Enjoy a gala performance at the Imperial Opera, a beautifully designed Asian-themed video slot from Play ’N Go. It’s a 5 reel, 20 payline game that comes with extra long symbol stacks, wild reels, synced reels and a free spins round where giant 3×3 symbols dominate the action. Play this high variance game on your tablet, mobile or computer from between 20p and £100 per spin.
There’s a classical design to the feel here as the reels are set against a concert hall backdrop. Red, green and gold dominate the screen. Joining the usual lower value playing cards are 3 characters from a traditional Chinese opera. There’s also the Princess who is the game’s wild – as well as substituting for everything bar the scatter the wild offers awards of 25 times your bet if you land 5 on a payline.
Play ’N Go has created a lovely looking video slot here – they’ve also not skimped on the features either:
- Showcase feature – 1of the standard symbols is selected at random on every spin (in both the base game or the free spins). This symbol appears in extra-long stacks on that spin. A new symbol is chosen with each spin.
- Crescendo feature – triggering at random in the base game, only 1 or better still 2 reels will turn totally wild for the spin that follows.
- Harmony feature – 2 or 3 reels will synchronise and display the same matching symbols. The Harmony feature hits at random in the base game only.
- Free Spins feature – if the Harmony feature syncs 3 reels, you could see giant 3×3 free spin scatters spinning around the reels. If 1 of these lands in its full 3×3 formation, you’ll trigger the bonus round and with it 10 free spins. Reels 2, 3 and 4 will sync throughout the free spins to show matching colossal symbols. Land the full 3×3 scatter and another 10 free spins are added to your tally – with no limits.
The setting here might be sublime but don’t be fooled into thinking that Imperial Opera is a gentle game. It’s anything but. The action here is extremely volatile so you can expect some mighty swings to your bankroll and some potentially lengthy winless spells. Get on a roll with the free spins round though and the coins can flow very quickly.
Play ’N Go has created an entertaining game here. It’s very easy on the eye and ear and packs a very high variance punch. Get lucky with those volatile features and a visit to the Imperial Opera could be one you won’t forget. If you like the opera, Microgaming’s The Phantom of the Opera and NetEnt’s The Phantom’s Curse are good options.
