Hearts of Venice Introduction
Gondolas and romance are the themes in WMS's Hearts of Venice, one of the free pokies available to try right here at Online Pokies 4U. This is the online version of the original casino pokie machine of the same name, and it carries all of the same features.
Thirteen Venetian icons populate these five reels, paying out on up to 50 paylines. Symbols of lovers, gondoliers and their gondolas, statues and hearts are inspired by the city which is arguably one of the most romantic in the world.
Hearts and Flowers
The Hearts of Venice logo is the Wild in this pokie and will substitute for any symbol except for the Feature, which is the silhouette of the Lovers. The Lovers works as a Scatter - three or more of these will trigger the free spins mode, giving you access to ten free games.
The other symbol of note is the Hearts symbol. It can appear alone or stacked, and at the end of each spin it will reveal any of the other symbols at random to complete more potential winning combinations. But the real treat is the Hot Hot Super Re-Spin feature, which can be triggered during ordinary games or during free re-spins and can win you up to 10x your bet.
No wonder the animated flame character at the top of the screen watches the reels with great anticipation for this feature to get under way! To trigger a Hot Hot Super Re-Spin, the entire first reel must be covered with the stacked heart symbol. This is locked into place while the other reels have two additional re-spins.
Any other hearts or Wild symbols that fall in during the re-spins will also be held, and at the end of the feature they're all transformed into a random symbol, which can result in a big win!
Wagers and Payouts
Hearts of Venice allows you two methods of selecting your bet: either select number of paylines to wager on and the the amount per spin, or go for the quick bet using a slider to enable you to simply select the total bet per spin. The game calculates the number of lines, pay per line and additional pays for the feature that adds up to your selected total bet.
The lady with the rose is the highest-paying symbol of this game - five of a kind will give you 5x your bet. Five of the Gondolier, the Gondola, the Bridge, the Lion Statue or the Lantern will each net you 3.75x your stake, while the Rose, the Golden Sea Horse, the buoys and Gondolier's hat will bring in 2.5x your bet for five of a kind.
The symbols then have different payouts for four or three of a kind - check the pay table for the details. All in all, this is a good little pokie to play, with a lovely romantic ambience to it. And with a theoretical RTP of 95.98%, it could keep you in love with it for a long time.
