symbols only.
- Magic Mirror Mode – a random number of spins are awarded where the beauty will look into her magic mirror to gaze at herself. All mirrors landing on a spin will unveil a common pay symbol.
The Bonus Game Picker
Hitting three or more scatters in one spin will trigger the Bonus Picker. Players can pick one of three options to reveal one of three bonus features with a varying amount of free spins.
- The Charming Prince Bonus – Unlimited free spins featuring a meter with three hearts. Wins are multiplied by x2, x3 x4 based on 3, 4 or 5 scatters triggering the feature. The beauty is added to the reels as an additional wild symbol. The Enchantress can appear on reel three and will either be good and increase the win multiplier or evil and strike one heart out. Three strikes from the evil Enchantress will end the free spins round
- The Beauty Bonus – Three, four or five scatters will award 8, 12 or 20 free spins respectively. The prince is added as an expanding wild symbol on all reels for the duration of the round.
- The Spellbound Beast Bonus – Three, four or five scatters will award 8, 10 or 12 free spins respectively with four levels. The beauty and the beast are added as wild symbols. The beauty can randomly appear with a heart overlay which is added to the meter on the left of the game window. Three hearts will progress the bonus game to the next level, up to level four. After level two, the beast wild changes into a prince wild. At each level, the wild symbols will have an increasing multiplier attached, ranging from x1 on level 1 to x4 on level 4. Further, +2 free spins are added on every level. After reaching the top level, +2 free spins are awarded for each beauty with a heart overlay.
