Let’s be honest, the film version of The Love Guru was pretty dire so it seems a little strange that iSoftBet decided to make a slot based on it. Thankfully there are some improvements on the movie for slots players in the form of free spins with expanding wilds and an instant win jackpots that can deliver up to 15,000 coins. Play from between 30p and £30 per spin.
iSoftBet doesn’t do ugly looking slots and that’s the case with The Love Guru – set against an Indian style backdrop with a pair of elephants flanking the reels, symbols include a number of characters from the film. Look out for Sir Ben Kingsley as Guru Tugginmypudha, Verne Troyer as Coach Punch Cherkov, Romany Malco as Darren Roanake and The Daily Show host John Oliver as Dick Pants. The elephant is the wild, replacing everything bar the Love Guru and bonus.
Land 3 of the Love Guru symbol anywhere on the reels will trigger the Instant Bonus feature which can certainly spice up the base game action. Where The Love Guru really gives reasons for amour is when you land 3 or more of the Bonus symbol anywhere on the reels – this will trigger the Bonus feature.
After a brief clip from the movie, you’ll be taken to a new screen and presented with a series of boxes. Pick from the bottom row to reveal an instant win cash prize. On the second row, you’ll determine the number of free spins. Finally, on the third row, you’ll choose your multiplier which will be applied to all of your winning spins.
During the feature, look out for the wild on the middle reel – when it hits, it will expand to fill the whole reel in which it appears and will remain in frozen in place for the remainder of your free spins.
The bonus feature isn’t the easiest to trigger but can really pay dividends when it appears. Payouts of in excess of 500 times your total stake are certainly possible here if you combine a decent number of free spins with a high value multiplier. Throw in the extended sticky wild and there are some fine opportunities to bag a decent win.
The film version of The Love Guru wasn’t very good but the slot is much more entertaining fare – it’s still not a classic but the bonus round makes it far more appealing. Get lucky here and The Love Guru can certainly leave you satisfied. If you like branded slots, iSoftBet has quite a few with 24 their best one.
