More colourful than many BetSoft slots, you will still find their amazing animation and hallmark 3D graphics in Gypsy Rose. The entire game is ‘hosted’ by a 3D cartoon gypsy fortune-teller who sits at the bottom left of the reels. There are plenty of bonuses to keep you entertained, with extra wilds, a free spins round and a pick-em game involving tarot cards to keep you entertained. As with all BetSoft games, the graphics and game-play are both flawless.
Above Gypsy Rose is a lamp surrounded by moths. The reels are full of brightly coloured symbols including crow, crystal ball, love potion (complete with wings), ancient book and many playing card symbols which have been beautifully designed. There is a soundtrack which is more lounge music than gypsy violins. When winning combinations hit there are pop-out animations, which look amazing (at least the first few times). Rose herself will laugh and dance for wins – even the smallest ones. Animations improve even more in the double-up (coin-toss) game and other bonus rounds.
Free spins will include the regular on-reel features, with the tarot bonus being a break-out game where you need to choose from 15 different cards.
Wild symbols have the biggest pay-out overall. 5 of these on a line are worth 1000 coins (and will usually make several other combinations too). On some occasions when you get 2 of these symbols, Rose will throw 3 more cards onto the reels at random which will become wild. These can turn an ordinary spin into a bigger win very quickly. Crows can also turn into wilds, depending on whether they share a line with a crystal ball. When this happens, the reels will respin with the new crow wilds held in place – again with some big win potential.
Regular game pay-outs are on the smaller side, which is standard for BetSoft, where multiple wins and bonus features are the best way to accumulate the bigger prizes. The love potion has the biggest regular symbol prize; this is worth 300 for 5 and 60 for 4. Gypsy Rose herself is next, this is worth 240 for 5 – with the book and Crow both worth 150. The playing cards make up those smaller wins.
There are two bigger bonus rounds to note. These are free spins and the Tarot card bonus. Free spins occurs when you get 2 love potions with a crystal ball on the reels. You’ll get 10 spins, which run through very quickly. Your wins accumulate and Rose will throw extra wilds as in the main game. There is an opening sequence (your future has been foretold and it is free spins) and an exploding ‘White out’ to close the bonus.
The tarot card bonus is a classic pick-em game with a somewhat complicated scoring system. Essentially, you pick 7 cards which are face down in a 3x5 grid. Once your selection is complete you see them all lined up, and each one reveals a score. The type of card and colours are then combined to give you a multiplier – which leads to your total win. I just chose and waited for the total, rather than get too involved in the complex scoring system.
3D graphics and innovative game play are a hallmark of Betsoft slots and this game is no different. The animations are superb and the different types of bonus keep things interesting. Free spins can add a lot of wins, and the tarot is entertaining – if somewhat over the top. Overall, this is a pretty good game and one I've been enjoying recently at Golden Spins Casino. Why not give it a shot? Perhaps fortune lies in your future.
