Romeo and Juliet Introduction
The background of this Pragmatic Play pokie game is a beautiful, starry night sky under the full moon. A few fluffy clouds float around to indicate the evening, and the reels are set simply in a frame that floats on the background. It’s very basic in its layout and that’s all you need with a good pokie. Simplicity is great for the player who likes things to be straightforward.
Romeo and Juliet is a classic story and so the game reflects this very well, with a slow melody playing through the duration of the game. While the game doesn’t have that wow factor, it does stay beautifully simple.
Wherefore Art Thou?
As with most pokies, this one has five reels with three symbols each to bet on. There’s a total of twenty five fixed pay lines on this one and the only setting you can change is the bet per line. Your wager can go up and down as you please and these buttons are in the standard custom bar at the bottom of the screen.
Once you’re ready, click play and off you go! The pay lines are fixed so be warned that you have to bet on all twenty five of them at every spin. You can pop the game onto AutoPlay mode if you don’t fancy betting at each turn, and Romeo and Juliet is a game you can play lazily.
Montague or Capulet?
The symbols of Romeo and Juliet follow a classic pattern in a classic game and most players with little experience with online pokies are probably already familiar with the pattern on this game. The standard low play icons of 9 to Ace are present and are only there to bring modest cash rewards to the pay table. They do appear often to give you a chance to have more winning combinations, so that’s handy!
The symbols you want to pay attention to are the white rose, sword, bottle of poison and two characters from the play. The rewards are higher on these symbols. There are a handful of bonus symbols on this one and Romeo and Juliet both appear as Wilds in the game. Even the name itself is enough to remind everyone of high school English lessons and Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy.
While this game is full of simplicity, it is functional and can have good prizes, which is every pokie player's wish. Romeo and Juliet is packed with bonuses but these are hard to trigger. For a simple game, this one's a winner!
