Secret Romance POKIE
Released by Microgaming, Secret Romance is all about love and romantic mood. It has 5 reels and 20 paylines and its well-made symbols represent everything that a man who has fallen in love gives to his beloved: perfumes, flowers and jewelry. The pokie design is not anything fancy but its features such as Mystery Symbols and Multiplier Trail are awesome. You also have the chance of winning $18,000 in base game and much greater during free spins. Overall, you will not be disappointed when it comes to winning opportunities and extra bonus features represented in this engaging pokie.
PLAY Secret Romance FOR FREE
The pokie reviewed here has a 5x3 field and 20 unchangeable paylines. Shades of red and golden colors are predominant in the pokie and this, combined with purple and red roses around the reels, adds to the romantic air. On the reels can be seen low-paying card symbols from tens to aces that glisten as if made of gold. Themed symbols include red roses (x80), perfume bottles (x120), rose hearts (x150), pendants (x200) and carnival masks (x250).
You can play the pokie with the bet set as low as $0.15 per spin. Certainly, you will not win much if betting next to nothing, so to make your stake level higher, click “+” on the user interface and increase a bet to the maximum of $15 per spin. Bets are placed on all the 15 paylines.
Stacked mystery symbol
A red envelope is a mystery symbol that hides any random symbol behind. It always appears in stacks during the base game and free spins and all the envelopes visible on the screen morph into one and the same randomly chosen symbol, thus enhancing the chances to produce a winning combination. In the base game, the mystery envelope can turn into any symbol, exclusive of wilds. But in free spins you can get the entire gaming field covered with wilds as a result of transformation of the mystery symbols.
A heart-shaped ruby works as a wild symbol. It is used to replace all normal icons and the wild also completes its own winning combos. Getting 2 to 5 wilds aligned on an active payline will pay out x10 to x350 ($350 at the maximum bet).
Free spins with a multiplier trail
Whenever you land three scatters, the pokie grants 14 free spins. This bonus feature is very lucrative since you get many ways of winning big money:
1) You have a multiplier trail that activates if three or more scatters appear during free spins. In many other pokies scatters retrigger free spins but in Secret Romance 3+ scatters increase a multiplier trail by one. The maximum multiplier value is x5. You can track your current multiplier on a special tracker shown above the reels.
2) Stacked mystery symbols become super stacked in free spins. This means that mystery symbols produce a much longer chain when spinning within any single reel.
3) In free spins, mystery symbols can turn into wilds, as distinct from the base non-feature mode where they cannot.
The scatter deserves a couple more words as it behaves here in an unusual way. There are 15 symbols on the game grid and all of them can be scatters as a spin outcome. So the paytable contains rewards for 3 to 15 scatters on the reels. They are x1 for three scatters and x1200 for 15. These figures apply to a total spin bet so the max prize is equivalent to $18,000 if you place the top acceptable bet ($15).
