The new Phantom of the Opera Slot, based on the beloved classic love story seen by nearly 150 million people worldwide and grossing approximately $6 billion dollars in the process, is now available for play in Canadian online casinos.
The transformative musical’s transition to the virtual reels is already being hailed as equally transformative as its on stage counterpart.
The creation of the slot comes on the heels of an announcement in February of this year that leading online games developer Microgaming signed an agreement with The Really Useful Group, who owns the rights to the Phantom franchise.
“Working with The Really Useful Group to bring this game to market has been a pleasure; we are excited to see how the game performs in the coming months,” said David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, in a statement on the company’s website.
Stunning Visuals; Soaring Musical Score
The Phantom of the Opera slot is centered on its iconic visual splendor and beautiful, uplifting music. Microgaming made sure to transfer it over properly, immersing players in all the sensational emotions that make Phantom so beloved. The entire musical score is present including All I ask of You, Think of Me, and Learn to be Lonely. Visually, the iconic mask and mysterious, shadowed themes bring this enchanting world to life in all its glory.
“The Phantom of the Opera™ is a mesmeric game, combining a new game mechanic with visually stunning artwork and a musical score that is legendary,” Reynolds said.
Highly Anticipated Slots Action
Even in the online slots world, it’s rare that a game comes with as much anticipation as Phantom of the Opera. Microgaming took great care to ensure that players will not only be entranced by the beauty of the story, but also enthralled by the action of the slot.
The game is a 5×3 reel setup with 243 ways to win, and includes a number bonus games focused on iconic Phantom moments including “The Chandelier Bonus” — centered on the Phantom cutting down the famed chandelier — and a “Music of the Night” feature offering up wild reels, free spins, and more.
Together, the cinematic and gameplay wonder of the Phantom slot is quickly making it just as iconic as the story itself.
“There has been much hype about the slot since we unveiled our plans at ICE in February and I’m delighted that the stage is now set and it is ready to launch with our vast operator base. Our incredibly talented game studio have truly realized the brand,” Reynolds said.
