Dangerous Beauty is a 5 reel, 40-payline video slot from High5 Games. It’s a fantasy-themed offering that comes with stacked symbols and a free spins bonus feature. Stakes start at 40p per spin going up to £400 for the high rollers out there.

The beauty of the title comes in the form of a trio of attractive, adventure seeking women who adorn many of the reels. Joining them, and adding a hint of danger, are a pair of big cats as well playing card symbols. They appear as stacked symbols, potentially filling up entire reels with the same symbol.

Two or more of the gals on a payline will provide a payout ranging from between 2 and 50 times your line bet. Find the same stacked symbol on multiple reels and the wins can build up rapidly.

The Dangerous Beauty logo is the wild and substitutes for all other symbols apart from the bonus. That bonus is a Green Dragon symbol which only appears on the middle three reels. When it hits as a stacked symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 you’ll trigger the game’s Free Games feature.

Once active, you’ll be awarded 7 free spins on a new set of reels – super stacked symbols are in play during the bonus feature too. It’s possible to substitute all symbols on a reel with a matching symbol which can greatly boost your winning potential. You can’t trigger extra free spins unfortunately.

High5 has kept things simple in Dangerous Beauty. The visuals certainly live up to the latter half of the title as the graphics are finely done. The features don’t quite match the stunning looks though. The action rattles along at a decent pace thanks to the super stacks but don’t expect to hit the free spins feature that often.

That said Dangerous Beauty is an ideal place for beginners to dip their toes into the online slot waters. It’s easy to play, it looks excellent and it offers a steady stream of wins. More experienced players may find the relative lack of bonus features something of a disappointment. Newbies on the other hand, will find plenty to keep them entertained.

Dangerous Beauty is a low variance game but offers plenty of bang for your buck so to speak. I really like the theme and it reminds me of IGT’s Golden Goddess in terms of gameplay and the use of the Super Stacked feature (which is also available in land based casinos under the High5 Games brand). However, if you like heroines, Lady Robin Hood by Bally Technologies is good and also a land based favourite.
