The Phantom’s Curse
The Phantom’s Curse has a number of game features. Get three or more scatters on the reels and activate a free spins round. The number of free spins is determined by The Phantom. Five of them during the spins will see the chandaliers come crashing down and the bonus round ended.
The game has a number of different wild symbols including Mask, Stacked Mask, Masked Phantom, Stacked Phantom and Stacked Christine. The Stacked Phantom only appears on the first reel whilst Stacked Mask and Stacked Christine appear on reel 5. Stacked bonus symbols are in play during free spins. A respin is awarded when the Stacked Phantom and Stacked Mask appear on the reels.
The Pick and Click bonus round appears when the Stacked Phantom and Stacked Christine symbols appear on their respective reels. The bonus round comprises two stages: during stage one there are eight yellow roses to choose from – some roses reveal cash prizes, whilst others reveal blockers. If a blocker is revealed then stage two starts. At this stage three mirrors are presented – each represents a multiplier of x1, x2 or x3. The coins won in stage 1 are then multiplied by the amount in stage 2 to reveal the win.
Net Entertainment have taken a dramatic story and turned it into a dramatic slot game. The graphics are good as is the accompanying soundtrack. The bonus rounds and multiple features including the left to right and right to left win lines help elevate interest in the slot.
