Cupid & Psyche Slot Machine

Cupid & Psyche is a rather deep slot based on the Latin novel titled Metamorphoses which dates way back to the second century that tells the tale of Cupid and Psyche and how they both deeply love each other but constantly find themselves having to overcome obstacles to be together.

Luckily for you the only obstacles standing in your way on the love-filled reels are landing the necessary combination of symbols, most notably Psyche who is a Stacked Wild and Bullseye Scatters which grant you an instant win and twelve free spins – it never fails to result in wins you’ll love.

This dramatic love story plays out across 5 reels and 40 paylines with a typical Bally return to player percentage of 93.91% boasted. The stakes are also typical of other Bally slot machines too as you can spin the reels from 40p up to £400 as stake per line values range from 1p up to £10!

Stack up the Wins with Psyche

The story of Cupid & Psyche lends itself to lots of potential items to be included on the reels, therefore I was bitterly disappointed when I checked out the pay table. There are only eleven symbols in total and six of these are dull playing card symbols we would rather see solely in online video poker machines, therefore it feels like Bally have cut corners and lacked a little imagination while developing the Cupid & Psyche online slot machine.

Psyche is the most valuable of all on the reels, appearing seductively with her hair done and plastered in make-up situated in front of a Greek-styled picture. She also acts as the Wild symbol with the ability to substitute for all but the Scatter symbols – just how online slot machines work most of the time, and landing her five times on a payline results in a 25x win. Speaking of the Scatter, this is the Bullseye symbol and it is required for the free spins mode plus offers very impressive Scattered wins.

Completing the rather mundane range of symbols that you’ll encounter on your love-themed adventure are the Cupid & Psyche slot logo, Cupid who is clutching his bow and ready to fire an arrow of love, a harp, plus Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10 and 9 symbols which have the smallest payouts.

Hit the Bullseye for Free Spins

While there are big wins to be claimed in the base game thanks to Psyche being a Stacked Wild, the biggest wins of all come when you land the Bullseye symbol (Scatter) on any position three times or more during the same spin. Don’t worry, you’ll not need to practice your aiming to fire at anything, instead Cupid’s arrow hits the spot and rewards you with the following perks, dependant on the number of Scatter symbols which trigger it.

3 Scatter Symbols: 3x your stake win plus 12 free spins

4 Scatter Symbols: 10x your stake win plus 12 free spins

5 Scatter Symbols: 25x your stake win plus 12 free spins

A different set of reels are used for your free spins to play out to make them appear differently from the base game, plus you’ll also notice that there are four empty spaces above the second, third, fourth and fifth reels. Each and every time a Scattered Bullseye symbol lands on one of these reels it takes up one of the positions, beginning from the fifth reel and moving in – though you always start with the triggering Scatters, so at least three of the sixteen positions are already filled.

When all four positions on the fifth reels have been filled it becomes Wild until your free spins have ran out, while eight Bullseyes see the fourth reel become Wild too, twelve Bullseyes see the third reel turned Wild along with them, and landing the maximum of sixteen Bullseyes sees reels two to five completely Wild – a tough feat, but even with one spin remaining this would result in monumental rewards!

Will You Fall in Love?

The story of Cupid & Psyche is a rather dramatic one, but Bally have done themselves no favours with the inclusion of so many playing card symbols when other items could have been included, hence why so many players opt to play it in free play mode instead. Despite the lack of bonus features it’s certainly worthwhile playing for the free spins mode (heck, it’s the sole bonus feature) where very big wins can be had thanks to accumulating Bullseye’s and turning reels Wild until your free spins have completed.
