Under license from Netent, Universal Monsters the Phantom’s Curse focuses on the tragic-love story of the Phantom of the Opera using re-spins, free spins and the pick & click bonus feature for a chance at up to R2,000 on a pay-line.
Tragic Love Story
Universal Monsters the Phantom’s Curse is designed with the purpose of reinforcing the theme of a tragic love story. The transparent 5-reels and 40 fixed paylines slot sits atop a cold and empty opera house with the eerie mist foreshadowing an ominous event about to take place.
Included amongst the main symbols are the Phantom, Christine, a red ring, a yellow rose, a hand mirror and dagger with four lower-paying symbols represented by poker suit icons. The orchestral-style music that plays in the background is the second reason for the successful atmosphere of the game.
Phantom Mask Wild
The phantom mask wild has the ability to replace any other symbol other than scatter and the bonus symbols.
Pick and Click Bonus
During the main game, both the 1st and the 5th reels can contain stacked bonus symbols consisting of either the Phantom on the 1st reel, and the stacked mask or stacked Christine on the 5th reel.
The pick and click bonus game is unlocked when the stacked phantom lands on the 1st reel and stacked Christine on the 5th reel. In this event, the bonus game has 2 stages, the first of which you are presented with 8 roses of which you are invited to pick roses revealing coin wins or a blocker symbol which advances you to the 2nd stage.
In this next stage, you are presented with 1 to 3 mirrors and invited to choose one to reveal a 1x to 3x multiplier. You can win up to 7,200 coins.
Masked Phantom Re-spin
The Masked Phantom re-spin is unlocked when the stacked Phantom lands on the 1st reel and stacked mask on the 5th reel. In this feature, the mask and Phantom symbols become sticky wilds for one free re-spin.
Universal Monsters the Phantom’s Curse Free spins
The Free spins feature is unlocked with 3 scatter symbols that may appear on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels. This feature is characterised by adjacent ropes connected to a reel. Each masked Phantom digs into the rope and when all five reels are cut, the chandelier falls bringing the free spins to its crashing conclusion. For the duration of the feature, the masked Phantom symbol acts as a wild.
