The Venetian Rose online video slot game developed by NextGen is available, through licensing agreements, at online casinos powered by Amaya Gaming. With the title rendered in elegant, curvy pink writing, and vividly coloured photo-realistic backdrops and symbols, this is the Venice of Casanova, where the wealthy play at masked balls and classical music accompanies the action. An aura of wealth and subliminal lust hangs over the five reels and 25 paylines.
The racy action is more suggested than displayed: a brilliant view of sunlit clouds behind the city, with the gondolas bobbing up and down unceasingly on the canals, contributes to a relaxed vibe in general. The Venetian Rose reels are housed in an elegant marble frame, adorned with roses, against the watercraft and waterways of Venice in the background. Players can adjust the number of active paylines, and set bets per line between 0.02 and 5.00 in the relevant currency. All the human characters come to life in brief animations when they are involved in a win.
Ten Payline Symbols, up to 750 Coins
Although Venetian Rose uses the hackneyed casino slots‘ symbols for six of its low values, the 9, 10, J, Q, K and A are at least designed in the same ornate, attractive script as the game’s title, in a variety of pastel hues. They are matched in pairs with equal value prizes, which rise to 150 coins for five Ks or As.
The Venetian Rose themed symbols start with another matched pair: a woman’s fan and her opera glasses. They win 15, 50 or 250 coins for three, four or five matches. A lady taking a gondola to a night out is next, winning prizes for two matches or more and scoring 500 coins for five of a kind. The top payline symbol is a masked man: perhaps Casanova himself. He also wins for two matches or better, with five matches scoring a prize of 750 coins.
Lady Wild can Pay 1,000 Coins
An elegant lady at the ball, her towering wig ornamented with roses, is presumably the Venetian Rose herself. She serves as the title’s Wild icon, standing in for other payline symbols to make more winning lines. When she forms her own matching combos from Reel 1, she wins extra prizes for two or more consecutive matches: 10, 100, 1,000 or 3,000 coins.
Scatter Activates Bonus Round in Ballroom
A brightly decorated mask for a masquerade ball fills the Scatter role in Venetian Rose. Two or more appearing anywhere trigger an instant win of between 1X and 200X the entire bet on the spin, and three or more Scatters, as is common, activates a bonus round of free spins.
The scene changes to a chandelier-lit ballroom and balcony looking over the canals at evening, while the lady and gentleman dance past romantically. The player is awarded 10 free spins, and any prizes won during the bonus round are tripled. Although it is the game’s only bonus feature, the X3 multiplier can make this round a profitable one for players.
