Swinging Sweethearts Slot
A little bit of romance in your life is always a welcome addition. If you’re unable to find the real thing, then read a book, a movie or why not play the ‘Swinging Sweethearts’ slot game from Rival Gaming.
There have been plenty of romantic match-making game shows on television. We endured ‘Blind Date’ for more years than I care to mention and then there’s ‘Mr & Mrs.’ A game show that causes plenty of unromantic arguments after the husband still can’t remember what his wife’s favourite chocolates are and then discovers what his wife think is his most annoying habit.
This attractive looking slot game has five reels, three rows of symbols and a total of 50 pay-lines. Now that’s a huge amount to try and get some wins from. Don’t think though that you have to be activating all of them on each spin of the reels. That might just put a bit of pressure on your budget so it’s up to you to decide just how many you can activate. The minimum cost of playing this game is just £0.01 and the maximum cost £125. That upper limit is one that will have the high-rollers of you out there drooling. For the rest of us, it’s just a case of working out a budget and sticking to it, then having some fun playing and hopefully getting some good wins.
This comes across as a rather girly game with its pink look. The reels are transparent which is a nice touch as it means you can see the television studio in the background. The soundtrack isn’t the greatest to be honest, just your usual romantic cheesy tune played on a piano. Thankfully it can be muted.
The symbols in this game are of course rather romantic ones and cartoonish in their look. There’s a rose, a heart-shaped box of chocolates (the ones women love to receive then moan when it makes them fat), a toaster (one of about ten received as a wedding present), some cash, a gold ring and two male contestants, one of which looks as if he’s never had a girlfriend in his life. To fill out the reels and be the lower paying symbols in this game are the Nine to Ace playing cards. Why there’s so many of them I’m not sure, a couple more theme-related ones would have been preferred.
Every gameshow of this type used to have a pretty blonde hostess. This is no exception and the hostess with the shiny teeth is the wild in this game. You’ll be really pleased to see her because the wild has the ability to substitute for other symbols in order to get you some good winning combiations. The real bonus in this game is that that does happen the win you get is multiplied by four. That sounds great but remember there’s all those playing card symbols that aren’t worth that much. The wild will help you get a steady stream of wins but they won’t be of the large variety. It can’t substitute for the host symbol as that is the scatter here and helps get you through to the bonus game, more about that soon.
It’s the gold ring that you need to keep a good look out for as five of those win you 1000x your line stake. Five of the cash symbols on an active pay-line will win you 750x your line stake. The rather geeky looking male wins you 600x for five on an activated pay-line.
Before you play the game for real, have some free games and then take a look at the paytable. That shows you how much each of the winning combinations pay and has details of the bonus game.
There’s just the one bonus game here but it’s one that can prove quite lucrative. To trigger it you need to get three or more of the host symbols anywhere on the reels. That’s important as it means you don’t have to be activating all the pay-lines in order to have a chance of triggering the bonus game, just one will do really.
Once triggered you receive 15 free spins. You’ll be even more keen to get the wild symbol helping you as any wins it creates sees it multiplied by 8x. Even better news is that if you get three or more of the scatter symbols then this sees you being awarded with five more free spin.
This is a really entertaining game and you’ll be really keen to give it a good long play. The theme is a good one even if it is a bit girly. The bonus round doesn’t take too long to trigger and can be really lucrative if the wild and scatter symbols help you.
