Gypsy Rose is another fine looking Betsoft slot that manages to hit all the right notes. It takes the classic casino theme of a fortune telling beauty who has wound up in your neighbourhood, complete with gaily coloured caravan, to present the auspices on your gambling future.
Graphically Gypsy Rose is another stand out slot from Betsoft. The reel symbols are detailed and good looking, with full animations accompanying every different type of reel combination. The game uses a central Gypsy Rose sprite to help liven up the base-game display, with this beautiful little character laughing and joking her way through your spins. The final cherry on the cake here is the dynamic background that uses all kinds of clever full motion effects to creative an immersive environment for the base-game grid.
The sound on Gypsy Rose manages to tread that wonderful fine line between spooky and kooky. There are all kinds of strange little noises and toots playing as you take your spins setting up an atmosphere that’s packed with charm. When you take your spins the main character to the left hand side will let you know what she thinks of the game and the action on the reels features some clever plinks and plonks to narrate and punctuate your wins.
For all its charms, under the hood Gypsy Rose gives you an instantly accessible base-game. You have thirty pay-lines on which to place your bets and you can change all metrics of your wager to find just the right level for your playing style. Finally there is a clever feature activation system at work here, which we’ll explain later in the review alongside wild symbols that appear on the first and last reels of the game.
There is another clever little feature that can ramp up your wins on the reels of Gypsy Rose. Even though the wilds only appear on the first and last reels, if you manage to hit opposite wilds on the same horizontal line then Gypsy Rose will appear and toss additional wilds onto the reels, creating an enchanting board that should summon up a ton of winning combinations.
If you want to extend your gamble you can take any win you receive off the reels of Gypsy Rose and risk it on the flip of a coin. This makes a nice change from the many card flip games that been endlessly touted by a number of slots on the virtual Strip. Simply guess heads or tails – if you win you can guess again or collect your winnings, lose and you’re set for a trip straight back to the reels.
There are four intriguing bonus games on offer from the Gypsy Rose online slot game. These are all activated using a special mechanism featuring the crystal ball scatter, which only appears on the middle reel. Hit this scatter in conjunction with other adjacent scatters to determine which of the bonus rounds you trigger.
– Love Potion Free Spins – Hit the special love potion symbol on reel two and four in conjunction with the crystal ball to activate the free spin round here. With re-triggers and the chance to still earn the wild magic reel bonus, this can be one of the best paying features on offer from this slot.
– Crow Wild and Re-Spin – When you land two crows in conjunction with the crystal ball, all the crow symbols on the grid turn into wilds and lock in place whilst the reels respin, allowing you to make new winning combinations on the board.
– Magic Book Instant Win – Land in two of the magic book scatters with the crystal ball and you’ll be paid out a straight up cash bonus. There’s no hidden tricks or traps, just a healthy amount of cash that’s conjured up straight into your bankroll of up to 20x your activating stake.
– Tarot Card Second Screen Game – This is very much the signature bonus round on offer from Gypsy Rose. When you hit two of the Gypsy Rose scatters and the crystal ball on the middle three reels you’ll be taken to a mysterious location where you pick Tarot cards off a table. You then receive a bonus based on the groupings and colours of these cards. Of course, the game doesn’t use real Tarot cards – just pictures of kings, queens, knaves and jokers.
Slot Professor Says
Gypsy Rose is my kind of girl. This is a simple slot machine that uses a very easy bonus trigger to give you all kinds of different delights in a base-game that’s quite frankly a pure knockout. I’ve played many slot machines and although there are more complex titles in the Betsoft range, this game has an incredible balance of bonus features. Whilst slots like Whospunit? are definitely able to offer a big in depth experience sometimes you just want a slot game that entertains and gives you a nice win on every spin.
I usually like to say something critical about slot games in my middle paragraphs, so here we go. Gypsy Rose could have a slightly better reel game – where are all the extra wilds or random mechanisms that could have been employed here to ramp up the excitement? Still this is only a minor grumble as I have to point out that all the special symbols mentioned above pay out as normal symbols as well as activating the bonuses – this isn’t a slot where the reels so jam packed with scatters that you’ll fail to hit your combos.
Finally there are lots of bonuses available here and in my opinion the best of the bunch is the free spin round, which seems to pay out the best prizes. The Tarot card bonus is a right old lottery and although it’s the hardest bonus round to hit it can sometimes pay out a disappointing prize. However, you don’t get to choose which bonus round you take so anything extra cash you do take from the reels is always welcome.
