Gameplay and Paylines
The group of high-paying characters in Victorian Villain consists of a male villain, two girls and a policeman. They all have different values. The highest winnings can be obtained for the lines with the villain – up to 1,000 coins. The cheapest symbol in this category is the policeman, combinations with him will bring you up to 500 coins. The low paying icons are the traditional 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. Combinations that can be made from these symbols will bring you winnings of between 5 and 150 coins. The first thing to do after entering the game is to determine your stake size. Using the -/+ buttons at the bottom of the game you can change the coin value and the number of coins per line. The first can be between 0.01 and 0.50, and the second between 1 and 5.
In Victorian Villain, all 243 lines are active: this gives you a maximum chance of forming winning combinations on every spin. You have to catch at least 3 symbols in one of the lines to get your payout.
Pay attention to the man in the hat – he is the best symbol in this game. 5 such icons can bring you up to 1000 coins.
The Victorian Villain slot features a policeman, a villain, a girl detective and a beautiful lady dressed in Victorian costumes. Also on the reels are the denominations of playing cards from nine to ace.
Special symbols are Wild (the Victorian Villain logo), Scatter 1 (blue skull and Bonus) and Scatter 2 (Search for Clues).
The Wild does not pay separately, but substitutes for other symbols (except for both Scatters) to help form combinations. It only appears on the middle three reels.
Scatter 1 pays in any position and triggers free spins. If Scatter 1 appears on the first, second and third reels simultaneously, free spins are triggered. The player chooses one of three options before the start:
• Five spins with a x10 multiplier
• Ten spins with a multiplier of x5
• Fifteen spins with a x3 multiplier
During these spins, the bet from the last game round applies. A repeat occurrence of three Scatter 1’s on the correct reels adds another five free spins.
Scatter 2 also pays regardless of its location. If three of these symbols appear on the third, fourth and fifth reels, the bonus game begins.
In the bonus round of Victorian Villain slot, which takes place on an additional screen, you’ll need to search for clues by selecting items in a room one by one. These will give you various payouts. If the word Collect appears, the game will end with your winnings saved.
You can also qualify for the bonus game during the free spins.
