Who’s The Bride Slot
Who’s The Bride is a 5-reel 3-row 9 payline slot from NetEnt. If you are looking for a slot with a twist from the norm, then Who’s The Bride is your best bet. Many have classified its theme as unique, while others have gone ahead and called it downright bizarre. Released in November 2019, it is still a shiny new slot making its maiden impact in the market. Its rather interesting approach to representing Chinese wedding customs will grab your attention, as will the luxurious red and golden backdrop of the slot.
Who’s The Bride’s graphics are minimalist and elegant, and so are the symbols, which are depicted by simple cartoon-style graphics. The slots are flanked by a frame with lanterns and red curtains, just as you would find in a traditional Chinese home.
What makes the theme so controversial is how it seems to have been set in the past or ancient oriental culture. You will notice the slippers that ruined women’s feet back in the day along with the older tea sets. It depicts a past Chinese culture where women were bought and traded based on their beauty, and a matchmaker behind the curtains helped the traders on the other end choose the prettiest bride. The theme is not especially friendly to women, considering the fact that it shows how women were treated like objects for sale. Still, you can opt to focus on the game and play this oriental-themed NetEnt slot without conscience. Moreover, the background soundtrack is mellow and will not interfere with your concentration.
You will find that Who’s The Bride has the usually expected playing card symbols J, K, Q, A, and 10 symbols as well as fans, slippers, ornate jewelry boxes, teapots, and other items you would expect in a Chinese household. The highest paying symbol for you to anticipate is the golden lanterns; if you are lucky enough to land these on all five reels, you get a 111.11x multiplier on your total stake!
The game boasts of several lovely oriental brides that will randomly appear behind their curtains and act as the wilds. She will readily substitute all other symbols in the game except the scatters to convert a potentially losing bet into a winning one. The bride symbols will also return 166.66x your total bet. However, the game is quite volatile, and you will need to have the bankroll to convince the brides to give you their treasures and beauty.
If you were looking for the free spins feature on this game, then you will be happy to know that the game has a great free spins bonus. The bonus is triggered whenever you land 3, 4, or 5 golden ingots scatter symbols. In addition to 12 free spins, you will also get a multiplier of 4x, 25x, or on a really good day, 2500x your total stake depending on the number of golden ingots you got!
If you land any of the different wild bride symbols on the reels, they will lock in their respective positions. Throughout your free spins feature, these bride wilds will remain on the reels, giving you some really great wins. If you land a sticky wild bride on all five reels, you will get an additional 5 free spins, so that your total becomes 17. You can only get five additional free spins once. Again, all your winnings from this feature will be doubled by the 2x multiplier.
In this age, no one would expect a theme with such an undertone, but objectively, Who’s The Bride is a great game with a classy oriental theme and clean appearance.
If you want to play a game without too much emphasis on appearance but still looks pretty enough, then this is your game. The best part of this game, however, is the free spins part. The 2x multiplier and the chance to have 5 sticky wilds on the reels mean you could take home some decent wins. The wilds and multipliers imply that you stand a chance to take home 3000 times your stake every free spin, which is noteworthy. Again, the RTP of 96.82% is friendly enough. You will not need to trigger the free spins to take home some decent wins as the base game is also quite decent.
Apart from having a Chinese theme, (which happens to be in another two hundred or so other slots), the game’s free spins feature is the most lucrative aspect of the game, so hopefully, you will land those scatters and much to your delight, the free spins will be triggered.
