The basic idea behind the Beauty and the Beast fairytale is pretty straight-forward. The beast is really a prince who is on the receiving end of a curse. The curse works by turning him into a monster and preventing him from returning to his true form until he finds true love. The problem with finding true love is that he looks like a monster, so he's kind of stuck until a certain woman comes into his life. This is the basic story behind Le Mystere du Prince, the newest slot release by Zeus Services.
About This New Game
Le Mystere du Prince uses five reels and three rows. It has a 10-payline format, and it only pays left-to-right during the normal game. The background is the inside of the mansion that the beast lives in, hiding from the rest of the world. You'll find a wide range of symbols from inside the mansion like candles, clocks and horses. You'll also find the woman and beast symbols, both of which pay for just two of a kind. On top of that, the rose in the glass that's the key to breaking the curse is the wild symbol.
Free Spins Bonus Feature
The book is the scatter symbol, and three of them will get you a set of 10 free spins. These free spins have a number of perks including a 3x multiplier on all wins and wins that pay both left-to-right and right-to-left. The background changes to the forest during this stage of the game, and you can also retrigger the free spins, which will add 10 more onto your total. The total number of free spins you have available will show in the bottom corner for easy reference.
Zeus has made sure that this bonus feature really fits into the story that the game is based on. The beast turns into the prince, his horse turns white and the wild rose is taken out of its glass container. These things all signify that the beauty and the beast are together and have broken the curse, and your free spins are your reward for getting them there. Overall, this is a cool, feature-centric game with what appears to be a moderately high volatility and chances for a lot of big wins in the bonus feature.
