Romeo is the ideal slot for some starry-eyed wins, with ten paylines on a 3x3 reel set offering hearts, flowers, chocolates and champagne.
The 3x3 purple-coloured reels are framed with climbing red roses and a plush red curtain, sitting on a balcony overlooking a hazy Venice vista at dusk.
The slot's paytable demonstrates a low variance game where numerous wins are expected. Prize payouts from the five standard icons range from x3 to x20 a line bet. A player can achieve better successes from three scatter symbols or three wilds at x50 their line bet and, of course, the wild icons will replace to help increase winning lines.
Lucky players who land a large ruby heart wild icons on the central reel will be bestowed an x7 multiplier of any win it completes. Landing a heart with two rose wilds on any payline and players could see wins of x350 a line bet.
Even if a player does not manage to score the top prize, the slot's bonus rounds and a gamble round should help boost up a real cash prize pool.
Bonus features of Romeo
Landing three rose wilds on a payline, and you'll be awarded ten spins where all wins pay from both directions on the paylines. These are not free spins - players will still pay a bet for each one but, the gains are all doubled.
There is a free spins feature that is activated by landing three or more game's logo scatter icons. It provides a player ten free spins, that can be re-activated with a further three or more scatter symbols.
Plus, for an extra boost to winnings, there is a great gamble bonus round. Players select a playing card from the deck, where the free Romeo video slot invites players to test their luck on the selection of jewellery that would be most suitable for a date.
Three red jewellery boxes sit on the screen. Two are open, and one reveals a large, gorgeous sapphire pendant, and the other contains two diamond earrings. The third box is closed; players can gamble all or half of their winnings to correctly guess the item that matches the contents of the closed box.
Selecting jewellery for someone can be an intensely stressful decision, that adds to the thrill of the risk in this gambling game. Get it correct, and players could be lucky in romance plus their wallet. Guess it incorrectly, though, and players will leave empty-handed.
Romeo video slot undoubtedly doesn't have the lure of immersive play or the thrill of an extensive paytable. This romance story is a far more fuzzy affair that will suit novice or recreational gamblers and players searching for a light-hearted game in a quick coffee break.
The low variance on this romance-themed slot means that wins, even from the bonus round, are not that likely to dramatically alter a player's winnings. There is plenty of soft-focused entertainment, though, and a player's real cash prizes should unquestionably cover a couple of romantic candles with insense for a night in.
