The lady in red who is the star of this slot also has long white gloves, and is holding a 1920’s style microphone. As soon as the laid-back soundtrack kicks in, you’ll realise that this game is all about the jazz. There is a band, tumbler full of whiskey and red roses. It would seem that this lady is something of a star. You will see flashes from the camera when scatter symbols hit.
Those scatter symbols lead to the single bonus feature. This is a free spins bonus game, where any wins you hit are tripled. There are wild symbols in the base game, and some big line wins are available for 5 of a kind with the top symbols.
As well as classic jazz music, you’ll find a classic slot design. This is a 5 by 3 grid, with 25 pay lines crossing from the left. You can adjust the number of lines, coin size (starting at just 1c and up) and add a multiplier of up to 10 coins per line. If you choose the ‘expert’ settings panel, you will also be offered a configurable auto play.
Checking the pay table shows some potential for big line hits. These are headed up by the wild symbols, which show a Lady in Red logo. 5 of these on one of the win-lines will get you a healthy 12500 coins. Just 4 get 2000 coins, and there are consolation prizes of 200 coins for 3 and 10 coins for 4. As usual, wilds act as substitutes for the other symbols to create more wins. Any wins which are created with the logo wild are paid double compared with what is on the pay table.
The singing lady herself is the best paying regular symbol. She will hit the high notes with 2500 coins for 5, and (along with the band symbol) also pays down to two of a kind from the left. The band get you 500 coins for 5, roses with a lipstick kiss 300 and that hard liquor 300.
Smaller wins are made up by playing card symbols. These will be very familiar to slots players, with aces down to nines in play this time.
Look out for the paparazzi – the camera will not only flash at you, it can bring some big windfalls. 5 of these in any position on the reels gets you a generous 200 times your total bet amount. Smaller prizes are 20x your bet for 4, 5x that bet for 3 and 2x your bet for just 2.
In addition to these cash prizes, 3 or more camera scatters will also trigger the free spins bonus game. You get 15 free spins for 3, 20 spins for 4 and 25 spins for 5.
While the soundtrack changes, the main draw of the bonus feature is not the band. Instead you’ll be hoping that this is the time those bigger line wins drop in. The reason is a 3x multiplier you will get on all wins. Wild symbols will still double the wins, giving even more big win potential.
You can retrigger this bonus (and will earn doubled scatter wins) with 3+ of the camera symbols during play.
This is not a new slot, though manages to create a cool and laid-back atmosphere with older graphics. Above the reels you will see an open red curtain, with the name of the slot also in red. The reels are framed in a gold surround, which has some hints of art deco along the bottom and in the control buttons.
While the lady looks glamourous mid-song, the red roses stand out among the symbols. These have a string of pearls and a letter with a lipstick kiss on it. You will also find a symbol showing the band, this is taken from over the shoulder of the piano player. There are some basic animations in place. Look out for the camera symbols showing a classic old-style journalist.
For me the soundtrack makes the slot. This is a classy chilled jazz number, with additions from different instruments when you hit wins.
If you enjoy older, solid slots without too many distractions – then the Lady in Red makes a fine choice. Not many online slot games can claim to be this laid back. If you trigger those big line hits (especially with multipliers), you might be too chilled to celebrate!
