Throughout the history of literature, Romeo and Juliet are one of the most famous plays ever written. This play by William Shakespeare involves the tragedy of two lovers from rival backgrounds. It has countless film and stage adaptations. This article mainly focuses on a pair of video slots based on this immortal piece of work. Although their developers are new in this casino industry, yet they are superbly talented.
These slots were introduced by blueprint gaming and the theme looks incredible. With the reels set in the balcony of the room where Juliet lives, the developers did an amazing job. The wild symbol is the pair of lovers and it also fetches the highest line in terms of pay-outs. The game also uses various other symbols, like the coat of arms, heart, dove and rose. The usual playing card icons are low paying symbols. A special feature known as lover’s special spin can randomly be triggered at any point of time during any spin. Even a modifier can be won through the process of selecting a heart. These features offer additional pay-out possibilities.
Guaranteed wins can also be obtained with the activation of lover’s win spin which adds high paying symbols. The bottle of poison which Romeo used to commit suicide is also a bonus symbol. There are three bonus rounds available one of which can be activated using this bonus symbol. One of the bonus rounds is Juliet’s wheel of fortune which can be used to win multipliers by just spinning the wheel.
Next comes the Romeo’s mystery win bonus where the contestant has to pick from three shields, in which upon revealing Juliet a cash prize can be won. Lastly come to the Star Crossed Lovers where each contestant receives an award of five free spins for the dual reel sets. Another video slot came up with the theme of Romeo and Julia. The change in the name of the female protagonist may not be appreciated by the fans, but all the complaints end with this only. Romeo and Julia are the highest playing symbols. Well-known icons from the story serve as other icons of the game. Some of the symbols are the red ribbon, Romeo’s dagger which is used by Juliet to commit suicide and the sealed letter to Romeo by Friar. Beautifully designed normal card icons are used as low paying symbols. The wild symbol has been considered as the game logo. Various winning combinations are also available which ensure a guaranteed payoff.
