Eerie yet Elegant Haunted Opera Video Slot
The Phantom of the Opera is here… inside this 20-line, five-reel online video slot inspired by Andrew Lloyd Webber’s legendary musical about a haunted opera house.
In keeping with this theme, Haunted Opera features leading lady Christine, the Phantom’s white mask, a letter, a mirror, a red rose, the Phantom himself, as well as several other spooky symbols. The five Haunted Opera reels are set in a gilded frame, resting atop an opera stage, flanked by plush red curtains. Of course, dangling above it all, is the famous crystal chandelier that famously plummets to the ground as the Haunted Opera collapses near the end of the musical.
The soundtrack is simple and features mostly haunting organ melodies with a few harp notes thrown in to add a sense of something magical to the Haunted Opera slot.
A Broad Range of Betting Options
In addition to its obvious appeal to fans of the Broadway musical, Haunted Opera should also attract players with a range of betting preferences. Coin values range from just 0.01 credits all the way up to 5.00 credits per line. Since the paylines in Haunted Opera are adjustable, this means the players can wager anything between 0.01 and 100.00 credits per spin, depending on how lucky they are feeling.
In the offing is a 500 coin fixed jackpot – which is multiplied during bonus rounds or when a wild symbol is involved – as well as a progressive jackpot, which has been known to grow to considerable amounts in the Haunted Opera slot.
The Phantom of the Opera is Wild
Haunted Opera players will be keen to land the Phantom’s mask as this is the game’s wild symbol. As such, the mask can stand in for any other Haunted Opera symbol – with the exception of scatters – to help complete winning payline combinations.
Additionally, during standard play, the Haunted Opera wild comes with a 2x multiplier on all the wins it helps create and this becomes a 6x multiplier during bonus rounds.
A Note on the Scatter Symbol
The letter is another sought-after symbol in Haunted Opera because it is the game’s scatter symbol. This means that it pays out for as little as two of a kind and regardless of where it appears on the reels.
What’s more, scatter symbols pay out 1x, 3x, 10x, or even 100x the total bet, depending on how many are landed.
But the Haunted Opera scatter symbol’s greatest attribute is that it unlocks the free spins round…
The Curtain Raises on Free Spins
The biggest Haunted Opera wins become accessible to players who are fortunate enough to land the letter scatter on Reel 1 at the same time as landing the mask wild on Reel 5. When this happens, Haunted Opera players are awarded five free spins with a 3x multiplier.
Additionally, if the Phantom symbol appears during these free spins, up to three more free spins are awarded. However, the free spins feature itself cannot be retriggered in the Haunted Opera slot.
The Haunted Opera Progressive Jackpot
The other prize up for grabs on the Haunted Opera slot is its progressive jackpot, which continues to grow each time the game is played and lost by any player on the RTG progressive jackpot network. At last count, this jackpot, which is triggered at random, stood at nearly US$ 40 000.
