Not many musicals ever become popular enough to warrant their own movies. The number of musicals whose movies were popular enough to get a slot version are even fewer! Despite many obstacles, The Phantom of the Opera was able to claim the honours of having his own Microgaming game! Players can look forward to an amazing performance that includes wild reels, pick-and-click bonuses and a free spins round! Are you ready to enjoy the opera at Labslots?
This online slot release looks quite nice. You should not expect mind-blowing visuals from The Phantom of the Opera. That said, the graphics that are there serve their purpose quite well. The background image depicts a crimson stage curtain, hiding what is going on behind it from us. During a special feature, the background will change to a beautiful view of the balcony, with statues on either side of the reel and both should look quite familiar to fans of the movie! The developers went all out to call back to many of the best scenes from the flick.

The Phantom of the Opera: How it Works
You play this slot on a five-reel board with 243 ways to win and wins are formed by collecting at least three matching icons in adjacent positions. All winning combinations must start with the leftmost reel, and follow an active way to win. The control panel should look to anyone familiar with Microgaming’s titles. All buttons are clearly labelled, preventing any confusion from occurring. Using it, you can spin the reels, set up Auto Play and change your total bet. On the left side of the screen, you can open the settings and paytable. Punters can wager between £0.30 and £37.50 on each spin!
Available symbol designs all tie in wonderfully into the world of the movie! Lower value icons include a set of theatre binoculars, a bottle of perfume, a love letter, a dressed up monkey and a ruby red rose! High value symbols are various characters from the movie. We will not spoil who makes an appearance; you can discover that for yourselves! Keep an eye out for the bonus letter, the logo Wild and the mask Scatter. All three play an important role in creating awesome bonuses for this game to use!
Bonus Rounds in The Phantom of the Opera
Players have access to two randomly activated bonuses. The first of which can occur on each spin of the reels! There is a chance for the chandelier to drop randomly, but this can only occur outside of special features and can turn up to three reels Wild! The second bonus requires you to find a letter on the fifth reel. You will receive a random cash prize worth up to 20x your total bet if you find it.
Collect at least three Scatters to win one of three bonuses! You will be allowed to choose which one suits your fancy, so make your choice carefully!
Music of the Night Bonus Feature
Music of the Night grants ten free spins. During this bonus, additional random effects can appear. This includes multipliers up to 4x, up to three Wild reels, up to five randomly placed Wilds or five extra free spins! Multiple special features can trigger on the same free spin.
Masquerade Bonus Feature
In Masquerade, you pick different masks to reveal cash prizes. You can also draw the option to pick again or to progress to the next level! There are three levels total, each one increasing available cash prizes. You start with three picks, and then get two additional ones at level two, and one more pick on level three.
The Phantom of the Opera Multiplier
All I Ask of You grants ten free spins with Dancing Wilds active. Christine and Raoul appear Wild, and dance to an adjacent position on each spin. When in the same position, they award a 3x multiplier. If they are horizontally adjacent, both reels turn Wild., but when both are on the same reel, that reel turns Wild. Meanwhile, if the pair is diagonally adjacent, they form a 2×2 block Wild!
The Phantom of the Opera Verdict
