According to classical mythology, Cupid is the god of love and attraction, with Eros being his Greek counterpart. While there are many stories that involve Cupid, it's relatively rare that an online slot is made in his honour. Lucky Valentine changes this, with the god being added to the board randomly throughout the base game and bonus modes. This slot is set on the side of a pop-up stand that seemingly sells a variety of different gifts for valentine's day. Interestingly, there is no background music featured in Lucky Valentine. However, sound effects do play during each spin and whenever a combination is formed!
The least desirable symbols in Lucky Valentine include a 10, J, Q, K, and A. Next are the premium symbols, shown as a sundae, two phones, a bear, a bucket of champagne, and a love letter. These can award players with 100x, 120x, 140x, 160x, or 320x their stake size, should five form a matching combination.
Wild symbols can also be found in Lucky Valentine, shown as a wrapped present. There are also two different variations of wilds, displayed as a heart calendar and The Eiffel Tower. It may come as no surprise that these scatter icons are linked to their own bonus modes!
To start this section, let's touch on the spin modifiers, known as 'Cupids Gifts'. There are four in total that can become activated during any spin. First up is 'Cupids Reel', which can remove all of the least desirable symbols from the board. 'Love Bomb' is another modifier that will see wild symbols being added across the board.
Modifier number three is known as 'Mega Wild'. Should this activate, a giant 3x3 wild symbol will be added to the reels. Finally, there is 'Love Multiplier', which can see a win multiplier of up to 20x. This will be applied to any potential winnings before they are awarded to the player.
Lucky Valentine also comes with a free spins bonus mode, which can trigger if 3, 4, or 5 heart icons land simultaneously. Players must then pick between three hearts to determine the number of spins that will be awarded. This mode is similar to the base game but can be retriggered should three additional heart symbols land during the round.
The last bonus mode will teleport to Paris, the city of Love, with the game being played on the side of The Eiffel Tower. This can happen if players land three or more bonus symbols during the same spin. Six different envelopes will appear in the bottom left, one of which must be selected. Some of these envelopes will allow players to progress up the tower, while others may end the bonus round immediately. If players make it to the top of the tower, they will be awarded with 800x their stake size!
In conclusion, Lucky Valentine is a slot with a rather basic appearance, with sounds only being activated at specific points. On the other hand, this game comes with a huge host of features, including modifiers and bonus modes!
