First Footage: NetEnt’s new Phantom of the Opera Slot
Published on by Adam
Step into the awe-inspiring Palais Garnier and come face-to-gruesome-face with the much-feared Phantom of the Opera with NetEnt’s forthcoming slot release. We’re just gotten our hands on some preview footage of this game and can’t wait to share it with you.
Terror at the theatre
Whether you’re a fan of the original 1910 novel by Gaston Leroux, the hit West End musical by Andrew Lloyd Weber or any one of the story’s adaptations on film, Phantom of the Opera is one of those stories that captures hearts in any of its formats.
This slot is part of the Universal Monsters ™ series, which covers the scary creatures introduced in Universal films between 1920 and the 50s. The Phantom of the Opera was released as a silent film in 1925.
NetEnt’s treatment of the tale has been created with a similar grandeur and mystery. The intro to the game presents the protagonist, lurking high above a Parisian street, humming with excitement before the performance begins. As the game progresses, we’ll see more of these short cinematic interludes, which serve to give the story and the characters further depth.
As this story is all about a mysterious presence at a grand theatre, it comes as no surprise that the game’s graphics are similarly opulent. On the reels, you’ll note roses, heart-shaped mirrors, the faces of the Phantom himself and the young ingénue Christine Daaé. The notorious chandelier appears too, as does the Phantom’s gold ring and his steely dagger.
This slot is not short on game features. Three special Bonus symbols act as Wilds while others are Scatters and Wild Substitutions. Players can also claim Free Spins and a Sticky Wild re-spin – represented by the Phantom himself – feature add to the sense of excitement. You can also pick your own win, thanks to the Pick and Click Bonus game.
