Float among the clouds and join the god of love and romance in Cupid Wild at Heart. Powered by Blueprint Gaming, it’s a 5 reel, 20 payline slot that comes with plenty of extras. They include a host of base game features as well as cash trail, pick’em bonus or free spins with sticky, expanding or multiplier wilds. You’ll also have a shot at a Cashpot prize. Playable on all devices, stakes range from between 20p and £500 per spin.
Visually, Cupid Wild at Heart is rather nicely done – a classical cartoon city in the sky forms the backdrop to the reels. Those reels include lower value playing cards as well as lutes, goblets and a bow and arrow. Top of the standard symbols is the Wild at Heart logo which offers payouts of up to 500 coins per payline.
The red heart is the wild – it also offers payouts of up to 500 coins and substitutes for all other symbols apart from Cupid himself who is the game’s scatter. Watch out for the animated Cupid who can fly onto the reels at random, fire his bow and award a Golden Heart extra. Pick a golden heart to reveal 1 of the following features:
- Cupid Wilds feature – the cheeky angel will fire his bow and add extra standard wilds, wild plus re-spins or a wild with doubling multiplier to the reels.
- Colossal Spin feature – giant 3×3 symbols are added to the middle 3 reels.
- 5 of a Kind feature – you’re guaranteed to land a 5-symbol combination on the re-spin that follows.
- Love Struck feature – watch out for the flashes of lightning which move symbols to new positions on the reels to create new potential winning combinations.
- Bonus feature – you’ll be awarded 1 of the 3 bonus features that are usually triggered (more info below).
Under normal circumstances, you’ll trigger the bonus round by landing 2 of the cupid scatter symbol plus 1 of Trail, Free Spins or Mystery Win Bonus symbols on reel 5:
Mystery Win Bonus feature – Cupid fires his arrows at treasure chests to reveal cash prizes. Keep on firing until you land a collect.
Cupid’s Trail Bonus feature – the goal here is to climb Mount Olympus and in the process win cash prizes. First choose hearts to reach the Gates of Olympus. Hope to find a Love Dash as this sends Cupid higher up the trail. Reach the end game and Big Money and multiplier prizes are on offer.
Cupid Free Spins feature – here you’re awarded 10 free spins complete with multiplier wilds, sticky wilds or expanding wilds.
You’ll also have a shot at winning the Cashpot Prize (shown in the meter on the top left of the screen) which can trigger randomly on any spin.
As you can see, there’s plenty of action on offer here and you won’t be waiting long to trigger an extra. If you like plenty of variety in your play, then you should find much to like here. The design is impressive too, combining sharp visuals with a harp-heavy backing track to excellent effect. Listen out for Sam Cooke’s classic ‘Cupid, Draw Back Your Bow’ whenever 1 of the mini-features lands.
If you’re after a slot that’s combines a whole raft of features with top notch design, then you won’t go wrong here. And if Cupid works his magic, there’s some decent action on offer too. If you like the theme, you can retell the great love story of all time with Dirty Dancing from Playtech.
