Perhaps one of the most iconic and popular musical performances to have ever been produced, the Phantom of the Opera has inspired numerous different things over the years.

Indeed, NetEnt are one of the latest companies to have taken inspiration from the legendary musical as they have been able to produce a rather brilliant Universal Monsters The Phantom’s Curse slot game in collaboration with movie producers, Universal.


Universal Monsters The Phantom’s Curse slot game is played across a grid that contains five reels and four rows that feature 40 winnable paylines in which players can pick up rewards when matching a number of symbols together in a combination.

Although there is a Universal Monsters The Phantom’s Curse Free Play version available at the top of this page, players are advised that they can play the game for real money with some rather small amounts. For instance, just €0.20 is needed to get the reels spinning, although up to €200 can be placed on each turn.

NetEnt’s ‘Max Bet’ feature can help this level of wager be achieved with one click, whilst their ‘Autoplay’ function allows for players to sit back and watch the reels spin automatically and uninterrupted for a set period of time.

Our Universal Monsters The Phantom’s Curse review of the paytable revealed that there are a number of different icons available to collect, including the traditional playing card suits – hearts, spades, diamonds and clubs. These are then followed by the dagger, the mirror, the yellow rose and the Phantom’s ring.

In addition, the icons that represent Christine and the Phantom provide players with some of the biggest rewards, with the latter of the symbols providing a reward of between 15-200x depending on how many appear on the reels.

Feature Bonuses

Readers will be delighted to know that there are a number of great Universal Monsters The Phantom’s Curse bonuses available in this slot game from NetEnt.

One of those bonuses available includes the number of Stacked symbols that can appear in this game. For example, Stacked Phantom icons can form combinations with the Masked Phantom icons and Masks can form combinations with the Stacked Masks. If five of these icons are formed, then 200x the original stake can be awarded. However, these stacks do only appear on reels one and five but do have the power to act as the game’s Wild.

In addition, there are three different bonus features that are found in this game:

  1. Pick and Click: This feature is triggered when reel one is filled up with the Stacked Phantom symbols and reel five is filled with Stacked Christine icons. Players will then have to choose from eight roses to reveal either coins or blockers; blockers will allow users the chance to advance to the next stage where they will pick from mirrors to win a multiplier.
  2. Masked Phantom Re-Spin: When a Stacked Phantom icon appears on reel one and a Stacked Mask appears on reel five, a re-spin will be provided which will see all bonus and mask symbols turn into Wilds.
  3. Free Spins: Three Chandelier Scatter symbols appearing on reels one, three and five will see this bonus game activated. The chandelier will swing across the reels and will connect to one that has some rope attached to it. If a Masked Phantom appears on that reel, it will see the rope cut. Players can play this game as long as ropes remain attached.
