The Wombat says: Ahh Venice… Built on more than 100 small islands on a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea, there are no roads in this beautiful city, just mysterious waterways and secret passages where anything happen – a stolen kiss from a masked lover, an invite to a decadent ball or even a big pay out on a jackpot.
Just don’t go there in August slot fans – it smells like a ruddy sewer…
Look and Feel
The Venetian Rose slot is inspired by the magical masked balls of the Venice Carnival, and tries to capture the sumptuous look and feel of the world famous event and its historical roots. The star is the Venetian Rose, a theme that follows in the footsteps of the likes of Irish Eyes 2 which also has a leading lady at the centre of things.
We like the background graphics with the domed Renaissance architecture, picturesque canals and traditional gondolas bobbing up and down on the lagoon under a deep blue sky. All in all it’s very pleasant. You should also grab your big ol’ white powder wig and fake beauty spots, as the Baroque-style soundtrack will transport you to the 1700s quicker than you can say ‘Casanova’.
It’s all about as far from the Spring Break slot as you can get. Well, we try and have something for everyone!
Venetian Rose Slot Game Play
Your job is to help the Venetian Rose find a suitor (the geezer in the bird mask) while filling up your coffers at the same time
This five-reel NextGen game has 25 paylines and starts at a minimum line bet of 0.01 and a maximum of 2.00, so there’s plenty of betting options available. It’s pretty standard fare (if you are looking for something more out of the ordinary try the Gods of Giza slot).
Now here are your symbols; a golden gondola, some opera goggles, a pink fan, a masked gentleman and Venetian Rose herself. These are joined on the reels by 9 and 10, and A, K, Q and J, and are worth a maximum of 150 points for 5 of a kind with the Ace.
Venetian Rose also acts the wild symbol on the reels, and will substitute for all other symbols in the game, except the Scatter. She’ll also pay out prizes ranging from 10 to 3,000 times your stake – for 3, 4 and 5 of a Kind.
Keep an eagle eye out for the elaborate Venetian Mask symbol – it’s acts the Scatter and if you land 3 of these bad boys on your screen, you will trigger 10 Free Spins. PLUS, during the Free Spin Round, all your wins are tripled. Mamma mia!
This wombat likes the gamble feature, as it makes Venetian Rose slot a bit more interesting. Gamble gives you the choice to go BIG on the reels, or to stick with what you know. Every time a win is awarded, players can either double or quadruple them by clicking on the Gamble button. All you need to do is predict the correct colour or suit of the next card. But guess it wrong, and it’s Game Over for you…
It’s not a bad game. Venetian Rose slot doesn’t provide a lot in the way of bonus features, but it’s easy on the eye and brings the luxurious and somewhat decadent Venice of old back to life rather nicely.
Wombat score 3/5
The game loses a point as the Free Spins feature is a little bit elusive…
