What horror does the mask hide?
Phantom of the Opera is a 5 reel game that does not use standard paylines. Instead any 3 or more matching symbols constitute a win. This is equivalent to 243 standard paylines.
The ‘Phantom of the Opera Logo’ symbol is Wild.
There are 5 bonus features when playing Phantom of the Opera. The first bonus feature is triggered randomly at the end of a spin. When this happens a chandelier swings over the reels and can turn up to 3 randomly selected reels into Wild reels.
The second bonus feature is triggered when you receive the ‘Phantom’s Letter’ symbol anywhere on reel 5. When this happens you will receive a random cash prize of up to 20x your bet.
The third, fourth and fifth bonus features are all activated the same way, when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Phantom’s Mask’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be given the choice between the following bonus features:
– Music of the Night free spins – You will be awarded 10 free spins. During the free spins each spin you can receive any of the following bonus features: up to a 4x win multiplier, up to 3 randomly selected Wild reels, up to 5 randomly placed additional Wild symbols or up to 5 additional free spin.
– Masquerade Bonus – You are shown 5 Masks. Pick 3 Masks to reveal either a cash prize, an additional pick, or entry to the next Level. Each Level offers larger cash prizes. On Level 2 you are awarded 2 picks. On Level 3 you are awarded 1 pick. The feature ends when you’ve used all your picks on a Level without revealing the entry to the next Level.
– All I Ask of You free spins – You are awarded 10 free spins. During the free spins the ‘Christine’ and ‘Raoul’ symbols are Wild. Each spin these symbols move to an adjacent position. If the two Wild symbols are on the same position all wins for the spin are multiplied by 3. If the two Wild symbols are horizontally or vertically adjacent to each other both reels are transformed into Wild reels for the spin. If both Wild symbols are on the same reel that Wild symbol is turned into a Wild reel. If the two Wild symbols are diagonally adjacent the square of four symbols are turned into Wild symbols.
