New Game Review: Universal Monsters: The Phantom’s Curse

The Phantom of the Opera is an immortal tale of mystery, impossible romance, and some chilling action. And that’s exactly what NetEnt had in mind when grabbing inspiration from the classic novel to release ‘Universal Monsters: The Phantom’s Curse’, its second video slot release of 2018, right after Twin Spin DeLuxe!


This finely detailed and visually haunting game will not disappoint, as it comes heavily geared with some thrilling features to get everyone’s hearts pumping, NetEnt’s style.


What’s in it? First off, The Phantom’s Curse is a 5 reel slot with 40 fixed paylines. On the base game, if you’re able to land the Phantom’s chandelier scatter symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 you’ll trigger the Free Spins mode, where the chandeliers will hang over the reels by ropes, getting cut off every time the Phantom symbol shows up. Once all ropes have been cut off, the Free Spins round ends.


The Free Spins feature may get you up to 800x your stake by landing stacked Phantom symbols on the reels, which act as sticky wilds.


Another feature is the Re-spin feature, triggered when landing a double stacked Phantom symbol and a double stacked Mask symbol on reels 1 and 5, causing them to turn into sticky wilds for one re-spin.


But the most breath-taking action comes when triggering the Pick-and-Click Bonus round. Get a stacked Phantom on reel 1 matched with a stacked Christine symbol on reel 5 and you’ll be taken to a screen with eight roses hiding coin prizes to choose from. You’ll then be taken to a different screen with 3 mirrors. Each mirror hides a multiplier of either 1x, 2x or 3x the coin prize gained from the roses bonus game, earning you up to 7,200 coins!


With an RTP of 96.5% and a delightfully designed atmosphere, we’re at yet another NetEnt jewel sure to induce some supernatural enchantment.


The game is now available in Fantasino for your playing pleasure.
