The NetEnt Phantom Slot Goes Live

January 25, 2018

The new NetEnt branded slot has gone live at online casinos like 777 Dragon and Golden Riviera. It is titled Universal Monsters: The Phantom’s Curse and is based on a 1925 silent horror movie inspired by The Phantom of the Opera.

The online slot has 40 paylines set in a 5x4 structure, with winning combinations occurring from both left to right and right to left. The background to the reels is the grand opera house. All symbols appear stacked on the reels. The high paying symbols are the Phantom and Christine. These are followed by iconic items from the plot such as ring, rose, mirror and dagger. The low paying symbols are the playing card suits. The mask is the wild symbol and it awards the highest line payouts.

There are three different bonus symbols that appear with a golden frame. They are Stacked Mask, Masked Phantom, Stacked Phantom and Stacked Christine and they act as wild symbols. The Stacked Phantom appears only on the first reel, while the other two appear only on the last reel. The Pick and Click feature is triggered when the Stacked Phantom lands fully on reel 1 and Stacked Christine lands fully on reel 5. In Stage 1 you keep picking roses and winning bonuses till you reveal a blocker. In Stage 2 to you pick a mirror and win a multiplier up to 3x for the total bonus won in Stage 1.

The Masked Phantom Re-Spin feature is triggered when the Stacked Phantom lands fully on reel 1 and Stacked Mask lands fully on reel 5. All stacked bonus symbols and the wild symbol remain on the reels and you get one respin.

Three scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 trigger the free spins feature. A chandelier appears on the screen, connected to each reel by different ropes. When a Masked Phantom appears on a reel the rope connecting the chandelier to that reel is cut. The free spins continue until all the ropes are cut and the chandelier crashes down as in the opera. The Masked Phantom landing on a reel also becomes a stacked wild and remains fixed till the end of the feature.

The top line payout is 200 coins per coin wagered. This does seem low, but because there are so many wild symbols the winning combinations keep coming. The maximum bet per spin is $200, which will bring in the high rollers.
