Cupid and Psyche Introduction
Cupid and Psyche is an online pokie from Bally, based upon one of the most romantic and mysterious love stories ever imagined. The magical graphics and exciting gameplay recall the story of Psyche's love for Cupid and the obstacles she had to overcome to finally be with him.
The story of love
Cupid and Psyche is a story which was first written down in a Latin novel over 1800 years ago - and the myth that it's based upon is even older. Cupid, the god of love, fell for the beautiful Psyche, but his mother, Venus, disapproved. Psyche was nearly as beautiful as Venus herself, and Venus wanted no competition.
She allowed Cupid to marry Psyche, but with one condition: Psyche could never see her husband in daylight. It should come as no surprise that Psyche's curiosity led her to sneak a peek at her sleeping husband. Unfortunately, she woke him up and he left her, sad that she could not trust him even though he had disobeyed his mother to marry her.
Psyche's love was as strong as her curiosity, however, and she was determined not to give up on her husband. Although Venus set her tasks that were supposed to be impossible, she kept going, determined to be with the one she loved. Finally, she married Cupid in a ceremony attended by all the gods.
