What comes to mind when you think about the title of this slot? We were expecting to find ourselves in the middle of some wondrous theatre. Where masquerade masks and extravagant costumes would be on display. Instead, this NextGen Gaming slot takes you into the middle of the forest. And not just any forest, but a magical forest at that! Moonlight manages to pierce through the cracks in the canopy of trees, just enough to illuminate the floor. And it is there that the Theatre of Night takes place. As you spin the reels of this game, you’ll hear some of the most wonderful sounds. Meanwhile, your eyes will witness some intriguing visuals, as the high quality graphics make for exciting gameplay. Of course, a game like this wouldn’t be complete without a nice selection of speciality features. And fortunately, the developer has chosen to incorporate some of these, which we’ll get to later.
The Theatre is in Play
The layout of this slot presents players with a total of five reels and three rows, so it’s a standard interface. Regular slot players should find it to be very familiar. It is upon these reels and rows that you will be able to see the game’s various different symbols. The first four of these are all relative to playing card suits. So, you’ll get to see the blue spade, the green club, the purple diamond and the red heart. Collectively, these are the lowest paying symbols of Theatre of Night. Next in line, you can see icons of a pink flower and a luminescent butterfly. Either of these provides maximum rewards of 150 coins. The very last standard symbol of this game comes in the form of the hummingbird. Five of this symbol coming into view on a winning bet line will pay out up to 400 coins.
Not only does this slot provide some appealing graphics and design features, but it also has 10 different bet lines. These cannot go through any sort of customisation as they are set in place. However, all players do have the chance to customise the value of the wager that they place per spin. This is done by using the relevant slider bar. Doing so will allow you to move the amount of the bet that you place between the minimum of £0.01 and upwards to £10 per line. A maximum overall wager possibility of £250 per spin is possible in this game. You can also use the game’s ‘Autoplay Spins’ function. With this, you can set the reels off spinning up to 50 consecutive times at the same wager level.
Magical Special Features
As we said before, you shouldn’t expect this game to not have some interesting specialities in it. NextGen Gaming has actually made sure to incorporate one or two appealing features into the game. First of all, you will see the wild icon. This symbol manages to stand in for all other icons on the reels in order to form a winning combination. If five of them come into view on a winning pay line, you will receive a maximum reward of 750 coins. These symbols can appear on all reels during Firefly Re-Spins only though.
However, the wild is able to come into view on reels two, three and four during base gameplay. Should three of these show up on these reels, you will trigger the previously spoken of Firefly Re-Spins. You’ll get six of these re-spins. And while this mode is in play, the third reel becomes a stack of wilds. Furthermore, certain symbols will also become wild during the Firefly Re-Spins.
The Final Word
While the game doesn’t really deliver a huge amount of special features, the ones it does have are very appealing. Theatre of Night is very appealing on the whole, featuring very high quality graphics and impressive gameplay. However, the imagery and soundtrack are really what make it a great game. They merge together in order to offer up a wonderfully delightful slot from NextGen Gaming.
