In the real world, Belle Epoque Slot refers to a period of French History dated between 1880 and the outbreak of the First World War in 1914.
However, this slot from Swintt doesn’t tell the magnifique stories that transpired between both periods – rather it offers a darker outlook though with a nice charm to it.
Behind the slot’s 5-reel setup is a cluster of tree branches with autumn leaves that give some dark colour to the grid. The colourful design does make up for the light approach to the game’s bonus features.
Though this slot features a 5-reel setup, it is by no means a conventional slot. It plays out on a layout of 3-4-5-4-3 which gives punters more ways to collect symbols on the reels.
With your stake set, you get to spin and win using 720 Paylines. Quite impressively, this slot allows you to trigger wins left to right and right to left which is a nice feature.
How to play
To get in the game, you need to set your stake. The game’s bet levels are set considerably low, giving both high and low rollers a chance on the reels. You can start the game from 10 up to 200 coins per spin.
On the reels is a bottle of champagne which takes the highest point in the game paytable. Aim for 5 on the reels, and you’re in luck for a payout of 4,000x the stake. You will also find a French gentleman and a mademoiselle both enticing you with pay of 1,000x the stake when you hit 5 of a kind combo.
French-styled playing cards also occupy the reels paying at most 250x the stake and at the very least 200x the stake.
Belle Epoque Slot Special Features
The flag of France is the game’s wild symbol. When it lands on the reels, it will replace other game symbols except for the scatter symbols. There are two scatter symbols on the reels – standard and bonus scatter symbols. The standard scatter symbol offers the best reward. With 5 matched on the reels, you get a payout of 5,000x the stake added to your bankroll.
The Eiffel tower is the bonus scatter which is quite expected for a slot that draws its inspiration from French History. As with most scatter symbols, it offers the promise of free spins which would require 5 matched on the reels. This also comes with a win of 500x the stake.
Instead of a progressive jackpot prize, punters would have to make do with a payout of up to 5,000x the stake.
Return to Player (RTP)
Belle Epoque Slot flops in this area, offering high volatility and an RTP of 94.8%.
Belle Epoque Slot takes you on a trip to the past with classic symbols and a stunning background design. While the slot’s RTP might not melt the hearts of punters, its paytable does offer something to work with.
Whether you’re a casual gamer looking for some easy wins or you’re a high roller looking for huge gains, this slot offers the best of both worlds.
