Esmeralda Video Slot Review
Esmeralda video slot is a 5 reel, 25 payline game from Playtech which boasts plenty of wilds, stacked scatters and generous free spins as well as a progressive jackpot.
The overall atmosphere is dark fairytale romance – just like the Hunchback of Notre Dame story the slot is based upon. Reel icons include jewellery, red roses and musical instruments, befitting the time period and cinematic versions of the original tale. The slot is easy to navigate, smooth to play and generally pleasant – though some players prefer to turn off the sound effects as they can be distracting.
Esmeralda Video Slot Progressive jackpot
The progressive jackpot is stake dependent and it is only activated once you have opted for maximum bet spins. These bets cost 2.00, 5.00, 10.00 or 25.00 per spin. To win the progressive jackpot, you need to hit five Esmeralda symbols – the amount you win is the amount that corresponds with your chosen max bet. If you hit the five symbols and are not betting max, you will win a consolation prize of 15,000 coins – but this is significantly lower than the progressive amount.
Esmeralda Video Slot Features
The wild symbol is also the Esmeralda jackpot symbol – this will complete any winning combination by substituting other symbols (not including the scatter). In addition, hit five of the male portrait symbols on any activated payline and you will receive a payout of 1000 coins.
The red rose scatter symbols are stacked on the reels so you could get several in one game. A minimum of eight scatters across the reels will set your free spins in motion, starting from 15 free spins for eight roses, up to a massive 70 spins for 15 roses. Extra spins can also be re-triggered during your free spins rounds.
Double or Nothing
When you hit a winning combination you can choose to ‘Double’ with this special gamble feature; simply predict the outcome of a single card and if you’re right, you’ll win extra cash! However, get it wrong and you lose the winnings that activated the gamble option.
