Women are becoming an increasing number of the gaming population. This is not just our observation.
The iGaming industry has also noticed this, and are designing casino games to appeal to them. Secret Romance has all the telltale signatures of a popular romance novel.
Available special features include mystery icons and free spins with a multiplier trail.
Theme, Graphics and Sounds
Masks, broches and roses. One look at the symbol designs and we can already imagine the story in our heads. Two nobles madly in love with one another, but they sadly cannot be together.
The background image is nice, if a bit simple. It surrounds the reels with rose petals. The mix of pink and purple is something you either love or loathe, but we enjoyed it overall.
You play this release on a five-reel, three-row board. Secret Romance has 15 fixed paylines. You cannot turn individual paylines off because of this.
It limits how low you can wager, but it also prevents you from lowering your chances of winning. To win, land three or more identical icons in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel.
All wins must follow an active payline, or their cash prize will not be granted.
During normal gameplay, mystery symbols can appear in all positions. They appear stacked during normal gameplay and become super stacked during free spins.
After landing on the playing field, all mystery icons will transform into the same symbol. They can become any icon except for the Wild.
During free spins, that limitation is removed. A very strong incentive to overlap the special features!
Find three or more Scatters to win a cash prize and fourteen free spins. Land three or more Scatters while free spins are already being played to increase the multiplier trail.
The multiplier trail can be increased to a maximum of 5x. Scatters also grant a cash prize depending on how many appear on the board simultaneously. Players will get a 1200x payout if you get a full screen of Scatters.
Where To Play Secret Romance?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
The RTP for this slot is 95.86%. This is slightly below the current average of 96%. However, this minor disadvantage should not distract you from all the great things this game offers.
You can bet between $0.15 and $15 on each spin. You can change your bet in two ways.
The first is using the plus and minus buttons. The second is to change the coin size and coins per line using the settings page.
Microgaming releases do not come with a high volatility often. However, Secret Romance shows us how fantastic they can be when they do appear!
The slot’s top prize is an impressive 6000x your total stake. You will have to work hard to land that jackpot!
This game is not perfect, but it comes close. We like the theme, and the graphics that bring it to life are fantastic.
The special features are simple and engaging, and can create some incredible wins! Even if you do not win the jackpot, you can land some impressive prizes.
The improvements we would like to see are minor. More animations would be great, as would a better RTP.
We give this release 3 out of 5 stars. Well worth your time if you enjoy a romantic theme.
