Esmeralda Online Slot Machine Review

playnowbet365

The Bells, the Bells, that may be a quote you remember from a certain film, that being the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and as part of the rollout of new slot games from Playtech in May 2014, we have found a brand new slot titled Esmeralda. We are 99% convinced the film is what this slot is based upon as there are Tambourine reel symbols on the slot, and we do recall she loved to bash such a thing in the film.

This game, whilst it can award a set of free spins, has in fact quite a number of them that can be awarded as you will shortly discover, and with a progressive jackpot up for grabs these are two reasons why we think you should give this brand new slot game a little playtime.

Stake Dependent Progressive Jackpot

The progressive jackpot that can be won on this slot is only activated once you have put one of four maximum bet spins into live play. You need to play for maximum bet stakes of 2.00, 5.00, 10.00 or 25.00 to have any chance of winning the corresponding progressive jackpot.

This is awarded when you get all five of the Esmeralda reel symbols forming on any activated payline, with one of those maximum stake best in play. Failure to play for those listed max bets stakes will see you being awarded a consolation jackpot which is worth 15,000. So do try and play for max bet stakes to have a chance of winning what may just be a life changing jackpot.

Win Up 70 Initial Free Spins

You are going to find on each reel a set of Scatter symbols. These symbols are Stacked Scatter symbols so it is possible that you will get three of them spinning in on each reel. Should you spin in eight or more of them then you are going to be awarded with a set of free spins, the more Scatters that do spin in the more free spins you are awarded with.

You are awarded with a set of 15, 17, 19, 20, 22, 25, 35 or 70 free spins when you spin in 8 to 15 of these reel symbols respectively. The free spins bonus game can of course be retriggered and the same number of free spins will be awarded depending on how many Scatter symbols spin in on any one single free spin you play off.

Win up to 2,500.00 via the Gamble Game

If you have spun in any winning combination and you fancy trying to increase that payouts value, then you can always give the Gamble button a click. By doing so you will then be able to take your chance on a double or noting, multi stage bonus game.

You are faced with having to predict the colour of a playing card. If you pick Red and the card when turned over is Red then your gambled amount is doubled, make an incorrect guess and you will lose that base game spun in winning payout.

You are permitted to gamble any base game winning payouts value repeatedly. However, the maximum amount you can win on any one single Gamble game feature you opt to play is 2,500.00.

Esmeralda Reel Symbols and Payouts

The Wild symbol is the Esmeralda Jackpot symbol which as mentioned above can award you with either the progressive jackpot or a 15,000 coin jackpot depending on the stake levels you play this slot game for.

Be aware that this Wild symbols will stand in for the Scatter symbols during the free spins bonus game, but when it appears during any base game spin it stands in only for the other standard reel symbols and not the Scatter symbols.

The Scatter Rose symbols in addition to triggering the respective number of free spins mentioned above, will also award a total staked amount multiplier which is based on how much you wagered on the base game you get a set of them spinning in. The number of Scatters needed to trigger a Scatter pay payout is five of them, anywhere in view on the screen.

You will also find two unique Male Character reel symbols in play on all five reels, and whenever you get matching set of five of them on any activated payline you will receive a winning payout of 1,000 coins in total.

The other reel symbols include a Tambourine symbol, a Guitar symbol and both a set of Earrings and Necklace reel symbols, a set of Playing Card symbols are also in play on all five reels.

Playing Tips for the Esmeralda Slot Game

One aspect of playing this slot game is its theoretical payout percentage. If you are playing this slot with the required maximum bet stake in place to activate the progressive jackpot then the RTP is 91.73% + 1.7%.
