Posted 2.6.11 : New offering from the Rival online gambling software developer
The title of Rival Software's latest online slot – Opera Night – describes the theme, which is established by a comical animation in which a bulky soprano reaches for a note so high that it breaks the orchestra conductor's glasses.
The theme is continued across the 5 reels and 20 pay-lines of this well-animated and feature-rich game, with entries and exits from the theatre stage by a list of performers that includes traditional opera leads like a Japanese Geisha; the Phantom of the Opera masked tenor; a character from Figaro; an African queen; a sad clown, an American independence revolutionary, a knight in armour, and a Spanish flamenco dancer from ‘Carmen', along with members of the 18th century audience viewing the action through opera glasses.
Features include a second screen interactive bonus, Wilds, Scatters, up to 20 Free Spins with winnings tripled and Multipliers to assist the player in working towards a possible jackpot.
In the bonus round, a diva takes the stage and the player selects the pitch she can reach before breaking wine glasses, earning a reward for the right setting – predicting the level that will shatter all four glasses delivers an average jackpot of 1200 coins.
Rival have debuted a new feature in this game, titled The Opera Drop, in which the Phantom of the Opera is the trigger. Three or more Phantoms appearing across the reels cause these symbols to fall lower and be replaced by the symbols immediately above, with the prospect of reward.
