The wombat says: Microgaming’s Victorian Villain slot is a game in the crime genre (who doesn’t love a thriller?), where you take on the villain of the game’s title and his motley crew of characters to become the number one top dog. Just watch out for the strong arm of the law and a private detective on your case too!
If you like your game play to transport you to the past and convincingly douse you in sights and sounds of the Victorian era (this marsupial loves a but of fancy dress- the Winning Wizards slot is another favourite), then hoist your corsets, tip your top hats and make a date with Victorian Villain.
Look and Feel
This game’s excellent theme immerses us players in the grimy world of London’s backstreetsin the 1890s – complete with gothic lettering, a spooky vibe and a cast of characters straight out of a Victorian whodunit!
You know the deal as soon as you see this game: the reels are set in a dark city street with lampposts framing the reels with a cluster of skulls at the top. If you want something bright, go for the Mad Hatters slot as this game is moody! There’s something of the macabre about the appearance of the villain himself in this dark world.
The game’s soundtrack is frankly hair-raising! Once you spin the reels you unleash a villainous cackle with soaring violins and creepy footsteps on the cobbled streets!
Victorian Villain has 5 reels, 3 rows and an ‘All Pays’ structure (unlike, say, the Free Spin City slot which has 20 pay-lines) – just land those symbols on adjacent reels and you’ll win! The high value icons of the game are the motley crew; a bowler-hat wearing master villain holding a skull-topped cane, a female red-haired sleuth, a mysterious raven-haired beauty and a truncheon-wielding police officer! While your lower value icons are the usual playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K & A.
The Wild is the Victorian Villain logo which substitutes for all icons except for this game’s exceptional two Scatters. This game’s extra features are all about the double Scatters, with Scatter 1, a toothy skull, and Scatter 2, a Search for Clues logo which launch the extra features.
Villainous Free Spins
If you can chase down those bad boy Scatter 1 logos (the skull) onto reel 1, 2 and 3 then you trigger the Villain Free Spins feature.
There are three different Free Spin modes on offer. How about 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier? 10 free spins with a 5x multiplier? Or 5 free spins with a 10x multiplier? What’s not to like about these? Get spinning!
Search for Clues Bonus
When you are in the Free Spins bonus, you can also enter the Search for Clues feature. Simply land the Search for Clues Scatters on reels 3,4, and 5 and then you’ll become the clue hunter!
You will enter a room full of clues to explore. Touch each item to reveal its points value, but beware if you click on a symbol and reveal the Collect sign, then your cash will be accumulated from this second screen mode and re-enter the base game.
This wombat LOVES the gothic and dark vibe of Victorian Villain slot. The free spins were pretty lucrative, plus this Wombat enjoyed the Search for Clues mode a lot. All in all this is a spooky atmospheric slot with enough extras to keep us coming back for more.
Wombat score: 5/5
