Love Potion Details Page
The Microgaming software operates smoothly and has several customization features. Players can enable or disable the audio and can increase the game speed by selecting the Quick Spin option. However the Auto Play feature is less comprehensive than in some other online casino software packages. Conditions for automatically stopping the Auto Play are fewer.
Easy to Understand (10)
The pay table and game rules are easy to understand. A comprehensive Help file is provided in case some newbie players require it.
Graphics & Sounds (10)
The styling of the symbols and the animations show details. The background graphics and the graphics and animation in the bonus game on the second screen are equally detailed. The soft romantic music in the background in the main game adds to the enjoyment.
Theme and Concept (10)
Valentine’s Day is a very popular slots theme and Love Potion is one of the best slots in this genre. The symbols on the reels and the other graphics bring to life the romance of the earlier era. The Love Struck Bonus round complements the theme well.
Game Features (10)
Love Potion is a feature rich game. There is a free spins round that multiplies payouts 5 times. There is a bonus game on the second screen. Players can activate the optional gamble game after each spin. The wild symbol does not multiply payouts. However, this weakness is compensated by the additional bonus symbol, which offers scatter payouts. This is addition to the regular scatter symbol.
Betting Options (8)
The biggest weakness here is that there are only 9 paylines. This means that the payouts occur less frequently than in 25 payline or 30 payline slots. This may drive the impatient players away. The lesser number of paylines also restricts the total bet per spin and this adversely affects the scatter and bonus payouts.
Love Potion does not offer any progressive jackpot. Therefore one would have hoped for higher fixed jackpot payouts. However the fixed jackpot payouts are not very attractive and certainly do not compensate for the absence of a progressive jackpot.
