NetEnt have done it again, producing a quality slot with some exciting new gameplay, this time based on the Phantom of the Opera. Microgaming may have produced a Phantom of the Opera slot lately, so if that rings a bell you know why, but this one takes a different approach. This slot uses the Universal Monsters license, which is the new combined cinematic universe of classic movies like the Mummy and Jekyll and Hyde. NetEnt also recently produced the Dracula slot in the same Universal Monsters series.
The Phantom Curse is a 5-reel slot, boosted with 4 rows instead of the standard 3. The paylines are fixed at 40 and symbols range from the classic card suites to daggers, roses and of course the Phantom and Christine themselves. There are a series of symbols like the masked Phantom and mask, some stacked, that pay the same, for various win combinations.
There are free spins to find too, from getting three scatters. This is represented by the iconic chandelier and shows the Phantom tensely cutting its ropes. There are ropes for each reel, which are cut until all are gone and the round ends.
The main bonus round is a pick and win where you seek the correct roses and mirrors, leading to potentially big wins. The overall feel of the slot is all about capturing the love of the Phantom for the beautiful Christine, with an operatic, romantic score.
This spellbinding game has a theatre background, drawn in very high quality, plus animated symbols on the reels. You can find Universal Monsters: The Phantom Curse on many online casinos, more or less any that have NetEnt games. Check it out on Casumo or Mr Green for example.
