Play Cupid & Psyche Slot for Free & Review

Cupid & Psyche is powered by Bally Technologies and has 5 reels and 40 paylines. Playable from 40p a spin, the theme is a little odd and has a dated feel as it’s a popular land-based classic. Anyway, this game is all about the Free Spins Bonus feature where you collect bullseyes to turn up to 4 reels fully wild which remain for the duration of the feature.

Bally Technologies celebrates classical romance in Cupid & Psyche. Based on a story from the second century Latin novel Metamorphoses, Cupid & Psyche is a 5 reel, 40 payline slot that comes with a big bonus round that offers, free spins, multipliers and locked wild reels. Play from between 40p and £40 per spin.

The source material may be a little more highbrow than usual for an online slot but don't be put off by the classical references - Cupid & Psyche is easy to play and packed full of familiar features.

Chief among them is the Free Spins Bonus feature which is triggered by hitting the Bullseye scatter symbol – 3 bullseyes offer a payout of three times your total bet, four gives 10x your total stakes with all five boosting your wager by 25x. You'll also be awarded 12 free spins in all instances.

There are plenty of goodies on offer during the feature too - every time a bullseye appears on the reels during the feature they will fill a selection of empty spaces above reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Each gap has 4 spaces to fill with rewards on offer when you manage to do so.

When you've found 4 bullseyes, reel 5 become wild for the remainder of the feature. Find 8 bullseyes and reel 4 becomes wild too – 12 will turn reel 3 wild. If you're lucky enough to hit 16 bullseyes then reels 2 will join the other three in becoming wild giving you 4 fully wild reels!

Needless to say, the results can be pretty special if you manage to turn multiple reels wild. To get you on your way, the number of bullseyes that triggered the feature are automatically added at the start of the feature.

The base game doesn't offer quite the potential of the bonus round. Psyche the wild is the biggest payer, offering 1,000 times your line bet if you hit five in a payline. The overall variance is somewhere in the middle.

The visuals in Cupid & Psyche are fairly basic - symbols include cartoon representations of Cupid, Psyche, a harp and the Cupid and Psyche logo as well as the standard playing card symbol. The action plays out to Bally's standard game soundtrack.

For all its literary allusions, Cupid & Psyche is all about the bonus game. Awaken your inner Phil 'The Power' Taylor and hit those bullseyes and the frozen wild reels can deliver plentiful amounts of coins. Its certainly not the best Bally slot I’ve played but the potential for big wins in the feature is there with wild reels. However, I highly recommend WMS’ Black Knight II which can give you 3 fully wild reels and is highly volatile. Bally wise, I suggest you look at Thunderhorn.
