At the first look, the Fat Lady Sings slots look like an attempt by Microgaming to go retro. The graphics look like those you would see on a traditional slot machine in the vintage casinos. In a time when slots are moving towards giving games with graphics as realistic as possible, it's quite weird to see Microgaming come up with this kind of a slot game. But a few spins into this slot, the theme sort of starts to grow on you. Every spin you make on this slot gives you a sense of reminiscence and takes you back to the Golden age of land-based casino slot machines. Maybe this is what Microgaming tried to achieve. If so, it's a job well done.
How to Play Fat Lady Sings Slots?
Fat Lady Sings slots have 5 reels and 25 paylines. The coin size ranges from 0.01 to 0.25. The maximum number of coins you can bet is 125. Once you have decided the number coins, you want to bet and it's the size you are free to start spinning. The slot is a low to medium volatile one. So, you need not worry about long periods of dry spells with this one. You will get a lot of small wins to keep your budget covered for quite some time. But that doesn't mean you won't get any big wins. The big wins do come too. Especially during the bonus rounds. So, overall it's kind of a nice balance between the both.
The 3 main symbols are the fat ladies in different opera dresses. Then there is also the lower value symbols such as K, J, Q, and A.
The Fat Lady Sings logo is the wild in this slot game. It acts as a replacement for all the other symbols excluding the scatter to help you form a winning payline.
The mask scatter symbol acts as the key to the main bonus of this game. Landing 3 or more of this symbol will start the free spins bonus round.
Here, you have the option to choose the pitch in which the singers would sing. Then the musical note that follows will break the glasses to let you know how many free spins you receive, how many multipliers you get and how much is the bonus win amount. You can get up to 30 free spins and 5x multiplier. Then the free spins start with reels that are filled with extra wilds. On top of that, you will get stacked wilds on the reels 3 and 4 to help you win lots more than you imagined you would be winning.
You also have a Gamble feature in Fat Lady Sings slots. Here, you can bet on your wins to double them or quadruple them.
Fat Lady Sings slots is a retro type game that ticks all the right boxes. Yes, there may be few shortcomings here and there. But everything cannot be perfect, can it?
