Cupid and Psyche Slot by Bally Technologies
The Cupid and Psyche slot is a colourful online video slot game powered by slot developer Bally Technologies. The game is based on the mythical love story from the book Metamorphoses written in the 2nd century. In this game, players will find images of both Psyche and Cupid as well as harps and other mythical symbols. The backdrop to the game is a view of a roman-style garden at night complete with white marble statues and twinkling starry sky. The graphics are almost cartoon-like with standard Bally casino sound effects emanating whenever a winning combination is achieved.
5 Reel Mythological Slot
The Cupid and Psyche slot is played over 5 reels and contains three rows with a total of 40 paylines. Players can set the coin denomination from 0.01 coins up to a maximum of 10 coins per payline at the start of each spin. For seasoned players, an auto-play function is available where players can set a specific number of automated spins at any time. In addition to the main slot game, Cupid and Psyche also includes a number of bonus features in the form of a Wild symbol, free spins and a bullseye bonus. On the reels, the highest paying non-bonus symbol is the Cupid and Psyche logo. Finding all five will pay out 5000 coins on a max bet of 10 coins per payline.
Psyche Wild Symbol
After the game logo, the next highest paying symbol in the Cupid and Psyche slot is the image of cupid depicted as a cherub with a bow and arrow. The final themed symbol is the harp. The lower paying symbols are all types of high card symbols ranging from nine through to ace. The Wild symbol in this game is Psyche herself. She can be used to replace any of the base game reel symbols to form a winning combination. The Wild symbol also has the honour of being the highest paying symbol of the game. If players are lucky enough to find all five across the reels, this will result in a payout of 10 000 coin on a maximum bet of 10 coins per payline.
The Bullseye Bonus Feature
The free spins bonus in the Cupid and Psyche slot is called the bullseye bonus. This is triggered by landing three or more green bullseye symbols anywhere on the five reels. The more bullseye symbols that trigger the bonus, the more free spins are awarded. Three bonus symbols awards 12 free spins with a 3x multiplier. The maximum number of free spins that can be won is 12 free spins with a 25x multiplier.
Bonus Wild Reels
The bullseye bonus feature in the Cupid and Psyche slot also includes an extra feature where players can collect and accumulate red bullseye symbols. The idea is to collect four or more to trigger a Wild reel. The total number of green bullseye symbols that triggered the round already counts toward the total. If players collect four, reel five becomes Wild. Collecting eight red symbols will turn reel 4 Wild for the durations as well. If players collect 12, reel three will join in and turn Wild. If players collect all 16, reel 2 also becomes Wild meaning four out of the five reels are completely Wild.
