Love Potion Slot

Love Potion – video slot review

Capture some Victorian romance and winnings as you play Microgaming’s latest video slot release… Love Potion!

The soft, romantic background music that accompanies this new, nine line, five reel video slot certainly sets the mood to the Victorian theme of love. You can enjoy play on this game for a penny per line up to twenty-five cents per line with a twenty coin maximum bet per line.

Other than the wild, bonus and scatter symbols there are nine symbols of the game each requiring a minimum of three on a payline to be awarded a win. The highest paying symbol is the Victorian lady. Get five ladies on a payline and you’ll be awarded 1,500 coins.

The wild, “Love Potion” substitutes for all other symbols of the game, with the exception of the bonus and scatter symbols, to complete a winning combination for you.

The horse-drawn carriage is the scatter symbol of the game. Two scatters, appearing anywhere on your screen, will pay you even money on your triggering bet. Three or more scatters will award you ten free spins with a five time multiplier PLUS multiply your scatter win bet as well. Three scatters awards you free spins plus double your bet, four awards you free spins plus ten times your bet and five will award you ten free spins plus one hundred times your triggering bet!

The bonus game of this slot is the Love Struck Bonus and is triggered when two or more bonus love potion symbols appear on a payline. Two symbols will award you even money on your triggering bet PLUS two picks in the bonus, three awards you two times your bet plus three picks, four awards you ten times your bet plus four picks and five will award you one hundred times your bet plus five picks!

During bonus play, your screen changes to the elegant lady perusing the gentlemen before her. Choose a gentleman for her to use the love potion on. Upon your selection, he presents a bouquet of roses to her with a bonus amount for you.

My Play

I began play with $30, playing all reels at a penny per line and max coins as well as setting my bet, per spin, at $1.80. Within a total of 105 spins, the wild symbol completed a total of 17 winning combinations for me, the scatter paid me even money on my bet three times, and the bonus feature triggered once.

During bonus play, I won $14.40. When the wild completed wins for me those winnings ranged between $10 & $36. Not bad for $1.80 per spin in my opinion. I ended play ahead by $25.50. So, basically I got to spin the reels on this slot 105 times and came out ahead $25.50… it cost me nothing to play & I walked away with winnings!


I enjoyed playing this slot once I was able to see that “patience is a virtue” here! The slot doesn’t seem to hit in the beginning and then it does, and when it does it pays well. I noticed also that, more times than not, when the wild did appear to complete winning combinations for me, there was more than one wild that appeared giving me higher payouts. This is a slot I would play again if I feel patient enough.
