Secret Admirer is an online slot game powered by Microgaming casino software. The game features 5 reels and 9 paylines and contains a theme of romance and admiration, complete with symbols of love such as red roses, diamond rings, cupids and perfume.
This game features scatter and wild symbols, and the free spins bonus feature is triggered in a unique way. 2 or more scatter symbols appearing on the reels will be held in place while the other reels spin to re-trigger the feature and award players more free spins for each additional scatter landed.
Aesthetics and Game Play
Secret Admirer is set on a backdrop covered in a bed of red roses, and the pay table and reels contain glints of gold in keeping with the luxurious romantic theme.
On the reels, all of the symbols are relative to the theme, and display tokens of adoration such as plenty of red roses, chocolate boxes and jewelry items, among other symbols. When any of these symbols appear in a winning combination on the reels, the sweet sound effect of a harp strumming softly in the background will be played to add to the overall ambiance of the game.
The game’s wild symbol is the ‘Wild’ masquerade mask, which substitutes for all other game symbols with the exception of the diamond ring scatter. 5 of these wild symbols appearing on any active payline will award Secret Admirer’s jackpot pay of 5,000 coins.
The reel symbols in Secret Admirer include a beautiful red rose, a purple and gold cupid pendant, a perfume atomiser, a heart-shaped wreath of red roses, a ‘Secret Admirer’ heart-shaped chocolate box and playing card symbols 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, which are the lower paying symbols.
Scatter Symbol and Free Spins Feature
Secret Admirer’s scatter symbol is the diamond ring, which triggers the free spins bonus feature. However, this feature is activated in a different way to many other slots games in Australia and abroad.
Once players land at least 2 scatter symbols on the reels, 3 free spins will be awarded and will begin automatically, and the scatter symbols will be held in place during these free spins to award scatter pays with each spin. These scatter pays will include a multiplier of 2x for 2 scatter symbols, 6x for 3 scatter symbols, 20x for 4 scatter symbols and 50x for 5 scatter symbols, depending on how many diamond ring scatters initially triggered the bonus feature.
Re-trigger the Free Spins Feature
If players land another scatter symbol during the feature, the free spins will be re-triggered and this scatter too will lock in place as the free spin counter resets to 3. This free spins bonus feature can be re-triggered up to 3 times by landing 5 scatter symbols during the feature.
Secret Admirer also includes a gamble feature. With this feature, players can gamble their latest win and double it by correctly guessing the colour, red or black, of a mystery playing card.
