Theatre of Night by NextGen is one of those stunningly-designed games that only come about once every so often. The reels and glimmering symbols are located deep in a mystical forest and it is your job to navigate your way down there and try to uncover the elusive Firefly respins. With a fabulous 600x jackpot multiplier within the bonus feature and more glimmering magic than you can shake a wand at, this game is a wonderful way to get away from it all! Read our full review below.
This forest could be anywhere, but its thick-trunked oak trees suggest we are somewhere in Northern Europe - possibly in the magic of an Irish wood. The forest clearly comes alive at night for a theatre display of animals, such as the elusive firefly, a hummingbird and a butterfly; four jewelled card suits; and a pink flower. The reel table is transparent, so the symbols appear alone in front of a forest pathway. The forest glow can be explained by the fireflies and as for the magical atmosphere - well, nobody knows. Players can opt to play with the sounds on or off, according to their preference; however, if you want a truly immersive experience, it is advisable to leave them on.
How to play
Next Gen's Theatre of Night features five reels and has 10 fixed paylines, which makes placing your bet as easy as pie. Simply choose a wager from $0.25 to £250, set the autospin function to 1-15, and then all you have to do is spin those reels. Should you hit a winning combo, a beautiful firefly will highlight the line.
The wild is your best friend throughout this game and has a range of purposes. Firstly, it acts as a high scoring symbol; secondly, it is a substitute for all other symbols. During the base game, this wild only appears on reels three, four and five; when it appears on all three reels, players are awarded six Firefly respins. During this feature, not only are wilds stacked in certain reels but also other symbols may become wilds. Should you get a full line of wilds during this feature, you may be in for a 600x multiplier win; however, you should note that it is not possible to retrigger the respins within this feature. It is also worth noting that the respins act as the only real bonus feature.
Summary of Theatre of Night
If you enjoy magically themed pokies with arguably more feminine appeal than those based on action, horror or sci-fi, you will probably really like this game. If you like to gamble on a medium volatility game with the chance of a pretty decent jackpot multiplier, there is no reason you won't enjoy this game. Easy for beginners and enjoyable for pros, the only drawback is the lack of a bonus feature beyond the respins.
