Romeo and Juliet is the best known love story since William Shakespeare penned it centuries ago and Romeo and Juliet Slots takes the couple’s love story to the reels with two walking wilds and a scatter that awards 25 free spins with a sticky, stacked wild. Most people know how the story of the star-crossed lovers ends; those who play the slot title have a much better chance at a happy ending and they may also walk away with some extra cash too.
The graphics in Romeo and Juliet may seem too basic for some but the two main characters and the other icons are rendered in a simple and more classic style. Players will not find dancing icons or flashing colors here and nor should they, as this title boasts a somber theme. The symbols are what bettors would expect from a slot with this theme; a white rose, a bottle of poison and a dagger that represent the tragic ending. Fans of the love story will also find Mercutio, Tybalt and a very basic 10 through Ace done in block red. Romeo and Juliet are the wilds that can replace all other symbols on the reels and also trigger the 25 free spin scatter.
Betting on the couple to have a happy ending isn’t possible but players can make a wide range of wagers on the reels. The title has six coin sizes ranging from $0.01 up to $0.50 with the ability to bet between one to ten coins per line wagered. A full 25-payline spin has a bet differential of $0.50 to $125 giving all players a chance to use their favorite strategies in this game. Penny players and high rollers alike can spin the reels of Romeo and Juliet in accordance with their entertainment budget or just as a personal preference.
Romeo is a wild symbol that only appears on the first reel and Juliet is a wild that only appears on the fifth reel but both are walking wilds. When either of the characters appears on their respective reels, a free spin is given and the wild moves over one reel; Romeo walks to the right and Juliet walks to the left. A single wild of either character will walk across the reels and will hopefully produce wins for the gambler. When Romeo and Juliet are both on the board and inhabit the same reel, the scatter game is triggered. The entire reel that the two lovers are on becomes a sticky, stacked wild and the player is awarded 25 free spins. The stacked wild stays until all 25 free games have been played, and the wilds are then removed from the board and the game reverts back to regular play.
The theme behind this game can be seen as the greatest love story ever told, the love story with the saddest ending, or both. As a slot title, Romeo and Juliet holds great potential for players who like scatters with an abundance of free games; the free spins with the walking wilds are also a great way to have a chance at scoring a big win in this game. Romeo and Juliet came to a very sad ending but players of Romeo and Juliet Slots may walk away from their game screen with a big win and a very happy ending.
