Secret Romance Slot Review

There's a degree of ambiguity about what the Secret Romance slot from Microgaming is about. Some reviews seem to think that it is about romantic love between two people and while that may be the case, the 'secret' prefix hints that this could be about something a little more than the usual boy meets girl and they fall in love type story.

Whatever the true meaning of the slot is, what you will find when you open it is a rather 1970s style backdrop in pink and purple and a slot game that offers the chance to win up to a very enticing 1,800,000 coins.

Secret Romance Slot Bonus Features

  • Mystery Symbols Feature – During the base game and Free Spins, there can be a stacked set of Mystery symbols on the reels, denoted by a closed red envelope. When landed, the envelope will open and in the base game will reveal one of the low or high value symbols or the scatter symbol. During free spins however, the Mystery Symbol can also transform into Wild symbols. Mystery Symbols are stacked three high in the base game but Super-Stacked during the free spins bonus.
  • Free Spins bonus – Trigger three or more of the scatter symbols in the base game to earn a shot at the free spins round where you will receive 14 free spins. During this round the Mystery Symbols are stacked up to 20 symbols high on all reels and you can increase the size of the multiplier in the round by landing three or more scatters in the bonus feature. The Mystery Symbol can also transform into a Wild during free spins. Once you have played through your 14 free spins the bonus round will end.

How does the Secret Romance slot play?

The Secret Romance slot is a very enjoyable and simple slot to play, ideal for a relatively new player to slots, while still offering enough depth and variance to tempt the more experienced player. I’m not a fan of saccharine-sweet love themed slots, but the ‘secret’ part of this game does give it a little extra edge.

This is a medium to lower variance game and the paylines are not selectable, however you can alter the size of the bet easily and with bets ranging from $0.15 to $15, this is definitely aimed at the medium to lower stakes player.

The game itself plays at a nice, even pace. The symbols on the reels include playing card lows that are not that inspiring, plus a number of Romantic-themed items including perfume, brooches, masks and a red rose.

The Secret Romance logo is the in game wild and is used to create winning paylines. The main feature of the base game however is the Mystery Symbol, which when landed with the right combinations offers the best chance of a bigger base game win.

Bigger wins tend to come in the Free Spins bonus, which is landed when you hit three or more of the ring scatter symbols across the reels. You can increase the size of the multiplier in this round by landing more scatters, but you cannot trigger additional free spins.

Secret Romance is fun, cheap to play and offers good value particularly for lower stakes players.
