Venice, known as the city of love and romance can be used as great inspiration. From the looks to the history Venice is an amazing town. Taking advantage of that, WMS created Hearts of Venice, a 5 reel slot with 4 rows and 50 ways for the player to land a winning combo. It has some pretty cute features and satisfying payouts. A game for those that are true romantics.
Founded in 1994, WMS is one of the top gaming providers today. They have released their first slot game in 1996, and have since then made an empire. They have provided us with many fun themed slots, not to mention other casino games. Hearts of Venice has a very cutesy theme since the city of love is what it's about. There is a lot to admire about Venice, the tiny canals and boat transportation, the old buildings and amazing architecture. It's for sure one of the world's most beautiful cities and can be quite a romantic destination. WMS managed to paint the picture of Venice very well.
The background is a canal with gondolas and beautifully designed buildings. The sun is setting and the lamps are on which makes the scene even more romantic. The graphics are great as expected from the provider. The soundtrack is a bit surprising since one would expect a violin playing or something like that. The sound effects that are provided are quite fun, so it’s not that bad. Some of the low paying symbols include pillars, gondolas, mastheads, and roses. A bit higher up are bridges, statues, lamps, and gondoliers. The highest paying symbol is the lady with the rose and the games wild symbol is the Hearts of Venice logo. The scatter is represented by a silhouette of two lovers. There's a lot going on, but with good reason, so the city of love can be best portrayed.
Not only does this game look good, it also offers the player the chance to win up to 250x the stake in a single spin. The player can bet a minimum of 0,40 and a maximum of 500 coins per spin. Hearts of Venice is a medium-high volatility game that has a 96,12% RTP which is quite a good combination.
The features in Hearts of Venice are all love-themed with a lot of red hearts involved. The first feature is the Transforming Symbols feature that is triggered at random. When triggered stacked hearts appear on one reel and turn into a symbol of the same kind. The transforming hearts trigger the Hot Hot Super Respin Mode feature when they land on the first reel. All wilds including the stack are held for 2 respins. Any wilds that the player lands during the 2 spins are held as well. The feature ends with all the hearts transforming into the same symbol and the player hopefully gets a great payout.
Hearts of Venice also has a Free Spins feature that is activated when 3 scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. The player then gets 10 free spins with hearts being added and transformed during them. Another great thing is that the Hot Hot Super Respin Mode feature can be triggered as well, and landing 3 more scatters awards the player with 10 more free spins. The possibilities that the feature offers are endless.
Hearts of Venice by WMS is a game for the players who enjoy a cute yet cultural theme. Everything is made in the spirit of love and also captures Venice in a beautiful way. The game offers some interesting and unique features that really do pay well. The maximum payout is for some not that great, but considering the games' volatility and reasonable RTP it shouldn't be an issue. For all the hopeless romantics out there, this is the game.
