Intrigue, beauty, horror and music awaits you in Universal Monsters: The Phantom’s Curse slot from NetEnt. Based on Gaston Leroux’s famous novel, the game is equipped with 5-reels and 40 paylines and has a variety of features including Free Spins, a Masked Phantom Re-Spin with Sticky Wilds plus a thrilling Pick and Click Bonus Game!
Like Dracula that came before it, The Phantom’s Curse is another of NetEnt’s Universal Monster slots. The term refers to the Universal Monsters films that were popular during the early 29th century and include titles such as The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Mummy, The Wolf Man, etc.
The video slot based on The Phantom of the Opera includes symbols iconic to the story, such as the white mask, roses, rings, mirrors, the famous chandelier and the main characters: the Phantom and Christine. The masked Phantom is the Wild symbol and the Chandelier is the Scatter.
The slot has three bonus features. First up is the Masked Phantom Re-Spin. This feature is triggered when a stacked Phantom symbol lands on reel 1 and a stacked masked symbol lands on reel 5. These symbols turn into sticky wilds and will remain for 1 free re-spin of the reels.
Next up is the Free Spins feature. If 3 chandelier symbols result on reels 1, 3 and 5 you’ll enter the Free Spins bonus round. During this feature, the chandelier will hang off to the side of the reels. Free spins will continue until all the ropes of the chandelier are cut. There are 5 ropes and every time a Phantom symbol lands on a specific reel, he’ll cut one of the ropes and that reel will become fully stacked and remain that way until the free spins round ends. Once the final rope is cut and the chandelier falls, the feature is over.
Finally, there is the Pick and Click feature. This one is activated when a stacked phantom symbol lands on reel 1 and the stacked Christine symbol lands on reel 5. There are two stages to this feature. You can either choose from 8 roses with cash prizes or select 1 of 3 mirrors to reveal a multiplier up to 3x.
There are many fantastic ways to score a win in this melodically spooky slot!
