It’s that time of year when love is in the air. Cupid’s off somewhere shooting arrows at unwitting couples, masses of personalised chocolates are being handed out across the country and Malcolm and Lucky are gearing up for another seasonal blog based on love slots. That’s right, it’s Kerching’s Valentine’s Day slots brought to you by the lovable duo themselves.
Valentine’s Day Slots
M: Lucky mate, Happy Valentine’s Day!
L: And to you, Malc.
M: Are you taking any lucky ladies out tonight, lover boy?
L: Afraid not ,pal… it’s another year of Netflix binges and doggy treats for me.
M: Ah well, at least you can keep us company for the latest Kerching blog.
L: I do love those to be fair, what’s the theme for this week then?
M: I thought we might stick with the theme of the day and cover the best Valentine’s Day slots on Kerching.
L: Sounds like a plan, shall we get started?
Da Vinci Diamonds
L: Wait a minute Malc, what’s this one got to do with love?
M: Valentine’s Day is all about romance and what’s more romantic than sparkly jewels and gems?
L: Fair point. Nothing says I love you like a massive rock. Tell me more about the game then.
M: Right, Da Vinci Diamonds is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot based around the classic works from the great artist himself. That’s Leonardo Davinci I’m referring to.
M: Just checking you are up on your renaissance painters. So where was I? Oh yeah, the symbols include his most famous works like the Mona Lisa and the game doesn’t skimp out on the special features.
L: Yes, go on…
M: To start, De Vinci Diamonds has a mechanic called Tumbling Wilds, so every time you land a win from a spin, the symbols involved in that combination will disappear and be replaced by new ones from the top of the reels. These can then immediately form new winning combinations which could net you a tasty payout.
L: I like that the sound of that! What does it have in the way of standalone bonuses though?
M: There’s only one my canine chum, but it’s a belter. It’s a free spins feature and to trigger it you’ll have to land three of the bonus symbols on reels one, two and three. The in-game symbols will change and, though there aren’t any multipliers, it makes for a generous combination when combined with the tumbling reels mechanic. What’s more, you can re-trigger this bonus for up to 300 extra re-spins!
L: Wow, what a way to start! Well played, you.
M: Yes indeed mate, though I suspect you’ll enjoy the other entries too! With that in mind let’s have a gander at the next one.
L: It suddenly smells different in here mate. You usually smell, errrrr, more pungent.
M: Oi! Manners Lucky, manners. That smell is the scent of all the flowers in our next slot!
L: Oh right, let me guess….Flowers?
M: Yes, you cheeky mare.
L: Well do on then, give us a quick rundown.
M: Considering the theme, all the visuals and symbols fit well in this slot. It’s bright, bold and colourful, with the symbols all different colours. Each has their own little personality, and they can even double up on the reels, becoming twice as valuable.
L: Cool. What is there in the way of bonus features though?
M: There’s only one in this game too, but it’s another good one. It’s a free spins mode and is triggered by landing specific numbers of the cloud bonus symbol. This, as with the other symbols in the game, can double up so it’s actually easier to activate this bonus feature. Landing four, five, six, seven or eight of the bonus symbols will win you 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 free spins respectively. Wilds will appear stacked on the reels in this mode and any wins you get will be trebled. This feature can be re-triggered as well, meaning the potential payout is huge.
L: Stacked wilds, multipliers and free spins? Blimey, that sounds alright, doesn’t it?
M: It does mate and the fun doesn’t stop there, we’re only halfway through.
L: I’m not too sure about this one Malc, I’m not a fan of doctors.
M: It’s alright Lucky, there aren’t any vets here, just a smooth-talking doctor and his charming companion. The game is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot set the busy environment of a hospital. As such the visuals and symbols are a strange combination of medical apparatus and love themed items. Dr Love himself is the wild for instance and the scatter symbol is represented by a ‘love meter.’
L: Right, very weird. Any bonuses to speak of?
M: Yes, there’s a free spins feature present in the game that you can trigger by landing the love meter symbol. Three, four or five will get you 10, 15 or 20 respectively. All wins in this mode will have a 3x multiplier applied to them and you can re-trigger for more re-spins by landing the bonus symbol three or more times again. Finally, there is a gamble feature in the game where you can wager your winnings to double, or even quadruple them.
L: Okay, that wasn’t as bad as I thought. In fact, it seems like a pretty sound slot to be honest. I’d still like to move on quickly though.
M: It’s alright Lucky lad, we’re on the home stretch now. Just the one game left, so without further ado…
Masques of San Marco
M: Ah Venice, show me a more romantic city and I’ll give you a million pounds.
L: What about Paris?
M: Moving swiftly onwards, have you ever heard of the Masques of San Marco slot?
L: I don’t think I have. Enlighten me.
M: Well then, you’re in for a treat my friend as this is one the most unique slots I’ve come across. This is a dualPlay slot, meaning it’s played with two sperate halves, each containing 20 paylines to make 40 in total. The game is based on the mask festival that takes place annually in St Marks Squares in Venice and the visuals mirror this well. Expect to see extravagant masks and the like throughout your gameplay.
L: It looks proper sleek mate, you know there’s only one thing I’m interested in though.
M: I do Lucky, and you’ll be pleased to know that this slot has plenty of bonus features. First, let’s talk about the collapsing reels mechanic. This is essentially the same as the tumbling reels in Da Vinci Diamonds. Each time you get a win, the symbols involved will disappear and be replaced by new ones that could create a new winning combination. This can obviously be a big help to your overall winnings as you could get wins without even needing to spin.
L: Beautiful, what are the other features?
M: Just the one mate, and it’s another free spins mode. To trigger it, you’ll have to land three of the bonus symbols in the top or bottom half of the reels. You’ll start with six spins and the line between the two halves is removed, meaning that the reels function with 40 paylines. They will keep collapsing as well so, even though you can’t re-trigger this bonus, it feels like a lot more than six you get.
L: What a game to end on Malc, anything else to add?
M: Only that you can play Da Vinci Diamonds, Flowers, Doctor Love and Masques of San Marco at Kerching. To find out more about each of these games, simply go to their pages for a detailed summary of their mechanics and gameplay. Don’t forget about our welcome offer either if you’re a newbie!
