The Phantom of the Opera is a NetEnt game, one where we’re seeing clear influences from the famous musical, but the focus seems to be on a 1925 silent film that had this name. As you might imagine, the action has been set up so it takes place inside the building of the opera, and you’re seeing it from the stage. The balconies and seats are in front of you, and the reels are in the middle of this image.
On the reels, the symbols that you’re going to play with will include the card suits, designed to look like mirrors, along with images of the phantom, of Christine and of mirrors, daggers, yellow roses and rings. The graphics look good, but I wouldn’t call this one of the great designs that NetEnt is so well known for.
NetEnt is behind this particular pokie, a new release that proves once again that this developer can create a very entertaining game. Their pokies always tend to be among the best in this category, usually relying on very detailed graphics and on non-standard features to make them liked. 300+ casinos are using the pokies and other games that NetEnt has created, and that’s proof of how valued they are.
How To Play It
The game is played with 40 active win lines, but with only 20 being selected for the wagers. You start with a minimum bet of 20 coins, and you can increase this to up to $200 coins, if you choose to increase the level of the bet up to 10. The coin value in a NetEnt pokie typically gets up to $1 or $2, so the maximum bet will be worth at least $200.
The features will be interesting in most NetEnt slot machines, but that’s not going to complicate things too much. As most slots do, this one also asks you mostly to click on Spin and to sit back and relax. At times, there might be additional requirements of you, when you trigger a feature, but the actions that you would have to take are simple.
If you notice a Mask symbol show up on the reels of this pokie, know that you’re looking at a wild, a feature that is capable of substituting for the regular symbols, but not for the Bonus or Scatters. They may form combinations to reward you directly, offering up to 200x.
Certain symbols will appear stacked, and if you get the right ones fully visible you might trigger a bonus game. It’s a Pick and Click feature, which triggers when a Stacked Phantom takes over reel 1, while the 5th reel gets a Stacked Christine.
There are two stages to the feature, where you have to pick from a number of roses at first, and then from mirrors. The prizes will be determined by the choices you make. 7200 coins is the biggest prize you can get here.
If instead of Christine you get the Stacked Mask on reel 5, while the Phantom is on reel 1, then a re-spin will be activated instead.
For the free spins feature, you will need the scatter icon with the Chandelier to be showing on the reels 1, 3 and 5. There is a bonus game here, which starts up and decides what kind of free spins you will get.
The biggest prize is the one that comes via the Pick and Click bonus game, which can apparently pay up to 7,200 coins. That means that you can win $7,200. Regular combos pay up to $2,000.
The Phantom of the Opera is a good game, something that NetEnt always seems to deliver. It’s not their best pokie, but it’s good enough if you enjoy the theme.
